Video: Remi Gauvin Compares if Different Brake Pads Can Make You Faster
It helps, organic pad gives the initial bite and metal pad comes in when you lay in to the brake. Also helps if you are steaming the brakes at least the metal pad will bite while it is hot and organic fades.

Behind the Numbers: Norco Sight
Interested to know what the difference in travel will be with some bikes now going to different chain stay lengths per size

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 8 - Do We Need an Even Larger Wheel Size?
Im 6'4'' and have absolutely no desire to see a bigger wheel size, 29ers are big enough. We need a 28" wheel for mullet bikes as there is too big of a difference visually between 27 & 29". Then thats it, leave it alone, ride yer damn bikes!

Review: TRP's New TR12 Shifter and Derailleur
@WAKIdesigns: you actually did that with xtr? Sounds like a recipe for singing high notes on the top tube. I personally rate sunrace cassettes for the sole reason that they are right price and that you can swap individual cogs when they wear out. I always wear out the 2nd highest cog as that is what I use for going downhill, and paying sram prices for a cassette with one worn cog isnt fun. Also sunrace seems to wear better, I generally do one chain swap then run the cassette out. On sram I was constantly swapping chains as the shifting would go off. Sunrace seems to wear in nice then you can run it til the cassette is done.

Review: TRP's New TR12 Shifter and Derailleur
@Konyp: I personally haven't tried 12 speed GX, but had 2 bikes with gx11 and it felt plastic-y and indirect. Going to x01 12 was a big improvement, you can go thru the gears & put power down knowing it wont bug a shift. Having said that the mech developed play and clutch was done after 6 months, it makes funny creaking noises if you move it side to side. Will be giving shimano a go for the next bike. Sram has definitely dropped their quality in recent years, the old x9 9 and 10 speed was actually quite nice. I had to swap an x9 10 speed mech a few years ago for a gx because that was all the bike shop had. Was surprised at how much plastic and bits of pressed steel had replaced nice chunks of alu. Seems they are happy drop quality but keep prices up there and tell you it is the best ever in the marketing

Review: TRP's New TR12 Shifter and Derailleur
r/s holds the patent for that, personally I dont mind as it means every other fork doent have lines tagged all over the stanchions. It would be handy for rear shocks tho.
