Video: Wild Freeride Lines from Red Bull Formation 2022
Did I see what I think I saw at about 3:18? Jump to side-saddle landing into another jump and back to pedals? I'm sure there's some sort of wacky name for it like a "wet hashbrown" or "topsie onesie" or something, but no matter what it's called, that was siiiiiiiick.

Video: New Bikes from We Are One and Orange, a Titanium Stem, and X-Fusion's Wireless Dropper - Sea Otter 2022
...That weighs as much as a RF Turbine stem and more than a 9Point8 stem with a Ti bolt upgrade. Both of which have fully-removable faceplates for easy maintenance.

Intense Releases 2022 Tracer 279
I think it's just the higher stack height plus the significant stem spacers on the display model they used for the catalogue photos. It looks a lot less weird on the shots of it being ridden by the dude at the end (with fewer stem spacers) and in the frame-only shot.

Opinion: Which MTB Innovations Do We Actually Need?
@WasatchEnduro: If I'm not mistaken, it seems like their six-bar design was designed to provide similar kinematics to their SI sliding system. I can't tell if that's due to the motor taking up the space where the sliders go on their regular bikes, or if they believe the six-bar setup will result in lower maintenance costs/frequency compared to the SI design. If it is the former though, I'm not so sure they'll ditch the SI system on their next-gen bikes.

Throwback Thursday: 7 Bikes Turning 30 in 2022
Didn't have any of these, but my first bike had the RockShox Mag21 that's shown on that Schwinn. 48mm of overly-linear, stiction-tastic travel. You pumped air into each leg using a basketball needle and you had a choice of so much air that it wouldn't move or just enough air to actually get it to dive into the travel but with constant bottom-outs. The latter actually worked out alright for tracking the trail, but you just had to accept the regular bottom-out clunks that went along with it.

Review: Fox Transfer SL Dropper Post
@Malamute2: Mine's (regular Fall line, not the lightweight "R") on year 3 without issue. Plus, the light action on the trigger makes it such a joy to use. My PNW feels like it takes about three or four times the thumb pressure to activate.

Review: Fox Transfer SL Dropper Post
Sounds like the 9Point8 lightweight post is still the way to go. It's a shame that they don't get more attention for that thing.

The European Bike Project: 5 Exciting Products from Small European Manufacturers - January 2022
@Tmackstab: I had thought that the WAO/77Designz DA package combo was all proprietary, but looking at the 77designz sight, it looks like that stem is indeed universal. I know we went away from lighter stems that didn't have clamp plates in the late 90s because of the annoyance of doing any service work around your bar and stem areas, but with the ease of lock-on grips, these super-light two-bolt stems are pretty tempting. And before anyone says that lock-ons add back any weight saved by something like this, I'd take lockons and a harder-to-separate bar/stem combo over slide-on grips and an easier-to-manage bar-stem combo.

That stem is impressively light. I think it's even slightly lighter than the 9point8 stem with Ti bolts, which is saying something.
