11 Riding Glasses Ridden & Rated
Got the Ryders Roam Fyre on a deal last year (still expensive). Fourth or fifth ride, my toddler said goodnight and yanked them off my face and dropped them on the driveway. Nice scratch right in the middle of the lens. Rotted.

OneUp Components Announces New Chainrings, Thru-Axles, & Large-Diameter Dropper Post
@eldsvada: Yup--I'm pretty sure later hexlox purchases can be keyed to the same code, so I'll probably have to go through them. But it was great to just get them with the axles.

Me too! I bought a RADr cage for my 2x10 drivetrain back in the day and everything I’ve bought since has been spot on—and their service is killer. One note on the Axle—there’s a company called the Robert Axle Project that makes awesome axles, but also sells something called Hexlox security keys. They are little magnetized bits that fit in your Allen key hole and can only be removed by a small magnet key. INCREDIBLE—you can also key different ones together to the same lock! I’ve got both my wheels locked, and will probably get my dropper and topcap locked this year—all the quick and easy take-apart bits. Could not more highly recommend that system. Cheers.

Ok not even done yet, but I was absolutely compelled to comment at only :22s in: Awesome bike, check; carefully selected expensive colour-matched accessories like rotors, saddle, pedals, grips, etc, check; extra tube attached to top tube in clever way, check; probably something clever and expensive like EDC tool, check (wild speculation); complete lack of ability to hit a simple jump, check! DENTIST CONFIRMED.

Norco Bicycles Announces Sight VLT 29 eMTB
@pacificnorthwet: Yeah - nothing except scale...that's why there is already concern from trail stakeholders and environmental regulators on the additional impacts of ebikes on off-road trails that were previously non-motorized access only, both in Europe and in North America. And that's with your Class 1 bikes which are, what...pedal-assist up to about 20mph/30kmph and limited to 750watts (i.e. truly an "assist")? So those motors are already a concern, although hopefully a solvable one...but now you've got riders in here calling for a 1500+ watt, 45mph pedal-assist Bafang motor. And I'm sure in the next year or two, someone will figure out how to make a 3000-watt, 75mph pedal assist motor with the same size factor, and, to quote Joker, here...we...go! It's playing directly into the hands of people and regulators who view these things as essentially motorized vehicles that should be prohibited off-road. And while I think there's a great MTB use case for the current limited-pedal-assist bikes (especially as size and weight continues to decrease and I continue to get older), I think those people who are hell-bent on motorbike-like power with bike-like weight are selfishly going to ruin it for the rest of us. Hope I'm wrong on that, but at this point it seems pretty clear that the result is going to be increased regulation, along with banning MTBs outright and increased actions against use of renegade/unsanctioned trails.... TLDR: this is why we can't have nice things. :)
