First Ride: RockShox's New Zeb Fork
Why are people so against running a dual crown fork? 190mm single crown is absurd.

Review: Six Months on Structure's Wild Looking Cycleworks SCW 1
If it already performs better than a telescopic fork in the first iteration, this has to be the future. Pretty cool!

First Look: Giant Manufactures Its Own Range of Suspension Forks
Why not? If they can make a decent product it means much cheaper bikes.

Review: 2019 Kona Operator CR - An Adaptable & Sturdy DH Machine
Can we make every frame have adjustable chainstays going forward? Seems like a pretty cost effective way to have balanced geometry for all frame sizes.

Poll: Has Climbing Become Unfashionable?
Real talk. Why do I want to waste my time and legs on boring climbs? I get that it can be a challenge but that doesn't make it fun. Much rather be chilling on a lift.

Just want to say thank you for sharing your perspective Emilie, and also for showing your support. It's great to hear from someone actually competing in this space, this is how minds are changed. Good luck tomorrow!!!

Review: Forbidden's New High Pivot Trail Bike - the 2019 Druid
@deadmeat25: throwing your bike on the ground and seeing the cranks move isn't really telling you much, you are just shaking your whole bike around. I also don't buy the argument that the freehub "bounces" back causing pedal kickback. The reason nobody is running 2 chains is because you lose any anti squat from chain growth. I don't think there is any conspiracy against floating brakes either. High pivot bikes don't experience brake jack they experience brake squat, which is actually useful for balancing the geometry of the bike. If you eliminate brake squat with a floating brake the bike will pitch forward under braking way more.

Review: Forbidden's New High Pivot Trail Bike - the 2019 Druid
I don't think you understand the graph, you might be thinking of a graph showing the forces rather than leverage ratio. The leverage ratio is getting lower as it goes through the travel, meaning it takes more force to compress the shock as it gets deeper into it's travel. This linkage is quite progressive especially for a 130mm bike.

How would the lower chain pull the pedals backward? The derailleur eats up any chain growth on the lower chain and when the upper chain is routed by the main pivot there's no chain growth there and no kickback.
