Schwalbe 2015 Nobby Nic - Review
The more tires become refined the more a lot of them start to look the same. Spec Ground Control, these Nics, WTB Trail Boss..

ENVE M60 Forty Wheels - Review
For the weight, the KOMs are almost too good to be true as a proper enduro rim, but for general trail XC under a 200+ lb dude I'm very happy.

ENVE M60 Forty Wheels - Review
My real world experience has been quite positive so far (200+lb without gear, lots of cased jumps), but I wouldn't expect them to be as good as the Enve rims, or decent carbon rims for that matter. Just not 10 times worse. Derby rims seem to get pretty positive feedback and a measly $350/rim. Guess my point is that it doesn't seem like Enve is offing way more value for way more dollars.

ENVE M60 Forty Wheels - Review
My WTB KOM 29er rims are only 50 grams heavier than these rims for the same width, but cost 10 times less. Sure these are nice, but unless you are basically pro-level rider or rich, I can't imagine why you would bother with the extra expense. The gains just seem so minimal. http://www.wtb.com/products/kom

I had my lowers all trashed from neglect. It was the most boring 300 bucks I've spent on my bike.

RockShox RS-1 - Review
alexsin, I think 29er forks typically flex more than their smaller wheel counter parts, but I'll make sure to spend an hour refining my posts regarding hobby toys so that I don't upset others on the forum. mkm303, All caps, seriously? We're talking about bike parts, dude. You guys are brutal.

RockShox RS-1 - Review
Why would anyone want a 2000 fork that is designed to offer more rigidity at the expense of proprietary components? 29er wheels demand stiffer stanchions to make up for the extra length. X-Fusion offers all their 29er forks with larger stanchions standard, and I think it's a great idea. If this fork was only for pro level athletes I'd say don't bother, but it's gonna be used by anyone with the cash to burn and the need for bling, and it doesn't sound like it will perform as well as my proposed fork. Fork strength inspires confidence on technical courses which will probably be of greater benefit than a quarter pound of unsprung weight.
