Final & Quali Results: Redbull Hardline 2018
That could have been the best Hardline yet if we hadn’t already known the results when watching the “live” broadcast. Fuckwits.

Final & Quali Results: Redbull Hardline 2018
So the “live broadcast” isn’t live and the results are out 24 hours before you can even watch it. And we didn’t know to avoid all the bike websites and social media because we thought the race wasn’t on until Sunday. How stupid?!!

Review: Cotic FlareMAX
@justanotherusername: Plastic is the generic term for lots of polymer materials. Carbon fibre bike frames are carbon fibre reinforcement polymer, just like a fancier version of glass fibre reinforced polymer.

Comparison Test: Are Wider Rims Better? We Try 4 Different Widths
Better to look at the true tyre width in mm, than the mythical imperial size. Magic Mary 2.35" is about the same size as a current Maxxis 2.5" (and much bigger than older Maxxis 2.5) and as big as some so-called 2.6" tyres too. I'm still on 25.5mm rims and am running various 2.3", 2.4" and 2.5" WT Maxxis tyres. They're all a good shape on that width. The Minion SS 2.3 would definitely be too square on even a 30mm. The DHR2 2.4 WT is surprisingly square on the 25.5 rim and I wonder how it would be on the 35mm it's allegedly designed for? The DHF 2.5 WT and Shorty 2.5 WT would be squarer on a wider rim but they're certainly not too round on the narrower rim.

@mattwragg: I'm not sure why you think the 471 and 511 should have identical stiffness? The latter is wider and heavier, and the extra width will give it a greater second moment of area in resisting lateral deflection.

Review: Ibis Ripmo
@oilpathsuspension: You’be got it the wrong way around. 51mm offsets were to speed up 29er steering to match 26” bikes with the same head angle. The new trend for shorter offsets is reduce front-centre length for long reach slack head angle bikes (improving front wheel weighting and balance at low speed) whilst making the head angle feel even slacker at speed (by increasing the trail figure).

Deviate Cycles - Press Release
@Bahh: If there is chain growth, how does that happen without snapping the chain? Or is there a chain tensioner on there that I haven't spotted?
