Now that the usual pearl-clutchers have weighed in about crush washers and the dangers of lubricating with lubricants how about give it a go and report back how it went (crazy idea, I know). Let Spomer and I know if we get to stay off the kill list for another year.

How do you get a tan from straightening your bars?

Added a comment about product review Tested: 210mm Dropper Post v2 from OneUp Components 12/7/2019 4:25 AM

When I first installed my Oneup remote I didn’t like it, but it was my fault because I was comparing it to all the other remotes which are shaped like an up-shift paddle. After a couple hours I adjusted to it and I push it with the tip of my thumb now and love it. Now the other remotes feel huge, clunky, and require too much range of motion to activate.

Thanks! The reporting “journalism” is why we really do it. Sharing the stories and moments behind the moments with our chats is what keeps me doing this. The photos and captions are secondary. So thanks for listening (and looking)

Kiran MacKinnon (works for SC) using the same idea: shorter reach, backwards buzzworks and longer stays. He and I talked about it at Tamarack and he thinks it's all relation of body weight/position to BB. he also thinks longer reach is yanking riders too far forward these...more

477mm rear end, and interestingly they got rid of the Buzzworks headset to make the front end 8mm shorter. All my life I've heard how short chainstays corner better, but Greg seems to be doing fine on the limousine. I hope all the engineers at SC talk to each other, because...more

you obviously don't ride east coast very much. in the wet, there is a PROFOUND difference in maxxx grip vs maxxx terra. maxxx terra is like ice. when it's dry i think the differences are negligible. i actually just went to a continental der baron to finally get more front end traction...more

I’m more curious about the new stem that XC Gear is developing. It allows flex in all directions, not just vertically.

A little context to this may help. The GNCC series a couple years ago began allowing ebikes to be ridden to pre-ride the race course to scope lines etc. Before that, riders were allowed to ride the course on bicycles, but being a GNCC moto/atv course, ... more »
