We appreciate you riding our hubs!

If your drive-side end cap keeps sliding off too easily it could be two things:

1. If it's an early version of our Torch hub with the single row FH bearing, we changed the axle spec and DS endcap to eliminate this. This would be early 2013ish.
2. If late 2013 or newer, you probably have the updated parts and it could be a worn out endcap O-ring or the O-ring is missing completely.

Email me at joe@industrynine,net or call me 828-210-5113 x. 162 and we will get you sorted out...let's keep you shredding!

Thank you!

He was probably late because the line to the porta-potty he was in was longer than expected. You know, since you can't just piss in the woods without getting fined.

There are various technologies. Most strain gauges are either piezoelectric elements or thin patterned metal lines. The piezoelectric elements work by generating a voltage in response to change. The thin metal lines' resistance changes. For a wireless gauge, there will be a battery, a transduction circuit to read out the signal, and a communications circuit.

Accelerometers are typically MEMS devices - microelectromechanical systems. They are micro-fabricated from silicon using semiconductor processing techniques. Basically, they are a mass on a spring, with the mass position transduced capacitively.

After a lot of wait I finally managed to get hold of an Öhlins TTX 22M coil shock for my Spartan. I just got back from one week of bike park riding in Åre, Sweden, and I can't be happier about the performance of the bike. I was really surprised about how much the suspension performance did improve. Both when it comes a better support in the initial part of the stroke, a more linear feel, and that all small (but tiring) hits from roots, rocks and brake bumps were more or less filtered out by the coil. I have not experienced any additional pedal bob when climbing, and it felt like the grip level had increased as well. Since I'm riding flat pedals I did also notice a significant improvement when standing up and pedalling over roots or other rough sections of the trail. With the old air shock I had more or less to wait until the trail became smoother in order not to bounce of the pedals. The only negative things I can think of is the weight and the price of the shock. However, with the aforementioned improvements I would say it's worth it. No I just need to find a fork that is as good...

I've had XTR Di2 on my Bronson 2.0 for about 6 months and i'm running a EThirteen cassette... This setup is awesome and super clean. You can run the battery in the head tube and run the wire out of a Specialized top cap for a cleaner look than a external battery.

I agree the flat profile of the pedal causes you feet to float around. I road these pedals for a couple of months with Five Ten Freerider shoes (full tread sold version) and when I placed the ball of my foot over the axle or even just slightly forward, my feet would move around. When I moved my feet more forward, then there was a lot of grip, but it was too forward for my taste. Part of the problem, in addition to the flat profile, is there are no pins near the line of the axle. As for durability, they held up to some rock strikes in AZ, including the same trails that were used in the recent VItal bike reviews--Geronimo, National, etc..
