Added a comment about photo Alumimum Radiator Cooling Fins on Greg Minnaar's FOX DHX2 8/7/2016 3:52 AM

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.

Added a comment about video Video Comparison of RockShox Bottomless Tokens in a Pike Fork 6/19/2015 10:58 AM

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.

Somehow the sport seemed bigger back then with all the sponsors foreign to the sport and specators

I think a few direct-sale companies in Europe will start to ship their products globally like Canyon or Yt. Their frames are lighter and more proven than that airborne frame (which might be ok tough). But I doubt this build will beat these compolete offers...

You even read that in user-feedback. I never trust those rave-reviews here or on pinkbike. Just scroll down to the comments or a random forum and then it's #realtalk

Lolwut? The TTX is basically a expensive, proprietary CCDB with less adjustment. I didn't ride it personally yet but the feedback from a few friends who rode the ccdb said it feels not much different. So not hard to beat. The pike is on it's own considering it's weight/performance/stiffness ratio but a game changer? You industry hyp-people just need to turn it down a notch or two...

Also: TLD A1 - "best fitting helmet" I think helmet fit is a individual thing. Or did you test _every_ helmet on the market on hundreds of people in all sizes? There are tons of more affordable helmets with the same features.

Added a comment about photo SR Suntour Auron Fork 9/27/2013 2:01 AM

I heard the reason is that suntour has no patent for oil in the lowers. I added motor oil in the lowers of my durolux and it made them smoother. Cartdrige is easy to service too but it has a weird range of rebound and makes noises too. Other than that the fork is a bargain.

lol as if noone is aware how mtb-media-coverage works and how "reporters" are linked to the industry. I'm not saying they pay you money but I saw that sweet enve-bronson sc gave to sven. I also would write great things about 650b if I got on for free...

Not digging the desperate marketing-fueled 650b-caps "hurr durr there was a 650b-bike in the top10 must be fasta durr" I know you guys must hype the products of your industry-peeps but at least try to be a bit more subtle.
