First Look: OneUp Components DH Block
Iffy, Maybe the shifting or keeping the body from getting marred DT's have Al? I have not tried it yet....but there is something inherently fun about machining it down. ~UM

@ jaame, You called it! I was wondering what the "new" thing was going to be after the, wheels, headsets, BB etc....Although your recommendation is so practical and so on point....I do remember folks using modified cassettes on CK single speed hubs with this very thing in mind. I'd patent this and then market it directly to SRAM! But honestly: A dt swiss ss 135mm with a 142mm axle conversion and a halfway decent machinist (http://waltworks.blogspot.com/2009/10/this-one-goes-to-11.html) should get you there. ~UM

Shimano XTR Trail Wheels - Review
As a mechaninc.....When I needed something- I'd think to myself should I EP this and wait a week and fill out this paperwork or go through Jenson: have it here in two days for $10.00 cheaper because some bike company order too many cranks. Or should: I spend my evening doing silly trainings on Shimano or 3.5 to get a price $20.00 cheaper and wait two.5 weeks for the parts (unwrapped the same as Jenson w/o support)? The whole idea of EP was to get the parts out to guy's who sold them and let them do the selling. But, having to work for the discount off the clock with trainings and waiting....It was too much-

Shimano XTR Trail Wheels - Review
Wuzupjosh.....That's funny I was thinking the same thing- I left the shop world as "this" was becoming a thing. Often the Jenson price was lower than the distributor and the shipping faster. Also...When I added the off the clock 'training's" in for shimano, giant, 3.5 etc..... It was cheaper for me to Ribble or CRC than to even to EP especially Shamino groups.

Shimano XTR Trail Wheels - Review
I think it has something to do with manufacturing, as I understand. Getting the hub shell hard, polished and light is something that seems to be mitigated by the ease of pressing in cartridge bearings (thus we've only got shim and campy on this end and heaps of the other types). I can't speak to either being superior: as I can hardly tell the difference between sh!t and shinola
