Since you seem to have both available, do you know if the OneUp pump bracket mount fits with the SWAT bottle cage? I've had issues with other pump brackets being too short to clear the rather large SWAT cover plate.
You guys are often very quick to act defensive. You first reponded with a
fallacy presenting a false choice (watching this of watching a blank space)
and then you assume that I have unrealistic expectations when I simply had no
expectations to begin with!
I'm not saying that I expect university level classes in a red bull vid.
They are the ones pretending to explain physics, and they proceed in doing it
I guess what I'm saying is that if it's worth doing something, it's worth
doing it right.
I have a hard time seeing how they measured and considered rider input in
It's easy to simplify the problem and consider McGazza as a simple projectile
(that would have worked for calculating his trajectory in his latest stairset
adventure). Those numbers about speed resulting in under or overshoot are
pretty much crap since they don't take into account what the rider did (pop or
swallow the lip).
But hey, mountain bikers love cheap physics so why not!
Nova Scotian? Let's try again, what's the easiest and most fun to ride or ski
(given a proper slope) between A) foot of fresh snow B) crusty refrozen
chicken heads C) Icy bumps D) gaper littered groomers wich falling childs left
and right E) any other condition than powder?
Well I'd like to think that asking "are you trying to scam us and sell us
shit?" is not actually a hard question. Of course the answer will be no. This
is a merely a way to say : "You have been attacked, what is you defense?". It
is basically the easiest way out you can offer.
Harder questions could have been how do you prove that those new solutions are
indeed improvements. The trek guys mention that 29+ is hands down the best
option. What do they back this with? That's what I wanna know.
Everyone made the switch to 650b after being told that it was better. However,
very little proof has been published of what makes it better.
There is also much talk of stiffness in regards to the new axles. How is it
quantified. How do we know how much more stiffness is better? Is there a point
of diminishing return?
The rocky guy talks about 27.5+ as being more appropriate for beginner riders,
is that true for for 29+ aswell? What do the trek guys think about this?
What can be done with those standarts that can be done with regular tires? The
promotional video for the Rocky Sherpa didn't show anything that couldn't be
just as fun on a regular bike.
I too was a bit disappointed with the video. You seemed to accept the
company's answers without counter attacking. It's ok if you want to showcase
the company's PR. It's not ok if you're trying to demonstrate hard hitting
