From the manufacturer:
bigquotesPersonally, I'm a rider and the owner of Mozartt. From my passion for gravity-fueled bikes grew a strong love for progression. My own company was a "dream come true" and building it from scratch really helped me develop not only possibly the best chain guides out there that I ride on myself and tune in for my friends, but also made me the human I am today. Making it work in the biking world is no bread & butter if you want to keep the quality of the final product, to really be able to say "I made this." This is the biggest reward - seeing your projects on bikes of some of the world's best athletes and hearing that they love it. At this point, I am not able to match my desire to ride every day as a pro, but I am in close contact with all athletes I support so I know first hand if there is room for improvement - there always is!

My riders have been on the World Cup tracks or on the cliffs of Red Bull Rampage, they took notes and designed the Mozartt product line with me, year after year. We are not slowing down, and you won't either with Mozartt on your bike

heavy duty DH tubes

• Every tube is individually tested for porosity and guaranteed
• Price: $4.29 for 26" to $8.49 for fat bikes
• Contact: Biketube

From the Manufacturer:
bigquotesBiketube Guy cares: Industry veteran Steve Cuomo launched Biketube to offer better products and prices. Biketube brand inner tubes are made to our specifications by our manufacturing partner in Asia, one of the most technologically advanced in the world, making tubes for global brands such as Cannondale and others. We specify only the best materials for our tubes, beginning with a butyl rubber compound produced using a Banbury Mixing process. After vulcanization, a 100% quality inspection is done, ensuring our tubes conform to the JIS K6304 Standard.

Every single Biketube inner tube is individually inspected. Each one is inflated to 135% its normal size, and then checked 24 hours later. If there is any leakage at all, the tube is rejected. Additional leak checks are done using water. Our standard tubes have a 0.9mm wall thickness, which is held to a variation of 0.04mm or less, and which offers, we feel, the best balance between lightweight and puncture resistance. Our valves are of high quality, using brass (or aluminum alloy on our extra lightweight tubes), and the joint and rubber seat area exceed industry standards for tensile strength. We coat each tube with a thin layer of talc, so that they are less likely to get pinched between the rim and tire bead during installation and don’t become stuck to the tire. We guarantee our tubes to be free from valve leaks and other manufacturing defects when they are delivered to you.

 @ilikebikesyo: definitely warm, even when wet! That's the main purpose, just rode today in Montana with snow all around us and we were layered in merino wool head to toe except missing these gloves!! Warning...merino wool tends to wear out quicker than synthetic materials.

 This is the worst f'ing segment ever, it's like clickbait for pinkbike. Just came to say that.

 Check out this "RioRand" LED night light on for $32.99:

I have been super happy with it considering the price and have started buying it as B-day gifts for friends. IMO this is a f@#! deal and a half considering the cost of good night lights.
  • + 1
 Carefull, I had one similar, knocked it off a 2& 1/2 foot ledge, no damage visible on the outside doesn'the work, openEd it up no damage inside, still doesn't work. I would hate to find that out after a crash. Lol get two and never ride with less then two.

I'll take a more reputable light knowing it's been drop tested.
  • + 1
 @PJD1: I agree. Always ride with two lights. My primary light is a high end Cygolite that I run on my helmet. The RioRand makes a good handlebar light in addition. I've ridden dirt jump lines and bike park DH trails with this set up at night with no issues.

 Props to Ibis for partnering with a company to make "custom" frame bags for their bikes. Being able to have more stuff on the bike and off the rider is a win in my book and to only charge $50, well that's well done.

 Is it just me or does that tolerance seem pretty large considering how thin the material is? It's about a 4.5% variation... Or is that pretty typical for the industry?
