Ban the Berms? – Opinion
I have a theory that may stir this boiling kettle: The more funding a trail project has, the more the contracted builders will use machines to do the grading and corner work. Unless they are f-ing shredders like the boiz at Empire Of Dirt, it will end up like Alsea falls in Oregon, a pile of berms and rollers with no sense for them to even be there. More funding = overbuilt, unnecessary trail features and highway width.

2018 Fox 36 - First Ride
@Loamhuck: I just bought a BOS Deville 140 to match my cane creek coil IL rear. The fork is probably the smoothest and best feeling air fork I have ever been on, being an open bath. However, I still feel like the coil rear shock tracks the ground twice as fast. The fork feels slightly over damped at full open compression, and bottoms out if ridden aggressively and front heavy (which is totally fine in my book). It does a good job of preserving geometry though and stays high in the travel on the steeps. It is good but not great, and I have some friends that do machine work, soooo, I am looking to source a coil spring for conversion. FYI: my 2014 Marz. RC# ti evo v2 feels lightyears ahead of the BOS, but has about 2 pounds and 30mm more travel. Anyone out there doing coil conversions on air forks with good results?

Your Trail’s Future May Depend On IMBA's New Leader
The IMBA should have two top priorities in my book: 1: Lobby in Washington for all types of trail access for MTB's throughout the USA. 2: Support the small local trail organizations that are actually doing the work and risking their necks by securing Insurance policies that are better options than what is currently on the market. When IMBA's group insurance policy for the many clubs and orgs that utilized it was dropped, our small organization searched for five years to find coverage. We received no help whatsoever from IMBA. When we reached out for help, IMBA wanted us to become a chapter club and pay them 60% of our membership dues before they would give us access to their great wealth of information. Thankfully, the gods of mountain biking came through for us and we found an inside guy (a mountain biker) at a commercial insurance outfit here in the northwest. Insurance for small clubs continues to be a huge hurdle in the fight to keep local sanctioned trails, and the topic needs more attention.

Cane Creek Introduces Fork - Exclusive First Ride
@rivercitycycles: I've put a few rides in on my new CCDBIL Coil after a recent purchase. In a word: TITS. I know many riders that won't touch their shit with a ten foot pole based on the whole OEM inline air failure. They are going to be fighting for every customer with their air products for the next ten years because of that. When they get it right (most of the time), their stuff is hard to beat.

Bike Yoke Cable Conversion for Reverb Dropper Posts
@WAKIdesigns: Gen 1 sucked. Gen 2 and 3 are way more reliable, simple, and easy to bleed the air out of the system. It is really pretty easy to rebuild, with the help of an oil level gauge and a soft jaw from sram. It just needs a rebuild every 200 hrs of use to relieve cavitation, (like anything hydraulic).
