Spotted: Prototype Fox DH Shock - Mont-Sainte-Anne World Champs 2019
Dial by eyelet will be LSR and piston most likely now has a high speed rebound shim stack on the main piston and the poppet will be used to fine tune. So it’s now more similar to ohlins current offerings (i believe all their Moto ttx line is this way now). So possibly also a main compression shim stack as well which would mean Fox is making themselves a hybrid system (shim stack and poppets) similar to an 11.6

Santa Cruz's Really Wide Carbon 29er Rim - Crankworx Whistler 2019
@DarylP: new tall boy out today and surprise it fits 2.6 tires. Tell me again how SC is a wheel company and they didn’t make these to fit one of their own bikes. Anyone with any business knowledge would know your not gonna make a product that can’t be used on any of your own product line. The 29x37 was a dead giveaway the tall boy was right around the corner and would fit wider 29 tires.

Santa Cruz's Really Wide Carbon 29er Rim - Crankworx Whistler 2019
Ok so am I seeing a new 29er coming (maybe a new tall boy?). Currently what in the SC lineup would these work with? Hightower v2 is a max recommend 2.4 tire and only some 2.5 will fit which to me sounds like a 37mm would open the tire up even more and cause more conflict. The Megatower isn’t really made with big tires in mind since it has a lot of actual travel (currently theories go either have actual travel and more direct tires or have shorter travel and add big tires for added suspension and traction). So SC is gonna build a rim that they can’t use on any of their bikes? I don’t think so.

Race Face Launches Aeffect R Cranks, Dropper Post, & Lever
@onemanarmy: I’m 6ft even and the 210 has been really nice on steeper technical trails. Liking it a lot more than 170 and when compared to a medium or small frame my max drop now puts the seat in the same height in relation to my bars as theirs whereas before the seat was alway higher than the bars.

e*thirteen's New Stems and Handlebars - Crankworx Whistler 2019
I’m interested in the going in blind video series. I really hope the oneup carbon bar is included in this blind test as I’ve been really interested in that bar. Would be nice to finally have a blind test done since the last one I can remember was ages ago.

RockShox's Updated Reverb Stealth Gets the Squishy Post-Fixing Vent Valve
@dlxah: IGUS is a company that specializes is plastics and plastic bearings, bushings, guides etc. Modern Fox shocks use IGUS bushings in their shock eyelets. So it sounds to me like OneUp has turned to IGUS and given them the specs (OD/ID) and the application and are using IGUS to determine what material would be best for the given situation since that is their specialty. My guess is it will be a harder material with less surface friction so probably help both issues but that’s just a guess.

@dlxah: last page about 3/4 way down Jon made comment about a new upper IGUS bushing. https://forums.mtbr.com/components/oneup-dropper-post-1075456-4.html#post13627864?highlight=OneUp

@dlxah: might contact Oneup about the bushing, I think they’ve changed its material. Also not related to the post performance but the overall package I am going with the new jagwire dropper cable system with its smaller .8mm cable because I do like the smooth feel of the reverb x1 lever. Hopefully it won’t be missed.

@Nwilkes: well I am hoping the v2 with it’s longer bushing and they have actually switched from what I think was a generic nylon bushing over to a true IGUS bushing so that should help. I believe they have an IGUS bushing for the v1 now or coming soon as well.
