Trickstuff Direttissima Brakes - Review
@haroman666: Haha - thats why I fitted the Hopes in the first place, I couldnt stand how my Saint's bite point would be all over the place - I have warped a few non-hope discs though on uplift DH runs as I am a complete hack on the brakes (Brakes are so much more important to slow people like me than the fast guys who dont drag the crap out of them)

Being one piece doesnt seem to hold performance back - may help with servicing in the long run and as the price is so high you will want to keep them working for a long time!

Its a nice to hear that something that is more expensive than the competition actually works better - There are too many products that retail for big numbers because of brand image. If I could afford some I would buy some, I have a thing for powerfull brakes nowdays as I am fatter and slower and tend to be heavy on them - for now my Hope's will have to do, which are brilliant to be fair.

Inside Orange Bikes
You are essentially asking Orange to close the door on their heritage, something which gives the bikes a distinctive look which is immediately noticable as an Orange bike - What other bike has a look so easily identifiable? The design / look follows through the range and they have obviously got to the stage where they can produce a strong, light, stiff frame using that style of production, are they 100% as refined as they could be with other methods of production, possibly not - But does that really matter? Would 5% lighter or stronger really make enough of a difference to can their whole niche? I for one would be mortified if orange went to boring hydroformed tubes and I think a lot of their customer base would be too.

They say opinions are like bumholes...... I think they have reached the point where the distinctive look is the hallmark of orange - Love it or hate it they ride well and will hopefully continue to be a strong business - Who is left commercially producing bikes now in their own country since Intense have packed it in? - Nicolai, anyone else?

Steele Industries PO30 Pedal Release
@adamxrt: well aware of IGUS and other polymer bushings, no bush plays well with debris which will just get ground into a paste during use. The bushings themselves work well but you have to shield them from crap.

@Paul7189: Probably not that far off cost price in reality, but a good way to pay for their initial order. If they could keep the price to around £45.00 they become serious Superstar competition (Which would be nice as I wouldnt buy a thing from them, but they are one of the cheapest around)
