The whole cycling world didn't move to presta, BMX and many commuter bikes are schrader. So just roadies really, and mountain bikers were dumb enough to follow them. I would gladly buy a new inflator and pump head if the industry changed over.

I still don’t see how this is in anyway as good as a schrader valve. Pop the valve out of a schrader and you have a huge tide to put sealant down. And they’re cheap as chips.

We just need someone to make them in fancy colours.

I believe a commenter on PB said just call them...more

Good looking solution, but still inferior to schrader. Why is the bike industry trying so hard to reinvent the wheel?

Rad looking bike. Is it really a 2.8 rear tire or is that a typo? Rare to see a wider tire in the back than front but with the mullet I guess contact patch might be similar. Interesting choice though.

Added reply in a thread Which grease is best: FETT 2000, Motorex or PM600? 2/4/2021 12:37 PM

I've always just bought automotive grease, like Lucas Red and Tacky, for bearings and general assembly and then Sram butter for fork assembly and the such. Never really thought much about it, What's the advantage of PM600 and these others?

Hey all, I posted this question over in the PB mechanics thread but thought I'd throw it on here too. So I was selling a used bike and I measured the chain the way I learned to do it decades ago with a ruler. I got 3/32 of stretch in a foot. The guideline ... more »

Right on, you'll definitely be way happier with a 36 or something a step or two up from a Sector, I rode one briefly and it felt pretty bad. Also, although you don't need to necessarily spend over 5k if you have the money to spend buy what makes you ... more »

Avalanche damper kit. I've had one in my coil sprung boxxer for a few years now and it's amazing, Whistler bike park washboard is nearly nonexistent, all I feel is a gentle vibration. I just put one in my Lyrik with the hybrid coil and the FvAT/HSB valve. ... more »

TEAMROBOT has some good advice there about how much you really need to spend. Additionally don't get too hung up on the Fox vs Rockshox or the Sram vs. Shimano thing, especially with the suspension. Both companies are comparable in performance and although ... more »
