First Look: Canyon's Revised Spectral Family Has a Wheel Size For Every Style
I have a Canyon road bike, while their carbon frame manufacturing and parts are all good (the Ultimate CF8 remains the best deal going if you want a solid, no nonsense road bike), i have been very disappointed in the quality of the few stock bearings and small parts on the frame. Primarily, the integrated headset bearings are trash (and a non-standard size) and small bolts all rusted quickly. While these are all relatively cheap, replaceable parts and not a huge deal on a roadbike, It has kept me from wanting to purchase a more complicated FS bike from them (yeah, it's not that hard to replace bearings, but it takes a lot of time which is something I lack and would rather spend riding). Sad since these aren't high cost items, but spending a few extra $$ on them would go a long way in improving the quality and finish of their bikes.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 78 - Modern Geometry Explained
Dark Horse addition to the bus - Vlad Sherryuble for his ability to lay waste to the town at all hours. Also - if Pinkbike puts together something like this with legitimate talent, I'd pay for it. The $ and effort to create something along those lines would be significant and above and beyond what we get today.

First Look: Evil's New Loophole Wheels are USA-Made With "FusionFiber"
After cracking/tacoing 3 aluminum rims through this time last season i bit the bullet and bought some WAO unions. Fast forward a year, I haven't touched the wheels, they're true, and i've only become more of hack on my line choices (not sure if that's good or bad, but it's decidedly more fun). For me personally, the lack of downtime/repairs has been worth the money, let alone the potential costs of AL rims. With all of that said, these are overpriced right now. Not sure how they're worth $550 more than the equivalent We Are One set or $300 more than the Santa Cruz Reserves.
