4 Key Stats from World Cup XC Racers in the Pinkbike State of the Sport Survey
On the soccer side of things the women's national team crushes the men's in terms of viewership and the women get paid way less still. Also it's a chicken and egg scenario. Is the financial support less because the viewership is less? Or would the viewership be higher with higher financial and developmental support were higher? Male sports have always had a leg up in terms of financial and developmental support. Why not give women the same platform.

5 Things We Learned from Red Bull Rampage 2022
@Vraiphil: Agreed. Godziek had a great run, but it was the most slopestyle-like run of all of them. He didn't have any big mountain chutes or tech, just big tricks. He had the best Rampage moment probably with the step down 3 to canyon gap flip, but his run in general was kinda big polished jumps more than most.

It’s Time to Recalibrate Our Ideas About Chainstay Length
@vitaflo: yeah you're right. It's more of a front center to rear center than reach. Lots of measurements go into front center.

It’s Time to Recalibrate Our Ideas About Chainstay Length
I was confused by that comment too. A shorter rear center means that rear wheel is further under you putting more weight on it. I have an argument for shorter chainstays on downhill bikes as compared to Enduro, trail, and xc. If you want your front and rear center to be similar lengths and therefore balanced, I would argue that you should take this measurement from your center of mass straight down with gravity when you're in the attack riding position. If you're on a 10% slope, then that line would be slightly more forward than if you were on flat ground resulting in wanting shorter chainstays and longer reach to keep that balanced positioning on the bike. If you were on a 20% slope, that line from your center of mass would be even farther forward meaning longer reach still and shorter chainstays to stay balanced. If you don't want to keep extending the reach, you could also slacken the HA because the distances you're measuring is from a line straight down from your center of mass following gravity, then a measurement from that line to your axles. To have the best balance, those should be equal at the steepness of terrain you're riding.
