Reach out to Scott directly. The bike is still pretty new so they almost definitely have parts.

I know people are going to talk shit on dish soap but I add a few pumps of dish soap to a bucket of hot water. Dawn is designed to work on oil (grease) so when used with hot water it cleans chains and stuff really well. People say it will dull your finish ... more »

So that is 2500 frames per year if sales are linear, which I'm sure they will not be. Likely something like 500, 2500, 4000. I won't discount cash flows, because I don't need eyes to totally glaze over here (plus have no idea how cash flows would work...more

To keep the grips from punching out put a coin in the end before you install. Not sure what coin that would be in euro, but for the the US folks its a nickel. I was able to find article with pictures if I'm not making sense.

If you’re in Cali and they operate in Cali file a consumer complaint with the attorney general in your state. They have forms on their website for this.

While I agree with your sentiments on UCI giving close to zero f*cks about DH, it can be argued that without Redbull, UCI could very well reduce DH even further or remove it from overall broadcasts. With all it's faults, Redbull has done a lot for our sport many other potential...more

watching chase ride that bike makes me think it was just too heavy, he could barely move it around the trail, looks like he is just plowing over everything and we all know that is not how he rides.

Yet another overpriced weak motorbike. E bikes are the bane of actual mountain biking, especially now that they are looking and weighing near the same.

Cannot upvote u more! the only WRAP that is acceptable on the bike is chain stay, just to prevent metal on metal noise is some frames

In an industry overwhelmed with dumb and overpriced products. The protection film market is leading the charge for the stupid looking to give away their money because they don't want a scratch on their frame. Insane.

I’ll jump in to get to page 4. I’ve always interpreted it as you can’t touch the outside of the base of the poles. So like in the lenzerheide cathrovision I think riders could bunny hop fully inside the pole if they clear it. I think a “line” is drawn ... more »

In the damping and spring curves is a bump gobbling machine (very active), not a heavy hitter (support), that type of riding is a perfect fit for the 34. Want more aggressive trail? The Evo is for that. The 34 is a good and probably underrated fork.

I had a C1 170 for awhile. I concur with much of what you said. I've owned most of the brands on the market and it was very smooth and consistent. Probably the best-feeling post I've had; not notchy or slow. However, I had to use that external bleed procedure ALOT....more

that isn't the same. Different fluids plus waaaay different operation. Brakes are a simple, pushing a fluid that doesn't compress against a piston. In a reverb, oil is moving and circulating through the "damper." Even a suspension fork will feel odd in the winter.

Huh? I ride a cable actuated dropped all winter here in Vermont. Winters are very cold and I've never had a cable freeze. If anything gets wonky in cold temps, its hydraulics.

I guess it's just because I'm a cheap bastard, but it's pretty remarkable to me people are still spending $400 on droppers when PNW and One-up posts work so well
