Field Test: Cannondale Habit Carbon
@dcaf: I wonder if somebody caught that the GX derailleur comes with steel ball bearings in the jockey pulleys and the XO comes with some sort of hybrid ceramic bearing that doesn't rust. Every mid-range sram derailleur (including Rival derailleurs I race cross with) come with the steel pulley bearings, and they rust solid after a bit of sloppy wet riding and rinsing with the hose. They can be disassembled, unfrozen with penetrating oil, then regreased, but it's a pain in the ass and totally unnecessary. Shimano gets by just fine with plain bushings in their pulleys. So if this was the plan, high five to whoever noticed and spec'ed the drivetrain this way.

First Ride: The 2019 Cannondale Habit is Shockingly Normal
I don't get this attitude/gripe. For the vast majority of buyers, this bike/spec won't be raced in a high-level XC race or whatever. So why not spec a gear that works well for regular folks climbing up to the top of the mountain? Anybody who regularly needs a 34x10 top gear knows exactly who they are and what gearing they need :) Meanwhile I do love my 30T ring with 50T cog while making that 3rd ascent of the day up the 18% section of forest road.

First Look: Shimano's New XTR is More Than Just 12-Speed
It's a real thing--heat radiates best from dark colors. Not that it's a large factor on something that's spinning around in free air (convection cooling) all the time...

9point8 Fall Line Dropper Post 150mm 30.9

$280 USD
Hey! I have my 9point8 Fall Line 150mm mechanical dropper for sale. Diameter is 30.9mm. I don't have a home in my stable for this one, so off it goes. It's lightly used with no issues. It has zero hours on a fresh re-seal and inspection from the factory. This post has the 25mm set-back head. The heads are interchangeable (you can get other offsets, etc from 9point8 if needed.) It comes with everything needed EXCEPT: a remote lever, a cable and housing. Any cable-actuated lever will work. I like the Wolf Tooth lever. Thanks!
