Cascade Components Announces Norco Optic Link
@friendlyfoe: I'm 75kg. I actually found the megneg helped with pedal strikes on off camber pedally terrain as the bike was riding higher. I actually can't remember any more how many tokens and bands I'm running now. The bike lost its plough through anything feel, but gained pop and support. The Bronson already pedals quite well, doesn't it? My Mega doesn't feel like it has much AS, so I think I'm using the megneg as a band aid for that

Cascade Components Announces Norco Optic Link
@friendlyfoe: I found the SD on my Mega (or more likely, just the kinematics) unsupportive in the midstroke. Lots of playing with megneg, pressure, rubber bands and volume reducers fixed it so the bike is a lot more lively. For those with a SD, it's a lot cheaper than one of these links, and probably gets close enough to the link for the majority of riders

Nerding Out: Why You Shouldn't Worry Too Much About Weight
@CarlMega: good point - to sling the bike about, pop over stuff, avoid rocks, manual is all easier with a light bike. And those are all things that either make it more fun or less tiring. For route 1 plough through style, heavy may be better, I guess

Canfield Bikes Announces Third Generation Yelli Screamy Aluminum Hardtail
And I know it's the brand image, but the Canfield script on the downtube looks so 90s

Nerding Out: Why You Shouldn't Worry Too Much About Weight
You just have to ride the trails round here after some rain to know what heavier tyres feel like... Add some mud, and they're definitely harder to manual, slower to accelerate, and generally far less fun. Yes of course there's far more drag too, but heavier tyres are probably draggier even without mud. The other difference is how much harder the bike is to move around trail obstacles etc, even if the 75kg lump up top stays on the same line.

I tried to scroll straight to the comments because, well, we all know why. But had to stop scrolling because "Aaaarrrrgggghhh, my eyes!"

I have a little snowboard lock that I use for popping into a shop in a low risk area. Won't deter any halfway decent thief, and I wouldn't trust it for more than a couple of minutes. But it's easier to carry than that pointless yellow thing

Update: Brage Vestavik Dislocates Shoulder & Breaks Humerus in Multiple Places in Massive Rampage Crash
I have a feeling that all of these athletes would be doing similar stuff out with their buddies anyway if there were no cameras, no sponsorship. Yeah, there's pressure to push yourself, but little worse than out in the woods with a bunch of testosterone filled guys. At least here there is a medical crew

Pinkbike Poll: What Are You Most Picky About On Your Bike?
@loudv8noises: I have Shimano road brakes and SRAM Guide REs on the mountain bike. And I have to say I find the SRAM process more trustworthy, and more likely to eliminate air bubbles. I'd hate the wandering feel that people talk about on Shimano. I was having a bad day when I did the bleed and got a tiny bit of air in my MTB brakes and it gave it a wandering bite point, and I could barely ride!

Opinion: Freeride is Dead, Long Live Freeride
@RadBartTaylor: I really like the "use of natural terrain" scoring idea. Yes, it's impressive, but by getting so sculpted, Rampage is losing what makes it unique. It risks becoming just another slopestyle event, or Audi Nines in the desert.
