The problem is, with that many laps of one trail the variables are probably infinite.

Well, music went off after about 5 seconds. Then I quit the video too.

First Look: Shimano's New Deore 12-Speed Group & Other 2021 Updates
@cedrico: Is there not some way to remove the races? I could've sworn there was. Pressed in or threaded or something. I would also like to note that cartridge bearings typically are "sealed" and I couldn't see a reason to not have a seal on a cartridge bearing used for such an application - who knows what Shimano has installed (they've always been weird). Be nice to have some clarification on this. As a side note I would definitely consider this for the hardtail when my slx shits the bed. Would probably buy a an HG compatible cassette though.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 5 - Can You Trust Bike Reviews?
@mtb1201: Indeed the rider helps (see Wade Simmons), but the bikes certainly didn't make it easier back then. I can only assume you were there and riding said bikes, otherwise your comment might be viewed as ignorant.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 5 - Can You Trust Bike Reviews?
Came here to say something similar to this. The bikes really are so much better today, by leaps and bounds. I can't imagine taking someone out to the shore on those weird ass bikes we used to ride. My last park bike had a steeper head angle than my current trail bike(s) and approximately 390mm reach. Tall, short and steep. But that's the way it was. It was a great bike at the time but nothing in terms of today's stability/plow factor. Climbing ability in comparison is also light years ahead because of actual engineering. I had no qualms about buying a bike sight unseen online because they really are just that much better now (coming back to in house engineering from people that actually ride/get input from pro's). My suspension bike is a couple seasons old and in spite of it not having 2m of reach it is still the best riding bike I've ever owned. The seat tube is a little longer than I'd like, but whatever. As you mentioned objectivity in reviews of things like bikes is nearly impossible. That is my number one reason for making any bike related purchase solely based on experience and understanding of why things are better the way they are.

Review: Deviate Highlander - There Can Only Be One
What is this bike trying to be? It's a "trail" bike. But it's not? Slack and an idler pulley? Seems like a master of none.
