First Look: 2021 Specialized Epic & Epic Evo
Need Top Tube lengths in a geometry chart Specialized. Too much variation in how manufacturers measure seat tube angle to skip giving us that key piece to compare with Reach. Thanks

@Bomadics: Yep, “nuclear is clean” is a supreme political con game. I’ve lived 1.5 miles from a leaky nuclear plant, nearly all of my life now. In the US, the nuclear regulatory commission is staffed by those who go to school to learn how to operate new plants... so the ‘watchdogs’ are bred and raised at the teat of the defilers. Big surprise then that year after year, violation after a violation, Pilgrim nuclear power station continued to receive polite little, “You’re not doing this right but we’re going to give you a 35th chance to try to get it right”- love notes from the NRC, plus beyond-designed-lifetime License Extensions despite consistently endangering its 40 million neighbors. And example so good you couldn’t make it up - pilgrim, like Fukushima, and I forget exactly how many ~20 or 30 other plants in the US - are General Electric Mark 1 designs. As construction began, the NRC realized the containment structure was not strong enough to *actually contain* a runaway reaction. The Magic bullet? Just retrofit these reactors with vents. Because venting an out of control reaction of DNA-scrambling radionuclear isotopes Is better than...? We guess it’s better than the silhouette and PR disaster of a nuke plant that’s blown it’s wad. After all the average citizen probably doesn’t even know that “contain” and “vent” aren’t synonyms anyway right? We’re good here gentlemen, meeting adjourned.

I’m assuming top two measurements are a typo?

First Look: DT Swiss' New 240 EXP Hubs
Yep, Backwards. American Classic designed a steel lip to protect their aluminum hub bodies – worked great. Why won’t DT quality/durability masters do it already??

Reverse Components' 2020 Bike Hacks Collection - Pond Beaver 2020
Still waiting for Problem Solvers or these guys to figure out a forward-offset set clamp that can be retrofitted to one of the more reliable droppers, so those of us with nice older bikes can reap the benefits of steeper seat-tube angles... First choice, 9point8’s brilliant (& Canadian) execution of the mechanical brake in place of hydraulic cartridge – temperature proof, never needs bleeding!! ...silky smooth. ... Pretty Please!??
