4 Steel Bikes from the 2022 Handmade Bicycle Show Australia
So many cool details on the Trinity to just give it single photo. The modular bolt on bottom bracket is pretty clever. To have the ability to swap between a derailleur and gearbox, or perhaps even their front mounted derailleur concept or electric motor sounds great and ticks the sustainability box too.

Field Test: Specialized Stumpjumper EVO Alloy - The Golden Retriever of Bicycles
@GlassGuy: @GlassGuy: Yes, you can weld an aluminum frame, but frames are typically heated treated/tempered post welding. When you weld (melt) the base metal it looses it's temper and the heat affected zone will have different properties from the rest of the treated frame causing a stress riser (ei: the most likely part of the frame to crack). You might get lucky and never have an issue, but if that part of the frame cracked, it's likely because it was at least during the incident when it cracked, the highest stress area of the frame. Now you've also made it the weakest part of the frame, so yeah welding an aluminum frame definitely is not advised.

Cane Creek Announces Trunnion Mount Fitment and New CS Lever with Integrated Tool for DB IL
I'll agree with you there. Fortunately the 2 knobs without detents on my DB coil only have 2 revolutions of adjustment.

Field Test Review: 2022 Trek Top Fuel - Same Name, Different Bike
@juansevo: Car guys would know the Mercedes suffers much worse depreciation and will end up in the scrap yard long before the Vette as small repairs greatly exceed the value of the car after 10 years. The Corvette will retain its value until it becomes a classic, and if it's written off, that LS might even find it's self swapped into the junkyard Mercedes as some 17 year old kid's budget project.

Online Deals - December 2021
Good to know. That was the only thing I was considering. I've been keeping an eye on Calgary Cycle's clearance deals since scoring a dirt cheap CCDB coil shock their from a past deals of the month post.

Burning Question: 7 Brands That Haven't Released an eMTB Yet
@DHhack: I routinely replace "non serviceable" parts including bushings, ball joints, bearings and U-joints. Not once has the procedure been any different or any more difficult than in older vehicles where the same part was considered replaceable. The common denominator is these are all pressed in parts, which I wouldn't say were ever designed to be easily replaceable. I'll agree the manufacturers have lost the appetite to train and pay techs to perform these overly tedious tasks. It also fits with our disposable culture that revolves around engineered obsolescence.

@boozed: Lots of parts are "unserviceable" according to the dealer, that's not to say the part can't be repaired, it just means the manufacturer has a policy of not doing it, and you usually have to go 3rd party for parts and service. Even bushings in your car suspension are typically "non serviceable" these days. That just means the dealer will only sell you a whole new control arm with the bushings installed because it sells more parts and reduces shop labour (important in the context of warranty repairs). Aftermarket bushings however are easy to come by, and at a fraction of the cost of a control arm from the dealership, and installation is the same as it's always been.
