First Ride: Fox Releases New Grip X & Grip X2 Dampers
@chrod: This was 100% worth a watch. Laughing so hard and imagining the tricked out goobers on 15k bikes.

Video: Tech Tuesday - A Quickfire Run-Through on Setting Up Tubeless
@vinay: True, very little side wall support. I've torn through tires (EXO+) and the side wall of a Tannus. They do help a little with pinch flats but ultimately its the ease of installation that is a huge selling point. If anyone is in a place with cacti I wonder if the Tannus makes sense?

Photo Story: The Free Radicals Revive Iconic Squamish Trail
It fills my heart with joy to see people dig. No dig no ride because the sport does not exist without digging. If you want a free ticket to ride then go skiing and wait for the snow to fall but if you ride bikes you better dig. Looks like solid work too on a trail I love. Donate, dig, delight in bikes. Much love Squamish crew!

Yeah, good on Fanatik but what information other than number of lab tested cycles does it give us? Number of cycles under consistent load = numbers of cycles under consistent load. Try to extrapolate beyond that and you'll run into issues and probably unfulfilled expectations. Was a comparison to other shocks under the same conditions tested? Real world implications involves a lot of contaminants and possible egress into the shock. Cycling a shock in real world has different velocities, how would this change the outcome? What effect(s) would temperature differences in the shocks environment produce? So many other questions. In the end this type of testing is thinly veiled marketing. Cool marketing, I like to see the tests but with added rigour and controls. Save your hands, have a piston perform the labour, have comparison studies add a simulated trail environments for the test rig. If you want bonus points introduce different vectors and cross loading the shock. Ooooor we all go ride our bikes and find out how the 1000 dollar plus shock does. Cool Sram commercial though.

@zede: I fall victim to the same hubris as Icarus. Maybe it could be better? For instance they could move the bleed port rear facing like the new gen of shimano brakes or add a shimano branles bleeding edge port. Then again, maybe they change it and I loss the availability of my favourite brakes.

@shredddr: Run Saints on all my bikes. Crisp and reliable. They have also been out with a great track, literally world cup track, record for the better part of a decade.

@jomacba: Awkward sentence structure on my part. Sram has an easy bleeding process. "Like Sram" is the example.

If you have ever run saints then you know how good they are. That being said, Shimano, WTF happened to the rest of your line up? It is not ok to the entire range of SLX-XTR plagued with the wandering bite point. Also, when will new Saints come out? Can we have a bleed port on the calliper like those of the Sram code? I know not to add pressure to the system like with a Sram bleed but imagine the ease of a bleed with that simple addition of a bleeding edge port. *silently prays to the bike industry patent gods* Saint power and reliability, ease of bleed without the mess like Sram, non-toxic mineral oil like Shimano. Guys, did we just solve brakes?

If you mention replacing the master cylinder then please have the following: spare parts listed for sale on your website, an exploded diagram and a how to in either manual or video format. Stripping down a brake and removing the master cylinder to then replace the O-rings is not a simple job for many and can go wrong. If your privateers are having issues then imagine the general public.
