@Jamminator: You're probably right. I guess I'll never fully appreciate XC racing then.

@opignonlibre: I smell what your stepping in brother. Makes sense to me!

@bkm303: Yeah they carve those road turns really well.

@epicprone: I didn't get to see it in person, wish I would have. While watching the riders plod and plop through the tech sections on TV I couldn't help but think they'd benefit from a lower seat post, but if 80% of the race benefits from not having added weight I get it. IMO it is unfortunate that a racer who is the best climber but a middle of the pack technical rider can win races. I also watch MMA solely for the technique and don't really enjoy watching people get the snot beat out of them so... I don't identify with XC racers very much so I don't find it that interesting. They're amazing at racing bikes on this type of course and I definitely appreciate that. Much more than road races which I don't identify at all with. Again, I can appreciate the hard work and level of competition but it's not at all interesting to me. My girl Jolanda can shred a DH section and climb like a scared squirrel. That's why I'm a big fan of hers.

@PapaStone: I've ever seen a dropper post in a DH race. I don't drool over dropper posts, they make sense for trails that are more technical than a CX course.

@raphauclair: Got it, droppers weigh too much for road races.

In a tight race I wonder how many seconds could be gained by having a dropper post. Being able to maintain a proper bike position in steep and technical sections. Retaining energy from not fighting the bike with nearly straight legs and a seat in your gut. Yeah, yeah, they can outride me blah blah blah. It's not me they need to worry about though. It's the guy making up seconds in the rock garden that can also hang in the power sections that they need to worry about. I want courses so technical in the future that dropper posts can't be avoided.

Course Preview: Crisp and Clean - Snowshoe XC World Cup 2019
@dthomp325: Yep, most of the "XC" trails around snowshoe are brutally technical and not is spots that are very spectator friendly.

First Ride: TRP's DH7 Shifter & 'Hall Lock' Equipped Derailleur
Honest question about shifter position. Who rides with their shifters that far into the grip? I can't have mine farther into the grip than the inside edge of the grip or my thumb gets beat to hell and I accidentally shift on occasion (especially with AXS that I'm running now). I don't have overly large hands, between L and XL glove size.
