Video: Friday Fails #119
@steflund: yup. Happened to me. Put my face into a rock and ended up with emergency plastic surgery. The surgeon said it was as if I'd put a scalpel in my nose and ripped out, but instead I did it with a rock from the other direction. My lips got messed up too. Lucky for me the surgeon was a legend and the scars aren't too bad

Review: RAAW Madonna V2 - Ready for the Apocalypse
@MattInNZ: Knolly and Raaw are both built by Genio. This is part of what convinced me to buy Raaw. I had a Knolly Warden for a while, then went plastic (other brands), and the carbon frames just kept breaking. Plus internal routing is just plain annoying. Part of the reason I sold the Knolly is I thought the linkages were really frustrating to service. Lots of parts, tightly fit bushings. The Raaw appeals because of extra seals for bearings, standard size bearings, and no bushings. And I knew I would be built as well as the Knolly. Anyway, the Madonna is sweet, I love mine

Review: RAAW Madonna V2 - Ready for the Apocalypse
I've been riding the V2 for a couple weeks. I haven't opened it up on 'proper' trails yet but it's been great fun ripping around the woods. It's not the jib machine that my 5010 is, but it carves a corner like no other. Also, Enduro Mag has a round up with other big bikes from January including the V2.

Randoms: Sam Hill Flat Pedals, New Five Ten Shoes, Muc Off Technical Clothing & More - Pond Beaver 2020
Yeah, I'm eyeing them for bikepacking. I switch back and forth between clips and flats throughout the year, but flats are nice for bikepacking as the shoes tend to be more comfortable and versatile off the bike. I did the CT last summer and had my crank break 40 miles out from Durango, so I decided to finish out the trip on a push bike. The freerider pros were not my favorite shoe to hike 20-30 miles in.

6 New Knee Pads - Pond Beaver 2020
@Lastpikd: Indeed. I have the 7IDP Sam Hill which has a similar backing and after a few snags from pedals pins they have multiple holes and tears. I have been told it looks like purposefully torn lingerie

First Look: Pipedream Cycles Adds a Bit of Bounce to the Moxie - Pond Beaver 2020
It just means the reach numbers aren't as long as you might think. As you add stem spacers, you effectively increase stack and decrease reach. Do the trig to normalize the stack the across bikes. You also have to remember that's all static geo. A long travel fork will ride further into its travel than a short travel fork (25% of 180mm vs 25% of 140mm for example) so you'll expect to see more stack in long travel bikes to get similar dynamic ride position. But I agree, the longer version in particular is going to require a ton of stem spacers to feel comfortable for most people who want that long of a bike

First Ride: Fox's New 38 Fork - Pond Beaver 2020
I took mine for a first ride yesterday ????. Mellow trails so it felt like riding around in 1st and 2nd gear knowing there is a lot more speed on tap. It's not the jib machine that my 5010 is, but still plenty maneuverable, just takes more effort to chuck about. And hot damn it can carve a corner. Bb is quite low, but I never actually had a pedal strike. 5'8 on a Medium and the sizing feels spot on
