SRAM Patent Shows Different Electronic Shifting System for e-Bikes
Nicolai eboxx rohloff. Gates belt drive, 14 speed electronic rohloff. Expensive, heavy and draggy, but oh so low maintenance.

Review: Pipedream The Full Moxie
@OllyR: the guy I saw was using a taper roller bearing bb for his. Practically indestructible, 5 year warranty on them (I got one after learning about them, I sold the bike with it on after 3 years and 4 different frames, hands down the best bb I've ever owned, shame they stopped doing them)

Review: Pipedream The Full Moxie
@OllyR: best single pivot bearing I've ever seen was on an older santa cruz (heckler or bullit, can't remember which) and it was just a 24mm axle external bb.

Review: Pipedream The Full Moxie
@OneTrustMan: do you really need a 795mm seat height? 31.3 inches. Cos that's what you'd get with a 420mm seat tube and a 210mm oneup dropper at minimum insertion. When you add crank length, you'd need to have about a 38 inch inseam to ride that.

Ask Pinkbike: Adjusting B-Tension, Cutting Forks, Making a Full-Suspension Rigid, & Quieting Loud Hubs
@ShortJeffsyOwner: I don't know for sure, but it's possibly to do with the fact they were only really ever good for over forked bikes, if you got a modern 160mm bike with a 160mm fork, dropping that to 130 would make the bb way too low. I used them for that exact purpose, hardtails mainly but also a kona bass dj full suss, it meant they had a monster truck mode but could also be dialed back to almost stock for handling purposes if it was actually being used for dirt jumping or street riding.

@ShortJeffsyOwner: well, I have owned multiple, coil u turn, air u turn, dual position air from rockshox and at least 2 generations of talas from fox and they all drop when you drop the travel. There'd be literally zero point in making the air spring more complex if it only did the same as a lockout.

The cups will probably be either pa6 gf30, pa66 gf30 or pc gf15. First two are nylon with glass fibre 30% by weight, the second is polycarbonate with 15% glass fibre. Both are incredibly strong (pretty much every professional grade power tool is made of one of the 3) and in some instances probably better than aluminium.

Review: Enve AM30 Carbon Wheels
@gally-nh: tbf, Ive seen a guy at my local trails with a boardman full suss (not a bad bike, but around 1k new definitely in the 'budget' category) that he's put fox 36 factory and a dpx2 factory, full x01 eagle, guide ultimate brakes, carbon rims and a whole load more goodies on. Guessing he's planning a frame swap at some point, but it does happen.
