Review: The 2019 BMC Fourstroke 01 One is a Purebred XC Race Rocket
No true mountain biker would ever be caught dead using a lockout! We must constantly remind our readers how superior we are by dismissing their usefulness! Only weak, insufferable, fabulous, spandex-clad roadies use lockouts.

First Ride: Pivot's XC Race Ready 2020 Mach 4 SL
Yeah, can we keep our XC race bikes as XC race bikes and not try and make them into lightweight enduro bikes? How else are we going to justify buying like 8 bikes anyway?

Counterpoint: We Need Suspension Lockout Levers
All this anti-cable propaganda. Cables aren’t that big of a deal, and if it is there are systems like Fox Live which minimize the cables and I think everyone would be shocked if Rock Shox didn’t get AXS suspension in a year or two. Fox live sounds EXACTLY like what the author wants. Make a bike that is amazing downhill, put fox live on it and it will pedal great too with simplicity for the user. But no one talks about the alternatives or what could be done.

Review: Specialized S-Works Recon Shoe
@t-stoff: SIDIs are a shoe made by idiot roadies. Hard plastic cleats? Why even bother--they are a joke with no grip on anything. Every time I see someone, usually an older guy, about to break his neck on a hike a bike section it's because he's wearing SIDIs instead of something with actual rubber on the bottom like these Recons or Shimano XC7 or XC9.

Bike Check: Kate Courtney's Scott Contessa Spark RC
When AXS comes to forks and shox it's going to be a pretty killer combo and add a lot of value to AXS. Either that or more bikes with Live Valve (for some reason there are hardly any xc bikes, and no down-country bikes with it). The remote lockouts are super useful and nice, but it would be cool to get rid of the cables and make for better ergonomics. I would think you could use one axs controller to do the suspension and dropper. Push up and that toggles suspension, hold down and it opens the dropper. 1 paddle, 3 components controlled, all wireless.
