First Ride: Canyon Neuron:ONfly - a Lighter 140mm eMTB
It seems you must not have heard of either zip ties or duct tape? I still ride my 1991 Raleigh Technium, relegated for the last 20 years to being my commuter but before that it has seen many a stick-littered trail. Until I did a drop-bar gravel conversion on it a year ago, it still had the Cateye wired sensors on it that I installed in the early 90's, including the cadence sensor on the NDS chainstay. I took the front wheel speed sensor off the fork at the same time. Those flimsy little wires have outlived three full drivetrains plus an extra derailluer, 3 front and 4 rear wheels, and three forks. As for the wire you're talking about here, it's sitting in between the chainstay and the Transmission derailleur, neither of which are budging, so you would be incredibly unlucky to get anything wedged in there.

First Ride: Canyon Neuron:ONfly - a Lighter 140mm eMTB
@jessiemaymorgan: Yep, super common problem with kids bikes too. Set up the air pressure low enough to use the travel and then it's too low to rebound quickly enough due to combination of seal friction and unsprung mass.

What cracking issues? Are you confusing them with Commencal?

First Ride: The 2024 Giant Trance X Advanced
Giant do press fit BBs well, tight manufacturing tolerances on the frames and quality bearings used. I had a 2013 Trance X Advanced, rode it for 8 years in all weather and never had a single issue with the BB, zero replacements and still spun freely and without play the day I sold it to a colleague.

Review: 2024 Orbea Occam LT - Modernly Convenient
@rich-2000: I probably replaced headsets before you were out of nappies, when they were still loose balls and the races would get damaged if the headset was a smidge loose. Last time I’ve needed to replace a headset bearing was more than 15 years ago, on a bike that got put away wet after a ride where it got fully submerged. Even though I ride in all weather, and tend to keep my bikes for 6-8 years, and wash them with a pressure sprayer on the rare occasions I bother, I just don’t have problems with headsets. My current MTB is a 2020 canyon strive with an Acros headset that everyone loves to hate. My commuter still has the FSA Orbit headset I put in it when I swapped from a threaded to threadless fork steerer in 1998. The bearings on my roadie are still fine, bought it in 2008 and rode it through an English winter on salted roads and country lanes that year.

Pinkbike Poll: Center Lock or 6-Bolt Brake Rotor Mounting?
@Zezzy612: and let me guess, you don’t have any hands, so you couldn’t have possibly bent the rotor back away from the fork?

Review: 2024 Orbea Occam LT - Modernly Convenient
Let me express an opinion almost as unpopular as supporting cable tourism. Unless they were broken, why didn't you just leave the brakes that came on the bike? I've been riding since the best MTB brakes were cantis, and even the worst hydraulic brakes on the market today aren't bad enough to be worth getting your knickers in a knot over unless you're racing at elite level. I'm running the widely derided Sram G2, and while I'm sure they're not as nice as the Hayes Dominion, TRP-DHR or even Code RSCs I've ridden on some of my friends bikes, I still find that whenever I'm hitting a limit with braking it's coming from my tires rather than my brakes.
