Day 1 Results: EWS Tasmania 2019
@WAKIdesigns: I ride both. I have slightly better control of the bike with clips, but that is because I've ridden clips for years, it's a confidence thing. On my road bike I use them because of better clearance. My touring/commuting rig has flats, so does my fat bike. Sometimes I wish I had less grip on my flats. I like flats better, but am a more confident rider in clips.

The 2020 Orange Five Celebrates 20 Years With a Longer, Slacker Overhaul
Frankly, as someone who spends a fair amount of time with a tig torch in my hand at work, the welds look good. Aluminum requires a lot of heat, to weld long welds in thin sheet is challenging.

FSA's New High-End Crankset Skips the Carbon - Taipei Cycle Show 2019
I've broken two of the older 6700 series Ultegra cranks due to separation of the driveside crank arm. One was quite catastrophic and it damaged the driveside chainstay. The other I caught before complete failure. In both cases Shimano warrantied the crank, and the latest failure they replaced it with the R8000 crank, its only been about 9mos but its holding up. Both of the 6700 cranks failed after about 18mos.

Ridden & Rated: 5 Gloves for Shoulder Season
I've been using Fox Attack Water gloves for 1.5 seasons and have been really pleased. All Fox gloves fit a little tight on me, so I run a size up and get the XXLs. They keep you dry enough and keep the cool out, they're too light for riding in the 0-5c but work great for 5-15c range. (Anything over 12 I have to go to summer gloves). I sweat, a lot. I find the only downside to the Attack Waters is breathability. On warmer days or if the temp comes up mid ride I'll start to sweat inside the gloves pretty heavily. It doesn't reduce grip though, and I find the thin palm to be perfect for grip and dexterity. In 18mos of ownership and probably 10mos of use, there are some threads pulling out on the top of the cuff on the back. I've had some minor wrecks nothing on pavement or serious rocks, and they've held up without any scuffs.

First Ride: Santa Cruz Megatower
Can I install the longer chainstay insert only on the left side? I want to help it turn left for NASCAR style enduros here in the states.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Ride a Hardtail Anymore?
@m1dg3t: I hear you on the fork.. I rode rigid until I could get an affordable Fox 32. However, if you look around, you can get an affordable dropper and it'll change your mind. I finally got a dropper two seasons ago and that's the one thing I wouldn't give up.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Ride a Hardtail Anymore?
I would have loved to keep some of my old 90s bikes, but I broke them all. All of them. I do have a half dozen old frames hanging on the walls of my garage.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Ride a Hardtail Anymore?
@alexsin: Piviot live has gotten much better, they used to be seasonal for most people, and more often for people that put the hammer down. I don't think that is a disqualifier for me on a susser, it's just one of the many reasons I have remained on a HT. For a long time, I didn't want to chase trends in suspension design too, but the suspensions have gotten so good that I don't worry about it anymore. At 42 I've been thinking about getting a susser for some of my longer weekends in the saddle, the fatigue a HT can lay on you is pretty substantial. But justifying another complete bike for the occasional weekend is pretty tough. If I get bored with my Rootdown (unlikely) I may look into a Guerrilla Gravity.
