    Had this same approach when I first got RR440's. Tubeless tape will leave a good amount of space. One issue I noted on the RR440 Asymmetric (which I use for my rear wheels) is that the spoke holes...

    No. You used the phrase "could you be more wrong?" That's not acknowledging a different but valid approach. That's calling my approach straight up wrong and while you were at it, you provided no...

    Plain and simple, if you do it correctly, you don't have to work so hard to seat it over. Besides, you don't need to move the 2nd bead any further than the sidewall of the rim - why would that...

    It's cute that you think you're right whereas I have an actual verifiable reason to prove I'm right.

    If you finish opposite the valve, that means your 2nd bead cannot be centered in the rim at the...

    the DT RR440, being a Tubeless Ready rim bed, does in fact create a bit more effort for tire mounting. If anything, your old gumwalls were loose or stretched-loose. I've found that yellow Veloplugs...

    Obvious typo because it makes no sense in any way whatsoever to put the bigger rotor on the rear. 100% absolutely use the bigger rotor on front.

    As for the best heat dissipating rotor, there is...

    I think I'd stick with whatever the OEM style grease is and you'd want to be very careful of what type of degreaser you use since some parts in there may be susceptible to harsher chemicals.

    Might make it tough to open the brake caliper enough for removing the wheel - depends how slack you like your brakes. Either way though, your calipers already have a super easy adjustment nut on...

    Definitely not. Many are very close but the best thing you could do to make this feasible is get wheels with the same hubs.

    not much you can do here - you just have to accept it.

    Yep, I had my Garmin's elevation basically lock up once on a very hilly ride once when it was pouring rain. That's when I turn on the correction feature in Connect/Strava.

    This right here.

    The primary source of error for these is not having an accurate starting point. Then, the altimeter doesn't know if the change in air pressure is due to climbing or due to...

    I'm not positive but that might actually be the case here in USA as well, since blinking red lights are technically for emergency response vehicles, but it doesn't seem to be an issue for most of us.

    covers are a pain, but the fit on winter shoes can be so sloppy. I strongly prefer the on-bike experience of covers while the convenience of winter shoes is better.
