RockShox's Electronic Wireless Dropper Post - Mont-Sainte-Anne World Cup
Oh course SRAM isn’t spilling the beans, they enjoy this little bit of pre-marketing marketing!

Industry Weighs in on the Latest Round of US Tariffs on Chinese Mountain Bike Imports
@ninjatarian: YT seems to provide a pretty good value considering their frames and materials cost me from China?

Video: Shralping & Sending Downhill on Orange's Cyclocross Racer
Variety my friend...variety is the spice of life. Why would one ride a road bike anyway when mountain bikes are more fun? Why would one canoe when they obviously should be kayaking as it's faster? If everybody did what WE like to do, well imagine all the 'variety' of people showing up at your local trailhead. Fun, no?

First Ride: 2019 Giant Trance 29
They were just too occupied by their Arts and Graphs, BSing how 27.5 was the best and only options for them. Time well wasted by the looks of it!

American Tariffs on Chinese-Made Goods Threaten to Increase Prices for the US Bike Industry
SO retaliatory tariffs on retaliatory tariffs, stemming from imposed tarriffs. I'm surprised that they are surprised??? :-)

6 Things We Learned at EWS La Thuile
@johannensc: Actually the RF Turbine is pretty light. I have it with an Oneup ring and spider, and it is lighter than the outgoing old gen XX1 with a Stainless spider. So apples to apples it would be only a 10-20gr heavier if the XX1 had it's OEM ring. So not that bad, and it's not really rotational weight per se...:-)

Specialized's New BLCK DMND Tire Casing - EWS Petzen-Jamnica 2018
Good move. The Grid this year is thinner than the previous gen Grid. I think Maxxis lovers should give them a try, they are very decent and have a nice feel, and alimony half the price. But they collapse a lot easier than EXO, so a more supportive casing is a must. And that bead protection is a plus if you drive bead rims through your tire ;)

Ask Pinkbike: Coil Shocks on Trail Bikes, Changing Fork Travel, and Drivetrain Upgrades
@groghunter: I'm with the same basic setup on my Sentinel. The LSC is pretty sensitive. There is a fair difference in feel between 4 clicks in and three, and I generally sit in that ball park. Rebound is basically to recommendation. I'm surprised guys are saying Rebound is too slow, but maybe it's weight related as if you have the shock pressure in the 210-230psi range there is a wide range of adjustability.

Review: Guerrilla Gravity Smash
Actually the frameset prices are on par with Transition. Unfortunately our weak Canadian dollar affects pretty much all our mountain bike purchases. Oddly enough we get better deals on Giant that the Americans. Even with our little tit for tat trade war going on right now I'd would purchase from GG over the others as they are hand made by nice dudes. If the $$ is going to an American Company get the best value! The only other true option that would be equivalent for us would be an aluminum Devinci.

Interview: Chris Ball, Director of the EWS - 'Why Would We Mess With A Good Thing?'
@DLuke14: There will always be guys that look for the edge. But remember it's very costly, beyond EWS pay scale costly to take on a systematic program. Tyler Hamilton said it cost him 40-70K per year in early 2000 dollars for his program. Mind you that includes a doctor that won't speak haha
