sidewall stability is probably my biggest complaint with the narrower rims. I had a hard time finding a pressure that let the tire deform properly at the contact patch, while not feeding back from the rear wheel in even shallow turns. I could probably find a pressure that works, but my frame actually will work with the full size rims front & back, so I'm more inclined to throw 29er wheels back on until I can build a scraper rear wheel to go with the front(provided I like how it rides better with the scraper, which I at least have one wheel to test with.)

Built my wheelset last week, took it out for a first ride this weekend. First impresion: While WTB claims you can run the trailblazer all the way down to 23mm IW rims, I was not very pleased with how they rode on Flow EXs. Got a front wheel built with a scrapper this week, haven't had a chance to ride it yet.

Made my 29er hardtail feel like a 26, speed wise, but not fat bike sluggish.

Ugh, those sometimes don't play so nice with outboard bearings. probably helps a little with chainstay length though.

Tenneco is an american company, and indeed they have been battling bankruptcy for years now. It is not a surprise. Perhaps it is a blessing in disguise for Marzocchi.

Marzocchis fame and quality went to the ground the year Tenneco bought Marzocchi USA.

I seriously doubt Marzocchi Italy will close.

Even if Tenneco crashes & burns, & this actually affects the MTB division(which isn't likely, from what's been said elsewhere) there's too much value in the brand for someone else to not pick it up(not to mention other assets like existing designs, inventory, etc.) Hey, people have been saying for years that Shimano needs to at least be a majority shareholder in a suspension manufacturer, in order to combat the OEM deals SRAM works with manufacturers due to Rock Shox, maybe they'll take an interest.

Please at least try and contact a company before posting this sort of thing. The same story has been floated about elsewhere and I'm fairly sure Marzo have said its just their moto range and the mtb side will be unaffected. The last thing they need is for unconfirmed rumours just as the mtb side is...more

Love it! But, how does Palmer shift? Yell at the derailleur?

Wow, I actually really like that narrow cross-section top tube, looks very svelte.

I'm actually hoping it will be far simpler: I'm hoping a standard 1/4" compression fitting will seal to standard tubeless valve, with the compression olive removed. If that doesn't work, I've got some botranger tubeless valves that have a smooth shaft ... more »

So I'm working on a parts list to do this with about 10 dollars of brass pipe, to get a nice, clean device (possibly figure out a way to attach a presta to brass pipe, as well. waiting on parts to test.) But I got to thinking today: what about a paintball ... more »

There's some differences in upper construction as well, looks more like the impact VXis. I'd just like them to not crack on the side of the upper within a week of owning them, my biggest complaint about Impact 2s. I liked the original model better.

Been looking for a clean storage solution for tube + inflator for my new hardtail. I'll be buying one of these when they come out, unless my plans for a solution that bolts to the unused direct mount turns out better.

This vid is perfect evidence of how "commitment" is the most important riding skill you can posses.

These seem pretty good, but not $50 more than a set of LG1s good. Glad to hear you can use a standard bolt for the trapdoor, as the flat pins in the middle have been a standout feature for my LG1s, & they you're right to say they should include some blank pins.. Add the fact I can make my LG1s look new for $15 bucks & these make the most sense for people who get a deal on them with a new bike, which is probably the intention in the first place, rather than 3rd party sales.
