Field Test: 2021 Specialized Epic EVO S-Works - The Most Versatile
@speed10: Ritchey, Guy, Cunningham (and others) were the innovators. Fisher, Sinyard were the businessmen. Sinyard is, by all personal accounts, a hyper-competitive tool. Employee turnover at the big S is unreal, and being a S dealer carries an exclusivity penalty. They make some cool stuff, but I will never own any of it. Also, don't forget the Volagi bikes lawsuit. But here's a rundown on some of the rest: http://drunkcyclist.com/2014/03/12/now-know/

Bike Check: Comparing Trek Factory Racing's Supercaliber Setups
@eugenux: Hey man, I tend to size up too. I believe in the gods of reach and wheelbase. But you spend that much time on a bike, you learn what you like. Ask anyone who rode Ricky Carmichael's moto...

Bike Check: Comparing Trek Factory Racing's Supercaliber Setups
These folks spend 15-20 hours a week on their bikes. My guess is that they have a better idea what works than we do. Also. Smaller frame = lower bar height = better power = less wind resistance = more front end grip.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 10 - Getting Nerdy About Bike Setup
Was it Levy blowing out of Shimano pedals?? Me too. Cured pedal rebuilding and blowout woes by going back to Time. Riding the aluminum Speciales for two years. Absolutely love them. Good for the knees too-the brass cleat wears into your natural foot position.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 9 - Why Are We Doing a Cross-Country Field Test?
There are good reasons why cycling clothing has evolved over the last 100 years to bibs and jerseys with pockets in the back. Function over form, I don't think anyone wears that stuff to look good. Though I do remember standing next to Susan Demattai in a skinsuit once. I would not mind doing that again. Baggies are about style and vanity....but I still wear them when I'm hitting the brewery after the ride. Like I said. Vanity. But seriously, what's with all the jerseys with no or unuseable pockets?

Review: HED's Raptor 29 XC Carbon Wheelset
I'm I own 2 similar LB/DT Swiss wheelsets. Set 1, Light Bicycle DT 240. 1450 g. Built in 2010 or 11, Ridden hard til 2 years ago, when the alloy nipples started to fail. Relaced and repurposed on the gravel bike. Never touched outside of relacing. Set 2: Also LB, Slightly burlier, DT 350 hubs. 1520ish g. 5th season and on their second "downcountry" bike. I ride the hell out of these things. Untouched. Personally, I'm a fan.

NS Bikes Launch Carbon 'Synonym' Range of Downcountry and Trail Bikes
@JohanG: Took me a bit to get used cornering the Smuggler with a 66 head angle. At least on more XC-ish trails. Kept pushing the front end. Trick for me, same trick as on my old 111, was to dump the overly short stem-went from 35 to 50. It seems like such a small change, but that little shift made all the difference in the world on both bikes. Now I feel like 66 is my sweet spot.
