Talking About Tire Pressure - Pinkbike Poll
I was surprised to find that my new Topeak gauge reads 3-4psi lower than my Park floor pump. Now I need to compare them both against a few other high quality gauges.

Stan’s NoTubes Introduces Crest CB7 and Arch CB7 Rims and Wheelsets
@WAKIdesigns: look at the weight- arch is 455g flow is 527 and only 3mm wider. I think they found a way to get a bit more aluminum in there where it counts... in the rim section supporting the bead wall.

Says the guy running NOX rims ^^^ But I agree- they don't tend to rush products to market. I'm running their Flow MK3 (29) and I'm really happy with the balance between stiffness vs. compliance.

Yeah- I'm 150lbs and tried out the Arch Mk3 on a Tallboy3. Result? Rear rim with lots of dents within 1 month. I live in a rocky area, but I keep my tires inflated and don't hit stuff THAT hard. Switched to the Flow MK3 and it was a world of improvement. The wheels feel stiffer and more precise, and I notice the extra traction- well worth the slight weight penalty. I built both wheels to the same spoke tension. I am willing to bet the carbon Arch Rims feel a lot stiffer laterally than the 455g alloy model. Not that the super-light rims don't have their place... I think the target audience will know who they are :D

Here's My Zerode Taniwha Test Bike - Tell Me What You Want to Know
How does the gearbox FEEL and SOUND? Is there any sense of increased drag? Does it feel different in some gears compared to others? Can you time some climbs (and decents) and compare against a derailleur equipped enduro bike of similar price and design? Any word on electronic shifting for Pinion to ditch the grip shift and dual-cable setup?

Ask Pinkbike: Fork Travel, Mini-DH Bikes, and Junior Racing
GT Sanction might fit the bill for mini DH. Pretty affordable, and a bunch of top athletes are still racing them

Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
Clearly what we need is a bike that is both playful and stable, fast like and XC rig but able to handle Whistler, cheap and environmentally friendly like alloy, but with the stiffness and ride quality of carbon... lets add a gearbox that weighs less than Eagle, make the whole thing virtually maintenance free, and keep the cost under $4k. Also no more flat tires please. If you can do this by creating standards that won't change for 10years that would be super. Can I have it in a different color depending on my mood? Also make sure none of my riding buddies buy the same one... On a more serious note- 110x20mm, 157x12mm, and that new thread-fit 47 (is that the right number?) BB for 30mm axles seem like good places to start, but I'm not an engineer. Standardized bearings and tools to press them in and out across FS designs would be great too. Having a standardized way to get ~ 1cm of height adjustment front and rear would be nice (tire choice, terrain, and personal style vary quite a lot).
