Point taken. I’ve never clobbered one as I use their chainguide with skid plate. Love the oval.
Each to their own.
Graphene pads? If it is toxic you have to ask why?!

@teamrobot isn't wrong. Robots are never wrong.

What you are describing however isn't new, nor is it isolated to mountain biking. I have zero idea what the number is but my two cents worth of a guess is 95% of all the shit marketed to dudes never gets used near...more

To start I'm not sure Chris is arguing his theories and ideas are 100% right for every single kind of bike rider. Reading between the lines, you seem like someone who might be just as happy on a downsized single pivot or some kind of aggressive hard tail. Put...more
