Dear Uncle Dave: Where the hell is my new bicycle!? - Jan. 11, 2021, 12:27 p.m.

I agree with that method. I suspect the vendors that do the opposite attract more business from impatient people though.

What Makes a Quality Bike Light - Oct. 3, 2020, 7:59 p.m.

Not knowing if I was going to stick with night riding, I bought a couple lights off Amazon for less than $100. Found out I enjoyed it but when one of my lights died mid-descent on single track, found out I wanted quality lights instead. If your going to night ride, a good light is less than the cost of an ER room visit.

Min-Maxed-Metal: WTB KOM Light & Tough Rims - Sept. 4, 2020, 10:45 a.m.

Good to know about these.  Currently running Derby carbon rims that I picked up used for a cheap price, but I’ve broke one of the rims already. I got a crash replacement and steppes up to the DH layup. If I break another I’ll probably go back to aluminum. I did have a prior set of WTB i23 that developed cracking around the spoke holes. Have you taken any deeper inspections to the rims?

Living With A Lust For Luxury - July 20, 2020, 11:23 a.m.

I can’t justify MOST bling front hubs. That much money for something with cartridge bearings, no. But a King hub, in Pink, with fully serviceable and adjustable bearings...Yes please. ‘cause how can I show up at the trail head with pink rear King hub without the matchy matchy.

Aaron Gwin and His Season of Challenges - Sept. 13, 2019, 9:36 p.m.

A couple years ago when Gwin was really closing in on Minnaars win record, I thought how fortunate he had been to have pretty injury free seasons of racing. Minnaar has been around a long time, but has also had his share of injury plagued seasons. Gwin has plenty of racing in him, but I don’t know that he’ll have the dominance as in years past. Injuries take their toll physically and mentally.

Specialized Body Geometry & Finding the Right Saddle - March 25, 2019, 12:02 p.m.

For those who stopped using padded shorts, what was the advantage you noticed? What kind of underwear are you using?

Is a MIPS Equipped Helmet Really Necessary? - March 13, 2019, 9:07 p.m.

Until we get more transparency in the test results and what they mean ( not just pass or fail ), I gotta believe there’s too much marketing hype and emphasis on looks. MIPS means nothing to me if I can find a helmet that will transfer fewer G’s in a head on. I think that for the most of us, our decisions end up being based on looks, price, and marketing jargon then actual test results.

Dear Santa 2018 - Tim's List - Dec. 10, 2018, 12:13 p.m.

I miss the Breakout as well. Ran it front and rear on a Bronson and a 29er singlespeed. Really bummed when. They stopped making it.

SRAM Reverb Stealth B1 - Jan. 2, 2018, 11:17 p.m.

I just installed this post a week ago.  Unfortunately I needed to shorten the hose without a bleed kit handy.  Did my best, and everything works, but the post has a small of amount of vertical play accompanied by a tap noise that it didn’t have before I shortened the hose. I figured that I just need a remote bleed, but from your write up it sounds like it might be internal.  The only thing that changed was the hose shortening.  Any ideas?
