Commencal Supreme SX - Review
Anyone else think it's obscenely heavy? My aluminium dh bike is 34lbs, lighter then this with room to take load more out of the spec if I so chose. Also take your pressfit bb and shove it where the sun don't shine!....... Thoughts from experienced bike tech.

New Seats, Grips, Tires, and DH Drivetrains - Eurobike 2017
@madmax245: try the dh cased conti, nothing has a stiffer and more supportive sidewall. Nothing is as reassuring in corners. Anything else I've tried is like wet towels, super g's next but initial tests are they are pathetic.

Orange's Prototype 29er DH Bike - Eurobike 2017
The sensible move would be to update 324 to same frame set but sell both.

Formula's New DH Fork Uses Three Different Air Springs - Eurobike 2017
Why do they keep making tapered steerers for dh forks, it's unwanted, unnecessary and removes a tuning option!!!! Also they ALWAYS end up in the sales bin so why keep making them!

Behind the Scenes: Developing a New Suspension Product with Formula
@cunning-linguist: as mentioned by others, it's a sound concept, glad to see more companies adopting it. But you'll still have to pry my coil spring suspension from my dead, cold hands.

Fox's New 4-Way Adjustable Fork Damper - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@Trailsoup: the principal of mono tube with separate high and low speed compression and rebound is what marzocchi have been doing for last 3years, but with added bonus that it's self bleeding hot oil out of and compression end sucking in cool oil to replace at rebound end.

What if You Could Design Your Dream Bike? - Pinkbike Poll
Looking through the most common answers, the average want an enduro bike with pretty standard numbers. Although on the longer side. Guess what's in fashion at the moment, longer enduro bikes! Gullible.

Bikes of the IXS Downhill - Crankworx Innsbruck 2017
Rockshox are doing a good job of dumbing things down for the average weekend warrior with only low speed rebound and compression avaliable even on their top fork (internal for more then that) then air/spring. Rumour is fox is doing the same thing and dropping the RC2 damper for 'rad' which is low speed only. Shocks are a different matter though, Fox x2 offers High and low speed adjustments, so does the ccdb. But that's only production stuff, most of those will be on custom built units.
