A friend built this from a normal tubeless tire and a 26" conti road racing tube tire. It Worked seemingly well. So it's not that new, and you can get it for a fracture of the price.

After seeing so many racers (especially Gwin) fall victim to flatting this year, I expect to see/hear about lots of these on wheels next year regardless of sponsorship. Simple flats have destroyed results...more

Shimano was building their derailleurs with the offset pulley design back years ago when Sram still made nothing but bad Gripshifters. The question is why they went away from it, I am sure they had a reason, and of course they never intended their 10-speed derailleurs...more

The OneUp Cage has certainly borrowed from what the SRAM 11 speed Type 2 derailleurs are doing, but it brings that same functionality to the folks who already have or prefer Shimano 10 speed drivetrains with a single chainring.

Hey Fox or any lurking experts: are high-speed rebound and low-speed rebound really speed-sensitive, or is this terminology just used as an analogy with HSC and LSC, which the public presumably understands or feels comfortable with? I'm having trouble picturing a graph of rebound...more

I'd love to give this bike a try. Loved the Sight stock and dig your mods! Nicely done.

The Photogs could make a bit of side money by filming the stages on the recon days and selling them to team managers in dark alleyways. Is that legal, or have the authorities already thought of that? Power to the clapped-out! Go Tea Boy!
