Video: Clipless vs. Flat Pedals - The Pros and Cons of Both
@panaphonic: You ride uphill both ways? Is it in the snow too? Seated pedalling, there is no difference. Even the roady "lab tests" (GCN did a few) showed that, and they were using plastic sole'd Clip shoes on top of small platform cheap pedals. With a proper flat pedal and appropriate shoe, you can push and pull at the top and bottom of the stroke, so you only lose the ability to pull on the pedal which is an unnatural movement for your legs, and unless you're consciously trying to do it, I'd wager you don't pull on the pedals while sitting and pedalling, or even standing while maintaining an output. For reference, I'm currently riding clipped in, and swap fairly regularly. The only physical differences I'm noticing are the ones I've outlined above. Psychologically, I feel I ride looser on flats, and I much prefer them for wheelies and dicking about.

There are only two differences between clips and flats. One is when you're activity trying to accelerate. Being able to pull up during this makes a noticeable difference. Sitting, spinning and maintaining a power output (ie 99% of your actual pedalling) there is no difference in efficiency. Second is pedalling over rough ground. (Think rock garden/prolonged roots). Anything else is just preference, so there is no right or wrong answer. The 15-30% claim in the video is extremely misleading.

Next level as usual! The Yanks always seem confused about Oranges and no multi linkage bike with the rear shock in the firing line of rear wheel crud. Standard British conditions right here, and 2 frame bearings pays dividends.

The Ingenious Project - Gustav Gullholm's Super Clean Custom Scott Genius
@bicyclerider: Not sure it would be worth it without the twinloc shock, which is unique to Scott frames. If you managed to fit it, I'm sure other riders of Scotts could too. I don't own a Scott, but hear good things about them. A hack like this, would definately move a Scott up my shortlist when the time comes to consider a new frame. Your remote is definately a 10/10 hack.

Really like the idea with the Twinloc remote. For me, it's one of the best things about the article. I wonder if it's possible to get that arrangement for a LH under bar setup? (please note, I'm not in the loop with Scott products, so have no idea if this already exists.)

Looks like somebody messed up the bike build for the photo shoot. Bike looks pretty damn solid otherwise!

Review: Mavic Deemax Elite Alloy Wheels
Anyone care to address the elephant in the room, that a lot of the top pro's are running 25mm internal width rims (EX471) and winning? Futhermore, they seem to be running 2.4" WT maxxis DHRs (Danny Hart), which are "optimised" for 35mm rims. I'm not sure there are any benefits to the "wider is better" rim fashion. Mavic seemed to come to the same conclusion, not making wide rims but then were forced to make wider rims due to marketing driven demand.
