Bike Check: Joe Nation's Pole Stamina
Absolutely. It's the same head angle as a Demo 8 or Tues, and 0.2° slacker than the new V10.

So what you're saying is if I get a size XS frame then I'll be able to corner better than Sam Hill :)

Ask Pinkbike: Tire Pressure, Hip Packs, Dehydration, and 'Le Systeme'
Actually, I forgot to account for the weight of the bike. Let's assume it's a 30 lb bike, so 180/230*30 = ~23.5. So 23 psi would probably be a closer equivalent pressure. But still, I feel like most people massively underestimate the effect rider weight has on tire pressure.

@islandforlife: All other factors being equal, a 200 lb rider running 30 psi is actually equivalent to a 150 lb rider running around 22 psi (150/200*30 = 22.5, then round down since the casing will also be a bit firmer relative to the lighter rider). These pressures should result in roughly the same size contact patch for both riders.

Next SL Cinch 175mm Red

$250 USD
Selling my Next SL 175 mm cranks. These came on my Intense Spider 275c I used them for about a season and a half before I switch to 170mm cranks. They are pretty scratched up and could probably use some fresh protective tape, but they are still as stiff and sturdy as new. The spindle, threads, and chainring interface are all in excellent condition. 68/73mm spindle Hands down the best cranks on the market. Incredibly light, stiff, and durable. I loved them so much I replaced them with the same cranks except 170mm. Asking $250. Buyer pays shipping.

Review: Fox Live Valve Suspension
@tkaszuba: I'm not sure exactly how Live Valve works, but I believe you could use the accelerometers to differentiate between rider input, which would be a downward acceleration of the frame and little to no upward acceleration of the wheel, versus a bump on the trail, which would be an upward acceleration of the wheel and little to no downward acceleration of the frame. Then it's just a matter of using that information to trigger the solenoid valve to open or close the compression damping.

Review: Fox Live Valve Suspension
I'm in the same boat as you, but I think you might be missing the point here. This isn't just for climbing. Imagine having your suspension firm up as you pump through rollers, berms and g-outs, and then instantly open as needed to soak up rock gardens and drops. Suspension setup has always been a compromise between support and traction / comfort. Live Valve is an attempt to eliminate that compromise.
