Nomad C or Mojo HDR - Discuss!

I ride a mojo and love it and would recommend. But you can't go wrong though these are two proven bikes and have similar geometry. Get whichever one makes you happier, less broke, whatver.

Do you buy from CRC?

To reiterate what someone said earlier Jenson USA is really good for pricing and shipping to Canada. On my last build (XTR) I found that some things were cheaper than CRC while others not. The shipping is great. They charge you for everything upfront and UPS delivers to your door the next day (in Vancouver at least). In my experience the shipping is reasonable and it takes the unknown costs out of the equation.

2013 Tour De France

I don't think many people, including informed Canadians are expecting him to win… podium would be awesome.

Road bike tires

The benefits of good tires on road bikes is such a missed opportunity for so many. People spend a fortune on their road bikes and then put shit tires on them. By spending $50 more your ride quality could be so much better while reducing rolling resistance.

To start, tubular tires will always give better ride quality than clinchers but people seem to be too scared or lazy to glue them up these days. Also the cost of flatting is a problem…

If you are talking clinchers then good cotton high TPI tires with latex tubes is the best bet. Latex tubes and cotton casing 'open tubular' style will give the best feel. Vittoria Corsas are great but also check out Veloflex Corsa.

Continental will provide better flat protection but feel like shit. That's my two cents.

If you had an hour to ride...

great answer… let's try a different question on the assumption that I don't end up on the wrong side of the highway?

How long to Lost Lake on Comfortably Numb from start of Young Lust with minimal stops and good pace?

Floor pump with 0-40ish detailled pressure gauge?

http://www.lezyne.com/en/products/floor-pumps/high-volume#!classic-dirt-floor-drive

This guy is specifically for MTB so the pressure gauge range goes to 70psi so is very legibile. The volume it moves is amazing. This is all I need to inflate stans tubeless.

Race face atlas am bar strength?

If you're asking then it will probably bother you in which case just get a new one and don't think about it. The bar is fine though.

The future of XC Racing

If you're point was true then all of the pros would be on 29er full suspension bikes all the time because that is what bike companies want to push today. In reality pros ride what is fastest/most comfortable for them. The only gains to be made here are in weight with remote lockouts on forks/shocks. Saving a a couple lbs isn't worth it. Do you do a lot of euro xc races?
