Review: Magura's MT7 Pro Brakes Are Ultra-Customizable
With mineral oil you get pockets of water that migrate to the caliper and boils off when you get heat in to them. This leads to the inconsistency and the “Shimano Double Pump”. DOT just gets spongy but is consistent. You have to bleed them far more often and mineral oil is way more sensitive to having a good bleed. With DOT at least you can count on them working. That’s why I prefer DOT and won’t run mineral oil.

First Ride: YT's New Long-Travel 29er, the Jeffsy 29 CF Pro Race
@jclnv: more air spacers are a lazy way to fix poor design. Stop building bikes for the sole purpose of feeling plush on the shop floor! Even YT is making their bikes less progressive for the weekend warrior.

@Ttimer: I disagree. Light suspension is do bikes feel nice and plush in a demo ride or a parking lot. They aren’t for people that actually ride them hard.

@goroncy: I have owned two Ibis. Next time you see one, look around where the tubes come together. Look around where the seat tube goes in and around the head tube. They don’t do a good job sanding everything down and prepping for paint. Then they put on crappy paint. For a frame that costs that much I expect better. Not to mention the basically use bondo to cover everything up before paint and make it look nice and smooth.

@goroncy: have you actually looked at an Ibis frame? Wouldn’t exactly call it “carefully crafted” They are also mass produced in China.

Review: Intense's M29 is a DH Racing Thoroughbred
Curious on the timing of this coming out now? Drop us some hints on how it compares to the 29 V10 you are testing. It sounds like this is the same suspension the Intense team runs and they do not neuter the bike for the paying customer like Santa Cruz does?

Review: The Banshee Legend 29" Rewards Aggressive Riders
Reading between the lines, Aston found a bike that is too big? Seems like for someone 5’9” this is too big and we should not reflexively size up? When is the embargo on the 29 V10 end? I’ve had three V10’s but I’m having a hard time getting excited for a fourth. Hoping a positive review will change my mind.

Review: Unno's Dash is Ultra-Exotic, Ultra-Efficient, & Ultra-Expensive
That's so that if you are bro's with the shop (IE anyone and everyone but you) the shop will knock a significant amount off the price. There is no bro deal on the Unno. If you are one of the suckers that shops try to milk every last penny out of you should just buy the Unno.

Interview: JC Canfield of High Above Talks Hip Packs, Domestic Manufacturing, & Why People Don’t Put Ideas on the Table
Have two of their packs. Well worth the money. High quality and worth it to me to support local manufacturing. Also, great to deal with. Also, their mesh duffle bag is pretty great. Never thought I needed it, but it’s super burley and perfect for stashing stanky fear in the back of my truck.

Review: Santa Cruz Bronson V3
@leon-forfar: I thought that despite the fact they essentially copied the numbers off the HD4, the HD4 rode significantly better. Personally, I care less about trail feel and would not have the flex the .001% of the time I’m riding it hard enough to matter. This Bronson is a massive improvement over the last one though and I will give you it has the Ibis soundly beat in fit and finish and paint quality - Ibis has some of the worst paint quality and finishing anywhere. That said, the finishing on the new Bronson’s and 5010’s I’ve seen has not been great. My friends new 5010 cc has no clear coat on the bottom of the top tube! Very hit or miss.
