Slack Randoms: Lift Line Fights, A Bike with Folding Wheels & Chris Froome MTBing
The e-bike guru was funny but would have been more appropriately just been "road bike guru".

Hope Pro 4 110 Boost front hub 28h j-spoke black, new

$80 USD
Bought this brand new hub, changed my mind and decided to build 32 spokes instead of 28. Dropped it on the floor taking it out of the box, and while the marks are tiny and barely even observable, it was enough that I couldn't return it. $80 shipped.

Ask Pinkbike: CushCore vs. Tubes, Fork Setup, Sticky Brake Pistons, & 12-speed Chain Length
@Brave1i1toaster: I ended up moving my Maguras to my DH bike. I liked the brakes but they just had too much residual drag. You could clean up the pistons, exercise them, move them back and it woudl seem fine, but after a ride they'd be back to noticeably dragging on the wheel. Much worse than Shimano or the Hayes I'm on now. Sometimes I would sit there in the shop and free spin the wheel for 5 minutes at a time watching it drag to a stop and wondering if it was noticeable while pedalling. Spoiler alert - the drag all adds up you need to eliminate where you can.

Marzocchi Monster T

$400 USD
2002 Monster T Last ridden in 2014 and it was running great. On the one photo you can see a bit of rub on the crown, normal wear and tear IMO. Steerer tube length is 9.25" $50 shipping - if by some miracle its less than that I'll refund the difference.

First Ride: 2022 Specialized Stumpjumper EVO Alloy - Adaptability Meets Affordability
@boozed: Yes my understanding was the issue was with the EX ratchet which was only a problem on the DT240 hubs, not the 350's. This failure in the test bike is very concerning, but as someone said above, perhaps its an OEM problem, as there has been no buzz about 350 hubs/ratchets failing. I hope not as I just purchased a 350 for my next wheel build. I know I have never had an issue with ratchets in my Roval wheels (DT Swiss "internals") or my DT Swiss hubs.
