Introducing 'Behind the Numbers' - A New Suspension Analysis Series
@dan-roberts: The ones I struggled with the most are Mass Transfer, anti squat, and anti rise. I think I understand them, but if I had a pic or a vid of a bike emphasizing the actual movement then I could grasp a little easier. As I read the comments below I am seeing I am not the only one.... thankfully. I hate being the dumbest guy in the room and all my riding buddies work in aerospace :P

Introducing 'Behind the Numbers' - A New Suspension Analysis Series
This is outstanding! Mad Props to a well written article and most likely a very useful series. Because I am a Dork and not a Nerd, I tend to get flooded when words get too technical. I had to read each paragraph a couple of times to follow. Can I request more pictures to help explain the theories? I found I could understand leverage ratio and instant center right away (because of the pics), but the other stuff took me a few tries and I am still not sure I 100% got it. Thank you, Stupid Wannabe Nerd

6 Clip-In Trail Pedals Ridden & Rated
"Mallet E pedals are proving to be the most durable and crash worthy Crankbrothers have ever made." How about "Fastest runner with one leg", "Sharpest spoon in the drawer", or "Most fragrant decomposing carcass ever!"

Pinkbike Poll: What Would You Upgrade On Your Current Mountain Bike?
@showmethemountains: the sunrace CSMS (unlike the CSMX) has all steel gears with an aluminum spider. not the lightest, but a steel drive train lasts and lasts. I am very impressed with mine so far.

Pinkbike Poll: What Would You Upgrade On Your Current Mountain Bike?
@spaceofades: If one doesn't ride trials, engagement points are only bling... but if you do in fact pedal kick, it is all the difference in the world.

Pinkbike Poll: What Would You Upgrade On Your Current Mountain Bike?
rear hubs. everyone one of my bikes has an OEM hub with generic engagement. I want 48 or better, 72 would be nice. But damn, all that money can be spent on downhill days... gas, food, beer, etc.

Review: Time Speciale 8 Pedal
I can chime in here with my "my Time's have lasted for years bla bla bla" but I am not going to change anyone's mind about how they compare to SPDs and how the Crank Bros. factory needs to be set on fire for the crap they've been spewing out for the the last umpteen years.... but I won't. I WILL say that after 20+ years of riding the traditional ATAC's, I decided to try out some of the platform style versions because I went to a softer soled shoe than allows for more "roll" that was not enjoyed. I think WAKI was referencing this is his post above. I ended up buying three different sets off Craigslist and PB Buysell. I now have a set of Speciale 12's ($125), a set of the Mavic version of the MX4's ($50) and a set of the old ATAC Z Controls ($50). Dollar to dollar, there is NO DIFFERENCE. A cheap set of MX4's will do the same job as the $280 set of Speciale's. Yeah, the pins are "helpful" I guess, but I did not need them and ended up taking them out. I also never desired to adjust the spring tension on ATAC's. I am not saying the Speciale's don't have some nice features, but for the WAY HIGHER cost, they are not that amazing. I am super glad I did not pay retail.
