Ridden & Rated: 12 of the Best 2020 Flat Pedals
Damn. I destroyed one set of the pedals (outboard bearings fell apart and gouged the inside of the pedal body), got a free replacement set of pedals, and have now killed one of those pedals as well, and was happy to see that they’ve moved to bushings. Hopefully I don’t get the same creaking I’ve been happy with the pedals, because the warranty helped me out, but will be moving to other pedals that hopefully won’t fall apart.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 8 - Do We Need an Even Larger Wheel Size?
@Sularma: you lost me at “boost is obsolete”. Lol. Boost is the go to. Everything is still available in boost. If you’re riding a boost bike, you’re fine. You’ll be able to upgrade it for years to come. There’s no problem. It just means you can’t buy the new pivot or the new knolly you want and bring the wheels with you. But boost is still the de facto standard for almost every brand. Now I’m not saying that will last forever. But for now it’s not a problem.

Interview: Trek's Travis Brown On Experimenting With 32" & 36" Wheels
The main advantage of a larger wheel is rollover, which doesn’t matter much on road. And wheels are very not-aero (spokes cutting through air add a surprising amount of drag). I’m guessing road wheel sizes would actually get smaller, if not for UCI restrictions

Yeah as a 6’4 guy I’ve been intrigued by the thought of larger wheels. But I know that on an xs frame it doesn’t make sense. In my mind, the following would make sense: L-XL xc bike: 3x inch wheels M xc bike: mullet XS-S xc bike: 29er M-XL dh: 29er XS-S dh: 27.5 Or something along those lines. No idea what the actual sweet spot is, and it sure depends on personal preference. But chainstays are getting longer, so the room is there.

First Ride: Cannondale's All-New Scalpel SE
Meh. And the spearfish looks like the old spesh epic. If anything this looks more like the old epic, with the downtube from the spearfish. Doesn’t really look like a direct copy of either though.

First Look: Shimano's New Deore 12-Speed Group & Other 2021 Updates
@j-t-g: you won’t get hyperglide+ though. And believe me, you want hyperglide. It leads to much smoother shifts under power

Spotted: Is This a New Specialized Status?
@Arobb: Fox is still supplying 170mm oem fox 36’s, I believe. So it could be 170, maybe

Now Finished: Ask Us Anything - Jesse Melamed, Remi Gauvin & Andreane Lanthier Nadeau
@superxavi: I think it depends on how much time you have though. If you can only dedicate 10 hours a week to training, then intervals are absolutely the way to go. If you have 40 hours a week, maybe it matters a lot less

Review: Deviate Highlander - There Can Only Be One
@roma258: as a 6’4” person who after 12 years of riding only recently discovered what a bike “fitting” means, and who still doesn’t own a bike that “fits”, I resent this comment.
