Video: Remi Gauvin Compares if Different Brake Pads Can Make You Faster
Yes. Practice makes you faster, and he prefers using his preferred pads.

Seemed like he was just getting a little faster on each lap from getting comfortable with the current track conditions.

Interview: Trek's Travis Brown On Experimenting With 32" & 36" Wheels
I’m planning on building a 27.5 pump track bike next summer. At my height (6’6”) I will be able to get a frame that fits me better, and it will still feel as playful to me as a 26 does to most people.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 8 - Do We Need an Even Larger Wheel Size?
That’s a wild concept! Super strange to see bars behind the fork. I love that the renderings even have a little stick holding up the bike. My inner nerd is bothered though that they called this interpolation instead of extrapolation.

I think it’s great to have options that work for everyone. People under 5’6” might never want a 29er, but that doesn’t mean larger sizes aren’t a good idea for people on the other size of the height spectrum.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 8 - Do We Need an Even Larger Wheel Size?
I’m not sure where the upper limit is, but at the very least a 32 inch wheel sounds like it would work great for taller riders. It would be easy to build a 29/32 mullet with a whole lot of travel, and 32/32 at trail bike travel in larger sizes. I don’t like a lot of new “standards” because they don’t result in any noticeable improvement, but a new wheel size could be great for the right person on the right bike.

Review: TRP's New TR12 Shifter and Derailleur
@nmilot92: I’m sure manufacturers get some steep discounts for purchasing SRAM drivetrains and brakes with RockShox suspension.

@sutter2k: No one stocks it, but most LBS can order it through one or more of their distributors. I run the Advent 9 speed and every shop I have tried to order through could do it no problem. In normal times the parts usually arrived in 2 days.

Video: Radon Launches Updated Swoop Enduro Bike
I'm that one guy you all know. With a 510 seat tube and a 150 mm dropper I have a little over 110 mm of exposed post. That means I would need a 270 mm dropper to have one long enough that I could maybe need to shim down 10 mm to slam it. A shorter tube would mean less insertion, and then that's a lot of big dude creating a massive lever arm.
