I have the bladder conversion on my double barrel air and sure maybe it was placebo effect but I found the difference on fatigue was noticable (tested against another to make sure my 300$ experiment was worth it) compared to the IFP. The O-ring on the ... more »

To clarify, this is for our local DH trails near Calgary. It's a valley setting in the Alberta foothills (Moose Mountain) with two gravel fireroads with trails built off both sides and a low lying parking lot in the middle. 9-11km per lap up the first ... more »

I agree. A dummy shell for the Bosch/whatever motor when I don't want it and I'm in. Duel wielding. The Cannondale moterra SE with the 180 boxxer with that and I'm so in.... I want a Cannondale and an ebike... This is the end times

Yea make sure you test one first. I'm sure a friend or a local shop need will have a shock you can install and do a bottom out test to make sure there's no frame contact. A friend did it with an older intense spider going from a 200x51 to a 200x57 and ... more »

I have been running Sram 900's on my Tracer the last two season. Good engagement, nice sound and so far very reliable. It is only a 4 pawl design but again, so far they haven't missed a beat

That's a good point, when did the rules change again? You'd have to back track it through quiet a few seasons to figure that out
