Bike Check: Jono Jones' Propain Tyee - Ard Rock 2023
I actually have one bike now and have worked on a few (including shift cable and brake line replacement) with headset routed cables/brake lines. Certainly a pain in the ass. But once the fork is out it's no more difficult than a bike with internal routing. The rubbing on the steerer thing is still a thing? Never saw that in real life myself. Granted I was working on newer ebikes with 2000km or less on them. Can someone enlighten me as to what all the fuss is about? I do get the PITA part. Because yeah, it is. But like I said, pop out the fork and find a way to hold the bars in a similar way as they would be as if installed, and it's not that much different than normal internal routing.

First Ride: Forbidden Druid V2 - High Pivot Evolution
If only the complete build was 1000 bucks more. Would have been a serious contender for the moots :(

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Which Saddles Pinkbike's Editors Put on Their Own Bikes
I typically don't comment on articles anymore. Just was wondering why only one saddle width was listed.

Honestly if you're only using one for the foot nuts and brake bolts then you may as well not bother using one at all.

Shimano's New XT Di2 Drivetrain Can Shift Automatically & While Coasting, But Only For eBikes
You are not wrong. So much bike business here is in the form of a 3 year lease with a full service package. Subscription culture...

I see what you're saying. I personally don't want this, but I think on the performance side, this could be a great advantage in an E-Bike race. On the other side, the mobility side that is, people REALLY want this kind of stuff. Here in Germany (and other parts of Europe) the bicycle isn't so much seen as a hobby, but a viable alternative means of transportation. The E-Bike is just an extension of that. It's allowed people who don't really want to put in a big effort to get across town, people getting older or those who don't want to show up sweaty to work to get back on two wheels again. Many of these don't and never really did understand shifting, or just don't want to. The market is there and Shimano knows their audience.

@onawalk: enviolo is pretty okay. Not perfect, but okay. There is a huge market for this kind of stuff. You would be blown away to see how many ~170mm travel e-enduros have basically full fenders around here. One of the most asked questions when people buy these tanks is: "can you put a kickstand on this?" Granted, a lot of this is due to bike leasing funded by employers. A lot of people get a gigantic budget and think because they occasionally ride on dirt paths, that they "need" a mountain bike. Generally speaking also the same people that wear out the 10/11/12t cogs in 100km or less. The record so far was chain slippage after a grand total of 27km.

Opinion: When It Comes To Suspension, Don't Forget The Basics
Just a quick google and it looks to be the same or less. Depends if you're talking about a street bike or a motocross bike. 50 hours is a lot of riding. https://kontrolsuspension.com/service-schedule/ Generally I do a minimum of one lower leg service per year. Winter is good for that. It's easy enough. Complete strip and rebuild once every two seasons.
