Transition TR500 - Review
I had a TR, and loved it, but it was a 09' DirtBag. A friend had a '13 operator and cracked it open, but he did get a new one under warranty.

Transition TR500 - Review
I own a Devinci WIilson, and love the bike. Can't say it needs work to get past rock gardens and roots, but cornering does require some effort (at least for me). I used to ride a SX Trail, and the bike was a cornering fiend, but would not perform half as well as the Wilson on rock gardens, although the SX Trail is not a full on DH bike after all.

Flat Pedal Foot Placement For Best Results
I know!! I do use clipless for XC riding, and I like it! I just can't feel comfortable using them on my DH rig, guess it is just trust issues....

Flat Pedal Foot Placement For Best Results
It is funny how the "engineering based solution" was so poorly made in this article point of view. And engineered solution, when done correctly, will take in account the whole system and come with the best solution possible. But simply comparing the human body to a machine and stating how a machine would break under external interference is silly, and talking pseudo science about noise in the system just makes the article seem naive. Although I do prefer to ride DH with my feet on the so called "correct" position, and agree to the article to some degree, it just seems too poorly based. Feels like the point is correct, but the way the article leads to it is not. Also, as many have commented, if clipless is so bad, why every pro XC or roadie uses it?

Swatch Prime Line Munich Replay and Results
Completely agreed! But in the site they work this force as if it were pushing the coaster inwards, giving the impression that the force acts in the body being studied, not in external parts. Rails or line. Maybe it was just my impression anyway.... :salute:

Not really man... What does exist is a reaction on the rails, not on the object. In this case the roller coaster pushes the rails, trying to keep them straight, but since the rails can be considered fixed, they force the roller coaster to follow their path, and by doing so there is a normal force on the rail pushing the coaster. But the coaster itself suffers no centripetal force, otherwise it would pull the rails inside the looping, and what happens is the opposite. An even better example would be a small ball attached to a line. The other end of the line is fixed to a rotating joint, and the ball has constant speed, no loss, no acceleration. If there was a centripetal force in the system, the line would collapse and the ball would tend to approach the rotating joint, but instead it just spins freely around the joint, in a circular path, with its radius being the line length.

The blog is really nice, and explains everything nicely, but right at the beginning they mention a centripetal force, that does not exist. What is really odd, since they do have a great math base!
