Bike Check: Dan Atherton's Prototype 29er DH Bike
I'm right between two springs at the moment too. The coil struggle is real.

Carbon Chainrings, Clever Tools, and a New Smart Trainer - Taipei Cycle Show 2019
@neimbc: That's a sintered carbon-ceramic compound, abbreviated to 'carbon' brakes. The carbon brake rotors that have been released for MTB have quote literally just been cut out of basic 2x2 weave CFRP plate/sheet, like the chainring in the article, which for a braking surface is never going to be good.

@ROOTminus1: not just the English; we can't leave the Scots off the hook either with places ending in ~burgh.

Day 1 Randoms - Core Bike 2019
Its not just you. My mate's just built up a carbon one and it's nowhere near as pretty as the alu. I feel the same about the new Nomad too. It looks way slicker in alu tubes.

Yes. And Bicester is pronounced Bister. I can begin to understand why the yanks simplified things.

Tech Tips: How to Keep Your Suspension Moving in the Winter
For those of you who keep your bikes in the house, just because your sag is correct straight out the (warm) door doesn't mean it'll be correct on your (cold) ride. Let the bike cool down to outdoor temps before finalising your pressures. The same goes for your tyres.

Handlebar Width vs Handling - Are Your Bars Too Wide?
My mates take the mickey out of my 800s saying they're daft, but I argue that I'm very broad shouldered compared to them and that I've never felt more comfortable on the bike. I recently had my grip width measured and sure enough, 800mm... Go figure.

Video: Tackling Sydney's Streets on a Trials Bike
Check out Ali C's 'Inspired Hex first ride' video for a great insight into the differences. For spins and stuff, 24in, but for hops and gaps, 26in seems better.

Way too restrictive at the knees for trials riding unfortunately.
