Do larger rotors affect braking performance?

    Uuuh…science… Cool

  2. Really interesting. I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering but I found that my course did not cover many practical everyday-life applications of what I was learning. So it is great to find a blog where engineering knowledge is actually demonstrated in practice

      Glad you like it!

      I’m doing my second year for a Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering and wanted to practice it with real-life examples. The way I see it is that they teach you the basics at school and the rest is up to you to learn, or not. Moreover, I thought this could be a good way to show possible future employers that I’m actually interested in engineering and topics related to it. Should look a lot more convincing than just giving my word for it with no actual proof of my interests.

      Anyways, before I get more carried away, thanks for the comment! I took a quick look at your blog too. Looks certainly interesting, will take a better look at it later on! πŸ™‚

    Oh, those weight weenie rotors …

      Yeah, they are pretty weight weenie indeed but work well enough for XC. Thanks for checking out my blog though Holden, I might get back to updating it again this Summer once I have more time πŸ™‚
