Ask Pinkbike: Carbon Cranks, Winter Bike Setup, and Slow-Rolling Tires
@maglor: I kept getting mixed search results, of which I think was 2016 models or the non Lt version. Either way, 1X NX or 2x Deore, neither are light.

Ask Pinkbike: Carbon Cranks, Winter Bike Setup, and Slow-Rolling Tires
No kidding. First things first, you're comparing a sub $4k bike to an $8k bike. That Remedy is going to likely weigh 3-4lbs less than the Scott, have better suspension (both dampers and linkage), better wheels and bearings, and it's not a PLUS bike! Second, they are two different bikes, not much different, but ride characteristics between each of those bikes is quite different. The Remedy will be quicker, lighter on it's feet, and responsive. The Scott will have a more planted, stable feeling. RC, if you had done just a bit more research, you would have seen that his bike came with Nobby Nics out of the box. Lately, it seems as if you've just been re-hashing the thought the person has already had, and running on a tangent with that, steering them in a direction that provides little to no benefit. As opposed to providing insightful and knowledgeable advice, maybe enlightening them with something they may not have thought of. You know, what someone is hoping for when seeking expert advice. My personal advice, seek an overhaul, or at least have it inspected for one. Even if your bike is only a year old, lots of wear and tear can happen that can dramatically diminish on trail performance. Have it checked out by a good mech. Make sure ALL of your bearings are in good shape, your drivetrain has life, wheels true, suspension seals fresh and suspension settings set well for you (this is where it really pays to have a good wrench). If all is good there, next step would be to invest in a good wheelset. There is nothing like a light, snappy, stiff wheelset to improve the feel of your bike, and you don't have to spend a lot of money piecing one together either. Also, if you spend the money on a good hubset (despite changing standards) they should last you many, many years. Hope hubs laced to a WTB Asym rim with double butted spokes builds an incredibly stiff wheel with near-perfect triangulation, reasonably light, and won't break the bank. Even better with when built with straight pull hub and spokes. Next step would be shaving weight where it will make the biggest differences: Crankset, cassette, cockpit, etc. The parts spec'd on that bike are not light, and you can make massive savings in weight with a few select parts changed out, especially if you're still on a base level 2x drivetrain.

We've Got Questions: Digging Deep at Enve
One thing I have been noticing as of late, that depending on the device/pc that I'm using, my comment may or may not show. I'm sure why, maybe isp censorship, idk? Sometimes I will still receive notifications that someone has responded to my comment, and when I visit the page, my comment or the comment thread is nowhere to be found. But then I can visit the same page, let's say on my work computer, and I can see my comment. Most times I have seen this happen, my comment has had positive props, so being hidden wasn't the case. While I have been known to partake in a thread or two that was headed downhill quick, most all of them that had issues with this glitch weren't ones to be deleted.

Why is it that when you charge $1k a rim, you can't seem to get the 3 decals placed evenly around the rim? I just knocked out 6 wheels, all with factory black decals, putting on white decals alternating with the factory ones. When the customer picked them up, he noted that ALL of them had poorly set factory decals. Some of them were over a full spoke off! Small details such as that can reflect on over all quality of a product. Just think, would you see a high-end car with the head badge not centered? Or botched stitching on a Louis Vuitton hand-bag? When you charge premium, top-tier pricing in a given market, nothing can be an oversight, especially something as basic as decals.

Caroline Buchanan Injured in Car Crash
@therealtylerdurden: does it still count as two rolls, if the truck was pieced together by 2 trucks that had each been rolled once? ???? No joke though, many of times I thought that tool box in your pathfinder was going to fix the back of my head.
