Pinkbike Poll: How Many Derailleurs Have You Actually Destroyed While Riding?
I haven't destroyed a derailleur while riding in a long time but worn a derailleur over a season is not hard, especially the 12s Shimano derailleurs which get loads of play in every joint very quickly.

Intend Release Limited Edition 'Moto' Fork & Shock Set
@hubertje-ryu: The shiver had fixed bushing if I am right, so replacing those would have been the same annoying job as for any other bike fork. Whereas it is as simple as changing your wiper seals on a moto fork.

@jomacba: enduro rider or general punters don't service their bikes nearly as much as you do and is usually more on par with the world, one a year and done. Same for tire. Unless you race and are somewhat competitive in which case I understand but DH riders of equivalent caliber would also do lowers servicing ever other days, change tires lke they change their underwear and so on.

Intend Release Limited Edition 'Moto' Fork & Shock Set
@jomacba: I wouldn't call seal tool a proprietary tool since they can be had anywhere and can be used on any brands as long as they are the same diameter. And to be fair so fair on WPs I never had to even use a seal tool. Like you said, the only thing that is more expensive is the amount of oil they use, especially the open cartridge type. But you can keep them fresh so easily compared to mtb stuff it's not comparable.

Intend Release Limited Edition 'Moto' Fork & Shock Set
Anyone that ever serviced a Mtb fork and did bushings and did the same job on an MX fork can tell that the maintenance is vastly easier on the MX fork. What a lot of BS to keep justifying why the Mtb industry is using an inferior solution.

A Closer Look at Haven Mercer's Mechanical Automatic Transmission Concept
You definitely need a bash guard to ride that thing ! Imagine casing a log or a stone, those amrs would bend like noodles ! Cool concept otherwise, problably more usefull in an urban/commuter usage than mtb though.

KS Release LEV Circuit Wireless Dropper Seat Post
I switched to wireless dropper as I am running a 180mm bike and spend a lot of time at the bike park. That way I put a Thomson seatpost with SDG Fly saddle tilted to ride at the park and DH races, then put the dropper back in when I need to pedal on week day evening rides. My hardtail has a normal dropper and if I still had a DH rig my enduro would also be cable I don't see the point other than what I am doing, which frankly is quite niche I guess.
