Fox Announces 175mm Transfer Dropper Post
Used a transfer 150 for 18 months. Scored the kashima to the metal underneath after having a mates braided hope brake line wear it off when I was stupid enough to leave it up in transport after a month and it's never skipped a beat in all that time. I'd had a doss post before and they have both been bulletproof reliable in shitty UK conditions (old race face turbine post that came on the bike warranteed twice in the first 2 months and sold). The only issue I've had was with the 1by remote having a stupidly tiny Allen bolt that stripped twice so șwapped it for an I spec one up lever and all good. I'll be buying a one up post when the transfer dies though for two reasons: The price is about the same as a service plus a replacement shaft on the transfer. The stack height on the transfer is too high collar to rails, I can fit the 170 one up in about the same space as the 150 transfer. If the post suits your frame and you're happy with the drop to stack ratio you really can't go wrong with a transfer in my experience, you pay a premium but get a post that just flat out works in all conditions with no maintainance.

Exploring the Relationship Between Handlebar vs Stem Length
Just recently changed from a 35 mm atlas stem and 800 mm sixc bars to 40 mm stem and 800 mm fatbar. The fatbar has a degree less backsweep and the plan was to get more weight on the front wheel with the same stack height but I've noticed a slight improvement in control and feel as well. On an alloy orbea rallon in large so it's long enough for short stems but just the 5mm increase coupled with the slight decrease in sweep has really improved the handling so maybe going as short as possible isn't always the best policy

Video: 'Slimy Like That Feta' is Phil Atwill's Last Rip on a Propain
Got the skill, got the style and got the attitude to go to the top step, with any luck it'll be a great off season and he'll come into the season fully fit because he's had shithouse luck with injury. Good luck Phil, great edit again

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Rather Have an Air or Coil Sprung Shock on Your Trail Bike?
I can't answer, have a fox float x for 90 percent of the time and a cane creek db coil for longer, more alpine style descents. The air is more suited to most of my trails and the coil sucks the life out of flowy, pump and roll style tracks but for extra control and that planted feel on dh tracks and the longer, faster coil wins. Clichés but they stand up, good to have a frame that can accept both because I couldn't justify the expense of two bikes and the modern geometry of longer travel trail bikes makes dh tracks accessible with a few set up tweeks and tyre choice. For all the bitching we've never had it so good
