Wild Cross-Country Tech - World Cup XCO 2, Germany
What's the point of Di2 on a bike that only has a rear derailleur?

Isn't the point of Di2 that the rider simply chooses "higher" or "lower," and the computer moves both front and rear derailleurs to give the appropriate ratio? Aside from doing away with mechanical cables I'm not sure I see the point of Di2 on single-front-chainring'd bikes? What am I not understanding, here?

Revenge of the Nerds: A Valentine's Day Epic
Thanks Vinay. Wow. Lots of work. Doing the rebar, then shaping it by hand, wow. While this looks great is it really worth the extra effort? I've found that I can get decent pump and flow going around most skateparks, it's just that they're not optimized for it. Start with a flat surface and add humps and berms. No? I guess if you want constant radii and not a single straight line, then that's what's needed.... Is that the aim, not a single flat section in the direction of travel?

Revenge of the Nerds: A Valentine's Day Epic
All you little dipsh*ts ought not to be neg propping me for asking for a clarification.... Yes, big difference between asphalt and concrete. How was the concrete formed? Usually it's too liquid to be shaped in any manner other than being contained by forms, but it seems that concrete wasn't shaped using wooden forms....

You say, "We did however get some laps in on their concrete pumptrack - the first ever in North America!" Was this one not first: http://www.brooklynbikepark.org/

Muc-Off Foam Fresh - Review
Yes, +2 on white vinegar. It will get the funk smell out of your laundry. You can also spray it or a combo of baking soda and water on your gear in lieu of this muc-off stuff.

This vid was done very well. I have the original BMX Bandits dvd if anyone's interested. $10 plus shipping. Be warned, the riding in the original is what's to be expected from that era, lol.

Roedty, please stop sending me pm's. You've sent me a second one, and I'm deleting that one, also without reading it. All you're doing is confirming that my original post hit where it hurt. Everyone's entitled to their opinion on here. Just don't make it personal by sending me threats or diatribe or whatever it is you can't say publicly. Any further communication from you and I will follow vernonjeff's advice to make it public. I don't know when I first started hearing "Tony" stories, but it was probably before YOU started riding. I've been following mountain biking from the late 80's. Keep in mind, your actions and replies aren't helping Ellsworth's cause.

And Tony Ellsworth, I mean, Roedty, don't send me private messages; that's just scary.

Roedty, it's great that you've been exposed to Ellsworth's good side. Just realize that the more "good" one does the worse it is when it's at the expense of others. It's like: "My pastor/coach/community leader does so much good! It's just that he beats his wife and children at home and underpays his employees and lies on his tax returns and lets his dog poop on other people's lawns." See? Except in Tony's case, the money he pours back into the community comes at the expense of disgruntled customers. All the "good" someone does doesn't excuse the bad; it doesn't make up for broken words and lack of integrity. It just points to someone, who's two-faced and disintegrated. You steamroll over people, and Karma will give you what you deserve.
