Just heard Josh Portner of Silca (formerly of Zipp) talking about the Cargo Cult of Stiffness. Interesting listen as always, stiffness comes in at ~54m. Spoiler: it sounds like their testing...

You'll want to keep an eye on the chainstay length/tire size combo. If you have really short (~420-425mm) chainstays, the AXS FD battery doesn't leave a ton of room for wider tires. 35-38mm or...

Absolutely! I came up during the '90s anodizing boom and after a decade of red or black being the primary options it's nice to have fun with it again. SRAM's XX1 cassette and chain can be had in an...

New here, thought I'd share a favorite photo of my current bike. Hunt did us a few sets of wheels with rainbow-anodized Ti Nitride spokes to match our headset spacers. Simple, reliable Force1...

While the placebo effect is real and shouldn't be ignored, it seems like the consensus at this point is that any actual energy losses to frame flex (within reason) are minimal to nonexistent. Modern...

I love the Vittoria Terreno dry- not the best mud tire but sheds it quickly and is smooth & fast rolling on the road with a durable casing. The Terrene Elwood has a little more rubber and a slightly...

We spec the ENVE G Series fork on our (US) builds and don't have any experience with the V+1 so can't compare directly. But with that said, I would say that the G Series does a good job at balancing...

From the BB to about 6in down the chainstay is actually a single hollow-cast titanium piece that has the internal cable routing built in- it's the thing folks get most excited about when they see a...

We've tried them and the RoadLink/RoadLink DM/GoatLink/GoatLink11 don't significantly improve the GRX RD-RX812 performance on an 11-46. Would love to sell you one, but wouldn't feel great about being...

More on the Atalaya

sweetspot,

Thanks for finding the Atalaya! Part of what allows the 420mm chainstay is the cast titanium BB/chainstay assembly. It's dropped on the drive side to clear the chainring and provide...
