Tech Randoms: New Racks, Bars, Shades, & Shoes - Crankworx Whistler 2018
I’ve used my friend’s Northshore and the steel/welds far exceed anything I’ve seen from Yakima. However, with the sales channels and manufacturering expertise (cheaper prices) I imagine they will sell plenty to uninformed consumers.

Staff Rides: Photographer Matt Wragg's Scott Spark
I don’t think anything I was saying was suggesting people shouldn’t buy whatever silly parts they want (I own a fat bike for shits sake). I’m just saying that you can get a great deal on drive-trains which achieve everything you need (ok, DESIRE) by not going with the latest eagle/etc. In fact, a smaller/older cassette may offer some advantages. Also, when you say nobody “needs” to ride mountain bikes, speak for yourself buddy! Ride on and happy trails...

@dontcoast: yes, really. I ride a 32 front and 46 rear but on my other bike I have a 28 front and 42 rear. When time comes to replace the cassette, I’m not compelled to dish out the extra cash on an 50t setup to “increase my range”. Sure if the bike comes with it great. But if you are building new you can spec a great 11 speed setup for much less and drop the front chain ring size. There’s not much pedaling happening on my big descents, regardless of the skill level.

Great point about the drivetrain. Nobody needs 500% range so switch to a smaller front chain ring and call it done.

Cane Creek Announces Trunnion-Mount Versions of DB Air CS & DB Coil CS Shocks
I don't understand the Cane Creek shade. The CCDB Air CS is an amazing shock and mine on my Enduro has been trouble-free after almost 2 years of hard riding, with no servicing (it's going back in the fall). I'd like one for my YT Capra as my Fox Float DPX2 is a complete turd.

Review: Racer's Profile Knee D3O Pads
Same boat. Consider G-Forms. They don't have DH-level protection but fit different sizes very well. For rides that involve pedaling they are much better than nothing.
