Kirt Voreis Toying with Galbraith - Video
At first I thought the hub clickings were annoying, and then I started to really like it. Is intentionally overlayed with the musak! Especially: the slo-mo with the slo-mo clicking - because! Wish I wish I could ride like that.

Giant Trance Advanced 1 - Review
I got to try one of these a few months ago. Climbs chunk really well, very plush, reasonable weight and great price. I'd buy one today if it was a 29er.

Does Boost Spacing Really Make a Stronger Wheel?
@snowcrash19: No. So long as the spokes remain in elastic tension an increase to bracing angle means more lateral stiffness with less tension increase. The wheel is stiffer even though the tension is lower. When we're talking small bracing angles even a small increase is a huge benefit. Here is the simple math for tension triangle: http://photoshipone.com/calculating-cable-tension-for-cable-cam-rigging/

Does Boost Spacing Really Make a Stronger Wheel?
@jaame: care because... Spoke geometry is the basis for evaluating an aspect of wheel design. We can distinguish marketing bs from superior design. Clever design means better product, you pick: lighter, stronger or cheaper. Like free money. Or you put your head in a hole and ride what you are given. @alexdi: thank you so much for the effort, and for revisiting the numbers. Your latest numbers look right to me, the ac symmetric flanges built on boost width are (of course) better than any 142 approach. But its a waste to not also extend the flanges whenever possible. They are not as stiff as normal dished boost, and much less stiff than super boost plus. Stiffness ain't the whole story though. Real issue is how much does spoke tension rise with a side load. The bigger bracing angle reduces the increase in tension. Spokes break from overload. Thought experiment for those that think this ac approach makes sense: suppose you 'undished' a current 142 hub by moving the rotor side flange in? Anyone think that's a good idea? (note I'm just talking strength here because that's why mtb wheels break, not fatigue even though I suspect the stronger wheel will also fatigue less)

@alexdi: Sweet. Thanks for the numbers. I am too lazy to work that out myself. How does the asymmetric super boost plus pencil out?
