Comparison Test: Are Wider Rims Better? We Try 4 Different Widths
@mattwragg: Do you have anything to back up your statement "There should be no difference in compliance in the rim going from 471 to 511". I'm interested because a larger section rim will have a higher rim torsional stiffness, which results in more lateral stiffness. Agreed tyre stiffness is a more dominant effect.

Will become pretty academic when we all start using tyre inserts in the next couple of years. This will make wide tyres redundant and the 25mm rim will start looking good again.

Eurobike Randoms II - Eurobike 2018
@dthomp325: Can you explain your numbers, I'm a little confused. Are you saying a 1kg weight reduces will reduce climbing power by 1%. This is about right. Or are you saying 1%/kg, so 88% change for an 88kg rider. If so, I think you are mixing your drinks a little. All we are changing by adding 1kg weight is the amount of energy required to get the system, bike plus rider to the top of the hill. So 1kg, for a 100kg system is 1%. So, with 3kg of water in your pack, do you notice a significant difference in climbing when it is full compared to when it is empty, I doubt it?

Eurobike Randoms II - Eurobike 2018
@casman86: What do you pedal up the hill, Just the bike, or you and the bike. One kg to the weight of the system, bike plus rider, is a small increase in %age. Unless you are an 8st XC whippet on a 20lb bike, racing for the podium; weight is pretty irrelevant, within reason.

Love the weights on the Orange. At last somebody understands weight doesn't matter! Weight is only a metric to allow marketing to hang their bullshit on...

Must Watch: Brandon Semenuk - Raw 100 V4
Insanely impressive skills. But I just don't like his style, kinda looks like he try to clench his buttocks and hold a poo in!
