Ask Pinkbike - Out of Control Rear Derailleur, Flat-Pedal Rider Switching to Clips, and a 24-Inch Wheel Question
Times are super easy to engage and disengage and I never get accidental releases. You can pretty much just stab the pedal with your shoe and that's about it. They work just as well when dry or muddy too. They also allow for a little foot pivoting which is very knee friendly, something that people often note is not the case with shimano. After 2 years of riding I opened them for a maintenance and everything still looked brand new and lubed in there. Can't fault them at all.

Video: First Look at the 2015 Specialized Demo
Specialized claimed, in a sam hill special edition demo 8 press release about 2 years ago IIRC, that they go with 135mmx12mm because it was about just as stiff as 142mm but the narrower frame is much less prone to strike rocks when it came to navigating tight rocky sections. I guess 142mm makes more sense for stiffness on the thin tubed trailbike frames... or its was just the usual marketing smoke and mirrors. Just be happy you're not stuck with a 2010 demo running a virtually non-existing 135x10 axle like I am.

I love how most of your pictures tell a story instead of just capturing a small moment in time. Keep up the good work.

Flat Pedal Foot Placement For Best Results
This year I've been doing a lot more clipless riding on the XC bike compared to flat riding on the DH sled and I've been finding that I have a harder time keeping my foot planted on the flats this season when I ride them, which wasn't a problem the last few years. I'm starting to feel like clipless are probably making me a little lazy on proper technique.

Flat Pedal Foot Placement For Best Results
Most of the powerlifting experts will tell you to drive your heels into the ground when you squat/deadlift so your "argument" actually makes more sense than this midfoot stuff if you're going to use weightlifting as a basis for proper movement...

Fail Of The Month - July
I'm extremely disappointed there was no sound in the slowmo bit because a deep voice "ohhhhhh shiiiiiiiiiiit" would have made it even better!

Like how just about no one ever went "I wish my wheels were just a tad bigger" until 3-5 years ago and now everybody and their brother are swamping shops for them.
