SRAM AXS and Eagle Boss Joins YT as Head of Development
@NickB01: HOw long have you been working for YT by the way? to be honest not seen a post 2017 capra locally, people have got wise to them and moved onto more sensibly built and spec-ed bikes. everything e thirteen falls to pieces, the bb's last weeks, the rear hubs not much longer. you are right about the droppers though total shite. wonder why they swapped from the tiny little torx heads? maybe because they were doing exactly what i said they do, i understand owners and employees are going to defend their bike, but as a neutral bike mechanic i would urge anyone to avoid them, go canyon, propain or radon if you really must go direct, they are far better put together bikes even though they haven't bought themselves the "bro image" that YT have. Cheap for a reason.

@endlessblockades: i know many people that have bought YT's but i do not know of a single one of them that bought another, i know they have their fans for the perceived value but the fact is they are cheap for a reason. the frames (at least the carbon ones) are shocking, and the component specs are very often blingy name brands that tend to fall to pieces and cost a fortune to replace like all the e thirteen junk they put on them. The bolts have torque heads that are far to small for the size of the bolt they are in, the way the ACB bearings in the swing link are assembled is a joke and most of the end up stripping the treads on the weird bolt together insert, the rear ends rarely line up and the quality of the carbon inside is verging on dangerous. Canyon, propain radon etc are all very well made bikes but i have found YT quality to be total dogshit.

@underhillz: it doesnt matter how much carbon we stop producing, we could produce none at all and the temperature would still rise, man made Co2 is around 1.2-1.8% of the total that is produced. look at history prior to the last 200 years or so rather than relying on the very selective data that the climate change cultists endlessly regurgitate. we will almost certainly find a way to wipe our selves out way before NATURAL climate change gets to the point where we cannot manage it.

no one denies it's warming, the issue is that its a totally natural phenomena the planet has warmed and cooled many times, we are actually coming out of an ice age right now, the planet isn't warming its going back to its normal non iceage temperature. if this is caused by man how did the other 5-6 iceage/warming cycles occur? Man made climate change is the myth, one that governments have found is a very effective way to tax more and more money out of people in the name of saving the poor children. We are not going to see any real affects for a loooonnggg time but there is nothing we can do to stop it or slow it. we just have to accept that we are possibly going to go extinct because of it at some point in the future just like 99.9% of every species that ever existed has. TL;;DR we can't win so why try.

@bvd453: i dont think electric cars are a realistic alternative to combustion engines, the energy density of the batteries is just too low for them to cover reasonable mileages, money should be being thrown at hydrogen fuel cells not dead end tech like batteries.
