Desperately seeking out remaining pockets of getting rad while bones and joints fall apart after 39 years of mis-use and damage.

Ask Pinkbike: Upgrade an Entry-Level Bike, Zee for XC, Bracing for Autumn's Chill
I've been on 12-36 with a Race Face narrow-wide 28t and the Zee FR rear mech for about a year. Been super psyched overall, it works fine. I can pretty much climb everything my XX1 friends do, depending on how hungover I am Sunday mornings sometimes I have to push.

Wrapping Up the Randoms - Interbike 2014
(not a hipster) I have a pair of those shoes. They are different from most shoes where there's some super gluey glue bonding the tread part to the upper - these literally have the rubber from the sole impregnating the fabric of the upper. There's no chance of delamination. The shoes are comfortable and a good value for cruising around. The rubber however is not real sticky and there's 0% chance I would wear these on any kind of bike ride.

What Tyler Found at Indoors Too - Interbike 2014
ACRE is the mtb division of Mission Workshop. They are based in SF so need to charge big prices to pay their pricey rent. Partial kidding aside, most if not all of their gear is made in the USA which also impacts prices, and they want the market that buys $10K SC Nomad/XX1/Enve.

Pretty sure the Saints start with a forging (like most Shimano parts) but yeah I follow what you're saying. Plus the relatively low volumes of these kinds of pedals don't justify a higher rate of production processes.

That pretty much explains it. The Dark Side. I slept through that class.

Can someone explain the pedal market to me? I have a background in product development and industrial design, and can't wrap my head around pedals that cost more than $100. Its like bikinis for women, the less material is left, the more it costs. But is the value truly in the amount of material CNC'd away, and that makes for a good pedal? I ride Saint flats…they are thicker than most aftermarket pedals, with less-sharp spikes…they seem fine.

I like seeing UK country ride photos. Makes me want to visit someday. Climate and environment like the PNW but with more Braveheart.

The Real Stars of Outdoor Demo - Interbike 2014
Open Road was at the corner of S Crouse and E Adams, near that parking garage. There was a coffee shop connected to it where we'd eat damn near every day. Sometimes we would just bomb around campus and put together little renegade trails. We rode (and bouldered) in Oakwood Cemetary sometimes too - on a steel hard tail that was real downhilling action! I miss riding around CNY, especially the big rock outcroppings.

The Real Stars of Outdoor Demo - Interbike 2014
I went to SU (in the 90's), and mostly rode at Clark Reservation and that quarry between South Campus and Clark. Sometimes we went across the valley to White Hills (I think thats what it was called). I did a couple local races too. I didn't have a car so was limited to pedaling distance but that's where I cut my teeth as a mountain biker and still have fond memories of riding in the CNY region. I wrenched for a while at Open Road near the SU campus too - they still around?
