I've found that there is generally only one length of chain that works with 12 speed drivetrains. Add or subtract a link and it won't work at one end of the cassette. 50 tooth sprockets are objectively huge and it's hard to take up that much slack. I ... more »

That must have been on my Gen 2 then. I went through three Super 8's total. I still have the last one in the shed, built as ridden for a 41 mile single speed race with a homemade expansion seat post and customized MRP chain guide / chain tensioner.

Maxxis charges too much and MaxxGrip wears too quickly... I like a harder compound for the rear tire. MaxTerra not in DH casing. Assguy MG up front all day long.

Good to have a nice inch lb torque wrench, but not necessary if you have a decent feel for what like 7 inch lbs feels like. You can check out the install instructions on push's website, there are pictures and stuff. The hardest part was finding enough ... more »

Yep, took about an hour and a half and it was the first time I ever took a charger 2 apart, but I have rebuilt a few of the older charger dampers. Good instructions, only shims you need to mess with are on the rebound piston, and there are like 4 total ... more »

Older debonair spring is not bad, people used to pay Vorsprung good money to give their forks a couple mm of static sag. Charger 2 lets these forks down more than anything, charger 2.1 is an improvement, but still needs to be oversprung to prevent dive. ... more »

You could probably solve the sag issue from the old spring by packing grease on the negative side of the piston.

I have been back to back testing the soft compound DD 2.5 dhf with the magi-x michelin front and I like the michelin better, I am used to it though. Maybe I would have stuck with maxxis if DD wasnt such a farce, DH weight with trail puncturablility, at least in my experience ( I have destroyed 2 DD DHR 2s first or second ride). Michelins at least dont puncture constantly.

The 1x reverb remote is actually super nice and they can be sourced 2nd hand for like 30$. Buttery smooth hydraulic action, makes the post return super fast too.

Double taping was beneficial with some rim/tire combos a few years ago, just to remedy a loose bead and get the tire to air up the first time. It really isn't necessary anymore as brands have got tubeless stuff more dialed in.

^ This. Buy the cheapest charger2 RC lyrik and install HC97 comp unit, this setup is far superior to the charger 2.1 Push even recommends a rebound shim stack based on your weight and includes the shims. It's a major departure from stock, despite using ... more »
