Photo Epic: EWS Ainsa 2018 - Day One
Can confirm, Cunningham's rim is easy to dent. Have a pile in my basement.

GPS Gadgets, French Toast Gel, and Hope's Enduro Bike - Interbike 2018
What's old is new again! Purple Ano FTW! I gave my brother a purple Control Tech bottle of cage in the day, he gave me a purple Paul's seat collar. I have the raddest red Moby post from 199? on my old Panasonic road bike. It came off my Caloi rigid aluminum bike with a Kenesis fork. The matte black kraze is overrated. Gimme color on my bikes.

Video: Specialized's New Turbo Levo Ad is 'Mind Blowing'
I want to know what the average cycle life of a Levo battery is and what the cost is to replace... Think an Eagle cassette is pricey, wait until your LBS says your battery fails a capacity test and they want $1200 to replace. If you're lucky and get 1000 charge cycles, every two years you'll be facing a pack replacement. I hope their BMS is pretty hardy and saves their battery from over discharge.

Ask Pinkbike: Multi-Tools, Suspension Suggestions & Cutting Carbon Bars
I cut my 800mm Bontrager Line (aluminum) 35 to 780 and then to 765, I never rode it at 800mm but at 765 it's incredibly stiff, probably too much. I'm a 100kg and always felt that my 31.8 bars flexed a bit too much, now with these bars I'm wishing I had some of that flex back. I'm thinking about trying the carbon version, but may just get a good quality 31.8 aluminum bar.

Ask Pinkbike: Multi-Tools, Suspension Suggestions & Cutting Carbon Bars
@olslash: truth. My Ribbon air is a great riding, stiff, well damped fork. The Volume adjustment works exactly as advertised, and the negative chamber allows it to sit well into sag without being too plush or too bottom out happy. But that damper is loud! The first time I rode it I took off to my local jump line and rolled and "slurp, whoosh!" The first time I rode with friends my buddy asked what ramp control did and I told him it effectively changed the volume, he then asked me to turn it down.

There's a New Aluminum Version of the Trek Slash
Our shop doesn't push the mopeds. We have a couple, but for every ebike we sell we sell 30-40 Verves/FX bikes.

Pinkbike Poll: What's the Most You'd Spend on a Mountain Bike?
I work at my LBS, owner gives me cost discount and I get the manufacturers employee purchase deals through every available option. I started out working Sunday and Thursday afternoon, 8.5 hrs a week. I get to fix bikes and help with the slow renovation of the shop, plus every once and awhile I find out that I changed someone's life by (re)introducing them to cycling. So, I can buy the best bike I can chisle out of my employee deals, that means I have access to ride some pretty decent stuff. I have a Chromag Rootdown BA with XT and a MRP Ribbon, a Trek Boone disc with full Ultegra and some homemade wheels and an old MUSA steel Trek 730 that I've modified/modernized a bit by adding disc brakes and converting the fork to threadless. I guess I could have a bunch of fancy carbon stuff, but I like to have unique things. Plus the Chromag was my first new MTB in five years and the Boone was a warranty replacement so it was a good deal.

Review: Fox Ascent Gloves
I've had very good luck with my last two Fox glove purchases. I have been riding with Fox Attack gloves for the last two seasons and haven't had any failures or issues. They're very minimalist, and don't seem to wear out too fast. I use them not only for MTB but also for my daily commute and they've held up great. I also have the Fox Attack Water gloves, which don't have too many miles on them but work well in the inclimate weather and down to about 0c.

Pro Announces Internally Routed 170mm Koryak Dropper Post
My dropper puts my saddle plenty low enough, any lower and it would contact my rear tire. Plus it takes about .5sec to drop it and about the same to raise it, which is something I can do repeatedly as I ride the trails. For example, today I did a 20mi trail ride, and I probably lowered and raised my dropper about 150 times. I did a pretty epic day at Dupont State Forest last year and probably had my dropper up and down 250-300 times. Until you ride with one, you're just speaking from a place of no experience.

Pro Announces Internally Routed 170mm Koryak Dropper Post
My Trek Boone uses that style of clamp, the infinite adjustability is... Good I guess, but if you don't torque it to 14Nm it'll rotate, and even torqued to spec my saddle creeps back slowly with time. Next time I need to readjust the saddle position, I'm going to put some valve grinding compound on the Ti rails to hopefully add some traction to the clamp. I've tried carbon paste but it doesn't seem to hold well enough (the past helps with the rotation issue just not the saddle sliding)
