    How do you know the rear wheel is the actual distance traveled, isn't that an assumption? I would say the actual distance is the distance the rider travels, which is between the front and rear wheels.

    The rear wheel travels down the center of the path that the frame travels (chain stays are solid) and the rear wheel and the frame travel the same distance. Because the front wheel turns it will always travel a longer path than the rest of the bike. If you look at the tire path of a bike traveling through soft ground you will see that the rear wheel travels down the center of the exact path that the frame traveled down and that the front wheel oscillated back and forth with respect to the rear wheel thereby covering more ground.

    I think you are correct. Does wireless work well with the sensor in the back?

    I have 4 of these on road bikes and 4 on MtB. Never any issues on MTB but on road bikes when I go under major power transmission lines sometimes speed will drop for a few pedal strokes. Mine are all the older model, the newer ones use a better frequency and I am sure have no problems at all. And really, this is not much of a problem to lose 3-4 pedal strokes on a 50 mile ride.

    Dos Niner

    My new to me Dos Niner. Been on a few rides and am really enjoying my first 29er. I recently had my beloved Ibis Mojo with full sram X0 and my Colnago C40 full Campy Record gruppo stolen...a devastated blow. Miss my FS Ibis but this is a pretty nice replacement

    My first 29er!

    I wasn't actually in the market for a 29er. All I have ever owned was 26" and really felt contempt to stick with that same wheel size. That all changed when the LBS let me test ride this SB95...unsupervised and in a near by field! Well, long story short, I'm now the proud owner of said bike...my Christmas gift from my wonderful wife

    I'm still new to a lot of the brands and Component models. All I know is the Shifters, Detailers, and Crank is XT...and WELL WORTH the extra cash!! I took her out on her maiden voyage and she is super smooth and quick!





    I forget the brand but these pedals rock for being flats. Their very thin and grip really well.

    Thanks,

    The LBS had the set in a display case out of the box. So I didn't know if VP was a brand name or model. Anyhow, they looked cool as well as functional and was only $40 if I recall. So I said throw 'em on an lets see what happens. I rode 3.3 miles today and scrapped a couple roots with the pedals and never lost contact. It's still early but so far so good.

    Ya, the cost difference between the US and the UK can really blow at times. Maybe you guys should try and work a deal with some of our members visiting families over seas for the holidays. I have friend who married an English man and they live outside London. Anyhow, they come over every other year to visit and will sometimes bring stuff or take stuff back.

    Just a thought

    Thanks, you got me very interested in the flat VP pedals... So interested that I bought them out right on the eBay. I wanted more pins so I've picked not VP-59 or VP-69, but VP-Vice... Can't wait to get my feet on it, hopefully it's worth it...

    My 2012 Spearfish II. It's been around the forum, but now it's sporting some XT brakes and drivetrain, and also a new gold chain I love this bike so much. Last week I did another 6 hour endurance race on it, and it was magnificent.

    Hey guys, so I've been riding this Zion for about a year now but I know nothing about the company since it seems they went out of production some time ago.
    Anyone know of Zion bikes? I think they were a JensonUSA brand, or something of the sort. Just looking to find out more about my bike!

    Thanks!

    Sweet rides everyone!
