Review: Giro's New Manifest Helmet
I really like the look of this helmet (subjective, I know) and I respect that giro is intentional in their designs and they don’t just check the boxes or copy their competitors. I’ve actually been at Giro in Santa Cruz (the facility’s unreal) and Unfortunately Kaz, understandably didn’t explain how giro goes about making helmets. They measure “coolness” through a wind tunnel that they have in house and they map vent patterns to manage airflow instead of just poking holes in a the helmet for reviewers’ “vent counts.”

Levy's 2020 Tech Predictions: More Integration, More Coils, More Aluminum, Less Suspension, Leaner eMTBs
I think the word you're looking for is inflation. Also electronics a terrible example because Cycling can never be supported by the volume of mass market electronics. It's not even apples vs. oranges.

Interview: Bernard Kerr on Racing Anaheim and Being A Rider/Manager on the World Cup Circuit
Kerr's looks too slow for an SX main...or qualifier for that matter. When I was a kid I raced against Dean Wilson Alberta and he was laying down faster times than most guys on bikes with bigger displacement, some "pro" cat guys. He was like 12...on an 85.

First Ride: Pivot's XC Race Ready 2020 Mach 4 SL
@mikekazimer: I somewhat agree with you. This is a short travel trail bike, not an XC weapon. Though it may be "capable" (there's that word again) to dabble. Back in the day we called this category marathon XC. But Pivot billed it as a cross country bike, I think Pivots spec isn't too far out. While an overall good and detailed review, Jamie's biases (and PB's for that matter) for a trail bikes are evident. Is it possible that an XC enthusiast should be reviewing an XC bike? Maybe that's Jamie and I'm just out to lunch. 2cents.

Spot on. It's questionable if this is even an XC bike anymore.
