Opinion: Calm Reflections of Big-Wheeled Panic
What I'm interested in seeing is if the 29 inch wheels prove to be an advantage for the bigger riders but not for the smaller riders. 29 inch wheels may be faster but not an option for the smaller guys. It would really suck if only the tall riders are able to take advantage of 29 inch bikes but the smaller riders just can't make such a large wheel work for them, and so they're at a disadvantage due to their size. One of the great things about DH is that you height doesn't matter much. Gwin, Sam Hill, Danny Hart and many other great rides are 5'10 or shorter, and then you have minnar, peaty etc who are super tall. There aren't a lot of sports where you can be any height and be great. I would hate downhill to have a big advantage for people who are tall and can therefore use larger wheels. I don't want a bunch of NBA players winning races because they're tall enough to use 34 inch tires etc.

Kona Operator 2017 - First Ride
Sorry, but this first ride/review offers virtually no information on the bike. I know its not an in-depth review, but really, what is even the point of this?

Pinkbike Poll: How Many Suspension Adjustments Do You Actually Need?
@jaame: One thing to keep in mind is that slow speed rebound affects high speed rebound, but high speed rebound does not affect low speed rebound (the same is true on the compression side). Tune low speed rebound first, high speed rebound second. Getting the suspension to balance with the fork is the most important thing. Assuming your fork only has slow speed rebound adjustment, tune the fork rebound to where you like it, then tune the low speed rebound on your shock to match the fork. To tune only the slow speed rebound on the shock, pay attention to how it feel compared to the fork on things like pedaling movement, body weight shifts, and light compressions. Once the slow speed rebound is tuned on the shock, make the high speed rebound on the shock as fast as possible without feeling any kick/bucking on big compressions.

Pinkbike Poll: How Many Suspension Adjustments Do You Actually Need?
Yes because you need to be able to balance the rebound on the front and back of the bike. Without rebound adjustment the chance your dampers would be balanced during rebound is super unlikely.
