Industry Digest: Rapha CEO Steps Down, Trek Cargo Lost at Sea & More
@wobblegoblin: Lol right? I'd much rather have trails built and maintained by local trail organizations and local bike companies than fucking Walmart. As far as I can tell, Bentonville is just a bunch of 12 ft wide, smooth flow trails with lame wooden features.

Trail Tools: Electric Chainsaw Vs. Electric Sawzall
If you get a high quality gas saw and drain it or use fuel stabilizer when it sits for a while, the maintenance is honestly pretty minor. If someone is buying their first saw, I always recommend gas. Electric saws are nice as a second or third saw but I still don't think they're in a place where they can compete with gas, especially when you look at pricing.

Tech Tuesday: How & Why to Upgrade Your Pads and Rotors
The only thing worse than centerlock is having to use a centerlock to 6 bolt adapter because you have Shimano hubs and someone else's brakes. So much play in that system.

Staff Rides: Henry Quinney's Transition Spire
@wburnes: I don't understand people willing to spend big on carbon when manufacturers refuse to warranty rock strikes. The amount of carbon bikes with cracked downtubes is insane. Carbon is fine for the road and gravel set but it doesn't belong anywhere near a mountain bike imo.

Video: XC Sucks with Lief Rodgers
As a former extremely mediocre road racer, I agree with all of this. I can't honestly believe I participated in that sport for as long as I did lol. Amateur road racing is filled with two things: Douchebags and crashes.

Field Test: Evil Following - Stout, Stiff, & Snappy
@chakaping: Yeah, it would have been terrible to race XC on. Mine was as heavy as an enduro bike and it climbed like an absolute pig with the weight and the short chainstays. Super fun bike but not practical in any sense of the word.

Tech Tuesday: Volume Spacers and Spring Curves
@Nwilkes: With no tokens, I'm at ~100psi on a 22 Ultimate with rebound 2 clicks from open. LSC and HSC completely open. I weigh 175. The 2 tokens are the reason it feels so divey off top and mid for you.

Tech Tuesday: Volume Spacers and Spring Curves
Does anyone remember the volume spacer arms race when people first started using these things? Bro, you only ride with 4 spacers? I charge so hard I need 7! I remember riding other people's forks that had no initial or mid stroke support at all- it was just fork dive into a wall of progression. At this point with my Lyrik ultimate I've removed all the volume spacers and added a ton of air pressure. It rides so much better than the old days of even 2 spacers.

Tech Week 2023: Vee Tire Co Releases New Models Developed with Aaron Gwin
Not the fastest rolling is definitely an understatement lol. I had a maxx terra minion on the back before and I'm having to pedal on sections of trail where I used to brake. Grip is amazing for sure and the price can't be beat.
