Leaving out ~4,000 gun deaths sure makes 5577 seem a lot less than 9500. Plus, your figure on deaths due to medical errors is about double the actual figure: https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/are-medical-errors-really-the-third-most-common-cause-of-death-in-the-u-s-2019-edition/ ... more »

I believe he is referring to seat/post combos, rather than frames with integrated posts. Pretty much all combo seats have the same angle. He says you should find the angle you like and get a combo seat with that angle, which isn't possible. Manufacturing ... more »

Pivotal is absolutely not heavy, the difference in weight is tiny. If your seat keeps getting loose, you're doing it wrong. That shouldn't happen. Tripod posts have a useless change in thickness near the top, which is prone to breaking (Seriously, I've ... more »

When I was in like 5th grade a kid got stabbed in the leg with his bars at the trails. Bar ends save lives.

Does Laird still force customers to use the idiotic plate stay bridges? I've been thinking of getting a custom eventually and I won't even consider Laird until you can request tube bridges or wishbones.

Added reply in a thread How to lace tree straight pull hubs 4/26/2019 2:30 PM

You won't have to touch that wheel for years. My Tree hubs are on Birdcages, which are quite a bit weaker than Ribcages, and they've been completely solid. Straight pull is legit.

The Roloway has significantly bigger bearings, an updated driver, and an improved manufacturing process. Very similar though.

Dark mode only saves power on OLED screens, and even then dark mode barely has an impact. Most dark modes aren't true black, so you're not taking full advantage of it. And then if it was true black, you'll run into smearing when scrolling. But dark mode ... more »

I don't really think it was about the name being inappropriate, I mean, it was BMX in the 90s. I think it was more about brand image. G-Sport's products have always been some of the best, and G-Spot seems like an immature name that doesn't really fit ... more »

He's right, G-Sport was originally called G-Spot. CBA to find anything about it right now, but the R was definitely added in after the fact.

Edit: Ok, let's try this again. I originally quoted the wrong post but whatever. Socket Drive does not wobble. The interface requires the sprocket to be pressed on to the seat. If your's wobbles, it was manufactured incorrectly. So many companies had ... more »

This. You have a HUGE amount of completely unnecessary heat, when you could have just used a thicker tube.

BMX definitely got me more interested in both engineering and manufacturing. Then I went to college for engineering and learned I only really cared about it in the context of BMX. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ But it's definitely an interest that will carry through the ... more »

I love the Tao style front end. Chainstay plates are still useless tho. Thicker tubing is the solution.

Added reply in a thread G Sport Roloway Cassette 4/1/2019 8:57 AM

Honestly, I think BMX will die off completely before that happens. BMX has become incredibly stubborn and resistant to change. We couldn't even adapt Socket Drive, an interface that was hands down superior to previous solutions in just about every way. ... more »

Yep, it's not like anyone has ever said "I can tell my hub is not concentric, I wish it were machined better." But for me, it makes me think that all aspects of the manufacturing process were properly considered. I think we've kind of plateaued for the ... more »

This has much bigger bearings (17x35x8 compared to 17x30x7 or 20x32x7), an improved manufacturing process (Like the Roloway front hub) that ensures perfect concentricity, and from the outside it looks like it might have a beefier, or at least updated, ... more »
