by Pinkbike Originals  


It's easy to get caught up in the latest and greatest bike tech but we wanted to catch up with a few local riders to see what bikes they were riding.

 I don’t understand. You wouldn’t be able to stay on the seat. I have a very slight downward nose on my seat (like 0.5°) and I find myself sliding forward.

 the seat angle is funny but did anyone notice his derailleur cable goes right through his coil....

 Hi guys! We've developed a new bike component that lets you change your saddle angle on the fly: tilt down for climbing and up for descending. Just working on the website so may be buggy. Come check things out www.aenomalyconstructs.com
  • 1 0
 @ipattis: must be it. How else can you explain that angle?
  • 7 1
 @yale986: Didn’t Specialized already try this with the WU dropper post? As I recall it wasn’t received very well, but I never tried it personally. Seems like it could be useful.

 @yale986:

Just checked it out looks awesome!!! Game changer !
  • 3 0
 @gnarlysipes: Yes they did but it was a complete seatpost and I think the issue they had was limited travel. The SwitchGrade is a simple rail clamp replacement that's compatible with a wide range of seatpost and saddles so you can run any length!
  • 2 0
 @RcClarke: thanks for the kind words! We're hoping our little contribution to the cycling world can help riders climb more efficiently then descend unhinged!

 Ive tried that angle for ahead of so. It works to keep the front loaded but you use your arms/shoulders a lot and that gets old.
  • 3 0
 @flaflow: 100% agree! That's why we created the SwitchGrade so you could change the angle on the go without stopping. A nose-down saddle is great for climbing but can lead to strained arms, shoulder and wrists. Having the ability to change angle gives you the best of both worlds: nose down to climb, up for descending. For undulating terrain you can keep it locked into flat mode.

 @kpickrell: Good one! ????

 @gnarlysipes: My E29 came with one. I found it to work quite fine. Only issue was the like 100mm of travel, which is obviously not enough. But I still have it as a spare.

I can definitely get behind something like the switch grade. When they are available I’ll be getting one for sure!

 @yale986: Make a component that slides your seat forward/back for climbing on bikes with slacker seat tube angles.
  • 1 0
 @rrolly: we experimented with that right from the get go but opted against it. Instead, by providing ‘macro’ rotation, the SwitchGrade offers roughly 1.5° to 2° change in effective seat tube angle when toggling between each locking increment.
  • 2 0
 @yale986: any plans for remote switch? Taking my hand off right before a descent, doesn't seem like a good idea. I've taken my hand off to grab and pull up a stuck dropper, hit the brake for upcoming corner, ate shit and was off the bike for a month. Yes user error but also a place I've ridden many times with a lot of muscle memory on braking points, just not grabbing seat posts.
Thanks.
  • 1 0
 @MattyBoyR6: you read our minds! But we figured we'd baby step our way there first. Oh and I hear ya! My first dropper was a KS hand-actuated post and I came close to eating it a few times. I remember you had to fiddle with a lever while maintaining balance on marbles and trying to find the right height - insane!

The difference with the SwitchGrade, and why it's so much easier to adjust on the fly, is that you're only dealing with rotational change vs. vertical. That and plus it takes a second to adjust.

Some early feedback we received was that riders did not want to clutter their bars with more levers. We've certainly discussed this and have some ideas but shelved for further consideration. When.. only time will tell! Wink .

Stay tuned!
  • 2 0
 @yale986: cool. I love the innovation and yeah I thought of the dreaded cluttered bars. Also thought, if I flip the switch remotely, I have to use my balls to weight the seat to nose down. Doesn't sound pleasant but hey I've got weight on the perineum when climbing on a flat saddle. Those KS levers were for sure scary.
  • 1 0
 @MattyBoyR6: haha so true, never thought about 'balls activated' - could be a game changer!

Numbing caused by sustained pressure on the perineum was a key motivator behind the SwitchGrade - something I used to suffer from especially on long climbs.

 Ha my bike is 2015, albeit heavily upgraded, all of my riding mates have got new bikes during covid and I've tried them all, there's some plus sides here and there but really nothing that made me think it was worth shelling out the insane amount a new bike with decent spec costs at the moment.
  • 2 1
 @Lylat: luckily there hasn’t been any big advances in DJ technology and design besides certain fork companies ditching straight steeper (mentioning no names Fox/Marz). So your 10 year old dirt jump bike and my 15(?) year old GT Moto are still going strong (one day I’ll get around to buying a steel bike).

but maybe it would be worth it to see more pinkbike...

 100% agree. I don't find myself watching all the way through on regular vlog type videos these days. But I'll be damned if I don't make it through a solid bike check video every time. It was also pretty refreshing to see some content that was focusing more on the local scene and not sponsored athletes/influencers. I was really stoked on the dude who picked up that full suspension for $500.

Pinkbike and @christinachappetta, make more of these please and thank you!!!!!!

 @blowmyfuse: It varies from place to place, trail to trail. Different land use agreements and permits etc. As far as I know they are allowed pretty much everywhere in Squam... at least according to trailforks they're actually allowed on the dirt bike trails there too while non motorized mtbs are not. Which, if you own one, makes them able to access even more trails, but also makes it more of a joke if you don't as it proves they're actually motorcycles.

 @nicoli: mopeds. Anyone who has ridden a motorcycle knows they're mopeds.

 @mm732 What else should be his favourite ting on that bike other than its defining feature? I mean it's obviously alright on the descents as any new-ish mainstream trailbike. Nothing to see here. What sets it apart is that the dude will do more laps in a day and unsurprisingly he likes that.

I never properly rode an ebike (only in a parking lot), but I imagine that would be my favourite thing too.

 It's one of the catalogue frames, it has been consistently reviewed as a good frame to start a build with and the price is good too. I'd suggest take a look at diycarbon site or icanbikes p9 (both sell the same frame) if you're interested to get it.

 A friend of mine has to travel every year to Taiwan bike fairy, working 4 a bike company.

These cheap frames sometimes use different carbonfiber and resin. Even the layers of Carbon are may not layed the same as talking about alpha frames. The testing and so on.... Watch out, frame break dropping stuff...there was just a video on insta viral, someone breaking China frame dropping...

OH no need of carbon frames

 10:45 Sorry Mate, those are NOT OG codes. Technically that's a 3rd iteration 2nd gen code. The first two series were based off a Juicy master cylinder design in the original and the mkII galvanized. TaperBore (the reason why AVID is no longer a thing) was introduced in the 2nd generation of CODE brakes.

 I think it would be cool to do this around different trails in Canada and the US. I'm in Georgia and my not-your-average Pivot 429trail with plus wheels needs internet exposure, lol.
