After watching this vid, I'm fairly convinced that bar width is connected to hip width and mobility. Those with narrow hips and decent width bars like Ratboy at 2:10 look like they are so free to move on the bike, and in a comfy place. Those with the bars a lot lower than the hip and standing kind of tall, like Gee, look kind of awkward on the bike.

Hard materials like 7075-T6 apparently take a lot of machining time when milled from billet. They've got to program it and run a large enough batch to make the programming time worth it (can take ~8 hours to program the machine). Time is money with those ... more »

I've not seen anyone plow through rock gardens at race speed chunkier than the ones at 1:00 in.

Cool way to market. Definitely got me to watch through it, rather than completely pass over it as a Northwave ad, considering I don't ride clipless.

Well, the one with PEF was good too.

That's exactly it. Maybe it wasn't a video... oh well. Thanks! Did a reverse image search on it to find the source and *now* it shows up on my google image search, on the 3rd row down.

Anyone remember watching a video where a mtn biker exits a cave mouth that is on practically a vertical cliff face, and rolls down the side of it like it were a vert ramp. The stone looked similar to southern Utah, but cannot confirm that the video actually ... more »

Nice and efficient mechanic setup. BEEF. Hope that's not a tall can of silicone-based polish in the back.

Added reply in a thread do you flip your bike upside down to put on your front wheel? 6/6/2015 1:41 AM

Semi-related question, how do you hang your bike when doing fork servicing? I just stick another fork into the bike, since I have a spare and I only have wall hooks, feedback floor display stands, and my 1 feedback workstand. I figured I'd hook the saddle ... more »

Wow, the bushing bulge on the lowers looks so much lower than on RockShox's offerings... that certainly plays a big role in providing the extra stiffness and less bushing bind. Further apart = better for suspension performance, but the stanchions need to be that much longer (heavier) and need to have tight tolerance before they hit the inside-bottom of the lowers at max travel (no travel adjust, requiring unique parts for specific fork travel). That all said, if the Lefty had damping on a BOS level, I'd be all over that. The 45mm offset on this is a turn-off.

The front's pretty easy to do upright, but gets knocked over easily, doing even more damage, so I usually do it upside down with something soft like my gloves padding the vulnerable bits. Same reasons for the rear, even though cage lock makes it so easy. ... more »

I also wish the hub had more PoE. It clunks loudly when engaging, especially when you have an uneven pedal stroke. Reminds me of a 18 PoE DT, it's so annoying. If it engaged with less noise and shock/feedback, I wouldn't notice it as much (and be less annoyed).

Gnarly chunk you got there. That last pic reminds me of the Stairway to Hell in Noble Canyon. I rode that for the first time about a week ago and felt like my SJ EVO 26 with XC rear tire was undergunned. Pinch flatted it there even at 40 psi (pumped it up hard after the 1st pinch flat, and it was my last tube)...
