    Even without the motor on, there's a whole lot of copper inside your downtube that shouldn't really be there. Put out a signal, detect how it comes back or gets changed. The batteries are also pretty...

    Watching this a few times and reading about it a bit, I think it's just a camera trick. The camera is flattening out what is actually a highly crowned and very steep descent. The bike is just sliding...

    The weird thing about that video isn't the wheel spinning. It's that the bike is spinning as if being moved by the spinning wheel. There shouldn't be enough momentum in the wheel to do that.

    I'm sure you've heard it a million times, but I'm really happy with my Open Pro/Ultegra wheels. I never worry about them at all, they just work. Maybe you've tried them already.

    That's some bad luck (or a really ****ty wheel? Or both?).

    The interest rates these days suck so badly it doesn't even matter. If you get a huge $10k refund, you probably lost out on about $50 in interest. Oh well.

    Don't you have to take them off as soon as you get to a dry section of road though? I think the problem is the big roads get cleared pretty quickly, so you're constantly taking your chains off and...

    My cable is 50 down, 5 up I think. Pretty good for cable. Used to be much slower. I'm surprised your fiber is only 10Mb, is that quoted in MB or something?
