Cannondale Introduces the New Jekyll 29
@bohns1: I can verify the same. It just works and I really like the Oneup lever too. Can’t believe how long I put up with the awful Reverb ergonomics in hindsight.

Video & Race Report: Trans BC Enduro Days 1 & 2 - Rossland
@vspin: I'd like to say too how awesome the owner (who's name I forget) is at Revolution. Somewhere around 2008 I was on a Kootenay bike road trip and had seriously mangled my bike the day before when a stick got caught in my derailleur, broke the hanger and bent the derailleur cage. When I told him I didn't know how I was going to do the 7-summits ride the next day, he went into overdrive and pulled out all the stops to make sure I was going to make it. I felt bad as he ended up having to delay his shuttle ride he had planned but he told me how awesome that ride was and that he knew I'd be back if I did it. He was correct. It's more XC than maybe most PB'ers are into, but the 7-summits is a must do ride with an awesome shuttle-worthy Dewdney descent at the end.

OMG that looks fun. People never seem to credit the songs in the videos - which I loved BTW - that had to be the legendary RL Burnside right? Someone please confirm.

Review: Kona Satori DL
So the other day I saw that glimpse of the new Kona Honzo CR and they actually put chainguide tabs on it. Then this without them? I do not design bikes but can it really be substantially more expensive to just put the damn tabs on? I feel like they are mandatory. Even with a narrow-wide chainring, a clutch derailler, and a tight chain, chain drops happen when you're charging and they suck each and every time. Until I owned the 2017 Honzo CR I didn't recognize just how important they are and now I will never buy another frame without them.

Media Days Randoms I: Paul Finally Finds a Bike That's Too Big - Eurobike Media Days
Honzo CR finally has the much needed chainguide tabs they left off the 2017 model!! The world truly is a better place now.

Must Watch: Precision Drone Piloting Makes Riding Look Unbelievable
I am enjoying the coverage of Fernie lately. It is such an epic spot that sometimes gets overlooked as BC is so literally chalked full of amazing ski/bike towns.

Pinkbike Poll: Is There a Chain Guide on Your Bike?
@Klainmeister: Thanks I had never heard of Paul Components. I'm kind of doubtful it would work "off the shelf" due to the shape/size of the Honzo seat tube near the chainring but with some customization of the clamp it just might. I had never planned to run mine SS and the PF BB is silent so if I could get this thing to stop dropping chains I'd keep it for life.

Pinkbike Poll: Is There a Chain Guide on Your Bike?
As much as I love my 2017 Honzo Cr I cannot forgive Kona for not putting chainguide tabs on it. Chain drops always happen on the fastest, roughest and most fun part of the descents. It doesn't happen on every ride but enough for me to proclaim it the Achilles heel of the bike. I'm running the chain as tight as possible, don't know what else to do as with a PF BB there are no other options I'm aware of. If someone could please enlighten me I would be happy. Running an X01 derailleur w Shimano 11-42 cassette and a RF narrow-wide chainring.
