My advice to people: do not weigh your bikes - unless you're trying to build up a hill-climb specific bike. There have been a lot of tests and studies about bike weight, and the consensus is, it doesn't matter nearly as much as people think it does. For some...more

Jeff, slow people don't need heavy tires, strong wheels, or real brakes. This, in turn, makes their bikes much lighter.

And there's the backfire. But i must admit the customer support OneUp has is top notch. Plus I'm thinking the three small bearings (or the bushing of the redesigned rebuild kit) could be replaced with a needle bearing, the dimensions fit, i'd just need to have a 1 mm spacer...more

Was waiting for someone else to say what I was thinking. Shortest lasting part (before a needed rebuild) I’ve put on any of my bikes in 25 years......

Decided it wasn’t worth the rebuild to just have them start creaking and ticking again in a few months, so I bought another set of OneUps......

Well the Spikes were the reason i decided that i don't ever want to have bushings on my pedals again. Boy did that backfire on another product :D

But i still think the elusive rolling element only bearing pedal that works is out there!

First thing i saw was 'easy to maintain'. They better be with the IGUS bushings wearing out in two or three months and the pedals getting noisy due to increased clearance int he bushing (pedal clacking around when dropping your bike to the ground which then sounds like a loose...more

I think you missed the point. There’s NOTHING about this shoe that is available to the public, regardless of your opinion about the “fugly color”..... Right down to the rubber compound.

Not Vital’s fault, they just reviewed what was sent....

Sorry, but if I want them, they have to be in this "special" colour.

Loss of trail access is the big ticket. The various trail user groups throughout the US are very heavily anti-MTB. Mountain biker advocacy groups across the US have fought a long hard battle to get what little access we have. As of late, the fight has been going very well, mainly due to the...more

Seriously, you brought up Trump!? People who bring up Trump are out... Its a mountain bike website. Please leave it as such.
Besides that I agree pretty much with your insurance and outs. I do like my spuds though. Cheers to a totally rad new year!

Completely agree with you guys.... I tend to get cold first (like most) at the usual 3 spots, Toes, hands, wedding tackle. I DO think there's validity to the theory that platform pedal shoes are warmer than clipless shoes....

As a follow up, went out yesterday at 11 degrees Fahrenheit for about an hour. The toes started to get a little cold. For me, I think that's the temperature limit for these shoes. Another thing I found with these shoes--- if there's snow on rocks, they are like wearing ice skates. EXTREMELY slippery!
