Field Test: Kona Process 153 CR/DL 29
Then I think there's a follow up question to ask for those of us who want fun over fast but haven't ridden a 29er in any meaningful way: is there a fun-vs-fast trade-off between 27.5 and 29" wheels?

Tested: 5 Ways to Hold a Tube on Your Frame
Just went to MEC's site and the snowshoe straps that came up in quick search are $10, $13, or $15 for a pair. Of those, only the $15 set appear to have their own fasteners (the others look like they'd rely on fasteners built into the snow shoes), and those fasteners are metal, which I don't want near my bike. What am I missing?

That stealth black/grey XTR group was one of the smoothest looking groupos ever.

Trending: Mountain Bike Tech to Look for in 2019
Although tubeless was initially about saving weight, it was the improved ride characteristics and ability to run lower pressures without risk of pinch flats that really made it great. Weight be damned. I want to have fun and the best way to do that is by maximizing handling and minimizing time spent fixing tires on the trail. Whether the latter is due to pinch flats or sidewall tears, I don't care. They both suck.

Here's a New Standard We Should Get Behind - Taipei Cycle Show 2018
Right? So many comments here saying it's not that hard now. But for folks like you, that extra minute or two saved a couple times a day could really add up. I just like the idea for my own bike because aligning bars is not fun, even if it's not particularly hard.

@muyguapa: exactly. Take the fork and lay it in a moulded jig that holds it perfectly flat, then add an etch mark from a fixed-position tool and be on your way.

That's a great solution. But it isn't like these guys are trying to reinvent the wheel. It's a pretty simple modification to forks and stems that could make shop life a little bit easier without adding significant cost to either part. Most importantly, everything would still be backwards-compatible and interchangeable with parts that don't have these marks/slots.

First Look: Industry Nine's A35 Stem
I'm sure they can and do break, but it's extremely rare compared to every other part on a bike. Seriously, it might have the lowest failure rate of any bike component.

Photo Epic: King of the Kootenays - At Home with Kurt Sorge
I only got to ride twice when I was there a couple years ago, but one of them was a ride from Baldface back to the lake (Cherry Bowl to Swamp Donkey to Shannon Pass) and that's the ride I'll never forget. The photos at the top of Baldface in this article brought back some nice memories. Put that in your itinerary for next year for sure if you can find someone to shuttle you up.
