I've tried a number of different shock configurations on a number of different bikes. The idea that the Super Deluxe is somehow a bad air shock is a bit of a misnomer. What the Super Deluxe does lack is the tunability of a Float X2, but in outright performance, I'd say its right up there with the best...more

I've held off for so long on making a stance with the mixed wheel thing, I really wanted to ride a number of bikes before drawing any conclusions. But, here it (kind of) goes - if you're looking for a larger wheel experience like what 29ers offer but are not of large stature, the mixed-wheel is all...more

How much is the socket that is potentially changed with each new release of the axle diameter standard? Plus the ratchet to put the socket on?

As for pressfit tools, it's 22 USD for a headsetpress that works as a BB press too (tried it out for both cases,...more

Technically (when done correctly, tolerance-wise), PF beats threaded BBs. Conceptually they have a ton of advantages and not many disadvantages.

I'm with you and TR and agree press fit sucks relative to threads, but I'd still ride one. Its not THAT big of a deal. Don't forget, MOST bearings are press fit on your bike, car, motorcycle etc. Example: I've swapped bearings on an old rear hub probably 6...more

There is no way that this bike put up with two months of hard use at the bike park without issue (no bike would). Come on spill the dirt...

This is awesome. Interested to know why you didn't stick with the double crown fork though (since many people seem to be experimenting with them for enduro now)

So when are you going to Mullet the Rise to 160/160 travel? It just takes a 8.5x2.5” (216x63) shock with 1 offset bushing in place of the 210x55 and a $50 160mm air spring

Having ridden 3 of these, one with Fox Float X2, this bike and one with DPX2, the rear feels incredibly plush (much better than my Enduro bike). Absolutely no compliance issues. The bike is a dream to ride and you feel comfortable on it after just one corner. Quick too!
