Hope Questions Lack of Parity in Shimano Micro Spline Licensing
I'm just mad because there's something new and it's not exactly how I imagined it would be.

Hope Questions Lack of Parity in Shimano Micro Spline Licensing
You're talking about SRAM, right? Or is your memory crap as well? The only reason SRAM made direct mount rings so early was because their early carbon cranks used the same interface for their spiders. Shimano had a removable spider system years before them, but it never would have worked with 24mm spindles. Hence the new system. Honestly, the Shimano style is much more sound mechanically, as the forces are well distributed over many splines vs few for SRAM. Please reference "Appeal to Tradition", and you'll see why many arguments and complaints in here are so flawed. If you want better things, you'll have to accept that they'll likely be different.

Hope Questions Lack of Parity in Shimano Micro Spline Licensing
Please stop whining about proprietary things. The Shimano HG freehub was that way for a long time, but you wouldn't mention that now. SRAM uses a proprietary freehub that is now open license, so I don't get the distinction. The Hope system would be about as proprietary as one can get. It seems you just like Hope's products, which is fine, but don't spin this like some altruistic preference. It doesn't suck, you just fear change. Or at least some of them. You can ride whatever you want.

Review: DT Swiss F535 One Fork
Looks like there's a couple things it could be. Panolin has several oils in the typical viscosity range for bath oil. I'd probably run Supergliss if I had to service one. There's a couple grades.

Review: DT Swiss F535 One Fork
That's lowers service only at that point. Really, if it's clean, you can wipe it down and reuse the wipers. Maybe squeeze out the oil from foam rings too. Not hard, and if you have a good stand the fork stays on the bike.

Randoms - Bespoked Show 2019
@landscapeben: The only reason you say that is because you don't understand the primary design considerations. It requires so much cable to be pulled(more per shift than Rohloff even) that a trigger needs either a very large spool(= BIG single shifter), or gearing to translate a short lever throw into the correct cable pull. Cinq makes an aftermarket system, but my understanding is you get one shift at a time and a lever on BOTH sides. It also includes a different shifter spool attached at the gearbox. All of these solutions are expensive, and a shifter that looks modern would be even more so.

X-Fusion Shox Announces H3C Shock & Coil Spring System
That is my first thought as well. It's very inconsistent which ones they've had available, and distributors don't stock those parts. Having a local human contact(lbs/ibd) is important here. Fox really is the best for this, since you actually can buy internal shock parts. Last time I looked, you couldn't get any internal parts for newer Charger dampers.

Red Bull Denied Drink Exclusivity on the Podium and Hot Seat in Maribor
Yeah, why is this even on the table for discussion? It's insane that in a HUMAN-powered sport, there's not a decent look at the health and nutrition of riders first. They already have their logos all over the rider's gear.

I can use a tape measure, but this time I'll use a ruler.
