The Tech Behind the New Atherton Bikes
My 1990 Raleigh Technium is still going strong as my daily commuter. Hasn't seen much off-road in the last decade, but still gets out there once every couple of years, rigid forks and all. I don't think it's so much about 'evolution' of the bonding process, more QC. These guys have "complete confidence" :) "The second thing is when you inject the adhesive, you can witness the adhesive being injected around the circumference of the joints, so you have complete confidence that the adhesive is in the joint. If you haven’t got adhesive in the joint, then you won't have a strong joint. The third reason is that, essentially, these things assemble themselves. You have the jig there to ensure precise positioning, but once the adhesive is in the joint the lugs and the carbon tubes slide together, it's just a case of making sure it is accurate and fully in the joint. It's very easy to assemble"

Field Test: Giant Trance Advanced 29
@JohanG: What's wrong with the pivots and hardware? Carbon rockers and alloy hardware with laser-etched torque settings are low budget now? Easy serviceability is a great thing to have, but in my experience the Giants don't particularly need it. In the 7 years I had on my 07 reign 1, and 5 years on my Trance Advanced 1, I've never had to service the bearings (the Reign did go through DU bushes on the shock every year or two). In contrast my buddy has had to replace the bearings nearly every year on his Santa Cruz Tallboy since 2014. Free bearings for life, sure, but that's also days in the shop every year while they get fitted.

Specialized's New Helmets Can Text For Help After a Crash
couch cough, no surprise if you read the article..."If any of this sounds familiar, it's likely because early versions were created under the name ICEdot. Specialized acquired ICEdot in 2017"

Review: Yeti's New SB100
@MikeAzBS: I love how SC owners are always plugging the "free bearings for life" line. Friend of mine is just putting his Tallboy in this week for its fourth set of FREE bearings in under 4 years (they are shot, rear triangle is rattling on the bumps). Meanwhile my Trance is a year older and the original bearings are still perfectly fine...
