Pinkbike Editors' (And Friends) Christmas Wish Lists
My wife has been looking at something like the InReach and that sounds like a pretty legit recommendation, so we followed it up... and it's not available here in Europe. System does look good though.

Knolly Bikes Suing Intense for Alleged Patent Infringement
Going by the abstract of the patent, if Intense were more on trend and had SAs steeper than 75 degrees they'd be fine...

A Mountain Biker's Guide to Making Road Riding More Fun
@RonSauce: Yeah, you're right, although I always figured skeletal and muscular development were connected (if you start young). I guess a better way to put it would be that the sport selects for a certain bodyshape and people with slimmer upper bodies are naturally better-suited to road racing.

A Mountain Biker's Guide to Making Road Riding More Fun
I think that's a circular discussion re: bar width, as road pros tend to have narrow shoulders as they don't want to carry the bulk of upper body muscle. What I know for sure is that when I jumped from 44cm to 46cm the handling felt better, and when I recently ended up on a 40cm for a couple of rides the bike's handling felt horrendous - switching it up to 46cm changed how the bike handled.

A Mountain Biker's Guide to Making Road Riding More Fun
Because it amused me, and, as a rule, riding mountains with a single ring builds stronger legs than spinning along (this was nearly a decade ago so I think I was still on 1x9), you’re basically dropping into a whole new sport with good physiology to do well. If it makes you feel any better, I tried it on a fella in a Cannondale Liquigas kit. It turned out he was actually on the Liquigas team and once he’d finished relaxing he smoked me like I was stationery.

Nah, all good - maybe see if there are any cables touching it as they can stop it working properly.
