Trek might change the whole game here with a 29er dh bike. There's a lot to see here.

@Benito-Camelas: an adjustable wrench is pretty much the exact same thing as a rotor truing tool

Xpedo GFX Pedals - Review
These seem pretty dope. Everyone raves about Shimano pedals, but Shimano can miss me with their looseball pedals that need rebuilding every month to not have play and spin badly. These are thin, light, not horribly expensive, and you can even use the awesome thing about Shimano pedals: SPD cleats. Xpedo hit it out of the park, it would seem.

Semenuk Melts Minds at Red Bull Joyride - Video
I thought Brandon was gonna do next next shit like land fakie, but just a halfcab was a little underwhelming imo. Guys regularly do them on cassette hubs, and off features nearly as big, too.

2017 Specialized Enduro - First Ride
Being 5" 5, a 100mm dropper is about the biggest I can use. Small drop isn't a bad thing on small and medium bikes

Intense Primer 29 - Review
@dtm1: Loctite 609 is a product from Loctite that is specifically made for pressfit assemblies that will latee have to be disassembled. It's hella expensive but works better than anything

Intense Primer 29 - Review
Pressfit fucking sucks. If the cups/bearings aren't installed perfectly from the factory with appropriate use of a retaining compound, it's gonna make noise. If you put enough power through the bike to make the bb area flex, it's gonna noise. If it makes noise when you aren't hammering, you have to buy a whole new bb, as removing the cups/bearings destroys them. Then you need to spend $60 on a tiny bottle of Loctite 609 pressfit bearing compound, and use a $200 bearing press to install your bb. Fuck pressfit, I hate it.

High Above Cascadia Hip Pack - Review
@unrooted: A fanny pack can hold more shit, doesn't riase your bike's COG a bunch, amd I have a theory that saddlebags are bad for dropper posts.
