Shimano Introduces New 'Linkglide' Drivetrain Technology with Bold Longevity Claims
These cassettes seem very heavy. But shimano cassettes are always heavy. Best toughest 1x setup I’ve found is the 10 speed Saint derailleur coupled with One-up’s Radr cage ( discontinued of course) and a 10 speed Garabunk cassette. 11-42 using Hope jockey wheels. Absolutely bomb proof. I arrived at this option after a pile a literal pile of broken derailleurs. Saint stuff holds up.

Tested: Does a Lockout Actually Make Climbing Faster?
@MB3: Mendon cycle smith does all the lefty and headshok service. His prices are totally reasonable and he does a great job. I’m about to restore my old F700. He’s rebuilt the 80mm headshok for me and he rebuilds my lefty Max 140mm for me every year. New bikes have their advantages to be sure (I have those too) but the older bikes are honestly a blast to ride. Just like an old MG or Triumph is a blast to drive. Nope they aren’t a McLaren but still so much fun. Honestly I’ve yet to find any telescoping fork that tracks as solidly as an old Headshok or Lefty.

Tested: Does a Lockout Actually Make Climbing Faster?
@MB3: Yep, the dial lockout right in front of you was the best. The push button lockout on the Lefty just as good.

Engin Cycles Reveal Their New Seat Clamps and Tease a Future Project
Engin Cycles is a local to me here in the Philly area. They’re based out of Wissahickon Cycles in the Chestnut Hill section of Philly. Drew is an absolute master craftsman. If you’ve ever seen his stuff in person you’ll get why it costs so much. The guy is incredibly talented and a passionate bike builder. No negative comments deserved when it comes to Engin cycles. 100% perfect. 100% hand made in Philadelphia!

Opinion: eMTBs are Going to Change Mountain Bike Racing Forever
Don’t know if this comment will get downvotes or upvotes, but here’s my take. I’m 56 yo and didn’t start seriously getting into the sport until I was 47. Considering the learning curve of learning how to ride I’ve done my fair share of suffering. Broken ribs, permanently separated AC shoulder joint, Pneumathorax, and most recently complete and double rotator cuff tear on my right shoulder. (I’m making a full recovery) I have zero intention of buying an Ebike. I’m willing to put in the work pain and suffering that comes with the sport. My guess is the Ebikes to the general riding public will cause way more injuries to beginning riders. For it to be valid Ebike racing needs to be harder than enduro to reflect the enhanced capabilities in the power output dept. it needs very very technical climbs followed by gnarly descents over multiple stages non stop. That’s a test of human and machine. Anything that allows for a decreased level in fitness yet still lets you succeed is nothing more than a sport for cubicle rats.

Josh Bryceland Takes On Land Management Role, Asks Riders to Refrain From Reckless Building
My dog seriously has the best trail manners. He refuses to poop or pee on the trail. He actually will run off into the brush well off the side of the trail, do his business there and then come back and continue his hike. I still go in and pick it up anyway. I didn’t train him to do this. It’s just his thing. Cattle dogs are great trail dogs.
