Tech Tuesday - Shimano Brake Bleed
It does doesnt it! too bad it doesn't work : after 10's of bleed times the lever feels just spongy ride after ride. I bought zee brakes to replace elixir. Too bad, wasted money.

Giant Reign X2 frameset OR frame only. Size M (17") purchase year and model of 2012. The bike has been ridden lots, but it's been rebuilt too every 1000km or so, including shock and fork. Frame's bearings have been changed about 6 months ago. Frame has typical wear marks on painting, but no big dents or cracks. Thus to clarify, frame and fork are fully working and coming from my nro 1. bike. Why? for a change of size. I'm 175cm (5'10") short. I'd recommend the frame for 168cm to 182cm, depending on taste. Lyrik fork has some wear damage on left side stanchion, about 2cm^2. You wouldn't recognize the wear judging by plushness compared to a new one. I've replaced forks bushings and seals about 6 months ago.I have CNC-machined the shorter 35mm stem myself from alumec89 (harder than al7075-t651). I've been riding with it ever since so I'm confident it will hold even the gnarliest of crashes. 60mm stem is original Giant AM.

9Point8 Pulse Dropper Post - Review
Was thinking the same as WAKIdesigns, the feature that dropper post enables is far greater than the weight penalty, and not just on "fun" scale, but against clock too. 9.8 pulse here is in weird category - you can get a dropper post for same weight, but with more reliable function and easier service for 1/4th of the price. ICE left V8 works on -20ºC degrees too, which is really convenient when residing in nordic countries. Couple of years back I started thinking of getting a dropper post, I was only worried about the price vs. durability. I should have bought the item sooner. I'll never go back to a normal post on MTB, so I can recommend these for anyone who doesn't yet have one. Useful in everything except road or CX.

Enve Minnaarbar - Greg Minnaar Replica 808-millimeter Carbon DH Handlebar
That is some expensive testing! Two guys dropping a bar for hours! No wonder ENVE stuff costs what it costs.

Movies For Your Monday
Above the wall - the video is perfect example of complete lack of style. Yes he can perform outrageously hard and technical stunts, drops and balances which I'll never be able to do, yet he completely lacks that "thing" which makes you want to see more and say yell WOW! Not everyone can be Akrigg or MacSkill with just good technique.
