Review: Dainese's Updated Enduro Knee Guards - Second Time's the Charm
The Dainese Trailskins are pretty good. As long as the fit is right for you (wide upper, narrow underside) they won‘t slide and feel like they aren‘t there (until you need them, then they are quite efficient). But try befire you buy...

Review: Michelin's Wild Enduro Tires Deliver Tons of Traction
Magi-X ist a bit of very soft rubber on top of a rather hard base while Gum-X is soft(but harder than Magi-X) on top of a not that hard base. At least on the Wild Enduros. Having had both (even changed mid run, girlfriend running one, me the other compound and swapping wheels to test) I found: - The Magi-X needs a lot more commitment to really shine, you will find the Gum-X to be mire forgiving if you don‘t go all out - The Gum-X has more grip on wet roots, the Magi-X is better on wet rocks. In the dry, see above.

Video: The Finer Points of Loris Vergier's Bike Setup in 'Between Two Puzzlers'
I remember someone in the german forum making a test with a fork without oil seal/dust wiper and foam ring standing upside down. There are two types of bushings that are/were used: regular bushings and bushings with slots. Without slots the oil doesn’t even arrive at the foam rings as long as the fork isn’t moved a lot. Most bushings today aren’t slotted. I guess the Fox guys tested that too...

Video: The Gnarliest Enduro Race Section?
@JesseMelamed: So I could stand inside of the tape in your race run at a diffcult section if some guy by my side puts a camera in front of my face?

Ask Pinkbike: A Slippery Wheel, A Used Bike that's Too Good to Be True and the Elusive Alloy DH 29er
@TheRaven: Have you looked at the direct sales brand’s specs? For example the Canyon Strive for 2,600$ vs a Transition Patrol build for 4,000$: Both GX Eagle, Lyrik with a Race Face cockpit. Differences are Guide vs Code (+Patrol), Monarch + vs DPX (+Patrol), DT Wheelset vs e13 rims on Novatec hubs (+Strive), KS post vs Reverb (+Strive), Frames are both well made (in my opinion the Strive is even better made). So no shitty parts, just (partially) shitty service. On the other hand, I waited for a new rear end under warranty from Transition for 3 months...

Pinkbike Poll - Do You Enjoy Working On Your Own Bike?
What about the option: I do all the work on my bikes, enjoy it (mostly) and do a lot more bikes if friends need something quicker than the lbs can do it or don’t trust the shop for the task. Last time I wanted to have something done was when I bought a Yeti Carbon frame and wanted the BB already pressed in. Mechanic told me to do it myself with a wood block and a hammer because “that’s what I do anyway”. So now I own more tools than the lbs.
