Ridden & Rated: 12 of the Best 2020 Flat Pedals
To be fair, they missed out absolutely loads of pedals, this could be a review with 30+ products in it, I suppose you have to draw the line somewhere, maybe HT didn't provide any, or didn't get asked, or they though the options chosen were most interesting, who knows.

I suppose they are a 'basic' option compared to the others here and are a very old design (essentially a copy of the HT Nano they were named after but made in-house) they are very cheap though if bought on sale price (which everybody does, as there is a sale every other week) - Got some on my hardtail, they do the job but one has always spun more freely than the other.

Wolf Tooth Announces New Performance Headsets With Black Oxide Bearings
@privateer-wheels: should have said ‘not’ buying a more expensive product..... sorry, long day. Anyway, point stands, it’s not lazy buying something that works, it’s common sense, I’m not ‘offended’ by your language, just pointing out the obvious.

Wolf Tooth Announces New Performance Headsets With Black Oxide Bearings
@privateer-wheels: I’m not sure I would call someone lazy for buying a more expensive product and then having to make extra prep to headtube, spend lots of extra time making sure install is absolutely perfect and the over torque the headset hoping it won’t creak to death when you use it. Sounds like common sense, not laziness.

Wolf Tooth Announces New Performance Headsets With Black Oxide Bearings
CC ditched black oxide bearings I think a few years ago - maybe couldn’t identify a benefit? I would imagine bearing longevity is more to do with headset seal quality, and ball & race material / construction than a coating on the race. WT use enduro bearings and their seal design looks to be one of the best in the business so they will probably be good.

Wolf Tooth Announces New Performance Headsets With Black Oxide Bearings
Someone asked either WT or a different headset manufacturer a while back and I remember the answer being inventory numbers making the product a pain in the ass. Having a look on Works site, 3 angles, say 10 different headsets and 6 headtube lengths, that’s 180 headsets just one each. Imagine trying to sell to dealers etc.... Probably why Works don’t have a big USA reseller and sell direct.

Abbey Bike Tools Announces 3 New Shop Quality Tools
@shameless0tool: You do realise you are arguing about a hammer, right? Who gives a shit if it’s forged or not, most just mash things with one anyway.

Abbey Bike Tools Announces 3 New Shop Quality Tools
@shameless0tool: be honest with yourself, these are niche, luxury goods, they are not intended replacements for run of the mill tools and pricing is likely down to a combination of quality, material cost and economies of scale, how much of this stuff do you think they sell, It has to be expensive and would be if made overseas (maybe not as much I admit but still) Just don’t try to make out to people it’s expensive because Murica. You can buy domestic product at sensible prices, here in the UK in the bike world we have Hope, Works comp, Superstar etc for example.
