First Ride: 2021 Rocky Mountain Altitude - More Travel, More Options
"Rocky has long been a proponent of adjustable geometry, and I don't think it's just because 'Ride 9' is a catchy term. However, I'm not sure why they didn't make it so the Altitude's slackest position was extra slack. Remember, this is a 160 /170mm bike – I'd hope that most riders considering a bike like this are planning on taking it into steep, technical terrain, areas where a slack head tube angle has very few downsides. Personally, if I'm on a bike with adjustable geometry I'd rather have the ability to make it too slack versus too steep. I have a hard time imagining many riders will ever run this bike in the steep position, which gives it a 65.5-degree head angle – why not shift everything over so that there's the option of giving the Altitude a DH-bike worthy head angle?" Hmm, what bike that was recently reviewed does this sound like?

Bike Check: Flowrider Racing's Shaun Palmer Inspired Revel Rascal LT
This looks like the interior of a 1970s McDonalds, so it's perfectly fitting with the current colorways.

Review: Liteville 301 MK15 Enduro
I'm sure this sentiment: "What happens when the mountain bike industry runs out of fireworks? Liteville’s 301 MK 15 Enduro may answer that question. As the smoke clears from two decades of tumultuous innovation and contentious new standards, it becomes apparent that most of us are over it. Pick a bike, any bike, single-pivot, six-bar, faux-bar – they all pedal well, weigh about 30 pounds and descend wonderfully. Components have attained similar parity, and if there were a super geek waiting in the wings with a stupendous suspension patent or a truly revolutionary drivetrain, we would have heard about it by now." ... will hold up to the test of time as well as this thesis: "The End of History and the Last Man (1992) is a book of political philosophy by American political scientist Francis Fukuyama which argues that with the ascendancy of Western liberal democracy—which occurred after the Cold War (1945–1991) and the dissolution of the Soviet Union (1991)—humanity has reached "not just ... the passing of a particular period of post-war history, but the end of history as such: That is, the end-point of mankind's ideological evolution and the universalization of Western liberal democracy as the final form of human government.""

It's two forty-five at 300 watts, not a cyclocross race.

@dirt-roadie: I mean, maybe less zwift but to me it sounds like you just need to practice descending more.
