First Look: Transition's All-New Spur is a Rowdy XC Bike
@vinay: the length of the shock stays the same, preserving the geo of the bike. The shorter travel is achieved by a travel spacer, not by actually shortening the shock eye-yo-eye. The travel is limited and the shock will bottom out earlier at 100mm. So you get to keep those gorgeous lines!

Take a closer look at under the downtube. Yeah, I know, poor excuse for a water bottle cage mount, but it's there.

Review: Bontrager's New $1300 Line Pro 30 Carbon Wheels
@nouseforaname: Its probably not Trek, Its likely Keith. If you know him, you would know he likes to keep a low profile. He drives a beat up old Ranger and lives in a very modest house in Midtown of SC. I had the opportunity to go over there and check out all his old stuff and he even helped me out when I was a budding wheel builder on best building techniques years ago. The guys is a heck of an engineer and also a very kind and humble dude, oh and a hell of a cook. Just wants to be left alone a bit more these days. Gary Fisher.... Never buys the drugs - party foul. But after all those years of getting fried - he loves the limelight and the public loves his quirky demeanor. He presents himself as a sort of real-life Willy Wonka for the bike industry. I like that too.

Review: Bontrager's New $1300 Line Pro 30 Carbon Wheels
@kev-bike: I think this is a hit/miss scenario. I have a hub sitting on my desk right now with over 5000 miles on it (hub only as you can guess what happened to the rim... this hub has seen a few of them) and when i pull the FH body off, theres no signs dirt or water ingress and factory grease is still intact, bearings in both the hub shell and FH body are smooth as butter and crazy low friction. This is also one of the early RapidDrive hubs that was offered on the Line Pro (2017?, 18?) but I dont think design has changed. Maybe not as durable as a White Industries or DT Swiss, but also not below average, in my personal case. YMMV.

First Ride: 2021 Ibis Mojo 4 - Longer, Slacker, & Lighter
@cogsci: It could be argued that after 16 years of materials science and carbon manufaturing development, you can make a frame just and strong and lighter without. But I am not a materials engineer. No doubt the brace adds stregth, but is it really needed now?

First Ride: 2021 Ibis Mojo 4 - Longer, Slacker, & Lighter
Ibis has seriously stepped up their game lately, but lets talk about that frame design... I feel like its due for a major refresh. The first gen Mojo HD was released in 2005, and it looked great for the first 10 or so years, but here we are 16 years later...

I hate how true this is. I reccomend making a connection with a shop and make sure it gets done right. I have spent upwards of $10,000 in training making sure I can do anything at pro level without question, and quickly. Putting professional work in the hands of an ameteur devalues the countless hours and money spent a lot of us pro mechanics have invested to make sure you get world-cup quality service, every time. I hope one of your local shops can help you, because I definitely would not spend my hard-earned money on junk service, and you shouldn't either.
