Review: SRAM's New Maven Brakes - The Big Brake
Having worked for a much bigger brake manufacturer than SRAM, “modulation” generally refers to a sufficiently low force vs lever displacement curve gradient. It seems that a large part of the biomechanical feedback loop is actually related to (relative) motion - if you pull the lever a specific amount harder, your brain seems to be most comfortable (ie confirms the result of your action best) if the lever physically moves a certain distance. If the lever moves too far (lever feel too soft), you lose confidence that it’ll actually stop hard enough, and even a brake with a sufficiently high ratio of stopping force vs lever force can feel weak. If it doesn’t move far enough (lever feel too firm) it can be perceived as very “on/off” and lacking in precision or control resolution (which is objectively untrue but that’s the perception). Exactly how firm or soft you want the lever to feel is the part that varies according to personal preference.

Orange Bikes Resumes Trading Under Owner Ashley Ball
@jjhobbs: the creditors now have an above zero of being repaid, which is more than if they simply shut their doors…

Agreed. Good on them. Hope to see them make strides with frame improvements too and really get back to being a truly premium manufacturer.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Want Adjustable Frame Stiffness?
@BiNARYBiKE: exactly. Everyone complains about the $10k bikes that have all the latest high end stuff (which gets the attention), instead of just buying the $3k bikes that do exist and don't have cutting edge top-end everything. The options are there, just because an option exists that you aren't personally interested in (like I don't actually care much about entry-level bikes personally), doesn't mean it needs to be excoriated.

Intend Release Limited Edition 'Moto' Fork & Shock Set
@AurexPinkbike: Marzocchi had them in the Shiver in 2001. They'd been used in moto forks for a decade earlier. These are nothing new.
