Syncros sells a zero loss pump for the truly paranoid.

If you don't unscrew the pump fast enough you do lose air or if the screw is longer. Airing up my DVO Jade is a nightmare because of this. I'll put in 200psi and then when I check it again it'll be 185psi!

The weight difference between a 15mm and 20mm axle isn't significant the difference in stiffness is. Why settle for less?

Why do you want a DH bike with a single crown that can pedal up singletrack? A dual crown fork is so much better. It is worth the extra weight. I have a Dorado set at 180mm on my 176mm trail bike and it is easily the best fork I have ever had!

Lol, so true!

200mm travel "enduro"/trail bikes would be a great thing for rougher terrain. Nicolai allow you to customize their G1 to have more travel if you want it. Paul Aston has big wheeled 200mm G1 and loves it! https://www.instagram.com/astonmtb/ I do agree ... more »

I used to run Schwalbe Magic Mary front and back. Great all around tyres. Then last year I got some Maxxis Assegai and find they out corner the Magic Mary. They are less of an all around tyre because they tend to pack up more easily unless you cut the ... more »

Another yawn fork from Fox...a Dual crown version would be more interesting! Would be nice to see some real innovation from FOX and ROCKSHOX without them being scared of weight restrictions and with some proper service intervals eg +200hours. I am way ... more »

I have done it a bunch of times with a friend who has an ebike. If you pedal along with the ebiker it goes much better and faster. We use two inner tubes attached together for length and the elasticity. One on the seatpost and the other over the stem. ... more »

I would like to see more breathable 3/4 helmets that have that trials motorcycle helmets style.

I'd recommend the L for your height. You will have to change the way you ride from off the back to in the middle to slightly on the front to get the most of this bike. I'm 1.8m/5'11" and have an L with a +1º headset thus giving me 520mm of reach. I recently tested an XL geometron (535mm reach) and liked it even better!

Added a comment about feature Only Nine Speeds. Is Simpler Better? BOX Launches Prime 9 Drivetrain 9/3/2019 12:10 PM

I don't mine getting a box chain. What I want to know if I can use that cassette with my GX 11 speed shifter with my NX derailleur limited to 9 gears (since the cassette is narrower)? I find that where I live 11 speeds have too many redundant gears.

Is the spacing between cogs the same as 11 speed? I want to know to see if I can run my sram 11 speed deraileur and shifter and just change the chain?

Minnaar's bike is only big compared to the rest of the WC field. It still looks small for Minaar. He runs a XXL with +8mm a reachset so reach is 500mm. He can easily add another 30-40mm reach no problem. His bike looks better on Amaury then his Commencal ... more »
