Here's That £300 3D-Printed Titanium Stem You Wanted
I was thinking the same,even check the weight of my 30 mm Newmen E.SL, 88 grams, 89€. 100% agree that stem made no sense,well said!

Opinion: What Are Your Worst Bike Habits?
Falling off my bike from time to time,that´s my worst habit. Getting off your bike at speed is not a good one,way worst than pressure washing your bike at the gas station,or not lube the chain.

8 Race Bikes from the 2022 Pump Track World Championships
@stubs179: I had only test a few times BMX bikes in the pumptrack and it was scary at least...So fast compared to any other bike my brain was saturated with the speed in some points of the track hehehe. It is a shock compared to a DJ regular bike you can see everywhere,I had a Pivot Point and it is like a ship compared to a BMX. My Enduro s4 in the pumptrack is like a Maersk container ship maneuvering to get in the docks hehehe.

Staff Rides: Henry Quinney's Transition Spire
@henryquinney: SRAM cassette and Shimano for the rest! Shimano cassettes are a piece off crap compared to SRAM one´s,I hate the way shimano cassette gets all scratched and lost the black paint in the big sprokects. I have a brake hack: ShiHope brakes,Shimano lever of your choice and Hope RX4 caliper,it would work with a regular E4 caliper but you need to swap the seals. Lovely brake feeling,light to the touch and close to bars with little death travel. 0 problems,it had been flawless for 3 months in my Enduro and almost 6 month in my dirt jump bike.

Propain Pauses its Factory Race Team for 2023
I think for Propain would work very well,their YouTube athletes would sell way easy in an urban series,like more underground,more chill out series than WC circuit. It is not a bad move,if you come early to the series you can have a ton more revenue if your name is there like a serious team.

Review: 2023 Yeti SB160 - The Revised Racer
Looks a little bit dull,those lines and colors made the frame looks old school. Never being a fan of Yeti´s bikes,that rear suspension is not for me.

Radic Performance Announces New Boutique Brakeset from New Zealand
I think they would use a thinner bleed block to set any pad to the same distance to the rotor. I bet pad clearance is not so big than Shimano or Sram calipers,so you can achieve a shorter pull without overfilling the caliper. I had a Hope rx4+ caliper with a Saint lever and it is a very short pull,like 2mm of dead stroke,compared to 1 cm of death travel in regular Shimano or Sram lever. Hope caliper had a less open space for the pads/disc,the back part of the pads are flush with the caliper body,no visible piston out till you hit the brake lever.

First Look: 2023 Scott Genius & Genius ST
One of the old models came with some genius piece of crap rear hanger that keep together the axle as well. That bike only lasted a few weeks,it was from my boss at that time. It broke a few times ruining some guide rides,waste of money and time. Far from a reliable bike you need to do the job. I do not like Scott bikes a bit.
