Poll: Does Your Trail Bike Have a Weight Problem?
I have both a 27 lb bike and a 32 lb bike. At the start of each ride I can feel it clearly, and in the punchy climbs, but other than that you just get used to whatever you're on pretty quickly -- mainly I just want to be on something similar to buddies so we agree on the same trails to ride.

First Ride: Zipp Enters the Mountain Bike World With New 3Zero Moto Carbon Wheels
Flex in frames, bars, wheels; such a tricky one to figure out when buying stuff - I agree that the right amount of flex makes sense but I wish there was some way to measure it; even if it was a made up subjective feeling unit like 'it scores a 3 on the stiffy scale' but something more scientific would be even better.

Light bicycle carbon clincher wheelset, 25mm depth. Novatec hubs, shimano driver. 1400 g -- this is a great climbers wheelset. Its stiff and light. It saved a pound off my stock wheels and was a huge difference in acceleration and steep climbs. Plus, its carbon and that makes it awesome. Rim brake, comes with special pads. Tubeless ready. 600

Now Finished: Ask Me Anything with Greg Minnaar
You have amazingly survived at the top for so long, and you find a way to always get faster. Do you find yourself changing your style over time along with bike geo changes and overall progression? Interested in how you reflect on this.

Staff Rides: Levy's Giant Trance - A Lot of Pivots, Not Much Travel
That is a lot to think about! looking forward to how you break it all down. So when you are riding this thing, are you concentrating on what each of these things are doing, or just riding aloof and noticing what stands out good or bad? I am so guilty of overthinking what I want something to feel like, it must be tough with so much going on. For the fork, I am curious (likely answered in your upcoming review) - in what situations does it feel supportive, when does it feel plush? - do certain movements make it firm up? like braking, landing while braking, airplane landings? - why do you think they came out with a 130mm fork as opposed to a much more popular 160mm ? Do you think the design scales up in travel? - I guess there is no mud guard option... Thanks, and really cool looking bike. I'd ride it for sure!
