Falcon and I are both from the moto-world/vitalmx crew too Lol I asked this question earlier this year when I got bit by the bug. I had some great suggestions, and wanted to buy the Canyon Spectral or YT Jeffsy after reading the replies. But the problem ... more »

Which Guides were you using? I have the RSCs and thought about switching to Magura MT7s. I’ve had pistons stick twice to where it almost had my front wheel locked up but seems okay now. It sounds like it rubs sometimes and then goes away again tho

Could you tell a big difference with the Diaz Runt?

Reply to Best Or Worst Bike Mods and Riding Accessories 10/15/2020 4:09 PM

Interesting, did you have to use an app to get it setup? How’s the battery life and charging work?

Reply to Best Or Worst Bike Mods and Riding Accessories 9/25/2020 12:11 PM

I’ve heard good things about Magura. I have the Guide RS on my SB5.5 and I’m not completely sold on them, but I think it’s because the pistons have given me trouble twice That’s surprising because the Assegai looks very aggressive, I never would have ... more »

I didn’t know about those-that definitely looks like something I’d like to try now. I’m going to look more into that!

New thread Best Or Worst Bike Mods and Riding Accessories 9/25/2020 1:11 AM

What’s been your favorite mods and/or riding accessories and what’s been a let down? Anything you’re wanting to try? My Ergon GE1 grips have a slight bump at the index finger that helps me pitch the bike easier, and I rarely use gloves with them I bought ... more »

Nice, did you change the tooth size from what you were running with the round chainring?

Reply to Absolute Black OVAL Chainring 9/21/2020 11:43 AM

Is anyone else out there running the absoluteblack oval chainrings? I’m considering giving it a try but wondering if it’s worth it for my SB5.5

New thread How do you clean/lube your chain? 9/8/2020 12:38 AM

Just wanted to see what you guys prefer to do when prepping your chain? I’ve been hitting mine with brake cleaner and a toothbrush, then using a DuPont spray wax with Teflon. Seems to work okay without attracting too much dirt and dust, but curious to ... more »

Forky lol
Reply to Do you say fork or forks? 6/4/2020 7:22 PM

I say both depending on context. “I have a Fox fork” “I adjusted my forks today” Lol

Reply to Tubeless Wheel Issues 5/22/2020 11:59 PM

Tbh, I don’t know the width but they are not very wide. The tape covered from rim-wall to rim-wall so I think it wasn’t an issue They local bike shop was able to get them setup tubeless and I didn’t even think to ask about it! Already got one ride on ... more »

Reply to Tubeless Wheel Issues 5/19/2020 3:48 PM

Well I dropped my bike off at the local shop yesterday to freshen it up and asked them to set up the tires Rode the hardtail yesterday and my buddy got a big thorn in his tire (which sealed because he’s tubeless). Hopefully they get it figured out because ... more »

Reply to Tubeless Wheel Issues 5/18/2020 7:38 PM

I just dipped a toothbrush in some alcohol and scrubbed the whole channel from wall to wall. It definitely wasn’t saturated enough to come thru the spokes, but it’s a valid thought! I mounted the tires the next day so it was definitely dry. We never ... more »

Reply to Tubeless Wheel Issues 5/17/2020 3:58 PM

Ha thanks man, I appreciate it..it would be very frustrating except that my neighbor and I both like to tinker around the garage. The original tires had sealant gummed all over the bead and we scrubbed them for maybe 45min and the tires had leaks all ... more »

Reply to Tubeless Wheel Issues 5/17/2020 2:47 PM

I might try that. I’m thinking about double wrapping the gorilla tape first tho since I have plenty of it. The local bike shop told me they always do 2 wraps

Reply to Tubeless Wheel Issues 5/15/2020 10:36 PM

Interesting. I did put a piece of gorilla tape over one of the leaking spikes and it still leaked. I cut a very small “X” in the hole to get the tip of the valve in, and then pressed it thru snuggly. Here’s the valves. I’m not sure how deep ... more »
Reply to Tubeless Wheel Issues 5/15/2020 10:02 AM

The rim bed was as clean as I could get it for sure. I used 1” wide gorilla tape as pictured in response to Big Bird. The rim looks to be in good condition, but they are second hand. The previous owner’s care was questionable tho after seeing Flubber ... more »

Reply to Tubeless Wheel Issues 5/15/2020 9:49 AM

That is very understandable considering the tape texture, but we didn’t really muscle the tire. I put new tubes and the old tires back on yesterday and the tape looked good (although obviously leaking)
