Review: Race Face's Era Chainring Uses Steel, Carbon, & Aluminum
I can honestly say that I have never changed the chainring on my bike and can’t remember the last time I dropped a chain. Chains, yes I have changed them once worn but the ring itself never. By the time it’s done (and I cover some miles) then it’s new bike time as most of the bike would be destroyed by that point.

Staff Ride: Matt Beer's NZ MTB Rally-Spec Ibis HD6
@jesse-effing-edwards: guess it depends on what you are riding. I always ran 15% sag at the fork and typically raced long enduro bikes however, since I’ve stopped racing in now run 20% at the fork with more compression and now love the way it feels at my slower (thinking I’m going fast) pace on a shorter travel trail bike.

First Look: The 2024 Fox 32 Step-Cast Fork Has a Reverse Arch
The arch is cool until you need to clean the UK mud out of it then not to much.

First Ride: Fox Releases New Grip X & Grip X2 Dampers
I have a FIT4 and upgraded to a Grip2 and the difference is massive. A well set up Grip2 doesn’t really need to be locked out and is a good way to change the feel of your fork for the better imo.

Pinkbike Poll: Center Lock or 6-Bolt Brake Rotor Mounting?
Maybe centre lock should be used in racing like a F1 style fitting only applied to race cars. Faster for teams to prep bike and switch stuff etc. personally I just use whatever my chosen wheelset has. I have had loads of bikes with 6 bolt and a view with CL. Only drama I had is when I chanced to a different wheelset and then had to also factor new rotors into the bill on top. Does it really make a difference to the average rider? Does the few grams difference matter? 6 bolt is more commonly available imo so tends to be what I lean towards plus if a lose a cleat bolt I can trail side fix with a 6 bolt and get me home.

BYB Tech Releases Chrono Timing System
I used to love a bit of data to tell me how well I was doing but found often after a good ride I was then deflated seeing that I had not improved my times. I tend to measure a ride by the smile on my face these days and just record the ride data for fitness related reasons not worrying if I was fast or slow

Henry's Waffle House: All-Mountain Bikes Are Back, and They're More Pointless Than Ever
@weeksy59: depends on how you ride really. My 150/130 trail bike which is just right for my local has been to Antur and BPW a few times with my mate who rides a Strive. In the rough he clearly pulls away but it marginal and not like he’s waiting around for ages at the bottom. Horse for courses really.
