Commencal Meta Hip Hop - Review
I want to like this so much but.. Why not have a nice short 415 or 420mm chainstay if you're going 26? The chainstay length combined with the head tube cut too short would take a lot of the playfulness out of the ride, and I guess that could be why it doesn't seem to have an advantage over 27.5 in terms of character. I wonder which has more contradictions, the bike or the article?

WAKi-Leaks Installment 8 - Mental Side of MTB
Schadenfreude is not glee. it is the act of taking pleasure from someone else's misfortune or pain. Many a comedian has used it to get stinking rich.

Ask Pinkbike - Nevegal Tire Upgrade, Converting a 26-inch Bike to 27.5-inch Wheels, and Choosing the Correct Spring
Ti springs are noticably lighter than steel. I've heard the "no more than two turns of preload" thing a few times and never listened, putting as much preload on the spring as I damn well please has never caused me a problem. Lots of preload to get the right sag gives a nice linear feel to the spring that suits some frames very well. Just measure the gaps between the coils, and add them up to make sure the coil will not bind on full compression. I'm sure if one neglects to set the rebound to suit the extra preload there could be damage to the shock, but hey if your bike is set up like that, it's going to be trying to send you over the bars every time you get air.

Dwheel is pretty good, bearings could use adjustment.. or just ride it like ya stole it. 130 bucks if you wants the tube and tire. Locals preferred, but could ship. If you buy my joker, you can have this for 55.00

The bearings are good on these, I have a chainring as well. Not much use on them.

This is the bike that let me start riding fast enough to actually hit stuff, and my number of crashes per year went waaay down to!! I posted this up as a frame before, but couldn't let it go. I think next year I'll ride the 6" bike. everything works, It's ready to ride, but could use fork seals and a little tlc on the hubs. Set up for seven speed. There is a dent in the seatstay, but it's still bomber. Tires are fresh, though they might not be the pictured ones

DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
You guys talk about bushing overlap, sure bushings further apart are better. Are we just spouting what we've read in reviews, or does anybody have any actual overlap meaurements? If not, there is no science to the arguements. Bike companies could claim an advantage if their overlap is 2mm more, in which case the only advantage would be in marketing not physics. In GP motoracing, there used to be problems with bushing binding on braking, which prompted Britten to reinvent the girder fork, with great sucess. Bearings on pivots are much less likely to bind from forces out of plane with the stantions. That said though, girder forks never really caught on, everybody likes the telescopic, because they are used to it I guess.
