Fox Transfer 150 - 30.9 Post

$150 USD
Post works great. Only selling because I switched frames and needed a different size.

First Look: Intend's Hover Shock - Garda Trentino 2019
@fluider: Cane Creek did actually use 16mm eyelets with a spherical bearing / DU waaaaaaay back in the day, but they got away from it at some point. I think Ohlins, is using sphericals on some of their shocks, or at least they were when they first released their mtb shocks. Seems like with the amount of funky designs and the likelihood of frames not being perfectly aligned to begin with spherical would be the standard...

If it's attached to a proper suspension design that doesn't make the damper a structural component (cough*specialized*cough) of the frame, then it doesn't matter. You only see issues related to shafts breaking on mtb shocks because of bad designs that use a fixed point to connect the damper as opposed to two eyelets that can rotate.

Review: 2019 Swarf Contour 29 - A Hard-Charging Short Travel Fully
32 lbs is considered heavy? Damn, that's a solid 3.5 lbs lighter than my Fugitive...

Opinion: Carbon and Aluminum Wheels - Does Stiffer Always Mean Better?
Just get I-9 system wheels with aluminum rims if you want stiff wheels. Their 32 spoke chassis with an alloy hoop is just as stiff or stiffer than most carbon stuff build on j-bends.

TOR's Clever Stem and Easily Rebuildable Pedals - Taipei Cycle Show 2019
@TheOriginalTwoTone: That could potentially work to get the alignment, but if the key-way prevented the stem from being able to twist in the event of a crash that could cause other problems. I don't get why anyone is that concerned about it anyway, just eyeball it. Who cares if it's some tiny degree off, no suspension bike itself is perfectly straight anyway. Also you're placing a ton a faith in a whole bunch of different companies making different products somehow keeping the same alignment. What do you do if your stem is locked in a key-way but not straight?

Review: Industry Nine's New Hydra Hubs Have 690 Points of Engagement
@Joeshreds: The example is useful in that it proves the only point I was arguing, which is that the I-9 spoke is stiffer. But thanks for adding a bunch of misinformed opinion to the debate, then debunking your own argument about spokes failing from fatigue. Of course steel has a better fatigue life, but that's still irrelevant to the conversation and I never argued that to begin with.

Review: Industry Nine's New Hydra Hubs Have 690 Points of Engagement
Hahaha,ok guy! Please tell me what basic engineering calculations you’re referring to. Outside diameter is an enormous factor in making a cylinder stiffer. You’re basically arguing that a quick release skewer is stiffer than a through axle. You can do a super simple test using any steel spoke next to an I9. Use the edge of a table and hang the same amount of weight off of each and see which one deflects more. No one said anything about fatigue life, but I know people ten years in on wheel sets with same spokes still on them. All spokes on bicycle wheels get broken from outside forces, no one rides anything to point of breaking from fatigue. You also seem to be failing to grasp that as a system the 1 piece aluminum spoke design makes for a much stiffer wheel than any j-bend ever could. The j itself is a stress rise and weak point on the spoke. It also moves where it’s hooked into the hub shell when under load. The threads cut into a steel spoke become the thinnest and weakest point on the spoke. An I9 spoke tapers so its at it’s thickest where the threads are cut. A spoke nipple also allows for movement under load. So, the 1 peice aluminum spoke eliminates 2 weak spots on the spoke itself and also eliminates 2 flex points, one at the hub and one at the rim. Even if the spoke itself wasn’t stiffer, which it most certainly is, the 1 peice straight spoke threaded directly to the hub is inherently a stiffer, stronger wheel. @JohanG:
