Quick show of hands, who wants to go for a ride with the guys who has to turn his bike upside down on every climb? 80% of a full service in terms of what? Time, no. Materials, no. Set up/clean up, no. But like I said, you've clearly missed the point. ... more »

Every higher end Rockshox rear shock for the past 5 or 6 years, both air and coil. They call it 'countermeasure.'

Not all of us can store our bike upside down (right side up has other benefits particularly for the brakes, but that's another story), and how much oil flows past the bushing to the top of the fork, and how long it takes, depends from fork to fork and ... more »

Jeff Brines’ airing of grievances?

I've noticed a few quick shots on social media the past few weeks of what looked to be a new Maxxis spike tire, but couldn't tell for sure. Here's a better

Hope I’m not setting anyone up for disappointment. It’s nothing special, just something you might not have thought of to get close to a freshly serviced feel after a few hard rides. Definitely not a replacement for the real thing. Spomer has the video, ... more »

Those are the power and start/stop buttons for his Stendec DAQ logger.

Maybe I should make a video of my 'lazy man's fork service.' Takes under two minutes (5 min for the extended version) and keeps the fork feeling mint in between standard service intervals. I've picked up a few suspension and brake setup trick over the ... more »

Same reason we see bags of dried fruit labeled vegan and gluten free. I had a good laugh with a product manager for a tire company a few years ago when I asked if he had anything new and his answer was 'an ebike specific hotpatch.' Same tires, but with ... more »

You guys can argue the benefits/marketing of 2mm if you want, I'm more interested what's going on inside. Won't repeat what I was told, but I had a bounce on one last year and breakaway friction was ridiculously low. Like one finger on the bar was enough ... more »

That was because inverted forks are far less stiff to start with. I very much doubt they would be unable to design a conventional 38mm DH fork that that wasn't at least as stiff as a 38mm Ohlins or 35mm Boxxer. I also doubt we'll see it happen though. ... more »

Reply to 2020 MTB Tech Rumors and Innovation 2/15/2020 12:30 AM

air bleed ports, axel pinch bolts, and a more elliptical shaped arch are visually the most obvious changes. Can't share what I've been told about the internals, but the one I pushed up and down on last year had by far the lowest friction of any fork ... more »

Definitely something new, let's hope it hasn't been nixed along with their non-xc racing program. The Fox fork/shock look pretty standard though.

If you’ve been following the social media feed from Trek team camp you might have noticed Florian’s fork doesn’t seem to have Lyrik graphics on it. It’s also conspicuously cropped out of all the team launch photos that recently went live. Have to assume ... more »

That pic could be from a couple years ago during a training trip to SoCal or a visit to 100%. That's Canyon's Carlsbad, CA office and the bike you can make out looks like its just on display in the lobby.

New colors for Hazzard Racing and a new coil shock from Formula (word is more info coming on April 23)
