First Look: FSA Carbon Wheelsets
The NERD (Nerd Engineers: Reading Division) office of Pinkbike Detectives strikes again! I figured that the designers who built the wheels would have their math in order. NOT!

Espresso Doppio Inflate and Repair Cartridge - Review
I don't think Co2 liquefies - except for a millisecond before it becomes a rock. The excessive pressure that Co2 cartriges require would make a large volume can foolishly heavy and, perhaps, dangerous to use. Propane gas is used because it is cheap and it liquifies at a safer, lower pressure than inert options like nitrogen or helium.

First Look: Rocky Mountain's Carbon Thunderbolt MSL
Ironically, all threaded bottom bracket bearings are press-in types - either into the frame, or into the threaded cups. The bearings can and do creak in the cups as well. With the correct tools, press-fit BBs are easy to install, and there is no need for facing the frame and chasing the threads - nor is there a possibility of cross-threading them. Now that frame makers are able to hold the necessary tolerances, pressing the bearings into an aluminum cup that then threads into the frame is redundant, so it is only a matter of time before threads dissappear from all performance bicycle frames.

Motivated^^^The bike in the photo has Shimano XTR carbon wheels, because Stan's Valor wheels were not available yet.

It easily fills 2.4 inch 26er tires to the same pressure, I'm sure it can handle a 2.6

First Look at YTs new Carbon DH Prototype
^^^ Our guys are working it out right now. The joke is, next year smart phones will be smart enough to sort it out anyway. So we will have developed a fix for 26-inch-wheel phones.
