Ridden and Rated: 5 Four-Piston Brakes
@WAKIdesigns: Formula The Ones crush any Shimano brake they've made in the past 10 years, if you wanna go that route and fumble about trying to justify something else. that's fine. Shimanos are DECENT, bleeding into "good" mostly because of the price point. XTs are "just fine" for trail riding and reliable and cheap, i've been and continue to be plenty pleased with mine. the lever feel and power is nothing compared to The Ones or Hopes. to try and say otherwise is ridiculous. I've had Formulas, Shimanos, Maguras, Hopes, SRAMs... its not a comparison, if only partially negated by price if you're on a budget. if you're buying a $3500+ bicycle, you can pay the couple hundred bucks more for the best brake. if you're not, the $190 you pay for a set of Shimanos is perfect.

@WAKIdesigns: every 2 years? freakin' Walmart/Ikea throw-away garbage business model over here. Buy something good, buy it once. use it on the next 3 bikes you build up.

Ask Pinkbike: Upgrading Components, Loose Spokes, and Enduro Race Training
I had Stans beefy rims on a build like 4 or 5 bikes ago (Flow EX?), one of the first of the "custom wheel builds" i undertook. reputable shop built them up. spokes were breaking all the time towards the end of their first season. got to the point where one of the rims was just out of round AND out of true and couldn't be saved. Stans rims were (not sure how they've changed lately) super flexy compared to other brands. like noticeable even by hand. i took that to be the cause. my last few sets have all either been on NS Bikes DH rims, or DT EX471s... DT Comp spokes, brass nipples, Hope hubs... same formula on a few sets now. i've literally never retensioned a single wheel or had a spoke break in what must be going on 6 years now. there's so many choices out there, no need to take a chance on Stans noodles if you're on the heavier side or abuse wheels.

@RRMonster: so not only did you not get the joke, but now you want me to defile myself into sinking so low as to use strava as well like some kinda peasant in Gangs of New York trading ears for a swig out of the All Sorts barrel? have you no decency sir?

Santa Cruz Nomad 4 - Review
@Milko3D: you know that cool sound that the tires make right as somebody is launching off a huge kicker at warp speed? now imagine that a giant joke is riding that bike and you're standing right in the gap of the huge double, and the joke whisks right over your head. =)
