Building The World's Lightest 29er DH Bike With Dangerholm
If you're just riding and not racing, why not cut some complexity and weight and go singlespeed?

First Ride: The New EXT Era Fork is Very, Very Promising
@vinny4130: I'd guess the larger overlap will have a positive effect on creaking. But you're depending on the dimensions and expansion of the parts to add up such that after the press fit the headset seat is exactly the right size. Probably not a problem for split ring type seats like hope, but putting a cheap steel part or a chris king SS part on there if the dimensions are off is a problem. Unless they machine the dimensions for the headset after they press in the steerer, which I doubt.

Review: Giro's New Manifest Helmet
Looks like a bird's nest with a tumor. I was expecting a low cost, entry level helmet.

Cotic Launches the RocketMAX Gen3
@cotic-bikes: I hear what you're saying about longer bikes, but not everyone is your height. How do you know that making the chainstays proportionally longer (by leaving them around 450mm) on the small and medium sized frames is the right thing to do? Especially since you write the geometry works as a whole? I'd tend to classify the RocketMax along with the Banshee Titan, a great option for taller riders.

Video: In Depth Trackstand Tutorial
That's the way I learned it, ratcheting circles towards my forward foot on a slight incline. Slower and slower until you can stand still. I get the tips with using a small bump or depression, but the front wheel against a wall thing didn't help me much when I was trying to learn to do it. I guess everyone's different.

Video: Jordi Breaks Down a GRIP2 Damper from the New Fox 38 Fork
The sharply digressive compression damping adjust on the float x is the reason I swapped it out. Felt like you never knew what it was going to do in a given situation. Did make for an effective pedal platform. Then there's the Vorsprung recommendation to wind the HSR shut on the X2 and only use LSR to adjust the rebound. If VVC works as advertised it might be worth revisiting the Fox stuff. It would be nice if they posted dyno charts to give you some idea of what you're getting.
