Review: Manitou Mezzer Expert Fork
@bansaiman: rebound on Mezzer Expert has the smaller rebound piston and tube screwed into the stanchion (kind of a half-cartridge), so it's similar to Mattoc Pro. No HBO for Mezzer Expert.

Reynolds Announces New XC Wheel Line
"The first option includes our Reynolds/I9 proprietary Blacklabel Hydra hubs...The second option is a limited-edition model featuring the Ringlé Super Bubba X hub..." I read that as standard build is the I9 Hydra and limited edition is Ringle Super Bubba X; two different hubs without driver compatibility.

YT Releases 24" & 26" Mini Jeffsys for Kids
@Svinyard, there's some close-up pictures on YT's website that show the non-Schrader air-side top cap, so YT spec'd the Expert Air spring, not the single-chamber TS Air.

Video: 8 New Suspension Forks - Sea Otter 2019
@hitarpotar: the blacked out fork on Manitou's Instagram was for the new JUNIT 20" and 24" forks launched at Sea Otter (https://www.pinkbike.com/news/hayes-junit-component-range-for-youth-shredders-sea-otter-2019.html). Still nothing official on release date for Mezzer.

@Chingus-Dude: in this case, ABS+ is just shorthand for Absolute Plus

Tech Randoms - Nove Mesto World Cup XC
@hamncheez: That's not the case. The arch, front or back, is developed to fit around a given tire size and has zero effect on ride height. Ride height is predominantly driven by tire size, crown thickness, crown-to-tire clearance at bottom-out, and fork travel. Since tire size is set outside of the fork design and travel is travel, the only numbers that really fluctuate are the crown thickness and crown clearance. The ride heights of production forks reflect that; for example, looking at 29er Boost 130mm-travel forks, the Mattoc has an A2C of 539mm, Fox 34 is at 537mm, and the RS Pike is at 541mm. I'd guess that trend follows through on most other forks as well. Manitou put out a tech document about the reverse arch and the ride height thing was one of the common misconceptions: https://www.manitoumtb.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Manitou_Reverse-Arch_revC.pdf

Drones and Wearables - The Tech You Need To Know About From CES 2016
@abzillah, you are correct that the FAA is now requires registration of all drones above 0.5lbs but anyone can register their drone online with the FAA; there's no pilot's tests or any other special shenanigans. The registration is free if done before 21Jan but, after that, it'll be only $5. The cool part is that your registration number applies to all drones you own (the same registration number goes on all of them). This is only for personal use drones though; if you do intend on using the drone for commercial use (including independent filmmaking and/or freelance photography), the registration's a bit more complex. Wired has a really good article about it here: http://www.wired.com/2016/01/how-to-register-your-drone/

2011 Fox fork for sale, Float RL open bath damper, 150mm of travel, 15mm axle, tapered steerer cut to 8 and 1/16th inches. The listed US$180 includes shipping and Paypal fees. However, I am open to reasonable offers and can also knock the price down some for local pickup. I bought the fork in September 2014 from another PB user. I replaced the seals, wipers, o-rings, oil, and Float fluid before assembling the fork to my bike (Giant Reign). The fork sat unused till about April 2015 but, since then, I put about 500 miles on it. This fork has been a solid performer but I no longer need it since recently upgrading to a Pike. As far as appearance, the rider's left stanchion is clean and does not have any scratches or discoloration. As shown in the pictures, the rider's right stanchion is clean except for one set of small scratches about 1/2 way up. The scratches do not affect function and have not created any leaks while riding. Overall, there are some some mild to moderate scratches on the crown and lowers, a moderate-sized paint chip on the outside of the rider's right lower, and some stickers peeling. All damage is cosmetic only and has not affected function. Please take a look at the pictures for further details. UPDATE (4/27/2016): the fork travel can currently be set at either 140mm or 150mm, depending on which roll pin hole is used for the spring perch (please reference the most recently added photo). Additional holes would need to be drilled into the air spring shaft if you wanted to set the travel for any other length. If you're interested or have any questions, let me know via PB message. Thanks, Kyle
