I like to pedal. I also quite like standing on pedals and coasting. And jumping off things.

The Mountain Bike Technology Wishlist - Opinion
@won-sean-animal-chin: Ya, that's probably the case. I don't agree with you, therefore, I must be completely unaware of the situation, and totally oblivious to the sport that we are talking about. Not like the 10 year old carcasses of old Kenda Tomac Sig Series tires are hanging on the wall in my garage or anything to remind me of mow awful they were not that long ago. Did I say they were perfect? Nope. However, to claim that the tech in tires hasn't changed at all in the last 30 years is just ignorant. Of course it can be better, but at the same time, it is way better than it was.

The Mountain Bike Technology Wishlist - Opinion
@Poulsbojohnny: Agree entirely. I used to, and I mean 10 years ago, charge into root gardens and feel a bit nervous hoping I wouldn't pinch out. I haven't had that feeling in at least the last 4 years. Tire casings have become so much better than they used to be. I am sure that they could be improved, but I am doubtful if adapting heavy off-road tech such as beadlocks will improve the riding experience.

Inside Ortema - The German Custom Brace Producer
True, there may be more technologically advanced systems than plaster cast...however, you ever order a set of those "laser-measured" car mats? I used to work in the automotive industry, and the biggest company that makes those laser measured mats, WeatherTech, has some of the most poor-fitting floor mats around. There were only a handful of times when those mats were ordered that they ended up fitting as suggested. One guy ordered 4 different sets, and they all fit really poorly. While I am sure laser imagery technology exists that is way beyond anything WeatherTech has ever even considered, that doesn't mean they should embrace it immediately. If plaster works well, and the quality of these pieces suggests they have worked out the plaster process pretty damn well, then why "upgrade" to unknown tech? Also, plaster does allow the technician making the brace to go to a direct example of the leg in question. Not the most elegant solution perhaps, but can't argue with the results!

Leaving Las Vegas: One Last Stroll Through the Halls of Interbike, 2017
@nojzilla: you can try, can i make a couple suggestions? 1. Try to get your facts straight. 2. Realize i probably dont care nearly as much as you seem to about debating something that currently is irrelevant regardless of who is making the more salient points. 3. Go for a pedal. Your demeanor reminds me of myself when i havent pedalled for a bit. Or if i need a Snickers bar.

@nojzilla: except that you didn't. The guy whose post you are referring to acknowledged as much. Not here to argue bud, just like talking tech. Try listening every now and then as opposed to just spouting off, you might come across a new idea that way instead of hearing threaded and headset and assuming thateans threaded steerer. Nice try bud.

@nojzilla: i dont believe you read that right. Threading in the hs tube to allow the cups tp thread in, then steerer routes through, if im not mistaken. The article in question was advocating a change to a new possibly superior design, not to reembrace a 30 year old design. I think.
