Review: Bontrager's Updated XR3 is a Surprisingly Versatile XC Tire
@WAKIdesigns: I'm running 2.6 XR2 back and 2.6 Rekon front. Only for about a month or so and so far so good, except for the most sketchy super steep (-30%+ grade). I wonder if XR3 will be a better match as a front tire, though I feel the Rekon has better center/braking knobs. The issue with Rekon and Maxxis is general size for size they are blow-up smaller to stated size compared to the Bontragers and many others. Will still need to wait for 2.6 version for the XR3 anyway.

First Ride: Shimano's Back in the Game With New XT and SLX 12-Speed Groups
@covekid: I agree. Microspline is PITA for all. That said given the price and if XT feels nearly as buttery smooth as XTR stated in this article, I would consider replacing my GX Eagle drivetrain with XT when the time comes. Hopefully by then there will be more hub/driver options.

Ibis Announces New S-Wheels, Collaboration with Stan's NoTubes
They are speaking to their target market - mid-aged men and dentists. I don't think a millennial wannabe shredder can even comprehend what an informercial is. Would have been even funny if they said "call RIGHT NOW at 1-800-FUN-HOOPS and get a bottle of Stan's sealant for FREE!"

@loopie: Amazon is encroaching in every business...not just e-commerce and retail. Their goal is to drive profit margins down to single digits in every business. Buy the time they own most of the worlds big business even with 2% profit margin will market Bezo the world's first Trillionaire.

Opinion: Carbon and Aluminum Wheels - Does Stiffer Always Mean Better?
Correct. Not one size, stiffness, fits all heights and weights. I'm like to see more options available and it's good see new companies like Forbidden Bike Co, come up with variable proportionate chainstay lengths for example.

YT Announces New 2019 Jeffsy
@Svinyard: Yeah - Fezzari is finally coming out with some compelling bikes recently. Both La Sal and Wire Peak are very interesting. However, there's something weird/funky with La Sal geo measurements. The reach is definitely med-longish, but the toptube measurement is very short - 563mm on Medium is shorter the Small on the Jeffsy (and most other bikes!) Other minor grip on Fezzari is their design are still on the ugly side - random mix of curves, lines and sharp edges. Reminds of of the previous generation Pivots which IMO were pretty ugly.
