Orbea Loki 2016: First Look
Haha, I run around 20psi, normally go by feel though, yeh at 40psi you have no grip and its bumpy, but that's not the argument, the argument is about rolling resistance, y'all missed the point. A hard tyre rolls quicker, period! The point being a plus size fat tyre at 15psi will be sluggish as hell and 'feel like you're dragging along a dead horse behind ya'. I feel there is much unnecessary rolling resistance with the 650b+ wheels at low pressure, they grip awesome but are very slow and cumbersome, not that fun to ride IMO

...but by all means, run your cars tyres at 15psi if it rolls better and see how good your fuel economy is :-@

15psi fat tyres on 650b rims.... Or you could run 40psi normal tyres on 26" rims and drag a dead horse behind your bike

First Ride: 2016 RockShox Lyrik
Because having a whole new hub standard to achieve adequate stiffness is a lot simpler than using the existing 20mm standard.....!? MTB logic right there!

Breaking News: Marzocchi to Close its Doors
Damn!!! So I have a brand new unused 2014 66rc air DBC fork sitting under my bed and I'm not sure if I keep them for legacy or sell them asap as their value will no doubt plummet....!?

First Look: Shimano's New Gravity Shoe Lineup
was thinking that too, such a contradiction in terms, an spd 'skate'/bmx shoe... I'm guessing its for bmx racing though.

First Look: RockShox Lyrik and Yari
Dammit @hllclmbr and @taletotell, learn English! You must read all the words in a sentence, not pick and choose, as that changes the meaning - I wrote: "no REAL difference"... as in - no major difference. I find 650b to handle slightly worse but on the flipside, grip better, so overall... 'no REAL difference'... It sucks you have to spell things out for complete retards on this website every time!

First Look: RockShox Lyrik and Yari
Literally the only people asking for a new revised Lyrik were the 26" bike park crowd who prefer 20mm axles, this is just a giant middle finger to all Rockshox' fans. I understand the spare parts market had stagnated and so now we're all being forced into 650b so brands can sell new bikes still, but for the same reason dh bikes aren't top sellers, this fork will also attract hardly any oem or aftermarket sales in this configuration as that much travel isn't needed by all the 650b and 29r loving nancies out there. For the record, I ride 650b as I couldn't buy a 26" anywhere, I feel no real difference in it and find it just harder to manoeuvre and throw around than 26", it all just a big farce.... Rant over.
