Review: Fezzari's 2019 La Sal Peak is a Fun & Modern All-Rounder
@nozes: Hayes So1e were my first disc brakes. They were the worst of both worlds, hydraulics and mechanical disc brakes. Luckily I fell and broke a lever, so I replaced them with a set of Juicy 3s. Yes, juicys were a huge improvement.

First Look: Mondraker's F-Podium Brings Forward Geometry to XC Racing
@endurocat: It's not that extreme. Top tube is only 580mm, so seated position will be reasonable. Wheelbase is pretty normal too. To me this is exactly what a modern XC bike should look like.

3 Pro Enduro Bike Checks - EWS Madeira 2019
@WAKIdesigns: I'm the same weight and of course nowhere near how fast or strong any EWS pro is. 20psi front/23 rear makes my bike controllable without rim strikes or other mishaps. There's no comparison between an average rider's settings and and what pros use at race pace. I could pretend I'm that good and use higher pressures but I'd get my @$$ kicked in no time.

Video: How to Track Stand With Duncan Shaw
Ι can do them semi-consinstently but left foot forward only (I'm a regular). The tip that helped me a lot: Practicing on a gentle uphill makes it easier. Very usefull skill for clipped in riders on slow tech trails. It's nice to have a few moments to decide your next move without putting a foot down. Also second practicing at traffic lights, makes commuting interesting.

Poll: Does Your Trail Bike Have a Weight Problem?
My trail ht has a 1050gr rear tyre and appropriately strong rim. Stock set up was lighter, but didn't survive for long. I'm only 70kg and try to ride smoothly, but to really enjoy our trails you need to at least beef up the rear. I loved the acceleration of the 640gr Ardent Race on technical climbs, but it only lasted 200km before it got a 5cm tear. 850gr HR2 lasted more, but died the same way. Tough/Fast Trail Bosses since then and they just get replaced when the tread is gone. There's a weight minimum that depends on terrain, rider style/weight etc. Judging from my riding mates, stronger and heavier riders put a lot more strain on their equipment. From tyres and rims to brakepads, their wear rate is way different than mine.
