Buffalo has no local shred heros. The MTB scene in this town is super weak

I have very mixed feeling towards e*thirteen. I have respect for their problem solving ways, and anytime they release a new product, it always seems like a good idea; it agrees with my armchair engineering and I normally say "hey, that's a great idea!"

On the trail, or in...more

I've got 2 buddies who have e*thirteen cranks. Both bragged about the rad Tank powering interface when they got them. Now it's more like whimpering when they're both constantly tightening their cranks, which have come loose yet again.

Before someone gets in on me with the ol' "well if they'd torque them properly" or whatever else... 1 of the 2 is one of the best mechanics I know (worked in a few shops in my day). He's meticulous, and followed the installation directions to a T. The other guy? Not so much... Both had problems.

Like you said, an idea that seems mint on paper, but doesn't translate without issues to the field.

Or people hate you?

I got the math joke though.

I can only assume the neg props are a result of folks not realizing going from 11 to 12 speeds is a 9.09% increase in the number of cogs. Math jokes are a bad idea, I guess!

It's at least 9.09% better than the previous drive trains... right?

It really doesn't get much more classic than Deemax, does it?

"coming it at 507g with a 32t direct mount ring. This compared to the other offerings on the market is very competitive, coming in roughly 40g lighter than another key manufacturer's carbon crank"

Really?? More like 60 grams heavier than the benchmark!




Better options abound....

85% Trail, 10% DH, 5% DJ. Just got a new DJ this last year (after mine was stolen a few years back, those bastards), so I got a few trips to Ray's (Cle) in this winter. I'll be taking it out into the streets once the weather breaks, happy for that number ... more »

I'm super jelly of you. Jerk... with your close, expansive trails.

Now it's 35 minutes to my usual trails (Hunter's Creek, NY), 85 minutes to a small lift access hill near me (Swain, NY). I grew up 10 minutes from the Finger Lakes Trail in Letchworth State Park, NY... that was pretty awesome, now it's 75 minutes away. ... more »

Unless the moto KTM starts making a bike (which seems unlikely), you're right, they're not directly linked. At the same time, moto and DH are so closely related... especially if they've already got him on their moto bikes anyway, why not put down some ... more »
