Ragley Releases 2023 All-Hardtail Lineup
My 2021 Blue Pig frame is awesome. Kudos to the UK frame brands that went long and slack years ago. I do recall when I bought it CRC’s shipping charge to US was like $50 and CRC took care of import duties. I think I paid $350 total for the frame on sale.

Randoms Round 2 - Sea Otter 2023
Google search: “They do develop play. It doesn’t really affect braking but if you rock bike back and forth with brake on there’s noticeable play in it, which is disconcerting. Problem is DT’s adaptor just has lugs that fit through the 6 bolt holes and the whole thing sandwiches together with the disc and a lot of torque to hold it in place, but slightly thinner disc can mean it’s not solid. Also, the ones that use external BB tool for the lockring, the tool snags on the lugs and wears them down.”

First Look: Hope's New Pro 5 Hubs
Just my usual friendly reminder that the Project 321 hubs address all the concerns voiced in this ^^ typical Hope vs DT vs I9 etc discussion. Want high poe and low drag and quiet or loud noise options? Magnets baby. And easy servicing with standard tools.

11 Innovative Products That Inspired Other Brands To Follow
While @mattbeer did a great job on this article, he overlooked the fact that Whyte bicycles was also driving the modern offset 29er fork thing at the same time (or a bit before? ) Transition. I think there’s an old PB review that covers this.

Field Test: 6 Downcountry Bikes Go Up Against The Impossible Climb
We have some local trails that have a lot of set-in-place rocks that form steps (sorta) or chunky sections. On a given day with no rain, riding different bikes up ‘em quickly reveals differences between the various bikes … pedaling position, sagged BB height, rear wheel traction, overall watt efficiency, etc. Seems PB ends up using trails with dirt, mud, loose rocks, and zero repeatability.

First Look: 2023 Scott Genius & Genius ST
Even my piggyback shocks get remarkably hot on our long descents. I’d be interested to see how much hotter they get enclosed in a carbon box.

Tech Week 2023: Leatt Showcase Waterproof Flat Shoes & Winter Monosuit
For me these shoes would get used on snow occasionally, so a reasonably well lugged sole would be great. Guess I’ll have to search for pics that actually show the product.

@Parkershark: the badly chosen name impacts the resale value too, unfortunately.

Project 321 is Under New Ownership, Hub Manufacturing Will Move to Canada
I have 2 wheel sets on 321 hubs, no issues after 3000 miles on my first set. As someone who owns or recently owned most brands of hubs (Chris Kings, Hadley, Hope, DT, RaceFace) the 321s are the best combo of light weight, high POE, low drag, low servicing intervals, and somewhat reasonable price. I hope they can slightly lower the price as they expand capacity

I hadn’t heard of this PDA term, and didn’t know it was controversial: Thanks for writing openly about yourself.
