SRAM Eagle Electronic Shifting Spotted on Nino Schurter's Scott
@rjmc: agreed, only another 20 or 30 incremental standards updates and incremental price increases to go. Then we will reach the self-driving, $20,000 e-mtb nirvana we all so desperately need.

iXS Flow Evo+ Knee Guards - Review
@jaame: Meh just realize these are Flow "Evo", they have removeable, mine are just normal flow. Saw on their website they have flows with side zippers. If it doesn't affect comfort, seems like that would be really addressing the only arguable "weak point": of the flows.

iXS Flow Evo+ Knee Guards - Review
@jaame: I have IXS Flow's from last year and the pads don't come out, I think that's a new feature. I have the Hans Rey ones, maybe they are slightly different.

Pike RCT3 Boost -160mm and 150mm Springs

$750 CAD
2017 Pike RCT3, Boost 110x15, has about 12 rides on it, was converted from 150mm to 160mm 5 rides ago, and given a basic service at that time. Excellent condition, pics to come. -8" Steerer tube -Comes with both 150mm and 160mm air springs. Currently at 160mm but I can change it back to 150mm if desired. -Comes with Maxle Stealth -Pics shortly, but basically it's a pike with light blue graphics (from 2017 SC Bronson) Fork feels great, but I have ended up with a Fox rear shock and fox dropper so I am going to change for Fox (yes, pure vanity really, I just want it to match haha) Will ship anywhere if you pay for shipping and paypal fees but obviously prefer local sale. Only trade interest is 2016+ Fox 36 Factory RC2 + some cash on my side. Thanks! Kenny

@petehaddock: or forget the string and just squeeze the link together with the Leatherman pliers directly, like a normal human being.

Nukeproof Announces New 'Horizon' Wheelset - Video
Any chance a 35mm internal width version will happen? When I upgrade I'll want to be able to take full advantage of the 2.5 and 2.6 inch wide tires, would be nice to have a little more rim width...

Leatt DBX 3.0 Enduro Helmet - Review
@Timo82: Yup. A typical lap at Galbraith is up 3 little pigs, up the bit of fire road to the top, then smash down. A typical lap at Seymour is around bridle path and up Good Sir martin, then smash down. In both cases there is enough technical climbing happening that doing it with no helmet is just insane, but man even the best full face would cook me. Yes you can survive it but with the Leatt I don't have to. Get to the top, have a drink of water, clip the chinbar on, down we go, rinse repeat. Love it. Both places you can do a bulk of the climbing on what's closer to a fire road type scenario. If that's more your jam and you are just a super gravity oriented hooligan then get a full face. As it is it's a versatile helmet for the typical rider who rides a wide variety of stuff. In the real world a lot of people fall into that category. On pinkbike nobody is interested in trails with gap jumps less than 30 feet. So in internet land it's a useless piece of gear.

Leatt DBX 3.0 Enduro Helmet - Review
It's not a replacement for a full face helmet. It's a replacement for a halfshell. It's a very good halfshell in its own right. For trail riders who historically jist wear halfshells but get rowdy for a certain percentage of their rides and want a little extra protection in the event of a face plant during those portions of their rides it is a super elegant solution. I feel like here in Vancouver many folks will ride a very wide variety of terrain in a single ride it is super handy.

What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
@LavenderGooms: Yeah calling 28.99 is a little wierd. It'd be pretty normal to reference it based on the bearing ID and just call it 29mm. Kinda wanky to call it 28.99. You could give the benefit of the doubt and say they are being precise but to me it reads like they are trying to make it sound fancy. It uses 29mm bearings. And yes even with manual milling processes "half a thou" (0.0005") it completely normal.

What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
@LavenderGooms: Not true actually. For a running fit in a hole about 1" in diameter, the shaft should be 3-7 TENTHS of a thousandth of an inch undersized of the bearing ID. That's a normal tolerance and 28.99mm would be a normal shaft size for a 29mm bearing. A 29mm shaft will not slide into a 29mm ID bearing. See the 5th row down in the column of this link:
