Made the switch to a coil. Just need to find a heavier spring and it'll be ready to rip. Can't believe how much I love this bike!

i always liked the look of those Riots. i passed a guy who was riding one last week and asked him how he liked it and he seemed disenchanted, said "its really heavy..." so that kind of bummed me out.

It is pretty heavy, but I'm also pretty heavy and have definitely been more concerned about parts holding up than being the lightest on the block.

Looking good man, curious how you'll like those TRP's... I've heard good things.

Timely Riot post! Mine is a bit less put together.


Would be interested in trying coil, although right now I feel like I need more progression out of my shock. Just serviced suspension so we'll see what that's like. Saw that MRP Hazzard on Jenson when I was looking at 200x57mm shocks, hmmmm...

Thanks BB.... yeah I was really on the fence about veering away from shimanos... but from what I understand from a few homies is they are the best of sram and shimano mixed up in one.

As soon as the summer is toast I have some powder coat for this thing too... a silver grey translucent gloss that should be pretty cool.... i just dont feel like tearing it all down right before things start to heat up.

Looking forward to hearing what you think of the trp brakes. I’ve heard they are similar to magura brakes... long levers and all.

How do you like the Goodyear's? Same front and rear? Definitely considering them when it's time to replace mine.

I too am curious about those tires... thats a darn good looking enduro.

I had a Newton ST Newton combo, I knew they had to go when the front washed out in a straight line on a damp pavement, I’d had multiple issues on the trail with them too, conditions were wet so probably less than ideal for the shallow tread profile. Went back to Wild enduros, never experimenting with anything other than Michelin/Maxxis from now on.

I had a mate who took them to EWS Quelifier in Tasmania and they just didn’t like high speed berms. He went back to DHF front for race day.

I have really liked them so far actually, but I admittedly have not run them in very wet or sloppy conditions. I’m running the ST up front and regular Newton in the back - both 2.6, both EN Ultimate Casing or whatever the DH spec one is called. They’re not particularly light, but I would say they tend to roll pretty well. Set up on the 35mm Derby’s with pressures in the 30’s they feel stable and not sloppy, but there’s still plenty of traction. I like them a lot, and they’re some of the best I’ve had for where I ride, but as others have said, if you were looking for an all-conditions do-it-all tire there are probably better combos.

For those who are considering the TRP Quads, I would highly recommend those. Once bedded they have great power and all the lever feel you could want. I haven’t had to service them yet, but the shop that recommended and installed them continually says they’re some of the easiest brakes to maintain.
