Added reply in a thread Great American Outdoors Act - Good or Bad? 8/5/2020 2:29 PM

Not in MY backyard, in other words. I'm a proponent of extracting our own resources from our own lands whenever possible. Clearly, there needs to be a balance between resources and national parks/wilderness, but it is patently unfair for the USA to be ... more »

Slik doesn't get to make an offer, no matter how reasonable they think it is. Fox gets to decide what their license is worth.

Added reply in a thread New high-end MTB brand: undomestic 7/21/2020 9:06 AM

"Instinctiv" is a far better name. I like the looks of that bike, too; it's like a Mondraker but with a gearbox.

Added reply in a thread Stacyc vs Grommy 7/17/2020 9:13 AM

My kids are too old to have taken advantage of powered balance bikes, but I did get my son a Strider when he was little. I definitely recommend something of the sort, as training wheels on a bicycle are bad. (Bad-ish. Let's face it; most of us started ... more »

Sure, it's viable, Just make sure the same standards apply. You'll need the make sure you get a frame with the same size hub spacing, same BB configuration, etc. Whether it's worth it, however.... ? It could be a huge headache.

Started new thread Formula hubs - replacing bearings 7/6/2020 2:16 PM

OK guys, I have a question. I have a Commencal Meta 4.2 which came with WTB wheels and Formula hubs. (Decent, but not great.) It's time to swap out the bearings, as they have developed a noticeable amount of play. I can grab the seatstays and wiggle ... more »

Gnarly. I bet I could do about 30 miles and maybe 2,000 feet of climbing.

"I don't see color" is bullshit. I see your color, and I think it's beautiful. The world will always be racist until everyone feels the same way I do.

Added reply in a thread New Rider Question 5/29/2020 10:41 AM

Since you have never mountain biked, my first thought would be to go with the lesser expense. If you love the sport, progress rapidly and can find fault with the Giant, then you could always upgrade components.

Added reply in a thread Tubeless Wheel Issues 5/19/2020 3:18 PM

...unless you run 28 psi. Man, I hate all things pneumatic. Tubes, tubeless, whatever. If it involves holding air inside it, I'm cursed and it never works for me. The other day, I tried (again) to tape up my wheels and go tubeless. I almost got it to ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2.3mm rotors on Shimano brakes? 5/6/2020 1:39 PM

My initial thought is that the only difference would be a smaller clearance to the rotor surface, resulting in a more immediate bite. As long as the pads retract away from the rotor surface you should be fine. I could also imagine more heat buildup if ... more »

Isaac Newton agrees. Also, the pedals, cranks, and BB are all unsprung weight in that design.
