I may have missed them, but are there more pics/drawings of the lower link on your site?  I'm interested in how the concentric pivot goes together. 

The rear triangle and lower pivot gives me pleasant memories of my old Bronson v1. I enjoyed that bike.

I bet there are good ways to check the alignment, and less good ways? For example, how to best reference your alignment jig. Maybe this is a good topic for one of NSMB's tech articles? Or has that already happened? Anyway, I'd certainly read it.

This is interesting to me. I'm trying to think of what fat/snowbiking situations a steering damper would help, but I'm not recalling any. however, both you and T0m in another comment suggest it helps, so I'll keep this in mind while I'm riding this winter. We just got our first snow of the season.. :)

Glad it was helpful. Hopefully yours stays in the mildly-annoying-bump phase, and doesn't go into the contracture phase, where range of motion is significantly compromised. The remedies for that look not too fun.

You're right, this is a great forum--I would likely not have bothered to share elsewhere

I have a mild case of Dupuytren's, and round grips tend to irritate the small nodules in my palms on rougher descents (dupuytren's tends to appear on the ring and pinky finger tendons first). the GA3 grips do the best to distribute the force over my hands without feeling too clumsy. Definitely not the culprit for my consistently poor line choice.

But bag-blocking means it has a purpose, and is not totally superfluous! So disappointed

I appreciate these comments regarding breathability. Does anyone have a comparison of these to the Leatt AirFlex? I like mine, even for multi-hour pedal fests, but they are starting to wear out (3+ years in) and need replacement.

I mean, your shin was unfortunate and all, but was the Druid ok? :)

Did you agree with his opinions about narrow rims? As I understood him, he preferred tire performance on narrow rims vs >29 mm rims, both in rolling and cornering. That hasn't been my experience, but perhaps I misunderstood him (I was listening at 1.5x :) )

the torque wrench looks interesting. It'd be nice if they made a few higher torque adapters (say 10 N-m for my rear thru axle and shock bolts). 

Also, I was distracted by your flooring. Is that Marmoleum?
