Peaty's Introduces 2 New Products to Its Maintenance Range
I understand the need for an income, but I wish he would put his name/brand on a product that is actually good.

Caminade Shows Off Prototype Titanium Enduro Bike
@Loche: Main pivot is co-centric with BB. The tube bellow is for stiffening of bb area or something, but it's not a pivot.

Hope Questions Lack of Parity in Shimano Micro Spline Licensing
@Euskafreez: Yeah, and HOPE's XD driver also does not follow the spec to the letter which is why certain version of e13 casettes had to use a shim if mounted on a hope hub....

First Ride: Shimano's Back in the Game With New XT and SLX 12-Speed Groups
@Primoz: Dude, there is quite a difference in the shifters and how they feel. Other than that, in the operation not so much not counting the weight. BUT, in my experience the GX stuff tends to not last as long. I've seen GX rear mechs wear out their pivots in a matter of 2000kms becoming so loose they would not shift properly no metter the adjustment (and yes, the hanger was checked with an alignemnt tool, cables and housing replaced etc. and still wouldn't shift correctly across the whole range). We had multiple GX shifters develop "skipping teeth" and shifting to higher gears on their own...

Review: Funn's UpDown Dropper Post Eliminates Unwanted Sagging, But Isn't Perfect
@Almazing: Yeah and in true e13 fashion they managed to ship them out with a fault where many of them were not fully extending back up due to a "bad batch of coil springs". Never change e13.

Review: Dainese's Updated Enduro Knee Guards - Second Time's the Charm
They are not useless. They help to prevent crap like this: https://www.pinkbike.com/u/Ferisko/album/Shin/ I mean, more protection is always better, but these do help in certain situations compared to "knee only" pads.
Added 2 photos to Shin

Video: French Mountain Biker Goes Viral After Almost Crashing into A Group of Students
Not similar at all. That's a trail. Where MTB traffic is expected. The rider in the video is riding on pedestrian sidewalks and stairs in a historical center of a town. Not sure about France, but in most countries in Europe it is prohibited to ride your bike on sidewalks for pedestrians. You either take a dedicated bike route or ride on the road with cars.

Sarah's Friday Randoms - Sea Otter 2019
Maybe HydraPak should rather focus on improving the "basics". Their bladders are literary the worst at making the water taste and smell after plastic after just a short time of being in there. It's worsen by the fact that many brands seem to use them as OEM for their bladders (Evoc, Osprey ...). I can leave water for a week in a Source pack and it would still be better than HydraPak after an hour. Also, how is Peatys sealant still in the business? By all account and evidence it does not work as advertised.

Randoms: Hope's Updated Crankset, Mavic's New Carbon Wheels, Formula's Coil-Sprung Selva - Bike Connection Winter 2019
Too strong even, as there were reports about them becoming so stuck folks had to cut the cranks with an angle grinder to get them off.
