@russthedog: It's been like what for ages? I assumed you were talking about not allowing cameras. They weren't allowed until one or two years ago, and then they were, I really don't understand why they're going back

@russthedog: Until what, two years ago? Or last year? And now they go back on it.

Don't really have an opinion on reducing the number of riders and protected riders, though it would suck for riders who place 61-80. But WTF? No cameras for finals? What a boneheaded move on the part of the UCI, I love watching the POV winning runs.

Poll - How Clean is EWS Racing?
Absolutely people are doping. There are athletes doing PEDs at the highest levels of pretty much every sport. Especially considering that there's no testing in EWS, there's no doubt that people are cheating. When there's money to win, people will cheat. It's a sad fact, but that's just the way it is.

@Scotj009: The shifter's what actually matters with regards to shifting feel. The XTR shifter has longer levers than the XT, resulting in a lighter action. Shimano's exploded views are ass, so I can't actually know for sure, but according their normal website, the XTR shifter runs on bearings, and it doesn't say that the XT shifter does, so I'm gonna make the assumption it uses bushings. Basically, going with an XTR shifter/XT derailleur will feel a lot better than the other way around.

Go XT derailleur and XTR shifter. Or if you really insist on balling hard, XTR both

Novatec Diablo XL Wheelset - First Look
@IluvRIDING: well, if you have round straightpull spokes, you need to grab them with pliers to stop them from turning when you true them, so there's that. Some suuuuuper aggressive bladed spokes fit well into DT Swiss's bladed spoke holder, but most fit super loose. Go jbend, they're an item that your LBS stocks in case one breaks

Park Tool, Lizard Skins, and Orange Seal - Interbike 2017
@atrokz: I take it you've never dealt with a bike that spent most of its life outside being bathed in salt brine...I've had quite a few limit screws get destroyed because they're so damn rusty and a phillips just doesn't fit right and can't put enough torque down. On top of that, phillips interfaces are DESIGNED to cam out after a certain amount of torque, so even on rusted out derailleurs with phillips screws, it still doesn't work.
