    Wow, that is a whole angle of cancer biology I know nothing about, though I've been out of the cancer game for a few years now. Pretty rad, though I wouldn't expect wide clinical use for some time. I think the ability to do more regular "biopsies" would be super useful.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    As someone who works with RNAseq discovery: sounds like another bullshit fishing trip

    There are like 15 papers that 'discover' RNA profiles (all different, I don't think there's even overlap) for RA drug response and yet SOMEHOW no diagnostic has been brought to market

    I might read the actual paper, but I might noti mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    I dont know if this is sciency enough for y'all, but it does relate to bikes and we don't have a 'here there be data' thread, sooo

    Velonews did a test of a bunch of high-end tires, to determine which rolled best. The difference between some really popular tires is pretty staggering.
    Tire test here

    And, here's the chart:

    mmm, data.

    This is the article I've been looking for in several conversations with roadiebros lately.

    Also glad to see my preferred road tire is #4.You said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?

    Looks like the Specialized S-Works Turbo is the best bang for the buck (and the low TPI means it'll stand up better on our shitty streets).

    It's a pretty amazing chart, actually. Double the difference in rolling resistance from the top to the bottom. Damn.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    Has anyone else noticed that in some of these, they are using butyl inner tubes, and in others, they're using latex? I want to know how the Specialized S-Works Turbo compares with the Specialized Turbo Pro when you have the SAME tube in BOTH.

    You'll get far more of a difference from shaving your legs, and that doesn't cost a thing.::lols at Dan's great photoshopping job:: ::slowly stops laughing:: ::googles:: ::kills self:: -tinyhonkshus

    Damn.


    Low thread count means less comfortable, though?

    Its also interesting that the S-Works Turbo is tested in 26mm and the Schwalbe One's are on there in 2 different widths. Anyway I don't know if I would use 26mm tires on rims that are meant for 22 or 23s because there's a theory that it creates a bulge, which effects the performance.
