Nerding Out: Why You Shouldn't Worry Too Much About Weight
@mariomtblt: If your suspension is moving on a flat surface, that's energy loss. And in this case, you are the only energy source, so it's your energy wasted. There would be no loss from suspension if this was an electric moped with constant force applied, since the only loss would be in the initial compression of the shock. However, on a bicycle, you will never achieve constant force on the chain, force will be roughly applied in a sine wave form, with some pretty large differences in force during the stroke. This variable force will act on the suspension through the chain in varying degrees based on the instant centre of the suspension design, causing some energy loss.

Nerding Out: Why You Shouldn't Worry Too Much About Weight
@BenPea: You do have a point there, they are indeed more human. Maybe they should have extended rights then?

Nerding Out: Why You Shouldn't Worry Too Much About Weight
@Tasso75: Mostly how well damped the carcass is, that really helps, doesn't "ping" off every little rock and root in your path. DH34 also has absurdly grippy rubber, so much cornering grip. Currently have DH casing Assegais front and rear, while they have very good grip in most situations, they can't match the absurd grip of my old DH34 tires. Might be better in muddier conditions, but I don't ride much in mud, so not very relevant for me.

Nerding Out: Why You Shouldn't Worry Too Much About Weight
@mikealive: I ran Vittoria Barzo front and rear on my hardtail this season, and I thought I was going to die. They are super fast, especially noticeable when accelerating, but there is less than zero grip in turns, especially loose over hard. So damn sketchy, had a few very close calls due to a lack of grip, never running XC tires again.

Pinkbike Poll: What Are You Most Picky About On Your Bike?
@NorCalNomad: You shouldn't flare out you elbows, nor should you keep them tucked. About a 45 degree angle plus/minus a bit is the optimal for strength for 99% of people. I just think about good form for bench press, that's where you are strongest, and your strongest position, is also the one you waste the least amount of energy over time. Flatter levers make perfect sense for most people, it also greatly reduces the chance of hurting your wrists in a crash, or even avoiding crashes.

UCI Helps Rescue 165 Refugees From Afghanistan
@rallyimprezive: Your nation really need to start turning off the television, and start thinking a bit for yourselves. The divide you have, is not organic, look at google search trends and news headlines since OWS, this is very much manipulated to divide people.

@hamncheez: Worst part is that most abortions are due to people not taking responsibility for their own actions, not because of rape. If you get an abortion because you were too lazy to use a condom, then that is pretty much pure evil. Abortion after rape is okay in my book, but not 3rd trimester, why would anyone wait that long? Pretty much the only valid reason for such a late abortion would be if there was uncovered some really severe defects that would make a fulfilling life impossible for the child.

Cascade Components Releases New Brake Calipers - Sea Otter 2021
@Caiokv: Been a Hope fan for the longest time, have had 4 sets of Hope brakes, and never really been dissapointed. Got a set of Hayes A4 brakes this year, and I'm hugely impressed, they are little bit more grabby than Hopes, but holy shit they have some power! Modulation is fine after getting used to them, and I don't see any downsides to them so far, and no need to bleed them yet. The final test will be long term durability compared to Hope.
