Me too. Not difficult to do, and trouble free.

Tire Makers Co-Develop an Inflatable Bladder System to Prevent Flat Tires
@riish: I've run 22psi front/rear since getting my bike in January. New to tubeless and apparently I'm doing it wrong. Because at 185lbs, I didn't manage to cut my sidewall in Bend on the nice rocks there, or pinch flat on jumps, or anything. Moving into the wet back home (PNW), I dropped the front to 20 the other day. Still no flat. What can I do to make it so I need to buy these inserts and add a bunch of rotational weight to my bike?

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
You've obviously never seen videos of helmet graphic applicators. It is a mastered skill and the workers knock them out in seconds. Same thing could be achieved with heli tape.

Interview: Rebecca Rusch Takes Home Emmy Award for 'Blood Road'
While you are at it, a little history and geography... Ho Chi Minh trail started in North Vietnam, but mostly ran through Laos and Camboida. (The whole point of the its use was to move troops and equipment to fighting locations to the South in a politically protected area) Haven't watched the film, but curious; did she ride the whole trail into Cambodia or just the North Vietnam portions?

Review: Handup Gloves
Their style looks fun. I've been using Dakine gloves for years. Usually get 2-3 seasons out of them. $30.

@Rubberelli: Wait, you can wash bike pads? No wonder no one will go on group rides with me!

Review: Bontrager SE4 2.6" Tire
@laxguy: Physics are physics. What makes a bicycle rim/tire any different?

Review: Bontrager SE4 2.6" Tire
@laxguy: was that whoosh of going over your head or something else? Think of it this way. A wide rim will stretch the casings contact point where it sets on the rim, causing the tire to flatten its profile out. A narrow rim will cause the profile to become taller, or perhaps balloon out (not good). A car analogy would be low riders with the tires that are too small for the rims. It gets that cool low rider look, with the sidewalls turned in towards the main tread, really showing off the rims, but it really isn't how the tire was designed to be used. Depending on how the tire is constructed (sidewall strength, carcass shape, etc) it will assume some shape at either extreme or, more likely, someplace in the middle. If the tire is designed to perform best at a certain profile, getting the right rim to achieve that profile is desirable. Really, I think it would be interesting if tire manufactures started putting profile numbers on their tires. The theory isn't any different than a car tire, which has 3 dimensions rim, width, profile.
