@Gideonbez: i agree with u but my fat fingers accidentally down voted instead of upvoted...sorry. I have the same situation as you and also prefer sram...absolutley no issues with my sram setups and no constant adjustments needed at all. My shimano equipped bike is fine but i prefer the shifting of the sram models.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 8 - Do We Need an Even Larger Wheel Size?
Oh for f#$ks sake not again....here we go another million new standards. How is we can put men on the moon but cant figure out which fu$#ing wheel size is best without going through a million different versions first. Please dont even start this bull$hit. We have mullet bikes cos some people cant fit 2 29 inch wheels as it is. Que the hundreds of posts from people who are 6ft 2 and think there giants and need bigger wheels????

not trying to start a wheel debate war but if he used an older commencal like the meta hip hop on 26inch wheels it would have been much easier to hop up. These 29er bikes look a bit too big. granted they roll over stuff better but if its as technical as this and you have to hop up that would be my call. That said massive respect for even trying this and he got over bits i was like....that aint happening...lol well done.

Review: TRP's New TR12 Shifter and Derailleur
i have used both shimano 12 speed and sram 12 speed and like both for different reasons. I like the reverse direction on the shift lever on shimano shifters and prefer the more positive shifting feel of the sram stuff. There are a couple of things i do really find useful for me with the sram stuff though and they are the ability to lock the rear mech straight really makes it easier to remove and refit the rear wheel and work on the chain etc and the larger rear mech pulleys which make it much easier to get a brush on them to clean when cleaning my drivetrain.

Video: A Trail Dog's Perspective on Covid-19
love dogs but on my local trails there not allowed but theres a worrying trend starting with people riding ithe trails with them anyway and as it gets quite busy i have had several near misses with dogs just running out in front of me when owners haven't been in control of them and have stopped in really stupid places. I know its not the dogs fault just the dumb owners disobeying the rules. I think if you ride on quieter trails then sure its probably a lot safer but where i live its a real hazard.....that and the dog shite on the trails to...

First Ride: Privateer 161 - An Affordable-ish Race Ready Machine
@roma258: totally agree with you.....been saying the same thing for a while now. I love my trail/all mountain bike with 140mm travel each end but in some places it feels a bit too long on some sharp turns and its not anywhere near as slack or long as these. Sometimes my much shorter and steeper xc bike is quicker on the same trails that i dont expect it to be just because its so light and agile i can control it much quicker and hop over things easier. heck im quicker than a lot of people on one of the rougher tracks in my local area on my carbon xc hardtail than many others using full suspension trail and enduro bikes. have slogged around on a commencal supreme fr with 180mm travel and although it was awesome on descents when riding black trails in north wales i was always so bloody tired that in the end i sold it and just used my 120 travel commencal meta sl1 as once i got to the top of climbs i was so much fresher that i could overcome the massive difference in travel and lack of slackness of the little bike with ease and the little bike was sooo much quicker even on the descents because of this.

@marge88: how about a lighter weight bike since Kazimer mentioned its quite a hefty bike that does slow it up a bit in some situations. the spec is very good but its just a bit too hefty but thats just me and i am sure plenty of others would prioritize the good spec for the money and care a lot less for the weight.
