WTB Asym Wide-Format Rims - Press Release
I can say that after running and breaking multiple carbon rims, there's definitely a need for aluminum XC/trail rims. It depends on the course, riding style, and tire setup, but there's a significant difference in feel between carbon and aluminum, and I do prefer aluminum rims in certain situations.

Are you Concerned About the Demise of Bike Shops? - Pinkbike Poll
We need bike shops. Online retailers won't be there on your riding trip when you break a derailleur hanger. Online retailers won't be there on a Sunday morning with a new tire and a smile when you slash a sidewall 10 mins into a ride. Online retailers won't be organizing group rides to get women, kids, and beginners into the sport in your area. Online retailers won't be out at trail work days giving the local runs some love. Online retailers won't sponsor and support local high school racers. Online retailers won't box your bike up for a trip and build it when it comes back. Online retailers won't host monthly tech classes with hands-on mechanic skill-building. Online retailers won't have employees who ride the same trails you ride, to offer their recommendations on bikes, tire set-up, and routes. Sure, you may save money buying online, but there's a lot of value that your LBS offers which can't be measured.

Getting rid of my America color scheme bike after this election.... I'm selling my beloved custom (dream) build Camber Evo 29. You've probably heard, but this is one of the best bikes of our common era, and definitely the best one I've ever owned. I built it up in late May, with the intention of getting good at riding bikes and winning a bunch of races. Neither of those really happened, but I did come into a very large debt to a certain university, so I'm liquidating my fleet to stay enrolled in my classes. Because of this, I've priced my bike to sell. If you look around, 2014-15 bikes are going for about $4k, and aren't nearly spec'd as elegantly. The frame is a unique, ONE-OFF paint sample from Specialized. There is no other Camber with this paint scheme, which I happen to love. I had custom decals made for the Monarch+ Debonair to match. I also put an EVO link on the frame to slacken the head angle and increase frame travel. The bike is slightly over-forked with a 140mm Pike, which makes it an absolute monster. Specs: Frame: FACT 9m carbon front triangle, 29" EVO geometry, FACT IS construction, M5 alloy rear triangle, tapered headtube, carbon PF30 BB, full internal cable routing, 142mm dropouts, sealed cartridge bearing pivots, replaceable derailleur hanger, 125mm travel Fork: RockShox Pike RCT3 29, Solo Air spring, tapered alloy steerer, w/ lockout, compression, rebound adjust, 15mm thru-axle, 140mm travel, with seal kit Shock: RockShox Monarch Plus RC3 Rear Shock with DebonAir4, with seal kit Hubs: Hope Pro 4 EVO, 142x12mm, 100x15mm, 4 Pawl Ratchet with 44 tooth engagement (8.2 deg), 6-bolt (Front: Red, Rear: Black) Rims: WTB Carbon Ci24, 24mm inner width, 430g, TCS tubeless, 32h, NEW rear rim Spokes: DT Competition 1.8-2.0mm (290mm) Crankset: Sram Carbon S-2200 (same as X01 and XX1 cranks), BB30, direct mount, 175mm length, Red Rear Derailleur: Shimano XTR Carbon RD-M9000 11S, Med Cage Shifter: Shimano XTR SL-M9000 11SPD Chain: Sram XX1 HollowPin Chainring: Wolftooth Components Drop-Stop N/W 34t, Sram Direct Mount Cassette: SRAM XG-1195 **X01** 11 Speed Cassette, 275g Stem: Thomson Elite X4 Stem, 40mm length, 155g Dropper Post: KS Lev Integra 30.9 150mm travel, 435mm length, with SouthPaw remote lever Handlebar: **Option** of NEW Easton Haven Carbon 750mm x 20mm rise, or Ibis Carbon 740mm flat bar Brakes: Shimano XT M8000, finned pads, cut to length (Freshly bled) Rotors: Shimano XT SM-RT86 6 Bolt Ice-Tech rotors, 203mm and 180mm Seat collar: Specialized Command Post Grips: Specialized SIP XL, black Saddle: Not included (my rear likes this one, you probably have a favorite too) [I]I can throw in a Specialized Henge upon request[/I] Pedals XTR - Not included (these are like toothbrushes, personal preference) [I]Can be included upon request[/I] Bottle cage, Garmin mount, and clock topcap not included unless requested. Price as listed: $4000 That said, I have another wheelset on this bike currently: WTB KOM i25 front rim laced to Roval hub. WTB ASYM i29 rear rim laced to a Roval branded (DT 350 36t ratchet) rear hub. Both wheels are set up tubeless and laced with DT Competition straight-pull spokes. The front is recently laced, and I can sell the bike with a 100% fresh, new rear rim with the same spec. TWO PRICE OPTIONS: With WTB Aluminum Wheelset: $3100 With WTB Ci24 Carbon Wheelset: $4000 Thanks for looking! PM me with any questions! Buyer pays shipping and PayPal fees.

Emily Batty's Trek Top Fuel Bike Check - Vallnord XC World Cup 2016
@Ninjasstolemytv: whoosh. Shimano Centerlock rotors like the ones she's running don't use screws. Also, how often do you replace rotors mid-race?
