Good Ideas Executed Poorly - Opinion
Yes - I have a bike with a shimano side swing XT 2x11. It's the best, smoothest, fastest front derailleur I've ever experienced. And I have a road bike with campy record on it. If Shimano had come out with that derailleur and the carbon chainrings a few years back, I don't think 1x would have been able to get a toe hold. It's just too good. I often have to look down just to confirm it shifted. It's so damn fast and smooth and quiet. I've got a 1x bike, too. I like 1x, but damn that Shimano FD works.

2018 Andes Pacifico Enduro: Preview & Race Day 1
That looks awesome. So by "blind", it means that you don't get any pre-ride on the stage before timed runs?

Shimano Patent Filing Raises Electric Questions
Well, in fairness, I haven't touched my cable actuated XT drive train in 6 months... But I hear you. I'm not a fan of e-bikes, but e-shifting is cool I guess.

When Are New Standards Called For? - Pinkbike Poll
@sospeedy: Exactly. I can order from Jenson or Art's, and the part is on my doorstep within 24 hours - and for $0 shipping. I'd like to go my LBS, but just imagine the wheels they would have to keep in stock in order to match the Jenson/mail order service ... 26", 27.5", 29", boost, non-boost, 135mm.... oh, and the wide array of rim widths to service plus and non-plus tires. And which freehub do you want? It's impossible for an LBS. It used to be we had 26" wheels with 135mm hubs. That was it - so an LBS *could* keep a stock of wheels. I don't think we necessarily want to go back to the days of a single wheel size for everything - but it illustrates the problem that the uncontrolled proliferation of 'standards' has created for the LBS. And you're right, there is no good distributor model to alleviate this. So mildly mechanically competent consumers just order their parts and save a ton of time and some money.

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
I'm actually pretty interested in bamboo bikes! I guess, though, it's more suited to pavement type bikes than mountain bikes.

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
At the end of the day, for me, while aluminum may not be "clean", I think it's clean-'er' than carbon. And since I am both cheap and lazy, I'll take aluminum since it's obviously less expensive to the consumer to purchase, and as a bike, generally more tolerant to abuse/negligence than carbon.
