Let's all grease one side and leave the other side dry, then all come back in a year or two with stories of which side worked loose or got seized. Then we can start another debate about Cornwall being more humid than Norfolk or why cycling an anticlockwise circular route daily makes your chainrings fall off.
An excellent idea about one side greased and not the other.It allows the tests to be carried out in different conditions. Some could grease the drive side whereas others could grease the non drive side. Then theres the usage factor or steady or smooth on road pedaling versus more jerky off road with occasional high torques
Can we at least agree to stop using CNC machines,Lathe morse tapers as examples because theyre not the same thing and dont perform under the same conditions or even use the same torques to drive them.
You cant compare a truck to a sports car and rule the truck better because it has a more powerful engine.
I think despite the protestations this thread might actually achieve some interesting results. Well, that is if the tests are actually carried out
