Transition TR500 - Review
I've also heard that if you go up by about 100lbs in spring weight on the Wilson, it makes a great fun park bike. Most people try it with the recommended spring for 30% sag or more, and then say it feels super grippy and fast, but not fun to ride. I guess the same could be said of any bike - the setup makes the biggest difference to how it goes. I'd love to try the Wilson in the hi setting with a SC fork and 400lbs spring.

Well that is true but if you could get a bike which is the same but looks better for $1000 cheaper, you'd be a fool not to hey? If one was that much of a brand whore, one could even have a respray and get some Transition stickers for the Airborne.

Flat Pedal Foot Placement For Best Results
It's pretty obvious that clipped in is faster. The squat analogy might be true, but you're not using both legs at the same time on a bike unless you're clipped in. If you compare a single leg squat on a flat foot, to a single leg squat on the ball of your foot plus a hanging single leg raise with weight, it would clearly show the combined weight to be higher. Time yourself on a 30 second blast up a hill with flats and then again clipped in. Actually don't bother, because you know what the outcome will be. Having said that, I stopped using clipless pedals when I was 19 because of the knee pain. I can ride all day on flats with no worries so there you go. I'd have to agree with the "noise" part from personal experience, and disagree with the power output part based also on personal experience.

Transition TR500 - Review
I fully agree. The old ones looked a lot better with the top tube blending into the side plates. SInce the Airborne frame is the old TR450, and about $1000 cheaper, I'd buy one of those if I was into this frame.

I agree with you guys. I used to read all the road tests in Motorcycle News until I was about 14 and realised they're all the same. Still, Pinkbike has great photos, that's why I come here. And there's usually some banter in the comments.

Spank Oozy Trail295 Bead Bite Wheelset - Review
I've got the Spike 28s and they are a right cunt to get Schwalbe SG tyres on. I read somewhere that the Spank rim bed bit where the spoke heads sit is stronger than the rims they tested against despite not having eyelets, because they went for precision machining rather than a poorly manufactured rim/eyelet interface. In spoke pull through tests, Spank rims are very good performers. Isn't that so?
