If it's anything like going from a 2.25 to a 2.4 Ardent I wouldn't be surprised. The wider tread responds much differently, and you can use lower pressures due to the higher volume. Besides, why wouldn't you run a 2.4 if it fits? Weight? Worth the price to me.

Having run Maxxis Ardent's in a 29x2.4 on a Stan's Arch (not newer EX, but old Arch) as well as a Velocity Blunt 35 I can vouch for existing wider tire designs benefiting from the wider rim. I'll be unlacing my old wheels to take advantage of those benefits on both my mountain bikes this winter.

Akrigg is about one video away from being the most sought after cyclist for any brand. He could sell anything. I had a quick moment of thinking CX would be fun.

Have they been granted any patents for the "technology" yet though?

Clearly RaceFace rings use a different shock leverage ratio, so the patents are not infringed...

That's what I've been using the last season. Better/more usable ratios too.

I need my hands for work so I wear gloves in case of a crash. I can't tell you how many times I've clipped trees and still ended up with battered/bruised hands. On the road is different however, depends on the weather.

Brand? It appears to be a MN area code...

It seems to me that doing so creates a gap for the chain to get caught in and fold causing catastrophic failure. Wouldn't a better solution, (and one that doesn't piss off SRAM) be to just use the limit screw and... limit the derailleur stroke?

The problems I've had have been from the derailleur going for a ride with the spokes, not from the chain dropping inside the spokes, although that happened once without damage luckily. I just wish my hanger would have broke so I didn't have to replace the derailleur.

That plastic disc will stop the chain from eating into your spokes if it goes too far over, but it isn't going to stop a rear derailleur that is hit on a rock. The plastic disc is rendered useless by a well-tuned derailleur stopping the chain from coming over and...more

There is a little car for sale in the UK called a Caterham. It's design is essentially the same as when it was conceived in the 1950's. The models with the high output engines will put seconds into any modern supercar around a track. The point is, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Bikes...more

ISCG is the standard, not ISCG OLD or ISCG-03 - those are just made up names. ISCG-05 was invented for a standard that never came - ISIS OS. ISCG-05 has a larger BCD and thus limits where you can design pivots in/around the BB area. There are plenty of BIG bike companies still using the...more
