You assume carbon is being used to reduce weight and not to improve stiffness. Also, some structures and shapes are only possible in carbon. Trek's design, very intelligently, needs a strong seatpost due to the loads being put into it, but the TT and ... more »

Let's be honest, they did a great job on that scooter up until they took a huge dump and molded it into perhaps the least interesting set of handlebars possible.

No one used the perspective and known measurement of the stanction diameter to better hypothesize the diameter of the wheel? I'm disappointed in the internet today.

I would doubt they would make that connection. Not a lot of marketing departments like to go around saying their bike isn't the best and that others are and that they *NEEDED* to catch up. Most are content with saying whatever they're doing is the most ... more »

Owned by Pacific, same people who are doing Mongoose mass bikes. It is a brand of a by-gone era. It won't come back. Now or ever.

Reply to Do tire inserts mean it's time to rethink tire design? 11/15/2017 12:36 PM

Might be more beneficial to wrap your head around the understanding of how a tire is, or could be constructed. I am no expert on tire machines, but you might be asking more than the current machines can do. I do find it rather odd that people are putting ... more »

I would be curious what percentage of retailers attend the show with the intent to bring aboard new brands and make business deals. The major companies that most retailers use to get small parts, smaller brands, as well as bikes aren't there and haven't ... more »

I want to know when multi-user networks will start addressing horse-riders. Rode through a pile of shit on a plus tire means you got a really good grip on some shit and get to carry it with you for the rest of the ride.
