Speaking of heatmaps, https://labs.strava.com/heatmap can be very useful for route planning, especially to determine the existence of stuff and identify if anyone (on Strava, anyway) has ever actually traversed it.

edit: new page, better add some content
Badass y/n? Anyone used these in R1/F1/X1 modelway?

What's the point?
Well set up Hayes mech disks work great and with so many cheap Shimano hydro options out there, I can't wrap my head around the hybrid system in 2017.

Also for sale by Origin8.

Someone says they work well, but I still haven't seen one that performs any better than a regular mech disc with compressionless housing and good pads.

Do they require the same constant adjustment for pad wear as mechanical discs?

Pretty much everything I've ever bought from Origin8 is total garbage. Origin8 brakes seem like a good way to die.

Their rebranded Cane Creek Road levers are a good deal, but yeah.

As long and there are no moving parts, I have no problem with most Origin8 stuff. It's the same shit from the same Taiwanese catalogs as everyone else. In some cases, like their narrow-wide ring, their products are demonstrably better than name brand shit like Woltloof.

They don't do themselves any favors with their names and branding, though.

I have an Origin8 cartridge bearing boost front hub on a spencer. it has not exploded. It was purchased because it was the absolute cheapest boost front hub I could find, and really... what's gonna go wrong with a cartridge bearing front hub?

Yes, because they are a completely sealed system. The TRP's 'self adjust' just like any other hydro.

I read some overly complicated review/tech article the other day about them and wrote them off as dumb just because of the need to adjust pad contact just like a mechanical system.

Yeah but don't you just turn that one little knob to adjust the pads? So it's slightly better to adjust, other than the extra complexity?

(disclaimer: I'd just buy the Hayes)

That's great. I wouldn't want any of those bikes, but I am glad there are people out there who make them.

yeah i have no idea what that random bar end thing is. maybe he wants to shift from the race position (rather than downtube) but couldn't figure out how to mount it to his little bullhorn thingy?
i am guessing it's CHRONO NERO (because deda) but let's just go with CHRONO NERD

Edit: also, yeah, it looks like he had aero bars clamped to pursuit bars with TT brake levers, but couldn't find this Jtek jawn, so decided yolo, clamp half the aerobar to the bars

Like, look how normal that looks

That Jtek brake brought me about as close as I've ever come to walking off the job.

and it's unnecessary since interrupter levers exist

why do they even bother with brake levers out on the bar ends on those bikes if they're hill climb bikes? use interrupters, get shorter cable runs, save weight in all areas?

Also copped a set of their Radiance for the Stumpjumper

Not a fan of plastic pins, haven't had luck with them providing traction in the wet.

Didn't have great luck with the Odysseys, whatever they are called.
