Fouriers Quick True Tool - Review
Happy to hear that everyone else is using zip ties / twist ties too. Cheap, effective, as accurate as these screw-precision gadgets, and already in my toolbox for many reasons. Twist tie truing: https://bmxunion.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/zip-tie-wheel-truing-bmx-video.jpg

That's a great idea for a t-shirt: "Bitch and moan all day on the internet and all I got was this lousy t-shirt" https://www.customink.com/proof/fru0-00b7-gkfw/4683/front/watermarked_big.jpg

Riding Rigid is Ridiculous - Opinion
Came here to say this, haha! The times I've appreciated my FS bike the most are right after I've ridden my old hardtail on the same trails. Lack of suspension makes you a better rider - it's important to pick a line, use your legs as suspension... Lack of e-power makes you a "rider".

Diamondback's Carbon Release 5c – Review
@jclnv: The old VP free (and other VPP1 bikes) had a wonky leverage rate - lots of comfort in mid stroke. Ramp-up at the end. Very little anti-squat (in fact maybe pro-squat) They improved a bit with VPP2 tweaks to improve these things, but there are superior short-link designs out there.

We've reached a saturation point in trailbike offerings and still more appear. $6825 for a 140mm FS 29er using a modified Horst link suspension.

Continental Talks Tires - Interbike 2017
I love my Mountain King 27.5 2.4, but it's always had trouble seating on a DT EX471 rim. (Maxxis tires have seated on the same rim with a floor pump). Once the Conti is seated though, it's happy at 27psi and has great traction on San Diego's dry, dusty / sandy trails. It's less performant in wet conditions - the Black Chili compound is a bit slick in the wet.
