Video: Full Send on an XC Bike
Kudos Jason. Fact is that most mtb consumers probably buy far too much bike/too much travel for what they're going to do. Also, I hear far too many people say "an xc bike can't do that" and or "a dropper post is required to ride this" and its mostly bs. Good riders can make XC bikes do a lot of things. But I gotta disagree about fork travel vs post travel: I have a procaliber with rigid fork and a dropper, and routinely hit drops and jumps on it. IT IS A BLAST! When you have ZERO suspension, you need to use your legs hips MORE to serve as suspension... and that's what a dropper enables me to do.

Geoff Kabush's Race Diary from Bentonville Off-Road
Cheers to Geoff! In a niche sport that is increasingly defined by more segmented niches, I appreciate a dude who trains to maintain a high w/kg cardio output for hours on end AND knows how to throw down at an enduro, all the while not taking it all too seriously and having a good time. This is what mountain biking means to me, and inspires me. Bike handling, shredding gnar, and fitness for miles & smiles. Also aerobars on gravel bikes in mass start races is super dumb 100%.

Geoff Kabush's Race Diary from Bentonville Off-Road
@gkabush: You make sound, responsible tire choices. Lots of yahoos on this site never raced 50mi on mtb's before; I sure don't want to pedal 50mi on DD minions. For a bunch of sub 80kg pros to be flatting 650-700g tires is very unusual. The masters women's race was also a sh*tshow of flat tires; top 5 women all separated by 16mins, with the lead bouncing back and forth among whoever was experiencing the fewest technical difficulties: http://www.dirtgirldiary.com/2018/10/2018-oz-trails-off-road-race-report-or.html

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
Truth is that bikes depreciate faster than cars, faster than high end smartphones, etc. If you want your bike to look pristine, wrap it. If you're trying to protect resale value... weak argument. If someone is shopping for a used bike, a wrapped frame might encourage the purchase of your bike over a similar non-wrapped option, but its not like its protecting the value of the finish/bike.

Trek Stache 19.5", custom wheels built to your spec

$1700 USD
Let me complete this build for you with custom wheels per your requirements, you choose fork (Pike for 2.2-2.5 tires or rigid for 3" tires) & rim width. You could be riding this stache for $1700 + shipping. It saddens me to sell my Stache, I fell in love custom building this bike two years ago, but just don't ride it enough. I have a procal & remedy that get the bulk of my dirt time, so scoop up a great deal on this custom stache! I can build wheels for you, or you may be able to talk me into selling some (carbon!) wheels I have. Stache alloy frame, size 19.5" (virtual, 18.5" actual) I am 5'11" with long inseam and this bike fits great. Anyone 5'9" up to maybe 6'2" could find themselves comfy on this. Wheels Manufacturing alloy BB w/ angular contact bearings for gxp cranks, spins smooth & quiet!! Sram xx1 shifter, x01 11sp rear der (cosmetic scratches, perfect fx) Sram xo carbon cranks, with xx1 76bcd spider/ring race face 60mm stem bontrager rxl carbon bars, 720mm wide SLX brakes ready for 180mm rotors front/rear (just remove adapters if you prefer 160mm) Pike rct3, 100x15mm, set for 130mm of travel, new seals and oil in winter 2017- scratch on stanchion but doesn't effect performance, some paint rubbed off crown from being on a north shore rack (fork was on a different bike back then). KS Lev dropper post with 125mm drop, WTB volt butt perch. You want it with a rigid carbon Bontrager Bowie fork? I can swap that in. $1200 for all above (without wheels), or options below. You want me to build you some custom wheels for this bike, at a great price? Let's talk. You want a hope rear hub laced to a 23mm internal carbon rim for this bike? PM me. Options: You want just the frame & seatpost? $500. Frame, post, & (either) fork? $750. FYI I can build you custom wheels for approx $300, add cassette, rotors & chain $100 and get you rolling on this bike for $1600 plus shipping. To clarify: if you go with Pike fork, max tire size will be about a 29x 2.6", if you go rigid fork you could go 29x 3.0" tires or a bit more. Personally I think a 2.4" tire on a wide rim is the sweet spot!!

Recon Gen-2 R5 Shuttle Rack – Review
Racks like this seem to cause handlebars/shifter/brake levers to rub the adjacent bike top tubes. Happens on my North shore 6 bike rack all the time-- I end up loosening stems and turning bars. Anyone seen a better solution???
