Is "Traditional" a Good Thing When It Comes to Wheels? - Pinkbike Poll
Right. Even something that strays little from convention like straight-pull spokes are a PITA. Try to re-tension a spoke and they turn (and I know there are solutions, but there shouldn't have to be).

Fashion vs. Fit: Is Longer Always Better? - Opinion
Right on. You just reminded me that my back always ached after a long ride, but these days I can ride far longer and harder without feeling like a need a massage. And I used to be paranoid about hitting my knees on the stem, and haven't done that for some time.

Frostbike 2018: New Tires, Shoes, and Sealant
@TucsonDon: Ta. I've tried that but no luck. Usually sidewalls are more of a slice than a hole and it just won't seal properly. Even tried poking a small piece of cotton cloth as per a suggestion by an AZ resident like you and that'll only work sometimes. But as you say immediately above, flats are now a rarity compared to running tubes.

SRAM Eagle Electronic Shifting Spotted on Nino Schurter's Scott
If it sounded like a blaster, when I caught someone on the trail I'd be smashing those buttons. Pew pew pew pew! More important than gear selection.

For full effect, blow as you pronounce the 'W' like Stewie Griffin saying 'cool whip'.

Just use it as you would 'while' if it precedes a word that starts with a vowel sound.

Ask Pinkbike: Dirt Jumpers, Wheelies, and Extra-Soft Springs
My spring rate is also too high. I'm gonna take the air can off and put in the lathe.

Frostbike 2018: Pedals, Apparel, Fat Bikes, and a Golden Fork
They go on and off very easy with brake cleaner and I cut them off when I've worn a hole in them.
