I feel like Maxxis doesn't need more tread patterns. I JUST WANT A DH CASING AGGRESSOR WITH MAXXTERRA RUBBER.

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

Curious what maximum moto shaft speeds are. I have no idea.

has anyone *actually* checked unsprung weight of USD vs normal forks? Magnesium is pretty light...

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 »

Reply to Did I bust my Rockshox Deluxe rear shock? 9/5/2019 1:23 PM

you bent a set screw in the eyelet- shouldn't affect the performance at all provided you can still leave the lever in the correct locations for riding. (pointed down for open mode and 90 degrees for lockout) This was a common issue- the newer RL models ... more »

99% sure you can do that with a pike 150. buy 120 spring: https://www.worldwidecyclery.com/products/rockshox-debonair-spring-upgrade-kit-120mm-fits-pike-b1-revelation-a1-2018

Yeah- I can't stand the DH casing Maxxis- they only come with their sticky MaxxGrip rubber and roll SLOW. Great for lift/shuttle riding but I can't pedal them. DoubleDown usually comes with the faster rolling MaxxTerra rubber and seems a good compromise ... more »

Poor Jordi!

good lord Phil on that ebike. Wonder if he has to carry one of those tubeless seat/pressure bottles to reattach the bead on his rear wheel 6 times a ride?

Lady racer

I ran one of those for a season of bike park riding. Works awesome- especially for $20. I cut the 'tang' off the derailleur hanger and zip tied the main body of the alfine tensioner straight to the chainstay IE rotate yours another 45 degrees CCW and ... more »

Reply to The Internet Was Wrong: Short Chainstays Suck* 2/6/2019 2:10 PM

not sure why- it's easier to make a long chainstay/long travel bike. you get more seat & seattube clearance and the chainstay/chainring/tire clearance area is easier to solve. i ride a 445 reach bike so IDK

it's a Harley... you'll only ever see it parked outside a bar (ie not on the trails).

Good read from Phil Gaimon- I saw some video with him discussing the WADA list and how he would type every ingredient in food/supplement/vitamin into the list before using it. Tedious but part of the job. http://www.cyclingnews.com/features/phil-gaimon-what-does-it-mean-to-be-a-clean-bike-rider/ ... more »

Reply to EWS Doping Thread Disappearance 11/26/2018 9:50 AM

Probably should be doing a yearly check on ingredients vs WADA list if you are a pro athlete.

bummer for sure.

I have one- I got it to train with for enduro racing. I remove it off the bike for racing (it's heavy and fragile) and during the off-season (don't want to know how fat/weak I am haha). Features I'd like: -good battery life -consistent measurement/accuracy ... more »
