Field Test: Kona Process 134 29 - Can't Stop, Won't Stop
@mikelevy: yea, while I appreciate the value bike field test, I think 2022 (and 2021) are the two worst years ever to do one of these in. Supply chains are a mess and the little guys like Kona are getting pushed to the back of the line behind big boys like Trek, Specialized, etc. So small companies are really being hurt more and have to spec even shittier stuff on their bikes. I realize that this is affecting everyone, but Trek's $3000 bike will be better spec'd in 2022 then Konas because Trek has massive weight to throw around with SRAM/Shimano and will get stuff first. In normal times the Trek will usually be spec'd a little better anyhow, but with supply shortages, the gap is much bigger.

Field Test: Kona Process 134 29 - Can't Stop, Won't Stop
@mtmc99: Kona does not have enough cash to 'not sell bikes' until they can get better brakes. They have payroll, rent, overhead, etc. They have to keep selling bikes to keep the company operating and not going out of business.

Field Test: Kona Process 134 29 - Can't Stop, Won't Stop
@dbullmtb: Not lazy. They have no choice. They either sell bikes with shit brakes or don't sell bikes for 6+ months and put themselves out of business.

Chris King Launches Range of Recyclable Carbon Wheels
Looks like they have a thin beak 'hook' molded or machined into them. That's just asking to get cracked like the Bontrager rims. So fragle. No need for a bead hook on low pressure MTB rims CC: Specialized. ... And heavy weights too--clearly trying to limit warranty claims like most carbon wheel mfgrs lately. Good to see they're using the Fusion Fiber though.

Review: The 2022 Canyon Strive is Longer, Slacker, & Still Has a Shapeshifter
Moir will run a medium (normal large for all other brands) with head angle in the steeper setting. I'm assuming 63.5deg was the absolute slackest he would run the bike, which is why they set it at 63 as the base head angle +/-5mm as the other riders probably wanted it slacker.

Review: The 2022 Canyon Strive is Longer, Slacker, & Still Has a Shapeshifter
What Canyon really has here in terms of size with their reaches are Medium, Large, X-Large and XX-Large. Which is great--they just need to add a small frame option in the 420-430mm. This is ridiculous they're saying a small is 455. What we really need to get away with is the SMALL, MEDIUM, LARGE BS. The bike industry needs to sell frames in the S1-S6 format to take away from the bias towards "I ride a LARGE", etc.

SRAM Quietly Launches New DB8 Mineral Oil Brakes
They said for high end use/performance, go DOT. These are not their high end brakes.

Jolanda Neff & Anton Cooper Unable to Take to the Start Line of Short Track
Lots of riders in the pro road peloton getting sick the past 2 months. Bugs now transmitting full force with people living normally again and few getting sick (unless it was COVID) for the past two years.
