Video: Remi Gauvin Compares if Different Brake Pads Can Make You Faster
This isn’t an engineering exercise, it’s a rider preference exercise. They’ll both slow you down, this kind of back to back testing is about feeling confident in setup choices. He’s been running metallics forever, he’s used to them, not surprised they were faster for him. A rider that’s been on organics for years would likely have the opposite experience. But, this dispels any doubts about whether he’d do better with different pads.

First Ride: Cannondale's All-New Scalpel SE
Appears even the $9000 version only gets you to an XT cassette, not XTR.

First Ride: Privateer 161 - An Affordable-ish Race Ready Machine
At this rate geometry of available bikes will have surpassed the Grim Donut by the time the post a review. This bike is only 3 degrees off the GD in seat tube angle...

Video: Can Luca Shaw Learn the Dark Arts of Wheel Building on Zoom?
Agreed, not that hard and somehow therapeutic. I always lace mine in a different order than the vid though, do all my inside spokes on both sides, then twist the hub and do all the crossed spokes. Guess either way works!

@powderturns: This is a sound point, though I don’t know where Mavic will be tomorrow.

Review: Giro's New Manifest Helmet
I thought maybe it was just this color, but if you look at their site literally all the color combos are hideous. Not a single one I'd put on my head.

Tech Briefing: Wheels, Enduro Bikes, Frame Protection & More - May 2020
Agreed, someone mentioned them to me and prefaced it with "it's a terrible name, but check out Dyedbro..." And all their designs have DYEDBRO in big letters the center of the top tube. Hard pass.

Kenda Releases New Pinner Tire Developed with Aaron Gwin
Honestly looks more like a cross between a Dissector and a Mary to me.

The 2020 Last Tarvo Claims to be the Lightest Enduro Frame Ever
Having just gone from a very light frame to a heavier but much burlier one, I agree: I’ll take an extra 1-2lbs of frame weight for a better and more durable ride. As one of the founders of Cervelo said, “we don’t want to make the bike that’s best to lift over your head, we want to make the bike that’s best to ride”

Spotted: Is This a New Specialized Status?
@zyoungson: Sure but not like Spesh would be trying to pretend Status wasn’t theirs. More a branding effort; e.g. Toyota created Scion to appeal to value-conscious younger folks, also trying to make it seem cool. The fact that they’ve given them out to all these Insty influencers and BMXers would be consistent with this goal.
