Great questions rather than a stock 10 same questions for everyone. It helps to see the insight to the people who really know how to pin it consistently. Most of it seems mental but also being able to read lines to gain advantages. Good stuff!

I had a ZS56 lower cup mounted on at first on my small frame. While installing the tapered fork, I realized there was play in the headset. After taking it apart, it appeared the tapered steerer was too long to fit the headtube. Rockshox and Fox changed their tapered standard length but Formula being a smaller brand has not yet. Was putting the bike together friday noght and leaving today, I had to find a quick fix with parts from home. Only way was to put an external cup to raise length of headtube. Problem is EC56 only exists as part of angleset. I had a 0° lower cup laying around from a previous built. Increasing headtube from the bottom also makes the bike a little slacker.
Lots of my friends who are racing on HD3 are using 1° angleset though.
I'll decide when I come back from NZ if I do it too or not.

I put it in grams (coming from Euroland) and it automatically converted it to lbs - and ounces apparently.

There were some pretty big changes at the UCI in the last year. Mcquaid was voted out and it seems like Hein Verbuggen was told to beat it. The UCI had some bigger problems than not dealing with enduro. The new president is from England. I think he played a big part in getting the...more

No worries. I need to printed cover-up stickers to have SX instead of AM.

No, it's a SX with a Girly paintjob, still has 160mm of travel. Girly comes only in AM usually, that's why the paintjob doesn't match the bike. It's not available like that usually

Sunday December 18th was the 2nd round of the X-FUSION/CCCX "SUPER D" SERIES - they requalify it from DH to Super-D as it's not technical enough and there is quite a bit of pedaling involved. Also, it is now USA Cycling sanctionned.
