The best thing to do would be use a torque wrench to install your pedals to prevent over tightening them.

Apple?  Or devices in general?  Why do you need a 'next' device?  

(still using Ipad 3 and wife just upgraded her Iphone 4S to a broken screen Huwai chinese spyphone that she fixed herself)

* a two by four hammer gently tapping works just as well

mine was the same!  here's a catalog to nostalgia - it already had "Ideal Sizing, where contact points are fit to the riders anatomy"!

1991 Purple Rocky Mountain Fusion.  It had SIS shifting, where the shifter pods clicked into each gear!

Would make a perfect brewery bike now.

Lol, I didn't build that teeter for DH racerheads.   #trailsforall?

Have you seen the black sparkly rainbow coloured Liv Hail? I’m jealous.

So what happens to resin only rotors when you put on metal pads?

OTTOLOCK Cinch Lock - Dec. 17, 2018, 12:30 p.m.

I totally agree a lock is needed anywhere...  Abus Mini or Kryptonite Evolution Lite for short term, visible locations. Can't be cut with tinsnips but can be defeated in a much more visible manner.    Seeing those tinships slice through it makes ottolock a no-go for me.

My Kryptonite Evolution Lite weighs 2.6 lbs, small enough for a pack.  We have taken these touring in small town Austria with no issues  (not likely a thief hotspot).

MTB Money: Sea-to-Sky Economic Survey - Sept. 9, 2018, 4:21 a.m.

“Mountain biking” in the corner of Austria that I’m currently in consists of pedalling on logging roads, gravel paths or poaching hiking trails through cow pastures.   There’s also a bike park that has one long flow trail witha ski lift where the DH crowd hangs thier Leatt braces. 

However, the top of the mountain here is +1300 m vertical from our house and has a patio restaurant (read beer on tap) and 100+ km of Alpine (capital Alps) views on top from 1800 m elevation  

I have a new appreciation for e-bikes. The conventional pedal up would not have left the energy to complete the 38 km ride that climbed the equivalent of Lions Gate Bridge to Brockton Peak on Seymour, then bombing down Mushroom trail or Incline.

In terms of mountain bike specific trails, sea to sky region is heaven on earth.

None of these do-hickies stop my tires from losing air when they sit in the basement.  That's what I'd like to improve on tubeless.

North Shore Billet Variable Tooth Ring - Jan. 21, 2014, 7:13 p.m.

I rode a RF N/W 30T with an old XT derailleur on a hardtail for a while. Occassionally dropped a chain (like 1 in 5 rides when it got bouncy.

Go for a 10 Speed clutch, not just for the chain retention, but for the increased gearing of 36T on the rear, and a quiet drivetrain. The beauty of a quiet drivetrain is often missed in these reviews.

How is the X-sync different than NW??
