Olympic Favourite Crashed Due to Lack of Training Ramp
Hope he heals well. I would have also been that person to not realize a feature was changed, so am sympathetic.

Thought Experiment: Where Is It Worth Saving Weight on a Trail Bike?
@privateer-wheels: I agree that weight in the hub will not matter too much. Based on your business, I guess you've spent a considerable amount of time thinking about this. My hunch would have been the bulk of the weight would always be in rim / tire, vs hub–to the point that hub weight is negligible.

Thought Experiment: Where Is It Worth Saving Weight on a Trail Bike?
I expected to be quicker moving from 26" to 29" wheels. Larger wheels have ~11% great circumference right ... so must be faster?? Expect I wasn't. On non-technical smoother climbs (fireroads), smaller wheels had the speed advantage. But technical climbing was speedier on 29". I didn't account for pushing the increased rotational mass. Associate prof in Physics: "So yes, adding mass to the wheel is worse than adding mass to the frame---but only when accelerating. Still, every little bit helps." All of the gory details and science from his article is here: https://www.wired.com/2016/06/cycling-physics-extra-mass-bike-wheels-enemy/ BTW, the best way for me to lose weight on the bike is to shrink my body. IE keep a careful diet, get enough sleep, lifts the occasional weights and of course ride and ride.

Video: Decoding The Best Mountain Biking Body Position - How To Bike with Ben Cathro Episode 3
My XL Norco Optic has a reach of 510mm, so it's very forgiving for a forward body position. My habit from riding mostly steep HTA bikes is to lean back still.
