Or you could just drill your rims and run Schraders, like the North Shore huckin', not give a f##kin', bar draggin' badass that you are.

Prestas are for road bikes.

From the sound of the video, I think the freewheel might still be ok. Gonna need gaffa tape and cable ties for the rest of it though.

hey, remember that one time when vital had 4 slideshows from PMB 2014 with 169 action/lifestyle photos and 48 audio clips interviewing the racers about their racing?

Thanks man! I'm not reviewing the michelins but I will say that I really really dig them. The front is super predictable and rolls reasonably fast for how meaty it is. Cornering is too notch. As for the rear, I just got it and have only done a few rides on it. That thing is...more

Sorry but the Ellsworth looks like it ran into a brick wall at speed. 1994 called, they want their geometry back.

Gweggy, what you're referring to is known as 'prior art' meaning that since the technology is already known, no further patents on the same technology are allowed. Also, patents I believe expire after 20 years, this is an agreement between the inventor and the public (government). SRAM might talk big about 'protecting their idea' but clearly prior art exists and the companies that licensed the tech shouldn't have (waste of money in my eyes). Hence RaceFace not giving a damn and making them anyway. Yes, SRAM deserves credit for applying the idea to MTBs, but RaceFace was able to take that idea and make it cheaper. Free market wins.

"with stops in Chili, Scotland, France, Italy (x2), USA, and Canada..."

Chili = spicy meat stew
Chile = country where the first 2014 EWS will be held.

This isn't his fault. He kept distance, speed was all right. She is totally under ''husband pressure'', she doesn't even know basics of trail riding, but it's important she is faster than you, because her kit is brand new.
