Throwback Thursday: A Remote Dropper Post from the 80s
As a Downhiller turned (old) and trailrider i can say that the original 1x11 (xx1, xo1) was a huge improvement to my bike and basically to bikedesign in general. The cassette is still the best out there; xd driver is also way easier to handle then the shimano stuff. Directmount, especially the 28 t steel one, was a blessing too. I also own an old short-cage xo1 drivetrain from 2010 (prob.) that thing is art and the best shifting thing i have ever owned. All other sram stuff is garbage (reverb, brakes, my old pike,12 speed GX, 11 Speed NX on my sons bike...just bad)

Race Face's New 12-Speed Steel Chainring is Only $20
I have got an old xo1 crankset with spider, dropping the spider an adding a 28 t steeldirectmount actually saves a few grams.

The Hammerhead 360 is a Vibration Damping Stem
@OldDert: IIf you get a good deal on Vittorias go for them: not heavy ,easy to install, can be run flat and offer a great amount of damping. Running these, i always wonder why someone would want to run a mostly undamped tire. Especially on my hardtail it makes a huge difference; you can also smash as hard as you dare into things without breaking stuff.

34 t-10t on a 29er is plenty -only xc pros need more but i doubt they will run a steel chainring.

The Hammerhead 360 is a Vibration Damping Stem
@OldDert: I am a huge fan of vibration damping stuff and love my spank vibrocore for its shape, but i honestly cant tell the difference to a regular bar vibrationwise. On the other hand my vittoria airliners make a ton of a difference in that regard, even compared to cushcore.

EWS Racer Martha Gill has 2 Bikes Stolen in Van Break In
In recent history I only hear these crazy stories from the UK - the country of bikethieves. On a sidenote: On a national German DH race in the 00 er years to bikethieves were caught by the Dh-crowd while stealing bikes on the campground - that was nasty (to all authorities: I was not there)
