Video: Hope Factory Tour
Chris King is not to be found in the same price category. If you want something that works, but you don't want to spend all your savings, go for Hope.

Pinkbike Poll: What Style of Grip Do You Prefer?
I've had ODI Ruffians (with and without flange), ODI X-trainers, Specialized Globes, Brooks leathers, several Ergon grips, Deity Leans with flange and NC-17 lock-ons (can't remember the name). From all grips, I liked the ODI X-trainers in combination with gloves most. Without gloves I prefer the Brooks grips. Ergons are comfortable regarding the form, but not the material. The ruffians gave me loads of grip, and so did the Deitys. The question about lock-on vs no lock on is not worth answering because: hairspray!

"We got some dumbass motherfuckers floating around this country." -George Carlin, American. See, when I used to buy caps 10 years ago, the label said "One size fits all". Which to me meant "This cap is only available in one size." A couple of years later, that same label said "One size fits most". Why? Because some nitpicker said "But it doesn't fit my child's head...". He was right, though maybe he should have bought a child cap. The same thing is going on here: "29ers roll over everything". No they do not, obviously. My advice is: Try riding over a 2 meter high concrecte wall. Try it. Film the whole thing, and then come back and say "I thought 29ers rolled over everything". "Dumbass motherfuckers"...

Ask Pinkbike - Plasti Dipping a Frame, Finding the Right Headset
Hmm you could be right. I tightened the bolts to torque specs at first, which didn't offer a long ride without play. I then tightened them more than advised (still in the safe zone), and it didn't help either. I know there is some paste out there that should stop components from slipping against each other (for carbon seatposts mostly), but I didn't think of it at that time. Perhaps it could have helped. The creaking noise was coming from the headset though, 100% sure. When adjusting the torque on the stem cap bolt, there was no creaking sound for a while, but a few kilometers later it popped up again. Retightened the stem cap, no more noise. A few crank revolutions further... Same story. Canyon was really just pushing the problem out of their hands and was not clear about what it could be. He bought a new headset, also CC, and the problem was still there. Perhaps a faulty headtube (PF cups)?

Ask Pinkbike - Plasti Dipping a Frame, Finding the Right Headset
I had a CC headset on my Nomad carbon. A 110 if I remember correctly. It was shit. Came loose all the time. Got it replaced... Still not what it was supposed to be. I now have a 40 on my Canyon and so does my brother and they work fine. A friend of mine had nothing but creaking noises coming from his CC headset on his Canyon (same frame as my brother).

Ask Pinkbike - Plasti Dipping a Frame, Finding the Right Headset
It all depends on the number of layers you apply. Dipyourcar.com advises using AT LEAST 3 coats, but they usually apply 6, sometimes 7. They say that using more layers will result in a thicker rubber finish; which is stronger and harder to remove. Your dip will never be as strong on a car as it would be on a bicycle, because you dip only one side of a panel on the car and the whole frame of the bike going around 360°. Ripping a coat of plastidip (6 layers and on) is hard... So just use enough of the stuff :) The first 3 coats should be just quick ones and the ones following that should be slower, more covering ones to get an awesome satin look. You shouldn't use Plasti Dip in its pure form, but use thinner (from the same brand).

He is not hating on Matt's style, he is sad because of the short length of the video. That's all.

Hope Retainer Ring - Review
It all depends on where you usually ride, what wheelsize you have, how light your wheels are and what grip your tires deliver. A guy with a full suspension 26" bike with carbon wheels who lives at 2000m altitude will get away with a 36T-42T ratio. For me, living in Belgium (flatland), having Crossride wheels on a 29er hardtail, a 36T in steep sections would simply kill me.
