We may have to throw Terry's test out if he didn't use a Suburban! :^)terry b said:That video got me thinking. Took two pieces of discarded steerer tubing, 1-1" and 1-1-1/8" and repeated the test.
The pictures speak for themselves. Guess I'm going to have to stop parking my car on my Calfee. :idea:
I was loathe to drag my Suburban out of its bag and to re-connect the battery. Looks like my BMW worked just fine though.Juanmoretime said:We may have to throw Terry's test out if he didn't use a Suburban! :^)
I can see where a few of you may have doubt's in Litespeed's testing method, I do too. Considering that they are in the south they should have placed the tubing under a pick up on blocks and rocked the pick up until it fell on the tubing. Then I could believe the results.
elviento said:A couple of thoughts:
First, I don't know where the tubes are from. If the three tubes are actual sections from similarly priced and regarded bikes of different materials then the comparison would be a bit more fair. In fact I'd love to see that truck run over the new Ghisallo.
Second, the titanium tubing was the smallest diameter of the three, and apparently the smaller the diameter, the harder it is to crush. So it's not fair at all.
Third, like other said, being run over by a truck isn't really a real life concern, so it really isn't relevant.
