Endura Singletrack II Rain Jacket - Feb. 12, 2019, 4:03 p.m.

Long sleeve that converts into a T-Shirt itsh kind of thing.  Not quite a vest but seems pretty good.

"Arcteryx Nano Jacket", the Nano jacket is by Patagonia.

Unless I'm missing something. Also, what Cooper said.

Go see James at SuspensionWerx, they sorted out my Ohlins suspension quickly and with great success.

I should have read your review a bit closer, my apologies, thanks for the clarification Andrew.

e13 TRS+ 12-Spd Upgrade Reviewed - Sept. 14, 2018, 9:07 a.m.

I just noticed that they've released a new 12 speed cassette. Price is pretty competitive for the weight, weighs less (336g claimed) than XX1 (360g) and costs in between GX and X01 at 279USD.

Might be my next cassette once the X01 Eagle on my bike wears out.

Manitou and Hayes Plotting a Comeback - Aug. 30, 2018, 12:50 p.m.

I have it on my Hayes Prime, which have been problem free for the past two seasons.

Fox Goes Electric with the Live Valve System - Aug. 28, 2018, 11:01 a.m.

Because you spent $10,000 on your bike last year, and you're yearning for something fancy but replacing a bike that you've only ridden 10 times doesn't quite seem right, so upgrading it for the low, low cost of US $3250 seems entirely reasonable.

Mavic XA Pro VS. e*thirteen TRS Race SL Carbon Wheels - June 28, 2018, 9:25 a.m.

You have the warranty links reversed.

12 Speed For the Masses - Introducing SRAM Eagle NX - June 14, 2018, 11:02 a.m.

Just noticed that Sunrace makes a 12x cassette that is HG compatible and weighs 586g, so a bit lighter than NX.

12 Speed For the Masses - Introducing SRAM Eagle NX - June 14, 2018, 9:10 a.m.

Is 615g heavy for a cassette?

Current Shimano XT 11-46 is 437g.  Is that 178g going to change much?

Touring Shimano's "Intelligent" Factory in Japan - May 24, 2018, 8:57 a.m.

Dude, I hear it has a 51 tooth 12th cog ----> mindblowing

I'm pretty sure that it will outperform Eagle at each price point and am now regretting going to Eagle because Shimano is life.

Öhlins TTX Trunnion Shock & RXF 36 Coil Updates - May 4, 2018, 10:07 a.m.

AJ, did you get the impression or was there a discussion on revised lowers for their 29er forks? The clearance on the crown is atrocious, it is easily the worst among high-performance options. I can't run a fender on mine (mostly because their direct mount fender seems to have been put on the back shelf) along with anything bigger than a 2.3 tire (RXF 36, 29 coil). 

I, for one, would upgrade the lowers if it were an option.
