This. I’ve stopped trusting any enduro Bearing, they just don’t last. I replace them as they fail with non-counterfeit bearings from a trusted vendor like McMaster Carr. Hope hub bearings and Chris king headset Bearings are good quality and have never needed replacement.

Lezyne's CNC Tubeless Drive Pump has a Secret - Pond Beaver
@curendero: I did, moved to Lezyne because other designs broke the valve stem at the base when pumping, couldn’t seal around the valve properly without leaking, or bent the presta valve in use. It is also lighter, more compact, and mounts to the frame better.

@Woody25: Grease is what I would investigate as a way to keep the valve core from removing. Since the threads of the valve core are smaller than the OD of the valve core then the screw on chuck has more leverage to remove the core. Use a dab of grease to reduce the friction. Water might also work.

Lezyne's CNC Tubeless Drive Pump has a Secret - Pond Beaver
@ratedgg13: I completely agree that the valve stem core extraction feature is a possible issue for some user, however I have yet to experience it myself. I think if you listened to what lezyne has to say regarding how to reduce/eliminate the chances of the valve core coming out you would be happy. 1. Tighten down valve core good and tight with a tool. I've had new factory ones under tightened. 2. The Lezyne fitting only needs screwed on enough to seat the O-ring, it does not require much. The torque of your index finger and thumb is enough. For every time I've seen a valve core back out with the lezyne pump I've seen valve stems snapped off by people using compression style chucks. Either one happens maybe once every 2-3 years so pick your poison.

CeramicSpeed's $549 Carbon Derailleur Cage and Pulley Wheels Apparently Save You Watts - Pond Beaver 2020
@WAKIdesigns: The new securing method for dub cranks is a bit concerning. It hasn’t creaked on me yet but it requires a lot of torque. I’m not a fan. It’s likely the Shimano setup is better but I have yet to try out their cranks. Sram stuff, at least in the USA is priced high for what it is. I can’t wait to slowly work in Shimano parts now that their every day rider components line up with what I need.

@ceecee: GX direct mount has been out for quite some time, even before dub so there is that. Shimano is just recently entering the 1x game with a serious effort. Before this, they weren’t competitive and wanted to push their 2x electric shifting groupset. Hopefully they will be on more bikes moving forward. The most recent budget bike field test is a bit telling no?
