WINNING BIKE: Greg Minnaar's Santa Cruz V10

For a single run I can’t imagine why they wouldn’t remove seals, adjust the preload on the light side and just put a little oil in them. An advantage of running hubs with serviceable and adjustable bearings.

That sucks. I really liked their Bible reviews and interesting opinion pieces. Since Turman is leaving, maybe Vital can swoop in and get some good talent

As much as I like comparisons such as this one, there just always too many variables to eliminate and narrow down the true differences in runs. It always comes back to the human element. Seems like Dave did a great job. I’d take it for what it’s worth and not get hung up on how scientific it is or isn’t. What works best for each rider is what matters. Just like the wheel size debate.

I’ve thought about this too. Drivetrain and brakes are the sticking point. Paul does have mechanical disc brakes. SRAM and Hayes are US based, but don’t think they make any brakes here. If singlespeed you could do white industries all the way. Velocity ... more »

Been splitting my time between my Commencal E bike and my Pivot firebird 29 for the past 2 years and really with an open mind see no downside. The fitness level for both is the same I feel as you push hard on the E bike( yes you can moto uphill,) more effort the faster you go.. on...more

The worst track is the one with inconsistent conditions that makes less about the racer and more about sheer chance (Lourdes 2017). And how is it that RedBull so regularly misses covering the crux sections of the courses? Rider X gains 3 secs on the ... more »

Only tires I’ve run the same F&R have been WTB Breakout (bummed they’re no longer made), Hans Dampf (loves them, just didn’t last though it was the early version), Conti Trail King (no good for my conditions, loose and rocky)

The Jeffsy has a very progressive leverage rate. They work really well with a coil. Higher up it said you might not be very happy with MegNeg on a progressive bike.

I find other things wrong with the NBC/UCI deal.

I too don’t want a subscription, just they me pay for 1 event if I want to. Let my dollars speak for what I like in the programming line up.

Finding out they just did a race recap and. It the live broadcast makes more glad I bypassed they system with a vpn. I’d be really pissed to $54 for one event with a crappy recap.

If timed training meant anything, Gwin would never have a race win to his name. Some try to get up to speed early, others use the time to analyze lines.

I'd have to do some digging again. I researched it a while back due to wanting to run a coil on whatever trail bike I got. Perhaps what I read was misleading review info, but it sure sounded like it came Ibis. Combined with the leverage chart from - http://linkagedesign.blogspot.com/2018/04/ibis-ripmo-29-2019.html I decided it wasn't progressive enough for a coil shock to work properly under me.
