First Look: Newmen Components' New Wheels Have Spokes Made of String
Spokes are always in tension anyway... Nothing is compressing a normal spoke... The nipple is assembled from the outside of the rim. "String" is perfectly legitimate

Vista Outdoor To Sell Bell, Giro, Blackburn, & Other Brands
You boycotting plonkers should have bought MORE of bike products from Vista... and moved them into a profitable harm free industry, instead, they have just dumped a load of decent cycling brands and are now fully focused on producing weapons. Applause to you all.

SmartMousse: Puncture Resistance from MrWolf - Video
I couldn't be bothered to watch the video, but from the images alone it appears to be a tubless tire... without a tubless ready rim, but with 2 inner tubes. Reinventing the wheel is one thing... reinventing the innertube is another. Let us just meditate on "We Solve Problems"...

Good Ideas Executed Poorly - Opinion
@thuren: wrong again. Do you think 5 bolts in shear will hold a car wheel on? The conical section is to align the wheel to the hub properly, so that all the bolts can be fitted properly - so equal TENSION can be applied. It is hub to wheel friction which keeps the wheel on. The friction is created by the tension in the bolts

Good Ideas Executed Poorly - Opinion
@OTBSteve: Yes.. I had 2 sets of wheels, Saint hubs, Mavic rims. both 20mm thru axle. the hubs must have been of different ages. One had a centrelock that could be removed with a cassette tool, the other needed a larger version! I assume the smaller (now common fitment came later, as Shimano had worked out how to get the small tool over the 20mm axle tube) I love shimano stufff... but having to buy a £25 special socket to remove a rotor left a sour taste! Also, the entire centrelock spline was larger, and those large bore rotors are like hens teeth!

Thule Velospace 918 Rack - Review
@StraightLineJoe: no, what I'm saying is you didnt set it up right, or follow the instructions. Your point is about as valid as if you said "this bike geometry is all wrong" and you were riding someone else's bike but you didn't change the seat position for example.

Thule Velospace 918 Rack - Review
@StraightLineJoe: @StraightLineJoe: sounds like you didn't read the instructions where it says "we recommend the use of a secondary bungee cord or cam strap to secure the bikes to the back frame" Thule even sell these racks with a Thule branded ratchet strap just to loop around the frames and onto the rack... regarding fork rubbing... yeah it happens if you dont spend the time to adjust the position of the bikes properly. I use mine to transport my road time trial bike, which is far more awkward than an MTB. Just learn how to position them!
