Pinkbike Poll: Clipless vs Flat - What's Your Pedal Preference?
@AndrewHornor: I had to reread that, and then I realized your probably right. Concave allows ball of foot to sit down in - for how most people seem to position feet, this makes sense why they like concave. Conversely, if you have the ball of foot farther forward then convex feels good. I do place my feet pretty far forward. It's a habit from back when huck to flat and street trials was in, and I would jack my ankle on hard landings if my feet weren't forward enough on the that's how I adapted. I prefer convex now...but it also took a long time to realize that because of the limited options and full on hype of concave/negative bashing of convex. But I prefer with convex, with the right shoe, the ability to reposition while unloaded, and that it doesn't make my feet hurt on long rides. And I truly don't feel like there is a need for more grip. It does depend a lot on the shoe and pedal. I run soft to medium flex shoes like freeride or freeride pros. With stiffer shoes, or even brand new pros, convex seem a little less secure.

Review: 2023 Giant Reign Advanced Pro 1
@SATN-XC: OR they have been burned in the past by it/headset routing isnt obscure enough for them... OD2 1-1/4 steertubes, the propel cable routing wasn't headset but was terrible top tube behind stem, their shitty tektro cable to hydraulic stem brake designs....I'm sure there are more, but those were last decade and sucked.

First Ride: Shimano's Auto-Shifting XT Di2 Linkglide Drivetrain
That last statement put a proper smile on my face. I read it as if you spoke with dry satirical monotone, and it was perfect.

Race Face Releases New Turbine Aluminum Wheels With a Lifetime Warranty
@Acourtney: I wonder the same. What is the exact process. Do they require that it ships to a race face dealer, and must be built by them? Or, will they send the rim directly to you, and you can lace it yourself? Does the warranty apply to replacements? We need specifics. If I have to pay someone $100 to build my replacement, I do not consider that a good deal...I will buy another brand new rim (probably not raceface), and build it myself. I worked shops for 18 years, and have all the required tools and knowledge to do it myself. In fact I prefer to do it myself, even if someone else offered to do it for free....

Been there, seen it. It's was a 15yr old though on a rental bike at a resort. Soft crash, fell on top of bike, and rode the bike down the hill on its side for about 8ft. Finger gone.
