Quick question. What storage bib shorts are people using? Pretty sure I’m gonna get the specialised swat ones but if anyone can chime in with any advice that’d be great

I’ve got two pairs of the Specialized ones and they’re awesome. Really good fit and the storage is great. Lets me do a long ride without a pack.

Yep.. I have 3 pair of the Specialized Swat bibs.. Those combined with the Swat box on the bike and I have been able to race all day enduros without carrying a pack.. I was the only pro that didn't have a pack of some sort on.. It was nice!

Swat ones it is then! Gonna have to get creative with bike storage. Straps and jazzy bottle cage should do it

Someone running RS Super Deluxe Coil with Fox SLS spring to tell me the weight of this setup?

I don't think you can run that due to the internal diameter of the Fox spring being too narrow. Maybe checkout a SAR spring.

That one wasn't intended!


Us 35 pros took off earlier than that rest of the riders, so I didn't know what average Joe's setups were. And sometimes pros have lots of thought into setup for races.. So cool to have managed to be the only one without a pack!

And I'll freely admit that I just participate in the pro class.. I don't actually race the real pros. Lol

Gonna try a DSD Runt. A recent ride on a coil Helm made me desire better small compliance, but I'm not about to go coil just yet (on a fork).

Anyone else ride a Runt, AWK, DVC, or Mattoc with IRT?

If you were to put on a coil shock or do a coil conversion on your fork, and could only do one, which would you do? Why?

before switching to coil for better small bump chatter performance...consider going to Cushcore first.

Avalanche Hybrid Damper for a coil fork conversion? Why? It doesn't trash the air side spring, the damper blows away everything else out there, combines the best of air and coil spring. Only adds 170g. $159.

Last update on my Saracen. Been refused again. I don't know what to do, where do I go from here?

I strongly recommend everyone who reads this to never touch anything made by Saracen.

Make noise publicly on Facebook, Instagram, etc?

I'm half kidding but I have no idea. What a bunch of wanks.

Very intriguing, unfortunately Fox only right now.

Tried some other inserts and....meh. An extra pounds of rolling weight per wheel is very noticeable. My last flat was a could years when I completely sheared a side knob on an already worn tire. The dampening is noticable though.

Definitely worth it in a gravity bike, still not sold on a trail bike.
