probably from North/Southbridge or onboard-graphics of a mainboard. But when I see the SC-Vids about Minnaar and Doughie talking about their bike-setup this could very well be a troll attempt for the gear-queer. I mean the...more

The funky adapter+trunnion mount shock is so we could fit a "metric" sized shock on a frame designed for the old standard sized shock. It's not just adding complexity for fun.

I don't know why mountain bike media keep trying different ways to get clicks through crash videos. Hasn't the absence of clicks told the story? The story being, we or others we know, know what it's like to be there when someone balls up and has to spend time in the hospital = it's not entertainment for us. It's a real consequence we want to avoid when partaking in the sport we love.

Love my original versions. I wish I could fit more in them, with the new versions, I guess I can. Price is steep tho, and reading that they heat up is a huge negative where I live.

The tires are probably made by CST/Maxxis and will use Maxxis compounds and casings, so they will behave quite a bit different. Or made by Kenda, regardless, the point stands. How many Minion/Highroller knock offs are there? And none behave the same due to different casings and compounds. (I do wish the Rock'r2 was lighter, but then I've had casing cuts with the lighter Reinforced Michelins.)

Another tip...

After taping the rim I always mount up the tires with a tube and inflate to the high end of the recommended PSI (45 - 60 psi). This helps seal the tape up better. After letting it sit for about 30 min I'll remove the tube, but leave one side of the tire bead set in the rim. This will...more

Nice write up. Just want to add to expect the tape to seal for a maximum of about 3 years before the tape adhesive breaks down, unsealable air leaks are the result. To fix, a complete retaping is required starting with step 1, the alcohol rim bed clean.

Yes, progressiveness will do that to an extent, at least on the more traditional rear triangle layouts. But also bear in mind that 140 will do that a lot more than 160. Sounds obvious, but 140mm bikes with modern geo give you such a good feeling on the trail that you sometimes...more

Nice write up. I wonder if supportive midstroke/progressive and hang-up on fast chop go hand in hand on any bike. Not a negative on either, more of a pick-your-flavor for your riding.
