Added a comment about video Do You Lose Air When Removing the Shock Pump? 5/25/2020 9:19 AM

I get it, the air you hear coming out is from the pump not the shock. I was just questioning whether it's truly zero loss, and throwing a bit of Stevie Smith content for fun.

IIt would be in the noise but is there a volume difference between when the valve core is open and closed?

Is there really no loss though? This video reminded me of Nigel Reeve's pro tool box check where he talks about buying a fancy gauge that has zero loss which he says most don't have?

Sweet edit, but when are the redbull style canned guitar rock soundtracks going to die? They are ruining at least 50% of online bike videos these days.

There is so much good music out there, please someone make these crap soundtracks go away!

Ummm, hasn't KS had a 27.2mm Lev for years? Pretty sure I have an old one in my shop somewhere that never worked very well. Maybe I'm wrong and it was a different KS model.

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 »

I'm looking into it, but I believe that Strava is adding the data from private rides to the heat map. I know of certain trails on private land that doen't show up on the regular strava map but show up on the heat map. I contacted them about removing ... more »

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.

World Championship Downhill Action from Hafjell

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

Who needs to wear armour when the trees do it for you?

Blenki's haulin through that section. He barely touches the ground!
