If You Use Tubes, Tannus' Tire Insert Might Be For You - Taipei Cycle Show 2018
Looks like a great solution for townie bikes prone to punctures from thorns and the like. Reminds me of Schwalble's marathon tires.

Review: PNW Components Loam Lever
@Steele501: a company called bike yoke makes a replacement for the hydraulic reverb line, turning the post into a cable actuated system. If I EVER owned a reverb I would certainly replace the easily damaged line.

Tire Makers Co-Develop an Inflatable Bladder System to Prevent Flat Tires
@fartymarty: I love that rim for 29+! Double wall on the bead, single wall in the middle. A few other tricks are to remove the valve core to get more air in quickly, and I've used a strap system to push down on the middle of tread, which expands the tire bead outwards. Sometimes it seats up right away, not always though.. I'm also really loving the Terravail Kennebec 29×2.6 tire. Beefy knobs and a strong sidewall.

Tire Makers Co-Develop an Inflatable Bladder System to Prevent Flat Tires
@fartymarty: wide rims like the Rabbit Hole can be tricky to seat tubeless, so I started mounting a 1" wide, 1/2" thick strip of packing foam in the center of rim over the rim strip creating 2 channels instead of 1, similar to the stans Hugo rim. I also love "gangsta" tubeless setup where you fold the flap back onto the rim giving you 2 layers of rubber protection from bead cuts. Kind of a PITA to set up, but worth it!

Bike Check: The Privateer is Going to Finale on a New Bike
@casman86: The twin lock really is a "genius" addition to a dually. In the mid firm mode, not only does the travel shorten, it also really firms up the shocks to pedal like an XC rig instead of a fluffy marshmallow.

Made of plastic. Worked great untill a friend borrowed my bike and I noticed a crack in the parralelogram, (a metal part broke, not the plastic.) Still got 5 more rides even with it injured. I give it a good review if you are a smooth rider that knows how to keep from bashing parts on rocks.
