Review: Lewis LHT Ultimate Brakes - Clones or Contenders?
Besides being a copy, and the question regarding labor, we can add the energy source (most likely coal plant) I wouldn't pay +500 for those brakes, and sincerelly I don't see anyone willing to pay that much for chinesium brakes.

Review: SRAM's New Maven Brakes - The Big Brake
"Olive" oil, not absorving water, it will have the same performance for a longer time than DOT, from day 1. It's not acid, and it's easy to work (spilts? No problem!). Requiering new bleed system, is what makes them a PITA! I have Shimano, Hopes, Guide, and Hayes... and now, Mineral Kit form Sram! C'momm!

Review: SRAM's New Maven Brakes - The Big Brake
@mjscyclery: it uses CODE brake pads, and has more more power than GUIDE RCS. Signed: Owner of both systems

First Ride: Focus Vam² SL - Electric Downcountry?
@MidwestMountains: you carry an extra battery on the backpack, or buy an extender (up to 540W/h). So, with a total of up to 1500W/h battery (750W/h x2), you can ride up to: ±150km ± more than 4.000m In a Tour+ mode. That is something I wouldn't be able to do on my BIKE

First Ride: Focus Vam² SL - Electric Downcountry?
For mellow trails, a lighter, short travel bike/ebike, will make your ride much more fun, than a full macho machine

Burning Question: Where Do Wheel Component Manufacturers Stand on Tire Inserts?
When I was riding mainly 26, on the rear I had DH casing (+1200grm) + DH tube (+400grm) + 40psi. It was heavy (very heavy), but it stopped any tire problem (flats/burps/what ever). Then.. as time moved on, and Schwalbe released their PROCORE, I jump on the boat, since it was something well proven on MOTO (Enduro). With Procore (±400grm), I could use EXO+ tires (±1000grm), runing on the tubless system pressures from 13 psi (yes... thirteen), up to 30 psi on the rear! Up front, pressures where between 10psi and 25psi. At lower pressures, the grip (42a & supersoft compounds) it gave to the tires, was mind blowing. I could cross wet and muddy tree roots, at 45°, without major body english. The inner tube+tire, pumped at 70psi, would grab the sidewalls of the tire, as a shark, and never had a tire burp. The confidence in the system grew on me, and on all rides, I was leaving any spare tubes or pumps in the car (almost 500grm). And during this time, the only puncture I had, that wasn't fixed with Stans squirming out of the hole, it was ok, since the inner tube and tire, let me ride back, without any major issue, and having some fun, how the bike handled (cutties were so easy to perform...). So... BRING BACK PROCORE!!!!!!

Review: BYB Tech Telemetry 2.0 - Using Data Acquisition to Improve Suspension Set Up
Ohh man... Buying ultra tuneable suspension, and then let down by the lack of understanding and riding experience... A simple hidraulic tune (Rebound/Compression) makes magic to those who just want to ride

Intra Drive's Combined Motor & Gearbox Fits Bikes Designed For Shimano EP8 [Updated on expanding into the aftermarket]
@finnspin: Once you try, you'll know. I'm not saying it's 4%, 3%, or even 10% efficiency difference. What I've stated since the begining, is that it's a noticeable difference with this: - pushing an ebike beyond the speed limit - you will feel the motor drag - pushing any hub gear bike, with similar tyres and weight - rohloff/sturney/shimano (never tried sram/sachs). It's like the iddler pulley drag. Some swear that they notice the drag, others will say it's BS. Take care... carefull with those step climbs, pedalling standup! Chains have a limit
