Santa Cruz Bicycles Release 27.5" Reserve Carbon DH Rims
@bengtleon: "What I have paid for with my Reserves is that when a rim eventually goes, I'll likely get a new rim in a day or two" - This is what was expected of SC carbon reserve. Well long story short, it didn't quite work. It took over 10 months to receive a guaranteed item over original broken one. While the marketing talk may work in US, it sure did not in northern part of Europe, 100% of BS it seems. I still like SC brand and will most likely buy their frames in future, but nothing beyond that.

Field Test: 2020 Ibis Mojo HD5 - An Easygoing All-Rounder
@BenPea: maybe that's it - give enduro riders only enduro bikes and XC riders only XC bikes to evaluate, regardless if they ride the full spectrum or not.

That's the most amazing part of the whole video. And the speed he really did that stunt on real time!

First Ride: The 2020 Demo 29 - Specialized's New Aluminum DH Race Machine
@ratedgg13: I'm too 5'10 and have ridden 2016 mondraker dune size L for 2,5 seasons with reach 493. Have -2º angleset installed. For this season I increased stem length from 40 to 50mm to get more weight on front wheel and to get more stability, different offset might have worked too, but that's far more expensive route. The more speed the better the bike feels. In steep switchbacks the bike is tough to maneuver, but this is probably because of skills and not the bike. As second, Bronson CC 2016 XL feels much better sized for trails. I'm less than average height, but would definately pick extra long sized demo.

Vitus Announces 2019 Dominer DH Bike
Below might sound like marketing BS, but it isn't, thought I'd give a voice for a budget bike. I ride a lot (>6h every week), XC, enduro and DH. Have ridden 10 years and competed for 5, locals and abroad. Riding Dominer is simply fun. Price was reasonable and thus expected less. Build quality seems really good overall. It may not be the 0.1% fastest sled, but the thing just _feels_ to work. Every time I gear up and choose DH instead of enduro bike, I end up smiling a lot while riding. Had big name bikes like Summum and Glory, but they got replaced for whatever reason, they just didn't click. Built Vitus Dominer '18 about 18 months ago and it's the first bike I plan to keep longer than 2 seasons.

Tech Tips: How to Keep Your Suspension Moving in the Winter
@Crisskan: I've filled the Charger cartridge in my Boxxer and Pike with "Redline, like water", this should be 2-3 times more viscous in freezing temperatures than the original 3wt Rockshox (originally Maxima) Fork oil based on numbers from Peter Verdones list of oil viscosities. Lubrication oil has much bigger impact, so I'd suggest you try that first. 1/3 parts 0w-30 and 2/3 parts 2.5wt Rockshox Fork oil to be on safe side.Though all very viscous fully synthetic motor/gear oils should work as well.
