BikeYoke DeHy - Review
@groghunter: What you said was clear. You just didn't understand the counter-point. Rear derailers don't cover the cable and are exposed to waaaaaay more water, mud, grit, etc. If rear derailers aren't a problem, then the even better covered and less exposed amount of cable of this dropper lever shouldn't be a concern at all. My entire bike is currently covered with a layer of mud so thick you can't see what color it is... except for the outer ends of the handlebar. They are out of the way of splashed and wheel flung mud.

BikeYoke DeHy - Review
@groghunter: Not enclosed? This setup is less exposed than a derailer cable. If you don't have trouble with your rear derailer freezing, there wont' be any problems with this either. You probably couldn't make it freeze even if you tried.

BikeYoke DeHy - Review
Eh? We ride in freezing conditions all year and cable actuated derailers freezing isn't a problem. In the past decade I've seen more hub palls freeze in the unengaged position than I've seen cables freeze. If anything, cable actuated seat posts should be even less problematic than shifters/derailers; one end is completely enclosed.

What's the Perfect Tire Width For All-Around Riding? - Pinkbike Poll
@Axxe: Agreed. It's unfortunate we ended up with base 10 instead of base 12. The down votes are probably from people who don't understand that it is equally simple yet more easily divisible.

Five Ten Freerider EPS - Review
@warehouse: I've had them since they came out. They are waaaay too warm and air-tight for summer use. They are an insulated, water-proof shoe with basically zero breathability.

Five Ten Freerider EPS - Review
@jamesdunford: The patent on gortex expired years ago and now the same material is found everywhere under different marketing names.

New IMBA National Enduro Series Announced and Schedule Released
1st generation rider here. I've been riding since before IMBA existed. No we don't have to approve of every bike related organization. Just being an organization and/or being bike related does not mean that they automatically deserve our support. Why am I not a fan of IMBA? Why should I be? The choice is not IMBA or nothing. Personally, i've found IMBA to be a sometimes necessary but unsatisfactory ally. Just about every trail advocacy or volunteer group i've dealt with is preferable to IMBA.
