2017 Pinkbike Awards - Apparel and Protection of the Year Nominees
@flowmotiontours: Their QC blows. Maybe it's changed, but a few years ago I saw three helmets off the shelf at an LBS with off center mouthpieces. My knee pads cracked without a crash, and were replaced for warranty. I'm steering clear of Kali in the future.

Eminent Cycles Launches the Haste - First Look
If it's mounted to the rear link, where the axle is, you would end up horrible brake jack. Yes jack, not squat/stiffening. The OG tomac 204s had this setup and were dangerous with it. The homegrowns had it as well and it was a problem there but they had less travel so it was less significant. The OG yeti lawwills had a similar linkage to the one above, but they used a pivot at the front, a pivot at the rear, and an additional pivot that allowed the linkage to "scissor" and neutralize brake forces. http://forums.mtbr.com/attachments/yeti/625227d1310455305-yeti-lawwill-custom-race-frame-need-help-identification-05.jpg Not sure why they used a sliding bushing instead of a scissor link as above, perhaps to avoid a patent, perhaps to save weight.

Magura HC3 Adjustable Brake Lever - Review
Not sure you are right. Looks like the mt trail carbon and mt5 share a similar lever- no tool free reach and no bite point. The mt7 does get bite point, however. I inquired with magura and they said the mt5 was not upgradeable to tool free reach adjust, which is a disappointment.

Magura HC3 Adjustable Brake Lever - Review
My MT5s have been consistent every time. There's much debate as to where the inconsistency in shimano brakes come from. Most of the consensus is that it's the calipers, and the levers are fine. I'm tempted to try a shimano lever on my magura calipers...

Magura HC3 Adjustable Brake Lever - Review
Magura really missed the mark by not making these compatible with their lower end brakesets. For reasons unknown, the HC3 lever is not compatible with brakes like the MT5, which lack knobs to adjust lever reach. If you're going to spend more for the higher end version of the brakes, are you going to want to spend even more for new levers? Give those of us with the cheapy brakes the option to upgrade to fancy levers so we can take the brakes we own further.

Magura MT Trail Brakes – Review
My first email to magura went into their spam bin. They eventually found it and replied however. The US distributor has been fantastic.

Vee Tire Trail Taker – Review
Braking traction- good Forward traction- not good cornering traction? Those knobs are waaaaaay down on the shoulder.
