Talking About Tire Pressure - Pinkbike Poll
Definitely love the imperial units; and the discussion. I’m looking to answer B and D to the last question. I use the gauge and the feel. Don’t underestimate the feel, which is everything. No doubt the tubeles advances are huge, allowing relatively lower pressure when conditions call for them. I find that running tubeless, with an often half-crusty valves, the gauge isn’t always accurate and air doesn’t flow in freely.

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
@jeremiahwas: yes. Steel is much heavier. I mean, traditional cromoly / mixed allow steel is strong but heavy. Nobody is going back to that. Titanium would work and has been used. I think the material cost is the reason that’s not prevalent these days.

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
I had that thought also. I think the focus on these 2 leading materials helped to keep the article’s scope focused where the real competition is now... but what happened to the old lightning frames? I’m guessing the process is similar to aluminum but also figure the actual cost nowadays probably exceeds carbon. The feel on carbon is bound to be more forgiving but no doubt the titanium would be the most durable of them all!

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
Wow, thanks for this excellent article. I’m definitely glad I read this thoughtful and thorough review of the processes involved to make both carbon and aluminum frames. It seems entirely honest about the limitations, advantages, and challenges for both materials. I still love my 90’s GT aluminum frame. It seems indestructible to me and I’m hopeful my relatively new carbon frames will last as long. I tend not to destroy stuff even though I’ve had my share of over the handlebar wipeouts in my day. I feel more hopeful the carbon frames will last long enough for my young boys to ride them someday after reading this than I did before; I feel better about the purchase of carbon now as well. For purposes of riding uphill as well as down, there’s no doubt in my mind that the lightest available frame and accessories are also the most desirable! Excellent work RC. Thank you.

Dude, cool view. Might not be a double backflip but I’ve got no idea why anyone would complain that it’s not POD qualified. Probably some e-bike riders who couldn’t get this much air on a chairlift who are worried about their focus.

Pinkbike Poll: Does Bike Weight Matter?
No sense paying huge money for a heavy bike even with full suspension, unless you’re going for an e-bike!
