Norco Bicycles' All-New Aurum HSP - Video
I feel like Canfield Brothers deserve a mention given just how “radical” this new suspension design is.

For Sale is a BRAND NEW pair of the RaceFace Stash Bib size large. Bought the wrong size on EP, just need to get my money out of them. I have since purchased a size XL and love these things. Allows me to ditch the pack while still carrying plenty of food and water for 40+ mile days. FYI, a bottle in the frame and 2 in the bibs is over 2L of water! Even with 2 bottles in the lower back stash pockets there isn't a ton of bouncing, very comfortable. I accept PayPal only Price includes shipping to the lower 48. PM if you have any questions. See the RaceFace website for full details and more product pics. *Copy from RaceFace site* The STASH collection was developed for the growing number of riders trending away from using full hydration packs (especially on shorter rides) but still wanting the convenience of carrying items in a secured, balanced location. This new category offers a combination of storage core layers: tank, liner and bib. STASH gives riders the option to carry a bladder, spare tube, tool, pump, snacks, etc without having to wear a traditional pocketed XC jersey.

What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
@jcav5 Every year SRAM publishes a very detailed parts list for every AM component they manufacture known as the "SRAM Spare Parts Catalog". This annually published "data" we'll call it, just so happens to be lacking the very BB you're scolding them for creating (the 4130) DAMN! I guess you're the asshole, you win this one SRAM! Then you ask for more data so you (the informed consumer that you are) can make the call on whether or not this new tech really makes a difference. But let's be real here. Would you take a good hard look at said data if it were available? I feel like I'm pointing out the obvious here, but you're ignoring something as trivial as a parts list!? You don't even know what they actually make! What the hell are you going to do with test lab results?! And how the hell are you going to find these results if they don't smear them in your face! You might be surprised with how much info they share on their site if you bothered looking. And come on! How is a new crank and BB combo, from a company who already makes a spindle standard that requires a proprietary BB, killing you? GXP has existed for years and f#ck-all but a GXP crank fits into that Satan spawn of a BB. Pretty sure no one's actually lost sleep over GXP and it's silly to assume anyone will with DUB. Worst case you buy one of these cranks to upgrade your existing one (cause rad cranks get chicks and make you good at bikes, true story!) and you have to buy a new BB to go with it. Call this a 'Win' for SRAM if you like, but you just bought their crank (which won't make you any more desirable or better at bikes, true story!) and that's where the money is, not the BB :( The more reasonable argument would be the hassle associated in moving existing parts over to a different frame, but that's pretty weak too. Say you're old frame is a BB92 and the new frame is English threaded. CRAP! Dub or no Dub you're still buying a new BB :( Don't worry though, pretty sure we can still blame SRAM somehow...lets talk with the boys over in legal first thing tomorrow! :) Or maybe you go from PF30 to PF92. But gosh darn-it!! This PF30 bottom bracket from the old frame sure doesn't seem to fit in the new one. Damn! New BB again...AND nothing to do with DUB...again! But SRAM kind of created PF30 so I'm sure it's still their fault! Carl in legal said we've got a shot at this one! Then instead of improving they've just created a new standard? Errrrrr...how to you make something better without um...F*CKING changing it! Would graphics do?!?! CARL!!!!! The reality is that SRAM has to make parts to fit all the existing FRAME standards. Unless you live under a rock, that's LITERALLY THE ONLY PART OF A BIKE SRAM DOES NOT MAKE!!! Cranks to fit all the frames out there used to take 2 crank types (BB30 and GXP) and a pile of BB types. With DUB it takes 1 crank and far less BB's. Not sure if you understand what that means, but they just DRASTICALLY cut their crank SKUs! Believe it or not, the consumer wins here too! (Sit down Carl!) Say you have a DUB crank and you move to a different frame with a different BB interface. With DUB you can take your existing crank and install into whatever frame you just bought with the added CONFIDENCE that there's a bottom bracket out there that's been designed and tested for durability by SRAM. Granted this SKU cut won't pay off (for SRAM) until they kill PF30 and GXP crank production in a year or so. But once they do, they can just make whatever BB's for the old stuff, and all the new DUB stuff. It means that if you have DUB crank there's a properly engineered BB to fit it into your frame, AND that pesky 'Spare Parts Catalog' will be a few pages thinner if you ever decide thumb through it.
