Wins like this showcase a riders talent so much better than DH. The chance to go up against so many talented, world class riders...and over multiple runs, but just one brief DH run. I love DH, but Rude is proving himself against a stacked field in the EWS

Awesome for Jill winning both Downhill and Dual Slalom. That is some serious fitness and skill!

(And thanks Vital for post results deep!)

Added reply in a thread Riding Trail / XC without a chamois? 7/17/2015 1:03 PM

No diaper in rides under an hour or shuttles. I'll take Ride's advice and try it for longer rides. Perhaps saddles have improved so much to need the chamois less. P

"3rd Chamber Air Spring Technology" - the shock has 2 air valves, one at the main chamber with the auto-sag and another at the top of the shock... at the end of the stroke.

IFP to control progression/bottoming?

Nice! I always ran my Enduro with a volume spacer in the rear shock to firm up the mid-stroke and to get that land on a couch type feel.

Hi Alon, I've been adjusting volume for years with different materials. The latest, a thin plastic packaging that comes with Specialized tires. Some say use part of a tube, but I wonder about the compressiveness of the material. Others say P-tex ski base repair material, which would work very well. Just don't use oil as it can migrate to the negative spring.

Don't use anything that can dissolve in oil.

Cut to fit, then cut to how you want the spring to behave.

Obviously the manufacturer's parts are the best solution, but in their absence these solutions work well.

I actually like the idea of scooter and skate boarders using the track. A recent track I saw being built was using a hardening agent (probably a light concrete mix). My plan is to get the local teenagers involved in the maintenance, so they have "ownership" (respect the track), and engagement with the city/community. It could be good experience for them.

I dig those Progressive Pump Tracks, but am less hot on "falling off" when getting off line (thinking of beginners and kids).

Thanks for the info!
