@blast-off: Isn't it about time a brake manufacturer released a model called 'jack'?

First Ride: 2019 GT Force & Sensor
I've always felt their identity has been around experimenting with suspension designs, doing things that no-one else would dare to do. GT and Canondale have done more for experimenting with what a full suspension design could be than any other brand. I'm thinking the Lobo, the original RTS, the IT-1, I-Drive, the derivative Freedrive, AOS, their prototype HPP DH bike... this looks like they've thrown in the towel and drank the Kool-Aid. I'm sad to see that GT have sacked their Blue Sky thinkers and spent the money on tracing paper.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
@motion: cheers, ok I can see how at very low pressures they can replace the support given by the air - not sure I'll ever be low enough for that! I've only just set up my wheels to be tubeless but if I still have some flatting issues, I'll give Cush a try.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
@vinay: Ah I see your point - well, I'm running tubeless tyres on a non tubeless rim - the rim wall doesn't even have a bead hook. It's just a straight wall. I didn't think there was any issue here as I've not had any sealant coming through. But now you mention it, I have got a really slow release of air and maybe it is coming through the bead and rim wall... hmm... I reckon I would appreciate the impact protection of procore - my old alloy rims were dinged to buggery by the time I'd moved to the carbon hoops. I essentially run slightly higher pressures to ward of dings now.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
@motion: does doing so destroy the foam?

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
@motion: I have not - and I've only just gotten around to tubeless. I've had some carbon hoops for a while that are not tubeless ready so I've finally gone ghetto. But, I just don't see the physics behind what you're saying. In my mind, it's the pressure that gives the tyre it's shape. The tyre isn't squirming because the bead is moving around the rim shoulders... surely!? Anyway, the increased rolling resistance of a low pressure tyre isn't attractive to me as I'm very much a trail rider and descents aren't the be-all-and-end-all. It's unlikely I'll need the ding protection and anti-squirm advantages of a foam insert. One day I'll probably investigate when the entrance costs aren't so high ;)
