Yoann Barelli - The Red Bull Hardline Interview
Flame away but he took a spot of somebody who would have actually raced. I dig Yoann and all but he knew he wasn't prepared to fully commit going in.

A Full-Face Helmet From the Future, Tiny Hope Disc Brakes, and Feathery Pedals - Interbike 2017
Sena clearly doesn't know about goggles and goggle fit/interface. Good luck with that one.

Kali's New LDL-Equipped Helmet for $100, and New Knee and Elbow Pads - Interbike 2017
The minimalist gloves had me at pinky and ring finger knuckle protection (damn cactus) since nobody else seems to have figured out that delicate balance in a light glove. But they ruined them with that stupid silicone branding on the palm. Pro tip to all glove makers: that silicone just makes gloves more slippery as soon as you sweat. It does not enhance grip!!!

MRP's Boost Solution and New Ramp Control Cartridge - Interbike 2017
@ninjatarian: This x1000 When $2,000 wheels become antiquated and non transferable in 1 year, well the industry lost my $3k frame upgrade every 5 years. Now they can go F!ck themselves for their 10mm additional spoke bracing angle that nobody can feel anyway and guys are detensioning their wheels for less rigidty anyway! The industry incrementalized themselves right away from my wallet.

Solving the Dropper Post Dilemma
Folks always make the Minnaar argument and it's flawed: 1) We're not all as skilled as him. I'll take any advantage I can get when the sh!t hits the fan on 35%+ steeps, which leads me to #2 2) The dirty little truth is WC courses are not steep. Most average around 20% gradient. That's not taking anything away from them. Some have gnarly bits and when it's balls out racing everything becomes gnarly but they are not steep compared to a lot of the stuff in BC or Laguna. 20% gradients are pretty damn easy with a half mast seat and indeed you want the seat for control and even some pedaling. However, when it truly gets steep I want the seat as far away from me as possible. I've seen folks size down on frames just so the seat can go lower. If you don't ride 35+% steeps you just don't know what I'm referring to.

Transition's 2018 Lineup - First Look
@ukr77: I have no interest in turning the pedals with the seat dropped. I have interest in getting the seat as far away from my chest and gnads as possible when the trail tilts to -35% or more.

Tahnée Seagrave's New Transition TR11 - Val di Sole World Cup 2017
' In terms of the suspension kinematics, how does it differ from the TR500? It is a very progressive design now. A coil shock works really well on this bike. You don’t need to run an air shock with bands in it to get proper ramping. So was Tahnée on an air-sprung shock on the old bike? Nope, she never tried it. The TR500 was fairly progressive as well, so there was no need to try an air shock on that bike either.' Uhmmmm ???

Transition's 2018 Lineup - First Look
'Aimed at steep technical trails'...but it will accommodate, what...at best a 150 dropper?! Why, why why do companies continue to put a bend/kink/interrupt in the seat tube? So many frames get eliminated for me immediately for this reason. Intense, Ibis, Santa Cruz, Orbea come to mind as the only ones where I can sink a 200 dropper.
