comment What are the differences in mountain bike hubs (With wheelset recommendation)?
I'm not against a single manufacturer wheelset, I was just trying to price out a set at wheelbuilder (As I've done many times for road wheels), and I realized I didn't have the vocabulary. This is a great answer, thank you very much!

comment Sliding chain over the cassette
Is your Acera a Hyperglide (HG) or an Interglide (IG) cassette? There can be compatibility problems causing jumping if you mix the two and run an HG chain on an IG cassette or vice versa.

revised Do I need to be concerned about a carbon frame if I attach a bike trailer?

comment Calculate frame stack and reach
@DanielRHicks - Probably because it's a road frame, not a TT frame and stack/reach is somewhat irrelevant.

comment Why do some triathlon seatposts go straight up and down instead of at an angle?
No downvote as it is a legitimate point, but running well off the bike is primarily about fitness. This is still a fairly hot debate among triathletes and exercise scientists that work in cycling/triathlon fields.

Corrected spelling of triathalon to triathlon.

@R.Chung - I see your point as well. I've heard rumors that the UCI might be allowing the superman position on the track soon, it'll be interesting now that McQuaid is out (Thankfully) to see what changes come around.

comment Why do some triathlon seatposts go straight up and down instead of at an angle?
@R.Chung - True, but that's more a UCI positioning thing than a frame design detail. There's a few frames (Such as the BH brand) that have a seatpost that has a huge forward to back range, so you could have a UCI legal and a UCI illegal seat position on the same frame/post.

comment I'm a bit confused on bike shoe terminology. Particularly regarding Look KEO Plus Pedals - what is required to use them?
@Ryan - Yes, that should be all you need, the Look KEO system should be compatible with any shoe that says "3 bolt compatible".

Why would you want to put a semi motor on your bike? Those things are HUGE...
