First Look: Formula's Prototype Dual Crown Enduro Fork & New Lightweight Brakes
Now not all enduro bikes can accept a dual crown without voidind the warranty and risking damage to the sides of the head tube in case the stachions come slamming in it (crash and so on). My bike sure can't: manufactuer said so in an email... Have 2 36s that's both been creaking (29" 170mm). I was considering a boxxer 180 (same AC). But can't... So I let some Loctite 290 seep in at the stanchion-csu and csu-steerer interfaces and it seems to have gotten rid of the creaking on one of them. Forks seems to feel more "stout" too (though probably a placebo effect of the now silenced csu).

Tubolito's New MTB PSENS Tubes Have a Built-In Pressure Sensor
@won-sean-animal-chin: I was running Maxxis EXO / EXO+ DHR and DHF on a SB150, Stans race and Vittoria AirLiner (both front and back but superfluous up front so I later removed the insert up front and went with a DH casing instead of EXO). Both on RaceFace ARC carbon 31 and later on Zipp 3Zero Moto. It's comfortable to run low(er) pressures tubeless with insert but it actually began to feel too soft when pushing hard in corners. So I started cautiously with tubolito up front and Assegai DH. Worked perfectly. So I went with the back too in a DHR EXO+. Both the "plus" size tubolitos (the non-plus size really is too small for 2.4-2.5" tyres and above). As a result, the plus size tubos don't stretch as much and might then endure more abuse. Granted, the Zipp rims can take more of a beating than lighter weight carbon rims (in which case sticking with tubeless + insert might be preferable) (PS: no I'm not a dentist, just buy stuff only on discount and prioritize biking above all else.. very cheap car, very cheap apt, and so on...)

Tubolito's New MTB PSENS Tubes Have a Built-In Pressure Sensor
If you went through the expense of buying these for the chip, you'd probably be wise riding them as-is first and give them a try. Been on tubeless since the very first Eclipse tubeless kits and I have now had my first season on tubolitos. Not a single puncture with DH tyres (better feel and damping of the DH carcass - though ymmv - and weight-wise about the same as enduro tyres + insert + sealant).

Tubolito's New MTB PSENS Tubes Have a Built-In Pressure Sensor
Surely, when tubeless, the sealant plastic bottle is worth at least 2-3 tubolitos in mass. And I'd use at least one bottle a season between tyre swaps, punctures and sealant refreh. Been riding tubolitos front and back for a season and have yet to puncture, so it seems (and is advertised) more durable than your regular tubes and thus might not get thrown away as fast. Though, I'm sure it can be punctured and then the chip might make it hard(er) to recycle...

10 MTB Goggles Ridden & Rated
Availability of clear perforated/vented double lense should be one of the criteria of ranking or pros/cons. Too many brands do not offer it. It is the most basic and effective lens to avoid any kind of fogging. 100% and some Oakleys provide that

Video: Raaw Madonna V2 - First Look & Ride
The distributor of the Sentry (gooutdoors.co.uk) does not ship internationally anymore. And they did/do not zero-rate the orders (the VAT is not excluded, which is fine for EU countries at least for a little while more, but definitely sucks for non-EU countries to have to double pay VAT). That is, you would have to go to a physical GO shop in the UK, get a VAT form, and somehow claim the VAT back at the airport on your way back home....

The Ingenious Project - Gustav Gullholm's Super Clean Custom Scott Genius
answer found there: https://www.pinkbike.com/news/building-the-worlds-lightest-29ers.html and quote: "the fork was stripped of paint, then the lowers and crown were sanded and polished. The magnesium lowers require some maintenance to stay shiny, it depends a lot on what environment the fork sees, but to stay shiny, a polish at least once a month is required."
