Im not a fan of the hate on so called copy cat junk, If a specific design works then it works and I'd rather have a proven suspension design that ten other bikes use than a unique one thats crap. Do you look at dirt bikes and go "oh look at all that ... more »

I agree all those factors do affect bike characteristics but, it was more of an idea of since I don't like my fork I would like to buy a new one and while I am at it I would like to mullet my bike only if I can keep the geo of my bike the same as it ... more »

I was going to use the Marzocchi 58 becuase its relatively inexpensive as far as good forks go and im not a big fan of high speed and low speed adjustments, Im more set and forget. I hadn't thought to give YT a call, I will call them and give an update ... more »

Wouldn't it be nice if all bikes were as adjustable as that new Scott Gambler!

I like a mullet for more than just it being a fad, I’m way to short for a full 29er but I like the way the bigger front wheel deals with holes and square edge hits. I found that the 29er front wheel on blown out bike park trails with huge bomb holes ... more »

I don't think those will work because they slacken the head angle as well as dropping the BB. unless I'm not understanding the different types. my bike sits at 63.5 head angle and if I went to the 29er fork and wheel up front it would drop to 62 degrees, ... more »

If your going to get one upgrade for your bike I highly recommend Magura's. I am fully convinced nothing will improve your riding ability and riding experience like Magura brakes! plus the MT5's are relatively inexpensive. Also I am sure the assegai ... more »

I wonder if no MSA has something to do with the mistakes that were made in getting Brook (Bulldog) off the hill last year? Maybe they violated the UCI venue rules by not having certain medical criteria in place to proper get a downed rider to the hospital? ... more »

For snow summit you cant beat the DHF (collin bailey tested and designed the tire at Snow Summit) and it really shows that tire works very well on the front and backside trails of SS. The Assegai is an anchor its not a good tire for westridge as its ... more »

Hello, If you own a rockshox fork I advise doing a lower leg before 50 hours. I had a friend tell me his brand new boxxer had almost no oil in the lowers, so I decided to check my fork and my wifes fork, we both only have about 10 hours on our forks ... more »

the reason its not set from the factory is different frames, cassettes, jockey wheels, ect. means that the b screw needs to be adjusted differently so they allow movement for adjustment, but once adjusted it no longer needs to be have movement. So once ... more »

Nope, i've been running in and it shifts perfectly fine! also its break for the breaking bumps at bike parks as those are known to damage b screws and this locks it into place so that it doesn't smash up your screw. Its pretty legit I can see why it ... more »
