More Tech Randoms - Fort William World Cup 2024
Evil denied the issue for a long time, refused warranties, left people out to dry, etc.. Commencal warranties pretty quickly with little to no questions asked.

Video: Friday Fails #300
@suspended-flesh: If only our county were taught applied mathmatics more comprehensively. The math doesn't lie. The US on a per capita basis pay 2.5x more money for healthcare than any other country in the world (#1 country ranked for healthcare quality is France they pay the second most, 40% of what we pay, ouch). Our health outcomes (an imperfect measure of overall health and how well healthcare works) aren't even in the top 30 of all countries. We are right next to Cuba, a country we have embargoed medical technology against for 50+ years. In the US you pay for healthcare directly (deductibles), and indirectly via taxes (billions go to healthcare systems and insurance companies every year), and via your employer who pays 10's of thousands a year per employee and also has to hire/dedicate HR staff to negotiate and get plans and coverage every year with insurers. If you put all of the direct and indirect costs together, the US health system is objectively the worst on the planet for a high income country for our entire population. However, much like most things in the US, at the individual level you can pay your way to better specialty care if you have enough money.

Tech Tuesday - Troubleshooting Common Shifting Problems
Henry notes the binding/reduced spring tension to drop down the cassette. This has been a prevalent issue for me with Shimano 12spd mechs (SLX and XT) and is most apparent when the clutch is engaged. The result is that my shimano 12pd mechs have a significantly shorter lifespan than my eagle mechs. Rebuilding the clutch and cleaning and greasing the entire mech helps a bit but when the chain has trouble dropping from the 51t cog the derailleur is likely on its last leg. Replacing cable, housing, chain, hanger, etc wont have much of an impact here.

Tech Tuesday - Troubleshooting Common Shifting Problems
@minimusprime: Even set up perfectly Eagle will ride up on the Narrow-wide teeth on the SRAM cassettes from time to time. Your advice is on par with the people who just tell people with Shimano wandering bite point to bleed their brakes.

Video: Brendan Fairclough's 4th Place Rampage POV
Always, my favorite rider at Rampage, I cant say this was the best run (honestly his 2019 run was the spirit of rampage to me). As others have pointed out though, the fact that this is a build and ride scenario where Brendog and his team had to build an entire new line by themselves vs. the good ole boys situation where Zink and Strait had 2 build teams 2 years in a row, riding off the same/similar (don't be semantic) drop that Zink won on 10 years ago does make the situation a bit unfair. I do think Zink's run was awesome (steep techy drops up top and the huge backflip) but not sure how it was scored so much higher than everyone else's (also Semenuk's caveman last year and overall run were far more impressive to me than TVS's and he got 2nd this year over this run?!?)

[UPDATED] Final Results & Overall Standings from the Loudenvielle EDR World Cup 2023
While the folks with media rights have certainly been letting coverage down, it also feels like Pinkbike has been putting in considerably less effort over and above resulting in enduro feeling almost nonexistent (literally miss one or two articles and you miss it all)

Review: Rad Racks Rad4 Double-Folding Bike Rack
Look into the Lolo maybe? They have multiple positions for the standard rack to allow it to tilt and still open the tailgate (even goes low enough to swing out my ridgeline tailgate horizontally if I choose) They also have the swingout adapter, and compared to most other upright racks the ground clearance is usually 6+ inches higher and closer to the frame (definitely vs. any of the racks like velocirax that carry by the wheels)

First Ride: Ibis HD6 - Mixed Wheels & More Travel
I would prefer a float x (eg fox super deluxe) over the X2 and NX should never be specced on any bike costing above 4K in my opinion.

The Pinkbike Podcast: A Deep Dive on Pivot's Wild Prototype DH Bike with Bernard Kerr
This bike looks cool and the process with the in house construction seems really interesting. However, with Pivot and the rest of the Dave-Weagle super-boost junta (Pivot, Evil, Devinci) all producing their carbon frames in Myanmar (pivot and evil are 100% carbon) hard to really get excited about these companies "innovations"
