First Ride: Norco's New 2020 Optic is Short on Travel, But Big on Fun
@ceecee: To be fair, Bryn is Bryn and Levy (while a hell of a lot better than me!) is Levy.

Cotic Announce New BFe for 2020
Just built up a BFE and my full suss has been sitting unused since! This bike is fun, the geo is dialed and at least for me, the "old" frame with 142 rear was perfect so I could pillage the wheels from the full suss. #142aintdead

Photo Report: Pedal Through the Pain - Tour Divide 2019
Great pics and words Eddie. Wondering if you were able to drive the whole route exactly as the riders ride it, or if you have to jump on and off other roads to get your pics?

Interview: Martin Maes - "I'm Not Guilty... I Just Made a Stupid Mistake"
How hard is it for the UCI to provide event doctors with the banned substance list? And on the flip side, how much more clear can it be this was a medically necessary and appropriate use of the banned substance and it should qualify for an exemption? If they have to issue a punishment of some sorts, so be it. However, stripping Martin of his wins and a 3 month ban seems totally outsized considering the circumstances.

Review: Forbidden's New High Pivot Trail Bike - the 2019 Druid
Owen Pemberton used to work for Norco which also features size-scaled RC and if I remember correctly, he achieved that on the Sight, Range, etc by changing the position of the BB on the main triangle.

Donate to the Trails in Marin & You Could Win a Stumpjumper
@Jsmoke: Compromised? As in infiltrated? That's a little too Deep State for me. If you think A4B doesn't represent core users, so be it. I don't think being a core user is mutually exclusive with trying to change things via formal means, though. No group can represent everyone and there's plenty of riders out there that are happy to stash tools in the woods and carry on with no hope for change via the legal process. After the mtb community has been burned so many times by Marin, I get that stance. Absolutely no judgement. But to say the delay in opening trails like Split Rock falls to A4B not following through, that's just off target. The time frame is strictly up to Parks, and in the case of Split Rock, also concerns MMWD. Also, A4B never said the loss of one trail would directly lead to the opening of another. Far from it. Getting any kind of quid pro quo out of land managers in Marin has always been an uphill battle. They have all the leverage. We can make proposals, they make decisions.

Lots of valid frustration here — and that's exactly why A4B is trying to change the situation in Marin! If you look around at other communities that have turned around a long and strong opposition to mountain bike trail access, it didn't happen over night. Trail advocacy in Marin is hard and often thankless. The alternative is being sarcastic and passive which have been turning things around since never. You can always ride whatever you want whenever you want and take your chances. If the lawman was so omnipresent to completely shutdown all the good trails, then no one would even bother anymore. Yes, some good trails have been decommed. But let's be honest — trails built illegally usually have an expiration date. Not always, but often. Enjoy them, then move on.

Trailforks Introduces Trail Grade Visualization
Thank you for making a cool, free, made for/by mtber app even better. And for not being Strava.

Review: Santa Cruz Bronson V3
@Captain-Ron: I had 350s from a stock Norco Sight build and they came with 36T. I upgraded wheels and got 350s again and opted for the 18 just to compare, but thought I'd swap in the 36 after trying the 18. Nope. At least where I live and ride, that faster engagement is a non-issue. And I like that the 18s are quieter. @heinous: I've pulled apart my 350s about once a year for the last five years — not only is there no visible or tangible wear on the star ratchets, but the grease is usually super clean too. DT for the win for ease of service and durability. I have 240s on my cross bike, but only because they were part of a crazy good deal on a wheelset. The upcharge to 240s seems unnecessary to me, but to each his own.
