First Look: KS Genesys Integrated Dropper Seatpost
The best feature is that you now only have 10 mm of height adjustment: better be sure where you cut it!!!!!!!

Comparison Test: Are Wider Rims Better? We Try 4 Different Widths
@mattwragg: I agree with powpowpow without a blind test this has the potential of being very biased. Notice how in your conclusions you recommend 30+ rims even if you have no evidence that 35 mm is better than 30. Similar bias seems to show up in the analysis of the timed runs. You exclude data points after looking at the results instead of relying on an independent analysis. And cherry pick the largest observed difference to make your point, something a statistician would never do ... Having said that, great effort!

Review: Race Face’s New Cinch Oval Ring
I have been using Garbaruk oval for 3 years on XTR derailleur on a Race Face Next SL with no problem. Not sure what makes the reviewer claim that the Race Face "is the best so far" (as if he had actually tested all ovals on the market!) but the Garbaruk is a very good product and costs a bit less.

First Impressions: Riding Shimano's New XTR Components
Nice review! 1x done right! 510% range, perfect gear spacing, flow less shifting under power, and silent hub ... what more would one want! Oh, yes: four pistons XTR brake!

Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
@ronufoh: not many ways to compute it ... it is the ratio of largest to smallest cog ... But the point is that if 420-450% range is all you need, then you REALLY do not need 12 gears (especially when they are so badly spaced). Add another 50-60% range and then an additional gear is nice. Besides the 1051 Shimano introduced two 1045 (450%) cassettes for 2019 with the option of either 12 speeds (for cross-country racing) OR 11 speed. 12 speed 1150 for general use is just silly ...

Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
1150 11 speed cassettes have been on the market for close to two years. The range of a 1150, 454%, is not much larger than the original 11 speed 1042 that has 420%. Both are very far from SRAM 1050, at 500% and Shimano 1051 at 510%.

Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
@WasatchEnduro: Only the SRAM commercial that is going on on this page can think that this particular 12 speed gets you anything in respect to a better spaced 11. I'd take a better spaced eleven speed , e.g. 11-13-15-19-22-26-30-34-39-44-50, any day. You do not need 12 speed with a 11-50, i.e. 454% range ... all you are getting with this cassette is 5 redundant low gears, the corresponding need for extra shifts, and an overdrive. Not to mention that at 615 grams this is heavier than any conceivable dual set up (and offers much worse gearing) ... it is ridiculous.

@Caiokv: Yes, really do the math. The idiotic gaps are: 18% 15% 13% 11% 16% 14% 12% 14% 12% 17% 19% a roller coaster.

@heyyohan: the gaps on this cassette are ridiculous, they are all over the place. Yes do the math, and you get a completely silly: 18% 15% 13% 11% 16% 14% 12% 14% 12% 17% 19%

@mentalhead: you need a new derailleur and a new shifter. All to get some bizarrely spaced 12 speed. Get a Shimano 1146 (ligther) or any of the huge amount of aftermarket 50 and it would cost you less.
