Recapped: The Complete 2018 Pinkbike Field Test
@xphysnerd: Sure, that'd help and I've done exactly that. We've even created our own segments w/ very clear start and end lines. It's still not nearly accurate enough to base a bike's performance on when 50k people are going to be reading it, with many basing their opinions on that time. It's Freelap or nothing :)

@mikekazimer: I think I have more fun and make more noise, though.

@megaold: The Giant goes through all the things, including trees, large rocks, and anything else that's in the way!

So we (and especially myself) usually don't look at geometry or weigh a bike until we're well into the testing phase, sometimes not until afterward for that exact reason. I've been surprised so many times over the years because of this!

@BenPea: Child labor, actually. My puppy mill got shut down so I had to change it up.

Yup, for sure. We have a downhill bike group test that will be released soon. Stay tuned :)

@xphysnerd: I'm not specifically talking about random variances, but about the conditions. But the variance is Strava is all over the place due to GPS drift (I think that's what it's called) - I've used a stopwatch combined w/ Strava many, many times and it's all over the place. I've seen as much as 1.5 minutes over an 8-minute climb or descent. I can't even count how many times I've done a lap with someone, both of us using Strava, and then our times are 10% off despite riding side by side the entire time. Strava is neat and it has a place, no doubt there, but not when thousands of people are going to be looking at the timed results, with many of them basing their call on what a bike's time was. There's so much more to it. But yes, we'll use more Freelap timing in the future. Comparing times does certainly have a place :)

@BenParfitterole: Hyperbole. My point is that yes, there are bikes we didn't test and there always will be ;)

@motosinko805: Up-duro is such a weird off-shoot of down-country, isn't it?!
