6 Clip-In Trail Pedals Ridden & Rated
@Jesse221: I found the 12's for $160 at Merlin cycles. Must've been a mistake :) They are amazing; the spring tension adjustment is key-crank the tension up a bit and I'm in there solid. Zero blowouts in 5 months of hard riding. My knees like the TIme style of float, and the are the only pedals I don't blow out of in the throes of panic moves. Likely due to the ability to move my feet around a bit. Don't get me started on Crank Bros, even though they feel about the same (maybe a little more vague). They left me stranded at least twice, the most memorable being at the exact top of Mr. toads in Tahoe, after riding for two hours to get there. Still bitter about that one.

Review: Bontrager's Updated XR3 is a Surprisingly Versatile XC Tire
Been running an 2.4 XR 4 up front for a year, love it - grippy and more importantly totally predictable. Put the DHR in back, where I could use the intermediate zone driftiness that tried to kill me when it was on the front to my advantage. But it's slow as hell uphill, so I think an XR3 is going on the back next. One ride now on a new 2.5 XR 4 up front. Doesn't seem like 1 step up in size should be such a game changer, but it is. Buttery smooth and so good...

Can You Guess These 21 Tires By Their Tread Patterns Alone? - Sea Otter 2019
My experience too. Didn't like the on/off switch, went to a rounder profile.

Round Up: 5 Lubes for Wet Weather Riding
@ecologist: Oil biodegrades pretty well in very small quantities. My ex did her thesis on the biodegradation of diesel spills. Turns out that in her case, the natural bugs in the soil did about as good a job of bioremediation as the designer bugs that we marketed for cleaning up spills. As long as there was oxygen. Basically, it's a source of carbon (carbon=energy) for soil bacteria. Problem is that it is hard for them to break down in large quantities because it's a complex chain. So yeah, I'm skeptical of the "biodegradable" claims in the tiny quantities we're talking about. Oil is biodegradable. http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/science/documents/coe-cde/cooger-crpgee/microbes-eng.pdf

Round Up: 5 Lubes for Wet Weather Riding
Best I've ever tried: Chainsaw oil, thinned with mineral spirits (or turpentine, because it's natural and smells nice) til I'm happy with viscosity. Usually 3-4 parts turp to 1 part oil. Post ride, put it on, give the thinner a sec to dissolve the muck on your chain, wipe it off. Ride 2-3 days. Repeat. Lasts over 200 miles on the road bike too.

The world is a scary place dude. Bad people are everywhere - just look at the news. Better to sit in front of Hannity and enjoy a Bud Lite. You'll be safe there. My wife will be leaving tomorrow to ride to the tip of South America. Solo, though she will undoubtedly group up with folks along the way. Lots of people have tried to discourage her, not of those people have ever done a similar trip. Not a single person who has actually done this trip has told her to be afraid. The folks who have done the trip have universally raved about the people and told her she will have the time of her life. Travel is the greatest way in the world to alleviate fear of other cultures.

Interview: The Athertons - "If People Want Gee’s Fort William Race Bike, We Can Make it for Them"
@sunnshine: Yup. All my internally routed bikes end up externally routed too. Nothing like easy 10 minute cable/housing swaps to keep the shifting slick.
