I live by the "run what ya brung" philosophy. Just have fun with whatever bike you have.

Revel's DH Bike Concept Has a 3D-Printed Thermoplastic Frame
Probably going for the same idea as the Canfield ONE.2. Build it with dual crown 200 mm or single crown 190 mm. https://canfieldbikes.com/collections/one-2-dh-mtb

Chris Akrigg Parts Ways with GT
@CleanZine: CSG was a division of Dorel that GT and Cannondale was under. The CSG division as well as all other Dorel cycling brands like Mongoose and Schwinn have been owned by Pon for about a year. Pon owns a bunch of other brands including Santa Cruz and Cervelo. https://pon.bike

Review: 2023 Merida One-Sixty: An Easygoing Enduro Bike
What is keeping the brake hose and derailleur/dropper housing from touching the steerer tube? On externally routed housing I've seen housing cut into alloy fork crowns and frames if not properly managed. Also wouldn't you have to do a brake bleed every time you changed the headset bearing?

First Look: ARC8 Essential - A Light & Aggressive Trail Bike
What are these companies doing about keeping the brake and derailleur housing from touching the steerer tube? I've seen housing that's sized too short or long routed on the outside of a frame come into contact with the fork crown or frame and it can cut right into the metal over time. Now it's on the inside and potentially touching the steerer.....sounds like a bomb fuse that's lit and you just don't know how long the fuse is. Add into that an egress for dirt and water to enter that area, no thanks.

Field Test: Commencal Meta HT AM Ride - Big Tires & Big Fun
Hite Rite was not only functional on the trail but kept my roommates from taking my seat post back to the apartment and forcing me to ride home standing up from class.

Review: Scott Spark RC World Cup - 120mm Is The New XC
People who own this bike could at least have a more tidy set up if they went with the SR Suntour Dual Remote....same number of cables just cleaner and easier to use. It sits above the bar allowing a traditional dropper lever. It also is super easy to unlock it by just nudging the side lever with your index finger keeping your thumb locked on the grips. https://www.srsuntour.us/products/dual-remote-lockout-handlebar-lever
