Pinkbike Poll: If You Had to Ride One Bike for the Rest of Your Life, What Would It Be?
If it were an eMTB of the future that weighs 35lbs I'd go with that, but 140mm trail bike has it.

CushCore's New Tire Lever Has a Lifetime Warranty
Cool, but I'm willing to bet we break one at the shop within a week of regular use.

Shimano Gearbox in the Works - Patents Filed on Hybrid Chain-driven Sequential-Shift Transmission
There is also the benefit of sprung mass vs unstrung mass. Having a big-'ol cassette, derailleur, chain, etc. hanging around the rear axle of a suspended bike does no favors for the suspension's performance.

Shimano Gearbox in the Works - Patents Filed on Hybrid Chain-driven Sequential-Shift Transmission
Yes, please. I've been saying for years that we need to switch to gearbox systems. If only I could get the thousands of hours of my life back that I've spent installing, adjusting, bending, aligning, cleaning, and cursing derailleurs... Not that gearboxes will be zero maintenance and won't break (everything fails at some point and under certain conditions), but compared to the vulnerable and finicky derailleur systems at present, there is promise here.
