@coldharbour is your man for that, he loves reshaping tubes.
Getting caught out like that is simply shoddy planning
That's why you run a little bike shop and DT run a big factory. Building sufficient capacity to fully service the initial demand spike would significantly reduce the lifecycle profitability of a product. You only have to look at games consoles and mobile phone handsets to see that shortages in the first few months are a normal part of industrial planning.
the Internet was (In my view) created largely to facilitate arguing
I'll just start making shit up then
That's what governments do when making claims for the potential or realised effects of their interventions.
Therefore RTM explains all reductions in KSI's?
No, loads of other confounding factors are involved, making it difficult to ascribe effects to any particular intervention in a reliable way.
The original idea was to make the Omega X a better fit on the Cervelos. The caliper mounted cable stop on the X doesn't have the chamfer on it which made the original Omega such a tidy fit on the classic Cervelos, the X needs a huge shim between the brake body and the fork crown to make the cable stop clear the nose cone, so you end up with a big gap between the brake arms and the fork blades.
I'm happy with my flexi-noodle and original Omega, I'm doing the bare-wire style hanger for somebody else.
if you have to wait a couple of months for a £35 rim then I would look elsewhere. It is a £35 rim not an HED Belgium+.
I'd happily wait a couple of months for a £30 R460 if the alternative is instant delivery of a £100+ Hed rim :-)
if you wanted something from their catalog which sonic dont stock
If Sonic don't stock it, they can get it. It takes a long time, but they will order anything Gebhardt can make.
What am I missing?
That a fairly short duration random spike in the accident rate can be sufficient to get a place a reputation as a black spot.
what's the added stack height?
3mm from the top of the bearing collet to the bottom of the stem, so 2mm more than one of my bearing covers or 1mm less than the stock cover on a P2/P3 etc.
