Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Replace Your Frame, Headset, & Bottom Bracket Bearings?
Used to go through BBs in no time in the winter. Until switched to a ceramic bb and not had to replace it since. No way can keep the water out so best to make it so it doesn't matter when it does get in. That and marine grease in the hubs and pivots was a god send.

Poll: How Do You Actually Feel About Cable Routing?
As long as its one cable and outer from beginning to end. Any splits and gaps with the bare cable going in and out for sections are nothing but noisy unreliable trouble.

Trek Finds Carbon Frames Produce Nearly 3 Times the CO2 of Alloy in its First Sustainability Report
Yeah but i breath out more carbon huffing and puffing a heavy alloy bike around. Gimme carbon e bike and i wont even so much as pant. Plus thrownin some straining farts of methane in to the equation (which is a much worse green house gas) and carbon e bikes mught be the better option

Day 1 Randoms - Sea Otter 2021
@ryetoast: yeah iv got a one up and its pretty cr@p tbh. its just to soft and flexible. That's running it as close as possible without it rubbing and the chain still gets past it somehow. think the guide and mount is to short and to far back IMHO

Knolly Releases Tyaughton Hardtail in Titanium & Steel
since long top tubes, low standover ,short Cs and wide bars short stem arrived iv found the slack head angle angle fairly redundant . the bikes are just so stable that iv never been close to going otb like i used to regularly on older bikes wuth more travel and slacker head angles but less of the good geo.
