Review: 1,000 Miles on SRAM's New Eagle Transmission
@ryanandrewrogers: i'd argue one of the best advantages of a gearbox is not being limited to crankshaft concentric designs. Gearbox could be designed in conjunction with suspension, yet most current gearboxes simply replicate the position of a regular chainring

DH Bike Review: Canfield's Jedi Masters Rough Terrain
@8a71b4: Formulas are rebuildable and generally more reliable than shimano from my experience, but they are not problem free. I rebuilt my master cylinder lever with a new mc piston and reservoir bladder, only to discover the mc body is twisted and off by about .05mm on each side of the lever bolt. It leaks inconsistently across the ports and has a slightly variable bite and a long throw as a result. My fix was to over fill, then slowly retract the caliper while burping at the lever. They aren't bulletproof. Further, this would have been much better to fix by buying an entirely new lever body anyways. Also, i have had a phenolic piston crack and 3 speed lock lines develop a leak. I might move to Hope. I liked the new tech 4s on a buddy's i set up for him

Tech Tuesday: How & Why to Upgrade Your Pads and Rotors
Shimano rotors on centerlock onyx hubs, no problems. Brand new magura rotors on the same hubs= knocking noises. No noticeable signs of wear on the hub interface at all.

Maxxis Updates Forekaster Tire for Downcountry - Eurobike 2022
@Apfelsauce: The 2.6 Forekaster also had one of the least reliable casings. Both mine had wobbles after two days of practice and racing a relatively flat xc course covered in rocks and cactus needles. I still use one of them because I don't want to waste it, but the casing is separating at the join point after 1700 total miles. Though the side knobs are nearly ripping off anyways.

Review: Silt AM 29 Alloy Wheels
Although a better explanation for feel may be found in the inherent strain related dampening. No dampening can occur for any strain already observed, and the natural frequency is higher. Check this out:

Review: Silt AM 29 Alloy Wheels
A quarter/ half turn is 3 or 6 kgf at most on the typical aluminum rim (Stan's Arch) with DT Competitions, even less on plain gauge. Basically, most people can at best feel a 6-7 percent difference. This is a ~4% difference in feel if the relation were one to one. The difference, if there were one with a direct relation to spoke tension, is a ghost feeling, a placebo effect and a mind game at worst.

Not A Review: Getting Through Lockdown on a Jitsie Varial 24" Trials Bike
@gtill9000: Unless the sprocket is larger than the cog, the freewheel at the BB is slower. However, not being attached directly to the hub, which is under constant and direct strain from all motion, means engagement is more reliable.
