Endura Planted Over 1.3 Million Trees in 2020, Aiming to Become Carbon Negative by 2024
@rirkby: I still have mine :D My issue with Endura is a bit different. Their sizing seems to be a bit, how to put it, random. Sometimes M is too large. Sometimes L is too small...

First Look: Crankbrothers Debuts Mountain Bike Shoe Line
@sitkadog: Honestly, for a while now I've been wondering why this isn't a thing with shoe sizing. Listing both size (length) and width of the shoe in the size chart. Also, I don't believe there is a large market for wide shoes. We are just a noisy minority :D

First Look: Crankbrothers Debuts Mountain Bike Shoe Line
@NorCalNomad: Sure. And I would be happy to pony up a lot more cash for one of the more fancy models... if only they weren't designed for narrow feet.

First Look: Crankbrothers Debuts Mountain Bike Shoe Line
@chachmonkey: Yeah, the old style Freeriders are still wide-ish. Wider than most for sure. The sizing seems to run a bit small though. Had to size one full number up (so two sizes with their fraction sizes). The problem with the OG Freeriders is they are a crappy shoe as far as sports shoes goes. Paper midsole (!!!). They can soak up gallons of water and then take ages to dry. There is no system to restrain the excess laces from flying around and getting into your chainring so you have to tuck them somehow which can get uncomfortable. Great sole and all, but too many downsides and doesn't really last. And the cherry on top is the lack availability lately.

Pole Bicycles' CEO Resigns, Company Founder Leo Kokkonen to Take Leading Role
"Handle and close each currently open warranty case within the next ten weeks." Is that supposed to be good? So what was the queue until now? 10 months?

BikeYoke Updates & Extends the Revive Dropper Post
@vitality: Kind of agree. Sold my Revive with my previous bike. New bike came with Fox Transfer Factory. A bit too early to judge its reliability, but it is no where near as smooth as the Revive. The seat clamp bolts on the 2020 Transfer are just retard engineering (there was a good reason why they changed it for 2021). Not to mention that is looks like opening up and servicing the Transfer will be a lot more problematic compared to to the simple, fast and cheap service of Revive.

First Look: DT Swiss' New 1501 & 1700 Spline Wheelsets
@DaneL: I bought my EX 1501 for around 777 euro, including 20% tax. It was 3 seasons ago though. I suppose DT stuff is more expensive in North America, judging by the comments. //edit: plus the old 1501's had another advantage in being offered in multiple rim widths as well as multiple axle standards for those who still roll non-boost. You could get EX 1501 with 25mm ID EX471 rim or 30mm ID EX511 rim. And I think a 35mm version was also available. That seems to be a thing of the past now as well.

First Ride: RockShox's New Zeb Fork
@cedrico: some German magazine did tests with actual measurements. Lyrik came out single digit % stiffer than 36 in fore/aft direction and 20 something % stiffer torsionally. Can't find it right now. If I come across it I'll be happy to reference it.
