@fracasnoxteam: No, it's just a $hit design. I'm a ME and have worked as an auto mechanic, if you tighten the mechanism enough so it doesn't come loose it will dent your steer tube. If you don't, then it requires periodic re-torquing. Unless you have a steel steer tube maybe.

You dodged a bullet imo. Had a stem years ago with that locking mechanism, it comes loose and dents your steer tube.

@krashDH85: I had one years ago, it's garbage. It WILL dent your steer tube if you tighten it enough. Can't believe they're trying to bring this one back, it seems like a massive liability to me.

Video: Conflict Arises Between 17 Year Old UK Rider & Apparent "Trail Saboteurs"
Stupid, ignorant women are choosing to initiate violence, the outcomes of these kinds of decisions are never good and it's entirely predictable. They need some jail time and community service to consider what they've done, and they should feel lucky they weren't physically harmed.

$3300 USD
2018 Trek Slash 9.9, Size Large. Build includes: -2019 Fox X2 Shock AND Brand New 2019 RockShox Thru-Shaft Shock. X2 has had recent service. -2018 Fox Factory 36 with 15mm kabolt axle and Vorsprung Luftkappe air spring upgrade. There is a minor scratch in the stanchion that does not seem to cause any oil leaking issues. This is pictured. -50mm and 60mm Stems Included -BikeYoke Revive Dropper w/ Triggy on matchmaker mount. AMAZING dropper post! Bonty lightweight Ti rail Saddle. -Race Face red 6C carbon bars, almost new. Red Monkey foam grips. -Guide RSC brakes w 180 rotors -XO RD, Shifter, NEW NX cassette, chain. Turbine R cranks w/170mm arms, Atlas Pedals. Wolftooth 32t oval ring. -New Roval aluminum wheelset, New Butcher tires. This bike is in great shape and is covered with clear bra film, Shelter Tape (super-thick armor tape), and mastic. Despite this there are some chips, Trek paint looks nice but chips a little easy, this bike has been protected against chips far better than average, please see photos. Many black marks and scratches in the photos are only in the clear bra, the chips in the paint show white. While the wheels aren't quite as high end as the rest they are new, and you won't have to overhaul the bike, it's been kept up and requires NOTHING, you can go ride it as-is with confidence. The fork has been regularly serviced, but may need new oil seals on the next service. The X2 has been recently serviced by Dirt Labs suspension. The Revive rarely needs anything and can be serviced by the user easily, it currently works perfectly. Asking $3500, (NOW $3300) that's about the cost of the frame when I bought it. Thanks for looking and let me know if you have any questions.

Behind the Numbers: Commencal Meta TR 29
@JohanG: You can find more info here, it compares axle paths and I wouldn't have thought it would make much difference, but the way the new Enduro eats up rocky jank without losing momentum is really impressive. It looks like all they did was move the main pivot up and forward a bit vs previous FSR designs, not counting shock linkage of course.

@JohanG: Axle path is one of the things Specialized talks about a lot wrt their new Enduro and how it doesn't get hung up nearly as much as previous implementations of FSR, and IME it's absolutely correct, far better vs older FSR and also Trek's ABP. It seems like small difference in axle path may make larger differences out on the trail.

Video: How to Mountain Bike Safely During COVID-19
You can downvote me all you like, but making this vid without wearing gloves and not pointing out the benefits of helmets, kneepads and gloves is a major omission. I know it's trendy to not wear gloves, but IMO it's a questionable choice and also a poor choice as far as making a covid-biking video. Most races require this as an absolute minimum, it's not just me that thinks it's a good idea to wear some protective gear.
