I have guide Ts on my ht and I just run big rotors. They work fine for me but maybe i got a "good" set.
Funny stuff huh? I took 15 years away from snowboarding and then started again in 2018 after learning to ride mtb. Riding bikes changed how I saw the mountain for sure and I could carry speed better and had more fun just making turns. No more big hucks though.
I took a lack-of-bike-parts-and "too hot and dusty" mtb break this summer and really woodshedded with my guitars. I just rode yesterday for the first time in a month and it was great even though I rode like a total kook. I have also been on a similar trajectory of doing stuff I never thought I would do on a bike over the last few years and I feel like little breaks (a month was too long) like this help me forget certain bad habits. For example I had been struggling with an almost pathological foot out on right handers but didnt do it once yesterday and didnt even think about it until the car ride home.
I move my feet around too much now that Ive ridden flats for 4 or so years. I tried some clip in pedals again last year for one ride and could not deal as I was twisting out when cornering (scary).
Great read and a Gattaca ref, one of the best 90s movies. I am convinced that the 65% front center and 35% rear center are a good starting place for spliting up a wheelbase.
I really like the construction on shimano shoes but I kill the sole pretty quick with kona wah wahs. They are less grippy that 5.10 so perhaps similar to these shoes.
Ha! When the article is trolling the comments. I just got into the push on grips with wire due to Andrew.
I have found....tall bar make bike ride good.
Cash money tip is always is the best. Also the most easily shared with the rest of the team. The shop that I work at does this and we usually just get a huge meal or throw some kind of party with the pooled cash.
Also no one ever wants a weed tip, save yr nuggs.
BB to front hub
I am riding a hardtail with 63% front center and 37% rear center. It has 2 29" wheels 64* ht angle 55mm bottom bracket drop and super tall bars. Its the best cornering and all around handling bike ive yet ridden and all of it came together mostly on a lark with what I could find this last winter. I am interested in comparing the % of front and rear centers to see if that is the key to its cornering ability. Off topic? Sort of, but I think this % may be an important piece of this fun bike nerd puzzle we all love so much. Im 5'8" and love the big wheels.
This gets rid of the gobble gobble? I love the brakes but man that Turkey shows up every 10 rides or so and i have pull every thing and clean it and re-surface the pads.
Pete, I hope this does not cross any personal lines, but could we get an ankle measurement? I love the idea of these but likely have the same problem.
I cannot agree with this sentiment more. Its funny how people (probably childless, nothing wrong with that, and probs a good choice) who might be offended by some one asking them to leave the dog a home would have no qualms about asking you to leave the kids at home and would probs mention off hand how annoying kids are.
Z1, Z2 and I have my eyes on a durolux. The Z2 is great for trail bikes. I have a 120 version on the HT and it is awesome. Gotta echo the service out of the box thing the z2 rode night and day better with a lowers service and adding foam rings.
