Ride bikes for fun because it is fun and I like fun. Racing is fun too so I do some of that for fun also. Fun is fun.

Spartan vs Spartan: Devinci Enduro Team Bike Checks
Just want to be clear I don't want this to turn into some ugly argument, I'd much rather prefer a knowledgeable and polite conversation, so I apologise for my rudeness in my first comment. I'm not debating the manufacturers recommended settings, rather the use of sag strictly to find the correct spring rate. As for using air or compression, at the first EWS Rototua round, PB did a bike check on Nico Vouilloz, and found that he uses a lower than normal spring rate, yet relies heavily on compression to keep his suspension in the manufactures' "butter zone", compare this to Aaron Gwin who used to, but has since softened a little, run a famously and incredibly high spring rate, and obviously with little compression dampening to keep his suspension in the recommended zone. There is always more than one way to skin a cat.

@danny222: @danny222: Bruh do you even know suspension? If you did you would know that sag is to be ignored, you do not set your pressures or spring size/preload to achieve your perfect sag. Sag is useful when you first get on and you use it to get a general spring rate, but it is not the be all to end all and 20-25% front 30% rear is most definitely not going to work for everyone. I can guarantee that Aaron Gwin does not jump on the scales then pick up a shock pump and set up his suspension according to his weight, doing so would mean it is not correct for his style. When it comes to setting suspension up properly, forget sag completely, use it only to get a base then adjust until it feels right for you, otherwise you are doing yourself no favours.

OWN FR-01 Flat Pedal Shoe – Review
@PLC07: Don't downvote me becuase I mentioned the big S, but their 2FO shoes have been great for me, 2 years old, still in great condition, granted i use the clip version, but apparently they are reasonably grippy. Very comfortable,well ventilated and the toebox has saved me from many a blackened toe. I'd say worth a look if you havent already.

Final Results - Lourdes DH World Cup 2017
Qualifying faster means you go down later and get to see hear what everyone is doing, it has advantages, the track can dry out and you can get more information on things, you can get an idea of speeds that everyone else is doing so that you aren't guessing about how fast you think you need to go to win.

Was it just me or does the graphic design for the Helm look a lot like the current Rockshox graphics??
