Less Wires, More Gold Dropper Post Roundup - Taipei Cycle Show 2023
@WestwardHo: I personally see disc brakes, suspension, etc, as natural evolutions of what we had previously or what was going on with motorcycles n such. The dropper is so game changing to me because its creation took a leap of faith and vision. Would this extra weight and complexity be worth it? After it gained traction, it had such a big effect that bikes changed to accommodate it, we changed how we rode, and trails changed to complement it. Riding a flowy pumpy bermy trail with a full height rigid post kinda sucks. For classic, natural trails, even rugged ones, it's not that big a deal.

Fox Transfer SL Dropper Post Now Available In 125 & 150mm Lengths
@graveldaddy: TL;DR it depends on how much drop you want. If you want more than Fox offers on the SL, then no, the small weight penalty doesn't matter. Long version: I have the 70mm version on my XC bike and have seriously considered switching to the 50mm version. I just don't need that much drop for most things. I only use it to pump features and to get lower in some corners. And with the 70mm SL, you can't stop at the 50mm mark. I'm considering some other lightweight posts, but I need it to be 27.2. I also really like the very light springing on the SL.

Video: Neko Mulally Tests Out Carbon Rear Triangles
@Mtbdialed: A tighter spring is the same spring it always is, with the same stiffness, but with added preload. Tightening the spring changes its starting position, in this case it moves the rim to one side. Doing so on the other side as well will bring the rim back to center. With the springs cancelling themselves out, what's left is their spring rate, which is unchanged with preload. Therefore it takes the same amount of force to move the rim sideways a given amount, regardless of preload. This has been proven in math, physics, and in real testing. The fact that you don't believe it is on you.

Video: Neko Mulally Tests Out Carbon Rear Triangles
@Mtbdialed: Obviously they used the same lacing pattern across test wheels. And for lateral stiffness, the difference between lacing patterns is pretty small. A longer spoke is a softer spring. So is a thinner spoke... And that's how spoke gauge affects wheel stiffness.

Berd Release 1400 Gram Enduro Ready String-Spoke Wheelset
@WasatchEnduro: high end carbon XC rims have gone down in weight over the last five or so years. Most are in the low 300s or even upper 200 gram range, while keeping a 27-30mm inner width. So adding 100g to an XC rim for Enduro-bility seems about right.

Review: Galfer Shark Disc Rotors
Technically, the extra thickness isn't for better heat dissipation, but for greater thermal mass. The rotor will be able to absorb more heat energy. Any given braking event will heat the rotor less. However, it will also cool more slowly from a given temperature, again because of the greater thermal mass, greater heat energy at a given temperature. The increased surface area from the extra thickness is minimal.
