@Vital - Curious about your opinion on the relatively conservative 25mm inner rim width (technically with hookless beads that pushes it even narrower)?

Seems like the trend is way wider these days....esp for DH. (Or maybe that is a small minority making a lot of noise?)

Thoughts?

When the inner width of a rim is measured, it's the smallest measurement (the distance between the inside of the beads), yeah? If that's the case then Enve truly does measure 25mm, not narrower. It doesn't really matter if others are wider below the beads, as the width at the bead...more

I'm going to play Devil's Advocate for a second here since there's a lot of assumptions and blind hate toward Giant. There are other possibilities for the lawsuit being dismissed than Giant being an evil Goliath. Maybe DW's claims of patient violations would not have held up in patient...more

Its a metaphor for 'it was exciting', which is often how I am when a new product arrives, but for something with the illustrious brand behind it that ENVE has, it was a little more-so. The fact that I mention clearly, through no use of metaphors, that I didn't know if I would really...more

Common materials must mean comparable quality, R&D, cost to manufacture, warranty support, and performance. Wait what?

Doubt that. He seems to be one of those guys who wants to win fair and square, not with others out with injuries...

The pricing on the cassette seems like a lot to charge for what they're offering. It's easy to see how the XX1 or X01 cassette, machined from a single block of steel, would be expensive. But they're charging just a bit less for what is mostly a conventional cassette that happens to have a few extra...more

How cheap does it need to be? It's $662 without the cranks - which most people don't need because you can just run a N/W ring on whatever you have. I think it's pretty amazing tech for that price.

Serious BS on the DQ. If they didn't DQ Rachel at Windam a couple years ago, there's no way Minnaar gets one today.

Cool story on the shoes, though...it would be pretty surreal if Gee approached me track-side and asked to swap shoes. Stoked Ratboy, Neko and Hill put...more
