Review: Marin Mount Vision - Strange Looks, Intriguing Performance
@emptybox: I think there is nothing new. Banshee had also high anti squat and light compression tune on his first generation spitfire for example.

First Look: Mondraker's F-Podium Brings Forward Geometry to XC Racing
Try the forward geometry first :-) More important than the length of the bike is the mass distribution. Compare a bike like a kona process(long front and short chainstay) to an old propain (long chainstay short front) and to a bike with a balanced geometry. I think you will be surprised. The best bike I owned for climbing was the mondraker factor xr 2013. Amazing climber. This bike proves me that a FS is more efficient than a hardtail.

First Look: DT Swiss' New Ratchet EXP Hub Design
@Tmackstab: Sure they make their own bearings. Does it make them better than the ones from a vast compagny with 77 billions revenue, that can invest millions in development ? That also works for medical and healthcare compagnies (https://www.skf.com/il/industry-solutions/medical-and-health-care/index.html ) ? I am sure CK bearings are great, but why should other bearings be worse ? According to Flowcheckers the seals of the SKF are worse. OK, that seems at least something concrete.

@ssteve: you wrote "CK bearings are made in house and essentially (looks like it anyway) have double sealing and are held to much tighter tolerances." Any source ? Because to me it sounds like pure BS. SKF has about 50 k employees and is one of the largest compagnies in Sweden. You think they are not enable to produce within the same precision as CK ? I doubt it. I am sure CK has good bearing but others companies too. AFAIK, the main difference between high quality bearings and premium bearings is the grease and thus the range of speed that is supported by the bearing. Nothing relevant for MTB use.

Now Finished: Ask Me Anything with Trauma & Orthopaedic Doctor Henry Turner
Hi, 1. Mountain biking is a recent sport. What kind of health problem do you expect to see on an avid old rider ? 2. While riding a mountain bike, the body is exposed to a lot of vibrations or small hits. This is even worse with a hardtail or rigid fork (like trial riding). Do you think that these hits or vibration might affect the body on a long term ? Thanks fr your answer.
