People actually use dust caps?

My valves have seized a bundle of times this winter. Haha

I never used to, but I use them now.

Double post, but it's totally unrelated.


Anyone around 78kg running a Pike?

What sag are you running, and what pressure is that roughly?

I tried 2 bottomless spacers but it made the fork feel pretty harsh. I liked my BOS at around 20% sag, so it might be that I need to increase sag with the bottomless spacers in there.

i run just under 30 on my lyric with the standard number of tokens and it feels bless.

nsmb has an article about pike/monarch tuning and their testing results on their site, worth reading. as i recall their tester was a similar weight

Zerode trail bike

Proper place to put all the gears. As opposed to 50t cassettes that are upcoming.

Now, if only they realize we need range, not gazzilion gears to match perfect cadence - for three seconds until trail changed - so that weight and cost can be halved and maybe even efficiency improved.

550% to 600 % range and five to six gears is all we need.

me too!

by the way the industry is going with cassettes a gearbox is a more sensible option

Who will be servicing that gear box when it fails? People act like they do not ever have issues and that is not true with pretty much anything. Let alone a gear box with a bunch of stuff moving around.
