Bikepark Wales - Episode 3: Go for launch
Honestly it should of been the same for anyone who wants a pass. No other place to ride as far as I am aware has one price for locals one for everyone else. If they had made it £55 a year I am sure it would have had enough people picking a pass up to make the different income up. I am also assuming that although it doesn't state is that you pay just £25 for the uplift rather than £30 if you have a season pass? Was no mention on site when I last checked.

Bikepark Wales - Episode 3: Go for launch
Glad they have it all going etc but a few things of the website that spring to mind. It has short opening hours in the summer at 10am-5pm considering the cost to ride. The summer months I would have thought could have been open till 7pm? Especially if you compare this to Aston hill say that is open between 8:30am and 7:30pm. Also why does making you local give you a massive discount on a season pass when it is the other further afield that have to pay allot to travel?

To the Point - Renton Coil Springs
Yeah otherwise you would be looking at £2100 a spring if the cost ratio was 70:1 for the consumer assuming the average steel spring is £30. Just as an idea the most expensive spring Renton show on their site is $310 so it is more like 7:1 for the finished product.

An Exclusive and In-Depth Look at Kona's 2014 Carbon Operator
If you have the bike on a stand and take the rear wheel out then it can be a pig to hold it in place in mid air while trying to line it up with the chain putting tension on it and sliding the axle in with the other hand so yes it can make it simpler. No one said it is a major problem but it's a small benefits with no draw backs. Also your looking at the distance between the axle without considering anything else. You will never notice the difference between the 157mm and 150mm anyway's as the bike can easily be designed to provide the same stiffness as required. You do not need to buy any more gear, not that is worth the manufactures time and effort anyway's unless you believe the manufactures are wishing to make all their profits from some adaptors to attach to existing hubs. No need to be negative about every standard that is out there. This is one that does make sense and really doesn't affect us financially.

Yeah for instance the Hope hubs are just different length end caps. Nothing more. Cost a few quid, this is a standard that makes no difference to anyone who already has any wheel-set. You could even just use some washers and slide them onto the thru axle if you really felt like it for a hub that doesn't have adapters. Won't make the installation any easier but means you wouldn't have to buy a new wheel for a while anyways.

Video: Jade Rear Shock From DVO Preview
Yeah I just replayed it like 4-5 times and I still can't make out DVO as mumbling.

Video: Jade Rear Shock From DVO Preview
Triangles would only be stronger at 3 points just as a square is only stronger at 4. The flat surface that would be created by any box sections would allow greater deflection than a curved surface. Circular is by far still the most optimum shape that can be employed in the design of suspension stanchions as the loads through the tubes themselves have the same capacity no matter which direction the load is coming from. Other factors create the higher loads in specific directions. Of course you could model the oval that would be optimised but load direction is very hard to analyze for every situation/direction and therefore cylindrical tubes have a factor of safety. Torsion across the surface of a oval shape I would image would also mean to optimise the design you would be looking at multiple thicknesses similar to that of the Thompson seat post internally which again would be greater cost and likely more weight. This is theoretical mind since I don't have the software to start modelling this at the moment.

Why not take a still from the film assuming it is higher enough quality?

Tioga MT-ZERO Pedal Review
@Snfoilhat, What you gain from making them thinner is the ability to make a pedal wider while having the same clearance at the same lean. That is what should be noted as an advantage over other pedals. Of course as the you lean further this advantage reduces so as a manufacture you would have to work out what the optimum lean to width dimension is. As has been mentioned for an extra 2.5mm of height from the spank pedals I would take them any day of the week. The bearing is also smaller on the inner edge so means the end of the crank is still taking the hits rather than the bearing case. They also look better in my personal opinion.
