Pinkbike Poll: Is the DH Bike Dead?
There is no such thing as a DH bike. A bike goes to where you go with it. I use my "DH bike" as an all-mountain bike. With a dropper seatpost, 10-42 cassette and fast-rolling 60a tires front and rear, I can do absolutely everything with it.

@DangerDave2dot0: Neither Maxxis nor Onza are "young". However I remember the first two tires that I bought in 1992 were a Hutchinson and a Onza, and those were the top brands. Maxxis was around but it simply stood for cheapness. Not something that you would want on a good bike. It took a long time until I started to see Maxxis as a good brand.

Schwalbe Magic Mary - Review
It takes high pressure for the tire to set into the rim. Go to a car or truck workshop where they have a high pressure tire inflation system. That's what I used to do for the hardest to set tires, instead of going to a fuel station pump, but now I pressurize a 2l soda bottle to 70 or 80psi, and then release the air from there directly into the tire, which works perfectly. You should also spread soapy water on the tire beads before. And remember to remove the inner part of the valve before, so the air can flow better.

Schwalbe Magic Mary - Review
@SintraFreeride: The same as EuanBisset145 here. I had an almost new Hans Dampf SG at the back which I cut at the top during the landing of a 1.1 meter jump, during my run at the national enduro championship in Gondramaz. A small 1cm cut but which enough to screw up my run and render the tire useless for tubeless, as no fluid can fix it. I really wasn't expecting that as the jump wasn't that big and there were only some little rocks on the ground.

10 Bikes From the 2015 Trans-Provence
Purple is awesome, I'm liking it more now than in the nineties. The Santa Cruz does look girlish, though, probably as intended. The frame and fork would need to have a darker colour.

" I run a 2.2 rear and 2.4 front and if I put 28 psi in the rear I need to put 30+ psi in the 2.4 to get the same footprint." Differences in carcass rigidity also matter and that must be what is confusing you. That and rim width, are your front and rear rims of the same width? I have been using two tires at the front, a 2.4 and a 2.35, which both feel solid and non-squirmy with 20-22 psi or even less. And at the rear I used to have a 2.35 which I needed to run at 28psi to avoid squirminess, while with another 2.35 tire from the same brand 25psi did just fine. These are all tubeless; in my pre-tubeless times I used to run 40psi front and rear. Iin principle, for similar tires, having more pressure at the front than at the rear seems counter-reason for sure, because the rear tire is under a lot more weight, and so does adding more pressure to the larger tires. Usually smaller tires need a lot more pressure.

Pretty confusing conclusion. Grip is better, yet the bike is not a clock-beater because of the 1% increase in rolling resistance? Is this supposed to be a road bike or something?

Congratulations, you got yourself a nice strong fork-breaking frame.

DH Photo Epic - Sea Otter 2015
@ bikeeagle: DH means downhill. Down the hill. Going down with a bycicle. Even if it's a bike with no suspension at all. 6" though, is already a lot. The first Boxxers had 6" of travel, double crowns and 20mm axles. But I guess those were all mountain forks, by your definition.
