First Look: 2023 Commencal T.E.M.P.O. - A New Short Travel Trail Bike
I'm very tempted to buy a frame and do my own non-headset cable & hose routing. I like pretty much everything else about this bike.

Field Test: Ibis Exie - Ready for Your Next XC Race
@Chondog94: Oh, please - you really think they need to charge $10k for a middle-spec bike to pay those nice people a living wage?? Only the frame is made in USA. All the other parts are made in Asia. Maybe Ibis frame-makers get paid $200 per hour?

Tech Tuesday: Volume Spacers and Spring Curves
@justinfoil: Adjusting off-the-top, early stroke, and feel by removing all the air, the top cap and then trying more or less tokens are exactly what I meant. Versus adding or removing a little air from top or bottom with dual air.

Tech Week 2023: 6 New Rain Jackets to Keep You Dry
Same applies to ski gear as bike gear - buy last year's model or the year before. Buy lightly used from people who skied 3 days per year. Plus the boom-bust cycles of snow/no snow make even more people just bail and sell their gear. I just bought last year's $1000 skis for $350.

100% this. I really miss my Rockshox Reba dual air forks - I had 3 different versions. I could always dial those things in precisely, way better than I can with spacers in my two current Fox forks.

Thanks for letting me know. I'm currently shopping for a new road helmet, so that was the one article here in which I had any interest. But it's behind the paywall. Good to know that I missed nothing.

Mountain Bikes Don’t Need to Be Complicated: 5 Places Where Less is More
100% this for me as well. I really tried to like various single pivot bikes, but the shock tuning is way too fussy vs. a multi-link suspension. DW and Maestro work perfectly for me and I'll never go back to a single pivot. I might also argue that multi-links like DW and Maestro are "simpler" because the rear triangle is all one piece - no little bearings or bushings on the stays, no flexing required.
