Started new thread Seeking video, cave exit on cliff wall, steep rock roll 7/15/2015 12:04 PM

Anyone remember watching a video where a mtn biker exits a cave mouth that is on practically a vertical cliff face, and rolls down the side of it like it were a vert ramp. The stone looked similar to southern Utah, but cannot confirm that the video actually ... more »

Nice and efficient mechanic setup. BEEF. Hope that's not a tall can of silicone-based polish in the back.

Added reply in a thread do you flip your bike upside down to put on your front wheel? 6/6/2015 1:41 AM

Semi-related question, how do you hang your bike when doing fork servicing? I just stick another fork into the bike, since I have a spare and I only have wall hooks, feedback floor display stands, and my 1 feedback workstand. I figured I'd hook the saddle ... more »

Don't F up the body of your FR-S by using a trunk rack. Here's an example of someone needing to transport his bike with a FR-S, after losing their truck. http://www.imtbtrails.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=15517#p15517

Added a comment about product review Tested: 2015 BOS Dizzy Fork 6/4/2015 2:08 PM

Wow, the bushing bulge on the lowers looks so much lower than on RockShox's offerings... that certainly plays a big role in providing the extra stiffness and less bushing bind. Further apart = better for suspension performance, but the stanchions need to be that much longer (heavier) and need to have tight tolerance before they hit the inside-bottom of the lowers at max travel (no travel adjust, requiring unique parts for specific fork travel). That all said, if the Lefty had damping on a BOS level, I'd be all over that. The 45mm offset on this is a turn-off.

The front's pretty easy to do upright, but gets knocked over easily, doing even more damage, so I usually do it upside down with something soft like my gloves padding the vulnerable bits. Same reasons for the rear, even though cage lock makes it so easy. ... more »

I also wish the hub had more PoE. It clunks loudly when engaging, especially when you have an uneven pedal stroke. Reminds me of a 18 PoE DT, it's so annoying. If it engaged with less noise and shock/feedback, I wouldn't notice it as much (and be less annoyed).

Gnarly chunk you got there. That last pic reminds me of the Stairway to Hell in Noble Canyon. I rode that for the first time about a week ago and felt like my SJ EVO 26 with XC rear tire was undergunned. Pinch flatted it there even at 40 psi (pumped it up hard after the 1st pinch flat, and it was my last tube)...

I believe I found it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1q3LV2yyzJg Not as gnarly or had as close of a call as I remembered.

I'm looking for a video that was posted about 3 years ago, which featured a solo rider's PoV who I think had a Spanish name, riding along a mountain trail that wasn't very steep, but he held a 20+ MPH pace almost the entire time, with rock gardens that ... more »

"New lightweight hubs feature..." what, besides having 28 spokes and hand-built Shimano quality? Sounds like they wanted to say something about them, but forgot.

Following the path that Shimano took years ago. I found that if my bike was locking up from the power of Shimano's brakes, it was often the cause of flexy fork, frame, and crappy tires. A demo ride on stiff frame like a Yeti SB6c with Float 36 and High Roller 2s made that clear.
