    Paul,

    We use a 6904 Wheels Manufacturing drift. You can purchase them individually from their web site for around five bucks.

    Brian, RipNshread,

    Sounds like both of you are saying similar things. We have the opportunity to sell both rims and recommend the KinLin rims to our customers for a reason. I’ve been living in the rainy NW via Portland Or for over a year now and am happy with overall breaking performance and longevity of the Kinlin. My girlfriend and I both use them on training wheels.

    @Brian,

    Any word on when the additional drillings will be available?

    I can’t promise what will show up but we have rims arriving tomorrow or Mon and there should be a few new drillings. Look for the web site to be updated next week. If you can’t wait give us a call Monday or Tuesday and we’ll be happy to hand pick them 520 623 3761.

    Do you still plan on testing the ZG Gravitas and if so do you have an idea of when that will be?

    We’re looking at some other projects before another brake review, so no time estimates yet.

    @Cory, :)

    @Taylor, the project was never really about weight. But it’s sort of a moot point anyway with the goings on at Titus.

    The changes to the Tune hubs are a running change and are not done as a model year change. When Tune runs out of existing hubs they’ll begin to switch to new hubs. Externally you won’t really be able to tell the difference. The only thing I can suggest is to buy it from a dealer you trust and rely on them to give you the correct information as to what’s inside the hub. Though the only way the dealer will know is if they take the time to open it up and look as Tune is not marking the hubs any differently.

    The chain wasn’t ours so we don’t know what they used. Shifting quality will be normal given chain stretch.

    @Sean,

    Glad you like it… Yes, manual overrides or a “kill switch” will be needed.

    The kit is more than likely never going to happen. There’s some lawyer issues that are better left to lawyers. There is the immeasurable costs from Jeff… Small to tiny market etc. We will make sure to ride this one though! :)

    @Trevor,

    I’m sure you could contact SA directly. Or have your IBS do it for you. Send us pics if you get a similar one up and running!

    in reply to: Look and Polar do Pedal Based Power Meters #93029
    Keymaster

    Ian,

    There are two situations here. One, is that the rider is not pedaling and just dropping of the curb or bunny hopping. In this case there is no, or very little, movement in the pedals so although there’s pressure on the axle there is no work being done. This is why the cadence sensor in each pedal is needed. The second case is that you pedal off the curb (not really applicable to bunny hopping). Here the pedaling action is more removed from the action of dropping of the curb. Power will be calculated normally and the drop will be considered a “vibration.”

    The unit needs to filter out vibrations if it’s going to measure the specific type of work and power we’ve come to expect our power meters to measure. That is to say to measure the work and power done to move the bike forward not to balance or absorb shock and vibration. To answer your question, data will be “cleaned” and unnaturally high spikes are calculated out, smoothed or disregarded.

    This all touches on the reasons we really need to wait and see some third party real world testing and data before we draw any conclusions on overall accuracy.

    @Brian,

    It all sounds really fun. We can’t wait to see where this goes. I think it will have it’s place but obviously will not be for everyone or every situation. Who knows what the UCI will think of it. Maybe they’ll let someone win a world championship on it then outlaw it on the eve of a semi-important race after teams spent all winter developing and testing on it. :)
