Winning Bike Check: Richie Rude's Yeti SB5.5 - EWS Olargues, France 2018
Oneup chainrings work well for me, not dropped a chain yet despite not turning the clutch back on after changing a flat mid-race.

Formula Cura Brakes - Review
@rideformula: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Read the top comment on that article. Did you really just respond to my (correct) assertation that you're wrong with a shitty paid marketing piece that is also wrong?

Diamondback Release 3 - Review
@jeremiahwas: My Spesh's internal cable routing is mint, takes barely any longer to install my dropper and derailleur cables internally than it would externally. Some bikes have shit internal cable routing, that's when it becomes a real pain. If done well, internal routing is no problem.

Formula Cura Brakes - Review
@rideformula: I suppose you do have that, the first MTB-specific hydraulic bicycle brake. The article says otherwise. Cheers. :salute:

Formula Cura Brakes - Review
@ColquhounerHooner: Sure thing. Page 29 of the Shimano catalog for 1975 has the BC-200, a hydraulic disc brake, listed alongside the BC-100, a mechanical disc brake. Link here. http://www.disraeligears.co.uk/Site/A_Complete_Line_of_Shimano_1975_page_29.html Why they didn't catch on then, I don't know. Weight? Reliability? It seems like an idea way ahead of its time, there's no way an old steel frame could deal with the braking forces imparted on it through that sketchy mounting system, and setting them up was probably a right bitch...anyway @paulaston, STOP DRINKING THE FUCKING KOOLAID, AND YOU AREN'T INNOCENT EITHER FORMULA.

April 2018: Good Month or Bad Month?
@ibishreddin: Maybe Bob Dylan? On the real though, it's like everyone's just forgotten what Ye's done, the man is without a doubt the most influential musician of the century so far. You want some great lyrics? Inter century anthems based off inner city tantrums Based off the way we was branded Face it, Jerome get more time than Brandon And at the airport they check all through my bag And tell me that it’s random

AFTER the race??? Smh, race bikes (and cars, really any race vehicle) should be shown off with all their scars after the event.

Randoms: Shoes, Sealant Solutions, and Suspension Squishing - Sea Otter 2018
Seriously? WTF, do y'all have some sort of Freudian fetish for Minions? That looks NOTHING like a DHF. One row of centre knobs are much less square with more ramping, and the side knobs don't have that 90 degree bend that Minions' do. This looks nothing like a Minion.

Quarq's TyreWiz Lets You Check Your Tire Pressure With Your Phone - Sea Otter 2018
@strasznyzbigniew: Yup! Popular for fatbikes, you can shoot a stupid amount of air through the valve with the core pulled and seat tires much more easily. Honestly, schraders should be used on all mtbs for this reason exactly, leave presta for the roadies who a) have tiny tires and b)might actually care about how much their valvestem weighs.

Quarq's TyreWiz Lets You Check Your Tire Pressure With Your Phone - Sea Otter 2018
Mountain bike tires and rims, just like car tires and rims, are never balanced perfectly anyway. Sometimes my valve stem doesn't naturally rotate to the bottom if the wheel's in the truing stand because a section of tire is stupidly heavy for some reason. I promise you won't notice the nonexistent "balance issues" that come with a 10 device.
