Katy Winton Reveals Uncertain Future as a Full-Time Racer
@chrismac70: no, not saying any sabotage. It’s more of a coverage issue where UCI went to try to get bigger revenue from Discovery, but probably ended up losing audience instead of gaining more. Some things just don’t scale up well to create bigger profits. I was an early critic of Enduro, but became hooked on the coverage on YouTube and readily admitted I was wrong about Enduro as a discipline years ago. However, I don’t think the sport’s following isn’t big enough or ready for paywall broadcasting to turn a profit for Discovery. Personally, I liked the old recap format where it seemed like a travel show highlighting great biking areas that also covered some racing.

Katy Winton Reveals Uncertain Future as a Full-Time Racer
This situation is confirming so many people’s fears about the UCI takeover followed by Discovery getting the broadcast rights. The YouTube coverage was so much better and I watched every race. I haven’t seen one event Enduro or DH this year.

First Ride: 2024 Trek Slash
It looks like it was on a roof rack and crashed into a parking garage. Yet, I still kinda want it. I have problems, I know.

Review: Devinci Chainsaw - Primed for the Bike Park
@AndrewHornor: thanks for the tech details. Things I didn’t know. I went to the Code RSCs about 5 years ago when Saints were back ordered when I was building up my last bike and haven’t looked back. I have test ridden bikes with the standard Guides and been less than impressed in comparison. Sounds like the RE is a possible good blend of the two. Just a bit of an odd naming choice in my opinion. Probably better to use the Code name like a Code E (for enduro) as you get grumpy people like me wanting stronger brakes than a Guide, which has always been disappointing for many for being 4-piston.

Review: Devinci Chainsaw - Primed for the Bike Park
@cyclesdevinci: I completely respect trying to improve affordability with your products. I just ask you understand how the costs of upgrading brake components are way higher than other places that are often used in budget cutting, such as shifters. I’m way happier riding a bike with higher end brakes and mid grade shifting, and I think a lot of other experienced riders feel the same way. But, as I said before, I’d be willing to see if these RE brakes are as good as you say. But, really, how much cheaper are the Guide REs vs Code’s cheapest version? If SRAM’s giving you super fantastic deals on the REs, then I kind of get it. If it’s $10-20/ unit savings, maybe worth having the better product.

Review: Devinci Chainsaw - Primed for the Bike Park
I have the belief that any bike with a 150mm or greater fork should have Codes, if using SRAM, and at least 200mm rotors. I don’t think I’m alone in that view. Granted, I’m 215lbs and weigh more with my trail bike than most riders on an EBike, but good brakes benefit everyone with a downhill longer than 500 vertical. That said, I’d be willing to try the RE brakes as others have mentioned for having Code calipers. I just still don’t know why that brake exists. Why have that many SKUs in your catalog?
