Behind the Bike - Knolly's New Fugitive
@dthomp325: Quality cosmetic repairs, but not structural ones. We had no methods in aerospace for repairs of carbon primary structure because there was no way it could be guaranteed. Steel on the other hand!

Review: Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR 29
@watermouse: Pretty standard to debulk every few layers though in aerospace, not worthy of a new marketing driven "Stealth Air Process" naming!

Review: Cotic FlareMAX
@j-t-g: A while ago that was true as there was no insurance in place. But that has changed and Starlings are available to the USA and Canada with full warranty.

Review: Cotic FlareMAX
@j-t-g: Starling will ship to USA and Canada and and will honour warranties. Why do you think they won't?

@WAKIdesigns: Chaps from Sick cannot weld. All of their frames are built by sub contract.

Bikes with 29" wheels do not necessarily have longer wheelbases. The bike is longer, from front of front wheel to back of back wheel. But the contact patch stays in the same place (with the same geometry). There's so much pseudo science applied in bikes. Marketing (and riders) cling on to stuff that intuitively feels correct, but if you examine the simple scientific facts it falls apart. Bigger wheels have a larger contact area, being the best example. No they don't! The whole long bikes can't go round corners is the same. They are marginally longer. 50mm reach may be a biggish change, but 50mm on wheelbase is bugger all, 5%.
