First Look: Shimano's New XTR is More Than Just 12-Speed
@cyrways: What about the DT Swiss hubs that are licensed to do the same freehub, are they cup and cone as well?

First Look: Shimano's New XTR is More Than Just 12-Speed
Say what? How, exactly, are Shimano brakes disposable? Mine have all held up really well, even in nasty conditions (Pacific Northwest, riding all winter).

Opinion: Moving The Needle
Let's say his geometry really does allow an excellent Ryder to adjust technique and become significantly faster in the turns. The industry may be conservative, but eventually a high level competitor will ask their sponsor to build them a test mule do they can replicate that. From there, it's two race seasons until it becomes the hot new thing.

Review: TRP Slate T4 Brakes
Shimano XT won't give you tons more power and confidence than Deores. Deores are actually remarkably confident brakes. As a fellow Clydesdale - I ended up putting Zee brakes up front and XT out back. I went XT because they're just a little nicer than SLX in terms of adjustments and such, and were still really reasonable, and the Zees are all about raw power where you can actually use it. If your Deore brakes don't fill you with confidence - did you give them a good bleed? Easy to do with the Shimano kit. Also, what size are your rotors? Have you considered upsizing?

Development Story: Cannondale's Wild New Single-Sided, Single-Crown XC Fork
I like that it's different, because hey, variety is the spice of life. Good on them to keep letting their freak flag fly. That said - it's a bit of a pointless exercise if they go through all this expense to develop a fork that imposes significant cost on the rider (maintenance, spare parts, harder to service, worries about future support) while managing to be same weight and stiffness as its competition, with a claimed small increase in small bump compliance as the performance benefit. The reviewer does seem to perceive it as blowing the competition out of the water in that respect - so why bother?

@southoftheborder: And 8 times as annoying when trying to get it serviced...

Pinkbike Poll: What Mountain Bike Event Are You Most Likely to Watch?
I'm impressed by what the riders at Rampage are doing. The level of progression is absolutely insane. But I get bad vibes from the whole worry thing that someone is likely to have a significant, perhaps season ending, or worse, life altering/ending crash. So as much as I admire these riders' skill and guts, I just can't bring myself to watch it.

Rotor R-Hawk Cranks - Review
@fartymarty: Yeah, that's quite the manifesto... ;) Hype aside, the longer pedals work for me, and a lot of people I know. They also don't do anything for a bunch of other people. So I'd say this is one of those to each their own sort of things.
