Tested: Does a Lockout Actually Make Climbing Faster?
I am shocked to learn suspension is not a significant factor when climbing up a short road section. Who would have thought...

Wolf Tooth Launches New '8-Bit Pack Pliers' Multi Tool
@iammarkstewart: I am in Marin county. Thats where I ride the most. So are the guys I see riding out on the trails with the massive backpacks that keep me guessing what they might be filled with. So far we established chain breaker... Anyway, No, at home I don’t cary jackets, bear sprays, tools, pumps, tubes... really anything but water. Loops out here a around 10 miles and the worst thing that can happen is you run across a cougar and the am not talking kitty cat I am talking wealthy older lady... also just roll out the next best fire road and call an über... Anyway, yes if I am doing a massive shuttle ride in the sierras for example I bring some stuff, but honestly never more than what could fit in my shorts pocket. You say 50k rides... so in the worst case 25k back... thats 5 Hours of brisk hiking, no need to spend a night... yeah it would suck but so does Carrying a super heavy backpack with the major difference that if something breaks it only happens once in a while but you carry the heavy bag all the time... Only issue i had in the last few years was a completely busted rim... nothing fiting a backpack could have helped me. I jogged out 8 miles of prime Utah downhill with my bike on my back and I didn’t even have the slowest time of the day on Strava. Yeah I needed new cleats after that one and yeah it sucked but looking back it’s a good story

Wolf Tooth Launches New '8-Bit Pack Pliers' Multi Tool
Finger crossed I never had a broken chain on trail. The question is how much stuff you want to carry all the Time for using it every once in a decade? Seems like wearing ski boots all year because you’re planning on hitting the slopes around Christmas. Personally I prefer to ride without tools and other stuff/junk and walk home a few miles once a year or so... even with cleats not a big deal... a run is still a workout. I always wonder what folks are bringing on rides when I see groups of guys heading out and everyone is wearing 30l backpack stuffed to the point of zippers almost popping?

Video: In-Depth Analysis of Flat Pedal Efficiency with the Strength Factory
MTB-Strength-Factory ...so you fall off twice just trying to sprint/put in some power on a stationary bike that's not moving or bouncing over rocks and roots and you still don't see the disadvantage? At this point I would recommend you put out a 10 second video statement saying you like flats better. Simple. Some do some don't.. its okay.
