Added a comment about feature Marginal Gains: There’s Nothing *Stock* About Stock Suspension 10/22/2020 7:14 AM

PUSH Industries has been building and tuning my suspension for close to 15 years on my trail bikes. Every single time the fork and or shock comes back "feeling" and performing better than stock. This has translated to more fun on the trail and faster times on the clock. In addition to the tuning, PUSH provides setting recommendations which is super helpful. I believe that not only is the valving work PUSH does improving performance but also and probably equally an attention to the small details with quality seals, grease and fluids. Custom tuned suspension has always been a high value investment for me.

Awkward "gift" by the look on his face.

My clutch was totally dry, and notchy after a few months. There was no grease in there when I opened it up to service it. But no rust either like others have mentioned. I would check it even if it is new, to make sure it has grease or enough grease in there. Other than the dry clutch quirk, this is by far the smoothest shifting and best performing drivetrain from any manufacturer, ever. Well, at least in my 20 years of this sport. Shimano deserves a lot of credit for such a well refined system.

Do you thing it is worth lubing the clutch when new and before it's first ride to prevent the issue?

Liked a comment on the item Shimano XT 12-Speed Long-Term Review 8/2/2020 9:38 PM

yes. well known issue apparently. lubed it and set it a bit looser than it came stock and no problems since. otherwise i love the drivetrain.

Had the same experience. 5 minute service. Use the correct clutch grease. Running smooth and fine. Curiously dry to start though. Makes me wonder if the correct or grease, enough grease or any grease was on the clutch to begin with.

"Pie Plates are overrated"..says the guy in PA. I lived in Colorado for 10yrs up until a little over a month ago. Plenty of hour or longer climbs starting out at 6000ft that wide range gears come in handy. It's no different than having 2-3 speeds up front as far as range and MUCH simpler

I guess for me I see it less as a “failure” and more of a maintenance routine that the user needs to be aware of. It’s pretty easy to remove the cover and inject slick honey (I have a grease gun for slick honey left over from my old Turner frames) around the clutch pivot, cycle it a few times with...more

Love that Shimano are sticking with Micro Spline for the entry level group, instead of doing what SRAM did with the NX Eagle cassette (ditching XD driver and going with a reduced range cassette on the old Shimano style freehub driver). What this means is that there is...more

Not very earth-shattering at $65 dollars. If they were $40-50 that would be more newsworthy. When you have a boutique carbon FS bike, top of the line suspension and carbon hoops you usually don't lose any sleep if you spend 10-15 dollars more per tire. Not diminishing the performance of the...more
