Rotor Confirms Full Details of 1x13 Drivetrain
@kleinblake: Too short a space to move a chain over several cogs. I seem to recall the Honda was 7sp initially and then upgraded to 9sp or something like that. Problem with gearboxes is that you have to either standarize (lol, that has worked so well in the bike industry) the mounting points/configuration or change frame and gearbox every time you change either unless you keep with the same manufacturer/model.

Video: Sydney, Australia Has Mountain Biking, But No Mountains
Great comment!!! It's the same here in Darwin... place so flat, but we have decent trails thanks to the hard work and persistence of a few. With the Wet Season here, many trails get destroyed or badly overgrown so they require constant maintenance and rebuild. If it wasn't for the efforts of a few heroes, we'd have no trails.

Bike Check: Joe Nation's Pole Stamina
@ctd07: This. So much of this. The only part where I have seen a sort of functional reason for such rough finish is Thomson seatposts (or any seatpost) as the machining marks help the post to stay in place. And even then, they are not that rough. It also depends on how the piece is made. If the stress risers are at a low stress area, it doesn't matter much. For example, you will only see scallops on Nicolai bikes at the inside of rockers or gussets

Field Test: Giant Trance Advanced 29
@mrtoodles: I just went the other way around. From a 2017 Scout to a Trance 29er... I'm not climbing slower and the Trance helped me clear stuff I was not capable of on the Scout. I'm riding with the saddle tip to my prostate on both on hard climbs anyways. It's all down to personal preference.
