Syncros Matchbox Tailor HV1.5 Bottle Cage – Review
@qreative-bicycle: On further comment I have about the EDC - is I actually used this tool to mostly build up a bike. I did this because I wanted to see how it works -when you are going to the middle of nowhere you have to have confidence in your tools. You would be surprised how many people buy a multi tool and are not even familiar with it when stuff hits the fan. It seems way nicer that the specialized tool. The chain link toll is a little goofy and the headset tool (aka a cassette tool) works well for the headset. I think it would not try to use this tool with an actual cassette.

Syncros Matchbox Tailor HV1.5 Bottle Cage – Review
Hey, I have the one up EDC - I cannot comment on how the syncros tools works but my favorite thing about the EDC is that it is completely sealed off from the outside with a bottom plug and o-ring top. I would suggest that water and mud on the worst days will get into this tool and well as the specialized SWAT stuff (which I have used) and muck up the tool and rust out the quick links.

12-Speed XTR, Devinci’s Return to DH, and a Santa Cruz eMTB? - Rumors from Eurobike 2017
@allballz: Hey. Wickwerks makes a well reviewed 33 tooth front middle ring. Check out their mountain doubles and triples. Wolftooth makes a 49 tooth rear cog. But that aside - I hear what you are saying -most of use probably would no even know the difference anyways. Once shimano comes out with a 51 then will box come out with a 53 etc... etc...

12-Speed XTR, Devinci’s Return to DH, and a Santa Cruz eMTB? - Rumors from Eurobike 2017
@UtahBikeMike: Exactly. Used an Ethirteen for awhile then decided I actually wanted a setup that did not remind me of 10 year old Deore but the SRAM cassettes are the way to go!

12-Speed XTR, Devinci’s Return to DH, and a Santa Cruz eMTB? - Rumors from Eurobike 2017
Ok -I think this is what would really turn my crank. I cannot stand the SRAM shifter ergonomics. If Shimano comes out with a 12 speed with the same spacing as Eagle maybe we could run an XTR 9100 (making it up) setup with an eagle cassette and an XO driver. Also for us racing folks regardless of what Shimano does - it would be nice to have a few 12 speed cassette ranges - 10-42, 10-46 and 10-51 for different terrain/leisure/racing. I may be dipping into my kids college fund soon. Hopefully the rumor is true.

Stan's Ridiculously Light XC Wheelset and New Wide Rim - Eurobike 2017
@IluvRIDING: Agreed, the difference is that those guys who do the World Cup XC's are 50 lbs lighter than me with twice the DH skill. That's why I need a heavier XC wheel
