Pinkbike Predictions: Who Could Win the Third Round of the Enduro World Cup?
Łukasik recently did a casual 2k meters ride in my neighbourhood with 8 KOMs and 5 top fives. I would say he is quite strong.

Review: DVO Topaz 3 Air Shock
@Triconian: I agree that bladder pressure is a bad way to tune shock performance, but it has some influence on shock action. I is true that it acts like a spring, not like a damper.

Review: DVO Topaz 3 Air Shock
During compression not all displaced oil can go to rebound side because the volume of the shaft, thus the amount of oil equal to shaft volume goes through the base valve to the piggyback compressing the air in the ifp. So yes, the ifp pressure influences compression force.

First Look: Bluegrass' New Vanguard Lightweight Full Face Helmet
I tried to buy an FF for my 57.5cm head and it was a NIGHTMARE. Almost no reviews talk about the number of ACTUAL shell sizes helmets have. Typically manufacturers make shortcuts and make 2 real shell sizes, typically the smaller one in S-M and larger is L-XL. This means that the size gap between those shells is big and if you happen to be between M and L you are f*cke or buy a helmet too loose. And if your helmet does not fit right, you can stick all those safety rating in your *ss.It took me like 2 weeks of buying/sending to find something which fits me, not because I have a strange head shape, but because there are sizing gaps in FF helmets.

Title MTB Releases New Connect Flat Pedal
Apparently there are people who like to "feel the spindle" :P But seriously, you are 100% right, I think the culprit are the customers who seek the lowest profile available. I am also guilty of this, but after 2 pairs of thin pedals I gave up, a few mm does not make any difference at all, but crappy design does.

Check Out: Mons Royale's SS 23 Apparel, A Tiny Torque Wrench & Key Lime Pie Protein Powder
I envy everyone who can wear plain safety glasses on a bike. For me, their optical quality is subpar and I can see all the defects and distortions, maybe this is a side effect of 10 years of doing photography. They also typically fog like hell. Tried them twice, could not ride in this sh*t, sorry.

Video: How Bad Can They Be!? We Review Each Other's Personal Bikes
@Schlobo: This, every low end bike build comes with this crap, most probably sram gives it for free... Last week my 13 year old son tried his mother's bike with Guide R and he was so pissed off and he weights only 45kg and brakes are bled properly. He has shimano deore on his bike (but with larger rotors) and the difference is night and day.
