Pinkbike Poll: Would You Buy an Enduro Bike With a Dual-Crown Fork?
@adamsemmens: I also have a G1 and I can second this. I have a lighter trail bike too and a few mins into pedaling the heavier geometron I don't really notice the difference once I get moving. You just get used to it. I still pick the trail bike if I am going to be doing a significant amount of hard climbing, but otherwise I don't care about the heavier bike.

I have an excellent condition Cane Creek Helm fork. Air only. 44mm offset, boost, set at 160mm travel (can be adjusted internally to 140mm or 150mm). Used partially last season, but my enduro bike didnt get a lot of use. Built up an experiment bike to enter some races and take to the bike park but covid ruined all that. Never raced, ridden at Sun peaks only 3x. Decided to go a different way with my bikes this year. Fork is used but comes in original box with all parts, instruction manual, etc. Excellent condition. Ride wrapped from day one. There is some standard Kamloops dust that worked it's way under some parts of the tape's corners. See photos. I can leave the ride wrap on or can remove it and the fork will be mint. Steerer tube is (barely) cut to 225mm. Currently installed to a XXL frame with a massive head tube, so this will fit on any frame out there. Will ship anywhere in Canada but buyer is responsible for shipping fees. $800 obo.

Video: MTB on a Budget - Where to Spend VS Where to Save on Clothing
Have to chime in about Ryders. They're good sometimes...but they're also bad. My favourite riding sunglasses of all time are the antifog version of the Nelson. I have two pairs of them. Never have fogged up once. Look great, fit great, and don't have any scratches on them at all. But every other pair of glasses I have tried from them are absolute trash. I've tried the Seventh, Main, Nimby, Calibre, and Face models...all garbage. Broken frames, fogging up like crazy, lenses scratch after just a few rides. And customer support isn't great. I've managed to weasel a crash replacement 50% discount on a set that broke on me, but that's it. Any other issues I've had just get passed around through email loops that don't go anywhere. I wish I had just taken the money I spent on all those failures and bought one pair of quality glasses from another brand and never thought of it again.

Ask Pinkbike: Tire Casing Choices, DH Bike Wheel Swaps, Knee Pads Picks, & Clipless Tips
I can't remember if the mallet E's have pins or not. But if they do, remove them or back them out halfway. The extra grip into the rubber of your shoe will make them hard to clip in and out of. And in my experience the pins aren't that necessary. I have lost all them on my clipless pedals over a season of smashing them into rocks. Works just fine without them.
