Mountain Biking's Troubled Roots & the Hope in Marin County
"Cali Riding" is mostly a facade... trail sanitation is rampant out there.

Development Story: Cannondale's Wild New Single-Sided, Single-Crown XC Fork
"And one thing that Lefty has done that no other fork has is being excellent in what we call...." .... Being a pain in the ass. You need to take off the caliper. You need a special hub. I'll keep my Fox thank you very much.

Cane Creek's Titanium Enduro Crankset - First Look
@riish: but gas turbines are super high precision machines, with very specific loading conditions, super high tolerances and vib analysis... with 12pt hardware, lockwire, calibrated torque wrenches, and certified operators. Just because they are in a jet engine, doesn't make them the best for every application. In the unlikely event that there is negligence and the bolt applying the axial load gets loose.. the hirth is going to see more damage than a spline with the same condition. In a perfect world, and in most cases, the hirth will be totally fine, and it looks AWESOME... but people goof, I goof, torque wrenches go out of cal, yada, yada... the difference is, that aerospace calibrates their tools, certifies their hardware and parts and suppliers, and takes their fastener retentions seriously... If I am spending 1k on a crankset, I'd want splines to mitigate that risk.

Cane Creek's Titanium Enduro Crankset - First Look
First thing I thought... "Really, a hirth joint? No splines?" Hirths are strong, but they are complicated and more expensive to make than splines. In the unlikely event that there is some sort of negligence and the bolt applying the axial load backs out, there would likely be way more damage done to the hirth than to the splines.

Cane Creek's Titanium Enduro Crankset - First Look
I think threading anything, to anything, with mud, dirt, and sand involved lead to poor results.

Fox's New 36 Float GRIP2 Fork - First Ride
@mm732: I have heard mixed reviews on the MRP... positive to start, but way too many nightmare stories for me to buy one.

Fox's New 36 Float GRIP2 Fork - First Ride
At least a few of Fox's terms actually mean something... Honing is a manufacturing process that produces extremely tight tolerances and really good surface finishes. High resolution adjusters mean just that, high resolution (small clicks = adult adjusters). Kashima is a proprietary surface process that resists wear, they have to call it "Kashima" because they don't own the name, from google: "Kashima Coat is a proprietary hard anodizing processing that Miyaki Company of Japan has invented, lubricating molybdenum disulfide deposited via electrical induction into the billions of micro-pores on the surface of hard-anodized aluminum for better lubrication and less abrasion and wear."
