"why keep going back if there’s an issue, if it’s not sealing?" agreed, which is why I'm done with their product. Spent literally a week retaping a rim, adding sealant, & coming back to a flat tire an hour later. air was always escaping somewhere from the rim. finally dumped the orange seal, put in stans, boom done. their sealant seems to work fine for tire punctures, but if you've got a leak in your rim tape or valvestem, you're screwed. & I, for one, do not do a perfect job on that every time, & a tight fitting tire will often abrade the tape enough when it's going on to put make it leak slightly.

Actually ran into a guy at the trailhead yesterday, got his bike off the rack, realized he had a flat front tire. messes with it, realized the air is coming through the valve hole. deflates the tire to pull it off, & what do I see? orange seal.

Purple Extreme. funny it wasn't tested. even funnier that at least half the lubes tested (& maybe 3/4 depending on which finish line product they actually used) aren't chain lubes at all.

having built one of those wheels, spoke windup was actually worse. there was no way to move the spoke at the hub, just at the end near the rim. which means the force from your wrench was having to travel along the entire spoke to get to the threads.

That was my take as well. Troll or not, that heatsink is probably doing absolutely nothing.

probably from North/Southbridge or onboard-graphics of a mainboard. But when I see the SC-Vids about Minnaar and Doughie talking about their bike-setup this could very well be a troll attempt for the gear-queer. I mean the...more

Covers over the internal routing ports... Whose bike, & did they jerry rig external routing, or just not have it assembled yet?

that linkage almost looks like it could be a plastic composite... which might be durable & light enough to be a good idea.

Don't have any pics of it built up, but this bad mamma jamma. I actually contacted the dude I sold it to back in 2012 a few months ago, but he had passed it on a year later. Objectively know what I'm on now is just as capable, or probably more so(Carbon

Like iceman says, he's riding for Hope. Since Hope doesn't have ties to a suspension company, & Adam doesn't have a secondary suspension sponsor, it's basically up to him what to spend the money hope gives him on.

If I was on a independent race team, & the budget supported it, I'd be on Ohlins too.

You mentioned that you ran them on different tire widths, but didn't mention how they performed(other than to note slightly less tire rub on the wide rim.)

Did the tire ride well on narrower rims, or does the profile get so curved that you can't find the side knobs?

Dang, they really need to work on their branding, I wondered about that stem, but it doesn't really say it does Di2 anywhere in the description or name.

I'm insanely curious about wire routing, does it run out of the top through that little arrow in the pic, then back down into the stem? Post some pics when you get in installed!

Gotcha. wasn't sure if it would have enough space with a dropper, or wondering if it might rattle, but sounds like it's been problem free. Although, I am hoping they come out with a PRO stem like the tharsis, but in AM lengths, putting the battery in the steerer seems like a great solution, especially for charging.

Although, I am very tempted by that "split pivot socket" top cap Salsa released at the same time as the Redpoint. I'm on a big kick to get tools off my back & onto the bike. thinking about building a custom framebag for the small area in front of the shock, to hold multitool, pump, & tube.

Y'know, I'm slightly over the blacked out bike look, but these seem to transcend that. That detail pic with the carbon pattern on the inside of the tubes, but black on the rest is stunning. Really good design there Cesar, good luck with your new company.
