Spengle's One-Piece Carbon Enduro Wheels - First Look
What? That sounds like a playground rumor lol. Spinergy was a safety hazard because they spontaneously failed on numerous occasions and caused quite a few gruesome injuries. Due to poor manufacturing & design choices they caused accidents on wheels that were high km everyday wheels, to low km strictly race wheels. I'm glad that the mtb industry as a whole is seeing more variety and options for the consumer, but when I read this I couldn't help but feel like this was a wheel no one was asking for. Not to mention that it felt forced through the HEAVY use of marketing jargon. The Spinergy company is still alive and they offer wheels for the various types of riding, and even wheelchairs. Instead of continuing the usage of carbon fiber spoked wheels, they have moved to the traditional multi-spoke design. If that doesn't say something then I don't know what does lol.

Raaw Madonna - Press Release and Interview
@jclnv: I feel like this is the correct answer. I'm going to guess that the US has waaay less cycling-friendly cities than Europe does. Combine that with the fact that a considerable percent of the US population is obese, AND there seems to be an irrational hate towards cyclist in all of North America. There doesn't appear to be a lot of motivation for Americans to go out an purchase a bike. Also doesn't it cost a lot of money to drive cars in some European countries (someone help me out on this), giving them more reason to ride a bike? As for the bike, I would totally buy one. The devil is in the detail on this rig it seems. Very large bearing on all the pivots (the main ones are MASSIVE), and on both ends of the shock (!). They also look very well sealed (only time will tell tho). I'm not really sure what kind of image of the bike he was going for by naming it Madonna. With how modern the bike is I personally think it's better off with a name like Kylie or Taylor ;) .

New Suspension Goodies from DVO, ND Tuned and MRC Trading - Eurobike 2017 If you can operate cable ties then installation should be E Z P Z. It's interesting to see that they mention putting a thermal compound between the heatsink and shock. Of course that's just another grease to get contaminated and/or washed out, but it's pretty neat-o! Something like Arctic MX-4 should work fine.

Greg Minnaar's Broken Santa Cruz V10 - Val di Sole DH World Cup 2017
You forgot to make fun of dentists being able to afford carbon fiber. I'd just like to point out that anyone who does this looks incredibly stupid.

Shimano Announces 4-Piston XT Brake Caliper
Personally I've never found Shimano's naming scheme to be confusing. And to be honest what you're suggesting just sounds like more SKUs for them to not have in stock :\

Here before someone has a stroke over it looking similar to a Guide brake lever. Also I hope it uses mineral oil.

Opinion: A Cry for Help
@gbeaks33: Try it again. I used to be like you and pump it to 30psi and call it a day. There are a lot of variables in the system but when you experiment for a while you find that perfect psi that works for you. At 30psi my rear end felt really chattery and didn't want to track the ground due to the tire acting kind of like a spring. After a bit of experimenting I found that right at 26psi my tire acted sooo much better. Instead of it wanting to bounce away from any impact (rocks, roots), it more absorbed them and gripped much harder. You don't have to start off at a low psi, just start at your regular psi and ride the same trails you normally do. Then the next couple times you go riding start with 1 or 2psi lower than usual. Large volume tires will be more sensitive to psi change than a lower volume tire. You can get better grip and have sidewall support+flat protection, you just have to play around with it for a while.
