Deity 35mm Handlebar Range Compared - July 29, 2020, 6:41 a.m.

I remember a while ago reading a PB article about hand vibration and that if you measured the vibration at the grips, and compared it to occupational health and safety requirements, then the amount of vibration at your hands can easily be worrisome.

Bontrager's Steerer Tube Mounted BITS - July 23, 2020, 6:51 p.m.

I have to admit, with an 11s XT derailleur I do miss the 2mm hex.

A Specialized SWAT tool is remarkably similar to this, but $120 CAD.

The Problem with "Tribe" - July 21, 2020, 1:32 p.m.

Hey, let's take it easy on Bretts.

The Problem with "Tribe" - July 21, 2020, 6:27 a.m.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not arguing that Yeti deserves to be celebrated for their decision, but I do want to defend the idea of what happened, and encourage it to happen more frequently. This could be a model of the way to move forward to deal with similar issues in the future (not the model, but a model).

1 - Think about what you are doing.

2 - Listen to people that might be impacted by your actions.

3 - Adjust accordingly.

The Problem with "Tribe" - July 21, 2020, 4:58 a.m.

I have to admit I cringed every time I saw news about a Yeti Tribe gathering. We shouldn't cringe when reading marketing material.

Any suggestions on how to bring up the idea to my supervisor at work that impromptu meetings can't be called pow wows?

I find people can be very unintentional with their words, without thinking of the greater social context associated with what they're saying.

My Favourite Push-On Grips - July 13, 2020, 7 a.m.

I picked up a bunch (10 pairs?) of Chesters for maybe $2/pair when they got discontinued and were on sale. Constantly having fresh grips feels luxurious, and my broom handles are vastly improved with the used rubber coming off the bike!

I have been running them totally dry inside, just using the air nozzle on the compressor to seat them in place on the bars. Curious about this paint thing, in case I'm missing something.

Lock that Sh*t Up - July 9, 2020, 8:08 p.m.

I got a Ziplok or something very similar to it at MEC. It's a combo, not a key.

Specialized SWAT? Tool is $120 CAD and no tapping ...

Park Tool Sliding T-Handle Torx Set - June 17, 2020, 1:14 p.m.

If your Park p-handles are worn on the flat ends, a few minutes with a flap disc on a grinder can bring them back to life. Just knock a bit of material off the end, and then gently add a little chamfer to the rough edges.

T30 for Shimano crank bolts! Or, T27 if someone tried a T25 in there already

SRAM Launches new 52-tooth Eagle Drivetrains - June 11, 2020, 1:48 p.m.

Do they have to do the review 10x?!

Marzocchi Bomber Z1 Coil 29" 160mm - June 9, 2020, 6:42 a.m.

I replied with a duplicate comment about this!

When Is A Semi-Slick Too Damn Quick?! - May 30, 2020, 6:53 a.m.

In my experience, rim width makes or breaks the Slaughter and other SS tires. Too wide and the side knobs are dragging,  and you might as well run a DHR. Too narrow and they don't get a good opportunity to grip before you're leaned too far over.

The Key to the Best Ride Ever - May 29, 2020, 7:14 a.m.

That front wheel washing on the rock made me uncomfortable, then relieved. Mission accomplished.
