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.

Sounds like the Push ACS3 kit.

Garbaruk 10 x 50 Wide-Range 11-Speed Cassette for SRAM XD Drivers - Review
@WAKIdesigns: Who said 10-50 is the best thing ever? It's all subjective man. I was just trying to explain why somebody might prefer 9-45 over 9-54 (namely better ground clearance, less unsprung weight, slightly cheaper without the need for a new cage) since you literally asked. But how much range you need is obviously entirely up to you. I'm running 10-42 and perfectly happy with it. Sure, some people might use the extra range enough to justify the downsides. But I also wonder how many of them actually need more than 500% range or really just need to adjust the size of their chainring to make better use of the range they already have.

Garbaruk 10 x 50 Wide-Range 11-Speed Cassette for SRAM XD Drivers - Review
@WAKIdesigns: 9-54 adds extra unsprung weight and requires a longer derailleur cage. 10-42 is already enough range at 420% in my opinion, but a little bit more would be nice. 9-45 should work with any stock 11 speed derailleur and give you the same 500% range as eagle, which seems like a good amount possibly even slightly overkill. 9-54 is 600%. That just seems a little ridiculous to me. I would not be using both ends of that cassette enough to justify the aforementioned trade offs of a larger cassette.

Are there many jobs for software engineers in the industry preferably on the R&D side of things?

Intend's New Headset Actually Improves Cockpit Stiffness - Review
Protip: Stop trying to line the stem up with the tire and instead try to line the handlebars up with the fork stanchions. I get it perfect first try almost every time using this method.
