    My gosh I didn't even remember that there's so much hassle going on with tubes... not having really used any for years does that to you I guess. I haven't had a flat for five years now because of...

    I had actually pretty bad anterior pelvic tilt, bad enough to cause quite a bit of lower back pain and hinder my mobility overall.

    I've done a lot of things to now almost completely fix this issue...

    Well, to be clear, you don't actually have any info on the tubeless subject either so we're pretty even here.

    A road tubeless tire doesn't require a bead hook. I'll bet at some point someone will be brave enough to bring out a road tubeless wheel without any hooks. It's just the scaredy cats who aren't...

    Shoddy? Ghetto tubeless is a brilliant system when done right! There is absolutely nothing shoddy about it.
    I mean it would be shoddy if you used electric tape and liquid latex but the system quite...

    Weird, since tubeless tires also exert more force on the rim pushing inwards. Fancy that it manages to do both... Might be a solution to the conservation of energy problem right here. No but...

    You're comfotable using pressurized tires (tubed clinchers) on a chinese rim but not comfortable using pressurized tires (tubeless clincher) on one. I don't get it

    Then again, the discs they are putting on these low end bikes really aren't worth the effort. Useable hydraulic starts at shimano deore at $100 a pair. Useable mechanic starts at avid BB7's which are...

    If you do get the rim brake model, for the love of everything that is holy, get some better pads for it! The stock pads are a joke. Kool Stop or swisstop should work nicely

    They feel much better. Period.
    Especially for a normal sized human (6'5") they are a much better option than a foam padded seat as they mold to your rear side.

    I would go through so many rims with pads like that. I NEED Kool Stop just so I can use my rims for multiple seasons.

    Downgrading

    So how many of you get something fancy but then decide to downgrade for whatever reason?

    From the beginning my cx/road bike has been in a spiral of downgrading of parts. First I changed the 20/24...

    Send it back as in a defective piece. Some variation is to be expected but this is slightly distressing as in how much softer the one side is.
  19. Brooks B17, noticeably softer leather on one side.

    So I just got my B17 and I love it from the get go. Most comfortable saddle I've ever had.

    But there seems to be a problem with it. I noticed from the beginning that the leather on the right side...

    getting a tubeless tire on a rim is actually easier for me since there is no tube getting in the way of things. Usually a tube complicates things a lot.
