Bikethrasher

I'm a Trail rider through and through. I'm never satisfied, Thus I am constantly searching for the perfect trail bike. This being the case. I spend lots of time demoing bikes. I generally don't comment on bikes unless I've ridden them. I sacrifice pretty much everything for the sake of owning really nice bikes.

Opinion: The Fight for the Future of Our Mountains
@wobblegoblin: That’s a pretty short sighted view. I guess all of us that live in and around ski areas should be thankful most people don’t share your opinion. I do agree public lands need to be respected and yes the mess racers leave behind pisses many of us off. But you need to remember that many of the trails we ride wouldn’t exist without the tax dollars that those events bring in. In case you haven’t noticed our country is struggling especially small towns. Fruita is a prime example of some guys building some trails on public land then having a race on them and seemingly overnight a dying small town came back to life. Is it perfect no but perfect doesn’t exist in the real world. I have never entered a MTB race nor do I ever plan to but I would never take that away from someone who wants to.

Opinion: The Fight for the Future of Our Mountains
@wobblegoblin: Either your Trolling or your clueless. You do realize that almost every outdoor race for cycling, running, skiing, and swimming are held on public property right?

@warmerdamj: On the contrary the only adjustment needed would be the barrel adjuster at the shifter to dial in cable tension. It would be as easy to get perfect shifting as it is to get your dropper post dialed. Talk about the realizing the dream.

Vivo Cycling Previews All-Aluminum 12-Speed Derailleur
@vinay: I’ve spent all fall on Transmission while nice and all it definitely seems like it was intended for ebikes. Incidentally it worked best on the one ebike I demoed. It was nice and shifted really smooth most of the time, but Fast on demand shifting is why I switched to SRAM nearly 20 years ago. Transmission fails in that regard. So I sold the Transmission group and picked up a fresh cable XX1 group that shifts way faster and on demand at less than half the price. Oh it’s lighter as well. I would love to see a cable version of the transmission derailleur because there are definite benefits to its design. Maybe it’s just me but I’m still not ready for electronics or motors on my bike.

Review: 6 Months with the New DT Swiss 240 DEG Hubs
Dt Swiss 240s were most reliable, easiest to maintain hubs I ever owned and somehow the lightest as well.

Pinkbike Poll: Center Lock or 6-Bolt Brake Rotor Mounting?
I use both and haven’t ever had a problem with either. I can’t say I’d care if one or the other went away though. If we want to standardize some stuff to simplify our bikes there are better places to do it. Headsets, Bottom Brackets, and Cranksets I’m looking at you.
