Of course this depends on what you're upgrading from but assuming that you've got a entry to mid-range bike I would say: 1. Brakes - good reliable stoppers which have enough power and some modulation will improve any riders experience on a bike and their ... more »

And then for an encore I touched the brake rotor with my bare hand and laid the bike down on the drive side. The horror!

Added a comment about product review The Greatest Hope for Gearboxes - Zerode Taniwha Reviewed 5/22/2018 11:17 AM

Really appreciate the thoroughness of this review and providing an alternative perspective to Mike Levy's somewhat dismissive opinion of the bike and gearboxes generally on PB.

I have seen some pretty great builds here in Rotorua and some are definitely getting quite light (One I know is around the 14.5kg mark with a Push coil shock).

The suspension performance is pretty amazing on these bikes and certainly puts the bike in a class that is a lot better than just "good".

I guess the takeaways are that Pinion gearboxes have quite low POE so you need to run a really pricey hub to counter the low engagement. I have also seen other pinions seeping oil, so this is obviously a common occurance and perhaps the 10,000km service interval is overreaching somewhat. It also seems like the tensioner is still a bit crude and needs refinement.

What I would say is that in my limited experience with the bike they seem ideal for a weekend warrior like myself, who digs the tech natural trails and doesn't mind grinding up the fire roads.

If my budget doubled overnight and they started making them in aluminium I'd be totally all over it.

Oh, and its pronounced Tani-fa not ta-Nefa.
