Review: SRAM's New HS2 Rotors - Thicker is Better
Hopefully we'll see calipers made with thicker rotors in mind from SRAM (and maybe even Shimano if they go thicker too) in the near future to help with the alignment.

First Ride: 2022 Pivot Firebird - Ready to Fly
@Frank191: unless you're running qr-skewers on your bike, a DH hub will be 157mm wide. Also, pretty much every qr 150mm hub can be fitted with 157x12mm compatible endcaps.

@Super7: Depends on the hub you're getting, most DH hubs have the same width freehub body as regular standard or boost hubs. This is mostly down to the cassettes which are made to fit standard with freehub bodies, even if they are narrower like the sram 7 speed cassettes.

Effective seattube angles are measured at stack height, most people will have their saddle higher up than that. With an offset seattube, using an average saddle height, the "effective" seattube angle actually gets slacker than measured at stack height. Yeah, it's harder to compare, but actually more relevant imo.

Thought Experiment: What Would It Take to Build a Sub-7kg Mountain Bike Using Only Stock Parts?
With about 300g more you can have a 9point8 Fall Line R 100m dropper in there too, no longer sub 7kg but still light as hell.

Review: DT Swiss EX 1700 Spline Wheelset
@JohanG: Same here, Sapim double square nipples are by far my my favorite nipples. The DT Squorx aren't too bad either as long as you don't have to true them with a regular spoke wrench.
