I used to race road (yeah, I know) and no one was shaving their legs for the aero advantage. There's no proof it provides any. It's mostly done for vanity and to show people you are a "serious bike rider" in the amateur ranks. There are some claims about it helping with road rash but I've had road rash with shaved and unshaved legs and didn't notice a difference. So basically it's a dumb vanity thing but mountain biking has plenty of those as well.

Ask PB: Foxy vs Mega, Fast Rolling Rear Tires, and Crank Arm Lengths
I bought some wheels that came with a 2.4 wire bead ardent out back. It was so slow I almost went to see a doctor because I thought I was having a heart condition trying to keep up with my buddies and getting exhausted pedaling to the top of everything. The grip was meh and it was so damn big it made it twice as difficult to manual. I seriously thought something was wrong with me until I switched tires. Amazing what different rubber can do.

Trans-Cascadia Enduro - Registration Now Open
@thom: yeah, I'm probably being a little harsh. I grew up in Portland and I can't help but get irrationally angry when i hear "farm to table" or "locavore" or any other number of bs buzzwords. CK does do a lot to support the local riding scene.

Not to mention they say the money is going towards environmental impact studies. I work in that field so I already know that the majority of it will be wasted. And "Chris King Gourmet Century Chef" makes me want to toss the overpriced, overbuilt headset on my AM bike into the trash.

1 Question - What Product, Event or Trend has had the Greatest Effect Upon the Sport this Millennium?
I almost wish the guy from 9er had said the 29" wheel. While obvious, it would have been a better choice than IMBA. IMBA may have stood for something at one point but now they are just a big bureaucratic waste of advocacy money more committed to not offending anyone than fighting for trail access. Hell 29" wheels aren't even necessary anymore on IMBA trails since they've just become gigantic paved pump tracks with stupid giant berms and a max 6% grade.
