I was told by my bike shop that's it's $200 to swap to the charger damper on the yari.

I rode the last generation 29 for nearly 3 years and really liked that bike. That's the longest I've ever had a bike. I test rode the elite 2017 e29 at bootleg canyon and it felt great. It...more

$200 is a very good price from your shop. i've never even seen the kits for less than $200. i got a good deal on the charger kit for my boxxer and it was $275 (my lbs wanted $370 without install)

sick bike!

comment about the suspension. the yari looks like a great fork except for the motion control. i've had a couple forks with motion control and i hate it. such a crap damping system. i've either sold them or swapped for the charger. it'd be great if rockshox replaced it with a different low cost (relative to the charger) alternative

This article was good but not great, because without a parallel test of wheels without the FTD we don't really know if it made a difference. Ideally you would have run into all the same curbs and rocks with and w/o FTD, and the broken...more

This is the bike I was wondering how you were going to comment on the pedal feedback. I previously saw anti-squat and pedal kickback figures from another site and then when I watched Bike Mag's review of the bike, they said there was low pedal feedback. Interesting how your...more

yea can you believe they didn't get every flat pedal made from every manufacturer? it's almost like they tried to get a sensible subset of the market to let us know their thoughts and comparisons. this clearly shows they don't care about american manufacturing.

kind of crazy how good he is on a 20. MTB is lucky to have this guy.

I'd like to see rogatkin do a boosted lookback on a hip like that (without practicing into foam first), after all, he is the BMXer, no?

The similarities to a car or go-cart throttle begin and end with the fact you use your feet. It requires you to pedal, a car and go cart require you to simply push down with your foot. I see a world of difference between those two things. Also, it has less than 1hp at peak power; this is an assist not a machine that can drive itself.

Yeah, I love the level of bitching about "no 26." You know what a 27.5 fork feels like? It feels like a 26" fork that's one headset spacer taller.

Totally dude, it raises your BB 3mm and slackens your HA by 1/3 of a degree. You're totally going to feel that.

At least they offer the Charger damper upgrade for existing 20mm 26" Lyrik owners.
