Ask Pinkbike: Dirt Jumpers, Wheelies, and Extra-Soft Springs
@BullMooose: I feel like test ride flats and running shoes might actually be better than good flats and fivetens, since slipping off of the bike is a desired trait when you loop out:

the honzo is 75 degrees, but since it's a hardtail, once you account for fork sag, it's probably about 78 degrees as well

Sorry for commenting on an old photo, but did you have to make any modifications to get the Cane Creek Double Barrel Coil shock to fit the Trance?

Spotted: BlackBox RockShox Lyrik - Andes Pacifico 2018
@LoganKM1982: it feels like it's way behind and cheaply made because it's a SRAM product, trying to squeeze as much profit out as they can, to the detriment of the consumer. on the other hand, look at the dampers in manitou forks. well made, shimmed dampers in open baths, with hydraulic bottom-out - all the things that people pay $500 to Avalanche racing to "fix" their rockshox forks. even Manitou's cheapest, lowest end fork uses an open bath and comes with shimmed compression and rebound dampers. meanwhile, even some of RS' more expensive forks still come with their motion control dampers, which, at best, can be described as "not completely horrible".

@mikekazimer: the guy is wrong, but i get what he's trying to say. the rockies span such a large area that, once you get up into some of the towns up there, which are around 7 or 8K feet elevation, feels like you're just in the hills since the peaks aren't that much higher up in some places. compare this to, say, the eastern sierra, which rises from 4K feet up to 14K in just a few miles, and I can see what the guy was getting at. none of this changes the fact that there is tons and tons of steep stuff in colorado, no matter what it feels like in some spots

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
@IamSeaDevil: what exactly does a repaired carbon frame look like? is it obvious because there's a big patch of unpainted carbon slathered on top? or do most frames get repainted?
