Starling's New 170mm 29er With a Gearbox - Bespoked Show 2019
@chachmonkey: Have had a Vyron for nearly 3 years now. Have experimented to see how long a full charge would last, got over a year before it needed it. Great bit of kit and easy to swap between bike

Squamish Shark Attack with Sid and Ricky - Video
The song is by Springtime Carnivore, never thought I'd see it on a bike edit though! Buy her album if you like this, it's fantastic. :-)

Magura's New MT Trail Brake - Sea Otter 2016
the first generation had their issues for sure but last years models have been great for me. Have the MT5's and they are quite easy to bleed, no drag, and incredible power. Can see why you might want less power in the rear actually...

Schwalbe Evo Aerothan Innertube - Review
Man you people bitch a lot. $36 to save over a half pound of rotating weight is an incredible deal. Many people can't be bothered to run tubeless because a) it's a complete hassle and you have to carry a tube anyway, and b) low pressures equal destroyed rims. I haven't had a flat in nearly 3 years because I don't run tires at 22 psi like a fool. Also, tubeless fans your sealant weighs as much as this, perhaps more if you keep adding it. If these hold air and came in schraeder they'd be a perfect product for this guy.

Ask Pinkbike: Handlebar Roll, Which Transition, and Timing With a Stopwatch
@panaphonic...Yes I also have wide shoulders and long arms, was thinking that may have something to do with it. Probably places your weight further back than is optimal I would think?

Ask Pinkbike: Handlebar Roll, Which Transition, and Timing With a Stopwatch
Agree with panaphonic. Having your bars vertical or forward slightly allows greater leverage over the front end and weight on the front tire. But I'm tall so whatever works for your body is the critical part. Judging by what some are saying here, if I have a bike with a 63 degree head angle then the initial rise of my bars would be so far rearward as to be unrideable, zero upsweep or backsweep is less than ideal.

5' 10" is tall? Always forget how small pro cyclists are.

Kirk Pacenti Revolutionizes Short Stems... With a Hammer - Sea Otter 2015
Good point Waki, I always assumed that back and up sweep measurements were taken with the bulged center section perpendicular to the ground. I am speaking from anecdotal experience however, never having undertaken sweep measurements myself. Flat bars are of course a different game as there is not much of a center section to line up vertically to take measurements. But I'm quite tall and don't ride 29ers so flat bars have no appeal for this guy. Just wanted to point out that all this fuss about shorter stem length could be accomplished with greater handlebar sweep while keeping a 50mm stem length that would allow you to keep some weight on the front end for climbing the odd hill.
