Indeed, Syndicate have always been generous with trolling you guys, this is some sort of kudos for figuring it all out already. Nice work, especially the photoshops...

Agree, 30T makes more sense for someone new to MTB, and most people will tell you NX is rubbish, at least the derailleur. The b-tension screw/interface is garbage and ends up all sloppy. Trek I'd say is more widely supported by LBS if you have a problem ... more »

Far be it from me to know the ins and outs of it all let alone someone's head, but there was a definite team chemistry in the original IFR guys. They were having a good time and doing well. It seems Jack had another year so they kept him around when ... more »

If you go back to the Paul Aston bike check, he uses spherical bearings with his EXT shock, but he also states that it's only suitable or beneficial for certain setups. Linky link

I've been considering the GX ASX upgrade kit, and I'm one of those people with boxes of old Shimano stuff that still works perfectly. My last XT 12 speed derailleur failed like this. Middle of a berm, not sure what happened but just snapped. There really
