Crash Tested: iXS Trigger Knee Guards
All my ixs stuff falls apart... For instance will the pad insert crumble in the wash like my original ixs flow pads?

The Explainer: What's the Deal with Linkage Forks?
A bit of misinformation at 4:00 mark. Spring's job is to support weight, not absorb bumps. An ideal spring will never stop bouncing. It's the damper that absorb's the bumps.

Video: Syndicate Pit Gibberish - Why Would You Run a Smaller Rear Rotor?
Agreed. Two factors on rotor size are braking force and heat dissipation. Braking force requirement on the front is way higher than the rear due to the weight transfer (CG height / wheelbase). However, people tend the drag the rear brake 3x longer than the front so it generates about as much heat or more. Therefore you end up with about the same size rotors.

@lRaphl: Actually it’s tabernacle which is a reference to the church as are most French Canadian swears. Ironically they are arguably the least religious culture in North America. I definitely enjoyed growing up in Montreal some of the most fun people you’ll ever meet with no f-ucks given.

Exploring the Relationship Between Handlebar vs Stem Length
@Legbacon: agree on wider bars for control, but longer reach is not a result of wider bars. You would want to shorten the reach with wider bars. I think longer reach is the result of longer wheelbase with shorter chainstays increasing the distance between the seat and handlebars. This is why seats are getting steeper now designers are trying to position the rider forward again. Feel like bikes in the last 5 years have totally ignored F/R rider balance.
