Race Face Announces New Turbine R Dropper Post
It's too bad they couldn't make the 9.8 tech work for them.

Cane Creek's Titanium Enduro Crankset - First Look
@vinay: many of the bike frame plans, carbon and metal, around Taiwan actually have very good working conditions, pay a good living salary, and actually give lot of consideration to health and safety. I know a number of folks to both travel to plants and work in them. They are not marginalized sweat shop labourers like you might think.

@mollow: I am definitely price sensitive about some components. Drive terrain for example, you'll find me on XT before eagle or something like that. For brakes, I don't mind spending the cash. I think the return is worth it. Meanwhile it does seem like many people are happy with Magura, and I can knock you for that :)

@Lagr1980: or buy hopes and forget about it and crash away lol. E4 front x2 rear is also a thing. Magura's look to be very nice too. Always have been really. I have not owned a set since the old Gustavs though.

@WAKIdesigns: unless you are a giant, or ride only DH, e4's will work fine. I rode them in Newfoundland, which is all wet rock and root, and would not pick another break over them.

@WAKIdesigns: no need to hint, lol. 3-4 presses and they are either at the bar or pumped right out. Zero consistency. I just got rid of my last set of Shimano brakes for Hope evo x2's. Also have some tech e4's. Simply put, they all just work.

@WAKIdesigns: if I'm not mistaken, you previously called Hope brakes "wooden/metallic" feeling in your own parking lot test of several pair. You dumped on them. Why the change of heart?

Starling Murmur - Review
@jclnv: To me that seperats the wheat from the chaff. No offense to the builder, but in my line of work, I have to double check everything. If I didn't, I wouldn't be employed for long.

Starling Murmur - Review
@mhoshal: it's true. A Kona Process will brake jack as bad as an Orange, or a Starling, if "single pivot" is your only qualification for saying a bike will have brake jack. And my 111 definitely does. But in real-world riding it hardly presents itself. The back it skips across breaking bumps a little more than other bikes I have owned but it's kinda fun.
