Meet the New Boss - Enduro World Series, Round 1 - Rotorua
I raced this and flat pedals would probably have helped. Tracks went from awkward, treacherous and pedally to flat out DH tracks. So greasy And tricky I was clipping out a lot.

This shock has the custom rear mount to fit the Pivot Mach 6. Perfect condition shock literally used 5x and dialed in. I just got a new bike, so this has to go. Includes shock, volume spacers, manual, tune guide, allen key and original box.

Absolute Black Oval Chainring - Review
I ran a 34t Qring with a 1x10 Shimano setup. I didn't know there was a competitor for Rotor, which is a good thing as their stuff is overpriced. I found that it was too easy to put power down climbing. Many times the rear wheel would spin out when standing. These things really work and actually make climbing easier, but I had to concentrate on not spinning the wheel so much that I went back to a round ring. They probably would work great for XC and guys who don't stand to climb. They were easy to get used to and I never noticed any bouncing in the saddle or anything else weird. It's the opposite of Biopace! If Wolf made one I might try it again.

Video: Study Break
Sick riding, sick trail and sick edit! At first the full-face seemed out of place, then I saw how fast he's attacking that trail. Rock huck looked burly with a tricky landing. Full-face a great idea.

Top Three Finds - Interbike 2014
I ran a 34t Q-Ring for about 9 months back in 2013. I ran an upper guide and it worked well. It is definitely more efficient and puts down more power. Sometimes it felt like too much as it is easy to spin the back tire on loose surfaces. The teeth did wear down pretty fast, so hopefully the new ones hold up better. It's a perfect match for XC racing or those looking to save energy. I might give it a try again as my Mach6 came with a 30t.
