More Bikes and Oddities from the Eurobike Outdoor Demo 2014
That Kilo fork isn't an Amp remake... the Amp F-4 had the linkage under and behind the crown not forwards and they had coil over thru-shaft shocks on both sides not a single air/oil shock on one side.

Schwalbe, Canyon, KS - Eurobike 2014
As an established weight weenie, i did previously use the "regular" butyl tubes in undersizes and stretched to fit bigger casing tires, but now I just use equal rated size thinner-wall tubes. If you are going to undersize, it makes more sense to undersize by diameter and not width, as the tube wall will stretch less to fit a larger diameter tire than a wider one (of equal diameter). I use 26 x 1.9/2.1 rated tubes for example in 29 x 2.1 tires.

A lot to be said for a good seatpost QR and a hite-rite.

Depends on the tube you use... there have been some ridiculously thick walled tubes (on the outside) meant to be thorn proof that would do a similar function to the Schwalbe system. They're more commonly found in 700C sizes (so perfect for doing this on a 29er wheelset) but they do exist in 26er models.

They sell a LOT of seatposts and shocks... remember KS is short for Kind Shock...they're core business is as an OEM shock maker.

Also tubes inflate to fill space against a lower pressure outside than inside, if you have 30psi pushing against the outside of the tube then its not going to stretch as far as say it was 14.7psi (as is the case with a regular tire at sea level). Essentially you inflate the tubeless setup first and THEN you inflate the tube.

Airborne Toxin - Review
Except the creaking is just as regular an occurence with threaded cups if tolerances are off or assembly is off. Google "creaking bottom bracket" and most results will be for threaded bottom brackets.

Airborne Toxin - Review
How hard is it for a home mechanic to make a press? 1 foot of threaded rod and some washers and nuts... presto...press in your own headset or bottom bracket cups. Want it pre-made for you and more professional looking? Park has the HHP3 for about $75-100 as do other brands offer similar. Compared to the specialized tools many "threaded" cups have needed over the years, a press fit assembly is one of the simplest to do correctly... although apparently not for the brain trusts on here...

They do... but its not their fault the brands only give them ONE model a year to test.
