Whether your opinion is right or wrong, there are a fair number of your readers who agree with Peter. We just don't act like dicks about it...

It wouldn't be that difficult to make the headline read "race results here," Instead of "Bob Bitchin' wins the race," would it? I mean, that way, the various editors of the news outlets can continue to make the world a better place for Peter. And the rest of us would be clicking the link anyway.

I’m in the don’t post the results in the headlines camp. I avoid Vital from race morning until I’ve gotten to watch the race, which could be days later, and visit PB instead. That way I can keep enjoying all the other bike related stuff but not have the race semi ruined for me.

One technique I've been using for a while is to put the cassette on backwards, so that the cogs closest to my spokes are the smallest anyway, preventing that big, nasty drop into the spokes if you over shift. Problem solved! Plus, to my understanding this does...more

I'm not going to get into an argument on the internet with you. I have 10 years of bike shop experience and have competed in down hill since I was a junior. Do this technique if you'd like thats your right. I personally will just adjust my limits as designed, align my deraileur hanger with the tool and will continue to do so on my customers bikes.

And maybe a guy as fast as swentz can get away with not running that highest gear (I've tried chasing him before and know he doesn't need it) But for the rest of us mortals its nice to be able to pedal the open sections. Especially given the trend in bike to get lower and lower, requiring smaller and smaller front rings.

Hate to say it guys, but pretty bad advice. If you already are having to limit the deraileur limits to account for the spacer, why not just limit it properly so you don't shift into the spokes. Or if you want to keep it that much further, just limit out your lowest gear- a gear your much less likely to use on a DH bike than the 11 tooth. Adjust it properly or take it to a shop who can.

That being said, thanks for providing everyone in the shop today a good laugh.

I dont get it, just adjust your derail properly and you wont have an issue. Taking 1 cog out and moving the whole cassette over aint gonna help it from jumping into the wheel. Unless you only ride in 1st all the time...

They wouldnt need to be off set if he just added or subtracted a couple teeth from the ring gear. As long as the amount of pawls was not divisible evenly into the amount of teeth, you coul get same/better engagement with less tricky machine work
