I have a 2018 SB 5.5 Turq in XL raw that is 26.4lbs with 11spd XO1. That is quite heavy.

Not to be disagreeable, but I have a Yeti SB 5.5 with a nearly identical build. Similar wheels (DT 1200/30), Similar burly tires, lighter pedals, and everything else is within a few grams. Those wheels are 1550 grams - crazy light by any standard.

Mine weighs 26.9 lbs with pedals on 2 different scales. I rather doubt...more

I cannot get the cage to not stop spinning back to its original point. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

I did just the cassette install in the 10-46 option. I didn't feel the need to change the cage as I was previously using the press on Wolftooth 46t on my XO1 cassette with no issues. Feel free to ask any questions you might have.

hey did you do the Garbaruk install yourself, including the SRAM derailleur cage mod? If so, I have a question for you!!

Heavy compared to my Roval Traverse SL 29r boost wheels. Pass.

In California it has made production costs drop dramatically in agriculture. Technology causes inefficient jobs to die off and better more advanced ones to replace them. Look at all of the lights out factories in this country. You can fight for you horse drawn cart or move along with innovation.

This brand is worth less than zero. TE saw to that himself. When you're the 3rd or 4th eatery going in at the same location and you think 'this time will be different, we can make it work'. Please, burn this company with fire and let it die once and for all.

An example would be the cotton gin and how it eliminated the need for the hard labor aspect of picking cotton. The bike industry is hopefully headed for it's cotton gin type of technological leap soon.

Industrial automation is the next big shift in technology. Jobs just change. When it comes to welding and milling again raising prices force technological innovation. We went to Asia for many aspects of manufacturing due to lower labor costs. If we can replace those jobs with automated systems the end result will be higher quality and cost less to produce.

'Democrats, or Republicans' was not mentioned. I hope you do see the relevance of the cost of cycling goods to a cycling site though. News that will most likely affect everyone should just be seen as that, news, not bias. Plus, this article had good arguments...more
