Added reply in a thread Deore HG rear hub interface slop? 11/26/2019 6:34 PM

I've never heard of this issue so I can't say a whole lot. The one thing I will say though is that there shouldn't be any play between the hub and the cassette (obviously). Generally, most hubs are specific to their cassette brand and don't need spacers ... more »

I've been riding the 100% RaceCraft goggles for about a year now in all weather conditions with no complaints. I also know Loic Bruni rides with the Armega's (also from 100%) so I'd imagine they're pretty reliable. They even have a little nose guard, ... more »

It's about 6 months old now. The damper is certainly working plus the compression and rebound adjustments are still working. I think it's just a matter of leverage ratio and huge hits. I'll look into it a little more though. Thanks.

Added reply in a thread Do you smoke? 11/12/2019 10:23 AM

As many would agree MTB is an "elite" and "extreme" sport, generally speaking most probably won't smoke/do drugs. It's a sport where people are constantly pushing themselves and others to their absolute max and having messed up lungs and a screwed brain ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why are so many "MTBers" A*holes when new things happen? 11/12/2019 10:19 AM

I do agree that some things like 27.5" vs. 29" is a very opinionated thing that people overreact about. That stuff is really preference; 27.5" is more trick oriented, 29" is more speed oriented. Although, on the topic of E-MTB that's a different story, ... more »

After maxing out the volume reducers and nearly eliminating sag by hugely adding air I still manage to bottom the DPX2 out. And considering I live just outside of Vancouver and frequently visit Whistler and Squamish, I have a reasonably decent idea of ... more »

Do ya happen to know where to find the SD progression graph? Preferably one with the MegNeg kit installed and volume spacers accounted for? I haven't been able to find it anywhere.

They may not advertise a bumpstop but there more than certainly is one. Within the last 10mm of travel it's rather noticeable. Maybe I'm just crazy but I don't see why else the last little bit would all the sudden take way more effort to slam down. I'm ... more »

I can say the DPX2 does have some pretty decent bottom out resistance, it's the ramp up that's the main concern. I can easily push the shock through its travel but then hit the bumpstop (or whatever it's called on an air shock) which is quite abrupt. ... more »

I've heard the Topaz has amazing small bump sensitivity, almost as good as a coil but I've also heard it can't handle big blows. Do you feel this is true or just tuning? I need it to be able to take huge blows while still maintaining a bottomless feel. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Help with used bike purchase 11/5/2019 10:26 AM

I can't really comment on the bikes as they're very dependent on preference and what you value. As for the geometry, don't underestimate it. After riding a Norco Shore for a few years and then switching to a Transition Patrol the difference is night ... more »

Started new thread What is the Best Air Shock? 11/5/2019 10:20 AM

I have a 2019 Patrol and am in big need of changing the stock DPX2 it comes with to something better suited for big hits. I've been tempted to go coil but decided to keep it air as I love the playfulness and adjust ability of them. What's the best air ... more »

POC has some amazing gear, super comfy, reasonably ventilated, good mobility. If your looking for protection their VPD 2.0 gear is the way to go as it's designed to protect more than anything. A full-face helmet with MIPs (especially the spherical version) ... more »

Added reply in a thread Three-Quarter Lids: Gimmick or Cool? 10/3/2019 12:08 PM

I personally don't see a huge advantage to a 3/4 lid, really they just cover your ears and a tin bit of your jaw. I think it makes more sense to go full out and buy a full-face and/or a half lid. If you want both but don't want to spend too much buy ... more »

It really all comes down to spending. Personally, I'd definitely go with the Orbea (better fork is a big deal plus I've always gone with SRAM drivetrain after a few Shimano issues that made me write them off). Good luck man

I haven't personally ridden any YT bikes but have never heard anything bad about them. The only downside they have is that they're direct to consumer, if you you're big on specs and know your geometry you should be fine though. Capra Vs. Jeffsy is really ... more »

The stabilization (from what I know) is simply done by recording in a larger frame size then placing the larger frame into a standard one and wiggling it around. You should be able to do this with any camera that can exceed the frame size you'd want ... more »

I'm not exactly a headset specialist but I have never once had a problem with any FSA headset. I have had them on three bikes now and even a scooter (but that was a long time ago) and they worked flawlessly.

Added reply in a thread Help! Tips for riding stops BC and Rockies. 2/17/2019 9:09 AM

If you want to do any street freestyle or urban downhill Vancouver is great for it. I'd recommend staying just outside of downtown though, as it's super busy down there and people tend to get annoyed if you're stunt riding.
