Added reply in a thread New MTB design or monstrosity? 12/1/2017 7:27 AM

That design looks scary to me. The only thing connecting the two crank arms is the chains and hub? Pedaling on flat ground may be ok but as soon as you have any impact force that you bottom bracket and spindle usually absorb is now being absorbed by ... more »

Added reply in a thread Strava Shows Their Multi-Discipline Global Heat Map 11/2/2017 5:13 AM

Soles on my impacts have always lasted well for me. Usually get 3-4 years out of them using them for DH and 30 plus days of trailbuilding. I'm curious to try the new one out.

I've been using the freerider contact for trail rides and commuting and the sole is lasting ok. I tried out the first generation freerider and killed the sole pretty quick.

Niklas did better than Robin last year. Which I'm guessing is why they vital boys picked him as one of the wild cards.

Bingo. 711 is narrow! Put a bigger bar on there and you can run that short stem.

I'm running 760 on both my dh and trail bikes. Try it, you'll love it. I'm sure you used to think 760mm was too big for DH as well.

I'm the same height. I like 50mm or shorter stems. I have used (with varying success) 60mm stems in the past on frames that felt a little short. I find 70mm stems way too long though. How wide are your bars? The answer better be between 740 and 780 (haha).

The rule of thumb is to keep it under 50mm! Works really well for me.

Haha, how tall are you?
