You guys have never hit a pedal in a corner? Admittedly track bikes have higher bottom brackets, but I've hit pedals on every one of my other bikes, even my commuter with 170mm cranks! (And even with...

You only get better at going up hills by going faster up hills. The gear doesn't matter. However, more efficient gears (say spinning instead of mashing) will allow you to go up hills further and more...

Except physics hasn't made it's mark. They still don't have the equations that govern a bicycle's motions. The article says how they've studied it a bunch, but then someone came along and proved all...

Have you hit any mammals lately?

(In reality, I have no idea what the substance is, the tire glue perhaps? An extra from ghostbusters?)

There really is no "getting used to it." Painted lines suck. You have to accept that fact.

If I HAVE to hit one while turning, I switch from "body leaning" to "bike leaning". On the former the...

There have been less accidents/mile for the autonomous mode in the teslas than for humans driving their own car.

Ergo, teslas, when driven by a computer, are safer than humans driving their own...

Pushing the pads back with something plastic is standard practice when changing brake pads. You should not have to crack any bleeder valves. I will often use a tire lever. Make sure you push on the...

Taking apart the nexus IGHs are easy. You basically remove the thing the shifter cable connects to, then there is a lock ring there. Remove that lockring (and the cone nut on that side) and the whole...

Depends, what's the use for this bike? I'd go with the stainless as an all around good cable. The teflon is a pain because you have to scratch it off where the anchor goes to get it not to slip.

LOT of estimates in the above calculations. :) I'd be surprised if I was within 25% of the actual value.

Interesting. Let's assume it's not just at the top speed that this happens. Google says that the top speed of a motogp bike is ~350 kph. Let's assume the valve leakage happens around 320 kph. Let's...

Oh that'd be SUCH a good physics question. How much does the head have to weigh for this to happen at reasonable speeds?

Yeah but most cars are quicker 0-30 than you are. :)

When you're drafting, it's VERY hard to keep up with a car accelerating to 30-35. It's like a sprinter vs. car. The sprinter wins to 20 or 30...

So are you saying that carbon bikes aren't suitable for 6'3" 240 lb guys? I thought carbon was stronger than steel? Then why are steel bikes always suggested for clydes?

What do you mean "misguided?"

Did the chain fall off to the inside, outside? Get stuck between the chainrings? (sprockets up front.)
