I ride 4-5 times per week with decent but not particularly challenging single track out my door in Fish Creek Park in Calgary. Most of the "real" riding I do is in Fernie, BC with a couple of rides per week in K-Country. Don't live for the climbs but do take pride in the accomplishment and challenge but always do enjoy the downs. I'm a solid Intermediate and well balanced rider with no particular strengths but can do it all and hang with most riders my age and many younger.

Specialized's New Helmets Can Text For Help After a Crash
As an example, in June 2017 I took a backcountry Sunday evening ride, only the dog and I and in 90 minutes saw no one else on the trails. I had a significant crash on a pine needle covered bridge coming out of a higher speed turn, knocked myself unconscious and have no idea how long I laid on the ground until I came to, it took another 30 minutes before I could focus my eyes and wasn't seeing double. With five kms to the trial head it was dark by the time I got back to the car. If I hadn't come around or had been more disoriented I could have been there all night with serious consequences...much more careful now when taking those rides, I know something like this is a potential life saver and there's a Use Case for you.

Video: XC's Fastest Female Riders Tell You Why They Love MTB
I keep hearing about how there are not enough women in the sport....where I ride there are as many women as men and they are riding everything the men ride, I don't see it and definitely believe they are all equal on the trails. If you don't believe me you should ride Fernie and West Bragg Creek more often, I guarantee you'll see for yourself that given a supportive community there are plenty of females of all levels on the trails and can assure you there are many that'll likely kick most rider's butt's. My observation FWIW.

Intend's New Headset Actually Improves Cockpit Stiffness - Review
Drop the wheel, set bottom of fork on floor braced against the base of the wall, measure wall distance to bar ends, voila, set in 30 seconds.

2017 Pinkbike Awards - Value Product of the Year Nominees
@madmax245: Put a Brand X on my Fat Bike, it's heavy but it is a FB after is buttery smooth even when cold maybe even smoother than the multiple KS'es I've owned/own, insertion length could be an issue on some bikes but pretty hard to beat if you're on a budget.

Behind the Scenes with G-Form
Therein is the trick to avoid the "runs", pull up by the Pad not the Lycra sock. Unfortunately, there is still a fair amount of stress where the pad is sewn to the Lycra sock and over time this will also start to run...happens on both brands. I think a slightly heavier Lycra with reinforcement on the stitched area would help.
