Added a comment about feature TECH TALK: Air Shocks Versus Coil Shocks, What's Better? 10/13/2017 9:13 AM

Actually a rising rate (rate of shock movement at constant rear axle movement) coincides with a falling leverage ratio. The force needed to compress the shock for 1 mm is higher at 1:1 ratio than is at 2:1 ratio. Which also means the shock moves faster at the 1:1 ratio given a constant axle movement than at the 2:1 ratio, since it moves 1 mm vs. 0,5 mm for every 1 mm movement of the rear axle. Therefore rate (of change).

I hope i didn't make a blunder in there

This. It must be horrible to have to come back from an injury like this, it must be even worse if you've done something similar before. In his case, a broken back.

I think it'd be nice if he returned to the sport in an even more visible role, after the injury he kind of went under the radar. Given this video we can see why and it's completely understandable. But yeah, it'd be nice to see the guy in the media in some way, it would be a massive beacon of hope for anyone coming back from an injury.

FYI, my Giant Reign (ALU 1) from 2015 is still going strong in the BB department, original bearings after 2 seasons (bought it in july 2015), _NO_ creaking. I did have to replace the suspension bearings for example. The BB bearings are still smooth for some reason.

I also saw Rude, but Kate Courtney is also there (Specialized XC racer). Don't Gwin and Rude also share a trainer or something?

Or just a Trek connection?

And the RS is 5600, not 4200.

I'd sell a kidney right now if i had to if the RS was obtainable for 4200 € new. Given current prices, 4200 for an X01 Eagle, EX1501 and Lyrik/Super Deluxe spec is a steal even with an aluminium frame (which i do prefer, but hey...).

Indeed it does. Though searching for it gave no useful results, seems like they don't make it anymore or what?

Thanks anyway!

Anybody know what the baggie in the Straps XL mount is? The combo looks perfect to stow away stuff (headbands, gloves, another sweatshirt maybe, your phone, etc.).

This is what i was thinking,t he chain is constantly being centered on the chainring, if you're not pedalling, it can get misaligned a bit, even more so at the bottom, it starts comming off and before you know it, it's completely off. With the rear end moving around, the same can happen in the front, if you don't have a chain guide.

But when pedaling, the chain is under tension and less likely to pop off, and that clutch looks like it was overtightend just for this demo
