Shimano Zee levers, Magura MT5 calipers, Trickstuff BrakePower pads for me. Downsized the front rotor too, I was not fast enough to use the full power of my 220mm front brake.

Genuinely asking : is it a claim or a fact ?

Added reply in a thread MTB Tech Rumors and Innovation 9/7/2021 2:23 AM

My brain melts. How tf a chainring constantly spining forward (plus having an infinity of POE) could, even by a percent, eliminate pedal kickback (which is the chainring being pulled rearward) ?

When you say "most brands"... Which ones ?

If a marketing dude say it, it must be true.

Same bearings as BB30/PF30, but in the case of 30mm spindles on BSA68/73 (Rotor for example), I guess not.

I was a sort of "anti"-29ers back in the days (way before 2017...). But always loved slack and not-so-long-let's-say-just-at-my-size bikes. So now I'm on a 483mm normalized reach ("normalized reach" being the virtual reach at 600mm of stack, it's a simpler ... more »

I can't deal with Hope... Love the feel, the power, the look and all but there are two major drawbacks for me (experimented on a pair and shared with other users) : when the brake starts to have a loss in power, modulation or other, in short when it ... more »

Just checked a spring on a web shop, it's written "61(350) x 57.5-65MM", and this works since 61 N/mm equals 350 lbs/in.

Added reply in a thread Coil spring number 5/20/2021 12:47 AM

450 lbs/in = 79 N/mm The mystery thickens.

"The prices rise because of raw materials and shipping". Yes. Yes it is. Because the supply is not calibrated to the demand. So raw materials suppliers and shipment suppliers are rising their price. That's what MTB brands are saying, and that's true. ... more »

I see your point. But since we'll never be pro riders, shouldn't we have to shut up about pro riders and their choices ? (to be clear, it's just to be devil's avocate, I 110% agree on the fact nobody have to dictate Rachel's choice. I think we just,

Not necessarily an end (nobody wants it on this forum I guess !), but at last a pause. Just cause, you know, a man doesn't carry a fragile future human in his belly
