Preload adjustment is very different from what the Sprindex does. Preload has always been adjustable on any coil shock via the spring nut. Sprindex is an adjustable coil spring spacer. By surrounding and cradling several coils,it allows you to effectively change the...more

Why did commencal ditch the "split pivot" the had with the older generation clash and revert to the same system as the meta?

John Caletti's shop is where I added the bottom bracket pivot to my DH bike to convert it from the SWD swingarm that was originally on it to the Bullit one it has now. Good guy. I'm 6'7" (2 meters) but I stopped riding after my MS diagnosis in '14 and hadn't been in the market for bikes when the reach and...more

Thanks Josh! I remember you from Post Office days...I don't trust my welding skills enough yet so I actually had John Caletti of Caletti Cycles do the tig welding for me. I did all the fabrication of parts including the jigs, and mitering all the tubes, but left the CNC work up to local machinist Dave...more

By the looks of the fork and other details, it's likely made by Yudi:

85 bucks and he'll make you any bike you fancy.

EDIT: It could also be Tarik, he has a user in PB:

...so if this would be an XC bike the direction angle would less lying down :p
P.S.: I dare you use the term "direction angle more lying down" for future bike reviews wink

that is such an awesome put together build right there. Questionable looking seat tube angle though, couldnt trust a carbon axle either but hell its nice!

Without getting too pinkbike, I personally wouldn’t ride on a carbon axle.

Awesome, these guys first throw in "form follows function" and then spec a carbon axle in an agressive trail bike...

Reminds me of those builds by the guy sanding down Scott frames. A massive pastiche of XC components on heavier hitting bikes.

Not very earth-shattering at $65 dollars. If they were $40-50 that would be more newsworthy. When you have a boutique carbon FS bike, top of the line suspension and carbon hoops you usually don't lose any sleep if you spend 10-15 dollars more per tire. Not diminishing the performance of the...more

Also, it's a nice looking bike but from an engineering point of view, the cut outs, etc aren't the most efficient way to use carbon fibre in terms of weight and strength. Large section monocoque structures are.

Curious to know what regulations are in Downieville for them to be able to be up there on Ebikes? Are those all accès motorized trails? National Forest? Private?
