Opinion: Why Is Everyone Talking About Seat Tube Angles?
Yes, this...I finally had this revelation last year. I guess the steep effective seat tube angle mantra found me. I have a 35" inseam, so with my saddle at the correct height my back end is way over the rear wheel with a slackish seat angle. I now have a bike with a 76 degree seat angle and the bike climbs like incredibly. The other thing is now I can climb steep ledgy sections that I've not been able to clean before. Another thing about my new bike is the front end is light and poppy with short chain stays, but the front end still tracks the ground on steep climbs. I understand that this all weight distribution, but its interesting that its taken years to get mountain bike geometry to where it needed to be.

Tech Randoms: Maribor World Cup DH 2019
Any know the brand on the t-handle wrenches Gwin's mechanic is using? I think I sold my t-handles in a garage sale next week. I'll need a new set.

4 New Materials That Could Improve Carbon Fiber
PB didn’t mention these people. I wondering if this is where Guerrilla Gravity is getting their tech. Hmmm...

Nicolai Releases New Saturn 14 Trail Bike
I don't care how much carbon I look at when I see a beautifully welded raw aluminum frame I just want to take a bite out of it.

Photo Story: Mountain Biking in Chernobyl
@j0nes: So roughly 1 millionth of a Sievert, a tiny dose. What I would be worried about is inhaling any of the dust from the area - toxic. Its one thing to be exposed to ionizing radiation, but it is the ingestion of particles that you carry away from the source that is the killer.

Video: Rebound Puzzles with Loris Vergier & Jordi of Fox Suspension
@friendlyfoe: Bingo...I was thinking along the lines of F1 drivers, or any other really high end division motor sports. The drivers who have no idea what their cars are doing and cannot communicate that to their teams don't last long. I was wondering if there was a lost in translation thing going on, but I'm not so sure. At some point Loris should have recognized he was flailing and differed to the tech. And I'm also surprised there was no telemetry being used. I thought they had that now? That would show when Loris was bottoming. True what someone else said. Most people have not idea what is happening with suspension because they are just riding the bike but not really paying attention to how the bike is riding, or trying to translate how the bike is riding into how they are riding. It's something that you have to think about and learn. Most don't. Most can barely change a pedal out let alone tune anything. I am talking about people who are otherwise decent cyclists. I'm not sure if this is only my own opinion, but I think there is this notion held by some that bicycles are toys and that they can be thrashed without care and trashed. Basically asking the bike to do too much without checking it over. Suspension bikes have this additional dimension that is beyond consideration for most riders. They stand there looking at the bike and these suspension components look static, the whole bike is static, and that is the way it exists in their mind. You get off the bike after you ride it and look at it and it is still static. The paradox is the static bike is abstract. You have to look at the bike as if it were in motion. Then you can understand what to pay attention to and how to pay attention to it.

Video: Incredible Triple Nose Bonk Save from the Windrock Pro GRT
It would be great if pink bike could get the original bit of video so that I can watch the clip over and over again with dealing with instagram. Or adjust the setting so there is not the forced shunt onto their platform.
