Review: Norco's Aurum HSP1 29 is a High-Pivot Speed Demon
No someone needs to explain why all those trendy 29 HP bikes had problems in MSA ... Maybe they are not that magical, meybe 29 and less travel 27.5 and more travel, maybe both ... But for me it is a major disappointment, bump eating wheel size + bump eating suspension design = fail?

Staff Rides: Photographer Matt Wragg's Scott Spark
@polarproton: Yes, I can imagine. My post was a kind of auto-irony ;) On a good day I can pedal up my favourite mountain with 32x36, but on a 26 bike and using a dedicated ascend trail (which means 7% + switchbacks).

@smokingtires: you simply drop them inside the air chamber.

True dat. But 30x36 on a 29er, that's quite impressive ... I do not have fireroads flat enough to run such a setup ;)

Yes it can (it should even fit a 34mm fork) and I can confirm it makes a noticeable difference. I run my inside a Pike. However I do think it would be much less noticeable when using modern Liryk with large negative chamber.

Review: Enve's New M7 Carbon Handlebar & Stem
"Why would anyone want a carbon bar?" - Enve makes you want it becasue they need to earn money, that's why. Like most consumption on this planet happens - it is not really driven by consumer demand, it is driven by greed (sometimes called capitalism). Invent something, market it and people will want it - think fidget spinner.

6 Things We Learned at EWS La Thuile
@enduroFactory: Yeah, but imho part of his skillset comes from riding flats.

6 Things We Learned at EWS La Thuile
@TobiasHandcock: You may laugh at it, but Sam rides so smoothly thanks to years spent on flats (and of course he is very talented, but one has very little influence on this). Add the ability to take you lag off the pedal immediately (see the EWS video for nice example on slick roots) and you have a recipe for winning. Riding in clips make you a bit lazy when choosing lines, you tend to smash into things, which is not good for enduro racing because then you get mechanicals (see Richie or Jared).
