Field Test: Yeti SB150
@mikelevy: I also don't feel like I can tell anything about the climbing from these reviews. In person I know I had a very different reaction trying a wreckoning and a ripmo and I'd like to hear that difference explained, then maybe I understand more about the bikes I haven't tried. Maybe ultimately its just "understand the leverage curves" but I think smart pro reviewers could do better than "acceptable."

Ask Pinkbike: Tire Pressure, Hip Packs, Dehydration, and 'Le Systeme'
Wrt dehydration there is a book called 'waterlogged' that dispels myths I learned in school. I used to require lots of water, generally 1.25 liters/hour. Which is too much when youre climbing in the desert. After reading the book I relaxed and waited for consequences and there were none. Now I am comfortable at 2.5-3liters over 5 hours. Turns out there is thirsty as in 'omg I can drink more' and another which is 'damn I sure would like some waters. Also there is no evidence cramping is caused by dehydration or even electrolytes, is a 200 year old myth.

Review: POC Tectal Race SPIN Helmet
Their trebac was the only helmet that could fit my head. This new one isn't as large in some dimension and doesn't fit me. Sad.

FSA Releases Wider Gradient Wheels
Well, I only own/build 32 spoke wheels but 24 does have a slight aero advantage.in this case I'm guessing they do it to save money and it isn't a benefit for customer.

FSA Releases Wider Gradient Wheels
@FLATLlNE: I wouldn't consider a new wheel that wasn't asym. The better equalized tension makes for a much more durable wheel. As you say, one side is at max tension, which is strongest, the other side... isn't. At 60-70% of max the spokes will fatigue much quickly. Imagine a perfectly symmetrical tensioned wheel at 60% of correct tension, with a stiff rim, the spokes will be cycling to slack and wheel will fail early.

Motion is Lotion: Joint Mobility - Yoga With Abi
What is the movement in the first picture? Looks cool. I assume alternate sides but how does it end?

Viral Bikes Launches New Skeptic & Dérive Pinion-Based Hardtails
Being grumpy my first response is jeese, current system works great, what's the point of pinion? But it's a hardtail, ill click... BELT!! F?! Gah! I normally ride a singlespeed but the belt guys... They're a different breed. Constantly adjusting, bringing tools and space belts, it's been years now and the system isn't getting better, but some fire drives them onward. Like 80s Lancia owners.

Review: Fox Live Valve Suspension
@Karve: Dentist have money AND lots of free time. Hedge fund managers have none. Is there a euro analog to that?

Review: Fox Live Valve Suspension
I so don’t care. Someday the computer will read the trail around the bike for context, just make suspension perfect without ‘valving’, or guessing intent by the angle of the trail.
