Dear Bike Industry - Opinion
Am I the only guy who doesn't have a problem sourcing components for any bikes from the last 10 to 15 years. I could hold more sympathy for the notion of obsolete if it was no longer possible to buy what I need. Still able to buy 135 hubs 8 speed brake blocks for rim brakes. Front mechs in every conceivable diameter. Square taper bottom brackets. Standard 1" 1/8 headsets. I'm genuinely not seeing a problem unless you've been hoarding parts that you can no longer use on a new bike.

Zink vs Clementz: Birzman Tire Changing Contest Winner Revealed - Video
I hope it's some horrendous tyre/rim combo that just will not yield to any amount of thumb force. Could be fun to watch

Ask Pinkbike: Volume Spacers, Finding Motivation and Long Travel 29" Forks
@mikekazimer: that is good news. I thought I was going to have to step down a wheel size to get a burlier build

@briceps: I'm not entirely sure it isn't a typo. I can't find a single pair anywhere to buy or preorder. I haven't seen any news about it either. I trust Mike is in the know. I really could do these in my life

Wheel Building at Reynolds Cycling w/ Julia Hofmann - Video
@WAKIdesigns: i think the original point may have lost its way a bit. In not expecting anyone to be marvellous immediately but there was the insinuation that a home mechanic can't build a safe wheel without tensiometers, truing jigs, dishing tools and so on. While it is a more complex task than many, it is still one well within the capabilities of a home mechanic with a good eye and a bit of savy. Not bellitling your efforts, if anything I'm encouraging more home mechanics to have a go and not be put off by the pseudo science.

@WAKIdesigns: they come out straighter and stronger if you sit in a circle surrounded by candles listening to Judas Priest drinking sacrificial cider.
