Julien Absalon Talks Origins, Racing, and Retirement
My favorite race was when Julien won La Bresse on a 26er against a field of 29ers. He had a big crash but won anyway!

@IsaacO: been there. So glad to have a shop space after decades without one.

What Are Your MTB Pet Peeves? - Opinion
@mikelevy: to be fair though the Pike service manual is satisfactory. Can’t think of any others...

Poorly written/designed (or non-existent) service manuals....and DOT brake fluid

Neko Mulally's YT Tues - Bike Check
@ryan83: me too, I'd opt for threaded given the choice. But since I can't afford a $8000 bike, I ride a YT. The pressfit on my Capra gave me exactly zero issues and its only slightly more hassle to replace a pressfit compared to a threaded....just buy the right tool for the job and get it done...then go ride.

Sam Hill & CRC Mavic Show Off 2018 Bikes & Team Kit [Updated: More Images of Sam's Bike]
@Vudu74: I'm just shy of 5'10" with a 31in inseam. Until recently, most manufacture's bikes were either too short in the top tube and reach (size medium), or just about right in these areas, but with too long seat tube and head tube (size large). So the longer trend has benefited a lot of body types (but especially taller riders). However, some manufacturers are now taking it too far, building bikes that likely perform well on steep, rough tracks with minimal pedaling and not dominated by tight, twisty old school trails (like Pole), but will suffer everywhere else (IMO). The slacker trend has also largely been a benefit on all mountain and trial bikes as these bikes until recently tended to be influenced by xc geometry and were too twitchy. Hell, even dedicated xc race bikes were too twitchy until recently updated with new school geometry. This can also be taken too far. Trail bikes that encounter much relatively low speed (lots of pedaling) but otherwise technical terrain start to feel sloppy if the head angle is less than about 66 degrees (IMO). The trend toward lower bb has been much more of a mixed result. Lower bb performs better on relatively steep and fast, sustained downhills, as well as on flow trails with berms and such. Lower bb however has not been so great on rolling terrain covered everywhere with rocks, holes, roots, and sudden changes in topography (i.e. New England...Virginia...East and North East Coast. Sure, you can ratchet, finesse, and time your pedal strokes...but you will also be losing speed as your mates on taller bb bikes pedal past you...

YT Capra w/Carbon Wheels. Frame set only available.

$3000 USD
Loaded with new components. Carbon Wheels. Rebuilt and ready to rip. This bike DOESN'T NEED ANY MAINTENANCE WORK! Perfect bike for splitting time between enduro racing, trail riding, shuttle runs, and bike park shenanigans. Will sell without wheel set for $2200. Frame set (w/shock ,headset and fork) $1800. Frame only (w/shock) $1500. New! Race Face Turbine Dropper Post New! SRAM Guide R Brakes New! SRAM X1 Cassette 10-42 New! Race Face BB92 Bottom Bracket New! Race Face Cinch Chain ring 32T New! Maxxis High Roller II Tires New! Cane Creek Headset New! Enduro Max main pivot bearing. Monarch Plus RC3 Debonair. Fully rebuilt. Like new. Light Bicycle carbon fiber All Mountain Rims (30mm internal width; 32 hole) used during the summer of 2017. Running true, these wheels are in excellent condition save a few minor rub marks from being transported on a chair lift hook. Rim tape installed, ships with tubes. DT Swiss 240S hubs with Pillar Aero X-TRA 1420 black J-bend spokes. Sapim POLYAX black alloy nipples. Excellent condition, and very easy to service. Race Face Turbine Cranks 170mm One Up chain guide/bashguard upgrade over the stock chain guide without bash. Rock Shox Pike RCT3 160mm. The fork has been rebuilt this past winter. A new charger damper was installed in summer 2017. Race Face Atlas Handlebar and Stem w/Sensus Grips I used a custom cockpit so these have been sitting on a shelf and are in “like new” condition. The SRAM X1 rear derailleur jockey wheel bearings have been serviced and are in very good condition. SRAM X1 Chain also in very good condition. YT Capra Frame has no major scrapes. Excellent condition. Enduro Max bearing upgrade was installed summer 2017 on all frame pivots. Since then, the main pivot bearing had developed some very minimal grit, so it was replaced (1/2018) with a new Enduro Max bearing. All other pivot bearings continue running friction free, so they were serviced with fresh grease but not replaced. I will ship the bike with spare bearings (except main pivot, since its new), but you shouldn't need them anytime soon. Ready to charge into 2018. This early 2015 production run frame came with a semi-integrated headset, meaning you can fine tune the bike's geometry using headset bottom cups of different stack height, and its angle set compatible. This frame is unique because later production frames were designed around a fully integrated headset (bearings drop directly into frame, no cups).
