Kona Wah Wah II Flat Pedals - Review
@BenPea: I really like the patina of a well-worn alu pedal. I've had my Superstars for going on four years and the wear pattern on all the outer edges is very pretty, certainly nicer than the gouged up mess I reckon plastic versions would be after that long.

Shimano Patent Filing Raises Electric Questions
@conoat: All I could think of reading this is the new Ducati Panigale V4 seems to already have what they're proposing, from the fine people at Ohlins no less.

Fox Launches New Flux Helmet - Bike Connection Winter 2018
Design looks pretty grim and fussy to me. And €50 for a MIPS liner is a ripoff, my Scott Stego cost an extra £20 over the non-MIPS version and that was two years ago.

Thule Velospace 918 Rack - Review
I don't care how careful you are, putting two bikes in a car repeatedly you will end up damaging something, mostly likely a brake disc if you're taking the front wheels off. Not to mention the mess/wear/damage to the car itself, nor the grievous injuries to yourself if you have a crash with a bike or two in the back. I put up with this method for about 18 months before caving and getting a Thule.

Production Privée's Steel-Framed Shan N°5 - Review
I think the 'sales numbers' bit is the issue, these sorts of things can only be scaled so far because the drawbacks outweigh the benefits as far as the 'numbers game' goes. I'm about to step into this arena - buying myself a Stanton soon. At £700 for a bare hardtail frame it's not exactly a bargain. But you can't make everything about budget, particularly with artisan products like these. As for this - I think I'd probably give up my left bollock for one. LOVE it.

Pole Bicycles Announces New CNC-Machined 'Machine' - Press Release
@Gregorysmithj1: What bollocks. There's no evidence at all that carbon frames last longer, because they don't.

Race Face Introduces Carbon Wheel Guarantee
@hamncheez: You're just twisting my words now... I didn't say there's nothing we can do, you said we should disregard the environmental factors of manufacturing mountain bikes because people are burning biomass. All I was saying is that's completely irrelevant, I still care about the eco-credentials of what I'm riding. If you don't care because of a lack of evidence that's fine, but I feel the evidence is actually fairly clear-cut, if not exactly quantifiable.

Race Face Introduces Carbon Wheel Guarantee
@hamncheez: Can't we do both? I can choose Not to buy something on a purely ecological basis, and all the while people are burning wood and building tanks. You can wring your hands and demand unrealistic change in the developing world while we're driving our carbon fibre around, or you can actually, to borrow a stupid quote, 'be the change you want to see'.
