Added reply in a thread 2020 Bike Park Openings 5/9/2020 8:26 PM

If I were a bike park, I would try and do an enduro ride up the mountain yourself kind of deal and not run the lifts at all. That way you don't have to pay for running the lifts and social distancing will still be maintained, not having everyone sitting ... more »

Added reply in a thread Adding Internal Dropper Post 5/9/2020 1:43 PM

I think they think it's not worth the $200 or so to get one. We are all in high school, so we don't make a lot of money (especially now), and I guess they'd rather spend their money on something else, as I think some of them aren't quite as into biking ... more »

Added reply in a thread Adding Internal Dropper Post 5/8/2020 6:00 AM

Glad to hear. Tell my friends that. I try to convince them that a dropper will transform their ride, but they won't have it. Until I take them down the rowdiest trails in the area, that is, then they see that the near OTB situations might actually be ... more »

Added reply in a thread Random musing: Road vs. MTB frame prices 5/6/2020 1:42 PM

Yeah... not entirely sure why anyone who didn't race professionally would spend more than $4k on a road bike. I suppose one could say the same thing about mountain bikes, but it's more obvious why thousands of dollars should be spent. I have personally ... more »

I don't know if you've already bought the KS, but PNW components makes a sub $200 one that connects at the base

Added reply in a thread Adding Internal Dropper Post 5/3/2020 9:07 AM

If I were you I would just get an external one. I agree with that they can look sloppy, but if you get one that connects at the base as oppose to the seat it looks better. The reason I say this is if for some reason it all goes to hell and you develop ... more »

Added reply in a thread Opinion Needed - 2020 Trek Marlin 5 or Kona Fire Mountain 2019 4/22/2020 8:40 AM

Just by taking a quick look at both bikes, if the Kona is spec'd better, it's by a small amount. The fork on the Kona is virtually the same as is on the Trek. I don't know much at all about that level fork and the different models, but just about all ... more »

Added reply in a thread $2500 FS Options 4/22/2020 8:12 AM

Look at the pinkbike field trip. In a series of videos they reviewed 8 budget bikes around your price range. The Vitus was praised, as well as a Commencal Meta and a YT Jeffsy of some sort. For sure check that out. I think it will be helpful.

The thing that goes squish and holds the front wheel on the bike, What do you call it?

Started new thread When/will enduro racing become as intense as DH? 4/19/2020 5:45 PM

Downhill racing at the WC level has gotten to a point where to even be close to the best, you needed to have been riding/racing downhill quite frequently since you were a very small child, something that requires basically living next to a bike park. ... more »

They kind of entered the industry back when they and santa cruz made a chameleon together.

Added reply in a thread Bike upgrade suggestions 4/17/2020 7:58 PM

people have said it, but for real get a dropper post. you can get a post and lever for $200 total. PNW and Oneup both make great affordable ones. It's incredible the difference a dropper makes if you actually use it. Second, and with less priority, a ... more »

Added reply in a thread Low friction fork seals? 4/17/2020 7:48 PM

I mean it's $30 for a Fox dust wiper / foam ring kit, so for only $6 more I'd try it if you intended on switching seals anyway.

Added reply in a thread Servicing Marzocchi Bomber Z2 / Rail damper 4/17/2020 7:24 PM

It calls for 20wt oil on the website, so it should be about 20 pounds on the scale

I'm in no hurry to service it so when I do I'll probably drain the oil, see if I can pull the lowers off, give the lowers, stanchion and maybe air spring a cleaning, ... more »
Added reply in a thread Servicing Marzocchi Bomber Z2 / Rail damper 4/17/2020 4:42 PM

I would too. When I go to ridefox.com and make my way to a page that's titled "all service procedures" there are two columns, fox products and marzocchi products. All they have up for marzocchi are two manuals on remote installation and one on how to ... more »

Added reply in a thread Servicing Marzocchi Bomber Z2 / Rail damper 4/17/2020 8:19 AM

To be clear (there was some confusion when I asked this on pinkbike), I'm talking about the 2020 version, not the older versions.

Started new thread Servicing Marzocchi Bomber Z2 / Rail damper 4/17/2020 7:33 AM

It's my understanding that because of the open-bath rail damper in the Marzocchi Bomber Z2, servicing it will be a different process than servicing regular Fox/Marzocchi forks. I'm familiar with servicing those "normal" damper clad forks, but I'm wondering ... more »
