The 2022 Santa Cruz Bronson CC XO1 AXS - Sept. 19, 2021, 12:11 a.m.

For that price you should also get a massuese and butler included!

Exclusive First Ride: The 2022 We Are One Arrival - Aug. 4, 2021, 4:37 a.m.

It is great that a small company has achieved this, but surely carbon shouldn't be the future?

Ride Concepts TNT 2.0 Shoe Review - July 21, 2021, 4:18 p.m.

So I've not found that the powerlines don't get too wet, in the wet.  They are definitely slimmer than the TNTs.

Ride Concepts TNT 2.0 Shoe Review - July 20, 2021, 2:38 a.m.

I'm running powerlines with DST 4.0 and they are lasting well on my Daggas. I think 5-10's stealth soles would have shredded to bits by now.  RC have a found a good balance for me.

Introducing the All-New Transition Patrol - June 2, 2021, 2:19 p.m.

Gage, things change.  I've never been let down by a Transition bike.  They always improve on what they built before.  I'm looking forward to their e-sentinel coming out later this week ;-)

Owen Foster's Mix-Wheeled Commencal Clash "Warpig" - April 20, 2021, 3:54 a.m.

Really nice bike.  Lots of well thought out kit on it.

I'm gonna go crazy and comment on what's in the article!  The garmin Instinct Solar will probably be my next watch.  My Fenix 3 seems to take hours to charge now and doesn't last as long as it did.  It does everything I need and has an MTB option that is not on my Fenix. Great choice!

What Makes a Quality Bike Light - Oct. 1, 2020, 9:30 p.m.

Someone asked me how bright their new lights should be.  I told them not to go too bright as it takes the fun and mystery out of the night ride.  

We all had the bulb and water bottle lights back then and my memory is that it made the rides mores fun and sketchy!

Budget Flats : Race Face Chester Pedals X Giro Jacket II Shoes - Sept. 21, 2020, 11:33 p.m.

Yes stock pins, with the pin closest to the axel removed.  I bought the Ions because they were reduced a fair bit, so it wasn't a scientifiic choice.  I did test Five Tens for them about five years ago (pre kid) because I wrecked them so fast.  Obviously not on Daggas back then, probably on boomslang pedals with very needly pins. 

I would still say that weight is a thing, because the harder sole shoes like Ion, are good for me on nylon pedals too, like the oneup, which preceded the Daggas.  I still wrecked five tens on those!

Budget Flats : Race Face Chester Pedals X Giro Jacket II Shoes - Sept. 21, 2020, 3:34 a.m.

I think weight of the rider matters too.  If you're heavy like me 100kg+ five tens WILL wear out very quick (holes through the sole in 60hrs) and can be too sticky for any type of foot correction.  I run Chromag Dagga and older Ion Scrub Amps (i think).  My weight keeps them planted on the pedal, but I don't have to lift right off to adjust my foot.

Tannus Launches New Tire Inserts - Aug. 8, 2020, 1:54 a.m.

Looks like you won't be able to top up yours sealant through the valve anymore them though.

The Crankworx Summer Series is Here - July 27, 2020, 9:34 p.m.

This sounds great, considering what's going on.  Good luck to all involved.

AJ's Packless Carry Solution - May 5, 2020, 4:24 a.m.

good tip on the electrical tape.  I might look at oneup's pump as well in the future..

AJ's Packless Carry Solution - May 5, 2020, 12:59 a.m.

I run an edc in the head tube with co2 attached.  Blackburn tyre plug thing, which has a strap and that wraps another co2 and head (already loaded) and a wolftooth pack pliers.  No tube because of cushcore in the back and rimpact in the front.  No been caught out...........yet.

I wonder if this is down to the fact that mountain bikers put in all the effort to get access and build the trails and then the e-bikers turn up and enjoy the spoils of their hard work?  Understandably annoying. 

I know a (now) e-biker who builds and keeps a lot of the trails in Surrey (the original one in England) running.  Does that mean meat powered riders shouldn't be using them?
