Ask Pinkbike: Superbike vs Superbike, Specialized Enduro Shock Upgrade, Press-Fit Bottom Brackets, DH Stanchion Height
The same people who never had a problem with press fit BB's are likely the same people who never had a problem with Avid Elixer's.

Pinkbike Awards: Downhill Bike of the Year
I sorta figured the Demo would win too, and was looking forward to once again critiquing It's too-low main pivot design, and the ensuing debate that would hopefully follow. Props to Pinkbike for not giving in to the hype of a poor design that might look visually better to some, but which is not in the same class as the V10 when it comes to performance. But part of me can't help wonder if the Devinci might have gotten more consideratIon had Steve Smith not been injured and instead had a dominating season. Oh well, maybe next year.

I'm not fast, more of a trick rider.

Intense Spider Pro – Review
"It's a ripper. - RC" With 419 mm chainstays and sporting a 67º HA, it's not a ripper on the shore or any other steep nasty trails. But yeah, maybe for most IMBA-approved trails.

Video also might expose that some of the people testing these bikes aren't particularly skilled riders whose opinions you shouldn't necessarily trust. Not saying that's the case here, but sometimes I wonder. ... Does anybody testing the bikes at Pinkbike race? Or at least have legitimate race results at least at the expert level? It's easy to say you have expert-level DH skills, but it's harder to prove it. Just curious.

At first I thought it was ugly but the more I look at it the more I'm thinking it actually looks cool. I need to work a little more and re-engineer it to give more room behind the seat for the rider but other than that it's a solid design that will usher in a new era of gravity goodness. The future is here and I can't wait to ride it. Imagine whipping a leg over this beast in anticipation for the first balanced DH ride in your lifetime. It's time to accept it, perfect it, and shred it, rather than resist it simply because it's different. All the old designs can now be thrown in the waste-basket as we embrace this exciting Demo-demolishing DH design of the future. Sometimes change is uncomfortable, but progress has no patience and the BFARSAP revolution has arrived!

Red Bull Rampage to Air Today on NBC
Broadcast TV is still gigantic, always will be. The commercial breaks are lame, but It's cool to watch it on a regular tv in an edited format. They've added features on some of the competitors and are showing highlights of the season, etc... so even if you saw it live its a different viewing experience. I facepalmed when I read your buzzkill comment. This is the most dead time of the year for the sport, so this is like a Christmas bonus.

Yes sir it is. Very familiar to the front fork, except we getting DEEVEEOH! to beef up the bushings so that it can withstand the pedaling forces and the increased weight load. It also has no offset at the dropouts, since it isn't for steering. The top of the rear fork is covered with a soft grippy material to sid with Superman grabs snd also to provide protection in case of a crash.
