I'm late to the party here, but that X-Shifter looks interesting! Great concept.
It's a shame that you can't stuff it into the downtube or similar to conceal the unit, with having only the outer cable exiting the chanstay like a full mechanical setup - that would look extra neat (however would carry a weight penalty for extra cable outer & inner...)

According to XShifter creator, Paul Gallagher, they have plans to work on exactly that with third party frame manufacturers and a slimmer XShifter revision.

So I was doing a tubeless dance when the tire blew off right in my hands. Probably because I went way overboard at 55 psi. No sealant got into my eyes, but I had to remove latex from hair and arms. Ears still ring a bit an hour afterwards. Curiously, Barbieri valve stem broke off, I have no idea why. Tomorrow I'll have to repeat tubeless procedure again and find a replacement valve.

@Klaster_1: Were you using a hand pump and pushing on the valve stem when this happened? Just wondering how that would happen if a floor pump or compressor with a flexible hose was being used.
In any case, your hair will clean up I’m sure. But what’s your ceiling look like?

No, the floor pump was detached, just a wheel in two hands. Probably sheared off by lateral forces from tire blowoff.

It had a nice splash of Orange 😁 But not much, since I only put 40ml in. Reminds me of condensed milk explosion, now that's a mess to remove.

By the way, Tune aluminium valve nut is lighter than Barbieri plastic nut. I expected the opposite. Gonna put tune nut on the remaining valve to negate weight gain.

Today I decided to install the new chainring. Something urged me to compare chainline between the two, KA Engineering (32t, oval, non-boost) should have 5.1mm offset and Garbaruk Melon 32t should have 5.3mm offset. Pretty negligible, right? Nope, KA Eng chaingring sits ~2mm more outboard. When compared to a 34t round non-boost RF chainring, which has 51mm chainline, Kaeng teeth center matches that of RF very closely. Looks like offset value is calculated differently by kaeng, when you subtract 2mm you get 49mm chainline, pretty close to 49.1mm of Garbaruk. This stuff is rather confusing to be honest.
