What Are Your Riding Resolutions for 2018?
Soft goals, after 105 and 87 rides in the past two seasons, I'm gunning for 150 in the next one with 150k vertical meters of climbing. And a 25k climbing month, maybe even a 30k if all goes well. And maybe get a new ride in the summer. But in general, ride more.

Devinci Spartan Carbon - Review
@foort: you mean that the rocker is only two unconnected plate? I don't think it's much of a problem, the seatstays are connected right above the tyre, that should prevent any rotation of one plate in regards to the other. Maybe the pivot axle is even keyed to add stiffness. Regardless, there isn't much freedom of movement that would put additional stress on the shock compared to other designs.

2017 Pinkbike Awards - Component of the Year Nominees
@WAKIdesigns: Too bad this post is burried in a long thread under an old story, since you just blew ANY thread of credibility you had from before. Can't believe i used to think you might know what you're talking about. Luckily you quickly turned into a vile troll. This is a whole new level though. I hope as many people as possible see this and start downvoting any of your comments, good or bad. If it was up to me this kind of post would be a very good reason to start thinking about a sitewide ban.

@WAKIdesigns: well i prefer to be a touch slower and use the bike the way it was meant and the way a human is most efficient in a position, that's MUCH more ergonomic than pushing. But hey, look at me, i'm a weirdo, when i have to, i almost always throw the bike on my shoulders, even on fire roads. Since carrying it is much easier than pushing it.

@WAKIdesigns: But they do make a 7-speed DH specific group. Because, you know, sometimes it actually is usefull to have more than one gear even on a DH bike, but there is still no point in having 12 of them... But hey, you like walking up the hills, i wonder why you don't go SS on your enduro, trail, XC or whatever bike you ride daily. After all, all you need is to get tougher and you'll be pedalling up the steeps with a single speed in no time.

@WAKIdesigns: you said it yourself above, you're a freak. Now stop pushing your freakish opinion down other people's throats. And Eagle is not niche, 1x10 IS. Because the average rider can't use it. I'm in a good shape and i'm on the edge of 1x11 being useable with a 32T in front (on Sram's 42-10 cassette). But i'm too stubborn to put the 30T back on the bike (i've been cursing my decision to go with a 32T many times). Even 1x11 is niche for a lot of riders, because it doesn't have enough range. Eagle does. Therefore Eagle is mainstream. I'll be going with Eagle and a 32T so i have a pure, but rarely used granny gear in the form of 32-50 ratio. The majority of stuff will be handled by the smallest 11 cogs. That will also improve the life expectancy of the cassette. Win-win. EDIT: and NO WAY IN HELL am i going into the gym. I'd rather watch youtube for those three hours or ride my bike, depending on the season. I am going to an exercise class, where we do stuff with only the body weight, but sadly it's only an hour per week and only over the winter. It helps immensely, but no way in hell do we train specifically to be strong enough to use stupiddly hard gear ratios. And before you start shouting your 'get tougher routine', it's not the legs that give up on me on steeps, it's my lungs and heart. And this is not something that gets fixed by going to the gym. This gets fixed with cardio training.

@WAKIdesigns: Whenever you are in Slovenia, tell me. I'll show you the climbs which would be easy peasy with an eagle and are a pain in the ass (barely pedalable, in some cases you do have to walk) with 32-42. 30-42 would of course be easier, but then i would be spinning out on the flats. BTW, walking is just a horrible thing to do and i only want to do it on really steep, technical stuff, where there's no way to ride up. Walking on a fire road is just dumb.
