Day One Randoms - Sea Otter 2019
Realy interested in that 9 speed drive train. I only want the range of the 11 speed, e close ratios. If this was more durable , I would be looking at it

Video: Race Face Announces Turbine SL Wheels with 'BC XC Grit'
We actually stopped using hope hubs in this neck of the woods as all of the xd drivers on the 2 pro would self destruct at incredible frequency. The bearings are far too small and cause the races to crack in half with big strong riders on the steep climbs we have. Hope pretended there was no problem. I actually bought a shimano driver and cassette so I could keep using an almost brand new wheel set.

Review: MicroSHIFT's New $125 Advent Drivetrain
@danielsapp: great article! I notice you talk about taking a tooth out on your x01. What a pain, I have done this twice with x01 and have ended up having to buy yet another overpriced cassette. Back in the day I used to run a "winter" bike when I was pretending to be a racer. I could see buying this groupo for that reason. I hate the price of the sram stuff; I go through a drivetrain in entirety per year. Before you comment on how your's has lasted 25 years-I don't care! I am a 6'2" , 200lb former grass roots racer who puts big miles on from rides on the steeps of BC year round.

Scottish Council Concerned by Mountain Bikers "Stripping Off"
Kinda reminds me of Vancouver's north shore back in the 90s, before they built the parking lot at fromme. I used to feel sorry for the home owner who had bought their house only to get invaded as the sport took off. The view certainly changed,and you could see a full moon most of the time. I guess you wouldn't have to worry about watering your shrubs in the Summer. We were kinda prickish

First Look: Trust Performance's $2,700 Carbon Fiber Linkage Fork
I have to admit I am interested (when the price comes down to earth) just for the possibility that the damned thing wouldn't creak like an old wooden ship after a couple of weeks!

Ridden & Rated: 4 Trail Bikes Under $3,000
@Three6ty: You have to budget buying a proper cassette for that bike though. The E thirteen is pretty nasty as it wears out incredibly fast in the first 3 gears (I killed mine in 6 weeks of normal use). Best just to buy a sram gx cassette right off and just be stuck with a shimano/sram mixed drivetrain. Then you are only worried about the E thirteen rear hub that has super fast bearing wear.

Is This Wheelie Cheat Device the Best or Worst Idea Ever?
I did something sorta like this back in 2003, when I was at engineering school. We used the predecessors of the same stuff to read what a bike was doing in order to mess with the compression damping of the rear shock. Going uphill and smooth gets lots of compression(near lockout), going downhill and rough (small hits) backs the compression way off. Way easier to do it nowadays with things coming on evaluation boards with outputs to servo. We had to reverse engineer a servo from a remote control car to see what the input was in order to scab one together. This was also pre-iphone era, and to get the accelerometers we had to prove that we weren't trying to make a missile control device. Won a bunch of awards for it. Have a laugh at me from 15 years ago! a href="http://www.ece.uvic.ca/~elec499/2003b/group11/">
