Video: Brendog's Vallnord Course Preview POV
As I did read in past pb bike checks before, Brendan use to run pretty high pressures on his fork ,and by the buzzing tires in the video I can only think the arm and hand pain after a run hehe

@hitarpotar: ummm it has normal enduro build stuff on it but the sales talk says u can do big jumps and smash the trail going down freeride style and going back pedaling uphill like an enduro..... ummm so we can say it a free-duro bike???? haha

Is The Quintessenz The Most Adaptable Long-Travel Bike? - Eurobike 2018
Whoaa this guy just made rear shocks with pedaling levers and platforms useless ,and could conquer the holy grail which is completely independency from suspension interaction with the pedaling forces with just a toggle link,what can be even more perfect?? The same link also varies the entire frame angles as a group in 3 whole degrees without loosing its pedaling effectiveness,head tube angles goes from 65° to 68° and got defined by enduro and xc bikes ,thanks to this design we can have both bikes in one! Stunning! I can only think about Felt and a bike design they got with a tension link holding the chainstay with the rocker arm from making the suspension work during pedal forces....was a great idea but this made the bike very insensitive being a full suspension, DW link has a similar way to isolate pedal forces but it needs the body of the rider in a different position to make this happen ,none of these models had a close option to vary angles without at least some headset cups in case you want to spend some money on it or maybe a talas fork with travel regulation,definitely if this new bike design is patented I can only see Scott or high end brands paying for the use of this great step upward tech ,we will just see them putting their carbon fiber technology on it haha, only if Bahr decides not to produce 1st the carbon model and introduce that hydraulic way to switch geometries on the run, this guy deserves a beer seriously .

Review: Hayes' New Dominion A4 Brake
ive been running hayes brakes from when i had my 1st hydraulic disc brake ,mainly by the great affordable price of a second hand brakeset , i have since then(2014) the stroker rydes , bleed some stroker trails and ace's for a friends that got these saved in a cabinet for more than a year mainly by the usual issue the blade develops from time to time which is sticky levers because the piston inside the body gets dry and the inner coil is not meant to push the lever out when the piston have alot of friction due to humidity and dust since these brakes didnt use to have a kind of booth or dustwiper, it is just a seeger ring that keeps the inner piston secured from popping out of its place,great simple and reliable design besides the dustseal need,another thing is the main piston being made from metal not the usual plastic crap nowadays brakes are made of,in the piston just goes this cup seal and an o-ring ,my friends aces got them dry and broke away, just a simple aftermarket o-ring from a seal store at the right measures in the inner /outer diameter and the brakes where alive again after some long time being in a dirty cabinet so from that part i can tell you hayes brakes are great quality stuff ,once bleed and ready i decided to test them in my normal trails, damn the 4 piston Ace's are beasts for a brake to be honest,the 2 piston trails where just great too unfortunately they didnt have enough meat in the pads to test them properly,just a garage ride but they stopped solid, the aces felt like u could do trials and stop a motor bike haha huge stopping power ,after i send them back to my friends i definitely wanted to buy my own stroker ace's and so i did actually i bought a brakeset at a great price on the buysell tab of pinkbike just because the rear brake got a big crash that cutted the hose,must have been a huge gap because hayes factory hoses are pretty solid and reinforced with kevlar , another stuff i love from hayes is the OEM parts and interchangeable ability you have, just bought a whole 1900mm hose kit with fittings,orings and newer mounting bolt and new purge allen piece as well as the rubber booth for 15$! now my aces are coming back to life for a bike project i have. the center screws where included in the hayes prime's model since some few years ago and just the users that got this brakes could enjoy this feature,i have on plans to buy primes too definitely,hayes its a great brand for brakes ,never got problems with mines ,just some drops of dot fluid in a syringe for when the inner piston gets sticky and the lever blade would be buttery smooth again in the case of the strokers and thats all,solid brakes over the time. now with this new line i only can expect the best from hayes since they make great stuff.

Review: Hayes' New Dominion A4 Brake
actually the body lever form is pretty similar to the mags ,the blade looks like a shimano XT ,just some few upgrades where done if you see both body levers on a comparison hehe

What is the Sexiest AM/FR/Enduro Hardtail of 2016 - Pinkbike Forum
@Scotj009: ummm i remember that cedric gracia used to run his cannondales with lefty forks also these forks has dual crown so they would stay in place for a good ride , tbh i was waiting to see a bike like a Mondraker vantage RR+ also what matters is the way the is made not what material the bike use, like Noel Buckley said in a pb interview about the knolly endorphine : "manufacturing techniques and the quality of the materials are much more important than the actual type of material used. There is a misconception in the bike industry that all alloy frames cost the same amount to manufacture and that all carbon frames cost the same amount to manufacture. That's kind of like saying that both a Hyundai Genesis and a Porsche 911 Turbo weigh 1,500kg and have roughly the same amount of materials in them, hence both should cost the same. Of course, that's not true at all, and cost of manufacturing can vary wildly, even with the same materials involved. A well engineered and manufactured alloy frame will far outperform a lesser carbon frame, hands down"

What is the Sexiest AM/FR/Enduro Hardtail of 2016 - Pinkbike Forum
mmmm they all look so..... skinny and fragile... idk but the only bike that looked a bit more stronger and like a bike i would ride, was the stanton with lefty suspension. besides these are hardtails mostly i prefer full suspension looking for AM/FR haha :D
