Shimano Announces Affordable Deore M6000 Group and a Wide Range SLX Option
@markar: You're welcome. Your choice to switch to Deore should be much better :)

Shimano Announces Affordable Deore M6000 Group and a Wide Range SLX Option
@winko: Riding a triple with a N/W ring in the middle position is NOT the same. The Q-factor on triple Shimano cranks is a whole cm wider than on 1x Shimano cranks. Also the chain line is a slightly bit different, but mainly the Q-factor is a big difference. So no thanks, I'll rather choose a 1x specific crankset.

Shimano Announces Affordable Deore M6000 Group and a Wide Range SLX Option
@markar: saying that it sucks would be exaggerated, it works okay but the shifts are not as smooth as I'd like them to be. Makes my GX drive train shift like a (properly set up, but still) Altus. The shifts are quite noisy also. But at the same price can't expect anything more than a low-budget cassette for its price. I'd give The performance a 6 out of 10. Can't complain because of the price and no other option; I was still happy SunRace made this one. But the Deore cassette should definitely make a noticeable difference and with this new cassette on the market I wouldn't recommend the SunRace anymore (assuming the new Deore cassette shifts like it does on the old 11-36 Deore cassettes).

I somehow missed the Deore 11-42 cassette part. Stoked to see that! Will replace my SunRace cassette with this one for sure. Thanks for this one Shimano!

Deore line up looks good but the cranks are outdated. No direct mount? No 1x version? No thanks. Wake up Shimano, times are changing. I do hope that the new Deore line would introduce a new 10 speed wide range cassette, since the SunRace one doesn't shift too smooth and all the other options are super expensive. A mid level wide range 10 speed cassette is what's missing on the market currently. Al though I have my doubts if Shimano will make one because the Deore line doesn't have a 1x option.

Asia's Best Riders Hit the Bali Bike Park - Video
@lee-vps-savage: I recommend to spend many days in Canggu, it was by far my favorite place in Bali. Even during my last 3 days in Seminyak I rented a scooter to ride to Canggu and chill there during two of those days. It goes that far that next time I go back I will stay all holiday in Canggu and only leave for day trips every now and then. Nusa Lembongan is also really worth visiting though for a while, especially if you stay at Dini D'Nusa.

Just got back from 3 weeks of Bali and loved it. Rainy season? Yes. But that usually means that it's pouring rain for one hour during the night and often for about 30-60 minutes around lunch time. So at that time you just go to one of the many amazing restaurants for some delicious and super cheap lunch and by the time you finished your food, the sun is shining again and you have amazing summer weather. In the 3 weeks I've only had one day where it rained for a couple of hours (even that was just half the day) and many days without rain. Also the weather was about 30 degrees instead of 40 and the nature is beautiful because it's not dried out like in the dry season.

Coming from Europe, three weeks of Bali will cost about the same as one week to Whistler. Also Bali is amazing to escape the shitty winter here and to spend your winter in the 30 degrees Celsius over there. Even the ocean is 28 degrees so you can go surfing in only your shorts and enjoy how warm the water is, no matter how far you're off the coast. Is it comparing apples to oranges? Totally! But why would you choose when you can have both in your life?

I think Trump blocked the video since it contained foreigners.
