    1. vibrating bike (and rider) is absorbing energy that reduces the bike’s speed.

      The narrower tires, the more vibrations

    2. And since we now have very similar tires in widths from 26 to 54 mm, we could do controlled testing of all these sizes. We found that they all perform the same. Even on very smooth asphalt, you don’t lose anything by going to wider tires (at least up to 54 mm). And on rough roads, wider tires are definitely faster.

      Wider tires performe as well as the narrower ones, but they definitely perform better on rough roads

    3. Tire width influences the feel of the bike, but not its speed. If you like the buzzy, connected-to-the-road feel of a racing bike, choose narrower tires. If you want superior cornering grip and the ability to go fast even when the roads get rough, choose wider tires.

      Conclusion of a debunked mth: Wide tires are NOT slower than the narrower ones

    1. The actual availability of NH4+ and NO3− is difficult to measure in soil. When rates of microbial N transformations and/or plant uptake are rapid, then NH4+ or NO3− levels can be undetectable in soil

    1. all signals are interchangeable so any out port can be connected to any in port

      For those of us who’ve had to deal with distinctions between audio and control signals, this is actually pretty major. However, it’s already become something in modular synthesis. People who get started in Eurorack, for instance, may not need to worry nearly as much about different types of signals as those who used Csound or, more importantly for this marketing copy, Cycling ’74 Max.

      Boris Bikes were created by Boris Johnson as an alternative mode of transport that is eco friendly and promote the idea of healthy living. However, they cost money, money that many people cannot afford to splurge on.
