Review: HED's Raptor 29 XC Carbon Wheelset
@gks333: I ride skylines too, and I switched from Crests. Despite weighing far less, the skylines are noticeably stiffer and corner better than the crests. The Crests had gotten a rim dent as well. The Crests are noticeably squirrely at 29" compared to the skylines. This is doing things like White Rim Trail in under 8 hours, Grand Junction Off Road, 12 Hours of Mesa Verde. In other words, some rocky freaking terrain. Skylines are holding up great. Nox makes some great wheels. My Crests were already near end of life by the time I replaced them with the Skylines. They would not have held up to what I put the Skylines through.

Bike Check: Jason Momoa's Aquaman Themed Specialized Turbo Levo
Notice how you never saw them together too. Never in the same scene... Coincidence? I think not!

Review: RockShox's All-New SID Goes Bigger and Lighter
I'd be interested in the SID normal on a 9.8 level Trek Top Fuel.

Review: RockShox's All-New SID Goes Bigger and Lighter
He's a little portly for a XC racer, you're right, but I think he does a good job of representing the upper range of folks who would be interested in this fork.

Video: Clipless vs. Flat Pedals - The Pros and Cons of Both
@mybaben: It's actually a pretty bad idea, because you're likely to forget to unclip if you need to because you're muscle memory will be used to flats.

Video: Clipless vs. Flat Pedals - The Pros and Cons of Both
@gumbytex: Flat pedals also don't have float. You may change your foot position multiple times during a ride, but on any given pedal revolution your foot is locked in with regards to rotation, assuming you're using performance flats with good pins and sticky rubber shoes like 5.10s. If you're doing multiple hour rides, not allowing the natural rotation of your foot, like a clipless pedal would, could put stress on the knees.

@celstark: That's with toe clips for one, and ignores the fact that a clipless shoe is usually much stiffer than a skate style shoe used with flats. There isn't any increase in efficiency due to pulling up on the pedal, but reducing the losses from flex of the shoe (which would flex more and cause even more loss of efficiency the harder you were pedaling) is likely to be significant.
