    The purpose of the flat section is to help the bead seat initially. It prevent air from flowing under the seat and leaking out. Once the bead is seated tubeless tires will remain on the rim even...

    I can't imagine it would work much better or worse. You're exceeding the maximum tooth allowance for a 105 RD (likely 28T), so I wouldn't expect perfect shifting.

    Pacenti PL23 rims, 36h, tubeless compatible, but not aero at all. The SL23 is better but only 32h.

    The main distinction with a road tubeless rim is the flat section inside to lock the bead in...

    Wireless is very reliable, but its a long way from the 99.9% reliability of mechanic systems. I use a Garmin 510 paired to my phone with HRM and cadence. Periodically, something just doesn't...

    Some manufacturers quote the maximum rated LED lumens, which is different that what the light actually puts out (the $30 1000+ lumen lights are notorious for being over-rated). Anything below 200...

    Gotta say, going up Mt. Diablo was a little scary this weekend. Cars were excessively good about giving 3ft or more. The problem is that everyone still passed in blind corners, and now they're 100%...

    Bummer. I would just replace the link with a quick link or take it back to the shop and have them fix it. Personally, I wouldn't mess with trying to kludge a fix like re-seating a pin. That's just...

    If the RD hanger is straight, you can put the chain into the spokes before the RD. I had a mountain bike with a bad limit that would consistently do that. Think about how the spoke angles work. As...

    1) Mechanical systems.

    2) Sequential shifting (both FD & RD), see the new XTR Di2 reviews. SRAM is working on wireless, but I don't have high hopes, wireless sucks if you want reliability.

    400W is a pretty big number, even for a short duration effort. Jens' target was 370W for the 1hr effort, so that should give you a scale.

    Using the largest cog is the best way to prevent derailuer into spokes damage. By regularly shifting over you can detect improperly set limits before they get way out. Just don't make the first...

    If the tire contributed at all, it would only be a tiny tiny difference. The tire were maybe 5-10 psi high, not enough to matter in any realistic sense. I'm close to the OP's weigh and for a while...

    The key thing with sealant+tubulars is that you wear out tires quickly. If the tire wears out in 6 months, that's really only two doses of sealant, and so there isn't a huge amount of build-up. If...

    Shimano Ultegra 6700 tubeless is good (~$400 @ PBK) or the cheaper RS61, most of the cheaper options are going to be conversions though. Bontrager and Fulcrum/Campy also make quality tubeless...

    More like, "the truck hit him, it was definitely passing too close". Basically, it eliminates the "cyclist swerved" defense.

    What does team Belkin do for saddles? They ride Bianchi frames and the oval carbon rails are pretty standard for any carbon rail.
