Tech Tips: How to Keep Your Suspension Moving in the Winter
@UtahBrent: I added some flaps to mine with some of that heat and mold plastic sheet I got off Amazon. https://www.pinkbike.com/photo/16729363/

Video: This is the Fastest* Bike in the World
@BenPea: I would argue that the terminal velocity of a dude taped to a bike is probably far less than the 183.93 mph. Edit: Nevermind, If you're including the initial forward velocity from the plane then you would be correct.

Here's a New Standard We Should Get Behind - Taipei Cycle Show 2018
Not to mention, any anodizing on the steer tube would be done before assembly, making it difficult to accurately align when pressing into the crown. Laser etching after assembly would definitely be the quickest and most accurate method.

Review: Industry 9 Trail 270 Wheels
Yeah, they just blast some Skrillex in the shop. When the drop hits, the A2 steel explodes into a bunch of little high precision pawls... It's science.

Review: Fox 36 GRIP2 vs. RockShox Lyrik RC2 Fork
@Ziph: FWIW. The only RS Pike I ever owned developed a creaky CSU. Same exact creak developed on my friend's Pike. Both of us got the CSU replaced under warranty. While mine was in for warranty repair I picked up a used 36 so I could keep riding. When I got the warranty Pike back I sold it and kept the 36. I'm on my second Fox 36 now (sold my last bike) and haven't had one creak yet. Neither Fox or RS are perfect in this regard, and either should be willing to replace/repair under warranty (once a licensed service center has confirmed the creak is coming from the CSU and not a janky headset or something).

The Cutaway Special - Interbike 2018
@Sardine: Watts are units of power. Torque is a measure of force. The difference in this case being rpm. A car idles at 600-800 rpm. Human pedals at 1/10th that, even less in very high torque situations. Also peak torque is much higher than average torque for pedaling a bicycle. It is peak torque that will cause things to break. Imagine a 170 lb rider starting on a steep hill. Assume they stand on one pedal with ~90% of their bodyweight. So force on the pedal is 153 lbs. Crank arm length is 175 mm = 6.9 in = .575 ft.) , so torque at the crank is 153*.575= ~88 ft lbs. Assume a 32t chainring and 50t rear cog which gives a gear ratio of (1.5625), the torque seen at the rear hub is 88*1.5625 = 137.5 ft lbs. That is comprable to a small car.

@spaceofades: Might as well just carry a spare bike on your back, you know, just to be safe.

Bike Checks & Tech From the Pits - EWS La Thuile 2018
Definitely a typo/mistake in the article. The rear rotor clearly says "CENTERLINE 200" on it. Which makes sense given the Hightower LT comes with 180 post mount in rear. Front is also 200 mm rotor in the pic because, again, Lyrik comes with 180 post mount. Add an adapter to a 180 post mount and you get a 200/203. Also can tell the rotors are 200 just by the profile near the bolt circle.

First Look: KS Genesys Integrated Dropper Seatpost
@Unrealityshow: When it inevitably fails, you have the option to just replace it with a conventional 31.6 diameter dropper post. Only problem is it will have zero resale value in the used market.
