Giant's New Trance and 2017 Bikes - Eurobike Media Days, Kirchberg 2016
As of a few years ago, Giant made 2.7 million bikes a year for other brands (such as the example you gave) but Giant only make the bikes to the specification of the brand in question. Yeti design and concept that bike you mention, then go to Giant with the dimensions and specification, who then make it as instructed by Yeti. Giant is not at fault here. There must be a flaw in the design of the frame, and for that you can blame Yeti. The evidence for this is the millions of other carbon bikes Giant make that haven't cracked.

Giant Faith 0 - Size Small

$999 GBP
Selling my 2010 Giant Faith 0 as it is no longer needed. The bike is in good overall condition. It has some scuffs and marks in all the usual places (I tried to include as much as I could in the pictures). The paintwork on the rims has started to peel away a little bit around some of the spoke eyelets (see picture). I have replaced the chain and cassette due to wear as well as a few other parts and since then it has sat unused. The rear shock pictured is a Vivid 5.1 but this had a scratch on the piston, so it has been replaced with a Rockshox Vivid R2C which I have just had serviced by the SRAM tech center. It now has a dark grey spring rather than black as pictured. The super short seatpost has also been replaced with a full size, brand new Giant Connect seatpost. The following components are brand new; Shimano Zee 10 speed shifter Shimano Zee 10 speed rear mech Shimano 105 10 speed cassette (11-28) Shimano CN-HG95 10 speed chain Giant Connect handlebars (640mm width) Giant Connect seatpost Full spec is as follows; Giant Faith 0 2010 frame (small) FSA Headset Rockshox Totem forks Rockshox Vivid R2C rear shock (450lb spring) (Freshly serviced by the SRAM tech center) Truvativ Holzfeller stem Giant Connect seatpost Giant 'Faith' branded saddle Giant Connect handlebars (640mm width) *Brand new* Avid Elixir CR brakes front + rear Avid rotors (203mm) Sun Ringle MTX 31 rims Giant Tracker front hub Sun Ringle Jumping Flea rear hub VSixty pedals Raceface Atlas chainset (36t) Raceface Bottom Bracket Shimano Zee 10 speed shifter *Brand new* Shimano Zee 10 speed rear mech *Brand new* Shimano 105 10 speed cassette (11-28) *Brand new* Shimano CN-HG95 10 speed chain *Brand new* MRP G2 chainguide Continental Rubber Queen tyres (lots of life left, tread hairs still present on some of the side treads) Also included are the following bits and pieces; Giant Manual Giant Full Suspension quick start guide Dropout swap guide Rockshox Totem Sticker pack Rockshox Rear suspension manual Raceface extra parts for the chainset Set of alternative dropouts for the bike in matching anodized blue 2 bump stops for the rear shock Please let me know if you would like any further details or photos and I'll be happy to help. I am located in West Sussex, so I am happy for the bike to be collected, but otherwise it will be sent via courier.

Shimano XTR Trail Wheels - Review
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know Shimano owns the patent but licenses other brands to use the standard. Mavic and DT Swiss have (maybe still do) make center-lock hubs.

Shimano XTR Trail Wheels - Review
Centerlock rotors are absolutely amazing, and it's just a shame it isn't the standard. It literally takes seconds to remove or fit a centerlock rotor, compared to minutes with a 6 bolt rotor and a torx screwdriver or multi-tool. There's no new proprietary tool to fit them, it's the same tool as a cassette lock-ring The design of the system is much less likely to come loose, or move under braking. The whole system is generally lighter than a 6 bolt design as far as I'm aware. It's a lot easier to strip out a little Torx bolt than it is a cassette lock-ring. You can get an adapter to run 6-bolt rotors on a center-lock hub, so you don't HAVE to use them, even if you have a center-lock hub. I would also say it's a lot harder to cross thread a centre lock hub, than a standard disc mount.

Zum Zum Balance Bikes - Steve Peat Helping Make Pushbikes for Kids
That's a pretty valid question. The product itself looks nice and all, but to me it seems over-engineered for the intended users (2-3 year olds). The NFC feature is, lets face it, a gimmick. It's pretty much completely useless and a waste of money. If you need to help identify your bike out of many, a simple sticker would solve that. Also, storing warranty and owner info in the NFC tag? So if someone steals the bike, they now have the warranty details along with "information about the bike's owner"? I just don't see the benefit of embedding an NFC tag in the frame. I know the tags are dirt cheap, but it must cost extra money to build that into the frame. Don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on the bike, I'm just pointing out a few things.
