    Yeah, he does have that track build to him.

    I stand corrected. Good to know!

    I'd probably be a little pissed if I bought a $700 (or whatever) trainer, was good at it, and someone said "Oh if you want to race meaningfully then you need another $300 on a separate power meter"

    My Canyon Inflite AL SLX 6.0 for New Bike Day:

    Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.-img_9146-jpg

    Pretty good so far. It's my first SRAM bike, and I kinda like the way the shifters work. But the brakes are trash compared to the Shimano 105 on my other Canyon...

    Interesting. I have little to compare my Rival disk brakes against. The MC piston tends to stick and requires a regrease and you really have to search to find the procedure for it. Pain in the butt, but I am otherwise satisfied with them.

    Niiiiceeee! 35's are a great compromise, as you get comfort without much loss due to rolling resistance.

    That's what I was aiming for. I spend a lot of time on my full sus bike but wanted something not so razor thin road to expand my pedaling opportunities.

    I plan on piling on the miles but once the tires wear out I'll probably look for something more road focused and tubeless ready. Any suggestions?

    I also read about a funky rear hub system Specialized was using, but I can't find any reference to it in relation to the 2021 bikes. Not an issue right now, but I'm an I9 snob and would love to have a set of those on the axles.

    Are those wheels tubeless ready? Tubeless is definitely the way to go. No flats and the ability to run lower pressures is awesome!

    They don't advertise as TLR but people have taped them up and they worked fine with TLR tires. Tubeless is on my list when I wear out the OEM tires. The OEM tires are right around 1750g which doesn't seem too heavy, but my only recent experience is in mtbk mode.

    I must be doing something wrong, or just have shit luck. This year I had 2 unrepairable punctures/flats on my cross bike (ironically both on the ROAD) and my rear mtb tire will no longer hold air after its 3rd plug this season.

    Infact, the only bike i DIDN'T get a flat on this year was my road bike which is the only regularly ridden bike i'm still running tubes in.
