Tech Randoms: Part 2 - Crankworx Innsbruck 2018
Sniff. One off the worst names for a saddle. Trying to think of others... Swett-eBolz? AzcrackCradle? Tenderizer?

Unior One-Piece Cassette Wrench - Review
@taquitos: Run the other end of the chain through the claw in a hammer. Works a charm.

Unior One-Piece Cassette Wrench - Review
For years I just used an old length of chain wrapped around the cassette and held in the nail puller on a claw hammer, then un-did my lockring with a lockring tool and large crescent wrench. This is better.

Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
I'm a peasant. Every hour at work is an hour i could be riding, or doing something else. There is a sweet spot. Somewhere around XT/SLX I figure. Past that, diminishing returns.

Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
@solarplex: I'm never worried about going faster; I can always coast. I still haven't figured out how to coast up an incline, however, so until i do, I'll take all the the help I can get! Gearing preferences are somewhat personal, and dependent on physique. I used to ride with guys who thought that granny gears were, well, for grannies.

Video: Kona Launches New Aluminum Hei Hei Bikes
@juicebanger: Weird. I got mine the same way. 2015 almost new for $1900 last October. The Pikes had lower leg vacuum suck, maybe the guy thought it was supposed to ride like that. Fixed that, only put another $300 into it and now? Pffft! Bike is amazing!

Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
Well, I just ran the numbers. An SLX build 11spd, with an 11-46t rear cluster will set you back less money than this, but paired with a 30t front chainring, will deliver similar gearing inches. Weightwise, the Shimano group comes in at about 150 grams less weight. Honestly, what is the advantage of 12 over 11 speeds, apart from the one gear? Is it worth 150 grams? You can build up the SLX for $265 USD or about $310 CAD at CRC, so..... Am I missing something here?
