Reader Story: How Much Traction Does a New Tire Buy You?
I don't know how you'd control for it but I brake until I get some slippage and then back off a little, regardless of tyre, so I suspect I'd get roughly the same amount of slip on all tyres but I'd be getting more traction (maybe) on the new tyre. Could you measure front wheel deceleration as well to see how much you were managing to slow down? I also ride tyres to way more bald than the old tyre in this vid..

Review: Rocky Mountain Slayer C50
99.9% of mountain bikers may not have use for monster trucks (I think the figure is probably closer to 70%, if you ever see how busy the alps or bike parks are) - but that minority is the core of the pinkbike readership. If you want to read reviews of XC bikes go to singletrackworld, mbr, bikeradar or one of the many other websites that tailor to that kind of riding

Prevelo Release New Bravo Kids Dirt Jumper
the market for a 16" dj bike must be truely tiny. My kids grew out of their 16" bikes aged 4, at which point they were getting exactly zero air.

Video: Are Sedona Trails Really That Dangerous?
Triple h is my go to combo for riding sedona (British, but work for a company that ships me out to Phoenix pretty frequently). The specs dont look too tough but it's a massive day out

Review: DVO Onyx SC D1 Enduro Fork
why don't they offer different neg springs for people of different weights? It seems like it'd be a relatively easy way to get the fork working for more people?

Is This the New Enduro? Specialized Patent Shows 170mm Bike With UBB Suspension Design
I think the reason the links are braced in front of the sear tube might be because there isn't an axle running through the seat tube, instead the bearings are just mounted on the side? Maybe

Field Test Review: 2024 Pole Onni - In the Eye of the Beholder
Couldn't you just fit some more volume spacers in the shock? With a slightly lower static pressure that would soften the initial stroke and increase bottom out resistance

Interview: Telemetry & Suspension Setup Questions With World Cup Techs
The suggestion of electronic sus on a dh bike.. surely it'd be relatively easy to pop a gps chip in the brain and have a shock that is tuned differently for different parts of the course. Firm compression out of the gate and on the motorway, nice and fast rebound and compression on the root garden, etc

Field Test Review: 2024 Commencal Meta 5 SX - Supercross for a Reason
I wonder if the frame was designed around a shock with a different/no piggyback and plays better in that scenario. A lot of these have either olins or cheaper (non-pg) rockshox shocks which maybe clear a bottle?
