Why are the black ones smaller? I badly want a large black one.

Mike Kazimer's 2024 Predictions
But why are bikes getting heavier? Honest question. Is it because there's some new carbon layup method that is cheaper, but maintains the same durability but sacrifices weight? And companies are switching to that method to save cash? Or are bikes just that much longer/larger? Maybe a slight increase in size of everything (pedals, 31.8, stanchion diameter, larger brakes, etc) just adds up? I used to ride a first gen carbon Patrol that was sub 30lbs. Why can't we do that anymore?

Video: Tech Tuesday - A Quickfire Run-Through on Setting Up Tubeless
@rat-race-wheels: yeah looks like it. I went down the research rabbit hole just now. It's just generic polypropylene tape. Looks like anyone could start a rim tape company with a couple grand and an Alibaba order hahah!

@petemacmtb: thanks for this! I love the description for their tape. Spot on. I need some tape to redo my gravel setup, I'll give this ago. There's no way tubeless tape is special tape. The cycling world just put their marketing spin on it. I wonder what this type of tape was originally used for or intended for before cycling rebranded it?

Agreed. Good thing that task is only for engineers working on developing firmware for the electronics on that ebike.

I just picked these shorts up for gravel riding 3 weeks ago and they're literally the best fitting shorts I've ever worn, period. And I mean all shorts, not just bike shorts. I think properly tailored is a good way to describe them. They're not straight cut. Not skin tight, but just loose enough to not be a lycra power ranger if that's not your jam. Photos don't do them justice. Fit and that unique fabric are easily worth that coin. Zipper pockets and adjustable waist is perfect. Well done Fox design team.

@tonit91: Late last year, Michelin shut down a bunch of plants temporarily due to something to do with fear of gas cutoff from Russia. I don't fully understand what went down, you can go Google around, but some trickle down effects of the current Russia/Ukraine war affected automotive and bike tire manufacturing entirely, not just limited to Michelin.

We Are One Announces New Convergence Carbon Rims & Wheels
@mgrantorser: dang that sucks! Glad you found something that works for you. Yeah the internals definitely don't scream "Clydesdale friendly" as they're quite light and not overbuilt looking.
