Randoms Round 4 - Eurobike 2017
@therealtylerdurden: run over a lot of boards covered in nails out on the trail? All I'm saying is that any sealant under the sun, including the stuff in my cabinet right at this moment, will seal nail holes. In fact, I Suspect a tubeless casing itself will seal a hole that size pretty well with NO sealant. When I get a half-inch cut, however, Stan's doesn't seal that. If you wanna impress(which is the point of trade show demonstrations) me show me that you work better than one of the other 50 different sealants already on the market.

@therealtylerdurden: something different than what Stan's was doing at tradeshows 15+ years ago.

A board with nails in it is the "easy mode" for tire sealants. Any competent sealant can seal those holes. If that's the best you can come up with for the trade show, you need to get with the times.

Spank's Foam Filled Rim Promises Better Reliability and Feel - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@gdnorm: "isolated bench numbers translates to any real world benefit is the definition of snake oil." Really? Pretty sure the definition of snake oil is "bottles of fake cure-all sold by traveling salesmen in the 1800s without any testing to backup their claims, often with direct knowledge of the lack of efficacy of their products." The very fact it has been tested in a controlled manner, & that those testing results have been published, contradicts your claim.

Spank's Foam Filled Rim Promises Better Reliability and Feel - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@gdnorm: Thanks for going straight to ad hominem, makes my point for me. As for "adult stuff", since we're going down the "if you don't agree with me you're a child" path, How about admitting that you were wrong with your "snake oil" claim? Snake oil insinuates that the product has no benefit, while they have formal testing backing up their claims. Instead of admitting you were wrong, like an adult, you moved the goalposts, made the goalposts unreasonably specific, & entirely dismissed their isolated testing, which is LITERALLY THE ONLY WAY TO BACK UP A CLAIM ABOUT ONE COMPONENT OF A SYSTEM. If we're talking about "adult stuff," rule one, on page one, of how to be an adult, is "admit when you were wrong."

@gdnorm: Your fallacy is: "On The Spot." "Perform this impossible test, or I won't believe you, regardless of your other evidence that I've dismissed summarily" is not a reasonable argument.

@JamesR2026: That's basically the same time, my 2003/04 big hit had an asymetric rear.

Marco Osborne's Cannondale Jekyll: EWS Bike Check - Crankworx Whistler 2017
Or he's just like 9/10 of the people I've seen running these style stems & he just didn't pay attention. About the only one of these I've seen with the top gap gone is mine. He's also running the seatrail backcountry research strap, instead of the "Muthaload" one that's longer & actually designed for frame, too.
