Review: Kona's Fresh Hei Hei Can Make Cross-Country Fun - Pond Beaver 2020
@GZMS: 10 minutes at a time. You might have three or four uphill stages per day, same as the down stages. Maybe it only works with certain types of terrain, but that's pretty representative of my typical ride. For my climbs I link a series of singletrack trails up with fireroads in between, and then try to ride as much singletrack as possible on the way down. Each trail could easily be a "stage" unto itself, or be broken into a few stages. EWS and enduro in general definitely seem to have evolved into DH races that you pedal to. That's cool, but it no longer represents how or what I like to ride. Then again, as I keep proving, I’m not fast enough to be a racer, so what I would want to "race" maybe isn't all that important to anyone else. Lol

Review: Kona's Fresh Hei Hei Can Make Cross-Country Fun - Pond Beaver 2020
@GZMS: been thinking about this. You could potentially solve this problem by having some timed uphill stages, but still having transfers too. As long as the uphill and downhill stages take roughly the same length of time for a fit rider, it should reward an all-round rider and all-round bike.

5 Bikes From the House Show 2020
Regarding the Druid: “ This chainring is a slight update to the bike and is apparently super-reliable.” Does this mean people are having problems with chains falling off idlers on early models?

[Updated] Race Rumours Recap: A Run Down of the Holiday Silly Season
Anybody else familiar with Canadian punk band, Forgotten Rebels? FMD brings up something quite different (and NSFW) for me thanks to them.

Enter to Win a Joystick Prize Pack Including Bar, Stem, Grips & Saddle - Pinkbike's Advent Calendar Giveaway
Had an Analog carbon bar as part of the build that came on a bike back in 2012, so they've been around a good while. That was a pretty comfortable bar for me. I ran it for five seasons and it treated me well. Would buy again if we had a local dealer.

Enter to Win A SRAM Code RSC Brakeset - Pinkbike's Advent Calendar Giveaway
@BikesBoatsNJeeps: in fairness, Codes don't feel like Guides. Despite a long history of being an anti-SRAM-for-brakes guy, I actually like my Code Rs.

Backcountry.com Suspends All Legal Actions & Publishes Apology Letter From CEO
@kingtut87: For anyone who might be interested in Blister's dissection but hasn't passed Google-Fu 101, the direct link is here: https://blisterreview.com/industry-news/boycott-backcountry-com My favourite passage: "And second, screw you for using the language of “last resort” — you were not forced to resort to anything here. You were not being harmed, you were not the target of malicious activity, and we are smart enough to know this. You have convinced none of us, and you insult all of us with your “last resort” language. We call bullshit."

10 of the Weirdest MTB Marketing Videos Ever
@bkm303: out of curiosity, I took a look at their website. They're so entrenched in road that they appear to be unaware of how mountain bikers even read a geo chart. I was interested in reach and stack (likely for the purpose of ridiculing the geometry, I must admit), but those two measurements are absent. http://www.pinarello.com/en/bike-2018/mtb/dogma-xm-9.9 Looks like 2018 was the last model with rear suspension. I guess we all mostly stick with what we're good at.
