The Solarstorm X2 was so impressive that I convinced 2 of my riding buddies. It was so affordable that their wives gave them the okay. :) So for the same $120, I ended up getting two buddies to ride at night with me. At $120, neither would've bought a light and they wouldn't be riding and I'd be alone. Best $40 bucks I've spent on a bike accessory in a very very long time. Got a well built ultra bright light and two night riding buddies for that price!

My solarstorm x2 has two XML-L2, a 4cell battery lasting 3+hours on high and a 3 hour charger. All for $40 usd shipped. Build quality is excellent. Battery probably doesn't give full listed capacity but I easily get my 2 hours on full without low batt indicators coming on. Why spend nearly 3x as much for half the output and 1/4 the battery and no charger?

K√ľat Sherpa Hitch Rack - Review
This is Kuat's light-duty rack. This is not intended for the PB crowd with DH bikes. I ride XC exclusively with a 29er FS bike (M size) and this rack is absolutely amazing. I had a Thule T2 for a while, but this thing blows it away. Lightweight is absolutely a must as I put the rack on and off each time I go riding. I never leave the rack on the car. And I hang it high in my garage wall and at only 5' 8", the light weight makes hanging it high off the ground (to get it out of the way) very easy. I couldn't ever dream of doing this with the Thule T2. I had to keep the T2 low on the wall which ate up precious storage space. This rack does sit closer to the vehicle than the T2, which could be a problem for the ultra-wide bar crowd. But my bars are 685mm and don't come close to touching the car. In fact, I like how compact it looks and feels on the back of my car. The Thule T2 looked like a trailer hanging out back. I use this exclusively on an A4 and the pedals are close to the bumper, but with no worries of contact. However, to access the trunk with the bikes on, I need to be mindful of pedal position. I do agree that this rack's pivoting mechanism does obscure the plate worse than the T2 though. But no run-ins with the law yet. What isn't mentioned is that this is the ONLY rack available in white. Which matches my white car amazingly! This rack isn't only extremely functional and well built, but looks killer.

Knotty But Nice
Rode it this Sunday. Awesome work guys. Will be joining the DMBA for 2014 for all the trail maintenance, build and advocacy you do for cycling in the region.

StemCaptain is brilliant. I've had an "old" cyclometer on my bar just for the time. Ordered a clock stem cap to get this unsightly accessory off my bar.

Crankworx - Canadian Open XC
Why did Pendrel only win $725 while Kabush won $910? 1 extra lap of work? Crankworx...get with the times.

SRAM's X01 Drivetrain Explained
So...XO1 is still not going to make it onto "cheap" bikes. It will likely still be a top-spec component group. Who at that price point of bike wouldn't shell out the extra $176 for XX1 over XO1? Or is this SRAM's way to basically say: "We'll deeply discount the XO1 group to the OE market, and continue to gouge the consumer for the XO1 and XX1 group at retail." Instead of carrying a 2nd sku for all these parts, just make the XX1 group more affordable and sell more of them.
