We Are One Composites Drops Teaser Info About Made-in-Canada Carbon Frame
@derekr: you can always add spacers to your pedal/crank interface, it's a lot harder to shrink things down. I'd say it's safe to say that most people will not benefit from a wider q-factor. I'm 6'3" but still prefer a narrow crankset. I ride mountain bikes, road bikes and a fat bike with a 100mm bb, and my knees are definitely happiest on the road bike.

Legendary Road Cycling Brand Wilier Launches New Urta SLR Cross Country Bike
I was thinking it looked like the previous generation of the Cannondale Scalpel.

Revel Expands US-Made Recyclable Wheel Range With the RW27 - Pond Beaver 2021
Yeah, pretty much. Carbon laid in thermoplastic rather than the traditional epoxy.

[April Fools] Cane Creek Announces eeWings DIY Titanium Crankset
Love the not-so-subtle shade thrown at all the people complaining about not being able to service their own shocks.

Titanum's New 3D Printed Pedals Weigh 50 Grams Each
That's my largest concern with this system as well. When the cleats wear out, you need to replace the pedal as well. Doesn't seem too smart to me.

Staff Rides: The N+1 Bikes of Pinkbike Editors
I wondered this for a while, but finally realized that a lot of the people raving about gravel bikes have terrain to suit it. I don't have gravel roads or easy single track to explore near me. I can either drive 20-40 minutes to trailheads for mountain biking or ride out my door on a road bike. A gravel bike wouldn't change my riding at all (after learning that a full on race road bike doesn't suit my awful road conditions) but what works for me and my surroundings may be different for others. I filled my in between with a fat/dad bike. I get to ride almost year round and it allows me to have fun on easier trails while towing my munchkin. Fat bikes were all the rage for a bit too and a lot of people realized they didn't suit their riding, but for many they're a game changer. In summary: to each their own. If it's got wheel(s) and you pedal it, you win.

Review: 2021 Cube TWO15 HPC SLT - DH Bike Week
@dan-roberts: I'm guessing for the same reason they went with plastic headset cups: to save a few dollars.

Review: 2021 Cube TWO15 HPC SLT - DH Bike Week
@Noeserd: as the aftermarket option, yes, but Magura does a lot of mixing and matching at the oem level to reach a certain price point. I think I've even seen their top tier lever with full adjustment paired with their entry level two piece caliper.

Review: 2021 Cube TWO15 HPC SLT - DH Bike Week
In my opinion, yes. I run Maguras on all my bikes and there is a significant improvement in flex and feeling when running the one finger aluminum levers. I kinda like the flex on my tamer bike as I find it useful in moderation, but I could see it being a problem with huge brake forces on a DH bike.
