Ban the Berms? – Opinion
It doesn't even have to be about competitiveness, but rather about accomplishment. Committing to the root tangled inside line of that one offcamber corner even though it is still dripping wet from last night's rain and just making it without unclipping your foot just feels great. Even better if your buddy in front or behind you nails it too and you both crack on cheering like lunatics. Moments like those can trigger proper flow. The flow that happens in your head when you're challenged to the limits of your skills and creativity. That doesn't happen if the solution is all obvious. That sense of accomplishment is why I prefer flat corners over berms. It is also the reason why I still ride a hardtail by the way. So, thanks Mike for the read!

Santa Cruz's New Hardtail Costs Under $2,000, Does Either 29'' or 27.5+ Wheels
@sandwich: Before comparing hardtail geometry tables you should check if the numbers account for SAG or not. Unfortunately a lot of brands don't specify if their measurements are static or sagged. Cotic's are sagged and I have a feeling that Santa Cruz' aren't. The actual head angles might be closer than you think.

Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
Not a specific component but durability of many if not most components sucks. But since that wouldn't be good for sales I don't have high hopes...

Pinkbike Poll - How Much Dropper Post Travel Do You Prefer?
@fr3er1d3r: The XL sizes of some manufacturers feature shorter seat tubes than sizes L used to. Kona was mentioned in the article so I took a look at their geometry tables and found the 2016 Process 153 to have a 15 mm shorter seat tube than my current 19" Cotic which is listed as size L. I would need 337 mm of seatpost extension on the Kona in its largest size. That is ridiculous.
