    Subaru-Trek team mechanics Matt Opperman and Andrew Shepard add a little chunk of high-density foam to the underside of the cage for better chain security

    Is the foam to keep the chain from bouncing around less ?

    I think it helps to keep the chain from coming off on rough sections, so yes. They showed me that trick at Bonelli and I added it to my Epic as well.

    Bike weight for female racers is something discussed often in our house. Could be that she makes up time riding big wheels. They can be faster.

    In a interview on cycling dirt I think it was, she said her bike is sub 18 pounds. So, who really knows.

    She rides a 29er because thats what subaru riders are paid to ride. And she has already won on it. So, whats your point again ?

    From what I've seen, an equivalent 29er vs 26er is only about 1.5 lbs heavier, unless it has a Lefty, then about 1/2 lb heavier.

    Yeah. Someone made an inappropriate comment which didn't raise an eyebrow
    until someone suggested it could get the thread locked...then, it got locked. Sad.
    But! Long live the E.B. Thread!

    That is pretty ghetto. If it works, then it should simply come that way imo.. Having said that, I might want to try that myself

    Here is another ghetto DIY - Shift Paddles Are Coated With A Mix Of Cyanoacrylate Glue And Colorado Sand For A Slip-free Grip - Must Be Hard On The Gloves, Though. Photos | Cyclingnews.com

    I actually think it's a great idea.

    ...and that likely wouldn't work for Emily as she still doesn't wear gloves.

    I have never once slipped on my triggers.... Perhaps my Spider-man hands are the reason.
