DH Bike Setup Changes - Vallnord World Cup 2018
Looking at the suspension setups for Vallnord, they all seem to go business in the front and party in the back I see...

I wish I could master 10% of your actual skillset, but everyone has got to face their own challenge on the bike I guess. Talking about skills, how did you master those trials moves Jeff, did you learn them all by yourself? Also, how long did it take to build up these skills and this confidence on the bike? Keep it up, those videos are awesome :tup: .

"Smart" Fans, a Titanium Hardtail, & Carbon Fiber Brake Rotors - Eurobike 2018
Thanks for the insights guys, very interesting! Seems that racing carbon rotors are build very differently than structural carbon as seen on rim brake wheelsets then.

"Smart" Fans, a Titanium Hardtail, & Carbon Fiber Brake Rotors - Eurobike 2018
I've seen road carbon rims fail due to temperature, the brake pads melt the resin at the rim and the carbon starts to delaminate. I remember seeing an interview of a carbon repair specialist somewhere saying that as of now, no resin compound can withstand the temperatures encountered during heavy braking. Now putting that into perspective I wonder how a carbon disc brake can overcome this issue.

That semi internal routing is really a neat idea.

First Look: DT's New F535 One Fork
Truly not, just wondering why the need to bury the adjuster under a cap when it could be available for on the fly tuning of the damper?

First Look: DT's New F535 One Fork
"[...] most of us have spent our entire riding lives fiddling with and fettling our suspension. Whether it is something as simple as trying different pressures or clicks of compression and rebound, all the way up to playing with shim stacks and springs, we have all done this to some extent for as long as we have ridden bikes, so to be asked to forget all that is, well, worrying." Worrying, yes that is the right word. Call me paranoid but I can't help to see that covering the adjusters may hide a sneaky tendency to make us forget about the good old external adjusters and sell us "plug and play" fork for all, which in my opinion would be a total fallacy. I personally love to be able to adjust a shit ton of stuff on my fork, if my fork could have more dials than the control board of a spaceship I would take it. Suspension setup, how it affects the overall performance and feel on the bike is extremely interesting and the more, the finer the adjustments, the better the ride in the end. I'd say that people thinking that the adjusters on their suspension are gimmicks for nerds which do not translate into a real world difference should start playing more with their knobs.
