comment Tubeless conversion on schrader valve rims
The first two notes on the page mention Stans rims specifically. The third note muddies the waters, but upon re-reading it, I now believe the article is meant to be more general than just Stans rims.

It appears that list is specifically for Stans rims. Am I misunderstanding that?

@vclaw, how exactly does a visor above your face keep mud from hitting it from below?

comment Why do Mountain Bike helmets have visors?
my 2 cents: to arbitrarily differentiate them from "road" helmets. no other reason. if the sun's in your eyes, sunglasses and a cap do wonders.

comment Is there any advantage to preparing the tire bead with sealant during installation on the rim
Ahh -- I totally get that. Plenty of broccoli here in Oregon.

comment Should I not use a trail because of poor conditions?
@Vorac If you're skidding and drifting, you do have more impact on the trail and you should modify your behavior. IMBA trail design guidance mentions best practices on how to limit the temptation to skid. But as a trail user, you have a responsibility to ride in a manner that minimizes trail impact (i.e., don't skid!)
