Added reply in a thread Sharp knobs or compound? 10/7/2020 8:27 AM

Logically that makes sense and I think I agree, it seems like on hardpack surfaces and rock faces soft compound would be more important but in soft sandy loose or loam knobs are gonna play a bigger role. Sounds like terrain is the deciding factor.

Started new thread Sharp knobs or compound? 10/6/2020 8:11 AM

Had a thought whilst driving home yesterday, what has more grip for longer? Maxxgrip or Maxxterra? Before replying read the rest! So nice sharp square knobs have a huge part in creating grip but soft compound does as well. Here is where the thinking ... more »

I'd say make sure your sag is set properly and ride more you'll figure it out. this gmbn video should clear everything up! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Te9OKLIhWZo

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 »

For me a shorter fork kinda defeats the purpose of a DH bike. 200mm or bust ! haha

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

Added reply in a thread Lets talk mullet bikes! 9/30/2020 9:39 PM

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 »

Thanks guys looks like ill be saving my pennies and praying that the price on the canyon sender mullet drops!

Added reply in a thread Lets talk mullet bikes! 9/30/2020 1:55 PM

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 »

Drilling out a stem sounds Sketchy HAHA!! But on the topic of forks I have been wanting to try the new part from vorsprung the Secus. I am always a fan of having a plusher fork but that seems like alot of money to strap donkey kongs barrel to my fork. ... 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 »
