Check Out: A Tiny Electric Pump, Sunglasses, Ergonomic Grips, & More
My experience with the Topeak dual action pump is that if it gets muddy, the seals fail and it stops working. Best to keep it clean in a pack.

Intense Recluse$1800 USD
Selling my 2018 Intense Recluse Foundation that I've owned since new. Significantly upgraded over the years. It's a great all-rounder that pedals well and is very fun and agile. Perfect for Galbraith. Overall the bike is in good mechanical condition and ready to ride. Details: Shimano XT 11-speed drivetrain with 11-46 cassette, 30T chainring. Shimano 4-piston brakes with metallic pads, 180mm rotors. 770mm Renthal carbon handlebars, 50mm Raceface stem. 150mm Raceface dropper post with oneup remote. Rockshox Yari fork upgraded with a Charger 2.1 damper, SKF wiper seals, and Debonair 150mm air spring, making it on par with a Lyrik Ultimate. Rockshox Monarch RL rear shock is practically brand new since I previously had swapped it out for a different one. Maxxis EXO+ 3C tires are set up tubeless with a brand new 27.5x2.5 Minion DHF front tire and a 27.5x2.4 Dissector with Tannus tire insert on the rear wheel. Rear rim has some flat spots but it holds air and is totally rideable. 31 lbs as pictured. Also included is a 32T chainring, shock pump, and a spare derailleur hanger. Pedals not included.

How to Choose the Right Size Mountain Bike in 2023
@CleanZine: That's not what Seb discovered though. He said the bike size doesn't affect how fast he can ride.

Interview: Rocksled Suspension's Wild New Linkage Fork
Hell yeah, I feel like there is so much untapped potential in linkage forks. Could probably be significantly lighter if everything was packaged into the left side. Might just need a yoke on the shock.

Short or Long-Travel: Which Is The Best All-Round MTB?
TLDR; trail tires are generally faster uphill and downhill. Snark aside, good write up Seb.

Field Test: Ibis Exie - Ready for Your Next XC Race
It's all about weight balance to keep traction and power through corners. I'm annoyed that the "steep" HTA is listed as a con when the review actually praised the handling characteristics.

Review: Delium Rugged Tires Cut Costs, Not Performance
Cool idea, the only challenge I see is the multi-durometer layered construction could mess up the accuracy.

Tech Briefing: Pricey Brake Pads, Kids Lids, Chunky Inserts & More - July 2022
If anything makes sense to be e-bike specific, it's drivetrain products. I'm just happy there's finally a lube to keep up with my power output.
