First Ride: Spot Mayhem 140 - A Trail Bike With a Titanium Leaf Spring
@sharpiemtb: I wouldn't call something a work around that is an entirely different design. But yet, it does achieve a very similar end function. Though this moves in an arc with forces imparted by the leaf spring, vs Switch Infinity simply moves linearly.

Spotted: Matt Hunter's Aluminum Specialized Stumpjumper Has a Cable Actuated Derailleur
@succulentsausage: It's because the S Works frame is the exact same as the "regular" carbon frame. Was on the last gen too, the only difference is paint and the carbon link.

Video: Weird Bikes, Boutique Frames & Dangerholm Builds - Eurobike 2024
@headset-apologist: Ok, I'll bite. How is it possible that your Spark is "easier to work on" than other bikes? Unless you previously only owned some real stinkers of design, that seems impossible. Want to do literally anything to the shock? Added steps in taking off/on the cover. Need to change a cable? Dropping the fork as well. I don't think the whole headset cable routing is as big of an issue as it's made out to be, but it certainly isn't a step in the easier direction compared to almost any other bike. Especially modern bikes that have tube in tube cable routing, pushing a cable/hose into the frame and having it pop out the other side is quite easy.

@dangerholm: Excellent explanation, and I totally agree that once you go full wireless, 1 brake cable going through the headset really isn't a big deal. Also on custom builds by a clearly very good mechanic, it again isn't a big deal as you'll never be dropping off this bike to the bike shop begging for them to do a quick service job on the weekend. You the man!

@lkubica: Dangerholm's builds are so far from what manufacturers are pushing stock that it makes no difference. These are complete custom builds with almost every single component modified in weird ways that obviously make the bike harder to work on and less convenient. It looks amazing, and are more works of art than anything, even if they are less serviceable. I love Dangerholm builds, and it's totally ok to love them and be against stupid ideas like headset cable routing. No manufacturers are looking at his builds and thinking, hey that's what the people want!

First Ride: The 2025 Specialized Stumpjumper Has a New Dual Chamber Air Shock
Wireless only and a proprietary shock. That's a no from me. After owning a 2012 Stumpy with the Brain, I'll never own a proprietary shock again. I like my current StEvo going into the future even more now.
