Five Ten Hellcat and Freerider Pro - Crankworx Whistler 2016
@mtb505: My M200 lasted 3 months but to be fair the Trans-Provence Race destroys shoes (of all brands) and credit to Shimano for replacing them in four days (from submission at shop to new shoes arriving). I have 5.10 Freeriders that are five years old but my favorite pairs tends to wear out in 1-2 years before needing a re-sole.

@Earthmotherfu:“When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” is actually attributed to Arthur Conan Doyle. Credit where credit is due please.

@ilovedust: Can't see a WTB Tyre with TCS Tough sidewalls failing before a Maxxis trail tyre (including EXO) ever!?

Dear Bike Industry - Opinion
Because of the DW-Link suspension or because of the 157 Super Boost rear wheel spacing?

Dear Bike Industry - Opinion
@Tsoxbhk: Its not the metric bit that makes the huge change it is the fact that with the "new metric shocks" the shock length is larger in comparison to the stroke length so there is a greater surface area and oil volume to deal with heat build up and dissipation which is what leads to inconsistancies and fade in air shocks. No different to deciding that a 216 x 50 makes more sense than a 200 x 50. The whole metric things is pure marketing hyperbole.

SRAM Acquires ShockWiz Suspension Tuning Tool - Crankworx Whistler 2016
If you want HSC/ LSC adjusters on your fork buy a Fox 36. If you insist on running a Pike then install a FAST cartridge which is a: custom tuned for your weight and riding style and b: has independent, meaningful HSC/ LSC and RB.

Anneke Beerten's GT Sanction - Bike Check
59 kg, DH casing (on rear), 2.4" tyre on a 26.6mm internal width rim. She uses precision, timing and pressure control so no problem with tyre roll.

Intense Primer 29 - Review
Press fit and no ISCG tabs equals a total fail! And WTF are they thinking with that cable routing under the BB?! With all the flexibility that carbon fibre imparts to bike design that was the 'best' place thye could find to locate them. "A conversation with Intense CEO Andrew Herrick revealed that at some point, a meeting was called and the staff were asked, "What kind of components were on their personal bikes?" And, "Exactly why do you insist upon using those items?" The next question was, "Why then, do we spec different components on our production models?" " How about asking the questions "Does anyone (who still wants a job at Intense after answering this question) think that cable routing under the BB, in the same area that we add a frame guard, is a good idea?". "Does anyone that actually rides hard not use some kind of chain device?"
