Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Replace Your Tires?
@oldmanDan: Nope. Side knobs always tear at the base well before the edges or the center knobs start to look ratty for me. Especially the front tire.

Review: Devinci Troy Carbon 29
@Ricardo-Sa: Parts will still fit fine and will be widely available. If it's a fun bike, it's a fun bike, who cares what the "latest' is? Bikes are to be ridden, they're not investments. /rant against the rant.

Review: Handup Gloves
@mmoon: Current Giro gloves last maybe a few months for me before tearing at the finger seams. Same with some Specialized gloves that were too expensive and didn't have a snot wiper (WTF?). Seems to be an epidemic right now in the glove world.

Bike Check: Brodie's 2002 8-Ball & the Case for Incremental Improvements
You could get them back in the day with a 50a rubber. They were pretty good (for the day) in that config as a rear tire. I did weirdly blow the beads on a lot of them riding Whistler. Since I'm on the topic of 50a rubber.... >>Start Rant>> Front tires seem to be dialed today. Rears still haven't nailed it. I would prefer a straight 50a as a rear tire over the 3C options of today. Decent wet traction without the fast-kill of side knobs. Modern tires in 3C like MaxxTerra have side knobs die too fast as a rear. 60a is just scary in the wet. If you go up to a Dual Compound like the Aggressor, then you got a hard compound. Great summer (rear only) (trail bike only) tire, but no thanks once it's slightly wet. Bring back the straight 50a. /rant

Devinci (Finally) Announces New Spartan 29
The feel of the rear end on a Devinci is second to none. Consistent, progressive and bottomless. Now that their sizing has moved into the modern era, I'd consider one again.

"But I would not buy a 148 bike right now..." Why not? If it's a good bike, it's a good bike. Who really cares what the rear spacing is?

True, mostly. Except that we had 150mm DH hubs back then (at least I did in 2004). That's basically super boost with new end caps on your rad Hadley hubs. We all could have just switched to the DH standard and called it a day, instead of incrementally getting there 15 years later. LOL

Review: SQlab 610 Ergolux Saddle
@stonant: Maybe some copper anti-seize or fiber grip on the rails?

Review: SQlab 610 Ergolux Saddle
Look at the 611, it has the abrasion pads. I'm a parts killer, it's holding up great. Slightly different saddle than the review, but it's been a life saver (ok, actually a taint saver) for me. I actually went and high-fived the guys in the booth at Interbike for saving my junk, I'm now a total fanboi.
