North American Handmade Bicycle Show 2018
a Hub hangs in a rim by the Spokes when the bike is loaded, rendering the floating spoke flange fairly useless when actually riding. Neat as to get it built perfectly round on a trying stand tho

Aaron Gwin Using Box's Shifter and Derailleur?
I think you’ll find that he will most def be still running the E13 integrated cassette on his wheels again, not a Box one.

Hell YES re the wheels, after seeing plenty of Bowmeester wheels and users experience, can not wait for him to release these, even if they are under the crankbros name. These will not be like any other CB product, I’m sure Mello will make sure of that.

The Complete Guide to 2018's UCI Downhill World Cup Teams
Theres 2 Commencal Teams, UCI isnt allowing Commencal/100% register a trade team due to new rules that state that a team must have a top 50 placed rider from previous year, or a top 10 at worlds. Why the FK the UCI isnt allowing it, beats me, they are pushing paying teams away, and stifling income for teams and riders by adhering to this and not allowing Commencal/100% in, i spose they will just doe a Syndicate from a couple years ago, when UCI wouldnt recognise them as a trade team either

Onza Aquila Aaron Gwin Signature DH Tire - Review
@gabriel-mission9: there has to be a very small window of tension where this is the case tho, taking it to an extreme will indeed have a big affect on stiffness as your tyre will be rubbing your frame under hard cornering, but make bugger all difference while straight. As you get closer and closer to a correct tension, it will still proportionately get stiffer till you hit the window. so i think that it does indeed affect it, if not, then back all your spokes off to a balanced wheel from 60kgf drive rear and see what happens

Onza Aquila Aaron Gwin Signature DH Tire - Review
This is correct in the single vertical plane, as when riding the hub hangs off the rim with the spokes at the top of the wheel, so the tension placed on spokes directly proportional to the weight of rider and bike, and size/force of an impact. BUT when taken at different lean angles, thats when all the "tension has nothing to do with stiffness" goes out the window, As your now starting to apply the pressure and force in an additional horizontal plane. Rim deflection offset from center will happen at different rates, and is still only a very small amount of difference from tension, but it still matters.
