A day without riding is like a day stuck in bed with your bathrobe on.

Fox Release 200mm Drop Transfer Seatpost
5 years of riding the external cable 125 transfer has been great. No problems in the cold and has never been serviced. Less than one year or riding the internal 150 (black stanchion) has led to stuck post when the temp is below 50ish degrees F. Also leaking out of the lip seal recently. Minnesota has seen some extreme temp swings this month

Ultimate Bike Check: Cam McCaul's Trek Remedy
It works and it is overpriced. I'll never buy another one, but I've been running one for a long time. It should be 20 bucks.

Yeti SB5 Turq - Review
@WAKIdesigns: Hopes are good. I'm not a crossfit vegan but I am friends with some yoga teachers (who love cheese) who cover their crossfit coworker's (who love meat) schedules sometimes. The only time a hope brake failed for me was when i crashed and twisted my bars around enough to pull the hose out of the lever assembly. I still had the rear brake so i rode out (with a cracked rib). At first I thought the bleed process was crude because you are supposed to overfill and spill it, then i bled hayes primes (with the avid style special bleed fitting) and lost fluid anyway when you can't screw in the bleed fitting screw fast enough (so you overfill to compensate). My favorite part of bleeding hopes is the bleed port screw at the piston. You can close it periodically and pump the lever to see what your final feel will be. They could get more elegant and have a dedicated screw in fixture at the caliper, and a reservoir style cup like the shimanos for a "back bleed," but the crude method works fine and you clean it up with alcohol. A few years goes by and you look at your weird hope bleed kit in the garage you made out of $3 worth of medical supply store syringe and tubing, and wonder how long it will be before you crash like that again. The one downside to hopes is the slim pad clearance. They have a great feel and minimal dead space because the pads sit very close to the rotor. True your rotors. Paul morningstar died in 2015 but get his tools on ebay before they are all gone.

Rémy Métailler Signs Two-Year Deal with Cube
@Rubberelli: "Most brands don't even make an XC model, including Santa Cruz." What is a santa cruz highball? An AM hardtail with a 70 degree head angle and a 27.2 seatpost diameter? The new cc frame weighs 2.65 lbs (Medium). They wont sell that many...but they did a redesign of it this year that made it steeper and lighter.

Nerd Alert! Inside the Fox/Trek/Penske Re:Aktiv DRCV shock!
funny that he says the sb-66 gets over-slacked by the corset. I did notice at first that the bike felt different at 30% sag, because i never ran that much sag with the stock float ctd. I had to nose-down the saddle a lot more to get it riding at the stock angle, but i still run my saddle backwards at the max range (and wish the rails had a tiny more length). Lots of newer bikes that have steeper seat tube angles don't pedal as intuitively in my opinion. Also the top tube numbers are deceptive for sizing because the seat is further forward and thus the reach is shorter. If you commute on road bikes year round and get used to your cleats-saddle-crank relations, and started mtb by trying to pedal single speed hardtails fast for a few years, you might feel like I do. I guess if you run your cleats way back to mid-foot it would compensate. The upper body posture you need to climb steep stuff is up to you to learn... not up to the seat tube angle to dump you in to. If you are standing up with the dropper down, then it doesn't matter what your angle is....might as well have a seat postion that lets you sit and hammer when you want. I guess the only advantage is less wear on your dropper post stanchions because the bushings aren't scraping it diagonally (as much). Long story short I'm 5'11 and when my sb-66 finally breaks I'll be sad that full suss bikes dont have 72 degree (slacked a little with 30% corset sag) seat tube angles anymore.
