Park Tool Adjustable Torque Driver - Review
I wouldn't use HF torque wrench, I have horrible experience with much of their stuff, and a good experience with a few things. I don't buy throwaway crap, it's really wasteful. Buy something that will last for life, you'll save money in the long run.

1Question - What's The Biggest Game Changer In The Next 10 Years?
Agreed Pedro404. Just ride your old stuff till it dies, and do it faster than your friends. Look closely, many of the best riders are on the oldest, most clapped out bikes.

Ask Pinkbike: Carbonphobia, Choosing a Rain Shell, and Hydro-Pack Alternatives
Long rides? Pack mandatory! End of story. Seems like a lot of "mountain bikers" don't really ride that hard.

OneUp Components Releases RAD Cage
@MrDiamondDave - Well aren't you special. Some of us ride trails with hard climbs. Long climbs. That are hard. Do 5 hours of tech and then report back to us. Horses for courses, my friend.

First Look: Shimano XTR Di2 Electric Shifting
My initial reaction was "why?" to the idea of electronic shifting. But as I'm cleaning off my bike from a muddy ride last night, I think electronic shifting could have real benefits in wet regions where mech cables get nasty in a ride or two and your shifting starts to suck in short order. I "should" replace my cables monthly, but I do it maybe three times a year (5mm full length housing helps). It also seems like 11 speed is fairly pointless with this system, might as well have 9 or 10 speed. But at least we will have the option to run it 1x11 (in a few years when it trickles to XT). Great to see a battle between SRAM and Shimano right now for the future of shifting. Good for the sport. Now let's see some trickling down.

First Ride - SRAM X1 Drivetrain
HUGE opportunity for a company to come out with full cassettes to compete with both SRAM and Shimano. Just give us an 11 speed 10-42 that fits on a standard cassette at a $200 MSRP and you'll make yourself a whole lotta money and make a whole lotta riders really happy. SRAM too expensive and derailleurs still not durable enough. Shimano ignored the market. OK, who's going to step up?

Park Tool EK-1 Tool Kit - Review
@Kainerm Ever been on a bike trip to somewhere remote? If not, you should try it! Stuff breaks, and if you don't fix it, you don't ride. And I'm cracking up at the roadie hate. Sure, some are just on the coffee shop, team jersey circuit, but many are just people loving riding bikes. Most great dirt riders also spend time on the road either training or riding to work and will crush you going both down and up. Power up your legs, don't be a weakling.
