FOX does not offer that size in the DPX2 as an aftermarket shock for the public at this time. They are special order for OEM and FOX's athletes only as far as I know. I am waiting on one to be built for me and should have it in April to put on this bike.

Yah, I won National Champs in 2001 at Mt Snow on the Comp 32 front and rear. The speeds and rocks basically required you to run a high volume tire or you would be replacing rims every other run. Yes, to the High Roller being a copy of the Comp16. As ... more »

Not 100% all true. I will say Maxxis did do well in the early 2000's, but the Michelin Comp 16 and 32 were still the top tire choice of Pro's into the early/mid 2000s. I was mainly stating that Michelin set the standard and design for even tires of today. ... more »

Have ridden and R&D tires for Michelin in the past for almost 10 years. I would bet the DH32 will be a larger air volume tire with larger lugs much like the old Comp32. Note: I do not ride for them now, but do ride for Continental Tires. The most ... more »

Can you give a little info on the wheelset? Rims and Hubs? I see they are Race Face rims. Are they a Race Face set or using another brand of hubs? Didn't know Race Face made a 29er DH Wheelset yet.

Good morning Bitumen83. I choose the Sight due to my riding style and the trails I ride on 85% of the time. I like a trail bike to feel lively under me. When you step up the travel to 6" plus, bikes start to fell sluggish on the trail unless you are pointing it downhill. Plus, I do race DH too and felt I didn't need two long travel bikes in my stable. If I were to have had a do it all build, I would have gone with the Range.

Hope this helps,

Here you go guys. photos of the MAXXIS Tubeless Rim Strip. Last photo I threw them on my Boyd Cycling Ridgeline carbon wheelset. Notice how the rim strip also hangs over to help protect the rim.

Like I said, not hijacking the review as it was well written and done well. Just saying not a fan of companies taking old designs and technology and claiming to be the one that came up with it. If anything, maybe give credit where it is dew and state you have redesigned it for your applications. For them to be going after a Patent on a product designed and brought to the market in the late 90s is nuts.
