Industry Digest: Ellsworth's New Owners, Shimano Shuts Down Fake Website & 2022 Predictions
@carym: This is what baffles me every few years when a new entity buys Ellesworth, what are they actually buying and why? There can’t be much IP worth owning, so it’s just the name and reputation, which is less than worthless

Review: SRAM's New HS2 Rotors - Thicker is Better
@SkipSkovhugger: I have a 2mm thick,160mm Magura rotor from 2003, they've been doing the thick rotor thing for a while. Thick rotors are the jam!

British Columbia Duo Starts Farside Components, Introduces Gorgeous Cyclic Stem
@takeiteasyridehard: forging is cheap at massive scale, and fast, that’s why cheapie stems are generally forged. The raw forging also doesn’t lend itself to making small intricate details, which is why cheap stems are often “pillowy” looking. So you’re correct in that most billet stems are superior to most forged ones, however a forged blank that was then finish machined would be unequivocally better than a pure billet one. Problem is it would be crazy expensive which would mean the cost to forge it would be amortized over very few parts, making it even more horrifyingly expensive.

British Columbia Duo Starts Farside Components, Introduces Gorgeous Cyclic Stem
@diggerandrider: Stems are also one of the components you’re most likely to swap out from whatever can stick on your bike. Makes sense to start with a part people are not only likely to buy, but one that has relatively live risk in the design when trying to get your feet wet in the industry. Stems, pedals, chainrings, that’s the easy stuff, after that complexity skyrockets

Video: Eminent Teases a New eMTB
Honestly the cardboard box is a big step up in terms of styling from their previous bikes.

The Mountain Bike Tech Infiltrating the Tour de France
@krka73: There was never a problem with neutral service when it came to mixing 9/10/11/12 speed drivetrains, Campy vs Shimano vs Sram cassettes or carbon vs alloy specific brake pads, why should there be with disc brakes? I always considered that an especially dumb argument against discs. Neutral support picks what standards they're going to support, carries a 5mm and t25 to loosen the caliper and allow a quick and dirty re-center by pulling the lever if required. Done. The thru axle is on the manufacturers to figure out, my Cane Creek Helm TA works way easier and faster than any QR skewer I've even used. If you as a rider/team choose to stray from their standard, you lose the option for neutral support, that's your problem. If a manufacturer makes too complex of an axle and their rider loses time as a result, maybe they should have done a better job, us end users don't want finicky axles either.

I've had colored tires on my road bike since maybe 2005? Definitely not new

BOS Suspension Announces New Enduro & DH Forks With 39mm Stanchions
Good, I tried a for 40, found it far too stiff, then the 38mm TTX, but it was far to flimsy. Been chasing the Goldilocks fork ever since.

Updated: The Fest Series Parts Ways with Darkfest
Ones does not need a highly publicized series with “core values” in order to ride anonymously. I do it every weekend, never had to put out a pissy statement about Sam Renyolds either. Sounds like they wanted a bigger slice of the media pie, which is fair, so they started their own series in order to have more control. Something went sideways with Darkfest, likely a squabble over who owned the content and who got paid, and here we are.
