    @dkel, that build is really sweet. I am jealous of all that orange. The silver and black components look great. Attention to detail top-notch. Impressive!

    Yeah, road and trail are quite different. 50 on those trails (relatively easy, super fun) is probably closer to 100+ mile road ride esp for less experienced on the road. OTOH, just plan to be out all...

    The 520 is out (or imminent) too. I really like the 510; I would get it in a heartbeat over the 500 because I love not having to plug in the device to have it upload my ride. (Of course, I do have to...

    Yeah, good choice! Congrats on the new bike! I keep thinking about an X-Caliber frame to build into a HT.

    Yeah, there's a sweet spot there before things start to squirm on the corners, I agree. I don't like things getting squirmy either.

    Yeah, definitely only use RT tires for RT! All the articles/howto guides/forum posts that I have seen are good about making that explicit. I am glad you didn't have any catastrophic failures.

    Yeah, it is rough. I look at the name; if I don't recognize it, I assume it needs to be flagged. Of course, if it is Tim or Jason or any number of others, I know it is just over. Le sigh.

    I have never had any problem seating tubeless(-ready) tires with a floor pump, on Stans or UST Mavic rims (or one Kinlin rim I converted). Definitely if you're using non-purpose-built equipment it...

    Most rims can be converted to tubeless, but I find it makes life better to get purpose-built products for things like that (easier to seat tires, less risk of burping, etc.). Same goes for tires: you...

    It honestly doesn't matter. I started with 26" hardtail (XL frame), later got a 26" full suspension, then got rid of it all and am left with a 29" rigid SS. I like 29" tires, but they can be more...

    Yes, the button is on front light unit and is very large and tactile; turning it off is just a ~2-second press.

    Google for Danny MacAskill; his videos are amazing. Yeah, it takes many times for them to land those tricks correctly. MacAskill often has blooper clips at the end of his videos.
