Deviate's Lugged-Carbon High Pivot Downcountry Prototype - Eurobike 2023
@deviatecycles: Thank you very much for this insight! :-) It´s been many years in the past since I´ve ridden a HP bike, so many things might have changed since then. I personally think that 120 to 130 mm rear travel could be easier constructed with a "simpler" design, like linkagedriven single-pivot, or split-pivot, with more focus on pedability and reduced breaking forces. Assuming that a shorttravel bike gets a lot of pedal-time in the saddle?! Anyway - looking very much forward in your possible shorttravel future-offering. Many greetings. :-)

Deviate's Lugged-Carbon High Pivot Downcountry Prototype - Eurobike 2023
So this is (for now) very similar to the Moorhuhn build by Huhn Cycles, isn´t it? The only thing from my personal liking is: 125 mm rear travel doesn´t need a high pivot. Apart from that: Nice peace of art. Love it. :-)

[Updated with More Ways to Watch] How to Watch UCI Downhill, Enduro, & XC Mountain Bike World Cup Racing in 2023
Any info of a pay-per-view option? I would prefer this over a monthly subscription/abo, because I´m not very much interested in other cycling disciplines.

How to Choose the Right Size Mountain Bike in 2023
It´s like it is: Manufactors should add another in-between size like M/L. Being 180 cm tall I always have to decide between a slightly too short medium or a slightly too long large. Especially on bikes with so called "modern geometry" from the last few years, whereas the previous generation geometries put me pretty fine on large. Sizing up or down is not an option anymore once you have experienced the right fit and numbers.

Are Shimano & SRAM Developing Brakes For Headset Cable Routing?
Brake levers gets "revised", so cables run parallel or closer to the handlebars. That's not a bad thing, I think, as you can still route the cables the traditional way external or internal around the head tube into the downtube. Or if you like, through the headset and/or stem/headset - the last thing i would ever do. So while this "innovation" is only driven to archive a "clean look" here's a question: Do we get revised shifters for derailleurs, dropper-posts and lock-outs as well? So these cables run parallel or closer to the handlebars, too? Otherwise an almost cable-free look is not really possible, isn't it? And NO(!) - I´m team hydraulic/mechanic (the real K.eep I.t S.imple) and don't plan to get any electronic devices for shifting or dropper. Apart from light or navigation no batteries for me.

Propain Pauses its Factory Race Team for 2023
So Propain can now focus on designing a 110-130 mm XC/DC/Shorttravel-Trailbike. I would buy it in a heartbeat. :-)

Video: 6 Downcountry Bikes Ridden & Rated - Field Test Roundtable
@pbandjam: Jepp - that would be helpfull. I have the same measurements like Kazimer, while Levy, Sarah, Matt or Alicia are 2 cm shorter, and Henry beeing a smidge taller than me. All of them can go M or L sizes. Maybe they do an additional podcast and include this as a topic ...

Video: 6 Downcountry Bikes Ridden & Rated - Field Test Roundtable
I´m mostly interested in SIZING, to be honest. All bikes tested here are mediums, while the bikes from the last DC field-test were larges. With 180/84 cm I´m always between a (too) short medium or a (too) long large. Just remembering Henry Quinneys quote "some bikes are almost getting too long", from the last field-test. It just makes it really difficult for me to decide which size to go for the next bike with all this modern geometries. Up- or downsizing was easier with more conservative geometries, I think ...

Video: Welcome to the 2022 Downcountry Field Test
@mikelevy: yes, you can´t serve everyone, it´s all good. Arc8 Evolve FS (120 mm Version), or the new generation BMC Fourstroke LT would be great. Maybe these bikes, as an example, could make it for the next DC field-test. :-D Looking forward to the ReeB SST review!
