The One Tool That World Cup Mechanics Can't Live Without?
@lightsgetdimmer: "Soft-Jaws" are just a slang term for Axle/Shaft Clamps. Here's Park Tool's https://www.parktool.com/product/axle-and-spindle-vise-inserts-av-5?category=Hub%20%26%20Axle Barnett's https://www.bbinstitute.com/store/tools/bbi-universal-shaft-clamp-set-detail They're called "soft" because the alloy is softer than the steel of the vice and hopefully the material you're clamping to.

SRAM's New DUB Cranks and Bottom Brackets - First Look
@Bustacrimes: I was merely making fun of the ire in the comments that riders now need to buy a new semi-consumable part (BB) with these cranks. There will be 3rd party options soon enough. Funny you bring up Praxis, their products are great, but their 30/28mm M30 stepped axle is just as unique as this one, without the likelihood of as much 3rd party support. Pinkbike commenters just savage any company whose revenue eclipses a threshold, even though the folks working at them are just as committed as the smaller brands.

SRAM's New DUB Cranks and Bottom Brackets - First Look
PInkBike Comment: My press fit BB and 30mm spindle combo are garbage, I'm having to replace a bottom bracket 3 times a season. Why won't someone make a better bottom bracket? SRAM: We downsized the 30mm spindle to make a more durable bottom bracket in your press fit frame Aslo a PinkBike Comment: Why didn't SRAM use a 30mm Spindle so I could re-use the 3 clapped-out bottom brackets I already own?!?

Shimano XT Di2 - Double Header Review
Is SRAM eagle more expensive? To upgrade my bike to eagle, I need a shifter, chain, cassette and rear derailleur. I can get those in X0 Eagle for less than $800. For XT Di2 I need a rear derailleur, shifter, battery, display unit, wires, junction box, charger. That's going to run $850+ If I'm concerned about price I'm buying mechanical XT, GX or NX.

1 Question - What's Keeping the Gearbox Down?
Am I the only one who has ridden a gearbox bike and hated it? Loss of efficiency anf a bit of added weight are not a big deal to me. The biggest downside was inability to downshift under load. Clearing punchy climbs was impossible and involved a lot of swearing and hike-a bike. The solution seemed to be to shift into the lowest gear, then up shift cautiously. If you went to high, you were having to back off the power while trying to maintain balance. at the same time, I've blown up 2 Alfine 8-Speed hubs in my commuter bike from shifting under load. Perhaps an execution on a DH bike with superior suspension design is the answer

Gee's POV - Red Bull Hardline 2016
Apparently the top section before the big step-up goes through some sort of JRR Tolkien haunted forest.
