5 Things We Learned From the 2022 Albstadt World Cup
@Clink1983: The problem is that the industry has shown us that they haven't figured out how to do "proper" pressfit tolerance control

aaaannnd that's why you don't do jumps with a cross-wind

Pinkbike Primer: Everything You Need to Know Before the Petrópolis XC World Cup 2022
PST = Pacific Standard Time. This is different from PDT = Pacific Daylight Time, which is what we're using now with Daylight Savings turned on. Easier to just say PT for Pacific Time, and same for all the other time zones

@nicholasvm: All the good trails in the Bay Area are unsanctioned thanks to the equestrian mafia and nimbyism. Everyone is terrified their local spot will be the next to get dozed or bring the park rangers out with their ticket books. It's quite sad really.

Spotted: EXT's New Air Shock
@rodeostu: Regarding altitude - changes in ambient pressure affect gauge pressure. Gauge pressure is what you are measuring on your shock pump. Gauge pressure is directly related to spring rate. Regarding temperature - try checking your tire pressures with a digital gauge on a cold morning, then again later in the day after it's warmed up considerably. You'll see a 1-3 psi difference probably. I say tires because the air lost to the gauge in a tire is small relative to the total air volume when compared to a shock and shock pump, but the same applies. Regarding people saying "no one can feel that" - get a digital shock gauge. Do back to back testing and change 2-3 psi in your fork or 3-5 psi in your shock. You will 100% notice the difference. Make sure to equalized the positive and negative springs my cycling a few times before removing the gauge, and lift the wheel off the ground to get an accurate reading

Spotted: EXT's New Air Shock
@eatabagofdicks808: FOX: At sea level, all objects have 1 atm (or 14.696 psi) of pressure acting on them, as measured on an absolute scale. When you pressurize an air shock to 200 psi, what you’re really reading is gauge pressure which is a pressure differential; the pressure difference between ambient pressure and pressure inside the shock. On an absolute scale, if you were at sea level, the pressure inside the shock is 214.696 psi and the pressure outside the shock is 14.696 psi, a difference of 200 psi. As you go up in altitude this ambient pressure decreases. Going from sea level to an elevation of 10,000 feet reduces the ambient pressure to 10.196 psi, a reduction of 4.5 psi. The gauge pressure in the shock is now 204.5 psi, which is 214.696 – 10.196
