What does the tent look like when it's all packed up? Is it basically just a flattish box that you open up like a pop-up camper?

added a review of Trywin D1
 

Small and lightweight. Inexpensive. Helpful for seeing ride stats at a glance during the ride. Waterproof.

Basic GPS unit for cycling.
Aren't we all self-flagellating luddites? Hey mountain bikers, there's this thing called a dirt bike and you don't even have to pedal it. :)

Great tip. I definitely cringe a little when pumping up beyond 40psi--you never know when you're going to get a loud pop! How are your buddy's tires leaking? Where is the air coming from? Some tires, especially ones that aren't officially tubeless-ready, have porous rubber that tends to leak air, mostly through the sidewalls. It's also possible he's…
I really wish IMBA would just take a "no comment" approach here. Seriously, this doesn't jibe with their previous statement about co-existing with the STC and presenting a united front. If Senators were lining up people who are opposed to the bill vs. those who support it, this makes it sound like IMBA would choose…

Thanks Paul. I didn't go into the full details of our test but it sounds like we used a similar method to your study for the surface and obstacle tests. Speed was held constant over multiple trials (to get an average) and we measured work and forces using a power meter.

Hang reservoir upside down for storage
We've heard that from others too. As far as we can tell, it's an issue with the podcast app: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7239140?tstart=0 I've personally been able to press the "Retry" button when a download fails and eventually it works. We'll keep searching for a solution on our end, let us know if you find anything on your…

Yeah, the market is constantly changing! Not only that, just looking at what's being offered doesn't tell us what's actually being purchased. Now if we could just convince every company to share their sales #s.... :)
 
No.
 
Yes. This is essentially what I was getting at when I said, The only time the oval ring felt odd after my initial ride was when starting from a stop or starting to pedal after coasting a bit. Depending on the orientation of the ring when I started pedaling, it either felt harder or easier…
