SRAM X01 Drivetrain - Review
Agreed. 1x10, clutch RD, and narrow-wide is the way to go. Save your hard earned money for bike trips!

Video: Matt Hunter and the Shimano XTR M9000
Honestly, I want to see that ad on national TV. It just makes riding look like so much fun; I think it could expose mountain biking to a lot more people and capture their interest.

FOX Unveils a New 36 RC2
I just hope they aren't referring to a NEW proprietary oil...it's those types of things that make me mad (just like the proprietary shock mount Specialized uses in their Enduro bikes...really limits your options for replacements and spares).

Video: ENVE M-Series
Ok...so that was the COOLEST commercial I have ever seen. It was almost 7 minutes of action-packed mountain biking goodness. This is probably the only commercial I have ever wanted to watch another time.

The Tradition of ABUS
This is a really cool story. Thanks for sharing. I have been biking for a long time and had never heard of this brand until now. I own a very nice Kryptonite because it's the standard around here. Maybe I will add another nice lock set when I get a new bike this year. Not enough people take their bike security seriously. They are high value pieces of equipment, and conveniently enough, are quick to escape on (go figure). Spend the money and get some quality security for your ride - or you will be bummed if it ever gets swiped!

Park Tool EK-1 Tool Kit - Review
At least it has the bottle opener...seriously though, it's one hell of a bottle opener and definitely the most used tool in my house.

Video: Bernat Guardia vs the Intense Tracer 275C
I've always wanted to see a wiener dog get high-centered. It's a life goal of mine.

Press Release - Commencal Launches "Ride Alpha" Components
I thought that was actually a decent video of the manufacturing. While it was intended to be artsy, this video actually showed how they fixture the parts and their order of operations used to create the stem (something I'm actually doing right now on a manual mill, and I can say it isn't exactly easy). As far as the coolant goes...that is what allows them to take heavier cuts and work at faster speeds. Using flood coolant is a major part of the process for a lot of CNC manufacturing. I don't see why that upset you so much! haha

Learn More About Your Local Bike Shop
I've been riding for a long time, and there was only ever 1 shop had consistently crappy service. Needless to say, I haven't been back since 2005-ish...to be honest I don't even know if they are still in business and I don't care - there are lots of great shops in Washington I will gladly give my money to. I honestly don't mind if the shop is busy so I have to wait (in fact I think that's great to see). The main issues I've had were related to ordering the wrong/incompatible parts. I am easy to deal with, but I know my stuff and usually have a specific request when it comes to ordering parts that are not commonly stocked. The closest bike shop to me only sell Specialized "because they are the best." While I have no problem with them promoting their main brand, I find it odd that they sell only ONE brand of completes! It seems too much like a new car dealership if you ask me. However the staff is awesome and they stock TONS of nice bikes, so I guess I can't complain too much...

I love that bike, but HATE thieves. Did you ever recover it?
