SRAM X01 Drivetrain - Review
@deeeight, you're answer just has me asking the same question but for a new reason. Why is (it designed in such a way) it costs4 times the price??? Kudos to SRAM for bringing 1x setups to the mainstream, but after seeing Shimanos's new 11spd regular old hub cassette I can't give XX1 no love. Too bad, cause I like SRAM X-9 a lot, and would love to just see it have a bigger cassette. @manchvegas, why don't you just ditch gears altogether and just pedal even harder?

SRAM X01 Drivetrain - Review
Why is the cassette 4 times the price of an X9 10speed cassette? Maybe twice the price, but 400 bucks??

Introducing the Bluto - RockShox's New Fat Bike Fork
I don't care about KOMs, I care about getting to the top of a hill and not feeling like a sack of shit. I've found myself changing more traditional tires cause they "felt" slow, but I had no idea whether they were or not. If I feel more free biking (up and down) then I'm happier, and with my trails (packed clay, steep short ups & downs) I can't help but think I'd feel like I was riding up carpet on velcro tires. In the winter though, I would love a fatty. Once again, I qualify my statement with the fact that I have little experience on this kinds of bikes, just feel the need to chime. Ps. I'm not questioning fat bikes, more the need for fat bike suspension

Introducing the Bluto - RockShox's New Fat Bike Fork
Is it worth at least 300 grams/tire alone on the climbs? I'm genuinely curious. I don't love climbs, so anything that makes them easier is quite welcome. I'm a hardtai ride, again. Did squish for about 4 years, and it was nice, but I like the feedback of the trail on a hardtail, within reason. Feel like this mega mush ride would take all of that out and you'd just float over stuff. Not a bad thing, just not my thing.

Introducing the Bluto - RockShox's New Fat Bike Fork
I have virtually no experience on a fat bike, but with big chunker tires I can't imagine the need for suspension. I suppose if you're into regular dirt riding with a fat bike maybe, but I find too few problems with a normal 2.4 on a 29er to bother adding the weight of a 4+ inch tire to the mix. A 5 inch travel trail bike seems way more appropriate for trail riding if your conditoins are harsh and/or you can't handle getting banged around by rock gardens etc. Like I said, though, I have basically no experience on these.

First Look: Spank and DT Swiss Working on Magnetic Drive Hubs
I definitely enjoy the sound of my Hope hub, and was naively hopeful it would keep bears etc. away from me in BC. On the flip side my SS with a chill hub was really quiet, but I rarely took note of the silence. The reality is when I'm riding my ears are only attune to the sound my tires make, and any problems my bike is making audible. Infact, a quite bike actually makes all the little creaks and squeaks way more audible and easier to obsess over. The loud hub puts you in a trance.

Video: Vancouver Bike Show 2014 - Just The Tip
Hell yeah. The show is one big ad, which you shouldn't have to pay 20 bucks to see. Ideally it would be free, or a minimal charge to subsidize advocacy groups etc.

That would actually be a show! Right now it's just the Toronto Regional Bike Sale.
