Typical Moni… er Terrafirma. Lots of trash talk and nothing to back it up.

Kali Protectives: Deep Coverage Maya Helmet - Jan. 20, 2015, 10:28 a.m.

How can this helmet be considered enduro when the promo vid/pic seem to depict (correct me if I'm wrong) the oh-so-obsolete 26″ wheel??? HM? I need answers.

Paints a nice picture, but in my experience most of those people would be flipping out or at least giving a dirty look when they see a mountain bike anywhere in or around mountains in europe.

EVOC Bike Travel Bag - June 24, 2014, 4:07 a.m.

Looks interesting, but $550??? Does it fly itself to the destination as well? I think there's a reason why mostly sponsored athletes and journalists use these things.

How long did it take to pack the bike inside? I can do a bike with gear in a bike box in about an hour, depending on what needs to go in. What does the bag itself weigh? Generally the limit is 23kg total, so if the bag weighs substantially more than a box, then you're losing out on some extra carrying capability.

Also, those carts at the airport will typically carry two bike boxes and some luggage, and are available in the parking area.

A couple of questions:
1. I've read elsewhere reviewers saying that in a bikepark situation they experienced what they could only think of as "bushing bind." When really digging in in a rutty berm. Any signs of this?
2. Creaking. We all know over the last who knows how many years certain single crowns have been developing creaks. Any issues as of today?

Honestly, it sounds like there is little advantage. Everything you described in this article was exactly what happened to me the last time I rode my normal mountain bike in some unexpected snow.

North Shore Billet Variable Tooth Ring - Jan. 21, 2014, 10:14 a.m.

Any thoughts on how something like this would perform on a fully, without a clutch derailleur? Do I need to keep my chainguide? This has been going through my mind for a while now… I believe I could survive with a 30 tooth up front.

I just felt like it was more telling a story about the testers first world plight of not his parts not matching. Maybe it's just a different format of review and I'm not used to it, but it just felt empty.
Also clamp size should have been listed.
