Intend's New Headset Actually Improves Cockpit Stiffness - Review
Reviewed product called "Stiffmaster Headset", but didn't refer to the axial bearing as a thrust bearing.. For shame.

Review: SRAM Guide Ultimate Brakes
Dear brake reviewers: Power ≠ locking up the wheel. Any brake that can't lock up a wheel is probably unsafe to ride. Locking up the wheel only requires high force between the pads and the rotor, which you can get by stabbing the lever. Power is how fast you can decelerate from a given speed - how quickly you can reduce your speed. When you are riding at a certain speed, you have kinetic energy proportional to your speed. (Actually it's proportional to the square of your speed.) In any case to slow down, your brakes need to turn that energy into heat, and dissipate it: to the air, the brake fluid, the caliper body, your fork leg, etc. Power is a measure of how fast a brake can dissipate that energy. When you exceed the maximum power your brakes can provide, the pads overheat and the braking force on the rotor is reduced. That's fade. So unfortunately it's really hard to discern braking power on the bike.. It's highly dependent on tires, braking surface, and how far back you can get over the bike. While you can feel braking force, you can't feel power, you can only observe it by measuring deceleration.. and your body doesn't know how to do that.
