Review: Vee Tire Co's Super-Sticky Flow Snap WCE Tires
Yup, I tried flimsy EXO and such few years back when I started Enduro, rapidly started to use the tires of my DH bike, never looked back. And I don't need a pool noodle in my wheels either so it's a win-win

Review: Vee Tire Co's Super-Sticky Flow Snap WCE Tires
when you can easily find some MagicM, DirtyD, DHF or HR2 with the right compounds for sub 40€ on the interballs. Only way I'd try those Vee Tires are if they were 30€ a tire. Maybe it is time some tire company open their eyes and go direct sales like bike brands.

Remembering Stevie Smith, 1989-2016
Genuinely don't understand all the noise about this. The guy was a good rider, not even the best, sure he did some good stuff in his local community, apparently he was friendly, and he didn't die riding his MTB. So what's all the fuss for ? Many many guys like him happen to die only difference is they are not top 10 WC rider, many mourn for those guys but no media about it is there ? Especially not 3 years on. Such BS really especially as 99% of the guys making the fuss aren't family or actual friends, just following the trend, posting something they don't really care about and forget about the man 2min later like for every other dead celebrity, ridiculous really.

Review: DT Swiss F535 One Fork
@bikegreece: that is nonsense really. You may want a high-end fork for slow people putting the emphasis on crazy comfort and grip at slower speeds, that still means performance cartridge, chasi and low stiction components which adds up. Low end forks are often high friction and bad comfort, making them almost more suited to hard chargers than easy going people.

Review: DT Swiss F535 One Fork
@vinay: yes I am. Take a women that is racing at WC DH level below top 5 and compare it to what guys do, the gap is huge. I remember beating some girls at local races while those were doing some WC, by no means i've been anything else than average sunday rider. And EWS level is way below WC DH especially in the girls.

Who cares about weight seriously ? Plus considering bigger wheels over your 2012 fork hence longer legs and such, few grams over isn't really shocking.

X-Fusion Shox Announces H3C Shock & Coil Spring System
@NotNamed: i contacted Lemonshox to try to get a apring for the RV1 fitted on my Fury2019 and while he answered at the start once I confirmed I wanted the spring it was a big let down. Been 3 weeks now, bike park opens this weekend so I fitted a Boxxer spring which fits ok, i will have to trim 2cm off and it will be perfect. Definitely not impressed by Lemonshox and the general lack of parts in Europe. Anyone know if 36mm SKF seals would fit on the RV1 ?
