Video: Marshy Attempts to Teach Greg Minnaar How to Bleed Brakes
When I bought my first SLX from a friend he said "keep them topped up" so I did. Doing this and never really having to bleed is the truth. I bleed once a year just for the hell of it. Bubble bleed a few times during each set of pads' lifetime keeps them feeling nice, and I think they feel better if you finish with the free stroke all the way out, close everything off, then wind it all the way in as the final step. A reverb syringe works fine instead of the bucket. Never experienced the wandering bite point which Pinkbike reviewers like to whine about, over four sets of Shimano brakes.

Pinkbike Poll: If Every Ride Was Solo, Would You Still Mountain Bike?
Some people like riding solo. Some people like riding in groups. Don't be a dick because some people don't like doing things the same way you do.

Video: 7 New Mountain Bike Tires - Pond Beaver 2020
The Wild Enduro Rear's side knobs are pathetic but Wild Enduro Front/Wild Rock'R2 have been solid for me (front/rear). Planning on trying a pair of Fronts next (worn one on the rear, fresh one on the front). The DH34 Bike Park looks a good option for the rear but midweight casings with CushCore is enough for me.

First Look: Pipedream Cycles Adds a Bit of Bounce to the Moxie - Pond Beaver 2020
@ledude: "Do the trig to normalize the stack the across bikes" Good point. For those interested, you get about 5mm reduced effective reach for every 10mm of spacers added on a 64 degree head angle frame. So if this bike had a 30mm extra spacers or a 140mm headtube (632mm effective stack) then the effective reach would be about 495mm.

Made for short people who want to hop on the long bike trend. Not for tall people who need long bikes. It'll sell.

Interview: Loic Bruni - 'The Future is So Blurry & Unpredictable That I Do Not Really Know What to Do'
"The plan is to respect the confinement as much as possible". Respect it entirely, like the rest of us.

Review: Race Face Next SL G5 Carbon Cranks
I've had Next SL, Next SL G4 and now Next R over the past 5 years. Pedal inserts have been always been fine but the left crank arm developed some play on the first two pairs - Next SL after two years and G4 after one year. Race Face's French distributor's service has been excellent including the second set out of warranty and a bump up to the Next R offered by them before I even asked for it. I did all communication with the distributor myself but had to do the shipping both ways through a local shop. I kept the original metal preload ring from the Next SL - don't like the idea of the plastic one they have now. 80kg rider, on mostly rough natural alpine terrain and some park. Would buy XTRs if I was paying my own money for something new next time but for now I'm not concerned about the Next R. Race Face's BSA30 bottom bracket is fine; change the bearings yourself (for me about once a year which is similar to what I used to get from cheap Shimano BBs), would do the same again rather than Hope/etc.
