@TEAMROBOT -Fair enough. I did my best to push them, and destroyed a rear tire in the process. My experience building hundreds of wheels for customers (and myself) combined with the fact that I'm not exactly svelte, rode these on a hardtail, and didn't pick smooth lines might...more

If I say it’s so. It is so. Trust Mongopedia not Wiki or Warnerpedia.

Disagree on all points. 38's still creak, and nothing compares to the stiffness of a dual crown fork for big holes, steep terrain, and heavy braking. If you're in a bike park there's no need for 12 speeds, and the longer chain and derailleur cage are much more likely to make...more

Bite point- just do a quick fluid top off every couple months and its fine. Its regular maintenance just like a lower service.

Why is the seattube the only part of a bike without a seal on it to keep water and dirt out?

Now that the usual pearl-clutchers have weighed in about crush washers and the dangers of lubricating with lubricants how about give it a go and report back how it went (crazy idea, I know). Let Spomer and I know if we get to stay off the kill list for another year.

When I first installed my Oneup remote I didn’t like it, but it was my fault because I was comparing it to all the other remotes which are shaped like an up-shift paddle. After a couple hours I adjusted to it and I push it with the tip of my thumb now and love it. Now the other remotes feel huge, clunky, and require too much range of motion to activate.

There is a dumb conversation happening here. You can build light easy-to-break frames out of carbon, aluminum, or steel, and you can overbuild bikes so they hold up to years of abuse using carbon, aluminum, or steel. The better question: Is there a big performance benefit to buying carbon...more

Thanks! The reporting “journalism” is why we really do it. Sharing the stories and moments behind the moments with our chats is what keeps me doing this. The photos and captions are secondary. So thanks for listening (and looking)

477mm rear end, and interestingly they got rid of the Buzzworks headset to make the front end 8mm shorter. All my life I've heard how short chainstays corner better, but Greg seems to be doing fine on the limousine. I hope all the engineers at SC talk to each other, because...more
