2021 Trek Slash 9.9 XO1 - Full Review - Feb. 22, 2021, 8:37 p.m.

Well, ordering a bike and having it arrive in June or July is most people's definition of super delayed. Mine too. I get antsy having to with for shipping to the store! I guess it's not as bad as some time in 2022 for the Slash 8s...

I don't know why they launched with the gucci shocks first. It must be limiting their appeal.

The price with the Fox seems very reasonable. Perhaps it's just a supply chain thing.

I tired to give this more than one upvote but could not.

Probably about $50

NSB 20mm hub that I had to take a grinder to to fit a Fox 36. Living in Calgary in my first ever 'real' winter, I'd grind till the lock ring got too hot to hold, then throw it in the snow to cool off.

Let's of reasons that hub will be handed down to my first born.

Should play side to side with his NSX work.

Apparently, yes.

I smash (ish) trails without inserts. And used to go through a rim and a half a year. After rebuilding my latest rear wheel, I was wincing every time I was ripping through some chunder. That wincing has disappeared now I have some wheels that get refreshed for free if I do something stupid.

I don't want my wheels to be heavier - inserts - just so I can run the tire pressure I want without worrying about blammo-ing my rim into a rock. I've tried riding more sensibly and that didn't work either. Maybe I'll try the new Tannus inserts as they don't seem too hefty, and they're on the shelf locally, but that is low down on the list now that I don't have to worry about dents.

Is this the same Tim Coleman that once revelled in wearing short socks instead of cool kid long dh bro socks? Asking for a friend.

2020 Rocky Mountain Slayer C70 - July 30, 2020, 2:26 p.m.

Is this going to be ANOTHER Slayer that the RM team don't race on? New RM Enduro team bike being teased on PB. Who is designing the Slayer that none of the team riders feel it's what they need?

EXT Releases Era Fork - July 30, 2020, 2:24 p.m.

Yeah, he'd have to mount it to a fixed gear bike with only 1 brake to have minned enough to put this fork on a bike and claim it was min-maxed.

Tell the tall guy to go away, and not come back unless he has bought a Geometron?

Bontrager's Steerer Tube Mounted BITS - July 24, 2020, 10:20 a.m.

Re: Comment about how tough it is to get out of the steer tube. I have resorted to sliding my glove through the little loop to get some force on it to pull it out. Can't do it with fingers. It's been in and out a half dozen times so far - twice on the trail. My bike has the SRAM UDH (8mm), which means that this tool, along with a CO2 and tube/lever stored in the DT and a spare hanger strapped to my seat rails has me covered for most likely on trail mishaps. Feels very liberating to go without ANY pack on the trail, but I've never been a kitchen sink kind of guy - in fact I've certainly carried LESS than this, even with a Camebak on!

Garmin on the TT, and now I don't carry my phone. I need to remedy that, as solo rides are a lot less comfortable without some way to call home, even if home knows which trails I'll be riding.
