I'm appreciating that this was written by someone who's given a little thought to technical writing!

I think it's important to add, though, that just because a tire mounts up and holds air doesn't mean it won't burp or roll under hard riding. Rims that don't have a pronounced center channel/depression are the most suspect, because the bead will often seal against the relatively large diameter center, but once seated against the walls isn't really held much tighter than what it took to get the tire onto the rim in the first place. On these rims (Sun CR18 for example) by the time you get enough tape to get a safe bead lock it's going to be almost impossible to get the tire on, unless you do something special with the tape to create more of a center channel. As mentioned in the article, you want that really loud, crisp pop when the bead seats.

My right AC joint is speaking from experience....

for me it's a pity the seat tube angle, otherwise a perfect bike

Yeah, I mean sweet moto, don't have any problem with trying to use bike parts to make a light moto, but why bother with pedals when a human's wattage is going to be about 4% of what's available?

I was a little offended too, but thinking more you basically have a standard 11-36 10speed spread in the gears you're in 95% of the time with nice intervals, and then one bail-out gear. I think I could get down with that, or, up rather.

No idea what Bryceland said. Something about a swimming pool. Assume he is talking about the weather for the weekend. Consider subtitles.

I'm so excited to see what Aron does on the Tues with it's higher suspension progressivity as opposed to the Spec. Total domination may be boring to some people. But not me.

Cool perspective, but remember that since the bikes weren't all in the same front/rear cog combo, comparing chain growth, etc. is pointless.

yeah there was an interview where he said he had to ride 29 for awhile but as soon as the 27.5 was available he was going to it, which was last year.

Jeffsy is the master of hype, and probably a 29er Trail/AM bike judging by the instagram pics of singletrack in Maderia. Hopefully an Evil Following bike with a steeper seat angle...
