Can I Run a Wide Tire on My Rim? Mountain Bike Rim Widths De-Mystified

The only thing more confusing than searching for the right mountain bike tire — and right ply, and casing, and tread pattern, and compound — is making sure that it’s the correct tire width for the rim. Today there are just as many rim width options as there are tire widths, especially following the introduction of fat bikes and plus tires to the mountain bike scene. The crazy thing is, finding a good rim width for a particular tire and riding style can make a huge difference in ride quality. With mix-matched rim and tire widths, a tire can get too floppy, or stiff, or lose its cornering ability. But don’t fret! We’re here to help make sense of this and have written a general guide that should point everyone to the right rim and tire width. For someone buying a stock, complete mountain bike, this probably won’t be an issue as designers should have specced the bike with a suitable rim and tire combination. But for those who are upgrading either a tire or rim, it’s easy to drown in choices. If a tire that’s too wide for a rim is mounted, the tire shape becomes too tall and round, like a lollipop or lightbulb, and then it becomes floppy at the top because the casing is constricted. ...

How New Cases Of Lung Damage Emerged In The U.S. Countertop Industry : Shots

Samples of Silestone, a countertop material made of quartz. Cutting the material releases dangerous silica dust that can damage people’s lungs if the exposure to the dust is not properly controlled. Catie Dull/NPR hide caption Samples of Silestone, a countertop material made of quartz. Cutting the material releases dangerous silica dust that can damage people’s lungs if the exposure to the dust is not properly controlled. Ublester Rodriguez could not have anticipated that his life would be profoundly changed by kitchen and bathroom countertops. He says that he grew up poor, in a small Mexican town, and came to the United States when he was 14. He spoke no English, but he immediately got a job. “In the beginning I was working in a Chinese restaurant, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. It was all day, so I never had time to go to school,” he recalls. “I was a dishwasher.” He labored in restaurant kitchens for about eight years. But he wanted Sundays off to go to church and play soccer. So when his brother-in-law offered to help him get a new job, he jumped at the chance. That’s how he ended up in a workshop that cuts and polishes slabs of an artific...

From time to time, TTAC will highlight automotive products we think may be of interest to

From time to time, TTAC will highlight automotive products we think may be of interest to our community. Plus, posts like this help to keep the lights on around here. Learn more about how this works. Far beyond the reaches of old-school car bras and hood protectors are these clear paint protection films. Targeted at drivers who give a damn about their car’s paintwork, these options are dandy ways to keep a vehicle’s finish in good shape while not hiding anything under a leather protector. Go ahead and expunge the mental image of a tired Camaro wearing a tattered LeBra, under which hides so much rust and miscolored paint. These modern-day solutions are a world apart from what was available in the bad old days. Also, my targeted ads are quite bizarre now after writing up all these commerce posts for TTAC. (Editor’s note: As noted above, this post is meant to both help you be an informed shopper for automotive products but also to pay for our ‘90s sedan shopping habits operating expenses. Some of you don’t find these posts fun, but they help pay for Junkyard Finds, Rare Rides, Piston Slaps, and whatever else. Thanks for reading.) There’s nothing wrong with choosing a...

Digital Original: From using her hands to sharing her voice, creativity flows out Open Navigation Close Navigation Search Facebook Twitter YouTube Email

When it comes to creative people, our state is definitely not lacking. One North Dakota woman describes herself as multi-passionate and chooses to not let one interest consume her life, especially since she has so much to offer. Andrea Ficeck Falcon is a long-time musician and songwriter in Bismarck. For the last 13 years, she’s also been known as someone who sells handmade goods and visual art. It’s evolved over time. First starting with crocheted beanies and scarves, she then added clothing, bags, and accessories. She eventually upgraded her sewing machine to do some leatherwork. As she continued to explore her original loves of ink and acrylic, she played with linocuts, screenprinting, origami, paper quilling, mixed media and painting murals. Now, after many years of collaborating with other musicians, her latest ventures have led her to create a one-woman band called Ovaflow, using a looper pedal to produce her own music. A looper pedal allows you to record short segments and loop them over and over during a performance. She said Ovaflow will be a combination of music genres such as Hip Hop, R&B, and Soul and will debut at Laughing Sun in Bismarck on December 26th. Some ...
