Tire Choices & Pressures of 20 Pro Racers - Les Gets DH World Cup 2023
Inserts are still very much a thing for enduro races, or for park rats that pay for their own equipment. In a DH race if you're relying on the insert after a puncture, your run is already hosed so no reason to pay the weight penalty.

Bike Check: Viral Optimist 160
@Joebohobo: All materials will eventually fatigue, but the fatigue limit for Ti-6Al-4V (guessing on the alloy here, but that's the most common one used in 3D sintering applications) has a fully reversed fatigue limit of ~410 MPa / 60ksi. Considering the application, it would be safe to assume this link has been designed to keep stresses under that limit, which in turn should result in an essentially indefinite lifespan for it's purpose- ie into the billions of cycles. Even the fatigue life of aluminum bicycles (which have no fatigue limit) is vastly over hyped by the cycling community- any decent frame design that's been properly manufactured will outlast it's rider unless it's been totally thrashed.

Ask Pinkbike: CushCore vs. Tubes, Fork Setup, Sticky Brake Pistons, & 12-speed Chain Length
@Perra: Less than a tire without inserts inflated to 30 PSI. The whole point (or one of them) of Cushcore and similar inserts is that your sidewalls are physically supported for most of their height. Under lateral loading the sidewall joins the entire width of the insert in resisting rolling. which makes for a much stiffer overall tire system. There are downsides to inserts, but squirmy tires are not one of them.

Update: School District in Marin Backpedals on Disbanding High School MTB Teams & May Protect Teams from Future Threats
@zede: The sheer irony of anyone from a European country ragging on any other country about being founded on "constant violence and hate of difference" is hilarious. Pick up a history book some time. Happily, your fellow countrymen in the US don't share your snotty, bigoted, hateful, ignorant attiitude and are generally pretty chill. Turn off the TV and try to be like them.

Ask Pinkbike: Tire Width, Cleaning Tips, Shock Setup, & Buying a Bike Without Trying It First
@mikekazimer: Second shoreboy's comments, the simple green PRO (the purple stuff) is a worry free and effective bike cleaner. Also about the same cost (sometimes cheaper, sometimes pricier).

Standard simple green is a bit caustic, and also should not be used on steel. The industrial simple green (which is purple), is much better for bike applications. Though, if it's staining the laminate, I would be worried about the quality of the resin, because that shouldn't happen.

@zede: Oh dear, couldn't actually back up your claims? Better start spouting every invective that comes to mind, surely that will work. Spend more time riding, less time hating.
