Wolf Tooth Components Release CAMO BashSpider
I still don't fully understand why the industry quietly discontinued traditional spiders where you could easily replace chainrings. There was a time when 104 mm could be called a 'standard'. (Almost) Any manufacturer's chainring would fit any manufacturer's crankset and you didn't even need to take off the whole crank to replace it. The keen had the option to mount a bash ring while nobody needed to. What was wrong about that? At least there's another option to run a bash ring on a modern crankset now, thanks Wolf Tooth! Good to know that all is not lost when I run out of old cranks sometime.

Good catch! The stickers actually say RockHard: https://flic.kr/p/2aoeG6n

Oh no, the heavy 30 litre backpack crammed with food, photo gear and other stuff is not pictured. You can make it out on this picture: https://flic.kr/p/2j15kYD This is always a compromise. Basically the backpack is at the maximum that I can tolerate and the rest goes on the bike. More cargo on the bike would kill the fun when the riding gets technical.

Bikepacking Check Out: Bags Edition
@pmhobson: the comparison to the rider's weight is basically meaningless. The cargo will swing and rattle in a relatively high frequency since it is much less inert than the rider.

Video: Actofive's Steel & Aluminum High Pivot Trail Bike
The first prototype had a steel rear end. Or at least the chain and seat stays. They were still held together by aluminium parts.

Field Trip: Is Buying a Used Mountain Bike Worth It?
Always check the bearings! Bottom bracket, headset and hubs. If the bike has seen a pressure washer a lot they might seize anytime.

Field Trip: Santa Cruz's $2,899 Hightower Alloy - The Least Expensive 'Tower
So no mention of the dropper's lever which is essentially the same as the one on the Vitus just with a RF logo on it? It seemed to bother you on the Vitus. For the record: I do think ergonomics are highly subjective since I use said lever on two of my bikes and am perfectly fine with it. Sits about in the same position as the gear shifter. Also: nice job on the field trip series overall.
