2 Reasons Why Your Disc Brakes Don't Work
Top tip: If you brakes aren't working so great, ride around with the brakes on or down a steep hill, and then immediately douse the brake caliper and disc with water. If it was hot enough it will fizzle. Ride again and brake hard once or two. Voila, full power! If it still didn't work repeat again and you should be fixed. Magic, don't know why it works but it does. Use it at work when some brakes just refuse to come good even after sand paper.

2 Reasons Why Your Disc Brakes Don't Work
Absolutely. Especially if your using a brush to clean the drivetrain, the flicking action flick oil to the disc. I have done it on many occasions despite my best effort not too. Also I find brake cleaner makes the brakes less powerful and much more noisy for some reason.

Peaty's Tubeless Sealant
@tommakin: Intersting. Wonder when we'll see it over here. Has it been tested in cold weather? I haven't replaced a worn tyre for longer than I recall. 90s maybe?! Last time I binned a tyre was bust sidewalls. Usually that last long enough to be sold with the bike. I don't skid, lessons learnt young and poor made me not skid hardly ever. And Finland isn't exactly Canada, no mountains, no big hills, no way I'm wearing out a tyre in less than a year unless I commute on it.

Peaty's Tubeless Sealant
Does it really not dry out? I mean that's quite a substantial claim considering all the other do in a very short time. Are they claiming it literally takes one fill for the life of the tyre which in my case can he several years?!

Qualifying Results - Leogang DH World Cup 2017
@jimmythehat: er... Except Minaar is. He has more wins. Nico did however dominate for a period when it seems he was untouchable a lot like Gwin did back on Trek, but as results go it's Minaar.

Qualifying Results - Leogang DH World Cup 2017
To be fair Minaar did say they were simply "faster everywhere".. But Gwin has won here twice in a row, it obviously suits him, that maybe counts for more than wheel size.

Qualifying Results - Leogang DH World Cup 2017
Technically he's not as Minaar is GOAT. However I'm sure the Gwin has more wins in a shorter timeframe and will probably take the GOAT title if he continues racing long enough. The amount of wins he had for Trek alone must put him near the top, he's very talented no doubt, but he isn't necessarily better.

Aaron Pelttari's Toolbox - World Cup Mechanics
Hanger alignment tool is total crap. You can align any hanger by eye to tolerances that work percectly. If you can't your eyes are bad or you suck as a mechanic. Every time I have been forced to use the tool it has proved that I already aligned it fine and that the gears are fuggered for another reason.
