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

@thuren: the bolts are only in tension...

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!

The Short, Turbulent Life of URT Suspension
@TEAM-ROBOT: Becuase MTBs have been burdened with the rebirth of the megarange cassette... its impossible to stand and climb on an "enduro" gear of 28F:50R! LOL

@RichardCunningham: I guess you only ever watch the highlights then! In which case, you would be correct. But in the real world, no!

The Short, Turbulent Life of URT Suspension
"If one considers that much of road riding and almost all of BMX is spent pedaling out of the saddle" WRONG Road biking is nearly entirely ALL seated, apart from sprints or extremely steep climbs!
