2017 SRAM Eagle X01 Drivetrain – Long Term Review - Jan. 6, 2017, 10:13 a.m.

Please, PLEASE take Tim up on his offer to ride with him in the North Shore. I'd love to hear about it on this site 🙂

New Life for old XX1 or XO1 Cassettes - Nov. 21, 2016, 1:13 p.m.

Thanks @bradsedola:disqus and @vikbanerjee:disqus for explaining Economies of scale~ I actually was unaware of that and now understand. Who knew I'd learn more about business through mountain biking? hehe

New Life for old XX1 or XO1 Cassettes - Nov. 18, 2016, 5:43 a.m.

what I don't understand is how companies like Oneup and Wolftooth are still charging $90 for one single granny cog when you can buy a Shimano XT 11-46t full cassette for $70-$80 bucks.

I currently have have 2 cassettes the XT 11-40t and the XT 11-46
I'd like to upgrade the 11-40 to a 11-44 or 11-45 but when I went to go find a cog they were charging more for one cog than a full cassette.

Looks like I'm going to get the Shimano XT 11-42 for $70 that's being frugal too.

What The Hell Happened to 26? - March 2, 2016, 4:17 a.m.

Going from 26″ to 27.5″ isn't the hugest change. Side by side they are slightly different in size. If you just bought a bike that can only handle 26″ then like this article says you can still find 26″ rims. Best part is, they're selling MAD MAD MAD cheap these days.

Whole Easton wheelset I saw online a month ago was going for $500
.that's $250 per fully assembled wheel! To those who are GOF's stop bitch'n you still have options and they are much cheaper. Infact even 26″ tires are cheaper.

One Last Run with Kelly McGarry - Feb. 16, 2016, 6:19 p.m.

Lucky guy to have the chance to ride with the Kiwi, take pictures and own a Scott Gambler.

Thanks for sharing the video. Still can't believe I won't be seeing him slay trails anymore 🙁
