Leaving Las Vegas: One Last Stroll Through the Halls of Interbike, 2017
Nicest thing about microshift is they offer thumbshifters in 10 and 11 speed shimano mountain/dyna-sys derailleur compatible versions.

Las Vegas Cirque du Cycling, Lap Two - Interbike 2017
Kmc is who produces a lot of shimano's chains... So...if they are announcing the x12 (which is the lower end of their multispeed chain modeos... The mid and upper are SL or DLC versions) as shimano compatible... Then its because they know what is slated already for production.

Solving the Dropper Post Dilemma
@miff: Its been my experience that the $100 droppers are far more reliable than the $400 ones.

Solving the Dropper Post Dilemma
The biggest challenge to droppers if finding one you like that's easy to setup and doesn't require an advanced engineering degree to keep working for more than 2 rides.

Staran FSM-140 – Review
Stiffening on compression depends on where the other pivots are located of a horst 4-bar, as how they all line up effects where the actual virtual pivot / instant center that its all really pivoting around ends up being. And then you need to determine which way the chainline is trying to pull the wheel, to that point. Ellsworth's for example put the instant center point as they called it, basically in line with the upper run of the chain, but several feet ahead of the front tire. This staran has the Virtual pivot point effectively being right where the front derailleur mount is on the seat tube.

@mikealive: The funny thing about Walmart and Costco is that because of their buying power... they actually CAN get better quality bikes than just the low end stuff people typically think of them carrying. Some stores do stock them. Most can be ordered via their customer websites. Especially good if you're capable of doing your own assembly/maintenance, and know how to use the google and email to find spares/info/reviews/etc. Take for example... at Walmart USA.... For $1699 USD there's this rather nice Steppenwolf (german brand) Tycoon AM70 26er full suspension available in medium and large sizes.... https://www.walmart.com/ip/Steppenwolf-Tycoon-AM70-26-M-18-5-Full-Suspension-All-Mountain-Bike-3x10s-NEW/859854947 You get an aluminum 4-bar horst link frame with 150mm front and back travel, Fox Fork and Shock, Avid Trail 9 brakes, FSA Cranks, BB and HS, 3x10 gearing, Schwalbe tires, DT 1700 Spline wheelset, Raceface stem & handlebars, Rockshox Reverb Stealth post, Shimano XT shifters/derailleurs/cassette/chain, 29.74 pounds without pedals. And at Costco Canada, we have this Mongoose TYAX Super 27.5+ hardtail for $680 CAD... https://www.costco.ca/Mongoose-Men%e2%80%99s-TYAX-SUPA-SPORT-Hardtail-Bike.product.100339659.html 2x8 Speed shimano Acera, aluminum hardtail, WTB Trailblazer 2.8 tires, Zoom suspension fork (roughly equal to a Suntour XCT or Rockshox XC30), Boost 110/141 QR spacing hubs, Alex 40mm tubeless ready rims, Prowheel 24/36 crankset is actually a 9/10 speed compatible mode, so change the cassette/chain/rear shifter/derailleur if you want to go with more or wider gearing. The frame has a tapered head tube, so you could easily find a take-off Suntour Raidon 27.5+ fork, and some wider/higher model tires, and upgrade the drivetrain and poof....under $1000 CAD a very trail capable hardtail. Either example, if you're in the market for that sort of bike...there are certainly better deals available shopping online than are typical in an LBS.

@Driven2madness: Were they STILL an official Giant dealer at the time they sold it ? Lots of stores lose accounts and then lose the ability to source spares from those brands. Meanwhile they might still have inventory from that brand in stock for which they still need to sell.
