RockShox RS-1 - Review
^ I'll second this!!! Most of us are at least a little guilty of wanting/owning posh stuff, but someone somewhere is riding a relative pile and can show me up on their worst day riding. Flipped around, I'm sure many of us can slaughter some riders on $6k+ bikes. Yeah, bikes are cool, but they're just bikes.

Video: Dylan Sherrard is Summer Dreamin'
So stylish. True Dylan form- like it's effortless. That jump spot looks so sweet, it's definitely seen some good shovel love. Just sickness all around.

Airborne Toxin - Review
It is in fact possible, I've done it and it makes a huge difference. I would re-configure the shims to have the largest shim in the center, with progressively smaller shims as it works out to the ends of the stack. That and make damn sure the oil height is 102mm from the top of the threads. Good setup is key to getting the knob to have a distinct effect from 0-10 clicks.

Very nice! I noticed your upper slider positioning tho.... at bottom-out in the largest cog it'll rub. Maybe not a prob for you, i'm just a nitpicky mechanic. Still, mad props on your beautiful ride. I want a Ti spring REALLY bad but it's super hard to justify...... even to an MTBing GF

First Look: New Bontrager Direct Mount DH Stem, 3.8'' Wide Tire, and Tubeless Floor Pump
I agree this is a wonderful product concept. I really like the ghetto idea, but I'd adapt it to exclude the pump. Just use my pack pump to put my unflat tire @ 60psi or so, plug the two tires together, open the valve, and be done. I'd want the largest reasonable diameter tubing and I'd have to pack stan's (and maybe a spare tube just in case), but eh, I guess that's just me. Only thought of as I work in a shop and do tubeless setups all the freeking time, but all my personal bikes are tubed..... and I generally shuttle or lift anyway
