First Ride: Yeti's 2020 SB140 Doesn't Want to Be Confined by Race Tape
Not sure I understand who the person is that will pick this over the SB130LR. Seems like lineup bloat to me. Not every niche needs filling imo.

Delta Airlines Eliminates Fee for Sporting Equipment Including Bikes
Aircraft emissions are tiny compared to other modes of transport and Industry. When you recognize the benefits of people traveling and experiencing different cultures, values, and the common issues we all face, I think it’s a net positive to have an informed & aware society rather than just 1% less CO2.

Pinkbike Poll: Has Your Opinion On These Products Changed?
All 0's. Don't prejudge things and be as open as possible to new ideas without bias. Hating on something just because its new or you can't yet afford it or whatever is a waste of time & energy that could be put to better uses like into riding your bike.

Video: 9 to 12 Year Olds Absolutely Destroying on the New Commencal Clash Kids Bikes
What do these things weigh? Biggest obstacle to mountain biking for my boys (7 & 8 ) is their damn bikes are heavier than my 160mm CF enduro bike and kids are ~60 & 50lbs each... its so difficult for them to pedal a bike 1/2 their weight uphill for any length of time.

The Privateer: Factory Pro Suspension Testing & Setup in Portugal
@adamprice: I think what frustrates me about suspension setup, even as someone who technically knows what each setting does and how to approach a specific problem, is feel vs speed. Do you veer towards a harder setup that is likely more supportive and therefore faster? Or towards one what's softer, more comfortable and provides more feel? And knowing when you've gone too far in the speed direction is what seems really tough to gauge (at least for me). I find it hard when there isn't anything specifically WRONG that the bike is doing but you just know there is more to be found in the setup.

The Privateer: Factory Pro Suspension Testing & Setup in Portugal
@gally-nh: I think the rear is tough to judge bike to bike because the linkages in the rear suspension make a big difference. The fork is easier to compare bike to bike because the differences between head angle & front center will be pretty small factors if riders are basically same weight.

The Privateer: Factory Pro Suspension Testing & Setup in Portugal
@adamprice: Thanks Adam that makes a lot more sense now; 66 to 90psi just seemed way too extreme of a jump. This was a cool video, I've shared with a bunch of friends (even those who don't MTB). Good luck this year.

I don't understand how he was so far off on fork pressure... 66psi to 90psi w/ same volume. That's huge. His sag must've gone from like 35% to like 20%. I am about the same weight as Adam running basically same fork at similar pressures. I guess I will try going up in pressure again (started at 78psi factory recommended settings out of box) but it felt terrible and i've only just started getting along with the bike at mid 60's psi (fully open LSC/HSC & ~7-10 rebound clicks depending on psi). I know Adam is hitting stuff faster and harder than I can but I am still shocked at the fork changes.
