Video: How Long Should a Wheel Last? | Pinkbike Weekly Show Ep. 15
@IntoTheEverflow: not all rims start out perfectly planar, so they might need slightly uneven tension to run straight. Additionally, the stiffness and circularity at the joint is never the same as the rest, so if you want the wheel to be really round, tension will be uneven. Much more noticeable, once you bend a rim sideways ( taco) tension has to beade very uneven to straighten it, leaving spokes on one side noticeably tighter than the other. Next time you land sideways on the side with no support from loose spokes it all goes bad. That's why when you bend a rim, it's better to not straighten the wheel, but just re-tension evenly, giving more even strength and less spoke fatigue ( loose spokes bend a little all the time and work harden until the break)

Rachel Pageau is OnlyFans' Latest Sponsored Mountain Biker
@mi-bike: correct, but you are being willfully misleading by not pointing out a simple spelling mistake in a way that is understandable, and making it look like you don't get the joke. It looks pedantic and obfuscating at the same time. By the way, I generally enjoy your comments.

Social Round Up: Snow Bike World Championships 2024
@HenkkaK: Did I get this right? You're advising that we do like the UCI, i.e. not take mountain biking seriously Ok. Buddy. Absolutely valid take. Wrong audience By the way, UCI is a greedy bunch. They can suck on a bag of dicks. I'm riding more than ever, don't take it as seriously as in the past and enjoy it more. The UCI still treats MTB like the red-headed step child.

Review: 7mesh's Cache Anorak & Grit Pants
@MillerReid: could be wrong, but I think that Nokia, Motorola as well as Ericsson all produced phones in Europe. Funny how quickly the world changes.

Review: 7mesh's Cache Anorak & Grit Pants
@Chondog94: I'm no expert but I think all you really need is straight stitch and zigzag. Lots of machines from the fourties to the seventies have that and are sturdy enough to stitch denim and sailcloth without a walking foot. Usually around 100 bucks on marketplace. Some go for more, often the seller will tell you the name of the mechanic that looked after it.

KMC Announces Their First Cassette
@tacklingdummy: not on my radar either. Always a special occasion chatting with another radar owner operator, what kind of radar do you have? Since acquiring a radar, I can't say I've looked into changing the gears on it, but I sure take cleaning dishes more seriously than ever before.

First Look: Hope Releases DH Version of PRO 5 Hub
@vinay: also, I don't think smooth application of high torque is the issue with ratchet failure, unlike broken axles, where constantly bending them under torque leads to fatigue cracks. Ratchets have trouble with extremely sudden load, when only the first of the supposedly synchronized pawls engag├ęs.( In that moment, it prys the axle and ring sideways.It's not like lubricants are always distributed in the exact same way, it's en environnement conducive to making waves that can affect pawls or grease.
