I work at a residential treatment center for middle school kids. I am also a dad and husband and as a result I spend more time thinking about riding than actually doing it.

Salsa Cycles at Frostbike 2018
27lbs for a kid's bike isn't the most competitive weight. Clearly meerkat is 24lbs. The commencal Ramones 24"+ is under lbs. I would think salsa would be more competitive than that.

Wyn Masters' Prototype GT Downhill Bike - First Look
From the article: "... but downhill bikes live in a very different world where traction and suspension action trumps everything else." So gearboxes, right? Why isn't that the case?

@ninjatarian: I feel like wiping it off with a glove isn't a great idea either.

Opinion: Does Downhill Have Nowhere Else to Go?
I'm not a great skier. I learned as a little kid but switched to snowboarding as a teen and then didn't do either for years once I had to buy my own lift passes. Then two days ago I went skiing in great powdery (for the northeast) conditions. My buddy and I took to a forested hillside and even found the summertime single track the bike park uses. It was like hell. I know that better skiers could have had more fun, but Kennedy and Bono hit trees and died on skis and I am not a great skier. Skis can make any open slope feel like a perfectly sculpted trail, and every carve can feel like railing a berm like a pro it is true, but when it comes to chasing single track through the woods and picking lines through rock gardens I'll take wheels. That being said, if someone wants to design a bike specifically for carving down a slope I'll give it a go.

Good Ideas Executed Poorly - Opinion
The M-link on the breezer repack bikes. I rode a 6" travel heavy bike up a hill and beat all my stravas. no pedal bob and great suspension response. But the geo was so bad I went over the bars on the way down twice. The back half of the bike was great, but the front sucked. it was like a 90's front end.

e*thirteen TRS Race SL Carbon Wheels - Review
@drivereight: @drivereight: I know that is what people think. I just don't believe it. Enduro is a market segment. And right now that segment isn't seeing any big leaps forward. AM is a different segment and it is currently making the most progress. When I first came to this site it was all DH and FR, which was where the tech was advancing at the time. other places the tech is advancing right now: gearbox ebike Guess what. Both of these segments are getting a bit more news coverage by the industry journalists. They aren't pawns of the illuminati. The industry pushes the newest stuff and journalists cover the newest (news) stuff. There doesn't have to be some evil sex cult involved. That is just a thing to do while the snow melts. . .

@YouHadMeAtDrugs: seems like an awfully tight bend in a moving place. Just like under the bb it will be beat to hell. There has to be a better route.
