Round 3: 2016 Photo of the Year - $10,000 Cash Prizing
Interesting, I had the opposite reaction. It's a decent photo of an extraordinary event - if there had been 20 photographers there, 19 of them would have captured similarly amazing shots. I'm looking for the extraordinary photo - the one where 100 photographers could have been there but no one else would have put together the same shot. To each his own.

NOBL TR33 Wheels - Review
"that puts a huge amount of force into the hub shell, and that causes it to expand" Hard for me to imagine the hub shell stretching. From that video, the sprags put increasing pressure agains the inner race as they rock towards full engagement. So they engage immediately, but the inner race doesn't completely stop moving until the sprags have finished rocking. That might take just a fraction of a degree, but maybe it's enough to create the "softness" Vernon mentions. Just trying to find an explanation besides stretchy hub shells.

Whyte T-130C Works - Review
"seat tube angles around 73 degrees set the rider behind the crank circle, just enough so that when the rider pushes hard on the pedals, much of that pressure is countered by the saddle." I don't get it, how does pressing hard on the pedals push the rider *into* the saddle? Seems like this pushes the rider up and back, so away from the saddle.

Did Adele Mery win pro women on plus tires? From the 10th pic it looks that way but maybe it's just the angle...

First Ride: Tantrum Cycles Missing Link Suspension
@tehllama: Maybe Specialized and SC are content with what they have, I don't know. But Canyon seems to be interested in new suspension tech. Lapierre has been developing electronic suspension controls. Cannondale redid their suspension recently. Yeti did too, twice. So some companies think this is a good area to invest R&D $$.

First Ride: Tantrum Cycles Missing Link Suspension
"Each time I showed the Missing Link, the response was the same," said Berthold: "It works great, but bikes are pretty darn good right now and we don't want to allocate the time and expense to develop a new suspension." I have zero understanding of suspension design, but that sounds odd. Yeti recently spent time and $$ on two unique suspension designs. Specialized and Santa Cruz built premium brands around patented suspensions; patents that just expired. Now competitors are selling those same suspensions for less. I imagine Specialized and SC are desperate to find a new market differentiator and would love to license a superior new suspension. They must have a reason for passing on Berthold's design.
