When he's not racing, Neko is constantly testing and evaluating components. With his high level of bike knowledge and experience, he's able to dissect the differences in each and every component and geometry tweak, unlike us mere mortals. He's been nice enough to write up some excellent articles and reviews for us, check them out below!

O-Chain devices are becoming increasingly common on World Cup downhill and EWS race bikes. Nearly half of the field in any given World Cup DH final are using O-Chain devices. So, what do they do and how do they work?

5Dev came to market around this time last year with a new crankset, the Trail/Enduro Crankset that uniquely has large voids cut in the crank arms. These cranks are eye catching with their unique design and CNC finish, but more than just the look, these cranks have a sound design behind them.
