I've only been using mine for a month or so, but it shattered my previous expectations of what a good hub was. Any pawl system now feels cheap.

The only high pivot bike(s) I have ridden were the Balfa BB7. I owned 4 of them. Back then, they worked better than most designs, and as advertised. Square edged hits all but disappeared even with the shitty shock technology we had 15 years ago. The ... more »

Totally. Its simple, just look at the legs. On a moto, the rider can go from nearly straight legs to a full 90 degree bend at the knee. Its a huge margin. And I can tell you when they're standing they're usually on the gas. On a mountain bike, we are ... more »

Until you've ridden or raced a moto, you wouldn't understand. The rider input and positioning are different on a moto, as I said earlier. You steer a lot through your rear wheel and that means you are seated a lot of the time. The position is usually ... more »

Yesterday for experimentation purposes, I angled my levers pointing down about 10-15 degrees (still not flat) and went for a ride. Brutal. For the reason Diedre_Rashid said - way too uncomfortable and unnatural.

That's a good point about the hand guards and the bar height of a dirtbike. No engine braking on a two stroke and a Rekluse clutch!

hahaha yup! A bar that feels too flat makes me feel like I'm holding onto a frown. Then I get sad and want to kill myself. If grips are warn, the bike could be mint, but I couldn't ride it. Lever throw has to be super short and engage close to the bar. ... more »

I get that people like it and it works for them, but to me it feels like I have rocks in my shoes hahahaha I also don't like the feeling of a bar being rolled back into my lap, and flat levers give this effect. I'm very fussy over my cockpit set up. ... more »

Well, in mx racing the levers are usually run to accompany the seated riding position. So much of the steering and handling of the bike is done through the back wheel, so the body position tends to be back a little further than on an mtb. Remember a ... more »
