First Look: Canfield Brothers Riot
Actually i agree the uphill should count more in enduro. But you have to avoid that race whippets sweep the field on the ups so much that they can get away with sketchy descending afterwards. For me a solution could be to time both ups an downs but weight the results differently like divide the uphill time by a factor, like halfen them, so gains on the ups count much less. Or give penalties for less weight/travel but that seems more like something uci would do so no, first option makes more sense.

First Look: Renthal 1XR Chainring
I agree its only/most helpful at low rpm - good for the few really steep grinds without needing a granny ring. And I don't find it hinders me when i spin 120 rpm either.

I agree, oval ring transformed my climbing. No more knee pain ever.

Absolute black oval N/W ring. In the nastiest of muds indeed mud clogged up and derailed. Black ano layer gone after 2 months. The mud was really nasty though: peanut butter mud sticking to everything.

FOX Factory Series Float DPS Shock - Review
Yes man 1245 psi was badass. But I needed it for the really harsh chunder and drops at double world cup speed that are typical for my home trails. Takes a while to reach that pressure with a pump though and i went through a lot of seals and shocks actually. Thanks god that is all solved now thanks to the corset.

FOX Factory Series Float DPS Shock - Review
Just mounted my corset on my pushed ctd shock. Did not get a ride in yet but the bike eases into its sag much more gradually and easily as opposed to suddenly breaking through stiction, and then mooves very smooth and supple through its travel. Had to go from 1245 psi to 155. For me it was night and day difference, coil-like is a good way to describe it. Push takes care of the good dampening so i am looking forward to first dirt. One problem remains though that has not been addressed in the new shock seemingly and cannot be fixed in an existing one: low oil volume which leads to degrading dampening performance very quickly - thus short service intervals. I guess the best option would still be to invest in a bos shock despite everything that cc, rs, fox do.

Maxxis' New Rubber - Taipei Show 2015
I am rather concerned how fast my shortys wear. trails are starting to dry up and there are a few hardpack/loose over hard corners and the cornering lugs are starting to show serious wear after 3 rides. center thread is fine though (because i don't brake...lol)
