13 Bikes That Could See An Update In 2023
The one Cecile Ravanel has looks like a very rough, very early prototype. I wouldn't expect any details too soon. It is aluminum!

The Latest Tech From the Mont Sainte Anne DH World Cup - Does Weight Matter?
@chrismac70: Of course, those priorities would be re-organized if you are participating in a different discipline. You are describing a regular trail ride. In this situation, you can prioritize weight over durability/adaptability because you beat up your stuff less and frequent similar trails with similar conditions

The Latest Tech From the Mont Sainte Anne DH World Cup - Does Weight Matter?
@chrismac70: I wouldn't describe DH as a "human-powered sport", as I mentioned before I'd say that gravity is what primarily powers a DH bike, the rider controls that power. As far as priorities go on a DH bike: #1 is kinematics/geo (frame design/cockpit), #2 is traction (provided by tires+suspension+brakes), #3 is adaptability (tuning/servicing), #4 is durability (DNF to mechanical can ruin a season), and then #5 is weight. The winningest bikes of the last few seasons have been quite heavy (looking at you Commencal Supreme) because they frequently sacrifice weight for the other 4 priorities. This is best embodied by how every WC rider chooses to run the heaviest casing DH tires despite only needing them for a single run- they would rather sacrifice that performance weight advantage for simple reliability.

US customs and immigration are a pain. My US passport had, unbeknownst to me, expired in only 5 years right before I left for Europe for a Summer gig. Luckily, I had a spare UK passport but in doing some research since I left found out that US immigration will not let me back into America without my US passport, despite the fact that my UK is perfectly valid and that it lists my birthplace in America.

@justanotherusername: Lighten up some jeez. I'm just sayin' it getting uglier alongside apparently becoming more "refined" was ironic, and made me laugh.

USA Names 45 Rider Squad for Les Gets World Champs
@mi-bike: Thanks for that, Ferro seems to have a lot of neat interests between racing helicopters (on a bike through NYC), journalism, and "digital forensics" (-her twitter). It's funny how this very new discipline in our sport has quite a few outsiders (at least to the "scene") competing now at the highest level
