    Guides yay or nay

    SLX shadow+ 10sp and a 32t RaceFace front ring. Pretty much the same setup I have had on the full suspension bikes, might be a chain line thing?

    Guides yay or nay

    With clutched rear derailleurs I rarely drop chains on full suspensions bikes, but on my xc hardtail the chain dropped all the time. So ended up with a guide on the xc bike.

    The redbull coverage did not really show the tight spots. I only saw how tight it was a day or two after the race from rider head cams.

    Child trailers for single track

    Any one seen this - Of course you would not go through rock gardens and wip through corners with a kid in the back. But you can definitely ride with a trailer on the back.

    Gripsport Dual Bike Carrier Review

    Just wanted to add that I found some stuff called Plastimake which I used to do the same sort of thing as the guys using plasti-dip are doing. See here - Worked well, no more beat up cranks and cheaper than plasti-dip.
