MIPS Says WaveCel Helmet Technology Falls 'Far Below' Bontrager's Injury Prevention Claims
Holy eff everyone. Can we not hire one person who knows statistics enough to look over any of these PR claims? The original waveCel paper describes that waveCel is better than standard EPS helmets, and MIPS is better than EPS helmets. There was NO statistical tests done to determine if waveCel is better than MIPS. Trek/Bontrager are using poor wording in their PR and are making it seem that waveCel is significantly better than MIPS, which was NOT demonstrated in this paper. Yes, the magnitude of the force reduction was greater with waveCel, but we cannot say this is significantly different. Now, obviously, MIPS is upset, so they release some bold claim saying that waveCel is 'far below' Trek's numbers. Then it says that 'preliminary tests...', which means they have not replicated the study. Maybe they have done one or two tests and it looks like Trek's numbers were inflated, but until they entirely replicate the waveCel paper and discredit it, whatever they say kind of means nothing. Moral of the story: can a company full of professional engineers not get one person with any knowledge of statistics to look your statements over before you make silly claims?

Like new front wheel off an old 2015 Trek Remedy 9 that I semi-destickered. I mounted two sets of tires up tubeless to it, but I don't think I ever even rode it with them before I switched to a different front wheel. Comes with tubeless rim strip already installed. Non-boost 15x100 hub. $60 obo

I have a custom Trek Stache 29 plus bike that I am looking to sell. It's a mash-up/custom build of a 2016 Stache frame with components from a 2017 Stache 9.7. There are a few different parts I have put on as my own personal preference (outlined below). I have maintained the bike at the local shop that I work at and everything is in great working condition. It's been an amazing hardtail for southern Ontario trails and works well in the winter too. I'm selling to get something new for 2018. The bike will be sold as it appears in the pictures with the exception of a Bontrager DropLine seatpost (instead of the 9point8 post installed) Spec list: Trek Stache frame (29+, 29 regular and 27.5/650b plus compatible) Rockshox Yari RC @ 120mm (with Ass Savers Mudder front fender) SunRingle Duroc 50 SL wheelset, set up tubeless Bontrager Chupacabra 29x3.0" tires (same as new XR2 29x3.00) SRAM GX 11-speed groupset Wolf Tooth direct mount oval chainring, 30 tooth Bontrager Kovee Elite Saddle with Ti rails SRAM Guide R brakes Chromag Ranger v2 stem @ 60mm Chromag Cutlass carbon handlebar @ 750mm DMR Deathgrips, camo, thin and soft *Bontrager DropLine dropper seatpost, 125mm travel (not shown in photo) Shimano Saint pedals can be included for extra, if needed.
