First Look: Shimano's New Deore XT Group
for all the hate they are getting the range that you get from the cassettes is just ridiculous, having not only a larger tooth but a smaller on at the big end makes it more like having something close to a 50t cog at the top end to get you a similar final drive to stop you spinning out, the 10t is what really makes it, but means it would be impossible to fit on a standard hub, that said they do need to be cheaper and it is a pain having a special hub. the mechs/shifters are so close between the two brands that they are more or less negligible, they are both damn good if youre above x7/ slx,

formula are nice brakes, loads of power and light with a great lever feel but for a day to day biker they are impractical, they are difficult to bleed and there is next to no pad clearance that makes setting up without rubbing near enough impossible. and those little torq bolts on all the clamps are annoying as well the only problem i have with shimano is that servo wave adjuster is pointless, shimano just get rid you dont need it and it's not helping anyone

after owning the new xtr trail brakes i have concluded my saint brakes completely pointless, there is no need for more power than an xtr can give you and im not even running an 8 inch rotor

FOX Factory Series Float 34 - Review
basically they are all so paranoid about what each other are doing that they end up copying each other for fear of being left behind and so end up making the same fork, so stop being a spanner about it it means more competition and keeps companies from being able to just put prices where they like them

Trickstuff Cleg 4 Disc Brake - Review
no way id pull my xtr brakes iff my bike and replace it with that,,, they dont look very good for a "handmade" product and to be frank at that sort of price thats the only strike they need, why buy something ugly when we have a market full of good looking kit that works every bit as well, but to be fair the new xtr trail brakes make me think there is no point in saint, they will throw you over the bar with little lever effort from the rider and thats with a 180 rotor, nevermind a 200

Ask Pinkbike: Can Tires Be Too Wide? Should I Be Using All My Shock Stroke? Is 140 Millimeters Enough Travel for Enduro?
there is no substitute for bike skill, if you can ride a bike well you will do well pretty much regardless of what you ride, 160 may be seen as being perfect for enduro but that doesn't mean it is the only thing that will do, 140 is definitely enough even if most people prefer to run more
