5 Questions I Want Answered - Opinion
@WAKIdesigns: where do you get 10-15% from? Everyone seems to have accepted your numbers without question but I have never seen anything near that. Don't forget that derailleur systems have losses too, so what is important is the net difference in losses between the two systems, which is a few percent.

When the Rohloff hub first came out, it was the same weight as XTR. It has barely changed since then but XTR has had nearly twenty years of refinement and lots of cash thrown at it. Nearly every downside listed by Mike could be overcome with the right resources... I hope. Child aspirin, Whitney - funny.

UCI Announces Athlete Quotas for Olympics
I disagree with there being fewer spots for women. Watch any World Cup XC race to see why.

Pivot Switchblade - First Look
I've just finished a day of work doing maths and researching data and testing software and thought I'd wind down by reading this article. Instead, my head hurt a quarter of the way in.

A Challenging One-Hour Yoga Flow Class - Monthly Yoga With Abi
What freaks me out is that whenever she says "Relax your face" is exactly when my face is screwed up. Either my face is always screwed up doing yoga or she knows exactly what parts of which poses makes people screw up their face.

Lauren Gregg's Custom Ford Transit Van
@andyk: actually, I think there would be many comments if there was a touched-up photo of Lopes. And parking and shirtless jibes as well.

My father insisted on my sisters always having a big pair of men's boots outside their front doors. Makes it look like a big dude is inside.

Push Elevensix - Review
The suit analogy is pretty good. Suits and shocks are designed to fit people in the middle of the bell curve, and you can be very happy with your purchase. But if you are towards the limits of standard design, you need to go custom. And speaking from experience, your first tailored suit marks the end of buying off the rack, which makes a shock like this a scary proposition.

Wiggle Chain Reaction Deal to be Decided by June 30th
I don't care their roots, I can't pop in and try on a new helmet or get an emergency brake bleed the night before a race. And there's a special place in hell for people who go try stuff at their LBS and then purchase it online. If you don't get good service from an LBS, you tell the owner or manager.
