comment Panniers or rack bags for photography equipment
There is a special camera insert for the ortlieb handlebar bag and it isn't that much smaller than the front roller really. However, I can't unreservedly recommend it as I've had a lot of problems with the button fastenings.

comment Why don't most MTBs have rear shocks?
@Starx I have a fully and I love it. I wouldn't go back. For me, the ride quality more than makes up for the additional maintenance.

I just found this question from google and I'm disappointed not to see a useful answer, ie. one that addresses the actual problem of wind noise.

comment Is it worth switching from regular “rim brakes” to the new disk brakes?
@Random832 The problem is that regardless of rotor size, the braking force must be transferred through the whole fork not just from the crown area. Ordinary forks are not designed for this. I don't think the frame design would matter.
