When Are New Standards Called For? - Pinkbike Poll
@oogens: I don't remember ever seeing Sram say what their tolerance was on the shaft diameter, only that the nominal shaft diameter was 28.99 mm. But for reference, a +/- 0.01 mm tolerance is really not that absurd in the machining world. I have some interference fit diameters in my job that require a +/- 0.008 mm tolerance, and that is on a diameter with a nominal size of around 500 mm. Achieving that tolerance from a turning process is difficult, but not impossible. When you get into precision grinding machines (which i am sure is what they use to finish their bearing race fit diameters) a +/- 0.01 mm tolerance is easy. I regularly order attribute gauges in that nominal size range with tolerances of +0.005 / -0 mm. I do agree that they should have just called it 29 mm for marketing reasons.

Spengle's One-Piece Carbon Enduro Wheels - First Look
"The challenge is to ensure that we can produce in sufficient volumes to cope with demand..." Something tells me that will not be as challenging as you seem to think.

OneUp Composite Pedals - Review
@BoneDog: My RF Atlas pedals have just hit the 2 year mark. I have replaced the large inner cartridge bearings twice, but both times were after a full day of riding in heavy rain. FWIW, I also had to service/replace almost every bearing on the bike after those rainy rides. After a quick bearing swap, they still ride good as new. Though I am STILL not sure why the copy for the FR Atlas pedals all say they have a grease port... I have taken mine completely apart and see no way to pump grease into the bearings without disassembling them.

With the exception of better standover, the geo is essentially identical to an Intense Tracer with a 1 degree slacker seat tube.

Agreed, looks like a new homeowner's first attempt at caulking a bathtub seam... i.e. that's what my bathtub caulk seam looks like.

Rotec is Back With a 5'' Travel Play Bike - Interbike 2017
@grundletroll: So many people calling eachother out for being wrong... make sure you're talking about the same bike first, there are two in the article. The 4 to 5 inch rear travel category bikes DO need to pedal well... And the first bike shown on the article is a combination of two things 1. Concentric BB, 2. Single pivot. Those two things WHEN COMBINED makes for a bike that is shitty to pedal uphill.
