Behind the Numbers: Unno Dash
You mention at sag the suspension is "Still" in forward phase? Does that mean you wanted to say it's in rearward? Doesnt look like it

'Tenet' The Film Updates Logo After Tenet Components' Voices Concerns
They thinking you rip off logos from the movie is bad. It makes you look like a cheap copy pasting bastard.

'Tenet' The Film Updates Logo After Tenet Components' Voices Concerns
@fruitsd79: from a good director so have hope instead of complaining it's the wrong actors doing the same as the assholes that complained we got "brokeback mountain" joker or "Beetlejuice Batman"

Review: TRP's New DH-R EVO Brakes
Mineral oil actually requires less maintenance. Dot eats seals faster than mineral.

Review: TRP's New DH-R EVO Brakes
@WAKIdesigns: naaaah sram doesn't suffer from inconsistency because it's bad from the get go. It's just a product that gave up on being a good brake Also hope lightweight X series brakes were always shit. But V2's and V4's I've ridden were the most consistent brakes not named Gustav I've tried

Nukeproof Releases a Limited Short Travel, Lightweight Edition of the Reactor
@WAKIdesigns: @WAKIdesigns: why play the internet tough guy again? Sometimes you live in a place that's flatter therefore the speeds are lower and you want something that isn't numb at them. Building bigger jumps has nothing to do with that. I've had a habit of trying to rent bikes when I went to strange places on non bike trips and yes sometimes a smaller bike was more fun (if it was a good bike ofc) than a bigger one since the bigger one made the trail too easy and simply rolled down over it like a tank.

Field Trip: Is Buying a Used Mountain Bike Worth It?
@BikesNBites: I never said it's possible to "not have the first buyer". It's simply possible to satisfy a bigger amount of possible customers with a smaller volume of produced units - be it cars, bikes or clothes. As for TI bikes - only in some weird circles. For a while you got more for specific old road bikes but I think that collectors ship has sailed and hipsters now just buy expensive Cinelli stuff. As for cars going up in value it's a relatively new trend. For years most even super rare cars were not that expensive. My father owned (and totaled unfortunatelly) a lot of currently cult and expensive cars.

Field Trip: Is Buying a Used Mountain Bike Worth It?
@Caiokv: you can get lucky. Also it depends on what you expect from the bike. I want my bike to be in perfect condition not just good condition. $300 in parts and repairs is nothing. 150$ is a simple overhaul repair bill even in poor ass Poland. So you were lucky no suspension problems, no bearing problems were arising. Also no brake issues since those sometimes result in the service guys telling you to GTFO and get new ones.

Field Trip: Is Buying a Used Mountain Bike Worth It?
@Blackers: yeah. The problem is age doesn't mean shit. What matters is mileage. It's not even the skill level. It's that those bikes are ridden A LOT. Way more than any bike you own. Also since they are not ridden by the people who are tasked with servicing them a lot of damage goes unnoticed way longer than on your own bike which creates extra problems. It's not bad will on anyones part. Simply the way rental bikes are used makes it impossible for a large % of them to be in good shape. Also as someone who sometimes rides rental when I go someone on a non bike trip and want to pull 1 day of riding - I'm yet to ride a rental bike where everything is perfectly fine..

Field Trip: Is Buying a Used Mountain Bike Worth It?
Sometimes right after you buy it. Some new ones are built by monkeys and I don't even mean the great dry RS Boxxer debacle of 2010. My GF recently got a Canyon road bike. Overall rather good but her front derail has been setup by someone who must have been doing it for the first time in their life. It was setup so bad and in so mnay places I was literally confused as where to start
