e*thirteen's TRS Race 9-46 Tooth Cassette Now Available
who only replaces a portion of a cassette? All the gears are bedded in to that chain. New gears won't like the old chain and a new chain won't like the old gears you leave in. Your chain will skip and your knees won't like you.

Pinkbike Poll: Fashion or Function?
Ugly and functional becomes a fashion all its own. Look at Hayabusa, Veyron almost all German cars. Ugly makes you stand out physically so if it stands out performance wise they'll knock it out of the park. I think small bikes look tougher and lighter so I sacrifice as much comfort as I can to squeeze into the smallest bike I can comfortably fit. That's the opposite of current fashion but I'm a slave to my own.

Was he building up the berms with his roost? That's the sign of a real builder rider.

Alutech Unveil the Sennes DH 29
@diggerandrider: I'm 6'3", all legs and arms, and I've been riding an old Trek 24" kids bike and loving it. Got it for free as a water jump bike. Weighs the same as that Unno enduro. Manuals so easy and is manoeuvrable in the air because of the insanely low top tube and how easy it is to affect the bike. Not just short guys like small bikes.

Minnaar Means Business in 2017
@WAKIdesigns: Way to call me out on my selfish environmental ways. I hate DDT because I love Perigrine Falcons. I missed them while I lived in the states. I do love Lions, Cheetah and Hunting dogs but I also believe that endangered species carry genes that have biological information going back Millenia both expressed and dormant and that their extinction is like burning books. You protect the apex predators and you protect the entire ecosystem most importantly the soil. We only lived in balance with nature in Africa because territorial warfare, and disease kept our numbers in check and the animals there evolved defences against us not because of nomadism. There are other types of resin out there that are natural and hemp composites or at least ballistic grade carbon should be available as a frame material in stead of this fragile crap they pedal us. If nature isn't in balance how do you explain the worlds stability in the face of the 40% increase in the out put of the sun since life first evolved? You don't believe that all life creates the conditions for life to continue as proposed by Gaia theory? You should get your head out of the sky and back to earth. If smart people like you don't believe in this place what hope do the rest of us have?

Minnaar Means Business in 2017
@WAKIdesigns: I think the link you gave was wrong it's about galaxies travelling at the speed of light. Don't want a medal just honestly trying to alleviate personal guilt I guess. The organic food thing is to use less fossil fuel inputs for its production as well as eating native species instead of ecosystem destroying introduced ones. Local or self grown is best but I'm not able to do that much yet. Mountain biking gives value to wilderness areas that might otherwise be bulldozed. I agree that all are just ways to slow things down until H3 fusion and procreation enlightenment could maybe save some of us. Carbon has the biggest footprint followed by Ti followed by rare earth alloys like mine followed by Al followed by steel followed by bamboo according to bike magazine except for the rare earth and bamboo which I am just guessing at. In the mad max future I think the guy with the solar refuelled ebike and the bow and arrow will last the longest. If there's no wilderness left when all the Big Mac eaters die off and us out doorsy types are all that's left there won't be any food for us either.

Ask Pinkbike: Brakes For a Big Guy, and Should I Drill My Frame?
Cable rub is the reason I want to route internally and because Karim Amour did it when he rode my bike. Another negative of doing it I can think of is moisture and dirt getting in your headset through the holes.
