First Look: ENVE's New, Adjustable-Geometry Rigid Fork
It would be a pretty fork if it weren't for those water bottle cage bolts on the legs. Why does nobody make a rigid boost fork other than Carver and the cheaper chinese Alibaba? I know Niner does, but it too has those aweful bottle cage bolts as well...

How Has COVID-19 Impacted Bike Retail in North America & Beyond?
We've gotten busier....just in a different way. It's all in how you positioned yourself in the market. We've always had a mobile repair component to the business, it's how we started out and grew to needing a storefront in less than 6 months. Then it kinda became a novelty for awhile only being utilized by a few. After mid-march when people were told to stay at home, it has been RIDICULOUS the amount of service that has come from the mobile piece. We've pretty much shut down to appointment only and are doing MORE business but ALSO having more free time as when there's no appointments, we're doing our own thing rather than being chained to the shop. And moving forward, we're probably going to stay tat way....

Cane Creek Announces 165mm eeWings, eeWings Raven & Color Anodized Preloaders
@thegoodflow: Isis Middleburns...they don't make Trialtech SL cranks in Square taper. I also mentioned I used the same bottom bracket, so that should have indicated they were isis. And yes, I mentioned the Q Factor was the same. "Do this with any bike" I did it on the same bike with two different cranks so it's clearly a difference between the two cranks..... Did you not see the part where I said "it's not the frame doing ALL the flexing"? But do you...

Cane Creek Announces 165mm eeWings, eeWings Raven & Color Anodized Preloaders
@thegoodflow: It's fairly arbitrary, and definitely not a complete picture, but it definitely tells you how much it flexes. I used to think it was my frame twisting, but after I swapped from Middleburns to Trialtech SL cranks, my cranks stopped hitting my chainstay and slave cylinders under heavy pedaling. So if all things are the same (frame, BB) and the only thing that changed was the crank arms, it's not the frame doing ALL the flexing.

@bogey: Interesting note about the XTR. I always thought the XTR cranks had a bit of flex in them, but I never did anything to see. I currently have the 9100 on my Moots and just tried the deflection you mentioned and can't get it to budge more than a mm, maybe 2....they must've fixed it. I wonder what it was.

Anybody else ever see these on a titanium bike? The cranks themselves are so pretty, but when on a Ti bike, it's like there's just too much ti going on...which is something else I never thought I'd hear myself say lol. The black though....that changes things....breaks up the colors a bit (on a Ti bike)but still keeps the nice lines....

Senior Engineering Taken to the Trails: Home Built Hardtail
If only all engineers took this approach. In the corporate world, it's not done mostly due to cost/time. I wish it were normal though, maybe then working on cars wouldn't become a pain in the ass sometimes with the "why the fuck did that get engineered that way?" wouldn't be happening when wrenching on the car... Personally, unless welding was a primary objective, I would have left that part to the experts. It would leave a smidge of doubt as to the true durability if the welds aren't proper. I tried to do this in grad school (materials major) but with a carbon frame. I was shot down due to costs, lol. Pretty sweet though.

Moots' Surprising New Womble Titanium Hardtail - Pond Beaver 2020
The people complaining about price on this bike are the same people who say "Why would I buy a Ferrari for $150K when I could buy a Honda Civic for $4k, spend $20K on it and be just as fast?" You know why? Because you're still in a fucking teenager's piece of shit, regardless of how much money you throw at it. It's the same reason nobody buys a Huffy then puts a Lyrik with XX1 AXS on it. Because it's still a fucking piece of shit. Until you've ridden or owned a Moots...or any really NICE titanium frame for that matter (Lynskey's don't count lol)..ignorance is bliss.

Video: Remy Metailler Nose Manuals Down Squamish's Longest Slab
I've never been there....but if it looks steep on video, that is probably steep as hell in real life...that looks scary AF.
