Damien Oton's Devinci Spartan - Finale Ligure EWS 2017
@thejake: I didnt mean you had based it on nothing, I meant the advice given in bike shops, which I myself gave when I worked in one about lining up the lever with the arm. I didnt mean you had based it on nothing. To me it was advice I heard and was told, so then went on and also advised other people when buying and setting up a bike of the same thing.

Damien Oton's Devinci Spartan - Finale Ligure EWS 2017
@thejake: what you have always heard is based on nothing. It seems like a good idea to have it set up like that so braking is comfortable, which is probably perfect for a shopper bike. Descending is completely different and mountain biking in general, rolling the levers up puts more of the pressure onto the palm of your hand instead of relying on your thumb. If you imagine the force is travelling straight into your arm, how would you position your hand irrespective of the brake lever in order to resist that force, you would place your palm onto the grip directly infront of the force, instead of on top of the bar with your thumb wrapped round. Test it out for a couple of rides, most people find it makes a big difference to control due to having to grip less.

Las Vegas Cirque du Cycling, Lap Two - Interbike 2017
I worked in a bike shop 16 years ago and someone came in trying to flog this foam insert for tyres, it rode awfully and taking a tyre on and off was a nightmare. He had another one that was a tyre foam combo that you could roll of the rim cornering too quickly.

Inside Acros
"Acros have one advantage over every other wheelmaker out there - their parent company, HWG, is a bearing manufacturer. While the two companies are separate legally, and Acros still have to place orders and so forth for what they need, it means that they can get custom bearings designed specifically for what they need, for instance they can order custom sizes, something not usually possible through a conventional supplier." This can only be a disadvantage for the customer? Are custom sized bearings really necessary?
