Aaron Gwin to Join Crestline as Rider & Part-Owner for 2024 - Full Interview & Podcast
Same idea as any other high pivot bike. The high (effective) pivot location means the rear axle moves backwards as the suspension compresses. That means when the suspension compresses, the distance from the cassette to the chainring gets longer, which creates pedal kickback. It also means that tension on the chain interferes with the suspension compressing. The idler moves the chain up closer to the pivot location to minimize those issues; while the distance from the cassette to the chainring grows a lot when the suspension compresses, the distance from the cassette to the idler only grows a little (and a little bit of growth is good for pedaling efficiency).

The horst link / FSR link patent expired, and tons of brands produced variations on that suspension design. Now the VPP patent expired, so brands like Crestline are making VPP bikes. Such is the way of the bike industry.

Video: Bernard Kerr Testing the Road Gap at Red Bull Hardline Tasmania
I hope the Tasmania edition has some legit tech and isn't "hard" just due to big drops with too flat landings.

Must Watch: 'Afterlife' with Brandon Semenuk
Burly old school freeride moves. Techy slopestyle moves. Scenic moves on pretty landscapes. Semenuk really knows how to appeal to all manner of bike dorks.

4 Interesting Prototypes From Emerging European Brands
It's pretty cool that you can buy the Ruffy as a box of tubes, and then weld them together yourself. I suck at welding, but I'm pretty good at gluing stuff. I wonder if Atherton would send me a box of tubes and lugs and a bottle of glue for cheap.

Velo Digest: Who Earns the Most in Pro Road Cycling, Reconsidering Fasted Training, WorldTour Team Bikes, & More
@karpiel002: sure, if you're including shorts and things like that, rampage footage gets way more than 10 million views. But if we're including those, then TDF gets way more than 3 billion views. The TDF winner ends up on the front page of the New York Times. Lance Armstrong was (famously) on Oprah. Every major news network covers the TDF. Most of those outlets have never even heard of rampage, much less covered it. Trying to argue that rampage gets comparable coverage is kind of ridiculous.

@karpiel002: redbull rampage isn't even remotely close to TDF in terms of views. Granted, it's hard to compare a single day event with a weeks long event. But rampage replays get around 4 million views on YouTube. So let's say 10 million views across all platforms. Most estimates put total TDF viewership at around 3 billion. It's the second most watched sporting event behind the world cup (football/soccer). When 3 billion people tune into mountain biking, it's safe to say that salaries will be higher.
