Review: 2023 Santa Cruz Nomad - Yes, It's Very Good
@stuie321: agreed. I’ve owned alot of different bikes over the past 27years. My megatower v1 is probably the only one to feel as fresh as the day I bought it (with good preventative maintenance practices of course). Nothing on the frame has come loose, rattled or creaked over the 2 1/2 seasons I’ve been riding it. From 3000’ vert shuttles, 15’+ drops, big jump trails, bike park laps… it just keeps on running like a rolex. That being said the most recent price hikes are beginning to look tougher and tougher to justify, even being a huge fan; If i were to buy the same build option for a MY22 V3 megatower it would cost me over $1500 more at my LBS than I paid for mine.. and one would think now that they’re using identical front triangles across some models that it would cut production costs quite a bit.. but what do I know

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 153 - Headset Cable Routing is... Good?
To be perfectly honest while they might look cleaner from afar. Most of these thru-headset cable solutions look like more of an eye sore to me up close… not to mention with the trickle down of technology. More and more bikes over the next few years could have wireless shifting and droppers, leaving only the rear brake to deal with leaving this rather useless. On a lighter note I can’t help but think how hilarious it would be if someone made a custom stem plate for that focus to look like an octopus with cables for tentacles.. because that’s all I can see when I look at that cable routing

Slack Randoms: Hummer eBikes, Rim Breaking Attempts, FKTs & More
@kingbike2: many years ago (mid-00’s) I remember Mtb action mag tested a 2 wheel drive full suspension bike. Had a crossed helical gear on the front hub along with a series of small drive shafts to connect with the rear wheel. Remember it was quite the interesting set up

Review Roundup: 4 Mountain Bike Rain Jackets Tested
Yes. I would love to see a brake shoot out. Considering there’s so much variability and personal preference with brakes. Code RSC vs TRP evo vs hope v4 vs shimano XT vs (formula, maybe toss trickstuff in there for the bling factor?).

First Look: Race Face's Era Carbon Cranks Are Guaranteed For Life
@raceface: thanks for the response , glad to hear it’s been improved upon. In the past the main issue I had with the nylon ring was more to do with the threads for the tiny screw stripping out easily (despite best efforts to be careful with it). I swapped to the metal canecreek version on my altas cranks and never had any issues with it. Naturally my anecdotal experience/impression of the preload ring was that a metal version has no real down sides other than a few grams and cost. Again cheers for the response!

Still looks like the same plastic preload ring though.. that definitely won’t last. Why not just do it right and make it metal like Canecreek
