Tech Randoms: Prototype Drivetrain Parts, Tires & More - Fort William DH World Cup 2022

May 19, 2022 at 22:27
by Mike Kazimer  
It was a busy scene today on and off the hill in Fort William, Scotland. The racers were taking in the classic, brutal track, scoping their lines ahead of practice tomorrow. In the pits, bikes were getting assembled and tuned up in preparation for the rocky onslaught that awaits. Extra wheels and tires are on hand, and many of them will surely end up getting pulled into service - those Scottish stones don't take any prisoners.

Now take a moment to enjoy the photos that Ross Bell, Andy Vathis, and Nathan Hughes gathered.

 Do so many people think it's taboo to say someone looks beautiful?
Or are they downvoting because beauty is in the eye of the beholder?

 @IntoTheEverflow: I think it's just because we are a bunch of dudes commenting on girls, this site is very very heavily male dominated. It might seem less weird if we also had some people commenting on what a smoking hot silver fox Greg is ❤️

 @hamncheez: The line is actually pretty obvious: IS IT RELEVANT??? Do good looks help one ride a bicycle with more skill? If the answer is 'yes' then by all means comment on a person's looks and it won't be creepy.

 @nzandyb: Here is a question for you- what is relevant? The Seths Bike Hacks guy makes more money off mountain bikes than most racers do, maybe even more than all racers do. This is probably fair as he provides more value for sponsors than many racers. Is it relevant to comment on his racing record, or on his ability to entertain and engage on bike related topics?

I just looked up three successful female cyclists on instagram. One of them is the best female downhiller of all time, with 300k followers. The two other cyclists, while successful are not the Queen. But they are very physically attractive, and much more frequently post images that accentuate their beauty more than the first woman, and they both have wayyy more insta followers. Is it relevant to react to their attractiveness on posts where that seems to be a major focus? What about other posts of theirs where that isn't the case? Just like the Seths Hacks guy, they can probably pull in lots of sponsorship money without having as high a pedigree of racing results. Does that allow for comment on non-racing things like beauty?

I don't know one way or the other, just thinking aloud.
  • 4 0
 @hamncheez: Killer observations pal. A thoughtful mind on a complex subject. The only problem with monkeydot comment (as I see it) is insensitivity. How would she feel reading uninvited opinions on her looks? As well as how would less attractive female racers feel? Public forums are simply a great place to practice good maners.

 telemetry literally means to measure remotely. Never is, live readings of data implied as being mutually exclusive from data logging, which would be data acquisition. the only way to know if it is telemetry or not would be to know if they are transmitting data remotely or if it is being acquired by equipment on the bike. but..... potato tomato.

 That Buzzworks headset not being machined deep enough to accept the full bearing, and then having a sealed dust cover floating on top of it serving no purpose at all, really bugs me. The amount of cowboys in this industry is painful to see.

 Question: look at the picture of minars custom link. Normal bushings instead of the holy bearing solution at the rear shock from Bronson, Nomad, Megatower..-models. Is it not so important after all?

 Important, but it also makes changing springs into a 20 minute job, whereas a shock fitted with bushings can have a spring swapped out in about 1 minute and a half.

 I had the exact same thoughts. The pro's seem to find some benefit in it (or Ochains sponsorship budget is sky high).
  • 4 0
 its hard to describe its benefits, but to me it has nothing to do with kickback specifically. its more so just a uniquely incredible feeling under my feed and small crap smoothed out even more. its and odd sensation and not what i was expecting but im definitely into ochain!
  • 7 0
 I have a theory: when the rear brake is locked up you’re going to get pedal feedback no matter how fast you’re actually traveling. Race-braking (late and hard) plus the braking bumps that develop over the weekend probably mean these folks hit stuff with a locked rear wheel often enough for them to notice the difference. Add to that very little downside from weight or pedaling mushy engagement for DH and I’m not surprised to see it being used.
  • 1 1
 dampens chainslap, which is not kick back, but transmits vibration to the pedals
  • 2 0
 @melanthius: I am in no way as fast as those guys but i tend to lock up my rearwheel when i am pushing as hard as I can, mostly its just for an instance but i notice the rearwheel locking up quite a bit. Riding a fairly high pivot (non idler) bike i struggled with the bikes behaviour under braking, the kicks were very noticeable when the rearwheel locked up. The biggest problem was the difference between rotating wheel and locked up wheel. Often everything was just fine and as soon as the rearwheel locked up the bike started kicking and loosing traction, even to the point where the rearwheel would not start gripping anymore even if i got off the brakes a bit.

I bought an O-chain and now the suspension feels basically the same, braking or not. Well worth the money, I hope it holds up, with all the elastomers and springs beeing basically unsealed.
  • 1 0
 @optimumnotmaximum: I noticed a similar effect from going to an Onyx hub. The engagement is instant but soft because of the sprag clutch. I found that pedal feedback with a locked rear wheel was still there but much less noticeable because it comes through as a push instead of an impact. I’m not sure it makes the suspension work a ton better but it definitely distracts me less than it did with a pawl hub and that matters.

 Because Orange still havent worked out how to make the rear suspension work properly if you use the rear brake
  • 7 2
 @CM999: There are pros and cons to brake squat aka anti-rise. More anti-rise will keep the geometry consistent when braking, as the fork will dive, the rear will squat and the head angle will keep quite static, however the suspension won't be as active. Less anti-rise and the suspension is more active but the front of the bike dives more. I think most brands take a middle ground, where the suspension does squat to preserve geometry but not to the extent that it makes the suspension harsh.

 @melonhead1145: Wont be as active. My 5 felt like my hardtail when breaking the backend would bounce an skip all over the place
  • 1 0
 @CM999: its usually a combination of kickback under braking and high antirise numbers. The antirise numbers of the orange 5 are hardly enough to make it a hardtail under braking.
  • 1 0
 @CM999: with a fairly high monopivot (as with a fairly high vpp) its quite impossible to get low antirise numbers. this is only achievable with a fourbar as you can move the virtual pivot very far forward, which lowers antirise.

(maybe you could do it with a vpp too, but its way harder than with a fourbar)
