Race Face's President Purchases Easton Cycling
My friends have had their hubs screw up by bad design, and the mechanics at my LBS hate them. I've also read bad reviews. I heard that recent updates fixed the hub issues, so maybe you're benefitting from that, or just found a good set. None of this fixes the issue of proprietary spokes and narrow inner widths. That said, they are beautiful, and I appreciate the UST rim a lot as taping just never feels right.

Easton and Raceface makes really nice componentry (love my Atlas cranks), but Easton wheels are a lame proprietary set up and seem to fail a lot, and neither company seems to be addressing the trend of wider rims. Would love it if these two can bring about some new affordable, tubeless ready wheelsets with wider rims to the market, but I can't say I'm optimistic. If the quality of their components were maintained across the wheel options I'd be all over them.

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.
