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 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.

Review: Fox Live Valve Suspension
If the battery, controller and sensors alone weigh 176 grams plus the Live Valve dampers are a little heaver than their regular counterparts, then how is it possible for the whole system to only add 144 grams to the bike?

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Wash Your Bike?
I think this is the way to do it if you mostly ride dry conditions, although I would add a quick stanchion wipe before every ride. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but I worry that washing too often could actually push debris into your wiper seals and bearings and may require more frequent service and re-greasing.

Video: How to Make Trails Look Steep in Photos
Don't use superview. Superview literally just takes the 4:3 footage from the sensor and squishes it down to a 16:9 aspect ratio, which flattens everything out. It can make it look like you're moving a lot faster, but if you want the terrain to look steep, then use wide or linear. It still won't always do the trail justice, but it helps.

Review: Guerrilla Gravity Smash
@kleinblake: I think he means if you want a coil shock to feel more poppy and playful like an air shock you can increase compression damping for better support and decrease rebound damping for more pop. Presumably you would only do this on flow trails where the sensitivity isn't as beneficial.
