Fastest Woman in the World - Interbike 2017
That's what I was thinking, if you start wobbling (had that happen during longboarding at way lower speed and it scared the shit out of me) at those speeds you're screwed, especially with little room for error within that box..

The article raises more question than it answers, why no bigger wheels? Why v-brakes? Why the ridiculous amount of seatpost setback?

Fox Racing's Impressive All-Weather Collection
Goretex IMO isn't that great either, jackets usually start leaking within months. Pit zips combined with a tougher material/membrane would be better IMO, preferably for a lower price as it's gonna get trashed anyway.

Fox Racing's Impressive All-Weather Collection
@codypup: Same here, pair of 2012 Fox Ultimatum shorts that are still looking good despite tons of crashes and thorns. Unfortunately the same can't be said about my year old TLD Sprint shorts that are already tearing at the seams, rubber top layer of the straps came loose etc. I really think quality went downhill at all brands although TLD are taking the piss currently.

Rohloff's Electronic Shifter Needs Just 180 Milliseconds - Interbike 2017
Regardless of age of fitness, who are we to keep anyone from enjoying the outdoors on any sort of bike? The fun police? So nice to see all these 16 year olds slagging off ebikes when Yamaha brings one out, I recall the comments were a lot more nuanced when the Coastal Crew were involved, guess that's the power of marketing...

Rohloff's Electronic Shifter Needs Just 180 Milliseconds - Interbike 2017
@vinay: I think it's a bit questionable to keep a patent that could move things forward but don't actually do anything with it. I agree that it's quite bulky but then again I think the benefits would outweigh the weight and bulkiness when executed properly. I would personally love a mech-in-a-box bike with a belt drive. The biggest gripe with the Rohloff or Pinion IMO is the way it shifts (impossible under load, rather than having to slightly ease off the power for a second with a rear mech) and the system's slack which feels like crap when used to a modern hub. I'm not an engineer but I can imagine this being inherent to those designs. Until these drawbacks are solved I doubt the gearbox will be a mainstream success TBH.

@jflb: agree. Noticed from my phone and gps that battery life can be pretty short on cold days.
