Riding the 38mm 2021 RockShox Zeb - July 7, 2020, 10:16 a.m.

Cam, can you, Pete, or Andrew comment on how the Zeb stacks up against the Fox 38 and the Manitou Mezzer?

It seems like the heavy duty fork market is heating up, would be interested in seeing some comments re: performance on the >36mm stanchion club.

Close Your Eyes & Cut Your Bars - March 27, 2020, 10:38 a.m.

I went to 800mm wide bars early, back in 2008 when the only option was the FSA Gravity Light Super Wide.  I was getting my bike serviced at North Shore Bike Shop and Matt noticed that my controls were right up against my grips and the outside of my grips were word because my hands were hanging off. He suggested that I try these wide bars that he had on order. Haven't really gone much narrower since.

I'd be willing to try something narrower again, maybe in between the 740s I'd been running in early 2008 and the 780mm-800mm that I've been running since.

It doesn't scream Vancouver like a GLS63 with a North Shore rack on the back.

Developing the Chromag Dagga Pedal - Jan. 21, 2020, 10:13 a.m.

The lack of mention or discussion about the rumored Chromag full suspension frame in this article is an opportunity missed.

Showers Pass Syncline CC Jacket - Jan. 10, 2020, 11:38 p.m.

Andrew, I picked up a Dianese Atmo-lite 3L Jacket during their Black Friday sale for $70US. Amazing.  I’ll admit the watch window is useless. Otherwise breath ability and waterproofedness rate high.

Dave reviewed it in 2016 https://nsmb.com/articles/dainese-altitune-collection/

If you shop the sales, there is no reason that you can’t get a good jacket from a few seasons ago for an affordable price.

Pete, it also looks like the XT build kit, if at the same discount as the NX would be the build to get.

The price on the Alchemy site is coming up at 4899 with a free Enve bar upgrade.

e*thirteen LG1r Carbon Crankset Review - July 30, 2019, 1:58 p.m.

AJ, using the RF SixC crank as a reference point, would you say that that they are as reliable, more reliable or less reliable? Thanks!

Raaw Bikes Now Available in Canada & USA - July 22, 2019, 8:50 a.m.

That's $2,583.42 CAD at this morning's FX according to Google, which puts it in line with the Knolly Fugitive LT assuming $400 in shipping/import/other costs, pre-tax.

Fugitive LT is $3,000 CAD IIRC.

Nothing more fun that watching your friends take a swim in that pond.

2019 Santa Cruz V10 29er - June 27, 2019, 8:16 a.m.

Head angle; 63.3° in Low, that's almost as slack as some Enduro bikes.

FSA Afterburner Crankset - March 29, 2019, 11:59 a.m.

B. your home shop is a bit more advanced than most of us, and your resourcefulness is beyond mine when it comes to bike rigging. I won't be taking your advice, thank you.

Inside The Official FOX Canada Service Centre - March 26, 2019, 4:37 p.m.

Article synopses: There is no lack of facial hair at Fox Canada.

Chromag Recluse Wool Jersey - March 7, 2019, 1:23 p.m.

How is the pilling?

Only cycling wool that I've found not to pill is IO Merino but they no longer have any Canadian stockists, everything is online now so I can no longer test fit.

Magura MT Sport Lever Blades - March 6, 2019, 11:17 a.m.

I recently picked up a pair of MT Trail Carbon brakes for an upcoming build and I'm considering the HC3 levers. Any thoughts on the HC3 lever Andrew?
