Talking About Tire Pressure - Pinkbike Poll
Well. The Dr.'s advice is to cut the salt from our diet! There's NO fixed pressure. If ridding trail for fun, one may run lower pressures. If racing (especially through sharp rocks) one may need more pressure (a pint of salt in your salad). Hmmmpfff

The REAL Story of That Single-Sided Carbon Fork
@yeti-monster: Nothing. That's why they hate new & different things.... This guy is creative, that only makes him a... minority. Mr. Milos. If you're going to answer questions, you have to do some seriously filtering. Your design and craftsmanship are, at least, superior. Thanks for sharing

The REAL Story of That Single-Sided Carbon Fork
Strangely, I’ve seen the exact opposite! People, usually the …spoiled brat’s variety, demonstrate hate when the see something new / homemade / personalized… The usual words are: “Kill it with fire!” (Sometimes followed by the most copied, “it looks like a session”!!!) As for the companies, there IS a great difference. They are supposed to provide mass produced products that will work along with other so we might have a working bicycle. When the various companies introduce strange new sizes and more, they owe first, at least out of respect for the client, to sit down and agree on the new standards. The rest of us (people), we are free to create. After all these creations made our sport what it is today…

Pinkbike Poll: Does Bike Weight Matter?
Don't forget the durability factor. A ultralight / superlight / featherweight frame with similar components will not survive the eventual crashes of our sport. Even those race-dedicated machines, have problems surviving the whole season. So, technology may be able to offer us an antigravity-feel superlight bike, especially if money is not an issue, but remember: You WILL crash! Personally I do select parts that will live as long as possible. My list of priorities is: -Performance (how well this part, does what is supposed to do) -Reliability (is it going to perform the same as long as I service it?) -Durability (it competes with the above. Is it going to stay alive after some brushing, knocking and crashing? ) -Servicability (do I need to send it back to NASA for service? I prefer not) -Weight (of course!) -Looks (sure. It matters we all know that)

The Short, Turbulent Life of URT Suspension
Lovely article Richard. Especially for those of us who lived that era’s boom of different designs over the URT concept. The history of bicycle, is full of extreme & very promising designs that were unfairly faded in time (imagine IF some of these ideas were developed with the same ford and manpower over the years, as some of today’s systems…) Some examples are evident at the online bicycle museum, were (very) early full suspension designs, are demonstrated. One example: A 1930’s German Full suspension bike, with inverted forks, single sided suspension arm pivot, single shock absorber and (almost) a monotube frame… http://www.oldbike.eu/museum/1930s/1930-1934/1930-s-frame-suspension-springframe-bicycle/ The history of this sport is surely interesting.

Tech Talks: Handlebar Trimming 101, Presented by Park Tool – Video
After sawing CF it is better to apply a thin layer of quick drying epoxy or some varnish (a thin brush of medium stiffness will do). By this we seal any cracks within the CF bar's resin...

How Much Do Looks Matter When You’re Purchasing a Bike? - Pinkbike Poll
Oi mate. Looks DO matter, but people are prone on following the fashion. An example: When the first suspension forks appeared, most of the (back then magazines) media, were complaining for the… bad looks! The same goes on with the fist “fatter” tires, the first rear suspension and so on. So, With all those clones of the “session” frame, people (and among them editors, journalists, etc.) are subjected into a “new normal”, which dictates their taste. Sure a bike has to look good. After all it is a highly prized possession. But keep in mind that what passes today as “good looking” tomorrow will pass, at the best, as “vintage”… The best designs follow the rule “fashion follows function”.

What is the Forum's Sexiest AM/FR/Enduro Hardtail of 2017? - Pinkbike Poll
Peter's bike is fantastic (you've got to read how he's creating his frames). I wish I could see this frame in Sfarf's purple blue fade.....
