Review: How Canyon's KIS Could Change Mountain Biking, and Why It Probably Won't
It seems like the problem it's trying to solve and the compromises are misaligned. My very quick summary of Henry's thoughts is basically: Helps on technical climbing to fight the wheel flop that is a consequence of slack head angles, but then doesn't feel great when descending. But picking that apart a bit, you get the slack head angles on bikes that are *prioritizing* descending ability. So it makes little sense to me to go and add something further on to a bike to "shore up" a trait (climbing) that wasn't really a design goal of a bike at the cost of the thing that was the main purpose of the bike.

The 2024 Berria Mako Uses An Internal Shock For XC & DC
@sherbet: Reading comprehension fail - I never said putting the shock in the frame hinders performance. I said it's only worth it if the status quo (i.e. not doing it) was hindering performance in some way. i.e. the marginal increase in stiffness (or whatever else it is that's claimed) only matters *if that was actually a problem in the first place*, which it isn't. You'd make a terrible engineer.

The 2024 Berria Mako Uses An Internal Shock For XC & DC
@sherbet: The comment section is often cynical for good reason. Some tradeoffs for a bit better aren't worth it if the amount better (for whatever definition of better you choose) has no noticeable effect on the product but what you're trading away to get there does. Or to put it another way, "a bit better" is only worth it if the alternative was hindering performance in some way.

Deviate Announces New Chain Guide
I think these are less about preventing chain drop than they are about increasing chain wrap. At least that's what Forbidden say theirs is for.

[UPDATED] Elite Finals Results & Overall Standings from the Loudenvielle DH World Cup 2023
I think Gwin even made Cedric better - because he kinda gave him another pro rider to talk to, tell little stories etc and he ended up being a bit calmer and had more interesting stuff to say.

Video: This Has Never Happened Before | Inside the Tape With Ben Cathro
I'll repeat what I saw another Scotsman comment on a different article (a review of rain gear) but is appropriate here and still my favorite Pinkbike comment ever: "Have you tried just getting wet?"

His segment on one of the earlier episodes of the Brett Tippie podcast is pretty good too, worth a listen.
