OneUp Announces Carbon Bars, EDC Ready Stem & Lock-On Grips
@freerider11: I have just remembered that when I switched out my Emerald with a tapered steerer to my Onyx with a straight steerer, I had to remove my stash tube completely, and my plugs went up the seatpost with my CO2. So yeah, you can't really run anything but the tool. I will be able to add the plug inserter thingy that threads into the bottom of the tool kit where the stash tube goes, but don't have one just yet. As for rattling, I hadn't noticed so far. As for dirt, has not been an issue at all. It's kinda hard to get dirt up that far it seems.

OneUp Announces Carbon Bars, EDC Ready Stem & Lock-On Grips
@freerider11: Just don't use the bottom plug, and shorten or remove the stash tube and it will fit unless you have a very short steerer.

OneUp Announces Carbon Bars, EDC Ready Stem & Lock-On Grips
Fits on my V10. I cut the very bottom of the storage tube off to give me a little flat disc, then trimmed the tube to a shorter length and then glued the little disc back on so the overal length fits and I still have storage for my plugs. CO2 canister and regulator go up the seatpost with some foam to stop the rattle. Tube strapped to frame with OneUp strap and I’m sorted for just about anything.

Review: Syncros' Hixon SL IC Integrated Carbon Bar & Stem
Nothing wrong with reducing bolts and welds. This is the direction things have gone, for the better. Only issue beyond price I see is lack of options for fore and aft roll; as well as virtual stem length. Otherwise I see this similar to the evolution of the first V10 full of welds and superfluous material when compared to the latest version. However it is rather reminiscent of the titanium Dekerf welded bar/stem combo circa 1997

You can fit a DVO Topaz in there no problem.

Handlebar Width vs Handling - Are Your Bars Too Wide?
Point 2 I think nails it. I asked a pro on that list whether he dropped his bar width down to where it sit now from 800 due to preference/control or if it was for more clearance between trees because he races on tracks that can have narrow clearances. He confirmed it was exactly the latter. Sample size of 1. Well, sample size of 2 if you count the fact that I have not yet cut my bars but sometimes think about it only because of tree clearance and no other reason. What's the ideal width? Maybe do a bench press and measure where your hands are most comfortable for maximum strength?

Interview: Connor Fearon - "I Can Honestly Say That Clips Are Better"
I think it's an admission that it's really hard to switch from what you've done for a decade or more whether it's from flats to clips or vice versa. To retrain yourself is not easy. Sam Hill has had a crack at it on at least one occasion. Bottom line is that you have to ride what you're comfortable on. Other bottom line is that clips have an advantage. What's really the only remarkable thing about this interview is that an Aussie is admitting that to be true. I was one of the few Aussies to use clips for DH racing (punter class), and copped no end of shit for it from all the flat pedal riders for years. Didn't help that the fastest riders at the time were Hill, Rennie, Kovarik and Hannah. But it's pretty clear now that they were not faster because of their pedals, and may well have been very slightly faster if they grew up on clips, but the ship had sailed and they were ultimately fastest on the pedals they were comfortable with. Ride what you like the most and you'll be the fastest version of yourself. :

Video: What Tools Do the EWS Pros Carry?
@mulv1976: I don't believe that is correct. That would be like voiding your car drivetrain warranty for putting a hole in your dash for your phone mounting bracket. Of course if the steerer was to crack it wouldn't be warranty, but the internals have nothing to do with the steerer.
