Looks like it could be a basic Tuned Mass Damper.

6c. The SB 29ers only have 1 internal port on the right side (no FD), and generally a shorter head tube.

What dial? You mean that giant knurled black ring at the top that's as big as the air can's diameter itself?

It's got a vein popping out of its seat tube.

Why not just use the downtube bottle mount with a Pro Storage bottle.

There's been news on floating around for a while. The new race (weight weenie) class step down cast 32. Boost, without the wider stance, and crazy light. I think around ~1400g. Performance Elite has a slick black ano stanchion finish, in between the ... more »

Regarding the VP cassette patent, it's interesting, but not sure how that supposed to be any more affordable than a GX cassette, when everything's still pinned, but just less hollowed out. Does leaving the cogs excessively long contribute to anything? ... more »

Looks 27.5 to me, due to the lack of BB drop.

Good stuff. The Blenki clip and you almost going through that creek crossing made me laugh. Great looking trails over there.

(assuming the pedals are just an excuse to give a sneak peak of the proto stuff that you aren't allowed to show)

Wild Rock'r2 with Minion shoulder knobs? Had to check and see if my E29's downtube looked that boxy and if the link was that long, to see if I wasn't looking at a proto Enduro, cause that doesn't look familiar to me.

Edit: Looks like it's just the long link that's throwing me off. Keene's instagram shows him with a normal looking 650b Enduro with a longer than normal link.

"SRAM will only make the Eagle chainring in the direct-mount style at first, and we were told it's the only Eagle component compatible with their 1x11 drivetrains." Here, I saved you $350

Chains have stayed 3/32" inner width for decades. Every narrowing has been done to the outer width. Note how KMC basically downsized their pin measurement every time another rear cog has been added.

To maintain intended levels of anti-squat on frames designed for 2x?

Added reply in a thread AutoShock - Linking Your Dropper To Your Shock 3/19/2016 2:35 PM

Sounds like what Fox intended with the CTD. I'd speculate they had their reasons for not linking the dropper to the suspension, and why mfgs, besides Rocky Mtn and Scott, didn't link the front and rear susp settings together. I don't use lockouts for ... more »

Frankly, I like vids where I can see fine details of everything from rider technique to how the trail's built. I prefer slow-mo vids where I have more time to notice details. I have a peeve against speeded up video at the "good parts". I generally like ... more »

Added reply in a thread What Are YOU Most Picky About Regarding Setup? 2/29/2016 8:03 PM

Bar height. I find hard to adapt to a bike set up with an upright-position. High rise bars, lots of spacers under the stem, stem rising upwards... the horror! I will admit that I'm more leg than torso though.
