Review: Atomik's BERD XC33 Wheels Use Spokes That Look Like String
@WAKIdesigns: Exactly. Tyres @ 20psi, rims, suspension, saddle, seatpost, bars etc and you "never experienced the sensation of getting kicked around in rough sections of trail" thanks to the spokes? Really? I'm all for advances in materials, and spokes are somewhat overdue that as they haven't fundamentally changed in years, but to claim that these are anything but lighter spokes seems a bit hyperbolic.

@SlodownU: I know that you want to believe this, but do you really think that a 25% tariff would have no effect on a corporation that imports most of its stuff from China?

Burning Question: Should the DH Skinsuit Ban Be Lifted?
Yep. Those old enough will remember the 80s XC debate when riders turned up with cross bikes cos the XC courses were so lame. Then they just banned >26" wheels (the irony now!), but really they should have sorted the courses out.

Does Boost Spacing Really Make a Stronger Wheel?
@teamcliff: Pace did this nearly 30 years ago. I expect someone did it before that. I've never understood why asymmetric rear triangles didn't catch on.
