Trek Fuel EX 9.8 Women's - Review
Actually the men's bikes are done the same way, with 27.5" wheels found on the 15.5" bike. Men don't get the choice either.

Race Face's New Next R Components - First Look
@raceface: What is the differences between the Next R handlebar and the SixC? I can't see any width or weight differences. Is the Next R more compliant? I wanted a 780mm handlebar and was concerned chopping the SixC would be too stiff.

Race Face's New Next R Components - First Look
Regarding the handlebars, what is the difference between the SixC and the Next R? Looking at the current SixC it is the same width and same weight for the same rise. What gives?

RockShox's New Pike - First Look
Any details about what the Debonair Air Spring really is? Is it the same larger negative chamber that they had on the 2016 Lyric and they finally put a name to it?

Shimano ME7 Shoes - Review
Does the rubber around the clip contact the pedal like for the trail version of the XTR pedal? My current clipless shoes don't make use of the extra surface area.

Pinkbike Poll: Convertible Full-Face Helmets - Yea or Nay?
I am a fan of the convertible helmet, and just purchased the Bell Super 3R. After piercing both of my lips with my teeth recently (not the first time), I wanted some extra protection. Now, it is true that you could need that protection at any time, so of course the safest option is wearing a full face every moment you are on the bike. That's just not practical or enjoyable. I take the approach of calculated risks; in the trails with quick downs and extended ups I am confident in the trail speeds to where taking a header is unlikely, and will keep the helmet as is until I reach the final rocky descent. However another one my rides has an hour and a half climb before having to descend; a perfect situation for a convertible helmet. I'm in 100%.

They function well. However, it can be sometimes tricky to make sure they are rotated properly (mine weren't machined perfectly either), plus they have to be pushed out every time you want to rebuild the air can. Since I used these to make a longer shock work into stock geometry, I can't say how much of a difference they make. If they made a Monarch Plus in the correct size, I'd much rather leave it as is rather than do the offsets. But since most people don't try to rebuild the shock a few times a year or swap out volume reducers often, it's probably not a big deal.

Orange Sharpie. Works like a charm.
