    Can I put gravel tires on a mtb rim? Tubeless?

    So the rear wheel on my gravel bike is getting beat up and will need to be replaced soon. I have a number of extra mtb wheels (eg, Stan’s flow Ex). I am pretty sure they will fit the bike, but will the mtb rim work with a tubeless gravel tire (35 or 38)?

    Totally random refrigerator question

    I just got a mini fridge and there are two Cooper tubes in the back that have foam on them. I can’t find any indication whether i am supposed to take them off (ie, they are there just for protection when in the box) or if I am supposed to keep (maybe provides insulation to the tubes?) Thoughts?

    Thx guys this really helps. This what I am taking from this: * Best approach is condenser mic as it picks up the true sound of the instrument (as your ear hears it) * The reason people online are saying a preamp is needed is when you are plugging directly into the PA. The pickup in the...

    thanks Eric. truth be told it wasnt recorded via phone. was recorded using this thing which is run through a free phone based app. the app has a few basic pre-set effects (i.e., that you can not adjust after your record) and a very basic (and very user friendly) mixing section. so, theres...
