Tech Week 2023: 6 New Rain Jackets to Keep You Dry
This is why leatt shells are great. Not the fabric- they have the clip so you can fully unzip it and it'll hold the two sides together so it isn't a flapping cape. Closest thing to breathable on the climbs. Otherwise it's a garbage bag like the rest (albeit with a couple other cool MTB specific features).

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 148 - How NOT to Sell Your Bike on the PB BuySell
You mentioned an offer system in the podcast, and I'll just say that as a seller that first offer message means something. Short, lazy offer messages tell me to ignore this person unless I'm desperate to sell, even if they're making a good, reasonable offer. If I accept their offer initially with the new tool, I lose this shithead filter.

Review: Wolf Tooth Components Resolve Dropper Post
I would've agreed with this whole heartedly had I not gotten used to a bike yoke. It's now on my hardtail, and when I use it after spending time on my bike with the OneUp, it's an absolute dream of a dropper and you do notice it. Such light trigger action, butter smooth, very stiff, wonderful thunk when it tops out. OneUp is plenty fine and I'll use it for the 240mm, but if there's ever a 240+ revive, I'll think about it, despite the $$$. They last forever too and can switch between 30.9 and 31.6 lower tubes. OneUp just feels lethargic, stickier trigger feel, and less robust in comparison. But like you said, it does what it needs to. My advice: never use a bike yoke (and maybe same goes for this wolf tooth). Ignorance is bliss on this.

First Look: Ibis Oso - Not Just an Electric Ripmo
My XXL spire has a bit longer wheelbase. It's worth it for the handful of tight things that require extra body English. So good at speed. Also I'm 6'6". Happy to see this even tho I have no interest in eMTB.

bc original Podsol – The Trail Hardtail for Everybody
Weird there's no comments on this old article. After switching back to my hardtail after a season of long and slack full squish I'm shopping for a new (longer and slacker and long chainsaw) hardtail frame... This frame is absolutely spot on, and the price is oh so right. Why no pinkers chimed in is surprising to me. Modern Geo affordable hardtail? Gotta wait until they restock but I'm buying.

Opinion: The Pace of Change in the MTB World is Slowing Down, and I'm All For It
@jmhills: as someone pointed out above, Ripmo AF is 25 percent off right now, back down below what they were pre pandemic. While you're right to an extent, supply and demand are the ultimate driver of prices. The price hikes we saw probably had a lot to do with temporary shipping and manufacturing cost increases due to limited supply of those things.

Assuming each attempt of the Snotch was about 100' long, 800 attempts is over 15 miles... of Snotch climbing.
