Added reply in a thread EWS Doping Thread Disappearance 11/26/2018 1:53 PM

Interesting how some people are acting as though if they are not in dark back alleys with needles, blood bags and a dr w/ an Italian last name ... it must not be doping....or at least it requires a different punishment. Seems to me that the needle and ... more »

Not sure about this, even the "normal" ingredients list has stuff on it that I would question putting in my body daily if I was a pro athlete at their levels - artificial colors and flavors. Maybe that's just me. Considering that supplement photo (wow!) ... more »

So before an unnamed post above was edited, I thought it mentioned a French rider on a US team who's parents were the promotors(?) of the French EWS round. The manager of said team is supposedly a key source of the rumors. So....who is the rider and ... more »

Admins need to start putting people on a time-out, wearing the dunce hat, and facing the wall in the corner of the room for posts that have non-racing rumor content.

Please move this discussion to the "pedaling sucks" forum. This one is for team rumors and not uphill alpine sking.

Weird. Maybe you got a faulty cassette. My last 3 bikes got the TRS+ cassette paired with XT 11 speed shifter and medium cage derailleur with a KMC chain. Always perfect from the get go and shifted better than the 11-46 XT cassette every time...With the med cage derailleur I also get...more

Great review. Me and my friends are all riding the TRS+ cassette and can't say enough great things about it. Shifts better than the XT 11 speed cassette, has more range and is much lighter. It cost a bit more for sure but for me that's worth it!

Strange. I have several off these on different bikes and they have been great. Wider range than current eagle 12s even, no problems with wear, shift great. I have had to replace the alloy section on one bike but that was after months of a fair amount of riding....and way better than the SRAM 10-42 which which I had to replace the whole cassette after wearing out the 42. .

I have the cassette on 3 different bikes and all shift perfectly! One is a year and a half old and is getting worn but still works. The vast majority of user reviews are very positive as well. The only ones I've seen not work are with people not using an 11 speed chain (or worn...more

If Gwin is off YT, I certainly would not assume YT needs to "save face". There are a lot of different logical reasons why that could happen and actually be the SMARTER move for YT. If Gwin is asking for some crazy $...it's a different situation than ... more »

Added reply in a thread Cush Core technique. Why the complaints? 9/13/2018 5:03 PM

Specific tire/rim combos make it easier or harder. One trick I use if installing on a wheel with a tire already on (or a particularly stubborn tire): just remove the bead from one side of the wheel and leave the other 1/2 of the tire installed against ... more »

Sounded like a lot of chatter at CWX about team transfers. Here are a few stab in the dark thoughts: -Gotta figure Thomas Estaque bumped to Commencal Valnord or other top team. -Scott picks up a heavy hitter and young gun for WC results on the new bike ... more »
