Review: X-Fusion Trace 36 HLR Fork
@NotNamed: Got a 26x2.4 Trail King in there without much hassle admittedly the Kaiser is a touch wider/squarer on the shoulders and if you're on 650b then it's going to be tight. IIRC the Vengeance was never intended to be a 650b fork was it?

Mike vs. Mike: The Clipless Pedal Debate - Video
Why don't more clipless pedals utilise a twisting cage like the m647 dx pedals? The cage isn't there for grip, it's there to make the cleat engage instantly by stomping on the pedal. Push down vertically, the front of the cleat pops up, engages and the back snaps in. I believe the dmr vtwin has a floating cage as well but can't think of any others that do. IMHO a static cage on a clipless pedal is pointless.

Does It Matter Where Your Bike Was Built? - Pinkbike Poll
Of all of my bikes only one is far eastern manufacture. The bmx is American made (2004 standard sta500), the trials bike Russian made (2006 triton deema) and the trail bike is American made (2008 intense 5.5). The commuter slag (2004 santacruz chameleon) is made in tawain and is no worse than any of the others. In fact, the intense is the worst of the lot due to slight misalignment of the upper pivot mount. The rest are all pretty much perfect boutique frames. To me it doesn't matter where the frame is made, however I do like to support small industry and stuff made by hand, by craftsmen :)

BETD Acquire Middleburn Cycle Components
Great news to hear that they're being kept alive! I still run RS7s on my intense 5.5, hanging of a Hope square taper titanium BB - New standards? Hah! Hopefully the narrow wide direct mount rings will still be a thing.

Pinkbike Poll: How Many Suspension Adjustments Do You Actually Need?
@patmcc: I bought this the other night, it is excellent with regards to damper design and operation.

Pinkbike Poll: How Many Suspension Adjustments Do You Actually Need?
I'm only going to all the trouble to mess around with the forks because I can and I'm an engineer who likes fiddling with things. The more settings the better imho, I thrive on learning new stuff all the time so suspension theory and design is a great subject to learn!
