Opening Weekend Survey 2018: What People Are Riding at the Whistler Bike Park
@yeti951SD: I think at this point they are still a lot like Hope- vastly aftermarket, rarely OEM. While impressive, this is also a one-day survey in a specific market, so you need to take that into account too.

Ratboy's and Loosedog's Santa Cruz Hightower LTs
@DARKSTAR63: I should have qualified that it is "incredibly soft for racing". He was known to have the softest set up of basically any racer on the WC circuit. This Vital MTB slideshow (sorry PB) from a few years ago touches upon that: https://www.vitalmtb.com/photos/features/We-Rode-The-FOX-Pros-Bikes,7837/Slideshow,0/bturman,109

Ratboy's and Loosedog's Santa Cruz Hightower LTs
@DARKSTAR63: I don't want to know the details so I can change my own personal set up, but just knowing what pros run and how they run it is simply interesting. Bike checks serve as one of the main ways to geek out on that info. Also, Josh is known for running incredibly soft suspension- something we know from prior bike checks :)

Development Story: Cannondale's Wild New Single-Sided, Single-Crown XC Fork
@Mojo348: That's not what Cannondale said. They said they like being different and doing things differently, but this fork does have it's benefits besides just standing out. From the article- "And one thing that Lefty has done that no other fork has is being excellent in what we call loaded friction,'' Boobar explained. ''When the fork is seeing loads and starting to bend, the roller bearings inside keep it from having any friction whatsoever, whereas a traditional fork with its bushings starts to get bind-y and reduces that small bump feel.'' The argued performance benefit of this fork is that it is as light and as stiff (or stiffer) as the traditional competition but with better small bump feel when loaded at an angle.

5 Cross-Country Bike Checks - Sea Otter 2018
If you look at the amount of drop from his seat height to his bar height, it's not that crazy at all. His hand position is almost level with his saddle. Big wheels on a small bike.

Bike Check: Eliot Jackson's DVO Sprung Giant Glory - Crankworx Rotorua 2018
"Currently, he has the high-speed compression fully closed to get some more bottom out resistance so they can run lower pressure. The idea is to get more ramp up from the compression side instead of relying on the air spring." I remember Dave Garland saying the exact opposite last year when setting up Eliot's suspension according to their data acquisition equipment that was strapped to the bikes. More open compression circuits as damping shaft speeds increase... Would be interesting to hear about the full 180° and why it's different now.
