At the top, the reaction force must be at least equal to his weight. This is so that his wheels are pressing against the ramp. If his wheels aren't pressing against the ramp he's falling. So if he were to travel only just above zero, then he wouldn't press into the ramp enough and he'd fall. Like if you've ever been on a gravity wheel at a fair ground. Like you said, we haven't taken any drag into account plus, it may be elliptical so these are only very rough figures.

Two Days Left to Help Matt MacDuff 'Raise the Loop'

Join Kona in the Alps on the All New 2016 Precepts - Video
Could someone explain the main differences between the process and precept in terms of suspension kinematics, ride and manufacture? I'm just wondering what makes this bike their budget offering. There must be differences in terms of the frames performance, or is it down to the spec of the kit on the bike too? Cheers.

BTR Fabrications' New 650B Ranger Demo Bike
Considering the sort of hard tail bike you can get for £1000 the cost of this frame seems a little excessive. I understand that it's hand built in a shed and they'll only sell a few, but wow, that's an eye watering price for 11 tubes of steel welded together.

Selling for a friend: He has recently started up his own company and is struggling to find time to ride it. This is a reluctant sale, but the bike is currently gathering dust and deserves to be ridden more. The bike has been extensively overhauled recently. New forks, brakes, bars, and drive train have been added. Everything is fully functional and good working order. The frame has new pivot bearings, endcaps and pins and the shock has new bushings fitted.
