Berd Release 1400 Gram Enduro Ready String-Spoke Wheelset
Last I checked Onyx had a pretty substantial weight penalty, probably incompatible with the goals of this wheel set. I also recall lots of issues with slipping free hubs on Onyx, have they sorted this out?

Review: The 2023 Yeti SB120 is a Comfortable Trail Cruiser
Yeah I see nothing to recommend this over say a Spur. Spur is lighter, has more aggressive geometry, non-kludgy suspension, costs less... what non-dentist demo does this bike appeal to?

Poll: How Do You Actually Feel About Cable Routing?
There are gradations of terrible here tho: Just through the headset bearing is bad but way better than through the stem and/or headset spacers. I could MAYBE live with headset bearing routing (but would strongly prefer not to.) But if I have to bleed my brake to change stem or stack height that's 100% a dealbreaker. Scott posted one of those sped up "dream bike build" videos for their new Genius and about half of it is the dude faffing with cables. F that.

First Look: Race Face's Era Carbon Cranks Are Guaranteed For Life
@lRaphl: My experience has been the opposite, RF 30mm BBs are just shockingly terrible (like a few months before they get rough), Shimanos are way better. I do have a 30mm crankset on one bike (eeWings) but have been running a Wheels MFG BB with it (after going through multiple RF BBs). That works great. I'm in the PNW so water and mud are my enemies, not fine dust. I guess YMMV and there's no perfect solution!

First Look: Race Face's Era Carbon Cranks Are Guaranteed For Life
Cranks: guaranteed for life. Corresponding 30mm BB bearings: guaranteed to fail in under 1 season. Get a nice metal Shimano crankset, you can use Shimano 24mm BBs that will actually last!

Tech Week 2023: Marin Flat Pedals, SealSkinz Cold Weather Gloves, Kitsbow Merino Apparel, & More
@Superboost: See my post just above yours. They pay attention to their supply chain, at least more so than other retailers. They ain't Patagonia, but they're way better than Walmart.

Tech Week 2023: Marin Flat Pedals, SealSkinz Cold Weather Gloves, Kitsbow Merino Apparel, & More
@enduromanetti: They are far from perfect, but they do at least make an effort to source from non-terrible suppliers, and to consider climate impacts: https://www.costco.com/sustainability-human-rights.html I have some family members who work in sustainability, who think highly of Costco's efforts on both fronts. A big "for a faceless capitalist retail behemoth" caveat should be applied, but they are far from the worst.

@enduromanetti: Actually Costco is known for some of the very best labor practices in the retail industry. They pay employees well and provide way more benefits than other big-box retailers: https://ethicsunwrapped.utexas.edu/case-study/the-costco-model

First Ride: Canyon & Liteville Debut 'KIS' Self-Centering Steering Technoloy - Tech Week 2023
Also my first thought: But can I route my cables through it?

Final Results from Red Bull Rampage 2022
No second run is a massive bummer. Judges expect a second run and score appropriately, planning to adjust scores on the second run. I know the venue is iconic but is there another place or time of year to do this where there isn't ALWAYS a wind issue?
