Race Face Announces New Atlas Flat Pedals
@raceface: It's cool to see you acknowledge the problem, but why not recall them? I've had two pairs sitting in a drawer for years because I'm terrified they'd fail whilst riding somewhere that losing a pedal could be deadly (think Portal in Moab).

Orbea Announces Price Increases Due to Supply Chain Issues
Just as long as I don't have to pay the new prices on a bike that was supposed to ship in October. Transition increased their prices months after a bike I ordered was supposed to ship, and they still pushed the new price to me.

2021 Pinkbike Awards: Suspension Product of the Year Winner
If you're having issues with small bump sensitivity on the 2022 version, something is wrong. It's easily the most supple fork I've ever ridden. FYI the air pressure recommendations for this fork are off. I run ~10% over what they recommend, and that's barely enough. If you aren't running enough pressure, that will make the fork feel harsh. As for your weight, though... I personally think you're heavy enough that a stiffer chassis would be worth the little bit of extra weight.

Now Finished: Ask Us Anything with Pinkbike's Tech & News Editors
Should a shock that leaks air can fluid be considered 'normal', or should the manufacturer warranty it? For reference, I mean the air can is dry inside after ~20 hours of riding.

Do bike manufacturers cut steerer tubes too short?

Field Test: 2022 Santa Cruz Blur TR - The Cruz Missile
I'd be interested to hear some opinions on the stiffness of the new 34 SC. I found the new (non-SC) 34 to be a bit flexy at 140mm, but it's spot on at 120mm (for me at 160 lb, at least). How do the two compare?

Field Test Review: 2022 Trek Top Fuel - Same Name, Different Bike
The only issue is that it doesn't feel like a stiff fork because the bushings are so sloppy.

Field Test Review: 2022 Trek Top Fuel - Same Name, Different Bike
@Joecx: It's not a lubrication problem. Mine had bushing play out of the box. The first warranty replacement was lowers only, which still had bushing play. The second warranty replacement was a full new fork because I rode it with sloppy bushings for a few months and destroyed the stanchions. I now joke that the 50 hour 'lowers service' for the SID is a full lowers replacement, and the 100 hour service is a full fork swap. The only perk is that you never have to touch the damper. Oh, if anyone wants a brand new, in-box SID Ultimate, you can find my listing in BuySell.

First Look: Orange Stage 6 Evo
At some point I'd like to try riding an Orange just to see how bad a single pivot really feels compared to all of the fancy suspension designs I've grown familiar with.
