Patrol 672 – Review
@takeiteasyridehard: Good point - the first rider down the Joyride course is never going to get a winning score. In this case, however, I think time will show that it's a fair review and that its competitors will suffer similar dings related to the compromises necessary to squeeze into a 2500 to 3000 dollar MSRP. I thought long and hard about how I was going to treat the bikes in this series. I decided to rate their performance like I would any other bike, regardless of price, and to then frame them in a realistic discussion about the compromises that may have been made to hit their price points. I also decided to ride them stock first (like customers will) and later, install or suggest affordable upgrades to address issues that potential owners may face.

Kenda Helldiver Pro DH Tire - Review
2bigwheels: I prefer wider rims and lower pressures (and I get my wheels for free), but for riding the rocks around here, that's a safe pressure that most riders use.

TranzX Dropper Seatpost - Review
Socket: True. My reference is to the overall design of the clamp-head: lower half offset back to support the higher-stressed part of the saddle rails, and the general look of it, being a near copy of the Reverb. There are many two-bolt heads to cite in history, but the Reverb's design is iconic in the arena of dropper posts.

WTB Scraper i40 Rims - Review
Travel66: The Firebird can fit a 2.6, but it can't (and probably shouldn't) fit plus tires. We just switched out the wheels, using the same tire: 2.35" Schwalbe Magic Mary (F) and a 2.35" Rock Razor (R), both with the reinforced casings. The reason was to hand the wheels over to another test rider who could thrash the rims harder. Schwalbe's casings measure correctly, so they look like most tire maker's 2.5's, which is probably why they worked well on such a wide rim. I'm also interested in the 2.6" format, so l'll order some for review and report back soon

Last Call: Random Images from Outdoor Demo, Interbike 2017
I agree, regular people can go to Sea Otter - ride and race, and see all the new stuff in the expo area. It's probably what Interbike needs to become in order to remain relevent.
