Review: Enve’s M735E Wheelset Fails Our Test
Good job PinkBike! At that price, which is considerably higher than equivalent technology, a buyer will really expect perfection. You might not say or claim to be perfect, but the price somehow implies it.

Review: Industry 9 Trail 270 Wheels
yup I9s are strong. My riding buddy ran over his front wheel (old enduro aluminum version) with my pickup (yes, dont ask how). Messed up the rotor completely, and gouged out an endcap. But no spokes broke, rim was ok, it stayed mostly true, and is running straight to this day!

Orbea Digit Dropper Post: First Look
Hmmmm....Put a spring at the bottom of the seat tube/post and you have a lever type dropper post that will spring up if you release the clamp.

SRAM Announces New Hub Standards - Boost 148 and 110
I like technology moving forward. Hydraulic disc brakes, dropper posts and the 1x10 narrow wide chainrings are definitely boons to bikers everywhere. This is real innovation. Real world benefits and you can slap it on your existing bike and feel the difference. But creating new "tech" and "standards" which are only supposedly slightly incrementally better than a standard that already works fine or even better (such as 20x110!) smells like marketing bull to me. Who really feels and needs an incrementally stiffer wheel? Not a lot. For those who do, they just get stronger spokes and rims. They say a 29er wheel with their new standard will be as stiff as a 27.5 wheel with the old standard. But do you really need a stiffer 29er wheel considering that these will mostly be found on xc bikes? For us who still have 2nd or 3rd bikes with QRs on both ends, 3x8 drivetrains and straight steerer tubes, these new "standards" only limit our upgrade choices, and force us to buy new bikes. Marketing driven bull...

OneUp Components RAD Cage - Review
Got mine and installed it easily on my beat up XTR med cage, with a cracked carbon cage. Did not need the long B-screw. Shifts like XTR again. Seems to be better in the smaller cogs. When before it used to skip in the smaller cogs when sprinting all out on some choppy stuff, this was stable. Although a real full blown test is still due. Together with a 42t cog, Narrow-wide ring and the 16t cog, this completes a 1x10 full conversion.

Pinkbike Poll: Are You Prepared, or Are You a Parasite?
Im usually the most prepared in the group, both in spares/tools and know how, so much that some riding buddies insist on me being around on long epics through the jungle. Im ok with that, and try to teach these dudes the basics. Its good to rack up the good karma. You'll never know when you go on a ride, realize you forgot to pack a tube or tool in your pack and get a flat or mechanical, and you have to rely on others. God knows I have.
