Hi Aaron- can you pass on the need for a 2.5" Aggressor DH Casing- with non Maxx Grip rubber (either Dual or MaxxTerra)... Enduro bikes need the casing on the rear wheel but without the slow rolling rubber.

Great interview and love the product! Thanks.

Same here- bacons always push out/skid out after a while- I use them to get home or to the car then fix more permanently when in the garage. Was also going to buy a Stans Dart someday but maybe not now... I cut a thin strip of rag (towel is best), tie ... more »

Been super curious about the Eddy Current tires... How long are they lasting? Reno conditions- dry/rocks? What ones did you get? They have 2.4, 2.6, 2.8 options?

Something else to think about- if 1/2 of DH bikes are going to rental fleets- why do the renters have to deal with WC winning geometry? How about this 'rental' spec DH bike with geometry more friendly for a family from Iowa to cruise the green runs on? ... more »

Loïc over the stumps was bananas. For anyone who doesn’t speak French, the quote from the dude immediately following is: ‘Go bring a bottle of champagne to Öhlins. And say thank you. Motherfu....’

I just wanted to stop talking about theoretical maths and bolt one on the bike and ride it. I didn't do any real calculations or anything- I understand the basics of the math but I'm not going to try and figure out natural frequencies of a DH casing ... more »

I think you'd end up with a super a heavy mass to resist pedal bob (low acceleration/velocities). The one I made (above on a home-made DH bike) couldn't tell it was mounted on the bike in the parking lot bounce test. As soon as you ran into a curb or ... more »

Adds a lot of harshness, no perceivable benefit for off road bicycles:

Magic Mary is your front tire- always all conditions. Hans Dampf is an OK rear tire, rolls fast, good braking, good climbing but not so good cornering. I haven't run a Big Betty- but they just redid that one and it looks like it's supposed to be the rear to match with a Magic Mary on the front.

yeah it should. I've run 5 Schwalbe SuperGravity (older version casing) tires down to nothing. Zero flats. Same bikes/wheels I've flatted 4-5 Maxxis Double Downs with and without cushcore. I'm done with Maxxis DD.

cool. I'd love to see slightly heavier/downspec (no carbon anything) Ebikes with huge batteries (800+ w/h). I want to have bigger range and ability to run turbo mode most of the time. I've ridden one once and ended up using eco mode and not having a lot of fun. Barely went further than I could have pedaled on a light trail bike.

Roughly how much climbing (vertical) are you guys getting out of these before the battery dies? 5,000?
