When Air Canada Destroys Your Bike - June 18, 2015, 10:18 a.m.

Something to consider if he gets a $10K cheque for his $10K bike that he paid <$5K for. $5K+ = profit?

Shame, even he couldn't get a deal on Thule bike box.

Cool. I'm a new engineer and I've done some similar calc's myself after seeing that Giant PR.
-I was getting pretty even energies at a given speed. The larger wheels rotate slower, this cancels out the increased MoI?
-the advantages in moments of inertia in different wheel sizes goes away if you use heavier tires!
I did some calculations about contact patch and angle of attack as well. I think angle of attack comes into play when people talk about how much more fun 26 is because you can "feel" the trail better.
Wheel durability is something that I feel is not being addressed. For the casual rider concerned about fun and not STRAVA or race times, it might be nice to have a wheel that you don't have to true as often…
