Crankbrothers Mallet DH Pedals - Review
@whambat: good to know about the CB releasing when hit from under and makes sense. I've always loved the feel of Times since I started using them in 98 and currently the mx8 has been the best of them. Also like that if they hit they don't get hung up like alloy pedals like the Z control. Maybe that's shape more than material, might try the DH4 for the v10 but waiting to see more info on the speciale 12 when it's out. Clipped in I love the times it's just when going to a new section or a section I haven't cleared and not 100% sure of I will try riding it unclipped as a "just in case" even though I have never had an accident where I couldn't get out with Times so it just psychological but then when clipped out your not really as grippy as a true flat so it's kind of a no win situation.

Crankbrothers Mallet DH Pedals - Review
Always been a little curious how they compare to Times but only reason I would even consider is if they have better traction because of the pins when unclipped through scary sections. Just waiting to see actual ride reports of the speciale 12, either that or just have to finally learn to 100% commit through everything.

Josh Bryceland and Josh Lewis Sign With Royal Racing
Well I don’t think he’s on syndicate anymore since he isn’t racing (which was fox and still is fox sponsored) so I guess he can use whatever now?

Ask Pinkbike: Back to Flats, Inches of Squish for Enduro, and Pondering the Next Upgrade
@Morebike: please no. Toe clips are death traps, try pulling your foot back when all your weight is going forward and you’ll see its impossible. Next OTB scenario it’s your face in the ground.

The Tuesday Tune Ep 21: Low and High-Speed Rebound Adjustments - Video
I’m surprised to see the LSR have such an effect on the higher speeds. I actually discussed this with a cc engineer way back when and said would the LSC/LSR have an effect because like electricity oil will just take the easiest route so if the low speeds are fully open wouldn’t that make the high speeds INOP and vise versa if the high speed set so soft to open then the low speed would have little effect.. I was told at the time that would be true but they designed it so the adjuster are matched to their range (or similar to that) which to me make sense as I would think it to mean in you set the HSR full slow and LSR full open it would still be too slow for G out return etc. your dyno doesn’t seem to show that. It’s weird though since doing as you say (turning the HSR all the way in) would essentially just turn the rebound into a port orifice damper for rebound. Would it be more ideal to have the LSR slower for chassis stability and the HSR faster for return speed in chunk and resist packing? Otherwise why bother with the HSR adjuster on a 4 way and why bother with shims on a mono tube shock or even a fork for that matter?

Santa Cruz Nomad 4 - Review
@skelldify: you’ve owned the Bronson and new tracer or owned the nomad 4 and new tracer? Not clear what you mean

Felt Bicycles 2018 - First Look
@WAKIdesigns: yea, I didn’t even realize yours was an N1 until second look. Odd I wasn’t too much a fan of the N1 (thought the top tube curve was too aggressive like a beach cruiser) but yours doesn’t look as bent in white, maybe the size. I’m liking my new N4 as well, cool in a different way but the N2 C was just gorgeous with so much attention to detail on tube shaping (like the top of the top tube).

Inside the Float X2 and CCDB Air - Video
@zapats: where did you get that info? I was told it’s behind the seal head with a different seal head part number (that I was given back when it was on the Bronson 1). Which would make it like the RockShox spring (having brain fart on the name). I can’t see any point at all to put the spring on the IFP.

Santa Cruz Nomad 4 - Review
@skelldify: I wouldn’t be so sure about that and I’m an SC fan (6th time SC buyer). Classic upper link driven vpp is starting to get outdated and some other designs are getting better leverage curves. The JS enduro link looks to be a nice update to classic vpp with a better leverage curve. That said I’d take the n4 over the tracer (which I did) but tracer vs Bronson I’d probably go tracer. N4 is more bike than I need but it’s still great just would like to see an honest shoot out between those three as they seem to be the new modern crop of all mtn/freeride, maybe the slayer too.

@WAKIdesigns: always loved the way the N2 looked, I had a white and black themed carbon. Started life with a white 55 and ended with a black pike and looked good both ways.
