Transition TR500 - Review
I wouldn't say that every downhill bike has a 'flickable and playful side', at least one that's as easily accessible as the TR500's. Take a bike like Banshee's Legend, or the Scott Gambler - they're both highly capable bikes, but 'playful' wouldn't be the word that immediately comes to mind when describing them. Of course, I'd recommend a test ride as well - the point of a review is to give you an idea of what to expect, a little background information you can use when narrowing down your choices.

You're right. Matt Wragg's geologic knowledge may not be as strong as his photography skills. Fixed.

Spotted: Jared Graves' Yeti SB6c Prototype
I haven't tried the DHR + Ikon combo, but the Minion DHF + Ikon is a blast on hardpacked, summertime trail conditions. The Ikon has a surprising amount of grip for how little tread it has.

True, at least until they make bikes that can fly. That'll be really big news.

ANVL Components Forge Saddle - Review
I've found that if a seat works well on one bike it'll typically be just as comfortable on another. The actual positioning of the seat - the angle and where it's clamped to the post - may vary from bike to bike due to the seat tube angle and the reach of the bike, but the comfort level should remain the same.

Proven Here. SB5 Carbon and the San Juan Mountains
It'll be just fine. The link itself only needs to move 4mm up and down. During my time on the bike, which included a number of muddy rides, I didn't encounter any issues. I even refrained from washing the mud off of the linkage after a ride to see what would happen the next time I headed out. The result? Nothing. No creaking, and the link worked without any trouble.

Yeti SB5c - Review
That weight is correct - I verified it on a Park DS-1 scale. The hardware itself doesn't add that much weight, plus it has light wheels, tires, and a 1x drivetrain.

There's no damper in the mechanism itself - there's minimal resistance in either direction. The purpose of the rods is to help control the wheel path, and allow the engineers to get the leverage curve they want.
