Don't know about Semenuk but I noticed that Kyle Strait was running old code levers so I wouldn't be surprise. Now the question is why.

Basically throwing a Shimano lever on any brake running mineral oil and it will give extra power and less modulation. This is due to the servowave cams that multiply the force applied from the lever to the master cylinder piston. More pressure, more ... more »

Considering the buttercups as basic Silentblocs changes a little bit my view on them but: - a coil spring isn't 100% unsprung mass, somewhere between 50 to 100% in a fork application with no definite answer to this question. But yes it is more even with ... more »

Pretty solid argumentation to defend your point of vieW, definitely helpful post. Keep it coming champ.

Yes all of this, bar the casing since paper thin casing for what I ride isn't suitable performance and durability vise, add Ti disc and caliper bolts which help and have not cons. And I not counting grams, only where it matters so unsprung and/or rotational ... more »

Yeah because who gives a sh** about unsprung mass after all ?

Recent or not it is more the HP design that matters. I owned a Suprem V4 which was great at ironing stuff but terrible when turns were tight and dangerous in case of strong g-outs, bottoming out, traits exacerbated as the steepness increased. After that ... more »

You explanation about frame size is exactly what Jack explained in his VLogs when he decided to race 2021 with the Strive rather than the Spectral and the smaller frame rather than the bigger frame.

Well current as in MY21 and previous. The new carbon+iddler is MY22 so next year model even tho it has been revealed and even started being delivered in places. As for the use in current shocks it definitely would be too small a bearing but companies ... more »

I'd be interested to know. Considering for exemple that GT release both current Force and Fury with Trunion but that the new Force Carbon is back to normal bushing I'd say it doesn't make Trunion look good and seem to confirm the problems with side loading. ... more »

Yes this happened to me several times but I usually catch it before it becomes too bad, usually you get a knocking one it starts backing-off. Pretty annoying to say the least. As for sideways mounts, sure it can help but it would still be a rather complex ... more »

Well an Audi shares the same chassis and many running components with VW and Seat and Skoda. They get a different tune, outside look and finish but at heart they are the same and only none car people would say otherwise. Sure the top of the line RS has an engine that is not shared but that's 1% of the Audi that are sold and so is vastly irrelevant.

Your analogy doesn't prove what you think it does. Cheng Shin wholly owns Maxxis, just like Toyota owns Lexus, Honda owns Acura, VW owns Audi and so on. These sub-brands are created (not acquired) by the parent company to access a specific market. They leverage shared...more

I hope not, I'd like to see him win again. Orbea has heen the EWS team where lead riders go and ruin their carreer. Lapeyrie, now Otton, good luck ! Also considering Maes like to go DH every now and then, riding with Orbea would mean that wouldn't be ... more »

The slow rebound rubber rather than stupidly soft has been preached by Michelin for at least 5 years, probably a bit more. If these work like Michelins I have no trouble imagine that they work well and wear well. Also a DH casing coming in at ~1300g in 29" isn't really a DH casing, most top DH tires are more around 1400-1500g in 29" these days.

Or maybe it is simply a matter of time ? Few years back Commencal were the only ones with HP in DH, now look at how many bikes are HP on the circuit. Consider that so far there is only 4 brands offering HP enduro bikes, with only GT having some chances ... more »

No shit ?! I though brands like Moustache shut down their factory for the craic ... Whatever the reason, like I said they didn't bother retaking the pictures with the proper specs. Maybe one day they will shoot the product page/catalog picture with the ... more »

And GT didn't bothered doing bike shots with the proper specs. The Elite version has been shot with Shim package but will be sold with rubbish ... sorry I mean Sram package.
