Video: Mike vs Mike: Geometry Battle - Specialized Stumpjumper vs EVO
@nedersotan: Your example does not actually prove my point as invalid. In fact, it reinforces my point. The Bike Mag Germany's survey was likely a voluntary response survey, I say this because you said it is a reader survey, and that is how reader surveys work. This webpage, https://www.reference.com/world-view/voluntary-response-sampling-daf6a6c947b30a94 explains why surveys like Bike Mag Germany's can only provide unreliable, or biased data. This same problem will apply to data from Strava and Trailforks, since there is likely a statistically significant difference between those who contribute to those apps, and those who don't. So my point stands, people in MTB media and the comments section cannot possibly know what most people want, so they should stop pretending that they do.

I really appreciate that Levy has been so open about how he likes his bikes to ride and feel and that he has incorperated that into his reviews for years. It's great to see Kazimer do the same. It has helped me narrow down the list of possible "next bike" to a manageable number. However, I wish they, (and most others in the MTB media and comments sections) would stop speculating who would like which bike or which bike works best for most people. The opinions of how well a reviewer or owner likes a particular bike or part, and their reasoning for the opinion, is helpful because I can compare the reviewer's preferences and experiences to my own. But speculating in what "most people" would like best isn't helpful since I don't know how my preferences and trails really compare to most people's. And I doubt there are many who know how they really compare to the majority either. If I had followed the speculation of what media guys and comment section warriors had told me was best for most people, I would never have purchased a DH bike because there are no super technical and steep trails here, and even the few trails that have jumps are regularly ridden by guys on "enduro" bikes without problem. But I bought the DH bike, and I have more fun on those trails than I did before when riding them on my enduro because I am more relaxed and my head is in a better place for hitting biggish jumps (the biggest gap is 35 feet, and you can come up short without crashing.) In short, opinions are helpful, but, speculation on others opinions is wasteful.

YT Officially Parts Ways With Aaron Gwin & Neko Mulally
@skerby: On Oct. 26 this year, the following conversation took place on a Gwin Instagram post. clifflane3: Last YT hoorah, stoked to see where the Mob goes! aarongwin1: clifflane3 haha thanks man, the Mob will stay where it’s at though clifflane3: aarongwin1 that’s awesome to hear! Good for you guys! ???????? aarongwin1: clifflane3 haha welll that doesn’t mean I’ll be a part of it, just that it’s staying ???? Regardless, my program next year is gonna be epic. I’m very excited about it. ???????????? clifflane3: aarongwin1 oh man I thought you hand picked the Mob. Well good luck, you’re the man and can’t wait to see where your journey leads you! ???????????????????????? ???????? aarongwin1: clifflane3 ya I did. But things happen I guess, wasn’t my decision. Thanks tho buddy, lookin forward to it for sure. Seems that YT dropped Gwin and Neko. I don't know why, but I have read rumors that YT has been struggling lately with cash flow, so perhaps they wanted to keep both riders but could no longer afford either of them. And with how many comments I consistently read about YT being "out of stock," the rumor about YT's cash flow problems has some meat to it.

Review: Formula Neopos Air Volume Spacers
@santoman: not from what I can see. Though being a janitor has more to do with why I can't try one.

Review: Formula Neopos Air Volume Spacers
@santoman: Actually, AWK converts dual chamber systems into three chamber systems. Both the Fox FLOAT and Rockshox Solo Air springs have two air chambers, one positive (main) chamber and a negative chamber. IRT and AWK split the positive chamber in two, creating a spring with two positive chambers and one negative chamber.

Review: Formula Neopos Air Volume Spacers
@RedRedRe: Your statement is incorrect. Manitou has a three chamber system called IRT available for the Mattoc trail fork, and chickadeehill makes their three chamber AWK spring kit for Rockshox forks down to 120mm of travel and for Fox forks down to 130. Clearly a three chamber air spring system can work for more than just downhill forks.
