Rémy Métailler Denied US Entry, Won't Be At Rampage
Bruh.... stop embarrassing yourself. This immigration rule has been around for a lottttt longer than Trump. P-1 Visa is what he should have asked for.

Lopes Punching Kabush After the Race? Here’s What That’s All About
Whatever. Occasionally shit goes down, someone gets punched, and everyone moves on. Doesn't sound like anyone is nursing a huge grudge, so be it.

SRAM Code RSC Brakes - Review
@siderealwall2: This is some grade-A cherry picking here. The standard boiling points are MINIMUMS. Most good fluids exceed them by a great deal. Torque RT 700 has a dry boiling point of 360C, which is quite a bit higher than Shimano. And hygroscopic is a good thing. If your seals fail and you get water in the line, you still get consistent performance. With mineral oil, you get pockets of water that flash to steam. Terrible idea.

12-Speed XTR, Devinci’s Return to DH, and a Santa Cruz eMTB? - Rumors from Eurobike 2017
@PinkyScar: Not sure if serious.. but both the single piece and pinned ones are made on automated lines.

12-Speed XTR, Devinci’s Return to DH, and a Santa Cruz eMTB? - Rumors from Eurobike 2017
@Axxe: You 're drunk on the shimano fanboy vodka. For a given application, a single piece part will be lighter, because you don't have to add in the connecting hardware. The only nonsense is in thinking that adding more mass magically makes it lighter. And wow, to account for different loads and wear rates... you can make the profile of that cog and it's support different from the other ones! Amazing! As for the mass market... well, SRAM does currently spec more than half of the OEM builds with drivetrains, so I'd call that pretty well adopted. Maybe the idea is not as half-baked as you would assume.

12-Speed XTR, Devinci’s Return to DH, and a Santa Cruz eMTB? - Rumors from Eurobike 2017
@Axxe: Bad engineering? Not a chance. Single piece parts are always lighter and stronger than multi piece parts for a given application. They may be more expensive at this moment due to increase machining costs, but given the rate labor is rising, that may not be true for long. Plus they wear slower, and wear your hub slower than multi piece parts. Over a few years, cost wise you come out at least even, with better performance.

Manuel Fumic's Cannondale Scalpel Si - Cairns XC World Champs 2017
@jcav5: It's not that the UCI limited tire width, it's that they did so in a completely arbitrary fashion. 33mm was chosen as the maximum width for all CX tires because... the UCI felt like it. There is no science, engineering rational, or math behind that number. There is no consideration given for rider size or the course. 33 mm wide tires are not even a particularly convenient width for rim and frame designers. The only equality is that everyone equally hates the rule. What it ends up doing is severely penalizing taller and heavier riders who have to run higher pressures and loose traction compared to their smaller counterparts, and is a complete pain in the ass for companies who have to build frames, rims, and tires for all sizes of customers, but still have to get their designs certified by the UCI to one single arbitrary size that does not change based on the rider.

12-Speed XTR, Devinci’s Return to DH, and a Santa Cruz eMTB? - Rumors from Eurobike 2017
@Axxe: How? Lets start with the cons: -Requires X-dome cassettes -Requires a new driver if you have a standard one. Annnnddd that's it. Pros: -Much bigger cog bearing area, so less wear over time, especially in muddy conditions -Puts less axial load on bearings, so they last longer -Lighter -Gives much more room for further drive train expansion -Can go to smaller cogs (10T, 9T)
