5 Details About SRAM's Wireless AXS Components
@Gasket-Jeff: The OEM version will only work if it can find the SRAM brakes that were on the bike when you bought it. After offering the app for free to build the user base, SRAM introduces a monthly subscription program. In five years, AXS parts are dirt cheap on Ebay because the Android app won't run on the current Facebook OS phones, and Android has gone the way of Windows Phone.

Guerrilla Gravity's Less Expensive, US-Made Carbon Frame
Would definitely be on the short list, but the seat tube length of 457mm in size M means it's for people with longer legs than me :(

Top half of the frame is lightweight? What's their warranty/crash replacement like?

@FR33DOMdotCOM: High rise bar is equivalent to spacers and a longer stem. What matters is where your hands end up, and not how you get there, as far as geo goes.

Video: Tech Talks - Wheel Balance 101, Presented by Park Tool
Pretty much the same procedure and tools the tire guys in the pits run through after putting a fresh set of rubber on your roadracing motorcycle wheels -- except they get the job done a lot quicker than these guys. Some of the racing tire manufacturers are nice enough to put a mark on at the heaviest point so you can orient it across from the valve. Don't think it's worth the bother for the comparatively low speeds in cycling though. At least most of the valve stems nowadays are Presta type, so the tire can't go flat at high speeds due to centrifugal force overcoming the spring force in a Schrader valve :)

Review: Mons Royale Redwood 3/4 Raglan T-Shirt
I searched through their 3/4 shirts awhile back (mostly the ones from last year on sale) and gave up since I couldn't find one that didn't look like a MMOONNSS RROOYYAALLEE billboard. I'm not partial to the Dieter Bohlen look. Just in case someone from the company reads the comments. Also a reason for not buying stuff from this year's FFFOOOXXX collection. If they were paying me to wear their LLOOGGOOSS that would be one thing, but alas they're not (but that's OK, I don't blame them for that).

4 Reasons Why You Should Enter a Race This Year - Opinion
I guess you have to answer the question "If you could wake up tomorrow and ride like someone, who would it be?" Who do you look up to? If the answer is Rachel Atherton or Nino Schurter, then yeah, what are you waiting for? If the answer is Semenuk or McAskill, what's the point? Why bother?
