It’s Time to Recalibrate Our Ideas About Chainstay Length
Cool, we’ve completed the 10yr bicycle lunar cycle, we’ve reentered the short vs long chainstay debate.

First Look: DT Swiss Introduces New FR 541 Rim
@Saether: just checked their site again. Not sure why I remembered them being asym. May have been another wheel manufacture. Newmen is the only other alloy wheel I recall being pretty comparable in design and weight to dtswiss.

First Look: DT Swiss Introduces New FR 541 Rim
@tkrug: definitely a replacement to the FR560. Bringing the FR rim series into the non eyelet, phr washer era of dt rims. I’ve been running HX531 on the dh bike with good success. It’s basically between the new FR and the ex511. Thicker spoke bed to allow for higher overall wheel load capacity or “strength”. Love the idea of the new rim. Still wish they’d go to slightly asym on the spokes though. A little offset goes a long way in getting even spoke tension on either side of the wheel, which I personally believe leads to a wheel holding consistent tension longer, so less touch ups needed. Assym lacing only balances it so much. And on the front wheel at least, there’s more benefit to running symmetrical lacing than not imo. Before someone says it, yes, I'm aware Newmen makes similar rims and use offset. DT is way easier for me to get personally.

Orbea Occam M10 *Like New

$4199 USD
This is an almost new 2021 Orbea Occam, medium. It has about 6 rides on it is all. The pictures show a couple small scratches on the downtube, mainly from transport. It’s the exact same build as the 2022, except for the DT XM1650 wheelset, instead of the Mavic. The Fox DPX2 instead of DPS, with the fork being a 2021 instead of the updated 2022 model. And a High Roller 2 front tire instead of Dissector. For all other parts specs please go to orbea site, link below. This bike retails for $6500 currently.

13 Dual Slalom Bikes from Strait Acres Slalom Invitational
I would like to know if they’re running tubes or “tubes”. Tubolito isn’t really in the same category as a normal rubber tube….

@ratedgg13: “we’ve had decades of investment into ICE.” Do you think the world can survive another Thomas Midgley, only in the name of EVs instead of gasoline or cfc’s?

Truckworx - Crankworx Whistler 2022
@mikelevy: everybody has an easier time accusing and vilifying what they see in front of them, ie. A huge diesel truck in their neighborhood. Nobody bothers to look at their own impact via consumption of pointless products and purchases from overseas. Yeah, typing this on an iPhone, also only my 5th one since 2008, how many people brag about going through 5 a year? Or having to own the newest, latest and greatest one every year? I’m also an avid supporter of right to repair. If fairphone could run iOS, I’d buy one. So many people seem to think that EVs are going to save the planet, but because it’s not in their neighborhood, they don’t care what lithium mining does to other countries, and negatively affects the people living there. Everyone on this thread should research how the local communities have been affected in South American countries by these mines. How much diesel is burned in the production and transport of just the raw material to make the batteries, that on their own have toxic waste concerns for disposal once they reach the end of their life. How much coal and diesel is burned just to charge EVs, since everyone fears nuclear. While you’re at it, have fun looking at how much NO2, sulfur, and CO2 the cruise ship industry on its own creates in comparison, among all the other health and pollution concerns that come with those. Check out how much the private jet industry boomed during Covid, something Bill Gates admits to being a “guilty pleasure” of his. How many tonnes of CO2 those people rack up flying around, because they can’t be bothered to fly public with the rest of us peons. While their numerous mansions sit heated and air conditioned. And then countries who propose carbon tax, but at the same time give exemption to private jets and yachts, you know, since the owners can’t be bothered to pay a tax. Checkout how our presidential administration travels to Europe to discuss climate policy. If you’re into crypto, research the difference between proof of work, and proof of stake, along with the amount of energy that is required to power the servers running these calculations, primarily based in China and powered by coal. The EV industry has created a new wave of virtue signaling, and keeping people fighting against each other while real damage is still being done elsewhere. But yeah, hate your neighbor for their vehicle choice, because THAT is what’s going to destroy the planet. Vassals guilt trip the Serfs, and keep them fighting each other, so that they can continue on with their business.
