Carbon Conundrum - Pole Bicycles Ditch Their Plastic Project
@jdsusmc: id like to hear from some vegans on what their carbon footprint is like as well as water usage. Also vegan doesn't mean you have to buy decent food it just has to be a vegetable a lot of vegans aren't buying the good stuff.

Carbon Conundrum - Pole Bicycles Ditch Their Plastic Project
@RimCyclery: sorry but that seems like an ignorant statement cars have been screwing up the planet for about 100 years. Think about all the 50-80s cars and the horrible gas mileage as well a a lack of emition control. The fact that people all think driving is a necessity and a right makes it a pretty big problem.

Cane Creek Helm Fork - Review
@mollow:how are you going to say running lower fork pressure means you are slower? Or that you can't go fast with lower pressures.

August 2017 - Good Month or Bad Month?
@scott-townes: I'd say Ryan is doing pretty well third isn't too bad and he hasn't really been riding mtb that long he was a hero to me as a kid and I always wondered what the slope style world would look like with Ryan and Dave Mirra (r.i.p)

Thomson Update Dropper Post, Bars and Stem - Eurobike 2017
@nvranka: did it ever occur to you that it's more difficult to engineer/machine a longer post if it weren't than everyone would be making 200+ posts. Why do you think the 27.2 is only 75mm. A longer post needs to keep its tolerance and will inheritly be less durable.

Formula Nero DH Fork - First Look
:colorclashing in a normal market maybe but the bike industry figured out a long time ago that once we are willing to buy a1500-2000$ fork they won't make them cheaper they will make a cheaper heavier version with less features.

Unno's Showstopping Carbon DH Bike: First Ride - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@WAKIdesigns: also 11-40 or 42 wasn't enough? You must remember 32 and the anticipation of the first 11-36?

Unno's Showstopping Carbon DH Bike: First Ride - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@WAKIdesigns: Are you kiding I asked about a modern derailure and you bring up one from 2001 and another from 2010 I have a 2008 x 7 that has been through the the ringer and still works and some 2000s xt derailures as well a 9 speed despite its range has a far better cassette life as well as chain life and now they make them with better range. And yes I have tried di2 and it works but my point about my 20 year old derailure is that I don't think a di2 servo motor will last anywhere near as long as a spring and cable system. I'd also like to point out that a clutch is nice in theory but it's impossible for a clutch derailure to last as long as a non clutch they want you to throw your shit out after a few years back in the day my dad and I used to dream of buying ti frames for Xc and steel hardtails for dh and all mountain but back then people bought a frame or fork to last a long long time. The forks weren't so grate but better than my manitou six I think. I'm not talking about smashing it I'm talking about life cycle when moderately cared for. although I bet your 2001 xt will stand up better to a smash it's heavier than a new one I've Seen a lot of twisted xts and xtr's

Unno's Showstopping Carbon DH Bike: First Ride - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@WAKIdesigns: there is a lot to unpack there I talk about bike to bike and the poorer side of things and people just starting and you talk about parts/upgrades that someone who has been at it a while would buy yes parts and bikes have come a long way brakes and suspension especially I remember how much better my dads xtr rim brakes where versus my deore rim brakes back in 98. If your building a bike than its much better buying components parts are cheaper than ever and better but buying a lower end bike has gotten worse and that's bad for the industry. I've been at it a while too I learned trials on a 90 Bridgestone b4 17 in. The bike I got In 2005 had a manitou skarab elite thing was insanely light air adjust compression rebound it had bb5s or bb7s Mavic wheels SRAM 9 or seven can't remember my coworker got a bottom barrel fork with no adjustments,8 speed low end SRAM,shit wheels,square taper, bb and crap brakes he had to upgrade almost everything and almost all bikes in that price were the same.
