Started new thread Coil spring number 5/19/2021 3:21 PM

So a customer came in to pick up a rockshox spring today and asked what the first number was before the spring weight. It was 88 and just before the 450lb spring weight. I had never really given it much though. What does the 88 mean?

Intense first started with the design waaaaaay back in 15'/16 when Palmer showed up to Fontana with a proto. So it's not like they just copied Santa Cruz on it. Someone mentioned in here at some point that during that time as part of the VPP license ... more »

I ordered a Rootdown frame from Chromag in October and started sorting out parts then. In December I started seeing delivery dates pass by so I panic ordered from our distributor's knowing we could sell the extra parts. Out of three drivetrains, three ... more »

Yes to the spacer thing. Just do some 1.5mm wahers in each 20mm package. The 23mm ones are like finding palm trees in antarctica some times and it's frustrating as hell to have two different skus. Especially right now. I shouldn't have to do washer runs ... more »

I've definitely come across many centerlocks that were not properly torqued and were loose on new builds as people don't check them during the build, but that's more a matter of younger shop employees trying to rush stuff. I'd be interested in knowing ... more »

Serious question, what is the issue people have with centerlock? Am I the only one who's enjoyed using them? Quick to change and install. I've never had an issue personally. Have I just been lucky?

Wild part is, rockshox has had a grip style damper in some of the Yari's from a few years ago that didn't suck, there is that??

The amount of broken motion control dampers I've had to deal with over the years is stupid. The adjuster rod from the top cap ends in a terrible little wedge shape that soft connects onto the plate that slides over the ports to lock it out. That wedge breaks all the time and locks the fork out at random, especially on bigger hits. Garbage.

So, with Katy's news finally being out, is that a wrap? Anyone else outstanding? Do we start a 2021 Race chat sticky?

Also noting the lack of shocks for non-metric bikes. I guess this is the final death kneel for those older frames as far as high performance shocks go.

Also, stoked on the DHX, I’ve been commenting fox needed a coil version of the DPX and while this isn’t a direct port, its close enough

Only news I've really cared about this off season. Good for her. Hope she crushes it.
