Ninja Mount Launches a GoPro Mount for your Instagram Stories
@theoskar57: Sold! And of course it comes with the nuts included and free shipping, like on Aliexpress?

What about the nuts, the tooling for the 2 grams of plastic, sourcing, logistics, customs and taxes, etc.? You would probably get it for 2 usd on aliexpress but that doesn't say a lot.

Once again a sensible, correct comment downvoted to oblivion. That's pinkbike for you.

Spotted: Prototype Full Suspension Bike Spied Near BMC Headquarters
@pyromaniac: Specialized never had a dual short link layout, which this bike has. So nothing like Specialized actually.

Huhn Cycles Unveils Additive Manufactured Steel '4X/Enduro' Hardtail
One benefit of printing lugs as opposed to welding tubes together is a larger surface area of the joint and a smoother transition, reducing stress risers. Potentially.

@boozed: Um... nope. DW should be more different to the VPP layout in characteristics than it would be to a Specialised Horst link. And a counter-rotating horst link bike's characteristic (Rocky Mountain) should be closer in characteristic to a VPP bike than to the FSR. Co-rotating links move the IC rearwards through the travel, counter-rotating links move it forward. Having different suspension systems on bikes with the same geometry and same for example anti-squat at the sag point will still give different characteristics through the travel due to link lengths and location. Even more, the same suspension layout with different details can give different results. Even with the same static geometry and for example antisquat at sag. As for short link vs. long link, switch infinity is packaged as a dual short link (if you squint...), but it acts, kinematically, as a bike with an infinitely long link. But as above, it's what you do with that long link that matters. So how it's oriented (rotate it forwards and the IC will be under the ground for example) and how the other link is oriented.

Opinion: 7 Things All New Mountain Bikes Should Have
@bogey: what about running a 220 mm rotor with a +40 adapter? Or running a 180 mm rotor with no adapter?

Behind the Numbers: Unno Dash
@Shred-BC: Metric shocks can be expressed in imperial dimensions and vice versa (clearly). The catch is that older, 'imperial' shocks (RS Monarch family for example) are based in imperial measurements (7,875 x 2 in for a 200x51 shock, 7,875 x 2,25 in for a 200x57 shock, etc.) with the numbers 'exact' in imperial (I can see the irony in my statement) and metric numbers just rounded off to 190, 200, 216 mm, etc. for the ETE and 51, 57, 63 mm for the stroke. For 'metric' shocks (with the RS Super Deluxe family representing those - other manufacturers offer same models in all dimensions) a whole new ETE vs. stroke sizing was devised with longer ETEs for the same stroke. Standard ETE lengths are 190, 210, 230 and 250 with the same shocks coming in 165, 185, 205 and 225 mm ETEs in Trunnion mount (subtract 25 mm from the standard shock to get the Trunnion ETE). The strokes are 37,5, 40, 42,5, 45 mm for the 165/190 mm ETE, 47,5, 50, 52,5 and 55 mm for the 185/210 mm ETE shock, 57,5, 60, 62,5 and 65 mm for the 205/230 mm ETE shock and 67,5, 70, 72,5 and 75 mm for the 225/250 mm ETE shock. So you have a very standardized set of ETEs and stroke lengths while previously a frame designer with a big enough company could special order a different ETE/stroke shock (which is how we got the 200x57 mm shock, which is just horrible packaging wise). For the same stroke you now either go to a 30 mm longer shock or go Trunnion. That means more space for the shock body, for the damping, etc. and more bushing overlap, which was one of the main benefits of the Deluxe over the Monarch family. And with that longer body bearing mounts (using robust and cheap 608 bearings) is also an option. So 'metric' is just a name that was used to create a different platform, where the dimensions are 'exact' in metric units, while the older shocks of course got the imperial notation since their dimensions were (sort of) 'exact' in imperial units.
