First Ride: RockShox's New Zeb Fork
"Zeb." You had cool names there for a while, Rock Shox. You had a good run. "Faak" would've been a good one for this.

First Ride: RockShox's Updated DebonAir Air Spring - Pond Beaver 2020
@VorsprungSuspension: @VorsprungSuspension: "...meaning stiffer initial spring rate, less sag, poorer small bump compliance at the top of the travel..." I get that part of your explanation, which explains how this upgrade helps keep the fork up. But I also read that the mechanism just got shifted up, so ride height went higher, but fork performance isn't affected. That second one is what I'm hoping for, because my Pike is a little too stiff for me if I were to maintain a sag between 25% and 30%. I like to have the fork ride high to maintain as much of the bike's intended geo as possible. I think that's almost everyone's problem with most forks.

Opinion: 4 Lessons From Riding Inexpensive Bikes
Regarding the last thing (LBS vs Online): I have a YT Jeffsy and I belong to a YT owners FB group. I would say a quarter of the posts there are questions about sizing. This wouldn't be a problem for those looking at bikes by any of the big three, of course. I am lucky enough to live just a few hours from YT's California location, so I bought my bike knowing it will fit. These companies like YT and Canyon should try and make deals with local bike shops who cater to those who'd spend 3-5k on bikes where they'll stock mediums, maybe larges. Anyone who tries those sizes will know if that's their size, or if they'll have to size up/down. The sale will (hopefully) happen at the shop too. But then, the Coronavirus...

SRAM Commits to Greater Gender Parity & 'More Women to the Start Line'
@jason333: There's nothing bad about touting your plans if you're a business. It's just part of marketing. I understand that "inclusion" is a hot topic these days and seems overused especially in Hollywood, but at the heart of it -- it's a good thing :)
