@chrisingrassia the link here, shows the 3 positions, you need to pull the retention system straps OUT of the middle that it comes in productional, pop them out and move it up or down. https://youtu.be/K--oHfdRRsE?t=30

Just killed my strava account, of 5 years, this article prompted me to do so-shitty trails or not. I will try this training peaks app to track my pathetic 'training' haha. Thanks for the insight people. Cheers.

Interesting comments from Peaty. Much of the impetus for the UCI point rules came from current WC teams and athletes pushing to make the WC's more exclusive to top-tier riders only. Seems those feelings change a bit when confronted with the...more

This really blows, and a blow for Enduro as JG is one of the main draws. Get well soon Jared, he always comes back faster than before, so that kind of sucks for the comp!

This came out beautiful looking, and in speaking with riders that have tried it, it's opened up some more trail doors. Bravo SRAM.

Man, I see it as a re-birth for some. Take my boss for example, Troy Lee. The dude loves mountain biking, A LOT. But almost 2 years ago he had a horrific motocross crash and shattered his hip. He has been recovering ever since and MTB for him while still one of his greatest pleasures, is tougher, and he has to cut his rides short because of the pain that arises in his hips from mashing pedals up the hills in Laguna where he rides. I think a bike like this is a game changer for him, because it will assist his riding-but he still likes to get loose on technical terrain. I don't know, I was a hater, but, I want Troy to get one, I think it could change his life, like MTB has done before for him....Hell, I want one...but, I drive a prius, so I already crossed a line lol.

Did you try moving the retention system up into the highest baskets? I had a slight issue as well, with radar locks, but fixed when I moved the retention up.
