Ask Pinkbike: Fox 38 Damper Tuning, Short Cranks for eMTBs, Axle to Crown Heights, & How to Avoid Going Over the Bars
This is something I see very often. You don't need that much 'special' tools. You can remove the air side head with a decent size knipex or a grinded down socket so it grips good. You would need soft vice grips (and a vice) for the diameter of the shaft (which I forgot, but I believe it's 10mm?) a 12mm wrench to undo the head, some small pick to pry away the loctite and a bullet like thingy (I've seen people use a object similar to a ballpen) to put it back in again, to make sure you dont damage the o-ring when sliding it back in. And a little loctite 277 for when you are thightening the head back on the shaft. I would use a mix of slick-honey with a dash of Fox 20 to lube up the pistonhead and tube, adding the 3ml Fox 20 on top later.

An easy one to setup the Fox 38 (and not only) - get it to 15% to 20% SAG and start playing around from there. My recommendation would be, take your weight bracket, follow the PSI's indicated and add around another 7% to 10% on top of that, and then follow the indicated rebound settings for this level of air-pressure and figure out if you like to be at the slow or the fast side. This setup mostly works when you are getting up to the speedy kinda things and like some support. If you are not happy start playing around with the tokens. (edited)

The New Remco Bike Lift Does It For You
@andwrong: I currently work with the: Bicisupport BS101 PRO-TOUR - Anyway the thing is super stable, allows for a good clean grip, easy adjustability when you need get things level, or lowered etc - offers an easy flipover of the bike when you need to maybe work on an e-bike and dismount the engine etc and general decent workheight for most procedures. A downside might be lifting really heavy bikes (30kg+ or bikes which have a big off balanced weight) on and off the bench. I've worked with the PARK PRS 3.3.2 as well - the one with a big base plate, but never really liked the thing. The clamp, the positioning, dunno all a bit clumpsy to me + you are constantly 'gripping' on something, putting stress on some component or frametube. We have another one in the shop that is similar to the Beta 3901, which is a really cool thing, and working on heavy bikes with this stand is a walk in the park, but I like the Bicisupport better in terms of workflow.

It must be me, but as soon as you have some seriously seized components or heavy duty jobs to do, this kind of 'column stand' seriously suck.

Thought Experiment: How Good Could e-Bikes Get?
E-bikes are pretty fine right now. There is the: 'lightweight class', 'normal weight class' and the tank class. Each with their own perks, fitting to riders, ridingstyle and groupbehaviour. Pretty much as there is in normal MTB's. Sure we can shave off another Kg or 2. Not sure if normal consumers pockets can fathom these 'updates'. Follow marketing, this would create further pressure on values of all preceding and existing bikes out there. Normal MTB's have never cost this little until now, so keep it up...

Photo Story: Dream Ridge Project
I didn't sound like you had fun at all. It all sounds like a 'super heavy adventure' where everything kinda went wrong. To find yourself on the wrong ridge is next to plain stupidity, as this is 'a super carefully planned trip'? Was the leaking brake was just to spice up the story? Who the heck goes riding a leaky brake in the Alps? Why wouldn't you be able to fix this? Congrats on the promo pics.

Final Results from Red Bull Rampage 2023
Other than the final scores. They have a week? to coordinate cameracrews and positioning, they are 'presumably' in contact with riders and building crews to understand their lines and tricks. How come the camerawork and the way things are displayed are always in the mehhhhh part of quality. It's one of the biggest events in this category on behalf of Red Bull, but it looks every year like they do it for the first time.

Final Results from Red Bull Rampage 2023
Last year Lacondeguy, this year Bienve, Brenndog.. it seems like the judges have their scores filled in before the run.. I can understand in Bienve's case that it was incredibily stupid not to finish the run, but yeah after pulling off those hits, try to keep your emotions in check, his stuff was insane.
