Field Test: Scott Ransom
@ZSchnei: changing the head angle by a degree won't change the bikes climbing ability.

Video: How Kevin Bacon's Quicksilver Got Me Into Mountain Biking
Quick Silver made me a bike courier too! The store owner was a dick though, mountain bikes suck for that job.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
@bluechair84: Fair enough I love them but you don't have to use them. Regarding the other stuff, yes the air pressure gives your tires shape but cushcore adds support past a certain point. 10 psi is nowhere near enough to support a tire sidewall in a berm but 18-20 is getting there. When you have cushcore 10psi gives the tire shape and the chushcore stops the sidewall from folding over past the insert. If that doesn't make sense go to the cushcore site and look at the explanations/diagrams they give and it should be a bit more clear. BTW on bumpy terrain low tire pressures are actually more efficient! Weird but true and worth checking out.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
@bluechair84: I'm sure at some point it would, but from what I've seen the only real damage to them comes from pinching caused by a high impact event. They are basically made of the same foam as sneaker soles so that should give you an idea of how they wear.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
@bluechair84: I'm assuming you have not used cushcore then. You pay a bit with the weight but it completely eliminates tire squirm. For the record I'm a middle of the pack enduro racer and I weigh about 180.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
@olslash: I haven't had to yet but I would use the same strategy I used on my old tubeless setup. Remove the portion of the tire with a hole in it from the rim. Dry it out with a lighter. Cover the hole with duct tape. Use the lighter to warm the duct tape and seal it to the tire. The only thing that is different is that you have to start by pushing the entire bead and insert into the centre channel of the rim first. You will need metal levers, duct tape (wrap a bit around your bars) a lighter, strong hands and about 20 minutes.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
@Endurbro404: I have, actually I did it today! (valve issue not anything cushcore related) It is unbearably squirmy. TBH you don't really want to ride it flat, but you can do it and you don't have to stress about wrecking your tire and rims, which is actually pretty nice.

I weigh 180 and I find 10 psi front and rear is pretty awesome you should give it a try.
