Hi,

the body of the 150-mm travel post we tested is 255 mm long, from the top of the seal head to the bottom of the post body. Add about 18 mm for the quick connect thing. Note that if the bulge in the seat tube is severe enough, you will need to allow for a little more room than the absolute minimum though, you can only bend a gear cable so much.

Started new thread MTB Ban Implemented Based on Strava Speeds 5/5/2016 3:03 AM

The city of Los Altos, CA has implemented a ban on mountain bikes in the Byrne Reserve following complaints by other user groups. It seems that speeds recorded on Strava helped the council reach its decision: “I’m done with this as far as I’m concerned,” Councilman John Radford said. “The speed numbers

Added a new video Swatch Rocket Air 2016 - Top 3 Runs & Results 5/1/2016 11:29 AM
C138x104

What an end to the 7th annual Swatch Rocket Air. After the Teambattle on Friday, the riders had to fight for FMB world tour points in the final. The winner of the Swatch Rocket Air 2016 was American, Nicholi Rogatkin. Many exciting side events completed the show and made it to a spectacular adventure into the jungle of Thun.

Rogatkin Wins Final

The atmosphere at the ice rink of Thun was ecstatic. In a sold out arena, riders brought their best tricks and impressed the audience with spectacular runs. The winner of the final was last years second place, Nicholi Rogatkin. His first run featured difficult tricks such as a cork 720 and a triple tailwhip, topped off with a lot of his own unique style. With this remarkable run, Rogatkin convinced the judges and brought the audience to their feet. Although Rogatkin’s victory was set before his second run, he completed half the course and preformed his famous trick, the twister. The winner not only won mentionable price money but also critical points for the Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour (FMB). Thanks to the Swatch Rocket Air now being a Gold Event, the points will now also count towards the Diamond Series. With a super high cork 720, the Swedish rider, Max Fredriksson landed himself in second place. The Italian rider, Diego Caverzasi showed one of his best runs here at the Swatch Rocket Air and received third.

2016 Swatch Rocket Air Results

A Weekend of World Champions

Once again the Swatch Rocket Air was a huge success. Not deterred by the bad weather on Saturday, a record number of over 9,000 people visited the Swatch Rocket Air and helped create an awesome atmosphere. When the riders weren’t hitting the big jumps inside, there was still plenty to see outside. The world champion of BMX, Viki Gomez put together a spectacular show and impressed visitors. Noël Niederberger broke the world record of the Pumptrack World Series by riding the track in 7.206 sec. It is safe to say the organizers out did themselves, adding even more to the event line up and put a smile on many faces.

Added reply in a thread Wrenches / Shop Employees, What's Your Biggest Pet Peeve? 4/30/2016 2:19 AM

Well I don't work in a shop, but I do a lot of wrenching, and here's my word of warning to anybody with a well-equipped workshop and the know-how to fix bikes: don't tell the neighbors.
