OneUp 44 Tooth X-Cog - Review
My 42T on my X01 11spd cassette is a fair bit more worn than the rest of the cog. I think this is largely due to a slightly mis-matched q-factor to chain line, as well as the fact that much of our climbing is quite variable in grade and technical features, requiring a lot of hard shifts (I know I know!). I am not looking forward to the day that I have to drop $260 on CRC for a new cassette...

OneUp 44 Tooth X-Cog - Review
Not only that in increasing gear range, but we are talking about suspension performance improvements when going to a bigger front chain ring. If there is one disadvantage to the 1x11 drive trains and ultra small front rings is that suspension pedaling performance with the horst link bikes has been sacrificed. This 44t ring gives 1x11 users a way of gaining some of that performance back AND expanding their range possibly.

Hey! Selling a great condition 2014 Rock Shox Pike RC, 650b. It is 160mm travel with a tapered steerer and 15mm axle.

This is March in the Okanagan?
Have you ridden Giant's Head Mountain in Summerland? It's a pretty fun little trail. Not too long, and the climb to the top makes you hate your life at times, but the view from the very top is pretty amazing. There was a local guy who did some trails work up there a few years ago, but when I was chatting with him once he said he was moving away, so I don't know if the work ever continued.

Stay away from Crawford for now. It still needs some time to firm up. There have already been a lot of mountain bikers (and fat bikers... AGGHHHH!) up there doing a lot of damage to the trails. Smith Creek has some mud above the lookout with snow at the upper parts, so easy there. Rose Valley is your best bet right now, or Knox Mountain. We need to give our more ridden trails time to dry otherwise it's gonna be TOTAL shit by May/June...

Liteville 601 MK 3 - Review
I think it will be a lot less than "one percent" who are riding this bike. Regardless, looks (and sounds) like a well designed bike for the intended market.

BOS Suspension Opens Its First International Office
Except that Vegas is pretty epicenter for alot of riding in the United States. There isn't just Bootleg (which is pretty awesome), but within a reasonable drive in virtually any direction, you can reach riding that really does rival anything we have here in Canada. Yes Vegas is close to (if not in) a desert, but the areas around are still quite hilly with some pretty phenomenal riding. If you haven't travelled to that part of the US to go riding, and especially if you haven't ventured a few hours out of Vegas in any direction to go riding... you are really missing out and need to add it to your riding bucket list. And, lets not forget Interbike...

Norco Range C 7.2 - Review
In Canada, it's nearly $2000 less (well, $1700) than the comparable specialized (Enduro Expert carbon), and actually around the same weight, if not negligible where the weight difference is in terms of riding feel. The closest priced Enduro would be the Enduro Elite, at $5700, which gets you an Aluminum frame (vs Carbon), and is almost 1.5 lbs heavier. And for what it's worth, aside from having a hoist link, the suspension curves are ENTIRELY different between the Range's ART design, and the Enduro FSR. I've ridden both an Enduro and the Range extensively, and can attest that they feel like entirely different bikes.
