Looks almost like a standard wireless bike computer like a Garmin or something, to measure distance, cadence, and speed.

The cassette fits a standard "10-speed" splined driver but requires the use of their 11-speed chain (PC-1130 is recommended) and a spacer behind it as the cassette cogs are spaced for 11-speed and "lopped off at 7."

I did like the Split Second stem, too. Like the Point One Podium pedals, I kept that stem on my bike wayyyyyyy too long. I think both the pedals and the stem lasted me 3 or 4 bikes...

He's running a med frame for the freeride setup and a large for the DH. The shorter stem is likely to compensate for the longer reach.

John, our tester for this particular product, can definitely hold his own on a bike... even if he runs crazy high pressure compared to most.

Sorry, I just saw this message. I used "Aircraft Stripper" that I got from a local auto parts store. They make both a paint on "gel" and a spray on. I used a combination of both. Took me a good 6 or so hours... I'm thinking in the future, if I ever strip a bike again, I'll pay the $100 or so bucks it takes to get it chemically done at a powder coater. That way I won't have to worry about all the chemicals on me from doing it myself and it won't be media/sand/walnut blasted so all the tolerances will be good still.

If you plan on doing it yourself, gloves, a good mask or even respirator and long sleeves are a must.

Added a comment about product review Tested: Maxxis Aggressor 1/22/2016 7:23 AM
C50_img_0045_1428943983

This was meant to be a standalone test and not necessarily a direct comparison to the Minion and HRII. But, since you guys asked, as mentioned in the article, we found cornering traction to be similar to a Minion, even under hard cornering. It's interesting GeorgeWHayduke mentioned the Maxxis catalog rating the Aggressor as slower rolling than the DHF because that wasn't our experience. It was alluded to in the review that it's not the fastest rolling tire we've ridden and not the slowest. Perhaps we could have just said it doesn't roll as fast as a Cross Mark (which we did) but it's not quite as sluggish as a DHFHRII (which we were vague about). One point we did fail to mention and will address here is the climbing traction of the tire. The Aggressor replaced a HRII rear and DHF front, with previously having the bike setup with DHF's front and rear. We found the Aggressor to hold traction better on steep punch sections quite a bit better than either of those tires out back.

Good question! Here's what Deity sent me:

M4 x 0.7P x 8mm and they are dual sided for an allen, so you can unthread them from the back in the event that the pin is damaged. They also come with pre-applied Loctite and include an extra set of pins for back ups!
