Review: The 2023 Yeti SB120 is a Comfortable Trail Cruiser
@Genewich: Or, you can build the Trail Pistol with a Sid and carbon wheels right from the GG site, and have a 120mm bike that weighs 26.3lbs and costs $7210. Move up to a 130mm Pike Ultimate for another $20, and you have a decent fork and still have a bike that only weights 27.3lbs. AND GG has frame colors now. Heck of a good option, now that you mention it.

Short or Long-Travel: Which Is The Best All-Round MTB?
@Ttimer: This is not complicated math, I agree. The bit I was referencing was from a previous article of his where someone asked about centrifugal force of the wheels being absent in Seb's calculations to which he responded that 'the math gets complicated'--which in fairness may be true, but something being deemed complicated does not grant carte blanche to just leave it out all together. I suspect if he excelled in his field then he wouldn't be half-assing articles for Pinkbike and Bikeradar, but that's just me.

Don't ask Seb to ever actually do the math--because he will readily omit things because 'the math is complicated'. He writes the sorta science articles for Pinkbike, and though I have no intimate knowledge of his education, I suspect he's fine with bumbling his way through a 'tech review' not because it's actually accurate, but because it generates clicks. Thank you for bringing some semblance of actual scientific methods to this article!

Seeing Sarah here (and hats off to her for her work) made me think of Alicia--does anyone have an update on her recovery? I stopped over on her Instagram, no updates there. I miss her input on the ride reviews because I feel like we have similar riding styles. Wishing her nothing but the best!

Saris Acquired by C+A Global at Bankruptcy Auction
Dude don't be petty... "I demand special treatment, and when I don't get it I hope someone's business struggles!". Could you be any more entitled? No one likes over paying for stuff, but EVERYONE was paying more during the pandemic and the supply chain issues that came along with it. Get a grip.

@deeeight: I agree with your sentiment, and I happily say I was early to the mask party when the pandemic hit. However, I would warn against promotion of falsehoods--the 'masks' required in most places served as nothing more than facial decoration. 'Mask for entry' was common, but there were very few places that enforced any sort of standard. You could use a mask made out of old race jerseys and it would still be deemed adequate--I would be very careful about drawing correlations between ""masks"" and a reduction in other infectious diseases, as it is likely not the chief factor for the decline in influenza, etc. Rather, other variables such as social distancing, remote working, etc. likely had as great, or greater, role in reduced disease transmission. Since stock can be found once again, I would suggest anyone who actually wants to see a benefit from wearing a mask go and pick up a stack of N95s (at minimum), and find a style that seals well to your face. That cotton mask with the cool Navajo design on it ain't it my dudes..

Guerrilla Gravity Launches Updated Gnarvana
Been waiting to see some color choices for GG and I gotta say that I'm here for it ALL. DAY. The fact they went powdercoat is pretty rad too--I've always had much better durability out of powdercoat than paint, so another win there imo. Literally cleared out a storage unit in OR last month and now live in hardtail territory, but wooo.. financial irresponsibility, here I come!

Nerding Out: Why a Lower Shock Position Doesn't Make a Bike More Stable
What did readers expect? This is the same author I've seen reason in comments that it was okay to leave out gyroscopic calculations of the wheels because 'that math gets really complicated'. Dude is the Neil Degrasse Tyson of PB--he writes 'sorta science' articles for clicks, nothing else. If his calculations and understanding were really that good, he would be making a lot more money doing something other than writing articles for PB.
