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.

Deviate Cycles - Press Release
Video is no good for general marketing, unless your only target customer base is XC riders, for which this bike seem overkill. It's good to show all sort of riders and terrains, but shooting someone with stiff neck riding brakes half way down on smooth terrain did not really appeal to me, quite vice versa. I would have liked to also (-this is important) see someone close to pro riding steep, technical and then fast rough terrain. Video gave me the impression that the rear end is not active at all and it looked as if there was 80 mm of travel. It also gave me the impression, that this bike is not made to last. I don't know why. Not a rant or troll but honest opinion. Low slung center of mass and low profile rear triangle make it look interesting, even if form does not follow function. I do like the idea of gearbox enduro bike without any extra hassle.

Mondraker Dune - Review
@cnick: I noticed on mine, that the pearl/ball locking at top of axle bolts did not have enough tolerances to actually lock the axle in place. Some sanding for the tapered part fixed this. Try removing and re-installing dropouts, it's what fixed mine. I noticed this after I had done complete bearing change and the creaking sound didn't change at all.

Mondraker Dune - Review
I'd say it's not linear nor is it very progressive. About the same as trek slash 27,5 by the feel of it. Three volume spacers won't do too much if you look at the percentages,see http://p.vitalmtb.com/photos/users/109/slideshows/9020/photos/18349/s1200_slideshow_photo_1434511038.jpg Spring rate will not scale over big hits, so intead of adding volume spacers, try increasing compression damping a notch. For monarch, it means moar shims or thicker oil.
