Winning Bike Check: Richie Rude's Yeti SB5.5 - EWS Olargues, France 2018
>look at the head tube shot to know the frame was a turq and not a standard c. I wonder if that's an out of the box frame though. Knowing Rude was going to be slamming that on EWS and only 140mm if I was Yeti I'd want to wrap a few extra layers on there. Maybe that would be too difficult but it doesn't seem like it would be much of a problem to specify a batch with a stronger layup. These frames are on the lighter side of Enduro bikes as it is.

What's custom about the headset ? Is it just special or is it adjusting the reach/angle ? I'm kind of thinking the details are what we want in a bike check.

What Are Your MTB Pet Peeves? - Opinion
My peeve isn't really justifiable I guess that's what makes it a peeve - but the scene here has never been stronger, tons of people riding, but 95% of them never seem to make it beyond the same set of "trail centers" or a few bootleg trail sites. We have all sorts of back country epic riding within 2 hours and its like pulling teeth to get people out on an adventure. I realize not everyone is fit or has time but I've seen the strava accounts of some very fast racers/riders who are constantly out riding but never seem to leave the County.

Archer Components' Wireless Electronic D1x Shifter - Review
The difference between e-shifters and e-bikes and dropper post, suspension forks etc. is external power source. Once you add an external power source to your efforts you've disrupted the purity of the bike. I'm not demanding you agree with me but that's how I feel about it. That's why I hate ebikes so much I guess - not because of the threat to my non-existent strava times or that they're going to shred the trail but because once you muddy the line between muscle power and motors there will be no turning back (well also user conflict, land access etc). Now if you hook up a dynamo hub to power your electronic shifting then I'm perfectly happy with it !

PUSH ACS-3 Coil Spring black, Pike 160mm

$40 USD
Black (for heavier riders) coil spring for ACS-3 coil system. Was fitted to a 160mm 29" Pike, although I'm pretty sure the spring is universal between forks but the length will differ between travel ranges. Check with Push if you are concerned. Ridden once. Half price of a new one, but shipping will ad $15-20. It cost me almost $100 by the time I had one shipped from Push, so its not a ton but still money in your pocket.
