First Look: Forestal Reveals New 'Hydra' Downhill & 'Cyon' Trail eMTB Designs
@DoubleCrownAddict:: I had the V-10 that actually had 10" travel and it rode much better in the 8.5" setting. I am pretty sure that if 220 mm offered better performance then the WC DH teams would be pushing development in that direction.

Thought Experiment: What Would It Take to Build a Sub-7kg Mountain Bike Using Only Stock Parts?
If you are using BBInfinite (which are awesome) you could go ceramic and save more weight and have a more spinny BB. Also Lindarets Titanium tubeless valves are lighter, prettier and have a wider bore so less likely to clog with sealant.

Review: 6 Hard-Hitting Rear Tires Ridden & Rated
@toad321: Yeah never had a problem with the Der Kaiser Projekt or Der Baron Projekt losing air (not the post 2018 version anyway) but they definitely give up some longevity in having such supple side walls. I usually remove the back due to side wall sealant weepage long before the tread is toast. That said 7-800 Whistler kilometres for a rear tyre is pretty decent kms/ dollar as far as I am concerned. Currently experimenting with and enjoying the Michelin WILD Enduro combo and FRONT on both wheels on bigger bike and liking both set ups. I agree with the review that the WILD Enduro REAR looks to be wearing quickly on the centre knobs, currently at 430 km, but I'll see how it goes. It might suffer serious initial wear and then hold that 50% worn state for ages. The main thing is that the sidewalls and side knobs are still going strong and gripping like a gorilla refusing to let go of his banana.

Pinkbike Poll: What's Your Ideal Handlebar Width?
@likeittacky: DH bike at warp speed is a different set of leverage requirements than an enduro bike on a mixed stage. Like standing in front of your fruit bowl and noticing that the apple you are eating doesn't taste like the orange you left in the bowl.

Granite Design Introduces a Computer Mount for the SWAT Conceal Carry System - Pond Beaver 2021
@kev-jones: The best. Based on having tried almost every other type of mount at least once (In order of best to less best: Bar Fly 4.0, Bar Fly, K-Edge - Gravity Cap, standard and flex mounts, Garmin, SRAM and some others I probably tossed after one ride).
