Race Face Turbine R Wheelset and Vault Hub
@deadmeat25: Any hub using DT Swiss's Star Ratchet is great and of course there is Chris King's Ring Drive. Neither of them use pawls and I've kicked the hell out of them with no failures yet. Sprag clutches are interesting but heavy and also very tough to do right (very tight manufacturing tolerances).

Race Face Turbine R Wheelset and Vault Hub
@theautomator: Exactly, I won't touch a pawl-type hub with a 10' pole. I'm very curious about the Onyx hubs but I'll stick with King or DT which have been bombproof for me. Any pawl hub I've tried never lasted more than 10 rides (except for Shimano but they're non-convertible).

North Shore Bike Smashing - Video
That's no case. Just a back wheel tap! I like the old school post drop but let's all pitch in and buy him a Race Face dropper.

Smith Launches New Route and Rover Bike Helmets - Video
Smith helmets could use a bit more venting but they are hands-down the best fitting helmets on the market (for my noggin). Great build quality too. If they've kept the fit of the Forefront, these should be welcome additions to Smith's lineup. Nice work Smith!

I'm guessing they're made by ESI.

Super Alloy Racing Springs - Leogang World Cup 2016
@mudmandhbrazil: "Alloy" is commonly used to describe aluminum alloy but this is incorrect (and frustrating). Alloy is any metal not made purely from its base element. Alloying elements are generally added to increase properties such as strength and corrosion resistance.

Behind the Bike: Developing the XXL Santa Cruz V10
@fartymarty: I love bike geo theory and I read that article a few tens when it came out. I'm a big fan of longer geo on more aggro mtbs but their purpose is entirely different than a standard road bike,

Behind the Bike: Developing the XXL Santa Cruz V10
@SintraFreeride: No, it is because they fit well and handle well as they are with far more years of evo,union than mtbs. I don't run a long stem, the seat angle is steeper than most mtbs and I'm stretched out very nicely (I ride Giant road bikes - no pun intended). Go ahead and get a long, slack road bike. Might be ok for doddling along but won't handle and climb like most people want. Road bikes are akin to XC bikes and not Enduro bikes so no need to make them suitable for steep and gnarly downhills IMO.
