Mixing or using DOT in a mineral oil brake is not a good idea but with putoline there are many people who fixed their wandering bite point issue on shimano brakes by using this thinner fork fluid: https://www.mtb-news.de/forum/search/4758745/?q=putoline&o=relevance ... more »

it's the fork oil: https://www.putoline.com/de/produktkatalog/product/371/hpx-r-25w/1735/ it has thinner viscosity than shimano mineral oil

Shigura is old news. I recommend putoline oil for wandering bite point issue and if you wanna know more about pin/hose/oil combinations translate this thread:

Someone in a german forum mentioned that the grip2-damper can be assembled wrong meaning that every damper can feel a bit different: https://www.mtb-news.de/forum/t/fox-36-grip-2-my-2019.871779/page-144#post-17143636

Yes and no, they may have only increased the prices 10% or less, but that is MSRP. Up until this year bikes could easily be bought for 5-20% under MSRP, and parts up to 50% off online. Now that that is over, the price hikes are much higher for most consumers than 7%.

Examples: I bought SRAM GX...more

Why does including others mean you are ignoring your current demographic. Poc includes you my man. Why is trying to be more inclusive a bad thing or a waste of money if it means more sales in the future.

The lack of Poc in the sport is a huge issue for the industry. If they aren’t riding bikes they aren’t buying bikes. Seems like a worthwhile investment for the major companies who can only help their bottom line in the future. Especially as demographics of the us are...more

Here for the comments, since these types of articles always bring out the bigots/racists/homophobes/transphobes/overall shitty people. It's akin to turning over a log in the woods and a bunch of bugs start scrambling.

Alumimum Radiator Cooling Fins on Greg Minnaar's FOX DHX2

probably from North/Southbridge or onboard-graphics of a mainboard. But when I see the SC-Vids about Minnaar and Doughie talking about their bike-setup this could very well be a troll attempt for the gear-queer. I mean the contact surface isn't ideal and eben with a heatpad or past this mod would most likely not cool down anything. The contact surface be smaller than that of an average chip.

It's true that lower travel Pikes need more tokens. There's a chart here that shows how many each fork can take: http://www.vitalmtb.com/photos/features/How-To-Get-The-Most-Out-Of-Your-RockShox-Suspension,9020/Slideshow,0/bturman,109

I heard that lower travel Pikes need more Tokens. When I add 1 Token in my 160mm Pike I have to lower the air pressure to use full travel and then the fork feels too divey... need to test two but I wonder if there is a point where I can run x Tokens with lower pressure so that the fork sits high in its travel but I still use it fully. So far 0 Tokens and much air pressure felt best but then the fork is not so supple in the first third of the travel...

In germany shimano is like 1 third cheaper than sram for a comparable group. Tha's because the distributor here gets a really good deal but maybe the lbs don't like it because their margin is smaller.

They are going to sell a ton of bikes in the US and Canada too. I hope they can keep them in stock.
