Eurobike 2014: Hey! You Gotta See This...
Rider size is a variable (emily batty on a 29er...) but I find the biggest variable of all is often the most overlooked: terrain. All wheel sizes have their advantages and drawbacks. They will sell you everything they churn out of their chinese factories as the ultimate bike but truth is there is no ultimate bike, they all shine on a particular terrain and get eclipsed somewhere else. There's a reason they don't make much DH 29ers or XC marathon 26ers. To each their purpose.

Eurobike 2014: Hey! You Gotta See This...
I'm strongly considering getting a 40t-42t setup and considered all options as my drivetrain is getting old. It would be under 350$ to get an x9 setup with a 40t cog. Its about 1000$ for x01 setup. Despite knowing that a x01 derailleur probably shifts a lot better than an x9 on a 42 tooth setup, for a 650$ish difference, I'll take my chances with a 40t cog... Now maybe it would be different if it was a 1 time deal, but knowing that chains/cassettes/derailleurs are consumables, screw that, especially considering that the 350$ X01 derailleur could get destroyed any time with a little bad luck. With the third party 40-42t cogs, I feel sram/shimano are wasting precious money by not trickling down the tech faster and being inflexible with their initial business plan.

I buy stuff that's proven to work. I switched to Narrow wide, wider bars and clutch deraillers as their effectiveness is uncontested. The wheelsize debate is a mess and my first hand experience was inconclusive. I'm not making a move on that front until the dust settles.

BH, Onza and DT Swiss - Eurobike 2014
The price will probably be a major deterent, especially when schwalbe isn't known to make long lasting tires.

I'm not implying anything, just saying that's how it sounded. I figured the story was super simplified and a lot more things happened in reality.

E-Thirteen Finally Answers the Age-Old Question:
"there is not alot of money around for bike R & D" That's what I've been wondering lately, so many new "OmG BeSt ReVoLuTiOn EvEr!!!!111!" stuff but it's mostly slight variations of pre-existing products or moto rip offs. Cassettes with a few extra teeth, handlebars a little wider, slightly bigger wheels, parts a tad lighter, barely noticable damper performance increase, different chainring teeth configuration... Where's the true innovation? Are bikes really that perfect (hello drivetrains...) or is marketing getting the biggest slice of the budget?

That's what struck me the most about this article. "sorry we can't help you right now" "oh look, we've been working on the same thing, what were the odds!"

Fly Racing Warpath Short - Review
My gear is all black because the mud stains bigtime here and if you're riding white shorts you'd look like you had violent bouts of diarrhea... and humidity is the real killer here and it doesn't care about fabric color.
