Review: The Digit Datum & Its Integrated 'Analog' Suspension
I want this rear-end with the Structure Cycleworks up front. Imagine all the hate for basking in!

First Ride: Marzocchi's New Bomber Air Shock
@skierdud89: Thanks, man. See, that's why I never do for myself what I can ask others to do for me from my keyboard. hehehe How come everybody around here isn't freaking out that the new owners of PB are cutting staff and shuttering properties? Are we all super-confident PB's days aren't also numbered?

First Ride: Marzocchi's New Bomber Air Shock
Has something happened to Beta MTB? They haven't posted anything new since late May. Is it already dying? I know this is totally off-topic, but I can't (in seconds, more than one of them!) find anything about this anywhere. I bet there's a place on the forums to ask something like this, but I'm a middle-aged man. I don't like learning new things! Or looking for things. Or not being an idiot.

Review: RockShox's 2023 Lyrik Ultimate is Smooth, Silent, & Incredibly Comfortable
Dang, that's a smart question. Do the air chambers heat up very much once things start moving? I wonder if the rubber gets warm quickly enough to make that a non-issue? Any engineering types know?

The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly: 10 Editors' Clipless Pedal Setups
@Mtmw: I've tried flats, Shimano, and Crank Bros, but I keep coming back to Times. I really love them. Plus, they aren't the same thing everybody else is running. I'd probably stick with Crank Bros if it weren't for how hitting a rock on the other side of the pedal just right causes an inadvertent release just like you said. Why do I like that not everybody else uses them? Prolly because I'm a douchebag. I mean, I always ride alone, and nobody ever says anything to me about pedals either way, so it shouldn't matter.

First Look: 2022 Antidote Woodsprite
@alis66: Dang it, I was actually sort of hoping you were a jerk. That way I wouldn't have to feel guilty for being such a dick to you. Why did you have to go and ruin it for me? What with your humble attitude and self-deprecating humor, you! Now, once again, I've exposed myself as just the kind of douche who starts unprovoked flame wars in the comments section of cycling websites. I think the industry runs pretty efficiently, all things considered.

@alis66: Are you saying you think an entire industry has somehow hidden its massive profit margins from the public? You're saying we would be paying a fraction of what we do now, as evidenced by how inexpensive motorcycles are relative to high-end MTBs? Nobody in the industry, no hungry up-and-comer willing to make less to grow their market share, no disgruntled former manager, no sharp-eyed journalist, nobody has spilled the beans? We're all paying triple or quadruple what we could be paying because what, Big Bicycle has hijacked the market using the power of being extra-greedy capitalist pigs? You're either under 18 or you've had a stroke/traumatic brain injury recently. Which is it?

The European Bike Project: A Floating Idler Frame & 4 Other Exciting Products from Small European Manufacturers - April 2022
The more different from the mainstream a suspension or drivetrain design seems to me, the more I like it and want it to be successful. I'm just a sucker that way. It's why I wanted a Trust fork, it's why I run the Archer wireless shifting tech, and why the minute the people at Structure Cycleworks offer their creation in 29" wheels I will buy one, sight unseen. I want to believe I'm totally rational and I like what I like because it's better, but from the pattern, it's obvious I just emotionally like weird shit.

The European Bike Project: A Floating Idler Frame & 4 Other Exciting Products from Small European Manufacturers - April 2022
@verytomkelly: My dad was a welder. He never taught me anything about his work, and I was too stupid to ask him to. I do remember how much pride he took in the quality of his welds and how they always passed x-ray inspections. It seems like, as a breed, welders are like that, proud of their skill and what they do. Any time someone on the internet comments on welding, I instinctively respect them, despite not being capable of judging for myself if they know what they are about. Now that I'm in my mid/late 40s, I totally wish I would have at least explored the idea of becoming a welder like my old man. Oh well, maybe I can brow-beat one of my sons into it so I can live through them vicariously.

Holy cow! Why, after reading the words "the idler pulley which is not attached to the front triangle, but to the rocker" did I IMMEDIATELY want one? What's wrong with me?
