Randoms From the VR Taipei Cycle Show 2020
@mammal: FWIW, I agree that the Shimano pad contact adjust doesn't do jack. Through multiple pairs that I have owned. The Codes were the only brakes that had a functional pad contact for me unless you go back to my mechanical BB5's (Hope might too, but never ran a set). I switched to Magura last year in hope that the pad contact (BAT) adjust would mimic the functionality of Sram's, but theirs is more useless than a screen door on a submarine. So for me, this would be a viable product. I'd enjoy pad contact adjustment back in my brakes. I find also that you can utilize all the pad material instead of chucking it in the garbage at the point it feels like crap (yet there is still material left). Sure you could re-bleed when the pads get low and get some extra fluid in there, but who's gonna do that...

@davec113: Yeah I still have the F1.5 stem on my DJ, it's doing ok but I have the bolts way overtorqued and I'm sure that the steertube has some mini impressions in it at this point. I agree though, the design functionality is subpar for clamping. @fracasnoxteam, it has nothing to do at all with forearm strength. It's purely a poor design for clamping load.

Nice looking stem. Locking system is exactly like the Twenty6 F1.2 and F1.5 stems from years ago. It's a unique concept, but you really had to crank down on the bolts hard so it wouldn't twist vs the pinch clamp on every other stem

First Look: ShockTune is a Free Suspension Setup App
@southoftheborder: The problem with any type of interface that is "shaped" to prevent clocking issues is there needs to be fabrication tolerances between the "shape" and the crown and the axle, then between the "shape" and the stem "interface". Tolerances that allow a very minimal slip fit. Conventional processes can yield tight tolerances, but there will be a stack up of those which will eventually be magnified at the end of the bars. Moral of the story: There will be some amount of play no matter how you look at it, and that will translate to the end of the bars, and the stem won't be aligned correctly. And if that alignment is off on the steertube to the axle, there'd be no way of re-aligning short of pressing the steer tube out and back in again

@getsomesy: Bike going the opposite way that I want it to go on Goat's. Sounds like every run I do on that damn trail...

First Look: ShockTune is a Free Suspension Setup App
@nwmlarge: Disagreeing with you on this. It would not be labor intensive at all. I work with lasers and laser marking on the daily, and have designed laser tooling just to do this. A simple adjustable adjustable jig is all you need. Could even be a really small laser, low power. You're only using laser ablation on the surface layer. Set it in the jig, push the go button, would take less than 15 seconds to make the appropriate mark.

Dangit! I got excited when I thought this was a clever way to align my bars straight since I still don't see fork mfg's etching a centerline into the steer tube....

Round Up: 9 Whistler Mountain Bike Park Opening Weekend Videos
@hypa: Yeah I went OTB directly IN that gut when I was slightly off line. It flopped me down on the ground onto a rock that's off the left (hence the line down the pinch rolling out to riders right a bit). I did some weird parkour move rolling out of it, but crushed my lower back. Wrist started hurting later but rode rest of the season. After season was over, went to get my wrist checked out, and had torn one of the main ligaments in my wrist in half. They humpty dumpty'd it together with pins and stitches. Took me a bit into this last season to hit it but we're all good now. Just definitely humbling when you hit something successfully a ton then puts you back in your place haha.

Ahh, that In Deep photo is awesome. Probably hit that pinch in double digits, then it bit back a couple seasons ago and landed me in surgery. We're in a love-hate relationship now.
