You seriously sent money to NBC?????? Weird. I guess I should send them about $650,000.

The RUNT would allow you to run even lower pressure, giving you a more supple ride. The new spring rate also returns the fork to the beginning softer part of the stroke faster than 0 tokens. This makes the fork much more supple as well without losing support.

I do not believe you...more

Ok same experience here but solved with redline likewater suspension fluid. Think its lighter than 2.5 too.
Wouldn't worry about warranty, just pump with shimano stuff if you need to send it back

Try Putoline HPX 2.5 as break fluid instead of Shimano mineral oil. It mostly solves the problem.

I'm currently running xtr 12sp rear mech with sram cassette and x01 shifter. Got rid of the sram because the type 3 clutch is garbage and not adjustable. Absolute game changer. For some reason I had to constantly fine tune the xx1 and it always skipped on the 4th cog. B tension set at sag.
The shifting is more precise, and setup was easier with the 51t mark on the derailleur cage. Running with kmc chain too.

I've got 2 conflicting views here. Had a really bad experience last year racing the MT7s on the megavalanche. Virtually no braking from halfway down, completely cooked them. I only found out later the magura mineral oil has a boiling point of 120 degC! The levers are also terrible and I had them all including the hc3s. You actually lose some mechanical advantage with the hc3s too.
With the shimanos the problem is with the viscosity of the mineral oil and the small master cylinder port. The oil simply can not return fast enough hence the variable bite point. Use something very low viscosity like redline likewater suspension fluid and the problem disappears. Plus a higher boiling point.
I'm about 110kg and race alpine events, I have tried everything out there including new cura4 and trickstuff.

Sorry didn't see your comment.
All 170mm fox 36s can be made into 180mm by adjusting internally. There is a peg on the top cap shaft to be moved down 10mm and a spacer to be removed from the neg air chamber.

Nice to see a legit tubeless DH casing tire. Not sure I'm willing to jump in at $90 a tire to see if I like them though.

I had two LB rims on my XC bike. Cracked the rear on the third ride. Cracked the front a year later. Now I'm running "name brand" carbon rims and when you compare them to the LB rims, it's very clear that the LB rims are thin and weak... especially the bead. That sad, I've...more

I'd still be riding my bombers if the bike hadn't be pinched! Nice build sir.
Had a zaskar with 97 bomber z1 bams, progressive coils both sides and custom damping.

Yes, that's touchy and the more E-MTB I see, the angrier I'am.
They might be fun (like kissing your cousin!) but they are wrong!

Gotta be a rim only option as they offer only boost at present. Missing a massive market without rim or normal options
