Schwalbe Rock Razor Tire - Reviewed
I guess you are right. Most DH tires however have big intermediate knobs, but maybe they have more spacing between them and the side knobs to create this higher pressure you are talking about.

I'm not good in tires understanding, but couldn't they just add bigger blocks next to the side knobs, so the tires can fit also less confident riders, that doesn't lean that much? They'll keep the small blocks in the middle, so rolling speed shouldn't be sacrificed.

I didn't buy a walmart bike. My bike was Scott hardtail bike, which I don't think you can find in your walmart stores. But it was lower end spec bike, yes. And I made it mid to high end bike. Similar upgrade steps for everything including wheelsets. And wheelsets was definitely not the most noticeable change on the bike. I gave this example, because it is a perfect example for bike upgardes - starting from the lower end components, where you can feel the biggest difference when upgarding. It's somehow obvious, don't you think?

Sorry for disapointing you, but I upgarded lot of parts of my first xc/trail hardtail bike from lower end components, to mid level and above and I benefit from all of these upgrades, but I mostly did it on my fork upgrade (coil suntour to air rockshox), brakes (mechanical to hydraulic), hadlebar (it gets wider), tyres (much better grip) and I will put my new wheels after all these things. Yes, my Mavic rims will bent much harder, and I shaved some grams (not so many) and we all know that rotational weight is much more noticeable (I know there is something called Physics, even if I wasn't the biggest fan of it), but I would ever go for suspension or braking upgarde, before I look at my wheels. Not to mention even drivetrain alternatives with the new 1x trend. I'm not saying wheels are not a good improvement. For me personally they are not on top of the list. And for the price of a new frameset I wouldn't even say the "wheelset" word on public.

You never had as dramatic improvement as by a wheelset? I see no way wheelset to improve my bike more than a fork, brakes, handlebar or a dropper seatpost. It depends on what are you replacing and what are you replacing with. Wheelsets are part of a bike when you can get some compromises (unless you go for a really heavy wheelset) in favor of a better suspension, dropper post or better tyres. Well, if all these components of your bike are top notch then maybe wheelset is the way to go. But I'm pretty sure you can get similar wheelset in terms of weight for half of the price.

Intro to Fatbikes: Don't Knock It 'til Ya Try One
Come on PB! You throw this Fat things to us during the off season and no one really cared about them. Now the season is started and you are throwing the snow theme and the fat things again. Are you serious? Is Canada still not rideable?

First Ride: RockShox RS-1 Fork – Carbon, Inverted, Expensive and for 29ers Only
Title says four reasons not to be interested in this fork. Thank you PB, for such an informative title, so I can skip the whole article and not waste my time on it. More article titles should be like this.

First Look: ENVE Debuts Four New Carbon Wheels
1000$ for a rim and there is no 559 option for M50 and M60. It seems that April fools will last longer this year.
