2017 DVO Topaz Air T3 (200x57, 7.875x2.25) Great air shock in great condition. I bought it used in 2019 and rode it for a year, had it rebuilt by DVO in summer 2020, and it has been in the box since. It deserves better than that! Original stickers are peeling, but there are no scratches Shock comes with Fox IGUS bushings installed, and also includes the case, a rebuild kit, and volume spacer kit.

Riders Respond to Crash at the Lenzerheide XC World Cup 2022
@iamamodel: to be clear, the incident that preceded this famous quote was Senna doing something like Flückiger did here except crashing his competitor out on purpose. The quote sounds cool and driven, but the implication that you go for every gap no matter how risky isn't true in the real world of risk vs reward, wasn't true of Senna's own racing, and was just a nice tale to build a cover story for a blatantly dirty act of going or a gap he knew didn't exist so that he could hit the other driver. As bad as it looks for Flückiger to have crashed into Nino, I don't dare accuse him of anything like that

Review: Michelin's Wild Enduro Racing Line Tires Are Tough, Tacky, & Heavy
I definitely won't willingly pay $100 for a bike tire, but I've learned to stop comparing that to my car tires. I'm looking for high-performance tires for my bike, and the equivalent high-performance tires for a track car or an offroad vehicle are $500-1000 each

Tektro Introduces 9-Speed Entry Level E-Bike Drivetrain
I've been using Microshift Advent X since the summer, and so far so good. 11-48t 10spd system with clutch derailleur. Not a full 500% range but it's been good enough for me. The cassette is HG freehub only, but that is at least helpful for upgrading older bikes. Seems well built and has performed great That said, I have definitely noticed the limitation of wide range 10 speed. There are bigger jumps across the whole cassette, and often find my sweet-spot for cadence/effort falling between two of the gears. I have to choose between too slow or too hard in ways that I definitely didn't with my previous 11-36t 10spd cassette. So, in a way upgrading from standard 10 speed to wide-range 10 speed has made me more interested in a 12 speed upgrade in the future
