4 Suspension Forks You've Probably Never Seen - Taipei Cycle Show 2018
That's brand dilution for you. Lots of people don't want the same name on their lowers as on a Costco bike, price and quality be damned. I often wonder why they don't have a separate brand for their high-end stuff. They certainly have the money to put some advertising weight behind establishing one. @SRSuntour?

I hope you realize you're making thousands of people on the internet feel the urge to find you and come to your house and fix your stem.

Review: PNW Components Loam Lever
I have the Southpaw with my KS - not recommended. Loose action, rattly. An improvement over the original vertical KS levers but not much else. I recommend some other lever.

Ask Pinkbike: Tire Pressure, Hip Packs, Dehydration, and 'Le Systeme'
@Trevorjones109: Medical supplies - ironic. Sorry to hear about that, dude, and I wish you a speedy and complete recovery. I use the Dakine too. I'll try to stay rubber side up myself.

@ryanbpoquette: Not worried about the squeezable part - more about the lid, which is a hard disc and quite stiff in the plane perpendicular to the vertebrae. Again, it isn't relevant to me personally - I was just curious about other people's experiences.

+1. The only thing I don't like is that the bladder isn't unzippable like other Hydrapak models are, so it doesn't turn inside out and dry as easily - but it's still doable. It bounces, but in a rolling manner that isn't noticeable even when fully loaded.

And you can piss it all out as ballast if you're about to case a jump?

"the water bottle holder is where it should be, in the center, rather than off to one side" I ride with a bladdered hip pack, so my opinion might not matter, but putting the bottle in the middle has always scared me a little - potential spine injury if you fall on it, or something like that. Can anyone credible confirm (or deny) that this is cause for concern?

Allite's New Super Magnesium Alloy is Lighter Than Aluminum, Less Expensive Than Carbon - Interbike 2018
Exactly. I very much support research into new frame materials, but this display made me laugh. I'd love to add a puck of my own - "aluminum foil-wrapped styrofoam, 20g". The clear winner!

Wait, what? I thought brass was harder than aluminum.
