Overall Standings: Fort William World Cup DH 2019
+1. Pinkbike obviously people hate scribd. Can you please consider spending a few minutes just min. writing out the top 10 or 20 riders for each category and putting that directly in the article? I imagine it would take one person 5 minutes and would go a long way with your tens of thousands of readers. There are only 15-16 WC races a year across both disciplines. Thank you.

Race Face Announces New Next SL Crankset
@dave-f: Agree it's probably applicable to carbon cranks generally, not RF specifically. Agree they must sell for these companies to keep putting them out. They are noticeably lighter, and I'm sure OEM on a lot of higher-end bikes so it's not even an individual choice in many cases. I think PBers who ride a lot think they are in the norm because they are on PB a lot reading comments from other people that ride (or type about riding) a lot. But in reality I bet most consumers who buy these just don't ride a ton and/or push them much and may ride in flatter areas, but have some dough or aspirations that go unrealized.That's probably a lucrative formula for companies selling expensive, but fragile carbon vs. alum cranks. It does make you wonder why Shimano hasn't jumped on the $ train here. But optimistically maybe the "new layup process" does prevent inserts from breaking off. It'll probably be difficult to tell with no data transparency, and even long-term reviews being with one person who gave the Next SL v1 a great review: https://www.pinkbike.com/news/Race-Face-Next-SL-Cranks-Review-2013.html ...and another who gave the Reverb a great review: "Still, the Reverb's reliability and install-and-forget nature make it our first choice when riders ask us which dropper post they should consider." https://www.pinkbike.com/news/rockshox-reverb-review-2011.html

Race Face Announces New Next SL Crankset
Plenty of comments on PB about SixCs failing as well. Agree the majority won’t fail otherwise they wouldn’t make money on these, but we’ll never know the actual numbers. It’s likely the majority of people riding bikes don’t ride them very often or hard (hard core PB audience excluded), but they buy nice stuff anyway. Majority prob also don’t ride in harder core areas like the PNW. It’s then also possible a lot that fail just never get warrantied.

Race Face Announces New Next SL Crankset
@clink83: Sorry dude did you have something intelligent to say? You’re the same guy above putting SixC cranks on an XC bike hoping for the best, saying stupid shit like “crack arm boots ftw” as if you have any clue about the actual efficacy of crank boots. Keep typing buddy!

Race Face Announces New Next SL Crankset
@raceface: "we are not interested in fluffing things up" Ok, what about saying "Proven crank arm shape and pedal insert for strong dependable performance"? It's obvious you have a lot of people saying both your Next SL and DH-rated SixC cranks have failed. Saying they are "dependable" sounds like BS/fluff to me given all of the experiences shared here. Also there's no actual data included in your press release. "improvements in its carbon layup and manufacturing process that delivers an increase in crankarm stiffness for precise power transfer". That's pretty vague. You could probably get away with saying that, yet changing nothing on the cranks. No numbers, no data, no "we finally fixed them insert issues on the pedal and BB side and here are tests to prove those are more reliable". Just sort of vague hand-wavey stuff.
