Hydraulic rim brakes = melted tire sidewalls on downhills. The rim would heat enough to melt the tire bead...

THAT Was a Bike: 1988 Yeti FRO
the three cables on the top tube, was so awesome because they were far from mud build up, until you crashed with them and they did a number on your inner thigh. Somehow in milliseconds, hundreds of hairs on your leg would wrap around them and get yanked out in unison. Today's riding shorts would alleviate the issue of course, but back then we rode in whatever...

Pinkbike Poll: Are You Scared of Change?
The only change that concerns me is PRICE. The sport I love has quite frankly become unaffordable, very quickly. When the MIDDLE is north of $4K, I have to turn and walk away from my LBS. Find a frame and start scouring the online deals for parts at reasonable prices. Warehouses are full of recent new unsold and rapidly depreciating tech, all over the globe.

Pinkbike Poll: How many Gears Do You Need?
It's November. I need an internal gearbox that can take an offroad pounding. One bombproof chain, two sprockets. Now when my cassette is full of mud, at best I get four gears anyways....its called "off road" for a reason....but all the equipment is designed for California in summer conditions....I ride a grit filled universe. Number of gears is the least of my concerns. Gimmie performance and durability.

Bromont Bridge...two decades of teaching you to pay attention even as your run is almost done. What is the saying, "most accidents happen close to home"

the wear pattern is troubling. Looks like it is chunking instead of slow even wear.

Nice build! Is it easy to align the rear brake caliper? Load the bolts? That in the brake tucked in the frame stuff scares me!
