My question is when does the onyx patent expire? not paying those prices.

Kona Wah Wah II Flat Pedals - Review
@jayrebel: yikes. one of mine has developed a little play in only about 3 months. i'm going to check the bolt tightness. i've had a pedal come off before- a nukeproof neutron. thankfully it was during a climb. it just kind of slid off and i was extremely confused, but no crash. what was recommended to me was "surface insensitive" threadlocker. it's a specific type of threadlocker made to handle greasy environments, as I understand it. never had a problem with those pedals since

Review: Race Face Turbine R Dropper Post
@mironfs: giant use a replaceable cartridge too. i think it's $60. though i'm almost to 4 years without needing a replacement cartridge on my 2nd gen giant dropper if the oneup one lasts half as long, i would be pretty satisfied with it

The World's Longest DH Bike: Isak Leivsson's Pole Machine 200 - Fort William World Cup 2018
@wesu: which doesn't even seem that crazy given how far back the bars are behind the headtube. i bet the effective reach is the same as a similar sized Transition or Kona enduro bike

Review: MRP Ribbon Coil Fork
yep, Manitou had the MARS air/coil system. they stopped making it a couple of years ago AFAIK. It's so good though- amazing SBC and easy to tune the mid and end stroke with the air pressure. I wish they would make it for the Mattoc as an upgrade option

First Ride: Pivot's New Trail 429
@Trouterspace: then lets have an "improvement year" every 5 years where the industry updates standards. all these improvements may add up, but individually, they aren't worth it. and i would argue that this improvement is more marginal than most.

suspension and dropper posts represent MASSIVE improvements. just how massive is this improvement? worth adding yet another standard to trail bikes? not even close.
