Ha! Don't worry. I temporarily broke my gimbal smashing it into the seat on said "bottom out testing" the following day. There are some excellent old school ankle testing drops all over Porcupine. And I did my best to find them all.

This is what I told Fisher when he handed...more

Until your sponsor makes a metric bike, then it's the best thing since sliced bread, right?

There are now 98 hardware options instead of 80.

Travel reducer spacers. They are actually offered in 2.5mm steps instead of the 5mm increments shown. So you can have a 230x65, 230x62.5, 230x60, 230x57.5, then step down to 210 chassis options- 210x55, 210x52.5 etc.

Straight from Pinion's website: http://pinion.eu/en/p1-12-gearbox/

WEIGHTS
Gearbox 3 2350,0 g
Rotary shifter 95,0 g
Crank arms „CNC“ 175 mm 4 434,5 g
Crank arms „Forged“ 175 mm 4 481,5 g
Chain tensioner (Federstärke: 2,5 mm) 5 122,0 g
Chain ring 30t 51,0 g
Chain ring 24t 37,5 g
Gearbox Spider 104 mm 40,0 g
Rear sprocket 26t 37,5 g
Rear sprocket 21t 29,0 g

So gearbox is 5.1 lbs by itself. I think you could take a 'normal' carbon bike build, add 4 lbs and be pretty close to the total weight.

FYI, the SRAM Guide brakes come stock with organic pads instead of sintered. Change those out and all of a sudden these are awesome brakes.

Lots of people run light compression/more air spring (tokens, pressure whatever you need) to help a bike feel less harsh on high speed impacts. It works well, but can feel bouncy if you're not used to it.

Old bits of shirts as hole plugs with a spoke to push them in (does this work?) Yes- it works well... thicker rag material seems to work best- like an old towel.

We don't use a whole lot of DAQ on prototypes. We have stored files and can run them through a shock dyno. Generally I've used linear position vs time and some accelerometer based stuff. Sounds like a cool project!
