    He's wearing the spds that are most suitable for full-on trials, which is to say no spds at all (not saying that many trials moves can't be done effectively enough on clipless too). If you're looking for a debate here, it doesn't exist.

    Back to our regularly scheduled programming. +rep for nice vid link - thanks.

    Flats vs clipless is so 2011. Clinchers or sew-ups? That is the new hot debate.

    Zinn is now convinced it's either sew-ups or road tubeless.

    Given that zero percent of my punctures sealed with stans or whatever have held above 70PSI, I have doubts.

    Torx vs. hex? Sorry, I'm off topic.


    Hidden vs. exposed nipples?

    That is some excellent riding. I'm wondering what brakes he is using. My road bike brakes would not hold me for a pedal kick. Probably ground rims with some good v's.

    I'd love to be able to balance the bike on the point of a pin like he does but alas, I have trouble keeping my bike straight on a sidewalk......

    They claim he's on a Pina Dogma 2 (like the one Wiggins used to win "Le Tour") but no mention of what wheelset he's using.

    No no no. We still have to decide which road pedals are better. Time or Look, which are better for this type of riding? I'd say the Look as it has a wider cleat which would allow a better application of power to the pedal. As well as reducing access rocking due to a smaller and narrower cleat.

    +1. I've been running road tubeless for a year and a half and they are great until I flat, at which point I have to choose between not being able to inflate beyond 70psi, tossing out a $80 tire, or running a tube.

    If that video is about road rides, I definitely don't do any road rides. Never have, never will (but would desperately love to).
    My rides:
    Lynskey Ti Pro29 SS
    RM Suzi Q 90 RSL
    KHS Team 29
    S-Works Roubaix
    KHS CX 550 cyclocross
