Review: Bontrager's New Rally WaveCel Helmet
@excavator666: or i could just get a helmet with a d├ęcent clasp. I usually set helmet upside down so i dont get cheek pads dirty. But unlike SOME ppl i build trail so getting dirty is manditory!

First Look: ShockTune is a Free Suspension Setup App
@southoftheborder: in my case it was the stem breaking that caused the crash. Ive also had some stems twist which were tightened as much as possible without causing deformation while landing hip jumps and off camber landings, which is really sketchy and shouldnt happen. these days i run a really burly stem that doesnt twist easily but i hate the process of aligning them. I agree that dual crown forks are a good solution to the problem, and would love to have one on a all mountain bike, its just getting matching suspension performance and geometry thats the main problem to me, also weight and lack of on the fly travel adjust are other downsides. I like your idea of hex steer tubes or something, but then everyone would need a special type of stem, which there would be mass balking about. i truly believe that would be a bummer to not be able to use all the stems that we all have.

First Look: ShockTune is a Free Suspension Setup App
@southoftheborder: I've sheared the direct mount bolts from a marzocchi stem in a 07 marzocchi 888 while riding Goats Gully in Whistler, i was trying to make the bike go one way and the roots and rocks were trying to make it go another. Those only had 2 m5 bolts and a steer pinch bolt though.

Review: Bontrager's New Rally WaveCel Helmet
Fidlock buckles use a magnet. if the magnet gets magnetic soil attracted to it i have found it will not latch properly, which is annoying and a serious safety hazard. It's happened many times in the first few weeks. Considering that many of us mountain bike in the dirt it seems like an obvious weak point. I have been undoing standard buckles for decades using one hand gloves with gloves with no problem. It seems like Fidlock is solving a problem which doesnt exist while creating another problem at increased cost. So where is the benefit?

@nfontanella: there are many friday fails where the stem slips on the handlebar. it is sometimes the reason for crashing rather than the outcome.

Video: Actofive's Steel & Aluminum High Pivot Trail Bike
@Civicowner: My problem with anti-squat is is all those variables, any company can define anti-squat differently, So anti squat isn't a real measurement in a apples to apples way. Yes, i realize that those things contribute to pedal bob. Chain growth with a given chainring size provides a concrete measurement which can contribute to the combating pedal bob / anti-rise. which is why i feel like it is an important metric to have at hand. I am not acting like there is a way to put pedal bob on paper, - dont put words in my mouth ( ; That is a really interesting good point you make about the high pivot bikes, i had not thought of that and appreciate you saying so. That's relevant for sure, but i hadn't thought of it relative to most bikes with such low pivots. That actually sounds like a much better way to tackle bob then with chain growth. I don't know why your bringing up BRAIN but i am familiar and do appreciate the design.
