Review: The Privateer Bikes 141 Is A Little Bike with Big Intentions
@njcbps: it’s not about reach. ETT is still an important measurement. Reach matters for like 10-30% of a pedal powered ride. ETT dictates comfort on the remainder.

Throwback Thursday: Russ Morrell - The Rampage Hardtail Rider
Hah, pretty sure I’ve hit a bunch of those stair cases. Part of me misses my torrent warts and all. Because a hard tail absolutely needs a 150mm ta and 83mm bb to match its 67hta. Reminds me of the time I broke a bike rack with my face after over jumping a 15set… I sure don’t miss waiting for head CTs.

Roval Releases New 1,450 Gram Control Carbon Wheelset
Three things: 1. Weight. Strength for strength carbon rims are about 150gm lighter each. That is a substantial reduction in the most significant weight location on a bike (rotational). 2. Stiffness. As a big guy who generates a lot of torque, there is more lateral stiffness without a harsh ride in good carbon. I no longer rum my frame when sprinting up hill since getting WAO's. 3. Truing. I actually disagree with this point. Perhaps the improved lateral stiffness has some effect, but I'd be willing to bet it has a lot more to do with buying a high end hand built wheelset. I'd be willing to bet many of the folks commenting above are comparing to light alloy system wheels (low spoke count, atypical lacing) or lower quality. Having spent a long time as a tech I've never had an issue with wheels I built going out of true. Equal tension layered on after repeated fatuguing, 3x butted spokes and quality welded rim builds a solid wheel. FWIW ive also never had a wheel I didn't build stay true until getting my we are ones.

DT Swiss Updates 350 Hub & Launches Ratchet Upgrade System - Pond Beaver 2021
@shredddr: dts star ratchet tool is garbage. I've made my own using solid center 18t star ratchet welded to the tip of a deep 1/2" drive socket of appropriate diameter. It's phenomenal. Those lock rings come out like nothing with an 18" flex handle amd the wheel braced against the ground.

Just wait for the new axle standard this will require.

Mountain Biker Stabbed by Hiker After Right of Way Dispute
@tincancharlie: I've always wondered who would come out on top... Someone skilled with a katana or a coastal Griz. Actually seems like a pretty fair fight.

Mountain Biker Stabbed by Hiker After Right of Way Dispute
@RBalicious: Canuck here. I have a knife in my emergency kit because it's useful. Also, a spring blade knife is not really all that scary. Many solid tools come with an open assist. I'm almost sure it wasn't the stiletto from the movies that everyones kind conjures with that description. Lastly, it you're worried about wildlife (particularly away from high use areas in Griz country), bear spray when you're rolling and a 45/70 when you're on foot is the way. Lol, don't bring a knife to a cannon fight.
