    It's really hard to notice until you take your chain off. I used to have that same bike, and thought the suspension worked really well. Then I snapped a chain and did a rough descent chainless. ...

    On pretty much every full suspension bike, the chainstay length gets longer as the suspension compresses. The chain interferes with that lengthening; tension on the "top" part of the chain will...

    Seems like the trickiest issue is that gearboxes don't like to shift under load, but all of the ebike motors I've tried continue to output power for a little bit even after you stop pedaling. So,...

    I think most of the common high end rear hubs are in the 250 - 320g range. I think Chris Kings are the heaviest of the common hubs at around 320g. The new lighter Onyx's are still around 415 grams.

    I've tried them a bit. The instant engagement is legit. They're kind of ridiculously heavy - ~180 grams heavier than a DT 240, which is a shitload for unsprung mass.
