Review: The Bontrager Rally MIPS Helmet Is The Volvo Wagon Of Helmets
This helmet looks pretty good but I still think MIPS is snake oil... the testing they did made some pretty grave assumptions about the head to helmet interface, the data they released is pretty vague, and the price point is a little bit extreme. If safety is your main concern, I still think the Kali is the way to go...they are more expensive (my interceptor cost around $200) but they are one of the few that have actually put out hard data and plots with actual values. Plus they have a lifetime, free crash replacement program... hard to beat that...

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.
