      I'm a designer, so I sometimes print things out to see how they look, if they're legible, etc. at various sizes. How it'll look on a pen or whatever. I've had this printer for 10 years now (HP...

      I told them I was fine with generic for $60 all-in, but they chose HP. I'm sure it'll last a bit longer, but nowhere near 11-12x longer.



      They're around. Lynskey is a good example. They...

      Yep, wide is good up to a point. If you get too wide, then you start to float too much and lose traction in a lot of situations. I ran 29x2.6s on one of my bikes for a while, and they had this...

      Aside from being short and needing a tiny bike, I can't think of a reason to not get a 29er. The geometry has been pretty dialed for about a decade now, and the type of bike and frame design seems...

      Yeah, almost 400 watts for an hour would be pretty impressive. I'm not saying that you can't do that... but you can't do that. :P

      Ha. That's crazy. I was listening to a CyclingTips podcast (I think it was them) about e-doping in Zwift and how it's a potential issue when people virtually race (pros included). All you have to...

      Looks good. I think these are going to age a lot better than the Hyundai twin.

      The only thing I can think of when I see wheels like that is that they're going to look like hell when/if they get...

      My Top Fuel is down while I decide what to do when it comes to bearings and pivots (why do all of my Treks creak?), so I put the 110mm SID on the formerly rigid, formerly drop bar Lynskey that I've...

      I don't think so. My UST Crossmax carbons aren't solid, which is a bummer. They even shipped with leaky tape. The wheels in general are nice I guess (probably not worth the money, even at like 50%...

      Ouch. Stan's doesn't use bead humps, right? Don't they just have wider "ledges" for the bead to live on, allowing it to move more before burping? I haven't owned a Stan's rim in a while, but I...

      I remember reading a few articles about the pressure, sidewall tension, and width relationship, but I don't think I've read how that interacts with the bead. And yep, BFA over here, so take this as...

      This might be a dumb question, but how much different is bead/sidewall pressure in a road vs. mtb tire? Doesn't a larger tire with lower pressure have similar stresses as a narrower tire at higher...

      Road tubeless is a different standard and doesn't seem as well received, for whatever reason. The beads and rim bead humps are less substantial and apparently manufacturers can't agree on compatible...

      When I replaced the lower control arms on my old G35, I went with Beck/Arnley. They weren't as nicely finished as OEM (which doesn't really matter), but they were 50% of the cost and seemed fine for...

      Poll: Road tubeless - do you use it?

      Just curious. By road tubeless, I mean road-specific wheels and tires. They're different and apparently not as well-received/designed as MTB tubeless.

      I used to be a little into automotive photography (and photography in general), but I've sort of lost interest over the past several years. It's somehow lost the fun. Here's some old, old stuff:

      Heh, thanks. I did, and like everything I make with/for my son, it lasted about a day... so no chance to improve the design. Other recent stuff:

      The rear motor also helps with regen, which is nice. I've never driven a 2wd hybrid Toyota for comparison, but ours will recharge pretty quickly while coasting. The rear motor also can't be used...

      In our previous-gen, the rear motor by itself has 67hp. I can't find the torque output. I have no idea how this is split/throttled/used with the rest of it. Combined, it has 194hp ad 204 ft-lbs. ...

      Is there any Infiniti that isn't/wasn't Nissan+ or even just a total badge job? Both of mine have been a handful of badges away from an Australian Nissan, and I like it that way. ROW, but still. ...
