Brilliant or Bullshit? – Pinkbike Poll
I'm surprised they didn't include this. It was the most significant change in my opinion. Not wheelsize though. People probably wouldn't notice the difference bewetween a 650b and a 26-bike with modern geometry. Pinkbike-writers are you even trying? Under which rock did you live over the last years?

Pinkbike Poll: If Racing Does Improve the Breed, Will You Trade up to 29-inch Wheels?
@bmck: my argument still stands: if its possible that a rider can outrun the field by nearly ten seconds we are not talking about technology being the main factor in winning a dh-race. The margin might get smaller but dh is still mainly a head-game ;)

Final Results - Lourdes DH World Cup 2017
@oldschool43: Back in the freecaster days streaming hardware most probably was more expensive, harder to operate etc. So the job they did back then was at least on par with what red bull offers today. Actually my most exciting races I experienced in the freecaster days. The build up of tension was just better with the amping up of the pace. Kinda like watching a formula one race. As far as I can remember they didn't have those catashtrophic blackouts right from the start it was more like it broke down when more people joined but after a few minutes it worked again.

Final Results - Lourdes DH World Cup 2017
@sicmoto: Freecaster wasn't that bad. Rob was way better and the broadcast was longer. They had a few issues but red bull has too. The production company is actually the same but red bull should have a bigger budget for streaming hardware...

Qualifying Results - Lourdes DH World Cup 2017
With all the hype people are forgetting that with the team changes the syndicate became a much faster team probably because of the new riders. No disrespect to Peaty or Ratboy but the didn't have their old form in the last season(s). Wereas Shaw and Vergier were constantly in the top10 and did pull of this results in qualy before...

Pinkbike Poll: If Racing Does Improve the Breed, Will You Trade up to 29-inch Wheels?
@fartymarty: the main difference is: If a good racecar-driver has a bad car he has no chance of whinning while in dh Aaron Gwin in top form could still win a dh race on an inferior/outdated bike or even without a chain :)

How are we even supposed to know if it's an advantage? People are so obsessed with parts and wheelsizes that they are forgetting about the most imporant factor: the rider.

Shall We Talk About Riding Your Bike? - Sea Otter 2017
@Boardlife69: I'm sick of all those product features. I mean everybody who is into mountain biking and not a tiny bit gear queer is either a lier or a weirdo but enough is enough. I can't stand the constand rave and rage around new standards and parts anymore...
