I took part in an enduro race in 2016, it was my only experience of it ('cause I hate all the logistics I've to put together ^^), and f***in' loved it ! But even if it was in the rulebook that NO "trainings" were allowed, a whole lot (a third at least)

Preload adjustment is very different from what the Sprindex does. Preload has always been adjustable on any coil shock via the spring nut. Sprindex is an adjustable coil spring spacer. By surrounding and cradling several coils,it allows you to effectively change the...more

Yep. So ZEB will be released the 22 too... Or more probably before. So this week. EDIT : the ZEB (or another component, but don't know which one if this isn't the

Or at least it is a "good" pretext to accelerate the price rocket-shipping. Since when Commençal decided to go consumer-direct they never cease to raise prices, year after year (or downgrading components, which is the same). Other brands did it too, ... more »

In this angle it doesn't appear to be larger stanchions... Burlier crown for sure, but from this point of view, that's it.

Is it grammatically incorrect ? Don't get it.

When you pedals, the movement of your crankset is clockwise on the right of the bike (considering you look at your bike side view), and counter-clockwise on the left of the bike, you agree ?

So when you want to tighten your pedals it's simply in the same way (clockwise or counter-clockwise) "than" when you pedals.

Very cool products here. Definitely looking at the single speed kit to replace a dying Rohloff DH. Had been considering the SB1 stuff but maaaan that’s expensive stuff to huck bike parks with. Also think the steerer clamp would make life so easy when there’s 4 bikes in the van.

About that..yeah, it is just you. wink I'm 5'8" and feel perfct on any bike which is in my size, even bigger than my size(that's up-sizing for you), regardless of the wheel size.
P.S. faster on the big wheels. wink

I'm 6'2" and was like "meh" on 29ers... Liked it for bombing, liked it even more in mullet form (for bombing and adding a whole touch of fun, don't really know how, maybe by lowering the BB, shortening the reach and slackening the HT angle, so MAYBE nothing to do with size of wheel).

But 29ers (or event mullet) in a mix of speed and fun (but essentially fun !)... Meh.

If I had the money available now I'd buy a Privateer 161 (+ a pair of bombshell wheels, 29" front, 27,5" rear maybe) and get rid of my 27,5" downhill rig for sure.

They'll have a 140-ish travel before a soon-burried 27,5".

(PS : I'm a big fan of 27,5", just became pessimistic about their future. At the front of bikes at least. Nostradamus said that in the 2022/3 horizon there will be only mullets, and only Greg Minnaar will remain on 29". Dual crowns everywhere. 38mm stanchions for everybody. Gravels will have flat bars, front suspensions and what will be named 650B wheels)

no demand for 275 in larger sizes... it's like the 26" from 5 years ago. Smart move on them.
