Reply to Fork oil discussion - brands, cold temps 10/21/2019 4:41 PM

It’s the Moto fork oil that has the extra additives the bicycle specific doesn’t, should be fine and is used a lot around the shop I’m at.

No I don’t and as a mechanic for a living all of this is offensive and I do shake my head at co-workers from time to time. I don’t understand why being a slob and a bike mechanic is so prevalent not to say I’m a neat freak but... sometimes it’s painful. ... more »

Reply to Would You Pay to Watch More World Cup DH on Red Bull TV? 6/1/2019 8:43 PM

I want to see more than one angle of hard/tech sections. I don’t want a lot of long straights with a ride tucked, sprinting, or long tabletops. I want to see real downhill. I can’t comprehend how hard my request is but don’t do it if that can’t be done. ... more »

I would pay however the number of track cameras would need to increase I want see more wooded areas and not motorways.

I felt a little weird about it but Spomer is right to have started a gofundme. I love that tire and have counted on it more times then I know. I have sold a lot of them over the years and use it as a gateway for people to stop counting grams to see they ... more »

Reply to Is the 29 / 27.5 combo (97.5) bike here to stay? 3/24/2019 6:34 AM

While I to was around for the 26-24” wheels I didn’t feel the turn in, which is a little better didn’t outweigh how the wheel fell deeper into holes. If I was to try different wheels again. I would try a plus tire like a 2.8 up front and a 29 rear. If ... more »

Would be nice if it was a dj frame, but clearly handle bar and likely a stem.

Nothing like a core sample to see what’s going on beneath you.

Reply to Sram x01 dh cassette + profile 10-11spd xd hub 2/3/2019 7:40 PM

@bturman Somehow before I thought he was putting on a 10-42 cassette, I don’t know why I couldn’t get that out of my head. I’m sure the key ways on the dh spacer is much deeper than the alloy 42 on the Xo1 making the profile spacer unnecessary. But It ... more »

It should be there, it looks a lot like a 10sp cassette spacer but if you don’t use it will ruin the free hub then the cassette getting it off. Why they do that is a mystery to me.

Reply to Sram x01 dh cassette + profile 10-11spd xd hub 2/3/2019 9:19 AM

I don’t know if profile still does this but they require a cassette spacer even on the xd.

That kinda confirms something I heard about gigantic ditching the DH bike and program. I hope it’s not so. The frame needs an update.

Reply to Wanted: Fox RP23/2/3 7.5x2.0 (190x50) 11/14/2018 7:56 AM

I think I have one but I need to find it it was out of a 2014 or 15 turner burner. If that works let me know it will take me a day or so to find it, could be at work. It’s in great shape fresh service fox tech did it.

Reply to Rampage 2018 10/26/2018 7:22 PM

I totally agree judged sports are dumb, coming from a “racer” first. However this is not a race there is no time (it’s the easiest way to define a winner imo) and an event like rampage is hard to quantify by numbers, so why do it? To me there is one ... more »

Wow this is weird, maybe someone has a good reason for this, but I can't understand it.

That's amazing someone would be ok with taping that hole in the track. I bet it was a joke to leave it in when it was taped.

For all that is good a pure in the world please don't make e-DH bikes.
