 Haa, this is awesome, but only slightly seriously.. What about psychology ? Positive or negative headspace at a given moment in time? How much money is in the bank account and how many bills are still outstanding.. or even, Is this particular ride I am on right now sanctioned by the wife ? Mental State for me is the #1 deciding factor on how well I will ride at any moment in time.. that and how well my tyres are holding air.. I think 20-80 just about nails it though!

 You are totally correct! I have been telling my buddies for years, its your bodies skills over the bike's. I often show them the difference in travel between the 160mm of your fork and the 300mm of your elbow joint, ahhah visa versa with knees and rear shocks! However, on the same trail when riding my fully compared to my HT, its easy to see the benefits of a full suspension! ahhahah RideOn!

 This says it all. Well done Waki. This is the antithesis of what all marketing departments want us to do. Think.

 I just wonder if... you were that pissed about wheel size news, flooding pinkbike world, that you reached your deepest hate to do that - not so easy to combine - sketch??... or were you just bored ??Smile

 It is kind of good bye to that debate for my part Smile That sketch was meant to show how many issues go into mountain biking and that taking one thing out of so many (I haven't mentioned probably even a half) will not change much, especially if the change is small like moving from 26 29 to 27.5 or from aluminium frame to carbon frame.

 I think that you should go forward and create something like point to point sketchbook, that would help young people, not prepared for this kind of marketing overwhelmed world of new technologies (not always useful or durable) , who need to understand some basics about engineering, structure of metals etc. created with originality like your sketchesSmile
I honestly would learn a lot if you could indicate your opinion on frames, forks, wheels, drivetrains, cranks, and any other fragile parts, not strong enough to do the job.

 when are we going to see the design for a bike with wheels that can change size on the go? that would be the future

 The words are hard to see on the sketch.

 Increase dimensions on the right side of the screen. Then the word count should do the deal, no? Big Grin

 Excellent. Note to self: Worry about the bike less and me more!

 Mnah, even if you look at the volume of stuff going on with the bike itself how many thing have to fall together. I think many of us take it for granted that our bikes are perfectly maintained that they are perfect fit to our bodies, skills and the way we ride. We are all experts on setting up suspension and tyre pressures. Then when a new fab comes along we are made to think that a tiny readjustment of the whole picture will just boost our performance. I forgot the tyre wear...
