this is the thread for when you are too stoked on MTBs and want to put a damper on things.
IDK, given how purist and resistant to anything slightly different the road-bike contingent is, I'd show up and rock that as an F-you to everyone else...
Eh, why not? The Industry has been pushing bigger wheels on us for over a decade. I said for years that the time will come where some dumb ass in "TI" will say "Hey! I have a brilliant idea! It worked on mountain bikes, let's fuck up the road industry too!". Unfortunately, this is how The Industry™ comes up with a stupid idea, but refers to it as "ingenuity" or "engineering"...
UCI still requires road bikes to have matching wheel diameters. that rule was only changed for MTB.
I'm saying that 900c wheels will be next cause they roll over Pennsylvania potholes better!
That's why I hate road racing. I understand why they have minimum weights, so stuff doesn't too stupid unsafe, but the other rules they have are just dumb.
That's why you hate it?
although TBF I can see how service support cars laden with wheels in 4 different rim diameters, 4 axle standards, with 2 disc size and rim brake options and elderly mechanics flapping about trying to navigate a laptop to google the right one for the frame any time a rider punctures could be more entertaining than what actualy plays out on the road on most of the stages.
cmon yeti, I know the e-finity link bike is hiding somewhere
Zipp 3-0 Moto appears to be rebadged pre-existing rim...
Good catch! I KNEW I had seen that rim profile before!!
Mello Bouwmeester – Engineer
That name can’t be real.
Naw, that looks symmetrical.
If only there was another place to secure a water bottle...
But you've got to do something to make it proprietary rather than use the standard that's been out for decades.
I'm getting my order in NAO for one of these:
for when I see the first dobber climbing with that belt on.
hours n hours of fun right there!
 actually fuck it...
these will be better
For the "tactical" wannabes, everything has to be military style.
Do the deeper reaches of MTBR still have threads on what is the best handgun to carry while doing XC rides?
Never mind, I don't want to know.
Ah, yes, I totally hate having more options on the market for how to cary water.
I mean, I'm not gonna buy that thing, and making it look all "tactical" is dumb, but let's not get mad at having more options for stuff. Obama's not going to take your normal bottle away.
That's what he said about my doctor
That’s the joke.gif
That was an Obama gonna take your guns joke if I ever saw one
You monkeys and your money to afford bottles, guns, doctors.
Just bring me out back if i break a leg.
Found the fanny pack wearer...
This is probably from someone here when considering the name of the channel?
Tactical camo paint and all the luxury you can wish. Soon to be copied by Surly or Salsa
Needs moar velcro/molle patches.
yes! I knew it was an australian rim, but my google skillz failed me. good job finding it.
found a few reviews: https://bikerumor.com/2015/05/26/lo...r-tammar-4-8-carbon-fiber-wide-enduro-wheels/
To be fair, I didn’t find it, someone on mtbr did, and the profile seems slightly different, more angled on the inside on one, but that may just be the angle of the camera.
fuck off mercedes jesus h
Absolutely. They're so much more comfortable than a backpack.
i'd like to have heard more about the shuttle rig they used.
rebadged Nissan pickup spinning tires on all gravel corners
would have been cooler with a Razor drifting all the corners.
(maybe... I didn't watch the video, so I don't know for sure)
Why not just ski lift?
doesn't fuck up the environment as much
also ski lifts cant do sweet burnouts
it was the e-bike banditos
Whatever it was.. We know we can rely on you to moan about it bro.
