Yeah but we all have that friend who would now get to drop a pebble in our cassette instead of grabbing our front brake...

I’m highly skeptical of these as being nothing but snake oil. With that being said, in theory if it was a heavy enough sticker and you loaded the entire bike plus it’s constantly changing loads and a sprinkling of non linear critical interfaces (tires, the entire human body) into an FEA simulation, figured out your first vibrational mode and the resultant peak displacements, you could, in theory, place these such that they increase the that first vibrational mode and reduce displacements.

Now, you’d need to do this on each and every frame design and size, and it would vary with the mfg tolerances of the carbon frames. Oh, and it’s prohibitively expensive and for $1000 they definitely aren’t doing that. And I intuitively doubt that the outside of a lower fork clamp is the optimal spot for such tuning...

No they make it quite clear that it’s purely an emotional support sticker for their athletes. Personally I would have made it into a gold star but I won’t fault them there...

Remember when XTR hubs laced to 517s was the hot shit wheelbuild? And suddenly alloy nipples came out and you could get some fancy looking shits? And your shop would handbuild them and it'd be like 600 bucks? And then Crossmax and Deemax wheels came out and they were like $800 and everyone...more

Remember the first time you got on a bike with handlebars over 700mm wide?

Can you put this crap on a 2nd website. This is an MTB site.

Great. I get it. I'd love to ride with loved one's, too. But, instead, we do things that ALL of us can do--things that are important to them. Like just hanging out, hiking, taking a walk, going to breakfast. Not everybody needs to ride mountain bikes.........This video...more

I wouldn’t worry about trail access issues boys......The E-Bike consortium is going to be so big in 5 years that they’ll be able to lobby .....not only for complete trail access- but that all trail users (hikers, horses, mtb) must yield to E-bike riders at all times....more
