Introducing the 2021 Trek Slash 9.9 XO1 - Sept. 4, 2020, 9:39 a.m.

I agree, that's trash. Id rather have an X01 cassette and GX shifter and mech. For that price it should all be X01!

Shimano SLX Drivetrain Review - Aug. 26, 2020, 10:01 a.m.

I started with SLX cassette, derailleur and shifter and migrated the derailluer and shifter to XT when the SLX clutch got sticky. The XT derailleur has noticeably less drag than the SLX and is a worthwhile upgrade IMO. I think the best budget setup would be SLX Cassette and Shifter with the XT Derailleur. I do also much prefer the ratios of the Shimano cassettes vs SRAM.

Fiveten and Adidas Reinvent the Flat Pedal Shoe - The Trailcross - Sept. 22, 2019, 3:52 a.m.

I'm super interested in these but I have concerns. 1. I have hobbit feet. EEE width with a narrow heel. Adidas shoes never fit me but 5.10s historically have fit well. Hoping these have wide forefoot. 2. I like the idea of a gaitor'd high top but if there's a full neoprene liner these will be hot AF. The low top will be the choice then but then I have a shoe full of crap after hike a bikes. Anxiously anticipating the launch.
