Daysaver Announces New 'Incredible' Multi-Tool
Over a thousand words pimping their tool but can't be bothered to spare a few additional characters on price or availability.

Bike Check & Shop Tour: Lal Bikes' Nicolai Nucleon 16 Supre Test Sled
@cedric-eveleigh: "a few more" ?? C'mon, just tell us the number. Its got to be in excess of 140 links. I can count ~130 links visible in one of the photos, and that's not counting the links I can't see on the cassette. Since a typical 12sp 1X drivetrain uses 112 links, I'm guessing your definition of "few" is ~ 30?

Group Test: 14 of the Latest & Greatest Flat Pedals Reviewed
@rrolly: I think you've got an M8040 and an M8140. The M8141 has yet to ship. The numbering sequence is a little odd, since the difference in look/design is very minimal between the 8040 and 8140, but the 8141 is dramatically different from prior models despite its small +1 increment in model #. Hopefully your LBS will eventually get you a set of M8141 and they will last.

Group Test: 14 of the Latest & Greatest Flat Pedals Reviewed
@BARAVNZLA: Exactly! That's why the M8040 generation were such a huge disappointment. Prior pedals from Shimano had been indestructible. I rode MX80 pedals for a while; good pedals, but I prefer a larger platform. So my fingers are crossed the M8141 and M829 will have the larger & thinner platform but with the reliability of the MX80. If they eventually materialize . . .

@BikesBoatsNJeeps: those M8040 were clearly a poor axle design. I had the axle tip break off after less than 100 hours of bikepacking. Lots of similar reports online. Disappointing in comparison to the never-die reliability of virtually every SPD pedal they've ever made.

Notably absent: Shimano, who announced the PD-M8141 and PD-M829 pedals in summer of 2021 and yet still have not managed to ship a single pair out to reviewers, let alone production shipments to retailers. After nearly 2 years, WTF is the problem?

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Which Saddles Pinkbike's Editors Put on Their Own Bikes
Hey Dario, not to be a hater, but is this a typo or BS ?? "Since last June, I have spent thousands of hours perched atop this little guy" Seems pretty unlikely. Assuming the bare minimum number to qualify for "thousands" (2000) that would require an average of >6 hours a day, every day, for 11 months straight. If it is true, you might want to read up on the concept of overtraining.

Shimano Consolidates Entry- to Mid-Level Groupsets With New CUES Drivetrains
@Tasso75: hey Tasso75, if you "set" you shifting at the center of the cassette, then the worst error/offset will be only .05 x 4 = 0.2mm, at either lowest or highest gear.
