I don't know enough about their rubber compounds- where does 'dual compound' sit on the scale? Only thing I understand anymore is MaxxGrip, Maxxterra, MaxxSpeed. Those make sense to me. MaxxSpeed is sick because they don't wear out but you'll die if ... more »

I can execute air can and fork lowers 50h service on a 'normal' garage workbench in about 1 hour. You'd certainly need to practice a few times to get good at it, but it doesn't seem out of reach for an enthusiast to do a few services each season. Check

Who thought it is a good idea to use 50 shades of grey and Orange/More Orange/Kinda Red colours for those graph lines? :D

I'd recommend using the uh recommended fluids for whatever suspension you have. We do seal compatibility testing with the fluids and can only guarantee the stock fluid won't swell or shrink the seals. Different suspension fluids from the same company ... more »

With everyone making the same tires and there being so many competitors, why haven't we seen the cost of tires come down to a reasonable amount for what the product actually is? Have tire companies formed like an OPEC like organization to keep prices high?
