Added reply in a thread Do tire inserts mean it's time to rethink tire design? 11/17/2017 9:15 AM

This discussion is awesome. I want to steer everyone's ideas in a slightly different direction, though. Tire inserts already exist, but their purpose is to protect the tire from an impact where the casing is punctured by direct force on the rim. Essentially ... more »

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

Added reply in a thread SRAM Eagle chain longevity is impressive 11/10/2017 2:38 PM

As of right now there are no options to replace the aluminum 50t carrier cog separate from the entire cassette. For a while, they were making the 11spd carrier 42t aluminum cogs available separately. The techs at SRAM encouraged me that it is extremely ... more »

I am also a service manger at a shop and we have been seeing the same thing. The chains are impressively durable and resistant to wear. My issue has been that our current tools for measuring chain wear, electronic gauges, and all the other chain measuring ... more »

I gotta say Greg Minnaar does look more proportional on the 29er. As a 6'-3" clydesdale myself, who looks huge on a large Tues, proportionality does appeal to me...

Now that review makes far more sense (looking at the numbers) than the garbage review from Pinkbike.

One thing I would say is you guys need to get a midget tester who can ride the medium because I couldn't ride that thing with its 130mm head tube. Well maybe with a flat bar...more
