Ask Pinkbike: Tire Width, Cleaning Tips, Shock Setup, & Buying a Bike Without Trying It First
@DHhack: I’m also on a SD for my air shock and like it. Sag is upper 20s on my Ohlins coil and the hsc adjust is nice, I run it in the middle setting mostly on the dh. I also liked the Jade-x and would have gotten a HSC tune on that shock to firm it up a little if I had kept it. Will demo a friends v2 soon with similar build and see if I can discern a difference in stiffness. Demoed a Sentinel v2 last month and thought it was awesome, just a little too slack. Could see myself going to the ripmo v2 carbon frame next year or sentinel v2 but would want to (gasp) steepen the 63.6 hta with a +1 angleset.

Ask Pinkbike: Tire Width, Cleaning Tips, Shock Setup, & Buying a Bike Without Trying It First
@DHhack: Fair enough hackman. A few thoughts: For anyone coil curious on the AF or v2 a progressive spring helps, as does a rear shock with the right HSC tune for you (or adjustable HSC). Shock setup/tune is everything. Lots of riders love the bike with a coil (I run both and switch when I want but if I had to run only one setup all the time it would be air). Cable rattle. No contest, guilty on all counts. It takes some patience and tinkering to shut it up. Frame flex. Not noticeable by 99% of riders in my opinion. Did you keep it? A great market to sell used assuming you can (probably not) find something else in stock.

More Than 50% of Pro Riders Feel They Wouldn't be Adequately Financially Supported After Injury - State of the Sport Survey
@PTyliszczak: Healthcare is excellent in the U.S. It's just pricey. Very pricey. I wish my last surgery only cost me $1250... flippin chump change.

Solo Developer Brings Mountain Biking Game Shred! 2 Featuring Sam Pilgrim to Playstation 4 & 5
Does the Grim Donut sound like a bucket of bolts tumbling down the mountain or does this version have STFU and TITs cable routing?

@Molesdigmyjumps: For sure I agree the lens (and frame) quality goes up with brands like Smith and Oakley. I like their products. But I tend to scratch my lenses whilst riding my off road two wheeled contraption so it's a big investment to pay for lenses that are inevitably scratched up a year later. And I haven't crashed yet due to the optics of lesser brands.

But top end glasses have performance on par with $70 glasses. I said 'on par' not 'equal' so the 3x+ cost over comparable glasses is just up to the rider whether it's worth that much more to them. My glasses and goggles are used hard and get scratched regularly so it's hard to see what 3x+ more is buying.

I just ordered some Tifosis that are very similar for a fraction. I also love Smith goggles mine work great and were affordable.
