OneUp Components' Travel-Adjustable Dropper Post - First Ride
@slimboyjim: I agree, it was honest... but not helpful in any way. I just wish they had more knowledge about chainlines to help customers troubleshoot OneUp chainrings. Makes me wonder if I'd get the same helpful response if I had an issue with their seat dropper... "Sorry, we don't have any answers". Pretty disappointing product support.

OneUp Components' Travel-Adjustable Dropper Post - First Ride
My experience with Oneup's customer service regarding a chainline issues with one of their rings... here is the email response that I got: "Hi, This sounds frustrating. I can tell you that no direct mount ring has more offset than 6mm, our or anyone's. Sorry i don't have more answers. (Person from Oneup)" A+++ Very helpful.

Correct, you certainly are not a physicist.

Syncros Matchbox Tailor HV1.5 Bottle Cage – Review
No 6mm!? That's a shame... will not work for me. Really misses the mark, Syncros (aka, Scott Sports Global Limited Liability Corporation International Sporting Goods Conglomerate house brand).

Yoann Barelli's Commencal Meta AM V4.2 - Finale Ligure EWS 2017
38/50 Eagle is an easier gear than 32/42, which is a pretty standard setup for 11 speed drivetrains. Many frames will only clear a 36t ring, which really limits the benefit of Eagle... unless you really need that uber-slow granny gear.

MRP's Boost Solution and New Ramp Control Cartridge - Interbike 2017
Something tells me you shouldn't use a boost adapter on the cassette side because it will mess up your chainline...

No frame only options... no thanks. A complete bike is useless for me because I'm going to take off every. single. component.

Spēd Precision Maul TR Wheels - Review
@SpedPrecision: Thanks for the reply. You guys definitely have an interesting wheelset since you've been able to tune the whole rim/spoke/hub shell system to have a specific ride feel. That's pretty cool... but it's going to be difficult to pull me away from my collection of I9 hubs. I'm sure other people are similar and have a preference for a particular high-quality hub brand. Good point about breaking a derailleur and warranty. Obviously, broken derailleurs are usually caused by rider error (took a bad line = snagged derailleur on a rock, crashed = smashed derailleur). I'm sure you guys have wrestled with this question: When is a cracked rim from a rock strike a rider error or design error? As you mentioned, you guys have designed your rims to withstand rock strikes on a regular basis. So a rock strike is obviously a part of the rim design. So if a carbon rim gets cracked from a rock strike... is that because of a poor design or because the rider was riding too aggressively? I guess there probably isn't a correct answer to that, it's shades of gray. All I can say is that I've cracked 4 carbon rims on my XC bike. Was that bad luck? Statistically, no. Were the rims insufficiently designed? Maybe. Was I riding too aggressively? Also maybe. When my current carbon rim supplier stops sending me free replacement rims, I might go back to alu rims for a while until the carbon rim market matures a bit more.

Ask Us Anything: DVO Suspension - Finished
I have two(!) Diamonds, and love them. Sweet, sweet forks for sure. I've been thinking about getting a Sapphire at 120mm for my XC hardtail. Besides being a bit more flexy than the Diamond, what differences can I expect with the damper and air spring on the Sapphire? I think I read that the Sapphire uses an open cartridge damper... does that mean the damper oil mixes with the lower oil?
