As said above, it really depends on the bike. For me it's all about having a balanced build. Putting high end stuff on a crappy bike won't help that much and in the end it will probably costs more than buying a good bike. That being said, I think a common ... more »

Alright, for the knees I find that it is extremely personal. Last time I bought kneepads, I had to try like a dozen brands/models/sizes before finding some that really fitted me well (fox launch pro d3o). However you can look toward lightweight "xc" ... more »

Hi, first congrats to your dad for still riding ! To answer your question, the first thing is to determine what kind of armour you are looking for: parts of the body you want to protect (or type of injury you are afraid of) and riding style. Generally ... more »

Met has been using that kind of technology (at least on the full face parahute). I'm easily sweating from the head and experience the same kind of issues with regular helmets. On the met the front pad is replaced by a full silicone pad with small "channels"

According to the mtbr thread, with a 55mm shock you get around 155mm of travel.
Right now the bike is feeling pretty awesome, really balanced for enduro racing. I'm considering lowering the front travel to 150-155 to get a little more relaxed geo though.
For the 53mm stroke, its just a 2mm travel spacer to add to a 55mm shock. It's possible to do it without going for a full service on the shock.

You guessed right. No issue with the rear wheel. According to the mtbr.com thread, it's possible to get a good 160mm of travel without hitting the tire (possibly only on the high position though).

Disregarding the social media aspect and questions of why would people speed things up, here is a quick though: In the photography world, we know there is a lot of photoshoping and editing going around. Now People tend to say this about any photo that

Well, intentionally speeding up is definitively lame. I remember being a teenager (before instagram even existed) and being impressed by a semi-pro european movie (Virtuous from Ionate). And my older brother-in-law who worked in tv production told me

@jimmy Who is talking about giving a pass ? We're talking about staying put and measured as long as we don't have all the facts and the sentences from governing bodies. I can see two opposite points of view in the above (here with a touch of caricature)

@jeff.brines I hear you, and overall I think like you that we should remain cautious and measured about all this. I mean it would be crazy to punish the same way someone being caught while speeding 2 mph above the limit and someone driving recklessly ... more »

A couple more things not directly related to the testing process: from a medical point of view each individual should be considered as unique. It just means that every person is reacting differently and for some biological parameters or drug metabolism ... more »
