Video: Friday Fails #62
THIS is how I like my fails! Funny and mostly innocuous. The last few of these have had the feel of snuff films.

Review: Industry Nine's New Hydra Hubs Have 690 Points of Engagement
@bman33: I'll save you the trouble, they can't be upgraded. I have the same hubs, apparently they can't reliably get the drive ring out without damaging the hub shell. Oh well, not like the Torches are bad, I'll stick with 'em till I need new hubs.

Video: SRAM's Wireless Eagle AXS Drivetrain Explained
So now the narrative is “Shimano can’t do drivetrains, look to Eagle for reliability”? I find this hilarious given the history, but maybe the rough roll-out of XTR will leave a mark. Like people who still insist SRAM brakes are awful because Avid Juicys suck. Have you tried current Codes? Best I’ve ridden.

First Ride: WTB’s 2019 Tires & Rims
I love WTB tread patterns, but MY GOD these things are heavy. Per their website the Vigilante 29x2.5 in the LIGHT casing is over 1100g.

Review: Orbea Rallon M-LTD
Seems like he actually says the rear end both bottoms out and feels unexpectedly harsh, the front sometimes randomly loses traction, tech climbing is mediocre, engineering is poor with badly executed internal cable routing and the offset shock making contact with rider’s knee. BUT CUSTOM PAINT looks so cool!

First Look: Shimano's New XTR is More Than Just 12-Speed
Agreed; I was all set to covet this but the need for a new hub, and fact that freehubs won't be available for non-DT Swiss users is a deal breaker. Anyone who loves Shimano but pines for more gear range, try a Garbaruk wide-range cassette. Very light, cheaper than SRAM, more linear gear jumps than Shimano's 11-46, and fits a Shimano freehub to boot. I'm running 11-48 with standard XT and it's excellent.

First Look: Newmen Components' New Wheels Have Spokes Made of String
Cool ideas here, and nary a new "standard" in sight! I'd test some vectran spoke wheels for sure.

Quarq's TyreWiz Lets You Check Your Tire Pressure With Your Phone - Sea Otter 2018
Here's the only defense I can think of: I've totaled 2 rims by initiating a slow leak that leads to loss of pressure and eventual rim-rock contact over the course of a long descent. If my phone could be set to go off like an alarm when pressure drops below say 20PSI, it might help. But make these things $40 the pair, then we'll talk.
