First Ride: Trek's New Supercaliber XC Race Bike
It rides so much better if you over-fork it, put a dropper on, and add 2.5 tires. Then the bike really comes alive...

@opignonlibre: it’s a bit like watching a speed walking race.

Photo Epic: Off to an Electric Start - Mont-Sainte-Anne XC and eMTB World Champs 2019
If the UCI legitimizes it as a racing format, bike manufacturers have a platform to stand on to sell more of these. I get that ebikes are here, but to make this a world champs race is confusing, clearly these aren’t the fastest XC riders on the planet- so what’s the point? Every competition in the world ultimately determines who the best is, except this race.

@Linkpin: Because they are silly and people say all kinds of crap to justify them, but they bring more problems to our sport, especially in America. To me they belong at a ski resort as a "fun tourist toy". Point being here, bike racing is human powered, this is an embarrassing attempt to legitimize it. Fun fact - did you know the UCI is in a fight with Federation of International Motorcycling over e-bike racing? Look it up - so if FIM is wanting in on e-bike racing, then you know they these are motor-cycles.

Bike Check: Sam Gaze's S-Works Specialized Epic - Vallnord World Cup XC 2019
It was discussed above, but here is the summary- bike is one size too small for him, but some pro’s keep sticking to their old fit. Just because they are faster then us mortals, doesn’t always indicate they are fit on a bike properly. There are other pros on the right sized bike with an updated fit. You can see the same stuff on some pro road bike setups; one or two sizes too small. It’s old school. Some pros are old school and some aren’t, just like us.

Apparently everyone lives in British Columbia or Southern Utah. Serious though, a Lyrik?

@muyguapa: you mean like this - I saw you on the trail the other day, I think that was you...not sure, because it was a bike that looked like everyone else’s...

DirtySixer Makes NBA Star LeBron James a Custom 36"-Wheeled Mountain Bike
I have both wheel sizes, different horses for different courses - ever ridden in SW USA, Utah, Arizona, Colorado? The trails are super tight, technical, rock crawling, that makes riding a 29 wheel size very difficult. So I bring my 27.5 when I visit. However where I live, 29er is better. My favorite comments are like yours, where people claim one wheel size is best - perhaps the trails where you ride, or the type of riding you do, favors a 29er - where as others, a 27.5 works better.

Santa Cruz Announces New Highball Hardtail
I disagree, i have both and there is a huge difference between a cyclocross/gravel bike and a hard tail mountain bike - geometry (your pedal and body position) is still very different, drop bars do make a huge difference vs a flat bar, and suspension forks aren’t needed. You could get by with riding this bike with skinnier tires, but there still is a big difference.
