First Ride: 2021 Commencal Meta TR - Is Mini-Enduro a Thing?
Glad Commencal are offering a proper XL size finally. I’d be interested to know how the bearings compare to my old Meta. The bearings on that were huge compared to most bikes and lasted easily 4x as long as my Nukeproof.

Review: TRP's New DH-R EVO Brakes
@skelldify: Basically the same bleed process as Shimano. The threads at the lever are too large for the Shimano bleed cup, so either use the two syringe method with a TRP compatible bleed kit, or what I do is use a syringe with the plunger out as a DIY bleed cup. They don’t need bleeding often. I did 40,000m of descending in Les Arc last summer and the front needed a couple of bubble bleeds and the back was rock solid so didn’t touch it. Oil was still completely clean. Same trip the year before I was doing a full bleed every two days on Shimano and the oil was black.

Privateer Launch $3,075 161 Enduro Race Bike
@PrivateerBikes: 29er hardtail with 120-130mm fork and geometry the more aggressive end of "trail" category rather than full enduro so the bike is good for big all day rides as well as trail centres. Obviously threaded BB and external cables. SLX level components and a mid range fork that is reliable and easy to service. The aesthetics you already have nailed, so more of the same please.

Lithium-Sulfur Batteries Could Offer a Cheaper, Greener & More Efficient Alternative
Hopefully if this technology becomes mature it will reduce the amount of lithium required to manufacture batteries. The green lobby completely ignore the environmental damage and civil war that mining lithium is causing round the world. The move to electric power is a positive one, but the materials used in the technology also need to be sourced ethically and sustainably.

Britain to Remove Tariffs on Non-EU Bicycles in Event of No-Deal Brexit
What do people think of the CAP? As the EU spends nearly 40% of its budget on the CAP I'd imagine everyone with strong views about remaining or leaving would have strong opinions, or is it possible people don't understand how the EU actually works?

Britain to Remove Tariffs on Non-EU Bicycles in Event of No-Deal Brexit
@stoo61: If Scotland, Wales and NI declared independence they would be giving up the annual aid package they currently receive from England's taxpayers: £13bn to Scotland £14bn to Wales £10bn to NI Scotland would be in a particularly bad situation due to their huge deficit. England would be £37bn better off each year.

The following parts were new this summer and hardly ridden - frame bearings, headset, bottom bracket, chain ring, cassette, shifter, wheel bearings. Saddle will be new. Bike has been converted to 1x drivetrain, but front mech, shifter and chainrings are included if you want them.

BTR Pinner – Review
@poah: Completely agree with you, it is just the media in this country like to paint a very negative picture rather than focus on the many positives. EU’s very childish negotiation team are just trying to scare off any other country thinking about leaving and minimise the losses from their budget they will face when the UK leaves.
