Woah there, @mammal. A different photographer took that picture - I tracked it down and added that in.

It's for the AXS dropper post. There's another lever on the same side of the bars for the suspension.

MTB on a Budget: Where to Spend & Where to Save on Bike Parts
@Davec85, secondhand parts are definitely worth buying - that fact is mentioned multiple times in the article. I don't recommend buying secondhand handlebars at all, simply because there's no way to determine how much use / abuse they've seen. A snapped bar is one of the worst things that can happen on a ride - personally, I don't think it's worth the risk, especially considering that a new alloy bar isn't crazy expensive.

MTB on a Budget: Where to Spend & Where to Save on Bike Parts
That's not really the point - the intent wasn't to highlight the absolute cheapest options. It's meant to provide information for people looking to purchase either a complete new bike, or considering upgrading certain components on their existing bike. Complete bikes are typically cheaper than purchasing every part individually, especially if you go consumer direct. And of course, used will always be the cheapest option.

Review: 2021 Guerrilla Gravity Gnarvana
I'd put the Enduro over both of them when it comes to downhill performance - that's still at the top of my list in that category. The extra bit of travel combined with the low center of gravity make it work extremely well in rough, choppy terrain. I do wish the seat tube angle was steeper on the Enduro. It climbs very well, but it has a 644mm top tube length compared to 623mm on the Titan and 625mm on the Gnarvana. And yes, on the Titan it felt like there was more travel in reserve for bigger hits compared to the Gnarvana, but keep in mind that the Titan I tested had a Float X2 - the ramp up of an air spring vs coil, plus that X2's generous bottom out bumper contribute to that feeling.

C’mon, a little poetic license never hurt anybody - there’s only so many ways you can write the same phrase over and over again.
