Review: Crankbrothers' Candy 7 Pedals Have Wings
This goes out of hand for sure, but at the same time it has to hang in a bike shop for customers to see. Shimano is the worst though, it’s hard to even use it in the shop. Did you see the size of boxes that Shimano stuff comes in? You could fit 10 rotors in a package for a single, shitty, Deore rotor. Not to mention the bloody shoe box for their brakes or shifters. And then each thing comes with Encyclopedia Brittanica of safety instructions so that Billy Bobby won’t hurt himself while installing a fricking brake rotor with 6 bloody bolts, and won’t sue them.

Get Shimano shoes, they have a more recessed platform. You will barely hear me walking in them with CB or Time cleats on marble floor. If you on the other hand go in 5.10s with Shimano cleats...

Over a year on latest Mallet DH, no sign of them needing any care.

Review: Crankbrothers' Candy 7 Pedals Have Wings
The lack of float of XTs then necessity to set them hard as fuk to avoid unclipping unintentionally, cage being too flat making the shoe wobble around, makes them a hard sell for me. Also CB has improved their bearing life a lot (haven’t serviced them at all since I bought them last spring) and the large cage around Mallets makes it quite unlikely to hit something with the mechanism. Most horror stories of bent cages come from owners of Eggbeaters. I also wasted the mechanism in my Time MX4, and if I was to go for Anything but CB, I’d go for Time Atac which beat XT in every single aspect, leaving you only with preference of how the pedal feels.

RockShox's Updated Reverb Stealth Gets the Squishy Post-Fixing Vent Valve
@gonecoastal: crankbros droppers have postponed the development of the dropper era hahaha. If you bought a joplin or that other, even worse crap they made after that, you’d become a denier and tell people to use seat clamp. I has KS Supernatural and it was really good.

Enve Announces $2100 M Series Wheels
@ProChargedZ28: the issue with Enve is that you do need a spare wheelset. If you owned A wheelset equipped with dt/hope hubs and dt/spank rims, you’d be much less likely to require any form of customer support.

@russthedog: forget about it, when you buy Enve you must brainwash yourself so much that you are making a right decision, that anything will make sense.

Tioga Announces New Front-Specific Tire
@conoat: you are a moron with minority complex issues. Let me educate you. The thinnest sidewalls are found on Maxxis Lite, Schwalbe Evo, Continental speed. Examples: Thunderburt, speed king. XC Marathon/ gravel. Then we have a bit thicker Evo Snake Skin, Maxxis EXC. they are still toilet paper. Then comes standard Maxxis classic 1ply casing which is equal to all Bontrager XR tyres. Above that we have Exo, which is equal to SE from Bonty. And it works well on intermediate tyres on short travel bikes. Now smarten up.

Tioga Announces New Front-Specific Tire
@conoat: XR4 and SE4 works good on short travel bikes where casing stability is not necessary. Knobs are also too short and don’t have enough grip to make you be able to require this stability. What is stupid is 1ply casings on tyres like minion or magic mary. So is using those tyres on short travel bikes. Bontrager tyres are some of the best if not the best. Learn to think and ride. Nobody sane proposes XR4 for riding you try to make us believe you do.
