The Eurobike Rumors: AXS Suspension, 1.8'' Steerer Tubes, a SRAM Motor, Fox's 38mm Fork - Eurobike 2019
On the other hand, if a 1.8" steerer is what it takes to stop fork crowns from creaking after a year of use, I'm all for it. I've had 5 forks from 3 different companies and they all creak after 12-18 months.

Pinkbike Poll: Who's Breaking Bikes These Days?
@willaasss: Same here, though it took me a while to figure out that my stem was a bit bent. I was having a really hard time trying to get my handlebars straight after the crash, then I realized that I wasn't losing my mind. The stem was bent which was why I couldn't get the bars to line up.

Time Announces New 'Speciale 8' Enduro Pedal
@ugez: Let's put it this way. I'm still running a set of Time pedals from back in the days when CB didn't even make pedals. My newest set is over 10 years old and I just move them from bike to bike and replace the cleats when they wear out.

First Ride: WTB’s 2019 Tires & Rims
@WAKIdesigns: Not really, they put the side knobs on backwards. Kinda like what Bontrager did with the G4 which was their first attempt at cloning the DHF. They eventually got it right with the G5 but it took them a few years.

DH Fantasy League: 3 Days Left to Change Your Team Before Fort William
@m1dg3t: Minnaar hasn't been on a podium since he started using the Assguy tires. Gotta keep an eye out on the practice & qualifying photos to see which tires he's on.

First Look: Schwalbe’s New, More Aggressive Hans Dampf - Garda Trentino 2018
@mykel: Schwalbe makes exactly 3 good tires; Magic Mary, Rock Razor, and Dirty Dan. Given that the new HD has the NN side knobs and how they're also blocked off by stupidly angled intermediate knobs, it's going to be just as bad or even more of a disaster than the NN. And yeah, my experience with the NN was about the same as yours, the darn thing dumped me on my ass and tried to kill me as soon as I tried to corner it hard. It lets go with no warning and once it starts sliding it's nearly impossible to recover.

First Look: Jamis' New 3VO Suspension - Sea Otter 2018
@WasatchEnduro: I'm not sure, we should define terms to ensure we're on the same page. When I use the term regressive shock rate, I'm referring to a leverage curve that makes the shock easier to compress as you go deeper into the travel. This is what's shown in the graph of the leverage rate. In short, does it become harder or easier to compress the shock a given amount as you go through the travel. In this case, it becomes easier since the linkage design increases the leverage that the rear wheel has over the shock starting about halfway through the travel, and for the last 20mm or so, it has more leverage than the start and thus an easier time compressing the shock. Unless you use a shock with a low volume air chamber or stuff a regular shock full of volume spacers, you're gonna slam right though the travel and bottom it out hard if you ride it with any degree of aggression.

Regressive shock rate on a long travel bike. Yeah, that's not going to end well.
