Spank Oozy Trail Flat Pedal - Review
I was replying to your comment "Actually, a lot of dh bikes ability to hold a line is the suspension, its the amount of negative travel they have (once sagged back up to full extension). Its why vpp is a very effective dh suspension platform, because they typically run a little extra sag by design." I assumed you were implying that I wasn't feeling the difference between weights, but between a DH bike & an AM bike.

Spank Oozy Trail Flat Pedal - Review
FWIW: After riding ~43lb DH bikes for about ten years, when I got a ~31lb AM bike, I noticed immediately that it couldn't hold a line like the heavier bikes did(& one of my DH bikes was a bottlerocket, which has similar travel & geo to my lighter AM bike.) Had to ride the bike in a completely different way. You could argue that the heavier bike was better, because it was nimble, but stayed where you put it, whereas with the AM bike, I can put it where I want it, but when I hit an obstacle, it might deflect over to a completely different line. I know which one I want to pedal back up to the top of a trail though.

That not how lubricant formulation works, there's only a few bases used for lubricants. (In the case of chain lubes, it's almost universally petroleum, paraffin, or a synthetic.) Asking what they're using for a lubricant base isn't asking for the keys to the kingdom, it's asking what's on the ingredient list on the back of the bottle. which is why i asked somebody who would have a bottle of it in the first place: he could look at the list. If they've got some completely new substance for the base, instead of one of the 3 normal ones, they would be making a much bigger deal about it, because it would be a REALLY big deal: bike chain lubes have all been one of those 3 for about 15 years.

That doesn't answer my question. If it's not petroleum or synthetic based, then what's the base? Parrafin? I want to know how it preforms compared with modern synthetic lubes.

I'm fairly certain $107 is cheap for a stem... said no-one ever.

Fox Launch Enduro Knee Pad - Review
I bought the new Dianese. Haven't done any 20 mile rides in them, or bailed in them, but so far, they're invisible while pedaling. A bit hard to find though.
