Greg Minnaar vs Luca Shaw vs Loris Vergier: 3 Santa Cruz V10s Head to Head
@DirtyDee: you know how I can tell you’ve never worked in a bike shop? Trying to explain the word Geometry, let alone what a head angle is to the vast majority of customers is like banging your head against the wall. Trying to explain the advantages of two different size wheels, best of luck getting the customer to actually internalize their bike has two different size wheels. I’d bet money on getting a phone call “I bought a bike from you a month ago and I got a flat today and my brother’s friend’s cousin’s uncle told me my wheels are two DIFFERENT sizes! I need to talk to manager, this is ridiculous”. It’s brilliant when you get a customer who knows what’s up and you get to nerd out. Otherwise you’re stuck trying to explain how a Demo is different from an Epic. The bike industry isn’t here to sell the best possible product, it’s here to sell the most product to most number of people, with the least demand on a margin suppressed dealer network with an underwhelming amount of trained staff.

First Look: Fox's New Transfer Dropper Post - Pond Beaver 2020
@jaame: I didn’t say that you did. Worked on and serviced and sold more droppers than you can shake a stick at.

@Sebov: V2’s suck as well. Lose air pressure often and need lots of bushing servicing, if they haven’t made them too tight. Too much flex in the post.

Think you might see it when 34.9 becomes a thing. Fox keeps telling me they won’t make anything of any useful length because they can’t get the bushing overlap they want. It’s why theirs are so long, their 170mm post is comical. But like a 200mm OneUp is garbage and flexy, and gets wicked bushing binding if not greased constantly. BikeYoke are the only seatposts out there worth owning, they listen to the market and build wicked shit. Once you’ve figured out the 20 minute reverb service, they’re my second place post.

Now Finished: Fox Factory Ask Us Anything
@foxfactory: with the tube inside a tube setup, is there a coil cartridge coming down the pipe? Vanilla’s coming back?

OneUp Components Announces New Chainrings, Thru-Axles, & Large-Diameter Dropper Post
@inveloveritas: this is my question. So stupid that isn’t not bigger, especially in these huge lengths.

The Grim Donut is Already Spawning Imitations
@jorgeposada: it’s his everlasting sadness from when he used to be fast. Now wants to make everyone ride old silly bikes so he can keep a useful handicap. #realmenridecantis

Interview: SRAM CEO Ken Lousberg on Engineering, Maternity Leave, Equal Pay & More
@jcklondon: too accurate. If this was real, they would just do it organically. Buying ad space across a bunch of websites is just a joke and would be quite patronizing to me. In the mean time I’ll just be busy throwing another SX shifter in the ocean.
