e13 TRS Plus 29 Boost

$500 USD
These are brand new, never ridden, takeoff wheels. I had a pair of wheels I had from my previous build and don't need them. They looks fantastic in-person with large flange hubs and wide rims. They come taped with valves, just add tires and Stan's! From e13: Six degree freehub engagement ensures you can snap turns faster than the competition. The TRS+ (trs plus) hub flanges and rim profile create a wide spoke angle for superior stiffness and cornering stability. TRS+ hubs include our 1 year, no questions asked bearing guarantee. 2018 brings improved dent resistance and full aluminum CNC machined hub shells to keep things in your budget. 30mm inner width rims provide a perfect platform for larger enduro tires and all wheels come tubeless ready with tape and valves installed.

First Ride: Ibis Ripmo - Long-Travel 29er
That is pretty lame. It's like Specialized blaming shock manufacturers (the ones they selected) on the side loading that occurs causing shocks to blow up. I'd expect something like that from a cheap brand but these are expensive bikes.

Topeak Shuttle Gauge Digital - Review
I used to use my Topeak digital gauge (OG one, not this one) and it was great. Then I bought a Lezyne high volume, analog mountain-bike specific pump and no longer need it. It's just as accurate and takes one step out of the process. Fantastic product and doesn't lose air when releasing the head.

First Ride: 2019 RockShox Lyrik RC2
@jayacheess: agreed. I ride a Pushed 36 and just spent 3 hours on a 2017 Lyrik riding chunky fun and that fork is just as capable.

Ask Pinkbike: My Kid Keeps Crashing, & Tire Tips for Moab
DD casing at least on the rear tire could save a ride on something like Porcipine or Ahab.

First Ride: 2019 RockShox Lyrik RC2
@gnralized: Is it possible that the R+D team knew that the best performance outcome would be alloy but the marketing/BD people needed a fork that was $3.73 cheaper so they can sell 1,289 Lyriks to Trek/Giant/etc.? My point is that outright performance isn't the only objective when you run a business. It's only us dorks who would notice or care about these small details.

First Ride: 2019 RockShox Lyrik RC2
I had the opportunity to meet a Rockshox engineer and see parts of the facility in CO Springs last year. Besides one of the coolest bike-related experiences of my life, it was really eye opening and changed alot of what I thought about the company (and bike manufacturers in general). It should go without saying that SRAM takes R+D very seriously (crazy data acquisition tools, testing machines, working closely with athletes, etc.). I came away with a much greater respect for balancing performance, cost, serviceability and durability. Combine this with manufacturing millions of tiny bits to near perfect tolerances and they make a lot of tough decisions about what and how to put updates into production. That said, companies like Push, Avalanche and Vorsprung exist for people like us on the fringe who want that last 10% of performance and are willing to spend the extra time and money on tuning.
