Trek Session 29 vs 27.5 – First Ride
Also, does one ride faster when they believe they're on a faster bike? i.e. could it be placebo rather than wheelsize that makes the difference? Impossible to know without a waaaaay larger sample size in a blind test. Blind mountain bike testing...sounds exciting.

Honest question: are there any downsides to using more than "a light smear of grease" in moving parts? At least in pedals, I like to get enough grease in there that it's basically under positive pressure. But pedals are uniquely exposed to contamination, and I have a bad habit of exploding pedals...so maybe I'm doing it wrong.

Does Boost Spacing Really Make a Stronger Wheel?
To everything talked about in this article: duh. That was always the real kick in the balls about Boost. The idea is solid and they've widened the rear hub as much as they could without going to a wider crank (for 2x). But, the widening of the front was arbitrary. Figure out the optimal spoke bracing angle, then figure out the width of the hub needed to make that symmetrical. It's not that hard. Now we've all got forks with a new arbitrarily wider hub. Couldn't we have just done this once and for all?

Marin Wolf Ridge: First Ride
Great to see a company thinking about biometric sizing and trying to pinpoint the actual relevant factors to sizing. Unfortunately, it looks as though they've continued to make the false assumption that one wants their knee over the pedal spindle when then crank is at 3 o'clock, when really you want to start dropping power with the knee over the spindle when the pedal is at 1:30. And, still need on a cleat position that looks too far forward to my eye.

Summer is Overrated - Opinion
This article is brought to you buy the suspension and drivetrain cartels. They want you to go out riding in the wet grit, and buy more chains, cassettes and seals. It's a conspiracy! I kid. Beautiful words @vernonfelton, as usual.
