The New Craftworks ENR v1.1 High Pivot 160mm Enduro Bike
I went to the Craftworks website and learned that they’re in Australia. I read the article again, this time with the Ozzy Man Reviews voice. Fantastic!

A $999 Wireless Dropper Post, New Tires, Tools & More - Taipei Cycle Pre-Show
@blkmrktrider156: I don’t know about you, but if I’m going to plunk down some serious cash, it had better be on a component made by a company that really shines as the best in their field. Obviously that brand is RST.

First Look: Breezer Repack - Eurobike 2013
Hey Mike, I agree with your comment about the real world being the decider of the design - if it works then all of this armchair engineering won't matter. I design and build industrial machinery and the emphasis is placed on durability. We're talking millions upon millions of cycles between service intervals, so admittedly my perspective is a bit skewed. That being said I am glad to hear that Breezer can convert the design to a bushing if the need arises. Sorry about the bro comment, just thought it would help lighten up an otherwise long and nerdy post!

First Look: Breezer Repack - Eurobike 2013
"This mid-chainstay pivot location means that the pivot only needs to move 3 degrees as the bike goes through its travel, which should help extend the lifespan of the sealed cartridge bearings." This is a flawed statement. If I'm reading this correctly (which I may not be) then it sounds like the design uses a cartridge bearing to rotate 3 degrees. Rolling element bearings that are used for oscillating applications must rotate enough to provide at least one full rotation for each rolling element. This means that in a bearing with 10 balls, the bearing must rotate 36 degrees. For a bearing that rotates 3 degrees, this means that there must ne 120 rolling elements, which seems unlikely. Bearings that don't have this minimum rotation tend to fail (very) early due to fretting corrosion as the ball immediately wears through the lubrication. This is why bushings are typically used for these types of applications, bro.
