First Look: DT's New F535 One Fork
I've got a brilliant idea - use a coil spring for the whole stroke ! Has anyone tried this ? (joke - I'm loving my Push coil conversion)

Review: Guerrilla Gravity Smash
Yeah or the travesty they call "climbing trails" . The first time I heard that term I got really excited, until I realized they meant the opposite of what I first assumed.

The Privateer Episode 2: Testing Begins & It’s Time to Train Like a Pro
Good videos although I would have liked to get more into the details of the training program. I'm a little jealous as I think its much easier to build fitness than talent, and Adam has the latter. I can train like a pro but it won't make me into an elite level downhiller. Whereas its much more straightforward for a talented guy to backfill his weaknesses with a good training program.

The World's Longest DH Bike: Isak Leivsson's Pole Machine 200 - Fort William World Cup 2018
Yes i always have to convert that values before they mean anything to me. 30 degrees C ? is that comfortable ? Can I go swimming ? Hmm, let's see, 86 degrees oh yeah that's pretty hot. 80 kilos ? Oh yeah, let's see, oh oky so not too heavy. The one that kills me is "he's 1.87 meters tall". I'm like uh...Which reminds me, do guys in the rest of the world brag in metric ? That's like an Aerosmith song, "She was talking about my big 20cm"

I want to buy the rear triangle from a 13-16 Enduro 29'er. Tell me what you want for it and I'm sure we can work something out. Size doesn't matter in this context. I'm not worried about the bearings I will replace them. I need the seat stay most of all in case you have a damaged one

Review: Ibis Ripmo
I have been running 51 offset on a 67.5 degree HA for the last several years. I tried a 46 offset recently. First of all, the difference is pretty minor. Before anyone runs off and starts buying new forks remember its only a 1/4" at most, its not a big change. On this relatively steep bike, it was worse - sometimes felt like the front wheel wanted to tuck under on tighter turns, overall a little bit more twitchy and steep. I then tried both 51 and 46 on a bike with 25mm more reach (and 25mm shorter stem) and a 65 HA. There, I preferred the 46 offset - not so much because i could detect any real major difference in steering response but mostly because it brought the front hub in a little closer, I've found I'm not a fan of having the front axle so far out in from of me (good for steep DH, but not maneuverable and playful in other situations, especially tech climbing). I'm of the opinion that hyping up fork offset is mostly about market differentiation, and that we could all settle on one offset and probably be pretty happy. While I'm sensitive to some things, I'm not sensitive to others, so YMMV. I've also been confused about how one person will say it increases trail (which it does) which should have a similar effect to increasing trail from HA, but then the next person says it will speed things up a bit especially on slack bikes.
