Ask Pinkbike: Coil Shocks on Trail Bikes, Changing Fork Travel, and Drivetrain Upgrades
Put that exact shock (Cane Creek Inline Coil) on my '17 Scout and it made a huge difference! The rear end became even more bottomless and supple at the same time than it already was with the sir shock. I highly recommend it! I did use the climb switch a little more than with the air, but what's nice about the CC is you can actually put it in the middle and not flip it all the way AND it tightens both rebound and compression where most bikes it just locks compression. A half way on the switch was great for pumping and jumping as well. Did I need it? No! Was it worth it? Yes!

Leatt DBX Core 2.0 Hydration Pack - Review
Leatt Zippers suck. I've had the same thing happen on two different Leatt Backpacks. I loved the criss cross buckle design and the pack sat nicely, but the zippers would break or the seam to the sipper would tear.

Patrol 672 – Review
@orientdave: No disrespect meant. If I'm not mistaken this bike is in fact and Asian bike. Asia being a region not a nationality or snarky term. "Patrol hails from Indonesia, where its success in the Asian marketplace..." If the bike is for you, then great! I only mention that it is an outdated geometry and for the same money you can have a brand new big bike brand bike with awesome "Current" geo for the same price or less... For $200 more I'll take the Trek with a local warranty, great Geo and GX Eagle and a Dropper already fitted...

Patrol 672 – Review
I think when Pink Bikers request reviews of affordable bikes they mean modern bikes with modern geometry form know quality brands, just in a reasonable price, not some Asian knock-off with 5 year old geo... Buddy just picked up a Trek Fuel for a couple hundred over $3K and it has a nice long reach, Fox forks, decent HA and came with GX Eagle 12 speed and a 150mm Dropper! Maiden voyage this weekend and the bike Rocks!!
