First Look: ShockTune is a Free Suspension Setup App
Nope. There are people out there, who can't feel it but want to be faster in a race. And this could help them. Not everyone is trained to feel one or two clics of dials on their suspension. Although the results can be clear on the clock (even pros run timed laps and record their setups rather than just go with what feels the best for them). But the number of combinations of suspension setups is almost infinite (to test them all, so something that gives you a hint like this might be very helpful.

Bikepacking Check Out: Bags Edition
I have done some extreme MTB unsupported long distance races and trust me, if you want to ride hard it's not good to have a large saddle pack. I personally hate large saddle packs for this purpose, not only that they can often rub your tyre on compressions but also you can't go behind the saddle (which is an pretty awful feeling) and also they tend to swivel all over the place. Basically they ruin your ride. I much prefer to have a bar pack, in frame pack a small seat bag and a backpack (it gives you back protection and removes weight from the bike which I personally like). These under large saddle paniers have use on road or verry light XC if you don't want to ride with a backack.

Review: HED's Raptor 29 XC Carbon Wheelset
@clink83: I've been riding on other carbon wheels (not on the same bike)...and yes there is a difference in stiffnes, but I really enjoy the handling of Crests. Maybe even less radiall stiffnes might not always be a bad thing.

Specialized Diverge EVO: Gravel Shredder, High-End Hybrid, or Just a Rigid Mountain Bike?
@seraph: Yeah, you are right. It is an exaggeration...should have been more like "1990 looks". But anyway, I bet you I could keep up with this thing on my 90s 3x8 rim brake commuter.

Review: HED's Raptor 29 XC Carbon Wheelset
Funny I've got the same weight with my Stan's ztr crest+novatec hub (7 years old). At a fraction of the price. I ride pretty harsh on them and I have had a few dent's here and there on the rear wheel (nothing that would stop me from riding though...replacements cost me less than 100USD...curently on my third rear rim). I can't comment on the stiffness....but I don't see much reasons to go carbon if there is no or verry little weight advantage. If it would weigh 1200g like the kovee, than ok.

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Drive to Your Local Trails?
@robwhynot: well it's certainly greener than many, many other sports. Espacially all indoor sports, where you need to build the facilities. Even most outdoor sports tend to use up much more land. If you don't buy 10 bikes every year, mtb is a green sport.

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Drive to Your Local Trails?
Absolutley. Also, at least here in Czech Rep. you very often don't need to ride on a road to get to the trailhead. There are so many fireroads and pedestrian paths that you can often ride that, if you don't like driving or riding in asphalt.

Check Out: A Swiss Dropper Post, Italian Protection, Saddles, UK Components & More
Hey guys, my seatpost is cable actuated. Is it also possible to bleed it? Or are there any components I could upgrade, so I can bleed my cables without having to go full hydraulic? I have read in another forum that the faster you go, the more you should bleed so I am trying to fugure it out.

Video: How to Wheelie With Martha Gill & Bex Baraona
It's weired. I can ride a unicycle for miles and miles (I started in my mid twenties and it took me about an hour to do my first 100m). But I have been trying to wheelie since I was a kid and have never been able to wheelie longer then a few seconds - the longest i have ever done would be like 20m I usually do about 10-15m . And even less for a free coasting manual.
