RockShox's Electronic Wireless Dropper Post - Mont-Sainte-Anne World Cup
Lets see..... 1) One less cable to look at. 2) One less cable to rattle inside the frame 3) Routing normal droppers SUCKS. All of them.... 4) When it DOES break(It's no Revive) it's 3 seconds to remove and replace. I kinda like it...

DH Bike Setup Changes - Vallnord World Cup 2018
I'm not sure why there is so much drool over the Unno Ever. It's nice for sure, but I think even the new V10 has cleaner lines, and looks better overall.

Gee Atherton's Trek Session 29er - Vallnord World Cup 2018
I'm curious about his levers. Looks like the end balls are chopped off. I have some Hope Tech 3's, and they are super freaking sweet in function, but the holes the the levers feel terrible just kills it for me!

Good Ideas Executed Poorly - Opinion
@madblack: He does explain it well, and I agree with everything he says. This is why I feel the rotors need conical/counter sunk bolts retaining them, to make sure they all take some of the shear force. At least put a shoulder on the bolts or something!

@scotthy72: Yes automotive rotors DO have a tapered surface! Not always, but quite often the brake rotor is not just loose on the studs, but rather there are a few counter sunk head bolts that both the rotor to the hub.

@Obidog: The hundreds of bicycle brake rotor bolts I have seen, all have the blue dab of thread lock. Though thread "LOCK" is a funny name, as unless you are using the RED(high heat required to remove), that blue stuff is only there to keep the bolts from falling out if they do come loose. The blue Loctite does not "LOCK" anything.

@robhill: The car wheel was a bad analogy here in a way, as a car wheel see's forces from MANY directions, unlike the brake rotor itself. To that though, yes the 5 bolts hold the car wheel on when ripping around a corner with high lateral forces.

@robhill: Agree'd the bolts are only in tension....... When they are tight.
