The shot of Dylan by James is what puts the icing on the cake. The technicality of the drop puts butterflies in your stomach literally. The capture of the mountain range in the background is breathtaking with it being out of focus and sharp up close. Makes anyone want to ride right now.

Mr. P

Have you picked up an XX1 or XTR cassette? They are freaky light. You will lose, what, 25g by going to a more compact cassette? Sounds like a win.

I think I have lost 1 chain in a year... But I opted for not just the narrow-wide but the tall tooth ring (BlackSpire), no chainguide for me, so YMMV.

I love my 1x (with cheater ring for the big mountain days). And if you can't spin a 30t up to 30-40mph on a downhill, you don't know how to pedal at a high cadence. It just takes a quick burst and gravity takes over.

Rock your 2x. More power to you. Bikes are fun. Get over it.

PS: The real story is about the patent and how it might effect future innovation in 3rd party cassette development.

First Look: 2015 Five Ten Kestrel and Freerider Contact Shoes

ree, there is only one universal metric when it comes to shoe sizing between brands and that is the physical CM length on the shoe. Look up what DC shoes CM length is and then find the closest thing to it in 5.10's sizing. it is usually the last sizing scheme alongside Euro, Mondo and whatever else. That should do the trick.

Akrigg is about one video away from being the most sought after cyclist for any brand. He could sell anything. I had a quick moment of thinking CX would be fun.

Clearly RaceFace rings use a different shock leverage ratio, so the patents are not infringed...

That plastic disc will stop the chain from eating into your spokes if it goes too far over, but it isn't going to stop a rear derailleur that is hit on a rock. The plastic disc is rendered useless by a well-tuned derailleur stopping the chain from coming over and does nothing in the way of a bent hanger.

There is a little car for sale in the UK called a Caterham. It's design is essentially the same as when it was conceived in the 1950's. The models with the high output engines will put seconds into any modern supercar around a track. The point is, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Bikes are all about geometry and suspension (mainly shock rate). Seeing as though these things can be built up very light I see no reason why it isn't at least as good as anything else on the market.

ISCG is the standard, not ISCG OLD or ISCG-03 - those are just made up names. ISCG-05 was invented for a standard that never came - ISIS OS. ISCG-05 has a larger BCD and thus limits where you can design pivots in/around the BB area. There are plenty of BIG bike companies still using the original ISCG standard for that reason, yet people think that because the ISCG-05 standard is "newer" it's better. I wish we could just go back to the original standard, it would make my job easier.
