Brian's Randoms from Sea Otter 2024
@BermSkid72: we've confirmed that i sound uncool and my bike may also look uncool. If you can find a zero-offset chainring power meter for eewings cranks i'll PayPal you $200 just for linking to it.

Brian's Randoms from Sea Otter 2024
@BermSkid72: Clarification needed: I put them on a trail bike, do they look stupid on trail bikes too? Clarification provided: they are indeed SRAM 3-bolt, but they are rotated 180 degrees, which makes a bunch of parts fit incorrectly. A dated thread about it here: https://www.mtbr.com/threads/cane-creek-titanium-eewings.1094016/ Because of this rotation, I like to call it a Cane Creek interface, because it randomly causes parts designed for SRAM 3-bolt to fail. But I might be wrong - I might even have a bike that looks uncool.

Brian's Randoms from Sea Otter 2024
@brianpark: I have eewings on my bike and the real struggle is the cane creek chainring interface. With new Transmission-offset bike frames you need a zero offset chainring for the cranks, and there is only one on the market - the OneUp spider system, which erases any weight savings you may have thought you were getting. And exactly zero compatible power meters (I've made a thorough search). 5dev's big innovation here was a chainring interface to a parts ecosystem that actually exists. Definitely feeling some buyer's remorse right now.

Digit Announces New Ring Trail Bike
@nnowak: I agree with everything you wrote, and also note that you're quoting prices at this weight that are in the ballpark. The fact that you're comparing it to the element, which Rocky lists as an XC bike not a trail bike - comparing an aluminum trail bike to a modern carbon XC bike - is a testament to how remarkable this achievement is for a small boutique maker.

Digit Announces New Ring Trail Bike
We are all upset about the $9800 price, right? Can we pause and ingest the fact that this is a 26-pound trail bike with an aluminum frame? Has anyone here actually tried to build a 29er trail bike that weighs 26 pounds? Here is a $12,000 trail bike made of carbon that can only dream of weighing 26 pounds: https://basaltbikes.com/products/pivot-trail-429-team-xx1-axs I have a mid-travel Ibis Ripley made of carbon that can't compete with this bike on weight and it would cost me $5000 to try (I'm not going to try). Looks like a remarkable achievement and I hope I see one on the trail someday.

Video: Stylish Dirt Jump Sends for 'Zesty in Zealand'
Holding an enduro bike in front of a park sign that says "no trail bikes" at 1:19 - underappreciated joke.

Review: Yoshimura's New Chilao SS Flat Pedals
@superfrodaddy: I can't believe you've been running the softest magnesium pedals on earth for ten years without bashing pins out of them. I only use those for gravel.

Pinkbike Poll: What's the Duration of Your Average Weekend Ride?
It was very clever to ask "average" ride rather than "biggest" ride. I routinely do 6 hour rides, just not enough per season to make them my average. This poll normalizes e-bike batteries as long enough to last for an "average" ride, and obscures that fact those big, 6+ hour epics are for many of us treasured moments we aspire to

Fox Racing Announces New Union Boa Flat Shoe
@Symmech: Wow! After years of no competition for 5.10 suddenly we have a bunch of it. Giro with grippy soles, Specialized with grippy soles, maybe we'll get BOA on top and waterproof flats in the future too! Forget bike wars, bring on the shoe wars.

Has anyone ridden these soles who can provide a reality check on 5.10 versus "best in class grip"?
