The Commencal Furious is Here
@whitebullit: Dude the Furious isn't replacing the Supreme. It's designed to be fun, whereas the Supreme's designed to be fast. Thirion rides the Supreme because it's faster. Note the entire video was comprised of freeride and bike park footage, and didn't feature Thirion or Brannigan.

Spot's New 29er Has a Carbon Fiber Leaf Spring – Sea Otter 2017
@WAKIdesigns: Waki, your flaccid member and breakaway friction have nothing to do with small bump compliance. The leaf spring increases the spring rate in the mid stroke, boosting mid stroke support. Coupled with a progressive overall rate to prevent harsh bottoming, this permits a lower shock pressure, increasing small bump compliance.

$1900 buys quite a lot of alloy rims and j-bend spokes.

Devinci's 30th Anniversary YYZ Bike
Pros: they solve clearance issues around the bottom bracket by making it easier to fit the driveside stay past the chainrings. This is particularly handy when the stays are really short or the tires are really wide, which is why they were resurrected for the Yeti 650b-plus bike. They also helped a lot when triple-ring setups were the norm, since it was harder to fit the stays past all three rings. Cons: they constrain the range of options for designing linkages on duallies, particularly by making it hard to keep the lower pivot close to the BB. This is less of an issue on single-pivot bikes, which is why Orange uses them. They also tend to create a lot of chain slap, as the chain acts like a trampoline and shoots up towards the nearby underside of the stay, although this is also less of an issue now that clutch-equipped derailleurs are a thing. Overall, they're suboptimal for multi-pivot duallies, but fine for a hardtail.

Box Components' New Carbon Wheelset - Taipei Cycle Show
Dentist wheels. If I wanted to ram plastic into rocks, I'd give my credit card to Charlie Sheen.

Is Innova's ITT System The Next Step For Tubeless Tires? - Taipei Cycle Show
All the puncture protection of a tube, with all the replacability of a tire. Awesome.

Gradual transition of sealant from useful substance to pointless rotating unsprung mass? Nothing else, really.

Commencal Announces New Furious DH Bike
I had the same rims (I think, same ID) on my Commencal Meta AM. They're not bad, certainly rideable, but I eventually tacoed the front in a crash. I replaced both rims with DTSwiss FR570s, and holding the rims in your hands, you could certainly feel the stiffness difference between the undamaged rear rim and the new FR570. Commencal is great, though, so get one anyway.
