Commencal Announces Meta AM 29 'Signature Brushed' Edition with Thomas Estaque Video
If the Meta's get a update to the abp/spli-pivot/axel pivot type suspension design that the Clash has in the next year or two will be pretty hard to pass with their excellent and well priced build kits with aluminum frames

RAW Video: Race Day at EWS Rotorua
At 1:37 on this spot notice that the rider on the Pole is the only one who takes the outside line. While this could be poor line choice I suspect the extreme wheelbase is cause here.....

SRAM Announces New G2 Four Piston Brakes
@mnorris122: Ha, I know exactly what you mean and that is probably my biggest complaint with my guides (interpret overall I have been happy with my sets especially compared to my XTs)

Video: Vorsprung on Understanding Advanced Bike Geometry - Part 2
Key lesson from this video is that RC:FC ratio is important and thus generalizations about bikes (including bike reviews) really need to take into account the size of the bike. A medium with "short chainstays" (425-43cmm) may very well have that ideal RC:FC ratio whereas the same bike in XS or an XL may have a non-ideal ratio and will behave substantially different. I think this is a prime example why the "superenduro" bikes like the firebird and the spartan were reviewed negatively due to their short chainstays (with 6'+ riders) whereas the length of those chainstays may be perfect for a person who rides a medium where the RC:FC ratios are better.

Video: Josh Bryceland's First Ride on a Cannondale Habit
@Jonsey360: @Jonsey360: yeah Cannondale's method of "green" manufacturing is using less carbon in their layups to save the environment (especially in the seatstays). This results extremely high failure rates and then the real key to reducing their carbon footprint is refusing any and all warranty claims. This enables them to make fewer overall bikes. All of those riders with broken bikes wont be driving their SUVs to the trailhead so often so that is another bonus. The final bonus is that since the average rider is out 6000k for a totaled bike they will be working their ass off (contributing to economic growth) so that they may one day be able to buy another bike....

Tech Talks: Dropper Seat Posts - To Clamp Or Not To Clamp?
I have a nice bontrager bike stand that has a saddle nose hook on the top by the clamp. So this enables me to hang the bike by the nose of the saddle and while the bike may sway I find this is acceptable for 95% of my wrenching. I did one time clamp my fox transfer post and a bolt for the clamps had slightly come loose and it scratched the shit out of my stanchion. That was my fault for not checking but I wont be clamping ever again.
