    I run a 1x10 drivetrain because it's far less unpredictable given my riding preferences.

    I'd love to have more gears, though. Can't wait until we finally get introduced to gearbox technology at...

    The Titec clamp that came on my Homegrown had a tendency to slip on occasion. That and I could never get the nose down quite far enough. It had a variation of the two-bolt system in that it had a...

    Equal parts build quality and angular adjustment of the seat clamp, IMO. Infinitely adjustable clamps are not always the bestest route, since they are prone to slippage. The best seatpost I've...
