Comparing Anne Terpstra & Nadine Rieder's Ghost Lector FS Race Bikes - Albstadt XC World Cup 2021
@RonSauce: Your speculation is more real than my firsthand experience? Weird flex but ok.

Comparing Anne Terpstra & Nadine Rieder's Ghost Lector FS Race Bikes - Albstadt XC World Cup 2021
@skilots: It has happened to me! I slipped a pedal on a landing and stuffed my back foot in to the wheel. Broke something ridiculous like 10 spokes. Shit hurt. My buddy had an off and wedged his leg between the fork and front wheel. We had to just rip it out because the tension on the axle made it so we couldn't remove it. He was hobbling around for a couple days. Either of those wrecks coulda been pretty nasty with these wheels.

Spotted (Again): Santa Cruz's New XC Race Bike - Albstadt XC World Cup 2021
Higher TT offers better triangulation and less leverage on the seat tube- lighter frame is possible.

Video: Knolly Announces 2020 Warden
@getsomesy: i didn't say they did. But it doesn't matter. They're one of the few brands that ignored 148 when it was stupid and fashionable, and i admire them fore that.

Video: Knolly Announces 2020 Warden
@getsomesy: Knolly (and pivot) looked at the standards that already existed, and used 2 already existing standards to create something better than what was previously available. It's the best kind of progress, and they absolutely deserve credit for ignoring the wave of Trek's 148 stupidity to push this. This is the sort of iterative innovation that's good for us riders. Chill.

First Look: Taking e*thirteen's New Vario Dropper Post Apart
It's super strange how shitty posts dominate the market. The original dropper is Gravity Dropper. They're absolutely bombproof, and can be overhauled in a hotel room in 30 minutes while drunk. (ask my how i know) They're ugly, unintuitive, and clunky though. It's like the ultimate example of how UI, ergonomics, hype, and salesmanship trumps function.

First Look: Taking e*thirteen's New Vario Dropper Post Apart
i have a trs+ 170 because i saw it as the spiritual successor to the gravity dropper- fully mechanical, easy to rebuild, with some refinement. The brass keys got sloppy quickly, the spring isn't well calibrated to actual use, and the head backs itself off if you don't locktite it down. It's weird that the copy was worse than the 15 year old OG-- It has problems that the original doesnt. I still like it. This post... they're moving to the same office chair hydro cartridge 10 other posts are using, but so far as i see they can't nail the basics like giant, pnw, or brandx have done. So why would anyone buy this over the alternatives?

A Sneak Peek at The New Eminent Onset MT - Pond Beaver 2020
Personally i love seeing a 'dead' linkage design come back to life using modern materials and design expertise. Cool stuff.
