Ribble Cycles Introduces 2 New Aluminum Hardtails - Pond Beaver 2021
They're flipped compared to Ribble's site, which has the 27" w/ the shorter chainstays and slacker HT. No wonder they have experts standing by. I built a 725 with GX, Fox 34 and Transfer K--'completely customizable' is an extreme exaggeration--about $4500 shipped to USA with end of July delivery promised....

Ask Pinkbike: Long-Travel vs Short-Travel Trail Bike, Measuring Fork Stiffness, Heavy Tires or Inserts?
@Civicowner: that's no wall--save those for the patent office, the taxman, and Marcel Proust. I too was engrossed by unattributed graph. Most appropriate use for tokens is--XC racing? Thanks for the help

Ask Pinkbike: Long-Travel vs Short-Travel Trail Bike, Measuring Fork Stiffness, Heavy Tires or Inserts?
@Civicowner: so y-axis is Newtons of force and x is travel in mm? I'm comparing this to the graphs in the adsorption article...it's confusing because one can't actually use 70psi with three tokens w/o bottoming, and at 100psi the three token line (lowest line at 100mm?--I'm color blind) would have the highest N in the 32-42mm topstroke after sag? Would be nice if the coil weight were specified, despite the imperial unity. It's no big stretch to think that tokens/spacers are a progressive crutch which reduces travel, and that the biggest manufacturers are in a competition to produce plastic waste

First Look: Ride Concepts' TNT Mid-Top Shoe - Pond Beaver 2021
@scstrail: not even all 5.10s fit the same. Toe boxes have room in three dimensions... @G-Sport: yep, another lame first look review which skimps on the most important criterion. Photo three of the Dakine's that came up today shows a tall toe box in a forefoot fit that I call 'baggy,' but I need narrow low profiles

@njcbps: let us know if you find any tokens in there, and if removing them helps. According to manufacturer, their effect on topstroke is insignificant, but it's an easy place to start, and no cost if you've a lockring tool

@Civicowner: good call. I used this fork for thirty hours with little intention of keeping it and without checking for tokens, and probably mistakenly concluded that it was too stiff for its weight. I detest tokens/spacers--waste of space. Mezzer et al ftw

First Look: Race Face's New Next SL Bars Are Lighter & More Compliant - Pond Beaver 2021
@dirtyburger: but we're filling that absolutely nonunitized massive space with anecdotes--at least weight and deflection are potentially measurable. Should vibration damping also be a part of 'compliance'?--the smaller diameter heavier bar would seem to be at an advantage. Same for toughness. When stem material/dimensions, grips, rider weight, terrain, and fork flex are factored, it's almost not worth discussing. That's why I'd ride what Metallier rides--if I didn't like M9 so much--but didn't kick NextR35 out of bed. Problems, problems, problems
