Jeff Steber Returns as Intense CEO [Updated]
@jaame: you are very right. No friend of carbon myself, after losing 2 frames to rather unspectacular mishaps, but my last expensive experiment in aluminium failed because of aluminium frames having said propertys. A banshee spitfire which ate faster through a set of bearings than you can imagine and suffered a cracked main triangle due to poor heat dispersion during welding. Considering the weight of a few contemporary carbon and aluminium frames, i plan on building a steel frame with competitive weight and hopefully the longest lifetime yet.. in CAD it looks pretty reasonable weight wise.

OWN FR-01 Flat Pedal Shoe – Review
I absolutely love the idea, but after almost losing my pinky to a rock in Finale wearing 5.10 dirtbags a few weeks ago i am wondering wether the outer shoe is protective enough. The price argument is not really an issue, i think 5.10s quality is a lot worse per € and you´ll spend an equal amount of money for any approach shoe, which can be similar construction wise.

Orange Bikes Launches Two New 29ers
Never would have guessed there are so many single pivot advocats around... Rode my 2013 Patriot today and just had blast in the slickest conditions all year, the longest 2wheel drifts i´ve ever done and bouncing and popping from berm to berm. I am just amazed how an 180mm bike can be more rewarding to ride in an active manner, than the 140/160 trail bike i had before

Orange Bikes Launches Two New 29ers
If you take all parameters that make a full suspension mountainbike into account, you will see theres much to love about this simple design. Very constant antisquat makes for a very predictable reaction to pedal input...even antirise has its benefits when it comes to riding extremely steep terrain as it helps the bike to preserve its geometry. I recently switched from a KS-Link bike to an orange and it suits my style better and is still more than capable enough to plow through serious stuff (which is usually not the most demanding part)

Production Privée's Steel Full Suspension Frame: The Shan Nº5
Checked out Portus and found this: http://www.portus-cycles.de/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/portus_pbe2016-2-e1483884093308.jpg 3,2 kg frame weight which is in the ballpark of my recently deceased Banshee but i bet its going to last a lot longer...

Production Privée's Steel Full Suspension Frame: The Shan Nº5
Looks an awfull lot like the community bikes second iteration https://alutech-cycles.com/ICB20 a (very) german forums idea of the ideal trail bike i should add that with my recent experience with aluminium frames i am more interested in a steel fs-frame than ever...

The Tuesday Tune Ep 11: Adjusting Spring Rate vs Compression Damping
@VorsprungSuspension: if i understand correctly it is possible to use rebound damping to settle down the ride height when going fast. If i increase mid to highspeed rebound damping, i could leave my low speed rebound lively and have a bike that is poppy, lively when going slow for technical riding and settles down for high speeds? By the way i would love to see a corset air can for manitous mcleod. Its hydraulics seem to be working really nice and are easily tuneable by everyone who really tries, but it´s let down by its air can design having no auto balance ports and a small negative air chamber. Should make one of the cheapest shocks one of the best (in my opinion anyways)

Chris Akrigg's As It Lies - Video
@sellcrackcocainetofundhobby: this is actually a nice and important addition to your first comment. In this age of re emerging nationalism everywhere, it is important to remember there is nothing to be proud of you didn´t achieve.
