No real suspension linkage on that bike; just a pivot at the bottom and the pivot bolt at the shock. Remove the bolts and use some grease to reassemble. There are probably bearings in the frame you may need to tap out and re-grease.

Added reply in a thread CNN Reports Rampage Athletes are 3,600 Feet in the Air 6/28/2022 1:27 PM

Anybody know what the elevation is at the top of Rampage? 3,600 feet sounds almost likely. EDIT: Hurricane is 3,248, LaVerkin is 3,192. Virgin shows 3,606. I think I figured it out!

This same question was raised in VitalMX. I said "no" at the time, but that's because I ride MX maybe once a month, and the fuel is only a small part of the expense. To ride MTB at my local trails is really only about 10 miles away, but to do it every ... more »

Then that shot angle must be working on me, too!

It sure looks to my eyes like he is kissing the last part of downhill with his rear tire, and flat at best with his front. Maybe it's simply because he soaks it up so well...
Added reply in a thread Can we please talk about Angel's insane huck to flat on the motorway? 6/14/2022 2:45 PM

Adrenaline, killer suspension, and the angle of the shot probably all contribute. I bet the spot where he landed was still at the very trailing end of the downhill portion of that feature. As long as he got his rear wheel on the ground early, it's more ... more »

Added reply in a thread EWS Coverage & the overall ROI for companies sponsoring enduro racers 6/7/2022 1:13 PM

Any kind of racing sponsorship is difficult to activate. If they can do it for DH, they can do it for Enduro as well. If anything, I think Enduro is more relatable to the average consumer anyway; we regular Joes can imagine riding a bike up to the top ... more »

Guys, it's all on you not to hit immovable objects, but it is also on the bike park facility to assume with reasonable certainly that riders can and will crash. Removing all potential problem spots may be impossible, but adding them, as in the rebar ... more »

^ Nic, can you run the watch by itself, without a phone paired to it? (Or with a paired phone left in the car, for instance?)

Added reply in a thread Help for newbies 3/29/2022 10:53 AM

Start with hardtails with a suspension fork. Upgrade to better full-sus bikes later, if you like the sport and can afford to do so. I'd recommend something like a Vitus or a Diamondback; great spec components, not too pricey. I'm sure you can find something ... more »

If I could afford it, Factory, all the time. I wouldn't be able to tell the difference, but Kashima Koat looks cool and just knowing that it works better for someone is good enough for me. Yeah, I'm that guy.

Cool bike, but that color. Ugh! It's like they hired a small team of experts and gave them $10,000 each to come up with the ugliest thing they could. This is the end result of their year-long mission to find perfection in that endeavor.

Added reply in a thread Trail vs Enduro What should I purchase? 1/28/2022 11:22 AM

Another vote for a trail bike. I personally own an enduro for my "do-it-all" bike, but I don't do much of the poppy, playful stuff. I prefer to smash the steep descents and have travel to soak up the gnar. I don't really care if my bike pedals with hyper ... more »
