Added reply in a thread Would you buy a power meter for MTB? - Help me with my thesis 11/14/2018 10:18 AM

I have one- I got it to train with for enduro racing. I remove it off the bike for racing (it's heavy and fragile) and during the off-season (don't want to know how fat/weak I am haha). Features I'd like: -good battery life -consistent measurement/accuracy ... more »

'Democrats, or Republicans' was not mentioned. I hope you do see the relevance of the cost of cycling goods to a cycling site though. News that will most likely affect everyone should just be seen as that, news, not bias. Plus, this article had good arguments...more

Looks like a pig on the jumps and is very slow in corners. Hard pass.

That flex might not be the worst thing... Save some fatigue and vibration. Remember the first gen Fox 40's? They were too stiff. Fox made the second gen ones flexier on purpose.

I think a lot of turns are too tight and pedalling uphill with a dual crown sucks (knees hit the upper crown).

I'd say teocali is better than Dr. park, but either one is good. Better views and camping on Teocali IMO.

For sure it was a pinch flat. Not sure which is better- DD+Cushcore vs DH tire. I usually choose based on traction. DH tire has more grip & rolls slower, DD tires are usually faster rolling. Also think about repairing vs run flat. You can run flat ... more »

This looks interesting, but I don't know of anyone using them and 500-600 grams each: http://www.mrwolf.bike/smartmousse/

Easily. I pinched a Maxxis DD aggressor with cush core- the hole was big enough for my pinkie finger to pass through. The same impact would have likely cut a DH tire. I think a cush core with some kind of hard plastic hula hoop core (foam around it) ... more »

remove your tire and straighten the wall of the rim with an adjustable (crescent) wrench. OR if it's not leaking- just leave it alone.

I'm all for e-bikes if the rider has some sort of injury, disability, or any other legitimate reason that makes the e-bike his or her only option to get out there and rip some trails. But all I see on my local trails (which are closed to e-bikes) are completely healthy and...more
