RockShox Reverb Review
Gravedigging time. I just rode my 2012 reverb at -15c. Elixirs 7 worked well, fox suspension did ok but my reverb stopped working entirely after 30 minutes. I could cycle it all the way up and down with my hand without touching the remote. Not good. When I got home I let it warm up and it didn't get any better, so I removed it and plugged in a shock pump. 0psi. That's odd because I didn't hear an air leak or anything blowing up while riding. Once it was full of air, it cycled through the travel but it was choppy and noisy. It looks and sounds like some air got into the oil circuit, I guess I'll have to bleed it. For the record, I had a full maintenance on it when the season started so it wasn't neglected and it worked flawlessly before I left home. I rode it around -5 with no problem before so maybe I was unlucky but from now on I would advise refraining from bringing one outside when its below -10. First thing I thought when it happened was "I guess that's a good argument for cable actuated droppers" but after looking around on the web a little, some people claim their cable droppers seized when it was cold enough.

Pinkbike Awards: Product of the Year Nominees
Yeah, it will take a while before it replaces some processes but for stuff like upper chain guides I can see it being useful. I saw some people post some on reddit and they say they work great. There are videos on youtube of guys working on making parts for complex stuff like assault rifles with some relative success. We aren't there yet but I think we will see significant avances in our lifetime.

Pinkbike Awards: Product of the Year Nominees
I liked the brakes. Got to ride them a little this summer and they have that Avid modulation I like with some well needed power increase, MSRP is also great compared to a lot of "high end" offerings. It's a good product but it's a sad year for MTB if they're making it on the "product of the year" list. As for the pike being a game changer, I got to ride that one too and I liked it but I found it nowhere close to being as much of a gamechanger as most reviewers are claiming. I tried the CCDB inline and I found that one brought a lot more to the table than the fork.

Good work! I always like to see 3d printing projects as I believe it is going to be future in a lot of industries. The days of being charged crazy prices for cheap plastic parts will come to an end for those who like to tinker.

Also, that bib puts a lot of material in one of the areas I tend to get sweaty the most, at that point I'd much rather use a bottle cage if I really wanted to avoid backpacks altogether.

Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt BC Edition - Review
Why not? The foldable version of the DHF is like 100g heavier than the stock tire and you get more aggressive tread. Sometimes I feel like downgrading travel could be appropriate on a lot of trails but I would never sacrifice grip.

Mark Matthews Launches Online Fundraiser
The pseudo raffle idea is cool but if we could buy the proposed kits at a discount and some of the profits would go to mark, I would have bought that Chromag Monk package, as I was looking at it on their website this week... Just a thought, I donated anyway as I can't imagine how much that would suck to be in his situation...

Pinkbike Poll: Are You Plagued By Flat Tires?
I ran chunders/nevegals on the rear of the DH bike and never flatted. Switched to a Kaiser and flatted a ton. The kaiser requires a little more pressure to be flat proof but the compound sticks so much that you still get enough grip. As long as you have enough pressure in there I think you'll be fine and that's why I feel a lot of people have different experiences with the same tires. The stiffness of your rims also plays a huge role.
