This really had to be a money grab, going with TRP brakes (which i've heard of for the first time now), considering he DNF-ed in Leogang at the world champs due to brake problems. And wasn't that one of the reasons for him going with Sram drivetrain ... more »

Ooh, can't wait for that. Will you post the update here as well, so i'll get an e-mail notification about it?

The vertical impact is the same (the vertical speed component gets the same acceleration in any case, regardles of horizontal velocity), the difference with a faster speed is that you could get into a situation where both wheels hit the ground much quicker ... more »

Bah, can't read... I was going to say to look at your last option, i've had good experience with the Switch hubs (only the freewheel outer bearing got stiff quite quickly, but the sealing wasn't that good on mine and they come with SKF bearings now - ... more »

Preaching to the choir, if i could, i'd have tons of cars. But i think, even making something like 500k a year, i'd be scared for the first few years to blow the money on something as 'fleeting' as a car. Only if it was clear that the money was well ... more »

If we're talking about the video, yeah, most certainly a Porsche, the new (991) GT3. If it's his own, he must be making some serious cash for the past few years. The MSRP for the ordinary GT3 is 130k USD but with the current prices it's easy to think ... more »

Point there. But yeah, appart from the freehub Sram's GX offering is not that much more expensive from Shimano's as it has used to been (X1 and X01).

QFT Jeff, QFT. Though, as you said, the shifter and the derailleur are expensive (35 € for the GX shifter, 90 € for the der.), the whole kit (shifter, derailleur, cassette and chain) can be had for 230 € on bike-components for the GX group. Okay, you'd ... more »

Isn't the point of the DW link patent that the line through the top link crosses the bottom link (between the bearings) at full stroke? Only one of the three DW link bikes in the video does that. Wouldn't that effectively invalidate the patent? Has it been amended?

Any publication worth it's salt will not publish any confirmed, but still not public news. In some cases (IT industry) there are strict NDAs in place preventing that, but any gun jumping and publishing of rumors will probably blacklist that publication. ... more »
