Is the pictured USD rockshox still a thing?

Shimano Updates 12 Speed Range with Shorter Cage XT Derailleur & New Cranks
So there is a new chainline for bikes designed around single chainring that didn't manage to make room for the chainring. Something seems wrong here.

Tested: Does a Lockout Actually Make Climbing Faster?
You can estimate the energy loss in rough climbs with an excel table. Assuming: hit size distribution, hit geometry, wheel radius, weight distribution. It's easy to then estimate roughly the energy losses due to the horizontal component of he hit. Suspension locked you can take the potential energy to scale the kinetic energy losses Suspension unlocked you need to estimate the dissipated energy (knowing the damping forces) and add a small amount of the potential energy depending on how much your suspensions are moving (50% to 80% of initial potential energy remaining) You'll see that for a single hit, the difference is quite significant, but the hit distribution has quite a dramatic effect on the actual losses when locking the suspension (losses by hits being a fraction of total losses). Actually there is theoretical scenarii where locking the suspension is more beneficial as you can get back quicker some momentum before the next hit, and some where letting the suspension move is a no brainer. You'd need many different measures on different real tracks to have a useful measurement.

Spotted: Trek High Pivot DH Prototype (Yes, It Still Looks Like a Session)
@fluider: rearward axle path isn't the only thing you can seek when putting a pulley. Actually the pictured bike's pivot doesn't seem higher relative to the axle that it would be on a 26" (it's 30-40mm higher than the BB that is 30-40mm lower relative to the axle than on a 26" bike). So this one won't have much rearward travel. But it won't have much forward travel either. Smaller momentum of the smaller wheel is negligible, if even a thing.

They have been there for long. But now that 27" 29" are a thing, and bikes are getting longer, idler pulleys are making more and more sense.

Ninja Mount Launches a GoPro Mount for your Instagram Stories
@micahaalders3: The high price is due to people that will buy it this much. Holding a gopro with FDM parts isn't even a challenge, I did a dozen of parts to film at different angles for different applications, 0 issue even with my shittiest yellow PLA. They all looks ugly tho, you're right about that part.
