New Protection from Smith, Leatt, Evoc and Alpina - Eurobike 2024
Does anyone else dislike the high sleeves that seem standard on knee pads now? I find them a faff to do up under shorts (especially current slimline ones, Troy Lee Motos off the noughties would be fine!), interfere with liners and are generally a bit hot

Dario's Mega Randoms - Les Gets DH World Cup
To be fair, most of the course was just really wet, rather than deep sticky slop. On the other hand, there are lots of wet roots, which for me anyway, tend to be more death on spikes than something intermediate like a shorty or argotal. But I'm pretty sure those guys know better than me!

Tech Randoms: Les Gets XC World Cup 2024
With more droppers, rear shocks (and associated pivots), are more mechanics needed than in previous years, or is it balanced out by bikes generally being a bit more durable than they used to be?

First Look: KOM Xeno Infinity Drive Hubs Push from the Disc Side
@commental: I've replaced a spoke during an enduro race - probably could have carried on. It's more about the leftover spoke (s) flapping around, being distracting or getting caught in the chain etc as they're hard to secure permanently. Each to their own on this one

Video: Flat Pedals Win Medals - But Are They Only Meant for Downhill?
@thenotoriousmic: I find the standard freeriders are generally too flexible and I get sore arches, which I partly fixed by running stiff superfeet ski boot insoles. They're great on those techy janky wet slow rides where you want your feet to wrap around the pedals and not going hard enough to blow them off. (I'm still nursing my freerider VLC for those days) As others have said, freerider pro work as a good compromise.

First Look: KOM Xeno Infinity Drive Hubs Push from the Disc Side
@nickfranko: some cassettes/freehubs do pretty much fall off, others need cone spanners or big Allen keys, which I certainly don't carry in my riding pack. And if a disc has to come off, that's a faff, especially with CL.

I rather like a straight pull - easy to remove or replace a broken spoke in the field without removing cassette. Has to be with bladed spokes though to make it easier to work with

Wolf Tooth Announces New EnCase Pump
I had that too. You need to slide the rubber seal up towards the top, pop the rubber seal out of the valve head then slide the pump down, which should take the seal down with it and lock in place, then refit the head seal. I'll find out in a few weeks if the pressure difference going up a chair lift is enough to pop it out...

Wolf Tooth Announces New EnCase Pump
@succulentsausage: glad I read this - I've just moved my EDC from the steerer to the pump as I've changed forks. The bracket feels pretty sturdy anyway, but I really don't want to lose my pump, told and tubeless repair in one go! Zip ties to the rescue...

@jessemeyers: it's weird, I never really got in with my 2fo dh - felt to me like wearing ski boots, a bit stiff and didn't give me feel of what my foot was doing. I felt the shoe got better the harder I rode it, so it was great in park style riding, but in slower (damper) enduro style it knocked my confidence. Much happier on freerider pro
