First Look: The 2023 Bold Unplugged Mixes Aggression With Integration
@pmhobson: The car manufacturer I'm referencing is Tesla. They run everything via bluetooth and LTE connection (for remote connection when out of range) to the phone app, which serves as your key as well. Auto lock/unlock, etc. is all bluetooth, as these features disappear if you turn off bluetooth from your phone.

First Look: The 2023 Bold Unplugged Mixes Aggression With Integration
@notthatfast: to be fair, there seems to be varying degree of bluetooth implementation quality. Case in point, my car is completely controlled (no physical key) via a bluetooth key to my phone app. It works flawlessly. I've owned this brand of vehicle (2 different vehicles) for 5 years and I have never once had the bluetooth key/app fail - auto lock/unlock, app-based control of climate control system, etc. Similarly, devices such as Apple Airpods connect instantly and reliably across years of use. My experience with AXS has been the same - it just works.

Agreed. There are so many suspension designs that work incredibly well and scarcely need a LSC climb switch, much less a more complicated solution. I immediately lost interest when I see somewhat proprietary shock stuff - not to mention that Twin-lock has never landed with reviewers. Just give it up already.

@Brave1i1toaster: Agreed. Been running AXS for a couple of seasons now and it's been flawless. The micro indexing from the app actually saved a bike park day after I slightly bent the hanger on the first run. I was able to index my low gears to compensate and bike worked well for the rest of the day.

4 Key Stats from Enduro Racers in the Pinkbike State of the Sport Survey
Would be cool to come up with some sort of signage coding along the trailside, similar to the instructions/maps given to rally car drivers, that would indicate the upcoming obstacle, terrain or feature. That way it is equal parts "blind" and would present a safer format.

Video: Our Favourite Daily Driver Bikes Of 2022
@JazyFyzle: The point is that high pivot bikes which have an idler typically don't produce much (if any!) pedal kickback. Sure, a high pivot design without an idler would produce an enormous amount of pedal kickback, but the Norco Range does not fall into this category. Absent pedal kickback, the o-chain should be completely redundant regardless of an infinite engagement hub.

Agreed - the high pivot design seems as if it would largely make the O-chain redundant, no? A hallmark of high-pivot bikes is the noticeable lack of pedal kickback - I'm reasonably convinced that this facet has more to do with the overall speed of those designs than the rearward axle path.

Review: Shimano BR-MT420 4-Piston Brakes
@jesse-effing-edwards: Totally - I want to be clear, I was in agreement about Sram brakes being quality and capable, not coming to the defense of shimano's wandering bite point :)

Review: Shimano BR-MT420 4-Piston Brakes
Just as curious: AXS 12 speed has been out for a long time at this stage - where the heck is Shimano's version?

Review: Shimano BR-MT420 4-Piston Brakes
Agreed. As is always the case, when you are shipping hundreds of thousands of units there are bound to be some lemons out there. By and large, Sram brakes work very well. My Code RSCs have been perfect across 3 seasons - I recently upgraded because I did want something with a bit more power, but as far as their actual function: flawless.
