Magura MT Trail Brakes – Review
Like them or not, they've been making hydraulic brakes since circa 1990 so they are hardly new.

Tech Randoms – EWS Ireland 2017
@salespunk: I don't need to experiment (and who keeps their bike horizontal in a bike stand for days? Even when working on the bike the front end is generally dropped down somewhat), I've either done it, or seen it done thousands of times, including my own Reverb. I also happen to know one of the EWS race mechanics who's at the above race at the moment and he posts plenty of stuff on Instagram, building wheels, etc.....Not one photo of a dropper post being rebuilt. As for leverage, even with modern seat tube angles, when one lands on the saddle you are still exerting quite a bit of backwards force on the seatpost, unless you have a really weird riding still. I've seen enough bent and broken rigid posts in the last 20+ years to have a basic understanding of the forces at play. I could go on but this is just ridiculous LOL.....

@salespunk: How much leverage do you think is created by a 200lb rider bouncing down on the saddle at an angle, Vs a 30lb bike hanging fairly free on a bike stand? Should we never lift a bike by the saddle with the seatpost extended?

If you think it through logically, how much pressure is placed on the upper section of a dropper post in a stand Vs someone's ass landing on it when riding? Granted I probably wouldn't try and free a seized BB when clamped this way just to be 100% sure, but the only bent upper I've ever seen was a 27.2 X-Fusion post that had a hard life (and promptly exploded when the owner tried to bend it back on the trail LOL etc....). A clean lint free cloth and no clamping of hose / housing is an absolute must though.

Norco Sight C 9.2 – Review
"doesn't pedal so well...." - no idea where you are getting that info from, but come to BC and you'll find out why it's not a creaky, flexy, undernourished POS :)

Livin' Life on Credit - Video
Always good to see the 'normal' trails in videos. The end of CL has got beefed up since I last rode it though :)

Scott Spark 900 - Review
@Primoz: I've worked in shops where carbon frames have cracked before they've even left the shop (I can think of at least 4 immediately) due to falling over. If you want a bike that is impervious to rider error, maybe pick up an old Chromag TRL.
