Bike Check: Martha Gill's Custom Marin Rift Zone - Crankworx Cairns 2024
@Rickos: yep. Makes me wonder what heavier riders in the comp are doing to deal with the same issue? Thicker oil? Different compression shim stack? Or just bottom out the rebound knob and hope that’s enough?

I’m curious about the “fully closed rebound” setting on the Z1. Why would a pro bike have such an extreme setting, especially for a light rider?

@jesse-effing-edwards: it’s no one in this thread, but further down in the comment section. I don’t know why my comment ended up here. It should have been down at the bottom.

Super interesting to see the pulley setup optimized to drive the wheel forward when pumping. Fabien Barel used the same method to win a World Championship aboard a custom Kona Stab Supreme. It’s a theory in direct opposition to the O Chain approach most riders are going to. I have always been skeptical of the O-Chain argument, but admit I have never tried it. I have friends that swear by them tho.

I honestly don’t get all the hate on this. The product looks rad to me and has well thought out design and features. Add that no one commenting has tried ANYTHING from the company, yet they are incredibly confident in trashing it. Besides, Bas is semi legendary here on PinkBike… sheesh guys, aren’t there other people/companies more deserving of your hate and suspicion you can spend your time on?

Review: Lewis LHT Ultimate Brakes - Clones or Contenders?
@RoboDuck: You are actually not correct on a lot of the SRAM manufacturing locations. Yes, the overwhelming majority of their manufacturing is in Taiwan. But they sold off their Chinese factories many years ago. Their chains are all made in Portugal. Zipp rims until a few years ago were 100% USA made and the wheels were assembled in the US also. Prior to the switch to the 8-bolt interface, Quarq power meters were made in South Dakota. So, recently SRAM has moved a small but significant portion of its US manufacturing to Taiwan. However they still do all the design engineering, prototyping, ride testing, and lab testing in the US and Europe. That lab testing includes the production parts. So, they know EXACTLY what’s going on with the products it makes in other places. Whether all of that is good or bad is fully up for debate, but those are the facts.
