Old Tools and the Evolution of the Bicycle - Nov. 15, 2019, 8:12 a.m.

For the longest time a riding buddy used to carry two full length, 1.25" park headset wrenches for his Answer Manlytool FS because the Chris King headset wouldn't tighten correctly. Modern stuff works better.

I've got that fork on my beater! It's awesome.

Third Mountain Bike Fatality in Sea to Sky - Oct. 31, 2019, 12:31 a.m.

Yup. Been giving the kids a lot of extra hugs lately. Death has been out and about.

Nice idea for a series. Please keep it up.

Why they moved away from that system I have no idea.

Good to hear, when I get annoyed/bored I'll give them a full bleed and see if that helps.

Doesn't sound like you've had any of the wandering bite point issues. How'd you bleed them?

Occasionally that happens to me and I'm contemplating a full bleed as up to now I've just added fluid and hopefully removed air at the lever.

Sweating The Small Stuff At Crankworx 2019: Part 2 - Aug. 21, 2019, 12:28 a.m.

Enjoying this series. Thanks!

Ohhhh. I've been looking at this. Usually with side eyes so no one actually notices but I think it has merit. Maybe when the fanny pack (sorry can I say 'fanny' or is that one one of George Carlins' 'can't use on the internet' words?) dies or the urge to buy something overwhelms me.

Oakley DRT5 Helmet Review - June 7, 2019, 12:10 a.m.

Interesting. I so wanted this to fit my head as I'm an old Oakley MTB fanboy from along time ago..

Sadly I have two little spots on my head (horns growing in?) That just didn't work with this helmet. 

Looks awesome though. Have fun.

Shimano Introduces 12spd XT and SLX Groups - May 30, 2019, 8:59 p.m.

Wasn't that...more about where the blade was? It was further onboard? My issue is the blade is close to the grip so I tend to brush the grip when using it.

Shimano Introduces 12spd XT and SLX Groups - May 30, 2019, 9:31 a.m.

Yes, the dropper remote is too close to my grip. Needs to be able to drop it a bit. Though I have gotten used to it.

Yeti SB150 'Test Platform' Custom Build - May 21, 2019, 7:46 p.m.

Nice build. Be curious to see how you get along with XTR 12 speed. I've got a smattering on my older sb5 and am trying to convince myself it was worth it.

Wolf Tooth B-RAD Mini Roll Top Bag - May 17, 2019, 12:01 a.m.

I just can't go back to adding weight to my bike. So much rather carry it on my back and deal with it than on my bike that I've tried to lighten up. Having said that, I try to keep my pack light. Ounces equal pounds and pounds equal pain.

Giant TRX 0 Wheelset - May 10, 2019, 6:08 p.m.

Giant doesn’t have the cachet or cool that other guys have, like Santa Cruz and I’d say specialized as well. I’ve had access to Giant for almost twenty years and have owned one bike and a crap load of tubes back in the day...even today I’d be hard pressed to get excited about owning a Goant bike even though they're doing some  good stuff.
