First look: The Chickadeehill LFB6 Shock has 2 Positive Air Chambers
Being from Massachusetts, I like the name. Chickadee is our state bird. Shock seems wicked nice too; beautifully machined and we’ll thought, if a bit overkill for my riding…but there’s no kill like overkill.

Wrap Around Smart Trainers & Colour Changing Paint - The Best MTB Adjacent Tech From the CES Show
I don’t know how it works exactly with respect to body creases etc but it reportedly uses the same type of technology as e-readers which are pretty cheap at the moment. They can only do two “colors”, but it’s an interesting proof of concept.

Pinkbike Editors' New Years Resolutions for 2022
2022 we're going back to pick a wheel size and be a dick about it. That's all you're allowed to be a dick about though. Ok, maybe carbon vs aluminum too. That's all!

Video: $180 vs. $1900 Contact Points - Budget vs. Baller Episode 3
Let’s be honest, a full suspension rebuild front and rear plus dropper service, a drivetrain adjustment and cable replacement, a brake bleed, and new tires probably would have cost $500 or so to do and would have had Henry’s bike riding almost as good as factory. I don’t know what shape the frame bearings were in but even spending $1000 totally rebuilding everything on the bike still would have cost less than Jason’s saddle and dropper. #That should be the real takeaway here.

Jason going full lipstick on a pig with $400+ in bar and stem alone. That’s like 20 Mike Bears - a whole forest worth of bears. I’m almost feeling bad for Henry but I haven’t forgotten that internal cable routing debacle.

Burning Question: How Much Do Water Bottles Influence Frame Design?
I like the idea but the fact is you would have to make the inside of the frame a pretty sanitary environment which isn’t feasible on a bike without making the individual components of the hydration/nutrition system removable for cleaning. Having a frame made of mystery materials that can leech into the water or whatever sports drink mix people put in, and have it be subjected to a dark and extremely temperature-swinging environment (hot summer day sitting on the side of a trail, black painted frame can also be used in below freezing times of year in the same geographic area) sounds like a breeding ground for disease. I’ve seen people use frame bags specially made for their bikes on gravel rides with an internal bladder that they swap out at aid stations along the race route. Those are excellent solutions to a hydration/nutrition problem, albeit they don’t have suspension to worry about…for now.

Burning Question: How Much Do Water Bottles Influence Frame Design?
@ridenwc1: and because it’s standardized we have aftermarket options for other things to put in that place. You can get those tool cubbies in a dummy bottle, you can have insulated bottles, bottles with promotional logos on them, hell Specialized can put another friggin battery there. When I go rent a bike on vacation I can bring my own bottles instead of having to hope the one strapped to the bike was washed out after it was used last. This just seems like a case of trying to reinvent the wheel, which I guess as a whole this sport is pretty hellbent on at all times.
