Review: Vee Tire Co's Super-Sticky Flow Snap WCE Tires
The worn tyre is the older harder compound Vee Snap! Which is basically a completely different tyre...

Sick Bicycle Co Responds to Anger Over Undelivered Frames
They’d probably get their frames more quickly if they paid the people making them: https://www.facebook.com/(null)?metadata=mTAiAHhJTQVen2NiBd3+DONtrupGXSkPKmjNUaQqWho0Sz18dY+EQv0GxW5E/UClAy146lRQ4j8sbGPsBsVq2PcV&sfns=mo

How Do Coaches Help Riders Go Faster on a World Cup Weekend?
I may be wrong but I think what Alan Milway was saying is to do with the bike and rider being loosely connected masses, and as with all collisions conservation of momentum means that the lower mass will experience the greater acceleration. With a DH MTB, the rider's high mass's momentum acts through the low mass bike into the earth and back again (and the earth's mass is effectively infinite).

Poll: Does Your Trail Bike Have a Weight Problem?
@RichardCunningham: I cannot get over how much better the suspension works on my Levo than on far lighter non-E bikes, and the big difference is the increased sprung mass.

Review: Forbidden's New High Pivot Trail Bike - the 2019 Druid
Something that hasn’t been mentioned, is the chainstay length changes by moving the bottom bracket location on the downtube triangle - and the only reason you can move it so much without affecting the suspension behaviour is that idler pulley.

5 More Hardtails with Extreme Geometry
You really need to stop promoting Sick Bicycles. They're not delivering bikes to customers who've been waiting for months and months longer than they were told. It seems their alternative business model is not viable and before their business inevitably collapses they're relying on new customers to keep money coming in, even though either no or very few products are going out. It's a shame - they're local to me and friends of friends of mine but it's not right to keep advertising them as a company actually supplying bikes to their paying customers.

Review: Continental's Updated Trail King Tires Are Impressively Predictable
@zephxiii: Depends on what you consider slow. Based on the older versions (which had the same tread pattern down the centre), it's quicker than DHF and DHR2 Exo dual or 3C versions but slower than a Minion SS.

Review: Continental's Updated Trail King Tires Are Impressively Predictable
FYI, I'm talking about the original 27.5 Trail King, not this version! Still black chili additive in the rubber (no, it's not black chili compound, there are LOADS of different Continental tyre compounds with the black chili additive, some faster, some grippier, not just MTB tyres either) but a different casing, probably a different compound and a different tread pattern (similar at first glance though). I've been on Maxxis and Specialised tyres since being disappointed by the Trail Kings. DHR2 is similar, grippier but slower.

Review: Continental's Updated Trail King Tires Are Impressively Predictable
The old Rubber Queen UST 26x2.2 was great! The Trail King Protection 27.5x2.2 weren’t as grippy when cornering, the tread wore much more quickly and the casing felt stiffer but less well damped and punctured more easily. And much harder to seat tubeless and didn’t hold air as well. Hopefully this new version is back to being good again! The tread looks better (bigger/more side knobs) and the technical blurb about the casing bodes well. I really rated the Rubber Queens as a rear tyre in all conditions and a front tyre when it wasn’t too muddy.
