FWIW, I came to this realization back when I had my first generation Transition Smuggler with a 160 (gasp) fork on it. That bike was f'ing awesome. It was way too heavy, but it showed me what an XC/trail bike could/should be. To date, that remains one of my favorite...more

Nailed it.

Larger negative volumes means you can run higher overall pressure without losing your small bump.

I have found it interesting how everyone seems to push toward adding volume spacers to let them drop pressure for supposedly a more supple feel. This is the opposite of...more

GREAT episode. I’ve been thoroughly pleased with Push for years now having 3 shocks done over the years and most recently Darren’s wife, Christina, gave me solid advice on which used Fox fork to get that would be best suited to their tune so once I got it I had the factory tune...more

Remember when XTR hubs laced to 517s was the hot shit wheelbuild? And suddenly alloy nipples came out and you could get some fancy looking shits? And your shop would handbuild them and it'd be like 600 bucks? And then Crossmax and Deemax wheels came out and they were like $800 and everyone...more

Richie, I'm stoked your coming back to racing but, YOU HAD SIX PLUS MONTHS OFF AND YOU ONLY MADE THIS ONE EDIT?!?! You could have been pumping out one of these a month at least. I demand entertainment.

Specialized pants on both of them. #teamrumors2020

EDIT: maybe they're just his friend's pants, since, you know, he 'forgot his kit' or something.

It's 2019, bizutch! Everyone is on tubeless. Good catch though. It has been added to the review.

Definitely a bit shortsighted of Kona on your rims. Ghetto tubeless could be an option for you.

Honestly you can run tubeliss on that setup. Doesn't Bruni run 25mm rims on his DH steed tubeless? Ghetto tubeless would work well, too. That'd be my choice.

Either way, I know those rims will work tubeliss. Do it.

BTW, I mean this with all due respect, but why not try more gear...more

That choice was actually made so that the weight of the water bottle could help offset the weight of the drive train (which is heavier than the brake on the other side).

You can definitely feel this in wheels. When I upgraded to some dt 350 hubs I was amazed at even how long they would spin in the stand and it was immediately noticeable on the trail. Some of that speed went away when I installed the 54t ratchet over the stock 18t. This too was a noticeable difference.

trek's use of the term 12 years ago (for their 26/29 contraption) is why i'm still using it today. it's established. why start a new standard? mtbers hate new standards.

KS makes the Lev in 27.2.
I use a Tranz-X on my old Cove Hummer, 27.2,80mm travel. Costed me about 100 3 years ago, works flawlessly.
