Point: Suspension Lockout Levers Have Made Bikes Worse
@privateer-wbc: The Tantrum works really well. I never ride my other bikes anymore. But unfortunately you can't buy one.

Review: Fox Live Valve Suspension
TANTRUM does this and possibly more, without the electronics, and without the price premium.

Hutchinson's Real-Time Tire Pressure Monitor - Eurobike 2018
I like it. I check my pressure every time I ride - which involves adding air even if the pressure was already correct because I bled a bit checking. This would save time. A bit pricey, but better that competitors, and you don't need them on all your bikes. I'd just put it on the one I ride most.

Ryan Leech On How the Risk Paradox Affects Mountain Bikers
I broke my neck last season. I know 3 other riders who have done the same. But in all of these cases, we were not taking risks. It was during a lull in the ride, or the end, where you aren’t paying attention, chatting with your buds and suddenly you are over the bars. I broke my ribs a few years ago. Was on a challenging ride just before a week long riding trip. I said to myself 'take it easy, don’t hurt yourself before the trip!’. I slowed down and my mind wandered to what to make for dinner, front tire rolled on a baby head and I fell on to a sharp rock. Now I’m back on the bike. I’m not 100% physically, and I’m trying to force myself to ride at no more than 80%. But we can’t ride challenging things lackadaisically! You have to pay attention and get the adrenalin flowing. I am wrestling with how to tackle this as I continue riding. Avoiding risky obstacles is one thing, but there are also the obstacles that don’t seem risky and require extra attention. To get the focus, you have to be pushing a little bit. Hard to find the balance.

Review: Milkit Booster - Tubeless Tire Inflation Reservoir
How does it allow one to "check, ...., and top off their tubeless sealant without dismounting their tires"?
