KMC X11EPT ECO ProteQ Chain - Review
@kmcchain: Thanks for the response. Using 11/128. My eyes get crossed reading that catalog, too many features, and icons and stuff. I think my priorities are: 1) reasonable inexpensive trailside repair (your missing links have been great, I carry a bag of them) My chains have always failed after scraping on rocks, not the chain's fault but I need to be able to fix 2) durable (not break or wear too quickly) 3) value for money (chain is a wear item so stupid to pay too much) I doubt i'd pay more than $30 for a chain. 4) weight 5) rust proof I've heard the higher speed chains are stronger. Why would a singlespeed prefer the x8 or x9? In my experience the 10-11 speed chains seem to wear better but I'm just one person so my sample is small. I'd love to get a suggestion from engineers that know the numbers. Before the 10.93 I was using a SRAM pc-xx1 hard chrome chain and it also lasted me very well. Thanks!

KMC X11EPT ECO ProteQ Chain - Review
Hi Mr KMC, Cool that you are commenting here. What chain would you recommend for a singlespeed? I am currently using your 10.93 and it seems to be working well. No rust on it either but as rainy northwest rider I'm pretty careful about lube and cleanliness.

Do You Know How to Build a Wheel? - Pinkbike Poll
@nuttypoolog: Agreed. Hard to mess up building with good modern stuff, the standards are so much higher now. the wheels build up super fast. Sign of a real master is being able to quickly build a good wheel from a crappy rim.

8 Tips and Tricks for Wet Weather Riding
Good point about being sensible and bailing when there's gusting wind. Out enjoying a ride one stormy afternoon, kept hearing creaks and booms. Then a tree fell across trail about 100 feet ahead of me. Turned tail and went back to momma. Is a kind of danger I am not interested in courting.

8 Tips and Tricks for Wet Weather Riding
Lots of good here. Personally I think 90% of the problem is attire: finger gloves, goggles, a good jacket, lots of wool underlayers. All good. Fender, brake pads... meh... but theres two other items that make a big deal to my comfort: 1) Waterproof socks. I got showers pass socks for a 60 mile mud race. Have >30 hours on them, they are amazing because they look like socks, thin enough to fit in my shoes but really are waterproof and breathe. Sounds crazy impossible but its true. These makes a huge difference to my foot temperature and comfort when its freezing and wet. 2) Lightweight running gaiters. $20, stop rain and mud from going into the tops of my shoes, helps prevent shoes from filling with water and dirt.

Yoga For Sore, Weak or Inflexible Wrists - Monthly Yoga with Abi
I have a product suggestion for releasing stuck facia: moji pro. Steel ball bearings are very precise, very strong effect so must be gentle but I've found it much more effective than foam rollers or lacross ball. Thanks Abe!
