How Did the COVID-19 Pandemic Affect Bike Parks in 2020?
They didn’t even open Stevens Pass despite their ability to capture much of the traffic that usually would be crossing the border for Whistler. They claimed to do it for “safety” but apparently safety was only a concern in WA.

Video: Marin's Alpine Trail Enduro Bike is Now Available in Carbon
I don’t get what performance gain people think they are getting for the money. I’ve had the same bike in both carbon and aluminum and couldn’t feel the difference in weight or damping characteristics. I’d rather keep the $700.

Ask Pinkbike: Tips for Beginners, Brakes Issues, Drilling Carbon, & Shock Tunes
With the exception of horses, yielding rules on trails always are ranked by momentum. The heavier/faster you are the more damage you could inflict on another user, so the responsibility is placed on the user with more momentum to slow down. That’s why cars yield to bikes on the road and pedestrians in crosswalks, and why bikes yield to hikers on the trail. It’s also why defending bikers yield to ascending bikers on trail. The rules are in place for a good reason and should be followed.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 18 - Are Electronics on Your Mountain Bike Good or Bad?
Mountain biking is bad enough for the environment already. Adding in carbon parts that can’t be recycled at the end of their life, batteries that use toxic materials and don’t hold a charge after a few years, and motors that are not user serviceable all only make it worse. I like parts that are simple, user serviceable, durable, and recyclable at the end of their life.

First Ride: 2021 Kona Honzo ESD Hardtail
My Ragley HT weighs 36 lbs with XTR 10, sturdy wheels and tires, and pedals. It’s only 1lb less than my 180mm FS bike, and I wouldn’t change a thing.

Video: Racing Psychosis - What Bikes, and Tires Do the Pros Run? - Crankworx Summer Series
@Honda750: Yeah, I've been in the same boat with the SRAM brakes since I have them on three bikes, am used to the feel, and have the bleed kit. I would never actually run a smaller rotor in the rear, but I found their commentary interesting. I've been running 4 piston brakes with 200/180 and metallic pads for years, but have been thinking about upping that to 220/200. Now I'm wondering if I should look into 220 for the rear as well.

@Honda750: https://enduro-mtb.com/en/rotor-size-myth/?fbclid=IwAR0XHahnvYzvtGG9rJ6FR50GSFCEOfFHDha29ZoaQgz9P2hrmr7hTNk9gqw Looks like Enduro Mag not only agrees with you, but even goes so far as to suggest that the bigger rotor should be in the rear. That is the exact opposite of how I've always thought about it. Maybe it's time for me to make the move to 220/220 to help slow my 250 lbs of dad bod down without so much brake fade.

With so much more braking power coming from the front wheel, I'm not sure why so many people run the exact same caliper/rotor/pad combo front and back. You either end up with not enough stopping power in the front, or more stopping power than traction in the rear.
