Correct, They are Paul Components.

comment When is a wheel considered true?
What runout is acceptable depends on the use of the wheel, and the manufacturer. Xentis uses .2mm as acceptable runout. Lightweight, because of their manufacturing process, uses 1mm. I personally find anything more than .25mm to be an annoyance. But .5mm is not likely to be an issue. If you have doubts, check with the wheel or rim manufacturer.

@Rider_X As are many of the "When and Why should I change my chain?" questions already on the site.

comment Pressure mapping a Brooks saddle
@Rider_X Only for manufacturing purposes. For fitting purposes, not useful except in the context of a specific rider.

comment Pressure mapping a Brooks saddle
It doesn't. Regardless of the brand you are asking about, pressure data like this is only good for one thing. The thing that makes this not useful to others is that you are asking for a data source for research. Anyone not doing your research, doesn't need that. I appreciate that you want to learn, and tried to point you in the direction of someone that might have the answer you want, because I'd like to be helpful. But the question and its only possible answer are not on topic here, in my opinion. Any further discussion should be taken to meta.

comment Can shimano di2 be programmed to be automatically readjust shifting for different hub/wheel types?
Not for Shimano, no. With SRAM's upcoming electronic group, there is a wireless system in the prototype phases, but it's not close to release. Shimano doesn't see the utility, since on a wireless system, each component has it's own battery, and needs to be charged separately. In addition, if your friend said the only wire was going to the battery, that would indicate a single battery system, and that isn't possible with a wireless system. Each radio receiver needs a power source. If there is no wire, it needs its own battery.

comment Pressure mapping a Brooks saddle
If it was useful for me to have someone else's saddle scan in relation to my fit, then I could see the utility for general use. Since it isn't useful for fitting, unless I have my own scan done, then at best this is requesting "product, service, or learning material recommendations", and off topic. That said, if you all think it useful, feel free to vote to re-open.
