Video: Extended Edit from Cannondale & Ratboy
@Neale1978: Earthed was kind of the equivalent of a Misspent Summers yearbook, documenting a year of riding/racing. But the audience required more frequent and immediate reports so the Parkin Bros did race reports on video and put them on the Dirt website. That kind of made Earthed obsolete. Or at least, it wasn't worth the risk of creating something like that when a huge part of the audience has already seen everything and watch it again with a mouseclick. Obviously I was bummed to and for 2008 I bought "The Tipping Point" from Clay Porter. It didn't quite do it for me. For many races just shots from the finish area whereas I'm mostly interested in the woods sections. And the "Rankin-feel" wasn't quite there either, obviously. Personally I'd love to see a return of the Earted series. I'm buying all the Misspent Summers books and I'd buy new Earthed dvds too. But I get that it is a tough market now having to compete with ten team videos per race.

Reece Wilson Completes the Trek Factory Racing DH Team Line Up
Good, they're done know. Luckily the information was already given on the main page so there was no need to click on the intermediate articles to see if there's any news. Looking at their picture, even they seem bored. Maybe Trek should just cut the crap and actually give them a bike to ride instead of just clothes, helmet and a stupid ball game.

Halo Release Entry Level Trail Wheelset & Tubeless Accessories Range
@DC1988: This is the very reason I dislike presta valves. Why not just stick with schraeder? No risk of unscrewing the valve core but you can if you need to.

Halo Release Entry Level Trail Wheelset & Tubeless Accessories Range
@qreative-bicycle: Yeah, this is one of the main reasons I mostly stuck with Shimano hubs. My first DT hub (DT 440, isn't around anymore) got such deep notches that it was a huge hassle to get my cheap cassette off. Now I understand that there were more complaints about DT aluminium of that era though it was enough reason to stay clear of aluminium freehubs ever since. Actually my current Syntace MX rear hub does have an aluminium freehub so that was my first attempt. And yes it did develop notches from my SLX cassette. But I actually got this hub because they do offer an aftermarket freehub with some steel pins to protect it. So I was confident that I wouldn't be all screwed after my first cassette swap.

@pr3dator: Being new to this sealant thing, I was wondering. Can you patch a tire just like that or do you need to clean and dry that inside surface for the patch to actually stick? If so, does it depend on the type of sealant?

A CrMo freehub? That's cool. Too many companies come with an aluminium freehub which require an expensive cassette with spider as the cheaper (but otherwise perfectly fine) Shimano cassette would notch it and become stuck. Halo actually looked at what the target audience of an entry level wheelset would spec on a bike and went for a sensible steel freehub.

Review: Magura's MT7 Pro Brakes Are Ultra-Customizable
@lenmerderdenfer: Thanks. Yeah just to be clear it is just that I don't have experience with them but I expect them to be just fine. Being from The Netherlands most of my bicycle parts bought online came from CRC. This past year I moved more towards Bike24 because of their more varied offerings (especially as I'm on "old" standard of bike components). Not saying the Brexit will drive me away from UK shops, that's pretty unrelated. In fact I love the increase UK-made stuff like what Superstarcomponents is making. But yeah next time I need something I'll consider bike-discount too. Thanks for the tip :)!

Field Test: 3 Full Suspension Mountain Bikes Under $3000
@bman33: Do you have numbers on the failure rate of the NX shifter against the X01 trigger shifter? I've no experience on either but considering the forces involved I don't quite see why plastic wouldn't be up to it. And as much as you have different alloys, you also have different plastics. PP is already quite tough (what tie-wraps are made of), nylon (PA) and POM are even tougher and self lubricating, used in durable food processors with 700 watt motors. I expect these internals of the shifter to be at least PP, possibly nylon. That's just guesswork though. Considering you've studied what's inside, can you tell? In general though, I've seen more poor castings of aluminium than faulty injection moulded plastic parts.
