If you can't cut a steerer while its installed, you shouldn't even have safety scissors. No point in completely un-cabling an integrated steerer system to cut 5mm off a steerer. The associated costs would be stupid.

No, it isn't. I work for Maxxis my dude. Cheng Shin is indeed our parent company but Maxxis is run as its own company with its own production. Think Toyota and Lexus or Audi and Volkswagen, etc.

I have been to the Maxxis factory in Taiwan which is where Maxxis bicycle tires are made alongside a handful of brands we do white label production for. Cheng Shin has manufacturing in China (this is where CST products are made) and a couple other factories across Southeast Asia.

The more you know...

Canfield bikes are badass and have been for a long time. If they put a water bottle inside the front triangle them (Nimble Nine notwithstanding) I'd put them high on my list. Down tube bottles are a mess and I've had the cages break down there on several occasions.

so are all the bikes going to turn into boring xc bikes to match the boring xc trails in Bentonville?

Heard Reece talking about having a real hard time with vision and the shiny dirt reflecting into his eyes and blinding him. I think the shiny top tube and downtube could have been reflecting some sunlight into his eyes as he was one of the few to be suffering from that issue. I was running clear lenses with a matte frame and I wasn't being blinded, just had a hard time adjusting from light to dark in a few sections (my quali on saturday was about the same light conditions as A practice Friday and Finals today). But weird that Chuck, Loris and Kade didn't have the same problem.

Jeff, with all due respect, do you really find the word "laughable" to be offensive? Do you ever laugh? Do you understand the difference between laughing at someone and laughing at something?

I gotta go ride, so this is the last thing I'll say...

I think people sometimes jump to the conclusion that big tech is suppressing or censoring certain voices, when it's more likely those voices/opinions are just not all that popular.

OMG, never in a million years did I think you'd post a long reply to this. smile

So you're saying that if you post relatively unpopular content, you'll get fewer likes and interactions? Shocker. It doesn't matter if it's "political" -- for example, I got into gravel in the last year and started posting more gravel content. Then my average post likes started going down...because my audience isn't as into gravel as I am. That's not some nefarious plot by Instagram, like Gwin was implying.

"Big tech" may be left-leaning, but the most popular, highest-performing Facebook posts are consistently right wing. The way they monitor and police their platforms may not be ideal, but the idea that there is extreme bias has yet to be proven.

I enjoyed the podcast, applaud Spomer for asking these questions, and appreciate Gwin answering in earnest. That doesn't mean I have to agree with him....which ironically, was his point as well.

Gwin has incredible talent, drive, and a serious work ethic. I still remember watching him ride and race in-person in late '00s and early '10s, and being absolutely blown away by what I was seeing. I hope he returns to the top of the sport, and I'll be cheering for him every run. But, the whole part where he was insinuating that Instagram was suppressing his reach because of his beliefs was pretty laughable. C'mon bruh.
