Review: Giro Empire VR70 Knit Shoe
notice the lack of shots of the rider wearing these - the only one there is crops the top of the sock. "excuse me, are you wearing two pairs of socks on a summer day?"

Review: Giro Empire VR70 Knit Shoe
ANKLE SOCKS ARE FOR TRIATHLETES. Seriously tho, I would love a pair of these if the silly knit sock thingthang was gone (like the road version) or crew-length. This just looks silly. Imagine them with crew length socks (like 90% of my socks) peeking over the top-even sillier Got some different lacey shoes instead. Nice for trail riding, but for XC/gravel performance i miss the buckles.

Rocky Mountain's Parent Company Changes Name To... Rocky Mountain?
@CaptainSnappy: they could rebrand to "tabernac VTT". Quebecois with attitude.

Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
@speed10: you are right, hyperglide is long in the tooth... This doesn't exclude NX eagle being nice - hyperglide stuff is literally everywhere and not going anywhere except for high end mtb. think of all the bikes out there with blown out drivetrains that will get NX on there, plus lower-end oem. for beginner riders / budget where "more gears = better" (and more range actually maybe is better for them) they'll get 1x 12sp. and they can buy XD freehub or wheelset later if they want. this will be shwoing up on $1200 hardtails soon.

Review: Feedback Sports Team Edition Tool Kit
@YouHadMeAtDrugs: i like paying for good stuff; but if you want me to buy a complete kit, 15-20% of which I don't really care about; you better give me more than $18 incentive. Also, I hope feedback makes the pouch available by itself. I would buy the pouch and a few of their tools a-la-carte in a heartbeat and would be fine paying full price for exactly what I want; rather than getting a pathetic discount on a bunch of extras i don't need.

Cotic Launches SolarisMAX Steel 29er Hardtail
If the copy were all about his life story maybe... In this case he explains the process of coming up with the bike and takes ownership of it, justifies his choices... Also says "we" alot, presumably as in the Cotic team ... Personally upped the appeal for me.
