Behind the Numbers: 5 Trail Bikes Compared
I love these articles , and the data. I think the next step is to make/explain it more consumable for the potential users if the intended bikes and where there ridden. Of course this involves qualitative input as well. Not perfect analysis, but it would be cool to have a few trails/lines utilized to see suspension in action. Standardize as much as you can. E.g. Same rider, same day, same trail/segment/line, same scenario used, (tires, air pressure, pedal strokes, riding position, course..etc) with recommended bike setup. GoPro cameras on the details of the bike, tires to ground , and overlay data as well as bike progresses down trail. I’d totally continue to read/analyze during work hours, fantasizing how I would conduct such a test. ( ok, add same number of pops consumed for each test pilot !! ). Love this stuff. I’m getting old.

Interview: Why Yoann Barelli Is Stepping Away From Racing
weblink please. I am in. This is exactly what interest me now. After 20+ years in the sport, racing, riding, and now watching my kids start to ride. I would love to re-ignite the passion and invest in myself as a rider. I can't think of anybody (skills, personality, attitude, life stoke) better to learn from. Really exciting Yoann !! Also be great to look forward to something in September/October and a cross Canada road trip !

Revonte's ONE E-Bike Drive System Has an Automatic Transmission Mode
Wait - if I add pedals to a ktm electric Dirt bike can I ride on mountain bike trails ? And roost my ebike friends after giving them the low wave ? Kidding. Ebikes are super fun, I test them when there was bike shows and intent to get one in the future. ( 4-5 years when things slow down and I need to keep up to kids ). We will reach a point , likely pretty soon where weight, battery, motor/ brushless technology negate the need to pedal as input that much. As power increases tires / components will follow and then at what point is it An electric dirt bike with pedals , instead of a mountain bike with assistance. Maybe it’s when we see them doing things nit possible on non e mountain bikes ? Pivot riders excluded ...

fantastic way to ride safely in the covid era. the dainese full body protective suit not only provides great crash protection but also allows you to exceed people's expectations and blow minds as you blow up berms, gaps, trees ... you name. You go on Ray, you go on... lol banger edit though .

Video: Jordi Explains the Purpose of Valves in a Shock in the Latest 'Dialed' Episode
That was a solid video. I think it is a great kickoff to get a bit more technical now that you covered the basics. A few things come to mind. 1. Showing:explaining how adjustments a rider makes externally impact the oil flow (compression/rebound). Especially the relationship between adjustments, how one affects the other(s) and why ( show the internals exactly the way Jordi did ). 2. I’d love to see examples from too dh racers from previous years to help relate the application of base settings, dyno and then real world qualitative testing and then full circle. ( dyno ). 3. Future around emerging technologies... ( or old ) like dynamic / speed sensitive valving / active suspension and even futures where data can be utilized in near real time. E.g. geo specific, temperature, pressure, speed, torq etc. I can’t get enough of this !!
