Added reply in a thread Middle of the road, All around tubeless rim? 11/25/2014 3:52 PM

I believe Stan's and WTB are old news. They've been recommended through word of mouth for years for little more reason than being recommended by many, when compared to the latest rims. Nice to be the first thing most people think of, when someone asks ... more »

Is that a new BOS fork? QR cam lever on the end of the axle looks newish. 29er?

Edit: oh, it's the Dizzy. Looks like it has more travel in the pic though.

Added reply in a thread Helmet vs bar mount headlights? 10/26/2014 12:42 PM

I tried to run bar mounted light by itself and took a blind boulder roller/drop and planted my front wheel where I last remember the good line was. I painfully discovered that the line was very recently re-made to be easier to roll with a neatly stacked ... more »

Chrome. It works now, for some reason after a PC restart.

Might just be me, but the arrow keys and Prev & Next button don't work. I have to click on the thumbs on bottom...

The comparison should pretty much be decided at the cost stage, between those. The Orbea is as expensive as carbon super bikes, yet this Capra is as expensive as alloy models... the real questions I have are, what else is there that really could contend with this for Bike of the Year, and when will it be available in the US, now that the 1st gen production bugs have been squashed.

From 1 min into the video and on, she's just floating... roots, ditches, holes, etc. just absorbed and pumped, riding smoothly through as if they weren't there, even in the corners. Seeing her go through the puddles, knowing there's sometimes greasy slime mold that grows in that stuff, and then get launched out made me worry about her slipping on roots there after. I watched it again just to watch her line choice and get a better look at the ground (interesting trail to have uphill braking bumps), and I was impressed. I even paused it a couple times to try and get a look at her expression... super composed, maybe even smiling in a few sections. Looks like she still would do well in DH racing, comparing this to some of the World Cup DH coverage I watched this year.

That's honestly the kind of trail I want to ride regularly. I want to be able to ride it like that too!

Fanny/back pack hybrid... I guess that's one way to eventually make fanny/hip/lumbar packs acceptable.

What's Shimano not doing right, that makes others try and put out a competing product? For some reason I want to say I'd take a Deore over this.

The driveside load-bearing cartridge bearing looks like it's practically in the center of the axle. That conical lip on the freehub body looks like it might make the freehub bearings carry some load too though, to keep the axle straight.

I don't understand how the shock works well being compressed at that angle; I imagine it suffers from bushing bind and accelerated wear (both leading to poor bump sensitivity). Looking at the fork, I know it can't be that bad, but when there's room to make it better, why not?

Sam Hill and Danny Hart going to Intense, paired up with Shaun Palmer... that would be the dream team. Heck, throw in Blenki and start making movies of them riding and I'll be throwing money at my screen.

I count at least 7 different colored anodized metallic bits in the rear suspension, including the dropouts and shock.
