Agreed. Looking at POY from a "what would I hang on my wall" perspective, this was right up there.

SRAM Eagle Electronic Shifting Spotted on Nino Schurter's Scott
Totally agree. Had Di2 on my Patrol since the spring and no plans to go back.

SRAM Eagle Electronic Shifting Spotted on Nino Schurter's Scott
I might've said the same until I went 1x XT Di2 on my latest Transition Patrol. Perfect crisp precision shifting every time. The electronic shifting is SO easy and precise, using a mechanical shifter now feels simply archaic. You mean I have to basically physically pull the cable with my thumb? Madness. Of course, I shattered my thumb a few years ago so I kinda needed to take some strain off it, but having used it for a flawless* season, I would buy it again in an instant even without thumb issues. Oh, I've also charged it twice, since May, and have put over 1000km Whistler on it. * I have snapped two short Di2 connector cables in crashes, but that's my fault for bad routing and are a cheap swap out ($10). So yeah, wireless would be even better.

Failing the $2,000 Bike Challenge - Opinion
@MortifiedPenguin: Nice shopping. Need to add a headset and pedals to that? Also not sure if drivetrain comes with BB or shift cable and/or housing. Brakes have discs included, and adapters? Will also need either tubes, or tubeless valves and sealant, and maybe a roll of gorilla tape? Those little things that always get you when you come to build from scratch. Edit: Okay checked, SLX kit comes with BB and discs. Nice! Those other small bits still needed though.

YT Industries Releases Autobiographical Video, New Branding & 2018 Range
@mtbikeaddict: I guess they meant an extra or additional 11%? Devil's in the details, and is so often missed by marketing it's worrying.

X-Fusion's $199 Manic Dropper Post - Review
@WAKIdesigns: I'm 183cm (6ft) and run a 200mm 9point8 in my Transition Patrol Carbon size Large, almost inserted to the collar and still have room to insert further. The bike has a low top tube and very low seat tube but with lots of straight tube space. I want the saddle slammed for steep gnarly descents and to get out the way cornering, but still need it full-height for my long-but-not-gangly legs. 200mm is game changing for me. Before with a 150mm I would constantly be using a QR on the frame to physically move the post insertion which sucked, and if I didn't would constantly get punched in the chest or stomach by my saddle on steep trails. There is a real need; I know plenty of other people in the Sea2Sky that run 170mm and above. Now that they're more available in fact, most people are going longer.
