Two Pro Bikes from Downhill Southeast - Windrock II 2020
1) That dog is a good girl/boy. Amazing smile. 2) Glad I am not the only one who is amazed at how durable Nox rims seem to be. Going on 5 years and many, many hard hits on the first set of 29er AM rims (back when they were still called that). Other than a very minor trueing job once a season, they have given precisely zero fucks no matter what happens to them.

Mondraker Releases Grommy e-Balance MTBs
@MikeGruhler: I don't think anyone is complaining about moto riders. They're fantastic athletes, and more to the point, they are not pretending their motos are magically non-motorized vehicles and trying to ride them on non-motorized trails. It's the people who insist the electric motor doesn't make an e-bike a motorized vehicle that are causing the problems.

The Frace F160 is Milled From a 70kg Slab of Aluminum
While it is frankly artwork, the design is definitely not weight optimized. Hollow tubes are unbeatable in the stiffness to weight ratio department, going with the trestle design as shown here is going to result in significantly more weight to get the same stiffness.

BrakeAce's Power Meter Is Designed to Help Riders Improve Their Braking
@caltife: Not with the "easily rebuildable part". Shimano doesn't even sell spare parts for their brake levers, just the entire thing. Also considerably harder to source individual drivetrain pieces.

MTB on a Budget: Where to Spend & Where to Save on Mountain Bike Clothing - Part 1
@coyotecycleworks: Mmmm... disagree on the lights. The cheapo amazon never match their lumen claims, have terrible light patterns, are short on battery, and get killed by environmental conditions. When I started night riding, I was fully on board the el-cheapo "JUST AS GOOD" light train, and could never understand why people weren't terrified riding at night. Then I tried my buddy's Nightrider setup and it made a world of difference. No, you don't have to shell out $500+ for a botique Lupine matching annodized set, but you do get what you pay for. Sure your next of kin might be able to get a refund on that 20 buck Ali Express 2000 lumen light that happened to die right before the corner at the cliff edge, but not really your concern. Along with contact points, reliable lights are one of the few things I would advocate spending enough to get to at least the mid-tier with on bike stuff.

Now THAT Was a Bike: Psycle Werks Wild Hare
Agreed. Ironically looks more modern then their current '80's hair metal bubble logo.

Review: Atomik's BERD XC33 Wheels Use Spokes That Look Like String
@cofo11: As long as Joe Hobbiest doesn't sell his creations, there is nothing a patent holder can do. A patent protects commercial interests only, it doesn't prevent the DIY market from making things for their own personal use.

Lithium-Sulfur Batteries Could Offer a Cheaper, Greener & More Efficient Alternative
For those who don't track developments in batteries: Some new miraculous battery technology that's X times better than Lithium Ion batteries gets announced, on average, once a year, for the past three decades. There are always just a few more glitches to iron out before they become mass market items. We still use Lithium Ion batteries for pretty much everything rechargeable. Make of that what you will.

Field Test: 2020 Guerrilla Gravity Trail Pistol - Down for Whatever Country
@privateer-wheels: The swap on a GG takes about 5 minutes tops. Put bike in stand, remove wheels, remove shock, remove seatstay, install new seatstay, install new shock, install wheels. The tolerances on the frame are basically perfect, so there's no struggling to get things to fit. Swapping on a daily or weekly basis is totally feasible.
