First Look: 2023 Commencal T.E.M.P.O. - A New Short Travel Trail Bike
@ryan-pnw: I dunno... "downgrading" to the Pike and Rockshock Select+ with Spank Rims, TRP brakes and SX/NX drivetrain seems like pretty exceptional value at $3200. When was the last time you saw a $3200 bike with anything anywhere near that spec? That $800 could easily get you an XT drivetrain and a Vorsprung coil when you've shedded your first cassette and ready to tinker with the suspension.

Review: O-Chain's Active Spider Adds Suppleness & Silence
So in the first Yeti shop video, he doesn't hold the crank arm and yanks aggressively on the rear wheel to guide it through the travel. And on cue somebody dropped a whole tray of bearings on the floor. In the 2nd shop video, he moves it carefully while holding the crank and the guy who was meant to drop the bearings clearly missed his cue.

[Updated with Official Response] Stanton Bikes Calls Administrators, Up For Sale
@Mntneer: Yikes... can't believe I defended you. Very aggressive. You could have come at this in a much more tactful way. Also, Canadians would understand plenty of British-isms, we are members of the Commonwealth and our legal system is based on British common-law. Finally, your derogatory response confirms: I don't like your use of "gibberish" sir, I now find it offensive. ;)

[Updated with Official Response] Stanton Bikes Calls Administrators, Up For Sale
@jammf: From one member of the commonwealth to another (I'm a Canuck in the USofA)... You seem concerned that Mntneer is passing a value judgement on the King's English, but maybe it's you? Perhaps "gibberish" doesn't carry the same negative connotation where he/she is from that it does for you? It does after all have multiple meanings (carrying different connotations) itself. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/gibberish. And yeah, "falling into administration" could certainly qualify as "technical or esoteric".

Sixpack Racing Launches 1st Ride Series Components for Kids
I'm not a big fan of metal pins on my kids bikes either (they are 5 and 7), but it all depends what they are riding and how they are progressing. In my case they are still at the "put both my feet down after I brake" rather than "lean one side and get one foot down" stage. That means LOTS of pedal to calf contact which can bring a quick end to the good times of a days ride... and then resistance the next time out, which slows progression. My solution is for them to wear their soccer shinguards on backwards, which seems to work really well. We'll probably progress to pins when the terrain dictates, but for the typical pump track and beginner single track, vinyl is just fine/preferred.

First Look: Race Face's Era Carbon Cranks Are Guaranteed For Life
"Future proof" Cinch system chainrings... you mean like my 5 bolt chainrings? or my 4-bolt chainrings? Or maybe my biopace oval chainrings?... oh no, wait. Those ones are back.

Tech Week 2023: Oquo Are a New Brand of Carbon Wheels From Orbea
@bonkmasterflex: Totally agree. On the one hand you get WAO wheels that are using the same hubs (or I9s if you prefer) and are at the same price point as Orbea's midrange MP30LTD and you get a full lifetime warranty. Why anyone would take the chance on Orbea when WAO literally built their brand based on hand-made wheels that are as cheap or cheaper... I just don't get it. PS: Just helped my bro-in-law buy an Orbea a couple weeks ago... not disparaging the brand or the bikes. I just don't get the price point for these.
