Ask Pinkbike: Fox 38 Damper Tuning, Short Cranks for eMTBs, Axle to Crown Heights, & How to Avoid Going Over the Bars
@Dougal-SC: If you want to go straight to PB purgatory give ‘em your not so positive opinion on RS’s Charger 3. Now every fan boy’s pissed.

The Pinkbike Podcast: What Loic Bruni is Hiding, OE Deals and Motocross with Öhlins' Terje Hansen
Rad interview Henry. In regards to technical climbing you have a point except that the chassis needs to be corrected for rear weight bias due to the incline. Did I hear it correctly that Loic/Finn’s setups are rely more on damping than spring rate but still run sag in the normal range? Judging by how soft their setup appears this doesn’t jive, or us it that the rest of the WC field is running some massive spring rates, cause it’s a common story that they are running heavy damping as well.

Review: Cane Creek Tigon - The Air Charged Coil Shock
@justinfoil: Obviously shimmed valves can be preloaded but unlike poppets they don’t have to be. My thoughts in this case were that they moved the rebound valving to the main shaft with washer style shims to get away from digressive rebound tunes. Is there a shock with adjustable HSR that does not use poppets and the therefore a digressive curve? Maybe 11-6 and parabolic needles?

Review: Cane Creek Tigon - The Air Charged Coil Shock
Looks like there is No HSR because the rebound is a shimmed valved on the piston attached to shaft and is just a bypass bleed similar to the new Fox twin tubes (except the piston is on the opposite end of the shaft of the reservoir, and also why LSR adjuster is on top not bottom). This is better setup than an adjustable HSR because that requires a preloaded poppet which limits your curve to digressive, verses a shimmed valve that allows for a linear, progressive or regressive curve. but tune can only be changed by taking it apart.

Racing Rumours 2024 Part 1: Danny Hart Off Cube, Vali to YT, the End of GT Factory Racing, Kintner Off Norco, & More
@jaame: Rachel’s first race back was a Win. Tomac has #3 kiddos and shoulda won the SX title if it were not for a fluke injury. Sam Hill won a few EWS championships with mouths to feed. Theory debunked.

Field Test Review: 2024 Ibis HD6 - Sporty and Smashy
@LaNada: I mean I really just want them to validate my opinion on CS length, but still come on! On the preview article, they list each bikes CS in a way that makes it one of the defining characters of a bikes handling but then they are not discussing its influence in the reviews. Is it important? Is it not? does the DW link kinematics play well with a shorter CS? Inquiring minds want to know!

Field Test Review: 2024 Ibis HD6 - Sporty and Smashy
"Then there are the chainstays to consider - the 435mm length remains the same on all sizes, which we’ll discuss in both climbing and descending." And?

Review: Specialized Dissident 2 Helmet - Downhill Safety at an Enduro Weight
A lighter helmet does compromise safety. For example my motocross helmet, an Alpinestars M10 weighs 270 grams more but has a multi density EPS liner, verses a single, 3layer carbon composite shell, ERS pads for helmet removal without disturbing the head, MIPS, and detachable visor.
