comment Why are wheels so important for racing?
@DanielRHicks: That's maybe because there isn't much difference in violins of that price range. For wheels though, the price range you mentioned does make a difference, both in MTB and road bikes.

comment Why are wheels so important for racing?
@DanielRHicks: "most riders" is very generic. If you mean most riders who are into racing or interested in racing, then I think that most of them will be able to tell a 100 from a 1000 wheelset.

comment Torn. Want to support LBS but they don't carry what I really want
Just order it online. I really don't know why you should feel bad by not ordering from a specific shop.

comment What's the difference between All-Mountain, Cross Country, Freeride, Downhill bikes?
@kjmccarx: The rider weight and travel do not necessarily correlate. You can find a 250lbs rider who really needs a 100mm travel bike, and a 140lbs rider who really needs a 200mm travel bike. Depends on what you want to do.

comment What's the difference between All-Mountain, Cross Country, Freeride, Downhill bikes?
@sixtyfootersdude: I think yes. Nowadays downhill race bikes can get as low as 15kg. And nobody would be comfortable abusing a 15kg bike for serious freeriding.

comment What's the logic behind this chain length estimation method?
A full suspension bike with a pivot design which has "chain growth" will require a longer chain. In that case measure after having removed all air or coil from the rear shock and fully compressed it.
