SKF work well?

Yeah, actually comparable cost to Enduro bearings and holding up well, although they've only been in for a couple of months so not a real test. If they're still smooth after the Scottish winter then I'm on to a winner!

Very hope that they don’t die. Let us know, would then be my next bearings for the patrol. Ride a lot in the German winter, which might be comparable to Scottish summer, lol, and my pedal bearings just died after a couple of months.

Anyone on the fence about getting a carbon sentinel should talk to their dealer. hint hint.

Wet and muddy? Very much like Scotland! I'll let you know how I get on, I think the mud guard at the rear will help too. It's designed for the front but fits really well on the back, just need to drill a hole so you can cable tie it to the seatstay bridge.

X2 is brilliant, I feel completely planted and plush and still get good pop when I need it. It's taken me a while to tune it to my liking but now it's set up, I'm loving it.

Does this mean we’ll see a 29er with longer travel in 2020?

I'd agree. It took me longer to get my patrol with x2 really dialed than the super deluxe, probably because there is just more adjustment but it is amazing. Really takes the hard hits well and is still poppy and playful on small features.

I don't know about that. I just know the Sentinels are going on sale.

It really does take the big hits amazingly well. I played around with air pressure from 190 up to 220 and even at 190 when I was bottoming out all over the shop, it never felt harsh. FYI, I settled on 205psi at about 35% sag and I'm about 94kg

That sounds great. I mean I’m pretty satisfied with my TTX and the progressive spring, but sometimes it still kicks my feet of the pedals (haven’t tested this combo in summer though).

I wouldn’t say those are the hard hits but supposedly the low LSR range (just 6 clicks) with me being between the clicks. Ride it almost open, also just a few clicks LSC, so it couldn’t actually be the HSC or LSC but when it gets fast over roots or stones and the ground is rather flat, it kicks against my feet.

damn..... I JUST got my Sentinel. Hope it is not a better deal than I was able to come away with.

Saw an ad on instagram for a shop advertising a 20% off.

What bike cases are you guys using to travel with your bikes ? Most of the available ones seem to be too small for modern geometries.

I'm using an Evoc bike travel bag, was perfect for my Patrol
