Niner Acquired by United Wheels - Chris Sugai Talks About What Lies Ahead
@Sycip69er: are you serious? In my riding group alone, several people have cracked Niner frames. One guy cracked his stays, took his bike to the dealer, got the warranty replacement, and then cracked that on his *first ride*. Even the most XC guy in our group who used to ride Niners no longer does, and says they crack.

Finals Photo Epic - Pro GRT #1 at Windrock Bike Park
Fantastic work on the part of Neko. Passed my slow self in the air on a jump at the top once, but was a real class act about it haha. Congrats as well to the builders and crew at Windrock! Slick and rocky, that is an average day at Windrock alright!

Here's a Better Look at the Prototype GT Downhill Bike - Windrock Pro GRT
@YouHadMeAtDrugs: It doesn't surprise me that much. The reason anyone ever uses an idler is that the instant center is located sufficiently far from the top of the front chainring that the chain gets stretched a lot. Also the idler is used on bikes that aren't single pivots. The Canfield Jedi is a 4 bar and not a single pivot. However it's designed specifically to have a more or less stationary (and high) instant center. So, they put the idler right at the location of the IC. In the case of a design like the GT's Horst, I would expect the IC not to be stationary, and the location of the idler to be the best attempt at reducing chain stretch on a design where it is technically impossible to eliminate it completely.

There's a Fine Line Between Clever and Stupid - Opinion
What gets me is what passes for "technology" in the bike world. What's been happening for the last 5 years is a revolution in *design*, yet everyone talks about 11 speed like physicists disappeared into the lab, opened a door to a forbidden reactor, pulled out a cassette with an extra gear and exclaimed: "This is what the equations of Newton predicted generations ago!"

You do realize that your average height friends didn't create that problem for you, right? Sounds like you and your fellas need to hug it out.

SRAM's New DUB Cranks and Bottom Brackets - First Look
How often do I really change my BB, though? Anyway a typical BB is what, like $30? How many old-style bottom brackets do I have to change before it becomes worth the extra price to buy the new system (in other words to replace my cranks)? My feeling is that it would take a decade before that price advantage would show up.
