Nerding Out: Why You Shouldn't Worry Too Much About Weight
@tdcworm: That's a lot of assumptions.

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.

For a contrary point of view, I believe engineering the frame for the SWAT box adds weight. My estimate is about 200g.

Video: Danny MacAskill and Duncan Shaw Cruising in Wales and Scotland
Your first focus of course is on the amazing skills, but what continues to blow me away is how much power these guys can generate on those hops. From the giant gaps without any momentum, to landing the 8'+ drops, to bunnyhopping an entire picnic table, the explosive power in these guys legs and shoulder/back is incredible.

Road Cycling Digest: Dangerholm's Gravel Bike, A Bamboo Handlebar, Mounting A Jet Engine to A Road Bike & More
@lacuna: yeah I've got a nice road bike (carbon frame , carbon wheels, Ultegra 11spd) with a flat bar and I love it. Been riding and racing 30 years and a drop bar bike feels awful to me. I love the flat bar road bike, I feel totally comfortable bunnyhopping curbs and riding aggressively, drop bars feel insanely squirrely to me. Bonus - passing kitted out roadies who think I'm a joey on a fitness/hybrid bike.

Enduro Bearings' New Maxhit Headset Has a Lifetime Guarantee - Sea Otter 2021
@aks21: I go through 2 DUB BB86 bottom brackets a year riding in the PNW. Granted, the BB86 is a stupid BB that doesn't leave room enough for bearings for anything but a shimano 24mm spindle, but since I've had 2 pairs of XT cranks in there that wouldn't stop creaking even with a bolt together Wheels Mfg BB, I'll put up with it along with the extra 150g of running a GX crank. I dont' think that's an unusual wear rate if you ride in the mud.

Review: RockShox' New Flight Attendant Suspension System
Can't remember the last time I actually had a good looking flight attendant. NTTAWWT, the career just changed since the turn of the century.
