Cane Creek DBair CS - First Look
the cool thing about modern rebound circuits is, that they react according to the amount the damper was compressed before. so when you almost bottomed, it will extend (intially) faster than when you hit only some small bumps or wallow a bit in travel (uphill). i do believe that this is a really capable damper, but besides altering the lowspeed compression there is not much sense in changing the behaviour of the rebound more than it does anyway.

Tech Tuesday – Wider Rims Are Better and Why Tubeless Tires Burp Air
i do not want to flame, its just when someone tries to tell me that a few millimeters of rim width make a difference, then a few mm of tire width do the same. schwalbe has not skewed it. take out your caliper and measure a 2,4" schwalbe (for eg big betty) and afterwards the muddy mary. you will notice a 2mm difference. fortunate me: i own the mentioned ex5.1/ex500 rims as well as big betty and muddy mary tires. the different sizes are even visible, especially in terms of tire volume. just sounded fishy to me.

Tech Tuesday – Wider Rims Are Better and Why Tubeless Tires Burp Air
total mess up with the widths of rubbers and rims. 1: muddy mary: 2,35" or 2,5" there is no 2,4" muddy mary. do you even know what you're writing about? 2: in the very beginning it says: We mounted a set of monster-sized Schwalbe Muddy Mary tires to 21-millimeter (ID) DT Swiss EX 5.1D rims and burped them right away at 35 PSI - a pressure that makes a 2.4 inch tire almost rock hard. Big tires on narrow rims - bad. The same tires rocked on 25-millimeter (ID) AM wheels. Big tires on wide rims - good. and in the end it says As far as getting rid of the burp, we recently ran 2.4-inch Schwalbe Muddy Marys on a set of old-school narrow DT Swiss XC wheels and they burped flat at 35 psi. We shredded for a few months on the same tires, mounted to wide-format DT Swiss All Mountain wheels without a single fault. The weight penalty of the wider rm seems insignificant when balanced against its performance gains. 3: so non existing 2,4" schwalbe tires suck on a 21 ID rim like the pictured EX 5.1. thank god they managed to mount the same tire on a dt swiss "all mountain rim" what certainly means it is a brand new (and very allmountainish) dt swiss EX 500 rim. some might know that this is actually the same rim with different stickers on it. great work richy. and please don't tell you mounted a 600+ grams dt swiss "freeride" rim and name it somewhat allmountain with little weight penalty. yesterday the cockpit height, today rim width, whats up for tomorrow? i'm sure to wake up, willing to follow a new trend!

Chromag Aperture Hardtail Review
i know you're canadian badass (etc.) mountainbikers, but seriously, talking about climbing features on a frame when not even having installed a granny is foolish. and yes, there are mountains out there that you simply can not ride uphills w/o granny or a gear ratio really near to it, no matter how much power you have. besides that: stop whining about the hanger, you can't even fit a hydraulic dropper post - knock out argument.

Avid Elixir 7 Brakes Review
"Even more beneficial, especially in the long run, is the fact that the sealing O-ring no longer passes over the timing port like within more traditional designs, meaning that it is less likely to become worn or tear over time." wow! so they will fail after 2 months instead of 1? I've had 2 pairs of elixir brakes. CR and X.0. the X.0 just lacked power and a firm lever feel, even after bleeding (yes, i know how to). but the CR was somehting different. when trying do decelerate, hard, they just lost their pressure point and touched bars (l+r). got new shimano xtr trail brakes for my fs and '12 xt brakes on my hardtail. looks like shimano did their homework. so far really great :)
