what happens when you put your bike in the bed of a pickup for shuttles? or if your bike carrier supports the bike by the downtube. I had issues crushing the shift cable because of this.

it might just be a schrader valve with the core removed... you could cut one off a tube and leave a little rubber flange+hot glue for sealing- the air pressure will just make it seal better. I did that to make a boxxer top cap have an air fitting lol. ... more »

He should just put some dry ice and water in that bottle. NO pumping required!

I have one as a second bike... it's a fun (almost) zero-maintenance bike. It makes boring trails entertaining again. Also I run rear brake only so it's pretty much a 29" BMX.

This is the first time in a while that I've been surprised by how expensive something wasn't. Let's hope it becomes a trend.

So that's what carbon wheels needed, a higher price.

34 is probably fine for Texas... if you need lower gear for trips to elevation you can always buy a 30t later. I run a 34t with a 36-11 cassette in Colorado, but I end up swapping to a 30t for long/high elevation rides.

Who the hell cares about efficiency? Raw, hot, nasty, burning POWER.

I think current flat pedals with proper concavity and pins, coupled with "stealth" rubber or similar high friction soles have closed the gap considerably.

The above test didnt prove anything in my opinion. The clipless vs flats debate is just too...more

One of those is hanging up somewhere in Trek HQ... I heard the fairings and a skinsuit on the rider made a significant difference in the wind tunnel, but added weight and weird looks caused the team not to use it. Interesting for sure. I'd like to see ... more »

Only have one, but it's lasted most of summer and still going pretty strong (on the front). Rubber is harder than the DH tires, but not as hard as the normal Bontrager xc stuff. Corner knobs are actually wearing, not undercutting and getting floppy like Maxxis. Casing is good too. I'll be buying a lot when they come out.
