Video: The Finer Points of Loris Vergier's Bike Setup in 'Between Two Puzzlers'

Oct 5, 2018 at 13:50
by Steel City Media  


'Between Two Puzzlers' is a new tech series, featuring Fox Suspension's very own internet personality, Jordi Cortes and the eclectic bunch that is the Santa Cruz Syndicate.

The aim is to delve into the finer details of the Syndicate's bike setups, Fox Factory secrets and epic sarcasm levels, hopefully leaving the audience with a new found level of knowledge... or maybe confusion.

In the third episode, join Jordi Cortes from FOX and Loris Vergier to learn the difference between air and water molecules, why Loris stores his V10 upside down, and how to properly pronounce lubrification.

 The funny part is you idiots actually watched the video knowing he doesn't know a dam thing about bike setup's. Hahahahahahahaha

 This will also allow for lubrification of all the bearings at the top of your hubs as well Wink

 @drjonnywonderboy: and will allow your brake calipers to breathe those few bubbles that slowly built up in the system as a part of a natural process. It feels like watering a Japanese Garden with wooden bucket. Full zen.

 Top comment of the year!!!!

 Jordi on Downtempo podcast said that hanging from front tire is best as fully upside-down actually lets oil run straight into stanchion and doesn’t lube seals. Hence why you see his reticence when Loris mentions it.

 I'm thinking the pair of them were well lubrificated.

 IDK if this was just me, but Jordi's sound was way off for me. Do my speakers just hate Jordi Cortes but not Vergier for some weird reason?

 The sound guy was drinking whisky too.

 10 points for matching the spelling to the accent!

 Long time reader, first time poster. Currently, I'm well lubrifcated at an airport and that all made sense. Looking forward to flipping my bike when I get home!

 Lubreated

 Gold. Loris is a visionary

 So what do i do if i am in Australia? Uhhhh...
  • + 10
 That's easy. You are upside down all the time, thus constant LUBRIFICATION for your forks.
  • + 8
 I hang them on the wall. 90 degrees from Northern Hemisphere or Southern Hemisphere. Best of both worlds.

 Kinda odd that Jordi rolled his eyes when Loris said keeping the fork upside down helps lube the fork when that tip has not only been known for years, but is buried in the back of most Fox owners manuals. It does work...keeps the foam rings saturated and prevents them from drying out.

 But the air in your brakes migrates to the calipers.
  • + 4
 @Braindrain: hold your brakes on with an elastic band and it stops that from happening, also this helps some what when storing your bike upright as well, only learnt this trick a few weeks ago and it does help if you have shimano brakes

 The bike doesn’t actually have to be upside down.... I have hooks on the wall in my shop and I hang the bikes from the front wheel with the rear wheel sitting on the ground. It puts the fork tilted back at an angle so the oil rests at the seals but any air in the levers stays up. @Braindrain:

 Probably because those guys get their forks serviced quite often or maybe even daily at the races, thus the foam rings will always be saturated with oil.
  • + 1
 @b-mack:

Exactly

 @ORTOGONAL555: they're always NEW and saturated

 I remember someone in the german forum making a test with a fork without oil seal/dust wiper and foam ring standing upside down.
There are two types of bushings that are/were used: regular bushings and bushings with slots. Without slots the oil doesn’t even arrive at the foam rings as long as the fork isn’t moved a lot. Most bushings today aren’t slotted. I guess the Fox guys tested that too...
  • + 1
 @lukesky: Totally true, but last I checked all Fox bushings are slotted.

 He is one funny frenchie.

 I love the Cesar Milan “SSHHHTTT!” Lmao. Loris seems like a hoot to chill with
  • + 5
 My girlfriend's gonna be pissed to see my bikes flipped all winter long in the living room hahah
  • + 2
 Ha ha. The effect for the lubrication of the foam seals is not better if you do that for such a long time, but this is a good method to keep the social contact to your girl friend over the winter and it helps to prevent your bikes from falling over.

 The microphone.. painful

 Not that I have a favorite SC rider, but if I did, it is Loris.

 What, everyone doesn't flip their bike over while getting dressed to ride?
  • + 1
 If the forks work better after they have been upside down because of the 'oiel' then get Fox to make some of those inverted forks Gee Atherton was spotted with a few years ago.

 what did i just watch!?

 great sequence... I think Loris need Jordi a bit. I like the non serious thing of this 2 professional

 This is terrible timing...I would have loved to see the Rat's setup in depth since he's my favorite rider

 Reveal the secret, is it a pull-push or a push-pull bike setup.

 Terrible sound

 32 hole reserve wheels?

 That was a waste of ten minutes.

 plus the time you spent commenting down here--you'll never get that back.
