Kona Hei Hei DL 29 - Review
Metric. Just like with 650b wheels, already I can see us as consumers being rail roaded into the new products and standard, so why not just jump in head first when you get the chance. Tbh it does make sense, shock sizing has been a bit ridiculous for years, and the trunnion mount is a brilliant idea if you ask me.

Garbaruk Xtender for Shimano XT 11-speed Cassettes - Review
@bigtim: its the Internet, no undertones are obvious without an accompanying emoji, in this case one of eye rolling.

Garbaruk Xtender for Shimano XT 11-speed Cassettes - Review
@bigtim: why would you want more weight, less ground clearance, more calf danger, more dropped chains and more wear items when you can have a wider ratio version of something you'd have to have anyway? Wide ratio drive trains are by far the best thing to happen to mountain bikes since suspension.

Garbaruk Xtender for Shimano XT 11-speed Cassettes - Review
26t chainring with a 36t cassette has the same low gear as a 34/46, and a 38 with 11 is the same as a 34t on a 10t cog. So your range can be well exceeded with e13s new 9-46 cassette, or matched with the older 9-42 and a 32t chainring. (All these 'the same' ratios sre to the nearest cog). As cassettes like e13s or a 10-50 11spd option becomes more affordable it really will kill the front mech. Also look at the new box one stuff, 4 shifts in either direction.

OneUp Shark 10-Tooth Cluster and MiniDriver - Review
E thirteens new 9-46 cassette will be 511% range, half the weight, and not many more dollars (and thats just based on msrp and 350) plus replaceable sections. Or the older cassette is 489% and $280. Whole lot less faffing about too.

Canyon's Wild DH Drivetrain Disconnect - Eurobike 2016
@albrow22: thats not how it works. Its nothing to do with the wheel. Its the distance between the chainring and cassette getting bigger, the force is along the top of the chain. If your not pedalling, thats a static length of chain. If the gap gets bigger, the chain in effect shortens, meaning one of the cogs needs to move towards the centre of the chain. Yes, the cassette csn move forwards, but its the kick you feel through the crank on hard landings, when the tyre has gripped the ground and the rotational force would have to accelerate the wheel, which is harder than rotating the crank backwards. Pedal kick is a real thing, its been a problem for mtbs since rear suspension was invented.

Canyon's Wild DH Drivetrain Disconnect - Eurobike 2016
Its chain growth thats causing the problem, I.e. the distance between the chainring and cassette grows as the suspension moves through its travel. Watch the first 5 seconds of the video repeatedly and youll see why it wouldn't work
