Burning Question: Why Are So Many Bike Manufacturers Putting Cables Through the Headset?
@toad321: This. GT also had something decent at one point with the recess on the top side of the downtube (I think?) I also find Nicolai's routing to be superb. My favorite to work on.

Video: Joe Barnes Rides Hope's New 155mm Crank Arms
I went 165 in 2017, and then 155 in 2018. Haven't looked back. I put my 5'8 dad on 150mm cranks and he likes them a lot. The only time I run slightly longer cranks (170s) is on my SS so that I don't have to run absurd gear ratios to get the correct total gearing. It improves handling and has greatly helped my knee pain. I would love to try something like 135mm on a dirt jumper and/or park bike

this is precisely the kind of attitude that should be promoted. That's positive and encourages people to be healthy. Honestly I'm shocked that there's a company doing that, makes me want to buy something from them. Props to them

Mountain Bikes Don’t Need to Be Complicated: 5 Places Where Less is More
I have run 12 speed on 3 or 4 bikes now. I have gone back to 11 because 12 is unnecessary and simply seems to perform better (I have XO eagle sitting in a box in my garage.) Given the opportunity, I would run 9 or 10 speed. The clutch derailleurs are really what made everything so much better. If the Big S brands would put the newest tech into a wide range 9 speed system, I think that would become the preference for 99% of riders. Heck I have even considered making a custom cassette to fit on my Onyx SS wheels... it's not hard, and I could run a nice 6 speed setup with super wide hub flanges, inexpensive chains and ders, etc, but I digress...

totally agree with you. However, I think there is very clearly a growing cultural movement that would call you "fatphobic" and "misinformed" for your second sentence... and while not justified, I believe that many of negative comments are reactionary to that (and then some people just enjoy being mean.) We should not be mean to people for being overweight, especially when they are trying to get out and do something positive for their well being. We should welcome and encourage people of all shapes and sizes to get outside, move their bodies and join us in these wonderful activities. Having clothing to fit them as they start their journey is certainly part of that (plus, let's be honest, companies are trying to make more money and have a vested interest in more people participating in the market.) Plus, some people are just straight up big people, excess body fat or not. That's not the case for 98% of people needing a 38"+ waist, but it does happen. That being said, it is utterly shameful and wrong to promote the "healthy at any size" idea. Being obese always, no matter the other factors, boils down to running a caloric excess. (before anyone shrieks: every 50lbs of body fat is about 110 days of fuel for the average person; excess calories.)

Revolution Bike Park Closes Indefinitely
@jaame: I think you have misunderstood, everything negative is tied to climate change. Once you understand this, it's a very easy framework to work with! Hope this was helpful :)
