Standard acceleration due to free-fall, aka gravity on Earth.

so the only legit standard so far is the diameter of handlebars at the grip/shifter/brake end?
Nope, road bikes, and there was a very niche ladies/thin size as well.
Eh? Not on my Syntace and Shimano set up – is there a newer one?
The new standard dispenses with the top part of the mech so the knuckle bit bolts straight to the hanger.
Ooh – saddle rail diameters?
nope, a very big nope, there’s threads on weightweenies listing which saddles/posts are compatible, some are even oval shaped!Posted 4 years agotheblackmountMember

Cheers – seen it now. I hate the original Shadow mech anyway and the Syntace mech hanger tab / break away bolt design which is good in theory is flawed in execution. The tab can rotate by several mil even when its nipped up to over-tight and you are more likely to trash the mech before the bolt breaks. Happened twice to me…Posted 4 years ago
When you get back on something with two wheels, can you manual for days over almost any terrain?
If only that was the case – unfortunately my wheelie (rather than manual, as you’re always pedalling on a uni) skills don’t seem to have improved, though I suspect I just need to put in a bit of proper practice to get the skills to transfer. Even doing a wheelie on a swing bike with direct drive isn’t easy!Posted 4 years ago
