Actually it looks like a 3rd gen AXS paddle for the Reverb seatpost (or whatever is assigned) controller. 1st gen is single control point with RockShox logo 2nd gen is double control point with RockShox logo 3rd gen (?) is double control point with no ... more »

It’s mentioned in this this article from Bike Rumor that prototype Giant DH rigs were spotted at the recent Snowshoe World Cup races.

Yeah, it’s already mentioned a few times further up on this thread - hopefully it’s true would be a good move for sure.

So the Semenuk pic dates back to summer 2019 and looks to be a SRAM Force 1 short or med cage (“Exact Actuation” printed on the cage is a roadie technology) mated to a standard X01 AXS body with a then pre-production battery guard and a custom rainbow ... more »

Great idea - hope to see something similar integrated into rear shocks too.

Current Boxxer 29er can choose 46mm or 56mm offset - the lower casting is the same for both and they achieve the offset difference in the upper crowns.

Actually looks like he was on Wetscreams front & back in qualifying.

I recall that this AXS Blackbox prototype from a year ago was seen on Brandon Semenuk's Trek Ticket S.

I’d say Stans 30mm tape would be ideal. This is from Stans FAQ: Which width tape should I use? “The widths of our tape are selected with our rims in mind. Generally, we recommend tape that is 1-2mm wider than the internal width of your rim to account ... more »

Reply to SRAM Eagle Clutch Sticking 5/26/2020 4:12 PM

The original 2012 XX1 had clutch issues and I had a hack that helped: remove the clutch cover with an o-ring pick, unfasten the retaining bolt with an 8mm hex, then add a thimble sized amount of chain lube, reinstall the parts in reverse order, and cycle ... more »

M1900 rims are 30 mm inner width? If so 1 inch gorilla tape is too narrow (25 mm). Go for wider tape I’d say. Stans do a 33 mm tape.

Good question - technically your tyres are optimised for the 30s so I would go for those. Having said that, some DH & Enduro riders run wide rubber on EX471 rims @ 25mm inner width.

Wonder if ZEB will be marketed as an e-bike specific fork, with the same fork re-badged for the normal MTB crowd as err Totem?

Reply to MTB Tech Rumors and Innovation 4/9/2020 11:39 PM

Looks like the catalog had an update and ZEB has been pulled - no sign of it that I can see.

Looks like those shoes are Five Ten Sleuth slip-ons, comfortable but no protection - fashion indeed....

This is from the UCI rulebook and explains the lack of Brendog, Luca etc: “A UCI gravity team ranking is calculated using by adding the point of the 2 best placed DHI men, the best placed DHI woman, of each UCI MTB team in the concerned UCI individual ... more »

From last months press release: “Sam Blenkinsop, Henry Fitzgerald and new Norco Factory DH Team member Elliot Jamieson will race aboard the Aurum HSP decked out with DT Swiss wheels and Maxxis rubber. ”
