There is only one word for this. YES! this makes up for no more NWD. The only thing missing is the Claw.

First Look: e*thirteen Extended Range Cog
Freehubs should just be steel end of. When my hopes kick the bucket they will be replaced with steel ones. 6yr old atomlab aircorp has no real signs of damage and nor does the 7yr old GI freehub i have yet my hopes are already pretty beaten up. Still cant understand why hope dont offer them new with steel considering the prices are the same if not cheeper for the steel, sure theres extra weight but weight vs an extra £60, no brainer. you end up paying £60 to add 60ish grams in weight, how does that work in the modern MTB world? :P

First Look: SRAM Guide Trail Brakes – Power, Precision and Control
Dont think its just Avid Sherbert, i remember RS getting a hell of a lot of flack for dukes psylos and other forks because the quality was out the window just before SRAM bought them and turned them around. Marzo got a lot of flack in that 07-09 period for QC issues. Manitou had the same for the travis just failing and generally crap quality on most forks right before hayes bought them out. I think the thing with Avid might be some people remember how good their Vbrakes were and where as shimano have made a good jump into the hydro market avid havent thrown anything out there yet that people have sat back and gone "holy sh*t i need me a pair of them". Hope have a good rep, hayes did have, shimano certainly do where as avid generally, and i stress the generally, most people have a "meh" sort of attitude about

Simple thing here is avid have a piss poor design, it doesn't hold up long term. that being the case go back to the drawing board, don't mod it and hope it gets better. yes you can make them feel good but how long does that last and how much ball ache and cost is there to put it right? when there are cheaper alternatives that have an as good if not better feel and much longer service intervals you've gotta maybe take a step back an rethink and avid have been running this same basic design (allbeit with tweeks) since god knows when.

RockShox Reveals Inverted XC Fork
If you think about it, whats the point? they had far too much over lap with the lyrik and totem, the existing lyrik can be setup as 180mm travel, you dont need 40mm stanchions really. as much as i love the idea of the totem it was a 2.7kg fork that only offered 20mm more travel than the original lyrik at 2.2kg, not that i care that much about weight, but....
