Nicolai Releases New Saturn 14 Trail Bike
@Fooon: On the website, when you roll over the different frames or bikes, it displays the bike's travel, weight, wheel size and intended use. Surprisingly the difference is bigger for frame only (+-800g) rather than for the whole bike (+-400g).

Nicolai Releases New Saturn 14 Trail Bike
Mmh indeed, no cable routing on the side of the headtube, but if you look at all their frames that routing is only on frames with a headtube gusset (a few hardtail have a gusset but no cable routing).

Nicolai Releases New Saturn 14 Trail Bike
@Serpentras: You really don't see the need for this bike ? Water Bottle :p More seriously, one is a trail bike with 130mm, the other an enduro with 160mm, one weights 2.95, the other 3.60, one has a 1264mm wheelbase, the other 1324mm, etc. Different bikes for different uses. Trail bikes may get burlier, if "the burlier the better" was a universal truth we'd see Shurter on a Ransom.

Suspension, Anti-Lock Brakes, and a Dropper Post Cable Kit - Taipei Cycle Show 2019
I don't see how this antilock can work, I mean, on cars AFAIK there's some high frequency regulator, I don't think you get this there, so it's "just" a pressure lock as you could use on a garden hose. So, unless I miss something, if you set it up on the pavement then go ride in the wood or whatever dusty trail where the grip is much lower, it may be pretty much ineffective and your brake will lock eaasily. Reversely, if you set it up on the trail, you make lack braking power when you're back on the pavement, or even on some more grippy parts of the trail.

Bike Check: Bernard Kerr's Pivot Phoenix 29 Carbon - Crankworx Rotorua 2019
I'm surprised it's a Large, it looks really small. I mean, I know the big wheels make the frame look smaller, but it looks smaller than other 29er. I also like the industrial look of the Banshee.

Lone Bicycles Announces Parabellum Adjustable Frame
@Geochemistry: Really ? There was a lawsuit ? Or just some sort of "cease & desist" letter ? Still, this is one of the things in this world that baffle me, how you can trademark a name that is probably a family name originally. (well IMO Lone shouldn't bother with weapon related names on their bikes). Just like adidas and its army of lawyers ready to sue anyone who draws a logo with 2, 3, 4, 5 stripes. As if they were first to ever draw stripes since the dawn of humanity.

Review: Industry Nine's New Hydra Hubs Have 690 Points of Engagement
@browntown40: Thanks, but my brain is annoying and wants to understand what triggers the engagement again : In a perfect system, in the void, with no air, no gravity, no friction, the sprag could stay titlted even when the axle changes direction right ? But in real there's always enough friction to start tilting the sprags in the other way, then as soon as they get caught in the little grooves of the inner an outer circles everything gets blocked and the hub engages, right ? So physically speaking, there's probably a very very light noise right ? (my brain is stupidly precise sometimes :p)
