Berd Release 1400 Gram Enduro Ready String-Spoke Wheelset
Agreed. I have a full season on my set. I used to spontaneously break 1-4 spokes a year and these have been perfect. Even sliced one of the spokes into a dead stump and had to wrench and twist the whole bike off of it and the spoke was fine. Experience tells me a metal spoke would have definitely bent and had a stress point in it if not breaking entirely. And they ride nice, little bit more quiet and muted. If you can pay the bill they are very nice. I built an enduro wheel set of 450g BTLOS rims, Dt Swiss 350 hubs, 32 berd spokes for about $1500 pre covid prices :) They weigh 1600 with strips and valves and I trust them completely for hard riding.

Staff Rides: Henry Quinney's Transition Spire
Yeah another point in favor of this bike its relatively light for a Transition and for a 170 bike. Transition claims 3450 kg with Fox X2 shock in medium, giving us an approximate bare frame weight of 2950g. This compares favorably with 2850g for a Ransom 910, and 2500g for a Ransom 900, or 3700g (!) for a non s-works Enduro frame.

Review: The 2023 Yeti SB120 is a Comfortable Trail Cruiser
Not only did you mention the frame weight, you mentioned 2 other competitor frame weights as well. So excited that PB is giving us this information when they have it.

Poll: How Do You Actually Feel About Cable Routing?
@wburnes: I followed the link and found the item for sale but I'm not clear on how he made it work with a non-Formula brake caliper. Most calipers have an OEM specific banjo or other swaged fitting on the caliper. In the picture on the ModernBike website it just shows a roll of cable with two of the special ends. Do you splice this in with a quick connect at the front and rear of the brake line ?

Burning Question: Why Are So Many Bike Manufacturers Putting Cables Through the Headset?
Strangely enough, I started reading the comments convinced I hated this trend as well. But now that I've read all the opinions and thought about it, I don' hate it anymore. I don't love it either, but still, I've come a long way.
