When I did this I checked deep into the numbers. The axle to crown for a DH fork is only about10-15mm more than the rxf36 m.2 I had on there...so it screws with it slightly (.1 inches higher BB, 1 degree slacker HA. I actually wanted the slacker HA, and got 30mm of more travel out of the front end. Bars can be exact...more

4.2%... that makes me want to get a free bike for every female I know out there just to make this sport less of "rich white dude" sport.

Interesting that Sram and Avid are separate in brakes, I mean even if you combine both they still get to somewhere around 18% which doesn't hold a candle to shimano's 41%.

Maxxis is super interesting most shops in my neck of the woods tend to stick to the house brand tires. If they're a Trek shop it's bontrager if specialized specialized and so on. I wonder how many of those "oh yeah, I'm totally buying maxxis tires" turns into i bought Bontrager, Specialized or whatever because they were more available. I'm sure all the brands would argue that is what their sales show. After all, most tires are stacked up against a Maxxis tire


This is always super interesting!

Eddie blew that knee up years ago, just finally got around to getting it fixed (I think after doing it in a few more times) he talked about it on I believe the downtime podcast he was on.

No where near enough time specialized has already built the bikes. The enduro is getting a rework as far as I know but it won't happen for next year.

That seems like an almost depressingly low turnout from us Canadians. Bit of a shame really there are a few more names I'd love to see on that list.

I don't know what they are referred to in the states but in Canada we have a list of trades known as Red Seal... That's the only way to make this all better it brings a higher overall level of work and means that mechanics can begin asking for more and customers know the service they are getting is trustworthy reliable and consistent no matter where you go the mechanics have all passed the test, you haven't passed the test you don't fix simple as that.

Its how I'm working the shop I'm at now and its working just fine for us.

Watching it I get the feel of "life is a river". Cool video captures a moment most of us miss out on getting that one last day and waking up the next day to see snow.

Hopefully that fork doesn't give up the ghost like the ole zoke did.
