EWS to Start Working With the UCI
So from now on every innovation that substantially changes the look or workings of a bike (like disc brakes) will be first forbidden, then tried, and after changing policy 3 times, finally accepted 15 years after market introduction? The bike industry will love this... As will the fans...

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
@ismasan: pressure difference from the atmosphere. So 1 bar higher pressure than outside the tire. But yes, normal air pressure is 1 bar, so the total pressure inside the tire equals 2 bar, but the pressure gauge will read 1 bar.

XTR 9100 is Here - How Did it Remain So Secret?
@Schlafmutzli: I agree the comparison is strange, but to be fair, this is Shimano's cheapest 12sp group (and the only one). So if one wants the cheapest working 12sp group, these are the options available at the moment (when it releases of course). The question becomes if the huge price difference is justified with performance or durability (but the same question can be asked about SRAM's hugely expensive top-tier groups).

First Look: Shimano's New XTR is More Than Just 12-Speed
@theminsta: they may be made by idiots, but the star ratchet hubs are probably the most reliable and maintenance easy hubs available.

Winning Bike Check: Richie Rude's Yeti SB5.5 - EWS Olargues, France 2018
To clarify: I thought he meant using a longer steerer tube and adding a spacer on top instead of increasing travel.

Bike Check: Anne Terpstra's Ghost Lector - Albstadt World Cup XC
I can't imagine that the weight savings outweigh the loss in usability. I have the same (old) reverb remote on one of my bikes and I hate it just as much (maybe even more) than the lack of reliability...

Development Story: Cannondale's Wild New Single-Sided, Single-Crown XC Fork
@mikelevy: I agree, although a Cannondale might have a better balance with the rear suspension (because it was tuned as a whole).

Winning Bike Check: Richie Rude's Yeti SB5.5 - EWS Olargues, France 2018
@ThomDawson: ok that would have the same effect as long as the travel isn't used. Using the travel would partially undo the slackening.

@ThomDawson: that wouldn't alter the distance between wheels and frame and therefore would not make the bike slacker.

Formula Announces New Cura 4 Brakes
Both SRAM and Shimano use different sizes for the leading and trailing pistons. This is done to get an even pressure distribution. What are the reasons behind using equal size pistons here ?
