Ridden & Rated: 4 of the Best eMTB Motor Systems for 2020 - Bosch vs Brose vs Shimano vs Fazua
@timbud: nothing happens to the power? as in it stays the same? that's completely wrong. nothing happens as in you don't get any output... sure... A motor with 0 torque would be rated at 0 Watts. It's like asking what happens to all that power if you have no power. it's a stupid question and it shows how little you understand the simple concepts here.

First Ride: Newmen's Advanced SL A.30 Carbon Fiber Wheelset
@sir-hc: Yeah I don't buy it either, sure you may reduce kickback in certain hits, but that means it will be less predictable.

First Ride: Revel's Recyclable, American-made RW30 Fusion-Fiber Wheels
really? I'm reading this as $700 per rim, i.e. $1400, + $700 to $800 or more for the Hydra hubs, plus spokes, nipples and labour, and I really don't see it coming in 'significantly less'

First Look: Sprindex's Adjustable-Rate Coil Spring
@badbadleroybrown: You can try french, I bet it'd be worth a laugh. Just going to clarify your last post for any sad reader who made it this far; "A 400lb spring will compress one inch [compared to it's unpreloaded length] with 400lbs placed on it... preload does not change that."

First Look: Sprindex's Adjustable-Rate Coil Spring
@Campagnolo123: we're both correct depending on how you measure the spring travel. If you're just talking about spring compression compared to it's uncompressed, unpreloaded length, then yeah the spring will be compressed by one inch when the rated force is applied regardless of preload, but that's not particularly useful when talking about suspension and defeats the purpose of talking about preload. If you want to compress the spring a full inch compared to it's preloaded length, you'll need to apply the preload force plus the rated spring force. If you want to compress a preloaded spring you have to first overcome the preload force, otherwise it won't move at all.

@badbadleroybrown: OK bro... again, I understand, please stop trying to explain. Your last comment gets at the root of the problem here; [a 400 lbs/in spring] "requires 400 lbs to compress one inch total." That last word wasn't in your previous comments and makes all the difference. You seem to be including the preload distance in your total compression distance, while anyone who talks about springs in a meaningful way would not. You're not wrong, but what you said seems likely to give people the wrong impression about preload. To compress a preloaded spring by one inch you need to apply the spring rate plus the preload force. Using our 400 lbs/in spring, with say 50 lbs preload, you'll need to apply 450 lbs to compress it by one inch, and 850 to compress it by two inches.
