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

Four Pint-Sized Components - Eurobike 2017
Man - I am looking at my one up EDC tool and wondering if there was a way to put this thing in series with it on the bottom. Mounting this and a co2 inflator on the bottom of the one up tool would be amazing. Their EDC chain tool is pretty finicky but this looks perfect for tired stressed hands when you chain breaks at the worse time in the middle of no where. As a gear weenie I see this as my next impulse tool purchase................

Stan's Ridiculously Light XC Wheelset and New Wide Rim - Eurobike 2017
@manchvegas: Agreed they would make a good wheel set. Being a "semi sponsored" Canuk my options for good wheels is a little more limited to what the LBS can get unless I want to pay full asking. Stan's in one of my options as a wheel choice. But good point.

Stan's Ridiculously Light XC Wheelset and New Wide Rim - Eurobike 2017
@IluvRIDING: Google the Nimby 50 on Pinkbike -its an XC with DH trails and black diamonds. One hell of a race but really scary for us XC guys.

Stan's Ridiculously Light XC Wheelset and New Wide Rim - Eurobike 2017
I would love to see Stan cone up with a 1400 to 1500 gram wheelset designed for extreme XC and 2.25 to 2.35 tires and of course make it a stallion build for those of use that lift the fork more than weights. I am thinking 24 to 26 mm internal width.

The Grass Finale: XC Course Preview Photo Epic - Val di Sole World Cup 2017
Great photos - I know I am being ANAL - but pea gravel is rounded not angular.
