This nails it. Likewise, does anyone care that people use different wheel sizes in enduro? Nope.

This. It's a race, ride what you think is fastest.

The reviews here are some if not the most thorough in the mountain biking media. I like that you all break stuff as this is something few reviewers readily discuss. The literary and historical references are fun too. I am long time Joseph Conrad fan and I hope to get...more

The final sentence calls out the pricing. Yes, it's expensive. So are the hours of CNC time it takes to make that incredible cassette so it doesn't weigh five pounds, the team of engineers it took to come up the improvements, and on and on. The price will no doubt improve as...more
