No. Alamo has assigned seating and I pre-book all my films so I get to sit where I want. You can't do that with MoviePass.



I don't. But he asked which ones I recommend, and I really like...

Still off topic:

Last week I went to four movies. "Thor: Ragnarok", "Blade of the Immortal", "Horror Express" and "This is Spinal Tap". My theater (Alamo Drafthouse) has good beer and food, so I...

Looks like you're in a garage. If you have exposed rafters, tie some loops of rope around them. You can hang the bike by the seat and handlebars to work on it.

But a real bike stand is better...

I use the same bottles for Gatorade and plain water. Just be sure to wash them out before the Gatorade taste sinks in.

I buy the 4000 S IIs for $35 online. I look for sales and buy them before I need them.

But even if they were $50 more per pair, so what? I spend more than that going to the movies each week. ...

If the industry drops this tech, will my coffee cup become ex-pre-unsprung weight?

You were talking about some time before the invention of the spring. Nothing was sprung or unsprung then because you need a spring to be sprung or unsprung. Everything was presprung. Also...

Only one safe way to find out. Buy one, run it until it dies, then buy an identical one and run it just a little less.

Sure, there are non-independent suspension systems, but no one talks about their unsprung weight. The reason unsprung weight is important is because it's on an independent suspension. The...

Sprung/unsprung weight is used for independent suspensions. Once you bolt the wheels directly to a frame no one uses that distinction. Again, because there is no spring.

You lost me. You're moving the chassis, engine, etc. to the wheel side of the springs? What's on the other side of the springs? If it's "nothing", then the wheels aren't connected to each other...

No, that was sprung weight (held up by the springs in the suspension), it just oscillated in a way that counteracted oscillation of the unsprung components. Kind of like a noise cancelling headphone.

Unless there's no spring, in which case nothing is sprung and nothing is unsprung.



Huh? If there's nothing but wheels on the suspension then the body won't move with the wheels.

Dogs don't work that way. Dogs can't even keep up with a good jogger, much less a cyclist. Humans are optimized for long distance travel. Dogs are not. They will do their best to keep up with...

Dude. I've looked it up. I've raced cars. Also go karts. The oscillation that unsprung weight contributes to is the oscillation of the suspension system between the spring and the road. Race...

Yup. Go kart wheels are fixed to the chassis. They don't bounce up and down on springs.

But the oscillation is why unsprung weight matters. Here's a quote from a Wikipedia article on automobile handling:



That "resonant motion" is also known as "oscillation".

And yes, surface...

How is that possible? Are you saying a go kart, with fixed axles and no suspension, is 100% unsprung? And therefore the entire system oscillates?? I don't believe that. None of it oscillates. ...

I'm familiar with the term from auto racing. My observations are serious. You can't have unsprung weight without springs. We minimize unsprung weight because it makes oscillations that are harder...

I see where you're going, but if we use that perspective, wouldn't that mean a car seat with springs in it would make the entire car unsprung weight?
