USA MTB National Championships Update
Stephen Ettinger put in an amazing race at the Pan Am Games last weekend, winning bronze. Awesome crowd and I'm sure the U.S. nationals had just as much enthusiasm. I can't find the name of the other American rider but he made a dramatic come back after flatting early on in the race.

What is it about North Wales in November that requires more than a mini chain tool to repair a broken chain? Not that you're wrong about detachable tools, I keep a close eye on the 8mm removable hex when the Allen keys come out.

Manitou Swinger 4-way coil 7.5x2.0 BROKEN

$60 CAD
This 2006 Swinger 4-Way coil shock is sold in its current condition. Spring is a Fox 7.5x2.45 as selected by the service centre for my weight (150lbs kitted up). There is a hairline crack on the mount near the blue rebound knob which causes the shock to leak oil. I sent it in for custom tuning and service 4 times before finding out, only to learn that the service centre cannot get a hold of the replacement part. Everything else is like new, and I have the old O-rings and such from the original service. Perfect for salvage parts. If you are interested, best way to contact is via this website. I am also interested in anyone offering this model so I can salvage the mounting piece and get mine working again.

9Point8 Fall Line Dropper Post - Sea Otter 2015
I have an X-Fusion O2 so I am not against purchasing the Hilo, but only the original comes in 27.2. Apparently the SL update is quite a bit better, and has more travel (important because most of my height is in my legs). Still considering it, but the $:durability ratio is a lot less competitive. I hear the GD is stupid simple to maintain, so could I run it without the boot and just service it more frequently? Function should always come before form, but that boot is just so damn ugly.

9Point8 Fall Line Dropper Post - Sea Otter 2015
I want a modern 27.2 sized dropper that won't cost me my first born child. Guess its Gravity Dropper or nothing.

Day 1 Randoms - Sea Otter 2015
I think the $5 a foot contest is awesome. Definitely going to show that to the local club to see if something similar could be done here. Probably wouldn't be a $10,000 bike up for grabs, but a generous LBS might donate a $1500 bike, and if at least that much is raised we could finally get some signage at the local trail system. Better navigation = more riders = more bike sales for the LBS. Any idea how much it costs Sierra Buttes to contract trail builders per mile or per day?

LifeProof frē iPhone Case - Review
Phone companies should stick to making phones, maybe waterproof them, but stay away from "ruggedizing" them. I lf your $1500 (ballpark guess for off-contract, unlocked price of hypothetical phone) rugged iPhone gets a crack in the casing, you need to buy a new phone instead of a much cheaper case. I don't think I would trust a rugged iPhone to be stepped on by a cow, or survive a trip through an augar. Not to mention most rugged smartphones I've seen are not worth buying. Before the S5 Active pretty much the only one available was the Rugby which is stuck on 2.3 and slow as molasses.
