We all run different tires and pressures front to back, why not different rims. I think this is the concept that Crank Bros Synth wheels are trying to achieve.

Durability, compliance, or pinch flat resistance. Pick 2, and buy an insert. Lol

It’s a great discussion to have, and how cool were those slow mo shots of the rear wheel contorting into a pretzel in the berm? Like you said, I think there are different needs for a front wheel and a rear wheel. Similarly, I’m always surprised when good riders run the same tire pressure front and rear.

This makes so much sense. I've always found it rather insane that wheelsets usually have the same front and rear rim.

So impressive. Such a great representation of the right way to progress too.

Crankbrothers make the Highline 3 in 27.2, the KS Lev is also available. FOX have the Transfer SL as well.

"Why bother?" - this tester could literally not fit a 100 mm on this frame...

I threw the 110mm version of this on my Surly Bridgeclub and transformed my road-ish commuter into a whole new bike, much more capable of hucking curbs and the occasional singletrack adventure. I'm 5'-9" on a medium frame, and although 110mm doesn't sound like much in the modern...more

Wowza. That's a very low bottom bracket.

This looks like an awesome option for anyone trying to breath a little life into a bike that otherwise wouldn't fit a dropper post. Curious how many other 27.2 dropper options are out there? I know Thomson used to make a 27.2 dropper and I think X-fusion still makes one, but not sure how many competitors are out there.

I appreciate the ability of corporate speak to use so many words and still be so vague and meaningless: "By combining our activities in the new structure, we are even better positioned to serve the needs of our customers in the bicycle industry." Translation: ... more »

I do not know exactly. But with the new continental DH tires and tire insert in the rear it is probably 17.4 kg. But honestly I do not caresmile It definitely feels lighter

Weight, price, traction and arguably looks. 3 strikes and you’re out.

Dr. Bong Hit, PHD, I respectfully disagree. Until recently, World Cup DH racers were drilling out their shoes so they could run the cleats farther back than the stock shoe would allow, and that phenomenon only stopped because shoe companies started offering DH shoes with longer cleat slots. Everything I've seen and everyone I've talked to says that, overwhelmingly, clipped-in World Cup racers run their cleats slammed as far back as they go. For the flat pedal question, a quick google search of Sam Hill shows that he normally has his flat pedals pretty mid-foot. I don't know anything about foot position for motocross, though.

Luckily haven't touched the shocks yet (and don't intend to) and have been limited to Grip(1) 36 forks, but my god is RS sooooo much easier and cheaper to service. Plus it looks to be built better with a lot less (none actually?) plastic in the damper. Night and day. RS >>> Fox in my opinion.
