Downhill Secret Revealed: Flat Tire Defender Foam Inserts - First Look
@kcapitan: the procore system is the Mtb iteration of tubliss. On a moto weight is less of an issue, plus procore is expensive and doesn't work as well as tubliss on a moto for various design reasons. That's why it hasn't caught on. A bib mousse would be awful on a Mtb for a few reasons--it would be impossible to pedal and heavy!

MRP Ramp Control Cartridge - Review
@jaydawg69: yep that looks like the only solution. Year a brand new fork apart and put in more shims. I never wanted an air fork, and the conversion apperwntly has to to be done when the fork is new to make a seal for the air chamber so not really an option. Pretty disappointing from a new fork. I'm not super heavy either... 205lbs

MRP Ramp Control Cartridge - Review
Now if there was just something out there that could increase the progression in my Boxxer team. I have the stiffest spring and compression all the way up and it still bottoms on every ride...

History and Deception - Opinion
I don't get it. Do people realize you can ride a Dirtbike on trails? Dirtbike technology is way better than ebike tech, and it looks like dirtbikes are cheaper. Why half-@ss it when you can just get a husky or ktm and ride that? I know it depends on the state but in Washington we have thousands of miles of single-track for dirt bikes. What am I missing?

Ask Pinkbike: Chain Guides for DH, CO2 Inflators, and Tire Recommendations
Ridden plenty of rocky downhill and a narrow wide chainring with a top guide with a clutch rear derailleur is all you need. Decreases the drag on the drive train by a lot and I've yet to drop a chain with that setup.

Scott RC Pro LF Glove
These things look like they would last a month before tearing apart at the seams. These gloves are probably made at the same sweatshop in China with the rest where they just stamp different logos on them and vary the design a little. So far the only gloves that have been worth a damn are Klim.

Marzocchi and Fox - What's Happening Now?
@theraven. I agree brand loyalty plays a part but I also think a lot of people that have tried both good fox products and good marz products prefer the marz for performance and reliability reasons, overall. But yeah it's just like a Dodge owner hating a Ford and never having owned one. I will say it seems my reasoning and other people's on here is performance based.

Marzocchi and Fox - What's Happening Now?
@theraven... And what causes fox hate? Generally it's people using their product a d either noticing it's poor performing or breaks often. Marzocchi, in terms of performance and reliability, has always been far better from my experience, and apparently many other people. I think with Fox the problem is most of the mtb'ers out there are fairly inexperienced riders and consider weight to the the most important factor when considering a bike or a bike part. Fox forks are generally much lighter due to cartridges and low oil volumes. Because of this, and probably other design factors, they don't perform as well as a marz, but bike companies can spec their bikes w fox as OEM and keep that ever important bike weight low.
