Field Test Review: 2022 Trek Top Fuel - Same Name, Different Bike
@max252: Obviously your comment is at least slightly sarcastic. But at this time, when wear parts like cassettes, chainrings, and chains are scarce and/or expensive - I'm cleaning off the drivetrains to try to extract a little more life from them. I don't care what the rest of the bike looks like and have never actually "washed" a bike, but I'm definitely brushing off the wear parts so I don't have to buy new ones.

Opinion: How Many Batteries Does a Mountain Bike Really Need?
I'm keeping my two batteries - one for the wireless speedometer head unit and one for the sending unit on the fork.

Story Time: Everything I Know About Bikes is Wrong
I swing the other way. I would rather be "underbiked" and use/build skills to get down something that I could probably use more bike for. I want the ride up to not be greatly hindered by too much weight or suspension movement. For the ride down I'll make what I have work for me.

First Look: The 2022 Giant Anthem Pro 29 Joins the Flex-Stay Club
I learned to love multi-link suspensions, DW Link in particular, from my early 26'ers. When I moved up to 27.5 and 29, I couldn't afford Pivot or Ibis. So I've been on various Giants with Maestro, the poor man's DW Link, since then. My 2019 Anthem's suspension works perfectly for me. Dumbing down the suspension to save a few grams isn't a tradeoff that works for me.

First Look: Lal Bikes' Supre Drivetrain Splits The Derailleur In Half Before It Happens On the Trail
I always admire any real innovation and this is definitely innovative. However, as a whole system (frame, idlers, derailleur, etc.), it's complicated. A lighter-weight gearbox still seems like the best answer, though I know that's always been 5 years away and still is.

First Look: RĂ¥ Bikes' .12 Full Suspension Enduro Bike
Yeah, my first thought was "Ooooh, Stainless!" I like steel bikes, but it's wet where I ride so I'm not interested in something that will rust. But T45 doesn't seem to be truly stainless, though I do see that's offered with a "corrosion-resistant treatment."

Slack Randoms: The Grim Donut II Survives its First Huck to Flat, Bike Dancing & More
I've had exactly one Red Bull in my life and I hated it, but I'm sure glad enough people buy that swill to fund stuff like this. Absolutely stunning and totally deserving to be on this bike site.

Reserve's New Fillmore Valve Aims to Make Tubeless Easier
Having changed 4 tubeless tires last weekend and fiddling (not struggling) with the presta cores, I would be all in for these at about $25 per bike. For $50 per bike, I'll fiddle with presta and use my compressor. It's always worked, but the convenience of these is attractive. Just not $50 attractive.
