In this article I will review the Cyclotech Endura Centerlock Disc Brake Rotor, which I’ve purchased through mtb-brakepads.nl (together with Cyclotech Brake Pads and some small parts). I was tipped by this brand and local shop by long term cycling friend Philipp Gante.
Fibre Lyte Gear Mech Plate is a cool tuning part, available for all major Shimano, Sram and Campagnolo rear-derailleurs. Gear Mech Plates from Fibre Lyte are available for road bikes and mountain bikes.
In this article I will show you the design and installation of the FL Gear Mech Plate for Shimano Dura Ace 9000 rear derailleur.
In this article I will review the Selle Italia X-LR Air Cross TM Superflow S saddle that I use on the Scott Scale 925. I changed the brown Syncros saddle with the Selle Italia because it is very close to the Fizik Arione Versus Braided saddle I’m riding on my Canyon Ultimate CF SLX road-bike.
The Air Cross Superflow in size S is a cyclocross specific saddle with a downward pointing saddle nose tip, that is also very applicable for cross-country mountain biking.
In this article I will write down my thoughts about the Hope Tech Grip Doctor Bar End Protection plugs – Made in Barnoldswick, England. Hope is a well known high quality brand in the cycling industry with a wide range of high quality aftermarket components and accessories.
Mountain bike handlebars for a 29-er tend to have an internal diameter of around 22 mm. and the plugs that came with the ESI silicone grips have damaged relatively fast. And personally I don’t like the ESI branding on the black and blue set-up of the Scott Scale 925.
In this article I will share my thoughts about the Tune Schraubwürger Seatpost Clamp on my Scott Scale 925, that replaced the stock Syncros quick release seatpost clamp.
Tune has always been a high quality German brand for the weightweenies, but here it is the combination of weight, price-point and engineering.
In this article I will share my view on the DT Swiss Tubeless Ready Rim tape that I used to replace the stock rim tape on my Scott Scale 925 mountain bike, that was damaged around the valve hole in the Syncros X-25 rim.
In this article I will review the CEMA Bearing Interlock BB86-BB92 Bottom Bracket. I will share my experience from installation, the interlock design and compare it with my C-Bear BB86-BB92 press fit bottom bracket experiences.
Some of my thoughts will cover design, quality, what is in the box and many more angles. In a separate review I will have a deeper look into the CEMA tools for Interlock Bottom brackets.
In this article I will review the Elite Rocko Carbon water bottle cages for my Scott Scale 925 mountain bike. While on my road bike I run a pair of lightweight Tune Wasserträger 2.0 Carbon Bottle Cages, I wanted to have a bottle cage with high retention, so I’ve searched for some of the bottle cages used by mountain bike professionals as well as the water bottle cages used in Paris-Roubaix. The result of my quest is a set of Elite Rocko Carbon bottle cages.
This article is a short review of the CEMA Bearing Full Ceramic pulley wheels. I will try to compare these against stock Dura Ace 9000 pulley wheels, but I don’t have a friction facts laboratory setup at home. So it will be an in-depth look and feature comparison.
In this article I will share my thoughts on the Carbonice Stummer Eugen chain catcher and compare it with the Canyon chain catcher that I’ve used over the past couple of years. Both chain catchers differ significantly in used material, assembly on your road bike and for the weightweenies among us the chain catcher weight.
