Here's My Zerode Taniwha Test Bike - Tell Me What You Want to Know
@PhillipJ: Newsflash: Not everyone knows about pinion gear boxes. Many bike riders have never seen one in person. That's why someone asks a question like this. So the question stands, is it possible?

Knolly Moves Entire Lineup to 157mm Spacing
I've got a 190x12 on my fatbike. Had to get creative with endcaps because most are 197x12. There's also 170x12 and 177x12 and QR versions of all those too. But really, 170 is the same as 177 with swapable endcaps and the same with 190 and 197.

Pole Bicycles Announces New CNC-Machined 'Machine' - Press Release
@raytheotter: the volume of landfill consumed by discarded carbon bikes is less of a concern than greenhouse gasses and nonsequestered byproducts. I think it is naive or deceitful to claim these as eco friendly bikes. The amount of energy needed to make aluminum is harmful to the environment. Machining from billets makes this significantly worse. While geo or hydro sourced energy seems to solve that issue to a casual observer, it actually doesn’t. It’s the same problem posed by ethanol fuel in America. Yeah, it is theoretically better than burning petroleum products. But in the real world it displaces food crops to South America. So the Amazon is being deforested to grow food because american famers are using their land to grow corn for ethanol. It’s the same for clean energy used to make aluminum. Building a bike with a massively energy inefficient method is not eco friendly. It simply displaces other consumers to aluminum suppliers without clean energy. Clean energy is good! Using it up for innefiencent production cannot be called clean though. With that said. I don’t base my buying criteria on that and would have no problem buying this bike. Rather, just calling attention to the fact that this bike isn’t less polluting than carbon.

Don't Punch the Baby - Opinion
@Nathan6209: in some places motorized bikes won’t be a problem. But in most places they will be. There’s a reason motorcycles and hikers don’t use the same trails. It is my belief that we won’t be able to limit the speed of ebikes. Thus, the only way to preserve trail access is to treat them as motorcycles. Also, we dont need more people in the sport here. And there is no way we can outnumber other city park users. It’s an interesting dilemma that I don’t think most bikers have ever seriously considered. How many bikers are too many bikers?

Don't Punch the Baby - Opinion
What I learned from this article is that I'm against the agenda of People for Bikes. They label states that classify a motorized bike as a motorized vehicle as "problematic". I prefer them to be regulated as motorcycles. While ebikes are currently slower than what we traditionally think of as motorcycles, that won't last long. They will soon be indistinguishable in terms of performance from motorcycles yet look like a normal bicycle. And when I say indistinguishable performance, that means it can accelerate fast enough to burn out and will have a top speed well beyond what is acceptible on public trails. We could try to differentiate between different sizes of motors or other criteria, but I believe that would be a futile effort. It wouldn't work at all. Legal and illegal bikes will look identical except to extreme bicycle geeks. It just isn't feasible for cops to police the city parks looking for people who have illegal bikes or illegally modified bikes.

Fouriers Quick True Tool - Review
A zip tie actually does a better job. It's easier to affix, remove, adjust, etc.

A zip tie is better when traveling. At home a truing stand is better. You couldn't pay me to use this tool.

Fouriers Quick True Tool - Review
This thing is not even as good as a zip tie. The bendability of the zip tie is superior to this because it allows truing of extremely warped rims without gouging the side.

Pinkbike Poll: What Would You Change About Red Bull Rampage?
Better camera angles/production. Repeatedly they had cameras in almost ok locations but then didn't switch between them quick enough and we'd miss some of each run.
