The CST produced tires you referred to earlier are not really "rebranded" in the sense that CST is just selling a finished tire and companies are putting their logo on them. In all those cases companies use CST as their tire manufacturer and work with them to spec casing/compounds and generally spec their own tread profile.

Hi Tristan, thanks for the question. We are a privately owned tire maker formed in 1977 with our own rubber plantation and production factory. Every aspect of our manufacturing process, from engineering to design to final production is done in our own factory in Thailand. We even...more

CST owns and controls Maxxis. The first gen e13 tires were made at CST but current ones are not. As I understand Spech and trek are no longer made there either. Vee owns the factory and also produces tires for several other brands.

Stoked! The OG pedals were stickier than the stickiest icky. New pins are similar so these should be sweet.

Nice to see Gwin lay out the details. People thinking some elaborate story was made up to protect e*13 might be spending a bit too much time in the comment sections of the webernets. Same thing with the general disrespect....99% of the people would walk ... more »

It's odd that the lord cant answer such a simple question for him? Maybe she's too busy having fun riding her ebike?

Anyone remember those old dia tech (?) headsets on the Marin's in the early/mid 90's that used a cam wedge for HS preload like the new One-Up stem does?

This just killed my reason to swap my dead GX eagle cassette with another one.
Heck, im thinking a 28t or 30t upfront instead of 32T(steel) i have now and the 9-46 would save me a pound of weight and gain ground clearance..

No 10 speed, but the 11s 9-42 XCX cassette was just announced - even tighter spacing than the old 10s...and lighter. Im on the 9-46 12s, the jumps between cogs are perfect and shifting is so crisp. Rear derailleur adjustments are not as fickle as with a 50t large cog also which is nice.

Woah. Minnaar off Gamut and running a Shimano guide this year it looks like. He's been running Gamut forever.

Seems like there is $hit flying in both directions. Im sure the actual scientists cringe at what happens once the marketing teams dumb-down an insanely complex topic to the knuckle-dragging populace. BUT IT'S GREEENNNNN!!!!!

PM's and the SKU bean counters at the big companies heads might explode if this becomes more of a thing. Does this harken in the return of 26"? Pick 2 wheel sizes and be a dick about it?

I've got the RUNT plugged in to my 2019 Fox 36 with the Grip 2 damper. I opted to just plug it in and not tune the damper at all in an effort to change one variable at a time. At the time, I was also considering throwing the Push ACS3 coil kit into the fork in order to better match...more
