Ridden & Rated: 13 of the Best Dropper Posts
Yeah, I have a Bike Yoke Revive on the short travel bike, it is by far the best seat post I have ever owned. Buttery smooth action, solid feel, totally foolproof design, reliable and lightweight. Somehow the KS Lev on my "big bike" is still going strong after 5 years. When it dies it will be replaced by a Bike Yoke.

Interview: Jolanda Neff on How She Became a Dominant Force in XC and her Career-Threatening Crash
To be fair, it seems likely that Jolanda needs to support her team and main bike sponsor, Trek, which like most teams is probably going through a rough patch right now, so I expect she would want her pictures to be from last year and show her in Trek colors. These pics are great so nothing to complain about here. What blows my mind is how she can do all that with those tires. Most of us mere mortals have Minions or something similarly grippy to save us from disaster and cover up our mistakes on techinical bits. Without knobby tires, the skill required is much greater

Interview: Jolanda Neff on How She Became a Dominant Force in XC and her Career-Threatening Crash
That La Bresse World Cup race two years ago was the most exciting MTB race I have ever seen in 6 years of being into the sport. Jolanda has superpowers. She runs at such high tempo and sometimes burns herself out in races; then drives on out of sheer force of will. Rides like the wind on a descent, utterly fearless and in control. I like her comments about starting with second-hand bikes. It wasn't a disadvantage and sure didn't hold her back. And she didn't say this outright but clearly would agree with Yogi Berra that 50% of the game is 90% mental. Thanks for publishing the entirety of this interview including Jolanda's sometimes long-winded and repetitive answers without editing too much -- it captures her effervescent and delightfully positive personality really well.

Review: Race Face Next SL G5 Carbon Cranks
I have the 2015 Next SL cranks (G2 or G1 I think) on my HD3 and they've been solid, taken a tremendous amount of punishment. Spin like butter with a Hope bottom bracket. My hardtail, on the other hand, is on its third set of Next SL cranks. First set failed/developed severe play at the spindle. Second set had the pedal insert come loose. Warranty service the first time was a pain and took two months plus many follow-ups just to replace an obviously broken crankset. Third set is holding so far. RF needs to work better with their distributors on that.

Wolf Tooth Components Release New Dropper Remote for Cluttered Cockpits
I just put this on to replace my KS Lev lever — it is dramatically better. No similarity at all in operation; only in location.

Wolf Tooth Components Release New Dropper Remote for Cluttered Cockpits
P.S. I was using the KS Lev button-style remote before. I hated it. This one is soooo much better.

Wolf Tooth Components Release New Dropper Remote for Cluttered Cockpits
I just got one of these to replace the remote I was using. I’ve tried several solutions and wasn’t happy with any of them. Wow, what a difference. This is a fantastic remote. Yes, it’s expensive, but this is the only thing that works well if you have a crowded cockpit (in my case, I have the Fox front-and-rear lockout lever where the remote lever would otherwise go). This remote provides terrific leverage, smooth as silk and I didn’t even think about it on my first ride with it today. Perfect. P.S. I have a BikeYoke Revive dropper, which is great. That came stock with a good lever, but it won’t fit on my bike. On my other bike I have the Wolf Tooth long lever, that one is great too. This is a good company.

Interview: Abby Long, Executive Director of the Kingdom Trail Association
All who demand specifics about the landowners are missing the point. Naming them and making the specifics part of public dialogue on the internet (and thus available via Google forever) is only going to make this much worse, will probably upset other landowners as well, and KTA obviously judged that the only chance of ever getting access to their land again -- and to protect access to the land that remains available by grace of the owners -- is to show total respect for their privacy and try to set a few years of precedent of better behavior. This is on all of us to try to encourage good behavior among riders. There will always be a few asshats in any group (fewer among MTB'ers than most sports, I think) but probably most of the jerks don't even realize that they are causing problems for everyone. Crystal clear signage at trail entry points helps with this
