Review: SRAM's New Maven Brakes - The Big Brake
@apoc99: Every motor vehicle sold in the EU will use DOT for the foreseeable future. There are no plans to change that.

Review: SRAM's New Maven Brakes - The Big Brake
@f00bar: You could, but Sram doesn’t. And neither does any large supplier of brakes, so it’s a bit of a moot point.

Review: SRAM's New Maven Brakes - The Big Brake
This is just a marketing move. For most practical purposes on a bicycle, the type of brake fluid doesn’t matter at all. But there are plenty of people who whine about „toxic“ DOT while adoring mineral oil (also „toxic“, just in slightly different ways). Switching to hydraulic oil as a medium might grab some additional sales.

Evil Bikes Announces Company Layoffs
@tom666: For MTB specifically, there is also the issue that the sport is maturing and technological progress is slowing down. Means fewer reasons to replace older bikes. The market saturation caused by the Covid boom will take quite a while to dissipate.

First Ride: Privateer 161 Gen 2 - The Beast Is Back
@ChristianToole: And not necessarily a good thing, unless you’re regularly hitting monstrous compressions or missing big jumps. And even then, adding volume spacers is easy. Lowering progression is almost impossible.

David McMillan Shares Injury Update After Crash While Testing Hardline Tasmania Course
@nateb: According to some doctors, lots of tooth damage happens when they snap together in a crash. Mouthguards are probably a good idea for MTB in general. Might even provide some minor protection when wearing a half shell.

Review: Renthal's New Revo-F Flat Pedals
Not convinced. Please correct me if i'm wrong but these seem to be strictly inferior to Chromag Scarabs. Worse in terms price, size, color choice and pins. Possibly comparable in longevity and grip but the former is unproven.

Review: Renthal's New Revo-F Flat Pedals
@hardtailpunter: Good quality? Didn't they make those heavyweight stems that didn't properly fasten down? How do you mess up the one thing a stem has to do and what all stems have succeeded at for decades?

Revel Releases Tirade Titanium Hardtail
@fentoncrackshell: It’s even worse for the DH Super Soft versions. Those are often sold out or priced outrageously even in Conti‘s home country.

True. I’d say similar things about the Banshee Titan.
