Hum...I never hear stories of punters going thru 4-6 alloy rims over a race weekend....I get what you are saying and it certainly applies to things like hack shifting, but talk with some WC mechanics about rim consumption on rocky tracks over a race ... more »

Because punters put wheels thru the rigors of top WC racers, right? At this point those e*thirteen rims under Gwin for so many years with no issues are looking pretty good.

Content creation is not what it used to be for young, white, tatted-up bro's riding bikes. Too many of those guys all doing the same thing. It's diluted and tired. The 'gram is all boomers now. Do you even tiktok bro?

Considering costs of fielding a race team and impacts of instafuencers on marketing budgets it's gotta be hard for racers that are not at the pointy end of the stick. Esp in DH with limited riders being shown on redbull.tv. Im a huge fan of Moir and ... more »

Cam is awesome as always. Lets be honest...at this point fox, marzocchi and race face are all the same thing. This isint your dads DH3/Z1/Z2 Zokes....it's the watered down millennial marketing based version of the brand. Open bath what? Open bath who? Sucka...that's you.

WHY ARE YOU PEDALING BACKWARDS?

Been using this cassette with Shimano XT 12 speed shifter and derailleur and a KMC chain and it works great. My hub didn't have a Microspline freehub available, and I didn't want to buy a whole new rear wheel, so this solution was perfect. It's also a nice chunk lighter...more

The CST produced tires you referred to earlier are not really "rebranded" in the sense that CST is just selling a finished tire and companies are putting their logo on them. In all those cases companies use CST as their tire manufacturer and work with them to spec casing/compounds and generally spec their own tread profile.

Hi Tristan, thanks for the question. We are a privately owned tire maker formed in 1977 with our own rubber plantation and production factory. Every aspect of our manufacturing process, from engineering to design to final production is done in our own factory in Thailand. We even...more

CST owns and controls Maxxis. The first gen e13 tires were made at CST but current ones are not. As I understand Spech and trek are no longer made there either. Vee owns the factory and also produces tires for several other brands.

Stoked! The OG pedals were stickier than the stickiest icky. New pins are similar so these should be sweet.
