OneUp Components' Travel-Adjustable Dropper Post - First Ride
I like the idea of shortening the cable at the lever, it makes for an easier set up, and the adjustable travel is brilliant, but who knows about durability, I do not really like the idea that they sell a replacement cartridge! I currently use a Revive post and it is flow less, including the great remote lever.

Garbaruk 10 x 50 Wide-Range 11-Speed Cassette for SRAM XD Drivers - Review
@tadgercat: "1 bike is not a universal standard to make sweeping assumptions about this issue, becasue of this tolerance variation.", 1 bike would beat RC who never even tried the product and makes statements about it ... but is more than 1 bike, Garbaruk 11 speed have been out for quite a while: check MTBR drive train forum, where the agreement is that Shimano works fine up to 48-50 cog.

Garbaruk 10 x 50 Wide-Range 11-Speed Cassette for SRAM XD Drivers - Review
The usual misinformation from PinkBike. The tester never tried Shimano but claims: "Shimano 11-speed derailleurs require Garbaruk's extended cage for 48 and 50-tooth models", which is false. My 1048 with Shimano XTR works perfectly without. And no, Shimano derailleurs are not "reluctant" with cogs bigger than 46. And no, the price does not approach the cost a SRAM eagle XX1 cassette, to which it should be compared. You can buy almost two Garbaruk ($263 + $24/34 cage) at the price on one XX1 ($421)!!! Other than that this is a great product. Works perfectly after 8 months of use. Lighter than eagle XX1 by 40 grams, it demonstrates that you do not need 12 speed on a MTB at all.

Garbaruk 10 x 50 Wide-Range 11-Speed Cassette for SRAM XD Drivers - Review
@andnyleswillriot: And why don't you learn to read instead. The "tester" never tried this with Shimano. Nonetheless the caption in the photo says: "Shimano 11-speed derailleurs require Garbaruk's extended cage for 48 and 50-tooth models", which is false. And what about the comment on the price? And the convenient comparison with the mid-range XG SRAM? This is much cheaper than Eagle! and lighter.

The usual misinformation from PinkBike. The Garbaruks do not require the Garbaruk cage, it is an option. My 1048 with Shimano XTR works perfectly without. And no, Shimano derailleurs are not reluctant with cogs bigger than 46. And no, the price does not approach the cost a SRAM eagle XX1 cassette, to which it should be compared. You can buy almost two Garbaruk ($263 + $24/34 cage) at the price on one XX1 ($421)!!! Other than that this is a great product.

Starling Murmur - Review
Great review! "the geometry of the rear end of the bike (the relationship between saddle, wheel axle and bottom bracket) is the most important factor to me for climbing – not weight, fancy linkage designs, or gram shaving." He seems adept at finding a fine distinction between "weight" and "gram saving", but he does not even realize that that relationship can be altered to your desire simply moving your saddle? Go figure how these people get to write reviews for Pink Bike: by the end of the story he seems to be happy with a flexy bike with misaligned wheels!!!!!!!!

Syntace C33i Straight Carbon Wheelset - Review
One has to laugh: 1580 grams a light weight wheel set!? And just for the sake of precision: does the porky weight includes valves and rim strips or not? Keep the commercials coming!

Should the Derailleur Die? Zerode's Gearbox-Equipped Taniwha - Review
"34lb 4oz weight" ... and even forgetting about the efficiency of the system, it does not shift under power!!?!?!?!??! are they joking??!!?!?!?!?!? And who says that you cannot shift a derailleur while coasting? You can easily do so and the second you restart pedaling you are in the gear you want! This thing belongs on a e-bike! Forget pedaling the monster!!!!!!!!
