Fashion vs. Fit: Is Longer Always Better? - Opinion
WAKIdesigns: first I believe we had an argument about this 8 or so years ago when you told me that longer was better and that short stems where bad (maybe it was darkhorse) second you make a good poin. when I talk about not being able to buy a freeride bike i.e. They don't make them. This is a lot of what I'm taking about so many company's claim having a freeride bike but they aren't they are heavy "enduro bikes" the bb is too low the rake is way too high they are way too large, doing a trick is ridiculous. This is why we have no more Robby B's anymore

Ask Pinkbike: Dirt Jumpers, Wheelies, and Extra-Soft Springs
fanatyk-bb: it depends on what your doing if you want to learn to be a djer or slope style rider a bmx would be better it's easier to learn tricks like 360s and tail whips. But If you want to improve your bike handling skills on the trail and be more confident or doing dh or freeride than its going to be better to learn on a dj. It is closer to your bike A bmx bike is an awesome option but there are limitations and doing tricks or jumps you learned on a bmx may feel totally different on your all mountain or dh rig. As brassine above was inferring that a bmx was better than a dj I would say a dj is much better to learn on than bmx if your doing freeride or big dh jumps or road gaps. Bmxers are cheap thow and still can give great benifit to any rider so a bird in hand is worth two in the bush.

North American Handmade Bicycle Show 2018
OzMike: I was going to say go to a frame school we have a few in the us but I see your on the other side of the water i don't know anything about your schools or what they cost.I would suggest getting an oxy acetylene torch (fairly cheap easy too use/learn) and try building a lugged brazed frame you won't need a mill just files and saws. And you can order tubes and premade lugs at pre determined angles. That's the easiest way I've seen to give it a go. The torch can be used to weld cut braze solder and heat metal with for other things they are super handy.

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
@yeti951SD: I think your right but I also think the manufacturing issues could be avoided by using what people now would consider smaller ugly looking tubing which would not pass any market test. What I mean is that you could probably build a steel frame with better performance than alum at the same weight it would just look too ugly to sell nowdays.

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
@half-man-half-scab: It is common practice aloop system isn't even required. A lathe or mill cnc or mechanical has a catch bin or area that the scraps land in. it is common practice also to clean your machine after each piece for accuracy reasons and cleaning the machining surface. You put all the scrap in in a bin and get the absolute best scrap price for your material. If my high school machine shop and machinist school and current job do it as well as every school and machine shop I've ever heard of or visited has done it I imagine everyone who can does it. It payes well.

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
@WAKIdesigns: This commuter comment might be the most ignorant thing I've ever heard you say. Commuting is not about convenience. It is the opposite of convenience. And for many it is a sacrifice don't belittle that. If what you are saying was true it wouldn't be so difficult to convince anyone including bikers to commute. Also the first response you get when you tell a non biker your a commuter is usually holly shit that must suck then Usually second is how far.

Shimano Patent Filing Raises Electric Questions
@Dangerous-Dan: that was the point I was making nobody had mentioned it. I didn't bring it up to cause a scare in the ebike hate crowd I'm not sure how I feel about them yet my first inclination is usually the freedom of choice I.e it's not for me but who am I to tell you what to do. On the other hand it does effect me in a way so whose rights are more important. the guy wanting a little cheat on the way up at the possible cost of our trail rights I don't know. Time will tell.

Shimano Patent Filing Raises Electric Questions
@Dangerous-Dan: Well I was referring to sections towards the bottom I think 0076. It refers to a part 40 on the pic it's in the center of the bb maybe it's the power meter though. The way they refer to part 40 throughout seems to reference some sort of motor.

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
@IamSeaDevil: So in rewelding frames there is the idea that a rewelded frame will A.crack in the same place or near it or B. never be as strong as originally. I have always wondered if carbon repair advocates have the same opinions about carbon repair. It seems like a mixed bag opinion wise from people who are objective but I have had many people argue with me that their frame is just as strong as before and I don't quite buy that. I would legitimately like to hear some opinions on it. (Also I'm not fond of the argument that they do it on airplanes so it should work on bikes they are different beasts that's the most common argument I got from people.)
