Review: O-Chain's Active Spider Adds Suppleness & Silence
@UtahBrent: following this discussion, I watched the Huck to flat videos from the value field test, and the upper chain span certainly flaps downwards (why do they film from non drive side?). If the chain to make this bow shape can't come from pulling the wheel forward, it'll have to come from pulling the crank backwards. So the ochain might actually do something on a hard tail. Not saying it would, and I'm not spending £300 of my own money to find out, but perhaps someone can!

Enter To Win a Park Tool Work Stand - Pinkbike's Advent Calendar Giveaway
For the typical home mechanic are these really life-changeinly better than the inexpensive generic stands? I get it for shops or maybe serious racers, but my 15 year old Edinburgh bicycle co-op stand still holds my bikes happily - but sticky going up and down, but I'm sure some silicone gear could fix that

First Look: The 2023 Giant Reign Gets More Travel, Adjustments, & Storage
I have a Giant TCR carbon road bike. Got some hairline cracks in the paint around the seat clamp. Maybe to do with me being right on the upper edge of the ML size, so the seat tube is right on the limit line. Warranted the frame without question, got a new model year frame and matching fork. Took ages to arrive (but I carried on riding the old one), but that was during the worst of the "no bikes, no parts" issues of the last couple of years, so they get a pass for that. Would buy again

Enter To Win a Sram GX Eagle AXS Upgrade Kit - Pinkbike's Advent Calendar Giveaway
I don't whine about e-shifting, but I'd never spend my own money on it and I'm thinking of not entering, just the same as if they were offering a 24" wheelset. But then, $633 straight on buysell...

Review: O-Chain's Active Spider Adds Suppleness & Silence
@UtahBrent: I was also thinking that. At least testing it might help understand what is actually doing, or not doing

PMBA Enduro Series launches it's 2023 dates
@Madmanuk: are you suggesting that we never have races? I do a couple of races per year and getting ready to race is one of the things that keeps me motivated to get out and ride (especially over winter). From my experience, the PMBA events are my personal highlight of the year - well organised, great trails, many of which you're not allowed to ride for the rest of the year. I reckon PMBA put back more than a lot of other race organisers into trails. It's fine if you don't like racing, but thousands of us do

Tech Tuesday: Tubeless Tire Setup 101
I know this is all free content, but it's missing a huge pile of pitfalls that could catch out those new to tubeless. Doesn't include tips on how to fit double b*****d tight tyres (looking at you Schwalbe Super Gravity) without breaking levers or trashing your rim tape. Soapy water etc. How often to replace sealant (and how fast different sealants dry out and how your weather affects it). Cleaning dried sealant off the bead before refitting a used tyre, so it actually seals. I generally wouldn't even think about fitting a tyre with the valve core in (and remember that a lezyne pump will remove it for you). I'm sure there are loads more useful things that could and should be in this article

@Madmanuk: have you met Kev? As far as I can tell, he lives in his camper on site all year sorting trails for us to race on. Unless he's hiding it very well, he's not on his way to being a millionaire off the back of entry fees

Well, given that pretty much none of the graythwaite trails exist after all the storms, I think we can guarantee those will be new... (Not sure what will get recycled from grizedale though)

Grizedale and Graythwaite in one race! Wow. Think that's going to need more than 3 Weetabix...
