    Heh, Sean put me up to it. I think it may still stand? But I hope someone raises the bar (inevitably someone will) so I have to work to get it back!

    Yeah, it looks like it can fit 45mm tires. I like the di2 wiring option with internal shifter routing, the disc brakes (of course), the ebb for single speed option, the tapered headtube for fork...

    As Jabberwocky mentioned, the disc is the brake that provides more stopping power. BUT the other significant reason people put the disc up front is because the only reason they are doing the "mullet...

    Do you have issues with the pump falling over on account of top-mounted gauge? Given my experience with the Topeak constantly falling over, I would choose the Air Tower 1 model that Phatboing...

    I like Lezyne pumps a lot -- with the thread-on valves (the other valves are junk IMO). I own two; a standard high-pressure road one and the "dirt drive" pump that puts out a lot of volume but only...

    This is true.

    Yeah, I can't bring myself to wear white shoes, because I assume they'll just get dirty. Of course, I have no problem wearing hi-viz yellow/green boots in the winter! :)

    It just seems odd that I can buy a carbon bike frame for less than the price of a Weehoo. (Not to mention aluminum.) It's got one wheel and a single-speed drivetrain. I'm not arguing that the...
