Field Trip: Calibre's $1,400 Bossnut - The Boss of Low Cost
@mikelevy: Just as fun may be to do a build on a budget competition. Where would you spend the $$? Where to spend for new vs. used, etc. Might help answer some of these questions on the low-end component choices too.

Field Trip: Calibre's $1,400 Bossnut - The Boss of Low Cost
For budget bikes, you could almost argue an advantage to non-boost is availability of nice wheelsets at a good price as people upgrade their older bikes and sell their spare wheelsets. Kind of like when I built my dirt jumper and found some great hoops for super cheap, because - you know - 26!

Field Trip: Giant's $1,800 Stance 1 - More Traditional Than Trendy
You have to look pretty closely at the lower-end Shimano brakes to see that you get. All 3 bikes reviewed so far use calipers that only take resin pads. The MT-500's and MT-400's have 22mm pistons and the lower end versions (like on the Giant) have 21mm. 22mm is the same size as on the SLX and XT 2-piston calipers and in theory should feel similar with the same levers and resin pads. The MT-500 also has the servo-wave levers (single-finger) and is the clear winner of the budget brake bunch. I put a set on my backup bike. Not too different from my XT brakes in feel and power.

Round Up: 5 Interesting New Patents - A Voice Controlled Bike, Electronic Braking, & More
Buell motorcycles stored the oil in the swingarm and fuel in the frame. Maybe we can put the water bladder in the frame and Specialized can market it as the SWATer. I'm filing the patent now...

Field Trip: Vitus' $2,000 Mythique 29 VRX - The Value Trail Bike Defined
It's Leevy, not Lehvy, and apparently it's dropper leever, not dropper lehver. So what does that make a KS Lev?

Props to Sarah Moore for this little piece. The name, the quote, the photo ... brilliant! With the constant bad news and being stuck at home, I haven't laughed this hard in weeks! Bravo!

I think everyone's being a little too hard on Dick.

Looks like a great bike at the right price points! But I couldn't find the top-end build with the glass fiber leaf springs. They could call it the Laufier...
