Living the Dream: David Rosen's Flow Motion Titanium Hardtail
@duzzi: Where's the fiction here? The truth in the logic he was conveying here instantly registered with me. The way my 165mm Horst Link bike slinks / squats into its travel and lightens the front end on climbs easily has it losing many degrees of seat tube angle. Not hard to notice compared to a hardtail. A hardtail - especially one with a supple fork - also tends to fulcrum around the rear axle and drive the fork.

Round Up: 5 Lubes for Wet Weather Riding
The original (Blue) is da bomb. Lasts long, smells great (I snort it... bye-bye brain cells) and it's many rides before the chain and shifting goes metal to metal. Was able to get it shipped to Cali from Amazon last week. It's best to start with a totally clean and dry chain, then only use this one - don't lube with random other lubes. Ideally lube the chain the night before so most of the carrier evaporates and little or no dust attracts to it during the ride.

First Ride: Scott Ransom 900 Tuned
Ahh... another intro / sketch, a month after the intro. And to think I set this article aside this morning looking forward to reading it after a long day, figuring it was going to be a full fledged in-depth thrash session from Levy or Kazimer... but they gave the assignment to the cub reporter. This bike is at the very top of a very short list. I find the design super sexy, but the paint too loud / dated (just give me some version of black). Now that you mention it, Scott name is a kinda weird brand to have plastered along the entire downtube... might as well be Dave or Steve. But I can be ok with it (or repaint it) if the bike shreds. Love the concept and execution (and weight) of the Hixon, but I run my bars with the... end sweep(?) exactly horizontal, i.e. "rolled back" for most people. Will I be able to adjust to the feel, though it's biomechanicaly incorrect? Potential deal breakers (and trying to discern how much they matter): Fit4 instead of Grip 2 No ISCG05 mounts Should I be OK with "this" PressFit? This (BB92?) does seem to be the best / least worst / most well engineered press fit design. Anybody have experience with it?

Video: Fast-Paced Shredding in Slovakia
It's great to see such epic shredding from the homeland! My grandfather came to USA from Slovakia in 1903 as a 10 year old boy, was never able to return. Earlier this year I was able to ride my bike from Poland into Slovakia, right to my grandfather's house. A mindbending experience to say the least. Would love to go back and explore more trails!

Review: Ibis Hi-Fi Adjustable Handlebar
Re Padloc grips, glad I ignored the skeptics.(me included) and cynics and gave them a try. All I can say is... no more numb hands, and less hand fatigue in general. So far I like the Pivot version over the WTB versions
