9 Mountain Bike Grips Ridden & Rated
The best way to get ESIs off, as long as you don't want to reuse them, is to just score them with a knife and tear them off.

First Look: Box One Prime 9 - A Wide Range, 9-Speed Drivetrain
I like the idea of something like this for my freeride bike. I don't need an 11-speed drivetrain on it, I just need something durable and reliable with a low granny gear to winch myself up the hill and a few higher gears for descending. The wider chain on a nine-speed is tougher and deals with sloppy conditions far better than an 11 or 12 speed. I'm not taking the thing on trail rides with lots of undulating terrain, so I don't really need a bunch of close ratios. Although the price of that cassette is a bit much to stomach.

Here's Another Weird Marketing Video - OutBraker's Anti-Lock Brake System
Good point. It’s hard to not come off as a jackass over the internet. I’ not saying that you need to be a master of the stoppie just to mountain bike, I just think that people should learn and understand the fundamentals of safety on the bike, which includes braking. And I do agree that this could be useful for the casual e-bike rider, although one could argue that the rider of such a bike should have a better grasp of braking safety than a beginner on an average bike, due to the ease of speed that an e-bike provides. You would hope that someone driving a car has at least the fundamental skills to do so safely, right? And I do think it’s a bit silly that this thing seems to be marketed towards mountain bikers. @phops:

Here's Another Weird Marketing Video - OutBraker's Anti-Lock Brake System
@phops: The great thing about being a beginner mountain biker, provided you don't have more money than sense, is that you're probably on a low-end bike with low-end brakes. My first mountain bike didn't have nearly enough stopping power to throw me over the handlebars unless I really messed up. I don't think it ever happened. Learning coordination is part of the sport, and some kind of doodad like this would probably hinder skill development to the point of becoming a necessary crutch for the rider. This thing seems like a solution looking for a problem.

If you're constantly crashing because you can't modulate your brakes properly, you just need to get better. Improving your own skills should always be your first step before throwing money at a problem. Besides, if you can't lock up your brakes, how can you do all kinds of totally tubular skids and stoppies!?

Review: Stan's Flow EX3 Alloy Wheels
Yeah my axle snapped in July after 7 months, and the freehub bearings had to be replaced for the third time since I bought them in January. All this happened while I was on vacation. They overnighted me a replacement freehub and axle. The rims (flow mk3) have been super solid, but the hubs are awful. They're typically really good with getting warranty replacements, but I'm probably going to get a new rear wheel with some other hub that's less terrible.
