    Yes. Actually, with maximum front braking, the rear brake is worse than useless--you will lock it up and fishtail. I had a rider swerve into my path on a steep downhill, and I hit both brakes hard....

    Strava says 3.8 miles and 1040 feet. 3.8 miles at 9% is 1800 feet.

    It still looks like a very hard climb, with lots of 9-10% sections.

    I really like my FSA Omega bars. They are cheap to try. Note that they are 1cm narrower at the hoods -- a 42cm is 41 at the hoods.

    The reach to the hoods is definitely shorter. I had a 90 stem,...

    Is your tire any easier to mount with no rim tape...

    Is your tire any easier to mount with no rim tape installed? That's the ultimate "thin tape". It's probably still a tight fit.

    My Kinlin XR-300 wheels came with this thin reinforced tape, in a...

    What's the question here?

    Try lifting the front wheel off the ground and spin it. Watch the rim near the brake pads. Is it the rim or the tire that has the bump?

    I carry this Mini Morph pump. I like the small size and the hose, which allows the base of the pump to be on the ground.

    But it takes forever to get up to even 80-90 psi. I think I roughly...

    Riders can get a fairly accurate calorie count if they have power meters. (calories burned are related to power meter watts.)

    My guess is that it's the edge of a carbon sheet, and not a problem. If the bars are built up from layers of carbon sheets (is that how they are made?), there has to be an edge somewhere.
