Ask Pinkbike - Metric Shock Fitment and Rear Hub Spacing on DH Bikes
I can't see how so many riders are baffled by the idea of new shock sizes. are people sarcastically pretending to be dumb or are they really dumb? Metric ain't nothing but a number.

Fox Flex Air DH Shorts and Jersey - Review
Why, after years and years (I mean at least since the 80's), do apparel companies insist on making their functional riding gear look like pajamas?

The Final Products and People - Sea Otter 2016
@WAKIdesigns: I just swapped DT's EX551 in 29" (25mm Inner width, HEAVY duty rims) for the XM481. I am using the same tires, tape, hubs and spokes -the 481's include the square nipples and washers. They ride fantastic and I am a fan of large volume tires, so my thick tires are even thicker now. It's like adding 10-15mm of supple suspension and there is a big improvement in traction. I use 2.3 vigilante up front and 2.4 trail boss out back (that 2.4 tire is no bigger than the 2.3 up front, I checked with calipers, not sure why they're called by different sizes). They are plenty stiff and holding up good so far but I have an entire season ahead to test their durability. So far, so good. I am still experimenting with air pressure but I went from my normal of 22 psi down to 16-17 with no negative side effects. I'll probably try the 18-19psi range the next few rides, but they felt like I could even go lower if I wanted. I didn't feel any squirm yet, and I weigh @170lbs plus 5-10lbs camelback.

Funn Updown Dropper Seatpost - Sea Otter 2016
@abzillah: It's all perception. I've been riding with a command post since 2012 and I don't even notice it at all. different strokes.

Devinci Wilson Carbon - First Ride
Is anyone else getting tired of testers complaining that their test bike isn't long enough??? Every test bike that isn't a GT or Mondraker? You would've been perfectly happy 4 years ago with that size bike, and you know it. You even qualify that statement immediately by saying it's completely subjective. If you (the MTB media) keep it up, all bikes will have the same geometry in a few years until you change your mind and begin longing for a more comfortable upright position.

I can't say for sure that's an industry wide attitude, but that's been my experience. Most people don't like to believe that they can be wrong. I mean look at ellesworth linkage - that won't change until Mr ellesworth leaves the company, regardless of how badly it affects the company.

When everybody and their dog uses shifter mimicking cable actuators, I doubt any of them could sue Sram for a more ergonomic actuator/button/lever. I've worked in sporting goods manufacturing for much of my career - a rock climbing and ski company and a certain expensive carbon rim maker. There is an attitude of: if we do it different, it's because our way is superior to others, and you better have brand loyalty for the brand you work for. Try telling the head of R&D that their button style actuators should be redesigned to something better and see how long it takes until you're the guy who cleans the toilets around the shop!!
