Review: Fox Live Valve Suspension
@tkaszuba: I imagine that for a lot of the riders I speak to when they ask me about adjusting suspension that they would get in the right range faster with a shock wiz and a stop watch than they would without it. I'm not saying that it does not have some issues and obviously runs an algorithm that has certain assumptions built into it but it can help. That said having the self discipline to run multiple (ie at least 4 per suspension setting: air pressure, tokens, LSR, LSC and HSC) varied test loops with a stop watch and concentrating on improvements (or not) in traction and time in various sections would also help most riders.

Review: POC Tectal Race SPIN Helmet
Or if you keep crashing and destroy two helmets in one season (thanks POC for helping avoid brain injuries) you can swap your SPIN liner from your original Tectal Race into a regular Tectal (because it is the only one left in stock on XL) and still get the benefits of SPIN.

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
@nismo325: Those cars don't get tomahawked down rock and root covered trails on a daily/ weekly basis! Or leant against stone walls by renters with no concept of what the bike might be worth and that paint and stanchion coatings and pointy rock don't play well together!!

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
Yes but they cannot even put the strips they provide now in the parts box without folding them in such a way that they a rippled and un-usable now!

Backcountry Adventure in the South Chilcotins - Mountain Biking BC Sea-to-Sky Trip Set
Good article I particularly like the emphasis on etiquette and trail use! As a guide for Tyax Adventures I would add to "Bike": derailleur hanger per bike and at least one good mini pump per group. A decent maintenance session before coming on this sort of trip would also not be amiss. If you have any doubts about any part on your bike get it checked and either fixed or replaced.

Bike Check: Geoff Kabush's Enduro-fied Yeti SB130
@yupstate: No the SB130 is specced with a Fox 36. Both at retail and, fairly obviously, in the article above on Geoff's bike.

Orbea Announces Oiz XC Bike
He is so embarrassed at riding in lycra rather than baggies that he leaves home in the dark so his mates don't bag on him!!
