Bike Check: KJ Sharp's RAAW DH
No dropper post and no 52t cog helps DH bikes to be a bit less heavier.

carbon fiber itself isn't a polymer afaik, so they added a layer or so of another fiber that helps the carbon in some way.

Probably some concept art, like the pink bike's bar that isn't on the model you can buy.

SRAM Quietly Launches New DB8 Mineral Oil Brakes
@abgrant: That video is a joke. "science!" yeah but once contextualized or just with numbers, everything in it is false or really exaggerated. No context, no numbers, no proof, no idea of how they had their conclusions, basically the opposite of science.

Video: Marin Builds Duncan Shaw a Custom Trials Bike
@jimmydubya: If you want to ride a trial bike as intended and have fun with it, you need 2 to 6 months of training basic techniques, before really starting to have some "freedom" and begin the real fun. I think those early months are what prevents trial riding to become more popular. It's not as easy as many other form of mountain biking, where you can have fun nearly right away.

Spotted: Mondraker is Testing a Summum DH Bike with a Bolt-On Idler
@lkubica: I'd doubt the antisquat would drop to low values The early travel on a Summum provides quite a bit of chain growth. That idler also isn't that high. It probably gives a saner bike in the first half of the travel.

How to Accurately Calculate What Spring Rate You Need
@Dougal-SC: That would mean you are setting you bike on an average response thru the whole travel. The first 20-30% of the suspension stroke is representative enough of the useful stroke for sag to be an efficient method. It doesn't give you a perfect rate, but you can either buy the closest spring and call it a day, or adjust air pressure in the future fore fine tuning. Bonus it gives you a coherent tuning for all the bikes, more or less the progression of the bike or spring/damping curve Frequency tuning would require extra maths, would require extra basis of reference for each amount of suspension travel, for a result that would be less than 10% different. You're probably the only one doing that in the mtb world. Frequency tuning is helpful in some motor vehicles because you have some frequencies that matters, like around 1hz for seated human comfort, or your tire own natural frequency, and so on. On a mountain bike, I have a hard time seing any benefit from looking at frequencies.
