Reply to FULL PROJECT PREVIEW: the PAPERBOY® Light Hybrid eBike with Gaming Roots 3/29/2021 7:47 PM

Sorry, i didn't watch your video because i would rather shit on my hands and clap So you are banking on people buying your bikes because of the nostalgia for a video game company? You keep saying "it's in the video", would you care to actually explain ... more »

Okay but do you honestly think that a 56cm bike will fit both 5'3 and 6'3??? How is "universal sizing" gonna work?

What is a video game company doing rebranding Chinese ebikes? What experience do you have running a bicycle company? What differentiates ... more »

It would help if the stock rapid recovery™™ rebound did not suck

why isn't it? you need to rebuild the shock regardless of whether you're installing an official sram tune or not

if the going to a different shop thing doesn't work, could you get any friends/family overseas to ship you some?

Go to another bike shop. They will likely be able to order the parts from the first shop, and then sell them to you for RRP. Dealer sounds like scam artists

just buy extra shims from a suspension/moto place and add remove as desired. want more compression, add some 0.15s. want less rebound take out a shim or 2. shims are all 9mm ID

Just get a Mara pro

I mean hey, better than cracking it open and fiddling with shims for HSC

RS inline shocks are fine, dunno what all the fuss is about. Can take a megneg, not horrible damping. Unless you're doing big descents of course.

yeah i guess enduro travel 29er. ohlins shock is interesting though..

Reply to MTB Tech Rumors and Innovation 11/22/2020 1:22 AM

Mate no one is forcing you to buy the updated products. That's all on you. Ebikes aren't gonna make people all of a sudden discover magic ways to make parts 40% lighter without making it way more expensive or weaker. There is no magic involved, it's ... more »

Velocity make a polished silver rim. Otherwise yeah custom paint I use silver spokes on all of my wheel builds. Doesnt get scratched, cheaper and looks super cool imo. All black just kinda looks boring and off the shelf, it's a custom wheel build i want ... more »

Very true. On the topic of ebikes, i think that 17kg ultra light ebikes are a false economy. Yes the light weight grabs headlines. But take a look at all the spec they have had to used to meet that weight. XC weight weenie parts do not belong on a 17kg ... more »

The current model enduro is not a 6 bar. it's still got 4 bar pedalling , axle path and braking characteristics. It's a horst link 4 bar with shock linkage
