Slack Randoms: The New Tony Ellsworth Bike is Very Different
12:56 on the Red Bull Bereman vid is worth watching, gotta be a contender for biggest case in history, and just rides it out. Give his suspension guys a raise

First Look: Specialized's New Carbon Stumpjumper Ditches the Horst Link
I hear ya and you're not wrong but I think that sentence is probably talking more about optimizing the fiber layups. If a normal carbon tube is, say, 8 layers thick everywhere, with some in-depth simulations and engineering they can instead determine it's lighter or stiffer to have 9 layers where the bulk of the load path actually is supported, and 5 layers everywhere else (ie: took out 3 layers worth of grams without compromising strength).

YT Capra CF Pro XXL

$4900 CAD
Bike has had an easy life on the local blue cross-country trails. Great shape (read below). It has been awesome to me, really versatile especially thanks to the lightness and the flip chip, and totally bomber on the fast/gnarly bits. I don't reeeaaally want to sell it, but for a fair offer I'd be happy to see it go to a good home and take it as a sign from the universe that maybe I ought to look into a Sight for next year after all.... Frame is XXL. Could be compared to most brand's XL on newer models (505mm reach). I'm 6' 3" 190ish and was certainly comfortable. High-end Rockshox CF Pro build > Lyrik RC2 (super impressed with this fork) (recently rebuilt by iON) > Superdeluxe RC3 (climb switch) > SRAM GX 12-speed drivetrain, tuned up, no complaints at all > Code RS brakes on 200mm rotors > 170mm dropper > Raceface cockpit, fresh ODI Rogue "pillow-tops" Excellent condition. The frame is 100% other than a few to-be-expected visual scuffs. Zero nicks on stanchions. I've honestly never crashed on it. I try to be totally transparent in my ads without exaggerating, so here's the couple small things I will let you know: > Tires approaching end-of-life. I would say front is about 80% tread remaining and rear is getting down to like 60%. I do have two brand new DRH II 3C EXO+ that I could throw in for the right price ($60 each?). > Dropper has a bit of rotational play, which e-thirteen says is easily fixed by tightening a few internal bolts, but this requires a Shimano cassette tool I never got around to picking up > Getting close to where the shock would benefit from the 50 hour service, if you're the type to run a tight ship with that sort of stuff (which I normally am, but the parts needed are on backorder in Canada) I would INCLUDE all the stuff that came with the bike, shock pump, torque wrench, etc. For this price I also WOULD INCLUDE the Raceface Atlas pedals on the bike now. I would happily lower the price by $100 if you don't need the pedals, or could knock off $50 if I keep the Atlas but I throw in some brand new black Chesters I have had in the box for years. Located in Salmon Arm BC. Preference will be given to local pickup, though I am willing to ship for a fair offer. I get decent rates through work, one time I checked for a guy in Oregon and it was $125 CAD for 4-day UPS. Message me for my number, I am flexible to chat evenings Hopefully I'm not forgetting anything! Thanks for reading have a great day

Scott Releases New 180mm Ransom eRide
Interesting Zeb with Fox X2 on the 920 build. Wonder why. Maybe I'm wrong but don't see that very often

Bike Check: Myriam Nicole's Commencal Supreme Mullet
"after visiting the manufacturer in China, Max decided to put a stop to it all. “I was so disappointed to see the bad, bad conditions for the workers... young people with the carbon dust, with only a poor paper mask. The owner was saying 'No, it is like this'... I wasn't comfortable with that.” That was the end to carbon at Commencal, but it wasn't just the humanitarian side that leaves the company as aluminum advocates. As Max explains, a carbon mold is expensive and leaves little room to tweak and change the design, something which Commencal are constantly playing with, especially with their race team." "we believe [carbon] is difficult and dangerous to implement and is not currently processed within an acceptable environment for workers in China and elsewhere. In addition, producing non-recyclable and impact-shy frames (in an ever increasing eco world) when we’re trying to makes thing cleaner and greener seems inappropriate."
