Specialized Air Tool Blast Tubeless Tire Setter - Review
I wish this had a bleed valve. I've found that you have to remove the valve stem to get tires to seat. However, once the bead is set, it'd be nice to have a way to slow release the pressure. The current option is to pull off the pumphead and WHOOOOSH! If there is any sealant in the tire, you're gonna get some on your workspace floor.

@RobonMaui: Yep, so they took off the gimbal. "It didn't matter though, he's such a powerful and smooth rider that his POV cam footage looks stabilized without a gimbal!" Stay in school :)

Felt Bicycles Acquired by Rossignol Group
With the avalanche of great bikes these days, I hope Rossignol helps Felt carve out a niche.

Intense ACV: Foundation Build - Review
In comparing a 27.5x2.8 NN to a 29x2.5 DHF, there are some reasonable weight savings. Roughly 150g per tire and probably 40g per rim. So, 27.5 gives you a stronger wheel and less rotational weight. Alternatively, a 27.5x2.8NN is within 5 grams of a 29x2.6NN. For similar tire weight, you get more volume with the smaller wheel size. All this number crunching suggests the 27.5+ is better for climbing and for loose conditions. That reflects my brief experience renting a 27.5+ Hightower in Moab. That bike ate everything I could I could throw at it. Steep climbs, sandy corners, and chunky straight-line descents. Right now I am experimenting with a 29x2.6NN on the front of a stumpy FSR. It's been awesome for current mid-Atlantic conditions -- lots of wet leaves over roots and gravel. However, the 2.6 tire raises the front end a noticeable amount. The front feels a bit vague on twisty trails. Still experimenting with pressures and contemplating flat bars..
