First Look: DT Swiss' New 1501 & 1700 Spline Wheelsets
@drpheta: interesting, how would you compare them to DT Swiss XM rims? I'm a lighter rider and have never had an issue with XM's, this is my first M rim

@rickybobby18: so perfectly put. I worked extremely hard to get where I am. But I've also had some luck and a lot of privilege. No amount of hard work alone would have put me in the same place.

@4thflowkage: "But, big companies jumping on board means there is money behind it, which means the mainstream is accepting it." exactly. doesn't mean i trust these companies any more. but i can be happy corps are doing this as a pretty big sign of societal change. it's fantastic.

@drpheta: these people know what they're doing. they pretend that they think "black lives matter" means "only black lives matter", when of course it means "black lives matter, too" it's a disingenuous attempt to change the subject. those people don't argue in good faith.

Ridden & Rated: 12 of the Best 2020 Flat Pedals
yeah, i like my vaults overall, but i swear one of the pedals starts clicking everything 3 months or so and needs a bushing replacement. just replacing the bearing doesn't eliminate the noise. I'll give the loctite a try next time. I'm assuming you mean 641, not 691, though. I can't find a 691 and 641 is used by a bunch of bike manufacturers to prevent pressfit bottom brackets from creaking. I've found 641 definitely does that, but it also make the BB really, really hard to remove

Video: Can Luca Shaw Learn the Dark Arts of Wheel Building on Zoom?
@privateer-wheels: i probably couldn't build ANY wheel brand as well as the ones i typically build, since i build 2 a year, but i only build up DT swiss rims on DT swiss hubs and spokes. maybe that consistency is what makes it so easy to build a good wheel. in that case, that's what i would recommend other amateurs like me do. what nuances are you referring to? all my wheels are still going strong, i check the tensions now and then and nothing has drastically changed, indicating a very stable build. only downside is the time they take to build up
