Vorsprung Luftkappe - Review
@themanro: Burping has nothing to do with the negative air chamber. The negative air chamber is inside of the stanchion between the seal head and the piston, it is not in the lowers. Burping removes air from the lowers, which has nothing to do with the negative airspring.

The Mountain Bike Tourist - Brevard, North Carolina
@SangamonTaylor: I bet you can't name a single other trail in Pisgah that has been, as you call it, "IMBA-fied". Of the hundred or more miles of trail in Pisgah, you choose to name the two miles that were rebuilt to be a bit flowier. If anything, Pisgah gets more raw and technical every time it rains. I also ride all hours of the day in both Pisgah and DuPont and rarely encounter so much traffic it's a problem. In fact, I can't think of a single instance where I was on a trail and thought it was too busy. The parking lot maybe.

Beech Mountain Pro GRT Course Preview
Beech hosts a number of other summertime activities including frisbee golf. It's a mixed crowd and not just a bike park, so you have to be on your toes a bit because they don't always know the areas to keep clear. They were in line for the lift and probably didn't realize the trail came out there. TBH I see people almost run over standing in line for the lift every time I ride Beech.

Southern Drift: A MTB Tour Down South
Yes, that is correct as of August 1st 2016. It's no longer seasonal for mountain biking, Cat Gap and North Slope remain seasonal though. Source: http://www.pisgahareasorba.org/2016/07/new-adopt-a-trail-program-is-taking-on-bennett-gap-trail-with-the-hub/

Bennett Gap is no longer seasonal. It was opened up year round for mountain biking a few months ago.

East Bound and Down: Chattanooga, Tennessee
FYI the trailhead at TTC is currently closed due to the land being purchased by another owner that doesn't want bikes on the property. This is as of a week or two ago, so you have to hike up the trails to ride there for the time being, I know they are working on forging a relationship with the new owner and trying to get permission to re-open the trailhead. This can be confirmed/status checked on the TTC FB page.

Chris King / Derby AM 32h 27.5 carbon wheelset

$1000 USD
In good condition, a few scratches here and there consistent with normal riding, but no major gouges. I tried to capture all of the scratches in the photos, although there may be a few other small ones not visible. Nothing that should compromise the integrity of the wheelset. They spin true and have no functionality concerns. Purchased from wheelbuilder.com in early 2016. They are taped and include the valves. Front hub is a Chris King LD 100x15 and the rear is 142x12 with a Shimano driver. Both hubs are turquoise in color, the Derby logos are light blue. Pictured cassette and rotors not included, but can be available. Tires not available or included.

Zep's How-To Mythbusters – Leaning into Corners
I think you and I are in opposite situations. I can handle the smaller ones in techy sections reasonably well, but I am just not good at the larger ones and haven't developed the confidence for them yet. One of the things that helped me get the smaller ones in technical sections down was the Fluidride Like A Pro DVD, you can find it on Amazon as either a DVD or digital copy. He covers this subject really well IMO and breaks from the normal "you need to manual" technique that a lot of people preach (that certainly is a technique, but it doesn't work in every situation). The technique he teaches for this is to lower your chest as you approach the drop and come forward slightly, then either let the bike roll away or reach for the landing (depending on your speed and the size of the drop). If you have a good starting body position, you'll find that by the time your front and back wheel land, you'll be back to center and ready for the next one. Riding in some places, hucking it off every drop just isn't going to work, because by the time you land, you've already started down the next one. I'm no expert by any means, but the prior has worked well for me so far. Something else you can do is watch some side YT videos (Jeff Lenosky's are good) and slow them down, then analyze everything the rider does and compare it to what you are doing. I've found most people are not very good at articulating what they actually do when they ride and it's easier to watch what they do rather than what they say (with a few exceptions, the author of this article being one). That's helped me a bit with some techniques, as well. All that said, I'd really love to see @zeptechniques go into more detail on this and get his take.
