    SRAM Rival GXP crankset + power meter

    I replaced this on my commuter to diagnose a clunking sound/feeling, only to discover it was a loose BB cup. But I decided I don't need a power meter on my commuter :-)

    Well used (some scratches)....

    I'd propose that it's the tread pattern & rubber compound more than tubeless, but tubeless does yield a more supple tire. But the G-One are great tires. There is a pretty big difference between...

    I agree; I don't think 28s would be faster on this, even on the relatively smooth crushed stone sections south of Rileys Lock (which is as far as I've been). I generally have come around to accept...

    How "stretched" is the chain? If it's 0.75 or more, I wouldn't change it; the damage is done. (It's true that I don't think it makes economic sense to change chains at all, but will concede that you...

    Wow, had no idea that existed. Yeah, I've got Hope Pro 2 Evo (40t) hubs, so I assume those are the version I would need! -- that's a nice option to be able to keep using my 29" wheels, then, until...

    Beautiful bike. This must be a dumb question, but what's that protruding round nub mid-way up the seat post?

    Are you able to clear 3.0" rear tires there -- is that a yoke chain stay or tubes? ...

    Sure, I agree that breathing exhaust isn't great. Can we ban people smoking on the trails too? That's gross. I could see someone counter-argue that the advantage of a louder motor is that you'll...

    That seems consistent with the point others have made that e-bikes are legal on Arlington MUPs. I guess in VA [for us] that leaves the W&OD, which isn't Arlington jurisdiction? I'm not sure how...

    I think distinguishing between good motors and bad motors is far more tenuous than motor and no motor when it comes to what should be allowed on the trail. I don't see any practical difference...

    No, it is pretty hard to spin out the rear tire on a MTB (on anything but the loosest surfaces) using just leg-power to drive the rear wheel. It would be awkward to put out that kind of power if you...
