Sinter's $180 Elite Brake Pads Use Titanium & Gold
Do you mean the bike stand that raises and lowers with electric assist? I use one on the nights I do my shop work and it’s wonderful. I don’t even attempt to use the pedestrian acoustic bike stands any more, once you get used to raising and lowering the bike according to the task you’re doing, you’ll never go back. Plus with those big dumb battery mopeds, you just roll it up, clamp the post in the stand, hit the lift button and bring it up to working height. It’s genius.

Are they available? I mean, if so then I may get them just to have some spares.

Mondelēz International Acquires Clif Bar for $2.9 billion
I recall a friend opening a Powerbar back in the day and it had worms in it... Turns out, it wasn't even that uncommon, they blamed it on some type of moth, I don't really recall.

Porsche Takes Complete Ownership of Fazua
All these comments about how Porsche hasn’t gotten it right, but I’d venture a guess that most of them have never driven a Porsche and those who have probably not at 9/10. Snap and lift oversteer was a problem for nearly all semi-trailing link cars, BMW 2002s were known for it as well. The Weissach suspension revolutionized suspension design and with it created some of the best handling cars ever built. If you’ve ever driven an early 911 they are pure joy, light, responsive, smooth and the aircooled flat 6 is possibly the best sounding engine of all time. The final 993 turbos are among the most visceral street cars of all time. No Nannies, few frills, a beautiful simple interior with a massive central tach. It can launch hard enough to lift the front tires, revs so fast and freely that 2nd gear comes as soon as your foot is off the clutch from first. In-spite of only having around 400hp it was just over 4sec to 100kph and nearly a 300kph top speed. I’ve driven some pretty interesting and fast cars over the years, but few I recall as well as I do that 993.

Porsche Takes Complete Ownership of Fazua
@recycledmountainracing-com: essentially quarter-elliptical leaves as well, that’s the technology that made the Austin Sprite legendary… in the 1950s. Up until the C5 the driveshaft was still the upper link as well. Break a u-joint, all hell ensues.

First Impressions: Tom Bradshaw & Christina Chappetta Ride the Best Trails in Tallahassee, Florida
I rode both a couple years ago. They are fun and unique compared to the riding I typically do, but neither are places I would specifically go to Florida for. I’m probably driving if I’m traveling with my bike, and between me and Florida are Stokesville Va, the entirety of western NC and even Knoxville. Not sure I’d feel compelled to drive on for another 10 hours after leaving Pisgah.

Final Results from the EWS Tweed Valley 2022
Great to see Martha Gill punching at the front. Looks like her winter (summer) in NZ paid off.

Tech Randoms: EWS Tweed Valley 2022
@JiminOz: yeah and I’m not the only one in my area that wants nice kids bikes, high end kids bikes can always be sold for nearly what you paid for them. When my friends kids ride my kids’ bikes you can see how much better they enjoy the ride. Every 20kg kid riding a 12kg huffy is being punished. Whenever I talk to a parent about buying a kids bike I tell them to find the lightest one possible, even at the shop, I discourage parents from buying the heavier models with multiple front gears and suspension forks, I suggest they get a lighter, often simpler and less expensive model. It also gets me a fair amount of return business, word of mouth, and positive Google reviews, since they appreciate not being upsold.
