Review: Continental's Updated Trail King Tires Are Impressively Predictable
@TheRaven: YUp. I've been running TKs on all my bikes for years. Awesome PNWet tire and does great in the desert as well. Rolls fast. Grips well. I get very few flats and I am 200lbs ready to ride. :) I heard they were coming out with a 2.6" width....I hope that's still in the works. :)

Video: Steep & Fast on Vancouver Island in 'Unbroken'
Sorry they just announced they are banning beer and they are banning off paved road biking on Vancouver Island. Dang! Everyone here is so mad, but they say the decision is final so that's just the way it is. :(

Guerrilla Gravity's Less Expensive, US-Made Carbon Frame
You can slap a different shock on there if you prefer something else. Fox DPX2 Elite is a $200 or get an 11.6 if you are feeling rich. The builds are pretty much fully customizable at reasonable costs.

Guerrilla Gravity's Less Expensive, US-Made Carbon Frame
@dthomp325: the Smash climbs like a beast in plush mode. Mine is setup with a coil and I never flip the CS switch. Enjoy the new ride. :)

Vorsprung Announces Smashpot Coil Conversion Kit
@vanillarice19: The Ramp Control works my restricting airflow through an orifice as the fork compresses. The size of that orifice changes with knob at the bottom. So ya it's an air ramp control function.

Review: Santa Cruz Bronson V3
It's been a thing for a long time. I got several sets for my 9yr old Nomad Mk2. No hassles or questions asked. Even with winter riding I didn't find the need to replace VPP bearings all that frequently.

Chain Reaction Cycles Won't Sell You Shimano Parts if You're in North America
@plyawn: - I went through that, but free shipping is back to 3 days to Victoria with Jenson. Fast and reliable. Prices seem fine to me.
