Review: Industry Nine's New Hydra Hubs Have 690 Points of Engagement
@ismasan: I only rode about the behavior in the downhills. The suspension can work more freely.

Review: Industry Nine's New Hydra Hubs Have 690 Points of Engagement
If you have such a quick engaging freehub, you feel every degree of the pedal kickback of your rear suspension. I don´t want a fast engaging freehub, because some degree of free movement can decrease the pedal kickback on the crank arms. And that is a bigger advantage for me than quick engagement.

Review: e*thirteen's Updated TRS Race 29'' Tire
@bman33: I rode Schwalbe in the last winters. I had never Problems. I ripped knobs on the older Muddy Marys, but not on the Magic Marys. But i don´t run them Long time on total dry hardpack. There better tires for this. But I also ripped kobs from minion DHR II.

Review: e*thirteen's Updated TRS Race 29'' Tire
I rode minions for years. They were great tires. But it´s 2018 and there are definitely better options out there. I found the new E-Thirteen is a great tire and outperforms a minion easily. A very similar tire from its performance is the Continental Der Kaiser Projekt 2.4 protection. It´s a little bit rounder what i found better in the corners. But same great brake and uphill traction and good rolling. In many regions it´s completely unimportant in the summer months how a tire perform in the wet. In many regions it´s completly dried out in the summer. Not the hole world is a rainy island. But yes, the Minion is better allrounder. But a Magic Mary is even a better one ... But you can´t say something against the holy minions on pb. It´s a sacrilege.

The Resurgence of High Pivot Suspension Design
The only negative thing I can say is, it bottoms out a little bit too easy on hard hits.

The Resurgence of High Pivot Suspension Design
I have never ridden a bike again, which was so good in smoothing out big braking bumps and stuff like that, like the Canfield Jedi. High pivot designs are working great.

Time Capsule: 2001 - Pinkbike's 20th Anniversary
I always loved the Super 8, spacialy paired with a old 175mm Monster T. Great Bike. I loved krank 4 for these bikes. But Ride to the hills will always be my favorite MTB movie.

Cane Creek's New 29er Helm Fork - First Look
You have already reviewed the 27.5 fork with air suspension. Why don´t you test the 29" fork as a coil version? There are almost no reviews of the coil helm jet.

Vecnum moveLOC 200mm Dropper - Review
I have riden this thing and i really didn´t liked it. Biggest problem was, it has too much drop and there is no engagement point to lock the post around 150-160mm which would be perfect for me, so i didn´t get an ideal downhill position. The action ist very clunky, it doesn't look good and the small 'shutters' in the sliding tube makes it not as good sealed as other posts. I had a reverb and liked its smooth action and infinite drop much more. But the Reverb isn't really reliable. Now i am on a bikeyoke revive. Best dropper post by far.
