Xprezo Adhoc - Review

Specialized 2015: The Enduro Gets 27.5-Inch Wheels
This is nothing new for the big S. Jason Chamberlain said the same thing a few years ago about 150mm hubs on the Demo saying that 135mm was lighter, more available, and plenty stiff....then not a year or two later the demo is spec'd with a 150mm rear end. The really funny thing is that the Specialized factory team still runs custom rear ends with the 135mm spacing. I wouldn't be surprised if they continue to have 26" frames and wheels available for their pros well into the future...What people want to buy and what actually works the best are two different things.

Pinkbike Poll: What Style of Grip Do You Prefer?
Use them on all my bikes including the DH (regular chunky). Super comfy, don't slip, lighter than almost anything, and great vibration damping.....just run a tough end plug like ODIs

Ask Pinkbike - Plasti Dipping a Frame, Finding the Right Headset
The baking temperature for power coat is very low and will in no way affect the heat treat or structural integrity of the frame... If it did, they wouldn't powder coat new frames. The only precaution I'd take with an aluminum frame is to possibly chemically strip the old paint off...sand/media blasting can be hard on the material if your not careful

That would be awesome! I tried going back to gears for this race season and lasted a day before I went back to single. After almost two years now, gears just seem like a handicap...I ride way more clumsy and lose my focus when I worry about what gear I'm in.
