Review: 2020 Mondraker SuperFoxy RR
9point8 has a fwd offset dropper. It only goes to 150mm drop though Ergon enduro saddle has extra long rails. I am running one on a fairly slack sta bike, and I definitely appreciate the adjustment . I have also think it would be fairly easy to make an offset clamp system for certain droppers. Started designing one a few months back, but I never finished.

First Ride: RockShox's New Zeb Fork
@PHeller: I emailed Manitou about that, and they said nothing had changed. But I read that too.

First Ride: RockShox's New Zeb Fork
@MikerJ: this was a concern of mine too. Manitou has corrected the earlier issues in the latest batch. Older forks were QA/QC'd as well (got mine in May and it was a 8/2019 build that had been checked out). Hard to find them in stock these days though!

First Ride: RockShox's New Zeb Fork
I am currently riding a 29er Mezzer at 160mm and also have a bike with a 2019 Lyrik at 180mm with the Push HC97 and the DSD Runt (second air chamber - similar concept to the IRT). Where the modified Lyrik is "better" - parking lot feel and some small bump compliance at low to moderate speeds. Mezzer is more composed at speed, tracks better, handles chunk better. The bottom out with HBO is awesome as well. I love that I can adjust the travel easily as well. I bet 170 or 180 would put the small bump on par with the Lyrik as well. Oh and it's ~ 2030grams after cutting the steerer for an XL bike.

Pinkbike Poll: Are Your Local Trails Challenging Enough?
Seriously. Everything fun for the intermediate or advanced rider is unsanctioned. The local groups do their best, but it's generally a compromise with various user groups and land owners.

Review: Vittoria's New Mazza Tire
@Snowrydr01: Got them in there! I am actually on Spesh right now as well. Pleasantly surprised by the Butcher (2.3) and eliminator in grid trail. Other than sidewall sealant leakage..

The SL is super smooth, and you don't really feel anything at the 20mph (15mph for Euro/UK I think) cutoff. Other ebikes, it's more like hitting a wall, or at least more noticeable. It's not an active "braking" though. Just a higher resistance feeling

I love mine. It’s the future (now?). Only reason to have a normal bike is for trails that don’t allow IMO. You can run with the battery off and it’s rides like a heavier trail bike. Remove the internal battery and the weight is right there.

Bike Check: Taj Mihelich's Chromag Stylus
Curious about that Wolftooth headset.. Looks like it may work with integrated headsets (Specialized)?
