@Stinky-Dee: Crap -I clearly have wet the bed. Actually the new 28.99 handles cannot use torque caps on my testing sample as I drilled the top out and treaded it to install my favorite oneupcomponents EDC tool.

Raked & Rated - 6 MTB Trail Sculpters
@R4Squares: Sorry DUDE - It's actually the head that needs to be expanded by 6 units -based on widened tires -we need to make the trails wider now! Refer to the IMBA manual regular trails - 142 units wide Boost trails - 148 units Super boost trails - 157 units The fear is we may have to abandon trails such as slick rock in UTAH and comfortably numb in BC Canada because they will not meet the new standard.

HOLD ON FOLKS! BEWARE -rumours are that a detailed engineering analysis done by moonlighting SRAM engineers has concluded that the Millennial market has demanded a new handle spec. In the old days handles were either 24 or 30 mm in diameter. Based on shirking hand sizes and the overdevelopment of index fingers it was determined that new handles should be 28.99 mm. The new standard will be called the DUD (definitely useless design) and will make all currently tool heads obsolete. Hold off on buying tools. Rumour is that going forward you will have to buy the complete tool as handles and heads will not be sold separately OEM.

What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
Beware the New Unwanted Standards are now breeding like rabbits. The DUB 28.99999 (rounding by the way is now taught in grade 7...) basically has been created by the PF92 according to SRAM. And how we all love that standard. Nothing like a 10 thousand dollar mountain bike sounding like a Walmart special left in the elements for a year. What was wrong with the BSA? I am waiting for the next move by industry. Perhaps the new axle diameter will inspire the new stiffer 154.49999 rear axle spacing to find that perfect balance of stiffness and alignment to perfect the chain line based on the small increase in chain drag as a result of the new better seals on the DUB. In the last 20 years I have never arrived at a race worried about my BB because I did not check it the day before. Anyways - like another person commented - I was checking my calendar to see if it was April 1.

SRAM's New DUB Cranks and Bottom Brackets - First Look
OMG - JUST WHAT WE NEED ANOTHER STANDARD. PLEASE SOMEONE MAKE A SHIM SO THEY FIT A 30 mm BB - more business for problem solvers or wolf tooth. SRAM has come up with a solution for a problem that to me is not that big of a problem - let's throw out our 400 buck 30 mm or 24 mm spindle cranks -so we can less frequently replace our 30 to 50 dollars bottom brackets? I cannot speak to wetter climates but my XTR BB gets replaced once a year - at a cost of 40 bucks. NO REASON TO RETOOL!

Scott Genius 920 - Review
I have used a scott twin lock on my Tallboy in 2016. In 2017 it was taken off. Just did not use enough to justify. In my opinion, for BC riding the twin loc should be mounted high in the old format with the dropper in the under the bar paddle format. I just use the dropper way more than the twin loc. Way, Way more now that the twin loc is sitting on my tool box.

Humbled: Mike Levy vs Richie Rude in the Gym - Video
I quit lifting to mountain bike 20 years ago. Makes sense. Things change over time. Thanks!!!! I thought it was the Squamish folk trying to look stronger.

Humbled: Mike Levy vs Richie Rude in the Gym - Video
Ok. My big issue is the weights. Where the plates hollow? The deadlift looks like 600 lbs with normal Olympic plates in most gyms? 165 looks like 225. Anyways, I thought Ricky Rude was a power lifter based on the article photo. I think most people don’t not understand the step test. They are nasty just like a vo2 max. Great feature. Keep up the good work.
