Question about DT hubs: I've had some 350 freehubs fall off from the weight of the cassette, basically yard-saling the guts out onto the ground. All my experiences with 240s hubs never did this. I presumed that this was one of the cons of the 350s. Is this still the case?

Seems like we should change the name of this thread to "2022 Team Speculation and Wishes"

The only thing tougher than Brooks body is his mental fortitude. For that guy to go through what he did and not let these types of crashes get to him mentally is full beast mode.

@jeff.brines I realize I'm honing in on this one example you've raised, but it's just such a good case study of the problem.

You've really got to dig a little deeper when you come across these seemingly outrageous cases of conservative censorship. While I'm not going to watch the hours of video you...more

@jeff.brines it is classic how your examples of censorship consist of crazy conspiracies and right wing propaganda clearly coordinated to impact an election. How about some examples of core conservative ideas (not conspiracies) being censored. Or are those the same thing at this point?

It does seem...more

You cant argue with Gwin's racing pedigree and be blown away by some of his absolutely freakish wins in Leogang, MSA and VDS. That said, it was comical listening to him talk about how informed and educated he is about varying views and opinions only to transition into parroting tired right-wing talking points. I'm no Newsom fan myself, but that was some pretty typical uneducated, white Inland Empire stuff.

Jeff, I've been reading your comments for years and have appreciated your insights about bikes and US racing, so it is disappointing to learn you are a nutter.

Wait Gwin said he researches both sides left and right to make an informed decision but all he posts are far right stuff. That totally makes sense since the right side has all the correct information.

Jeff, with all due respect, do you really find the word "laughable" to be offensive? Do you ever laugh? Do you understand the difference between laughing at someone and laughing at something?

OMG, never in a million years did I think you'd post a long reply to this. smile

So you're saying that if you post relatively unpopular content, you'll get fewer likes and interactions? Shocker. It doesn't matter if it's "political" -- for example, I got into gravel in the last year and started posting more...more

Gwin has incredible talent, drive, and a serious work ethic. I still remember watching him ride and race in-person in late '00s and early '10s, and being absolutely blown away by what I was seeing. I hope he returns to the top of the sport, and I'll be cheering for him every run. But, the whole part...more

A threaded BB can be installed by a monkey and not creak as long as they thread the cups in straight.

Why do press fit BB's still exist? Do some riders like the sound of creaking?
