Ask Pinkbike: Ripmo or Smuggler, Powerful Brakes & Tough Tires
@IllestT: I found 780s to have less modulation than M8000. Actually my 8000s work well now. Solution: neglectance. I stopped giving a sht about them, gave them a shitty bleed bottom to top, simply flushed the system, didn't even bother to tap calipers and cables. Lots of oil bottom up, close the bottom blled port, pump the lever a bit. 5 minutes - done. They work great since then. Not perfect but great. Funny enough I wanted to give them a proper bleed like a month ago. Didn't work. Shitty fast flush again and vuolais.

Parent Company of Performance Bicycle, Fuji & Breezer Files for Bankruptcy
@jacobxpaul: it's about which bikes are the most desired bikes in the first place. It is irrelevant whether Fuji looks good on paper. We all know if set up right it can deliver results just as well as any other bike out there. The only fool is the one who expects justice and reasoning in Beauty pagents. Yes marketing is a part of it, what happens at the races as well. Races are marketing too. This is how world is arranged. Sorry. If you want to live according to different values, then stay away from Beauty pagents. Simple. Unless you want a large group of people to appreciate you for what bike you own, meaning appreciate your choice, then well, Fuji is not the best option. If you are bitter that world looks like that then, then you have to find a way to suck it up and then appreciate what you have.

@clink83: they are very good and there can't be a tiniest doubt about it but they won't be competitive at highest level. While Jolanda could possibly qualify to a DH World Cup from a get go, Nino quite possibly wouldn't. If he spent a year training and practicing for DH he may probably have a chance but he wouldn't get into top 20 for sure. I don't give him much chances at podium on EWS either. If there was a discipline for descending a Dh track on a XC bike with raised saddle, then Nino would possibly be a top step contender but... there is no such discipline. It's all a half arsed speculation. Also just because Nino, Jolanda, Emily Batty, Maja are exemplary bike handlers it doesn't mean that rest of the field follows. It's like calling road racers good bike handlers in general based on unique examples of Nibali, Contador or Sagan. Half of them can't nail a brake spot, line through a corner and their body position is all fkd up. There was a pic of contador on BMX for some event for kids, that you can see on various cycling sites lately and comment boards were booming with lunatics who thought that he would kill it on the track that has no gaps cuz he is so strong. Heh, no... If top athletes could adapt so well between disciplines without dramatically changing their training regime it would mean those disciplines are worth sht. The reason I said Jolanda would have a chance against those two girls is that I don't think they are the best "the sport" has to offer while Jolanda is in top 3 in hers and possibly best descender there. We can be quite sure that Rachel, Tahnee or Cecile R would easily chop 15secs of these girls runs.

@COnovicerider: Conscious effort? When was the last time you were in position to break the law with big benefit in front of you and you didn’t do it because of ethics? I will give you an example, a Ferrari cabrio parked with engine on, owner is going into the shop. True story. 100k dollars worth of thing in front of me. Should I jump in? Huh no, how stupid would that be?! I don’t even know how to sell the car. I don’t even know where to hide it. Let’s say I know how to sell the car. What does that imply? It means I know people within crime circles. Suddenly I am in a better position to break the law. But I am not, so sorry, no moral credits for me for not stealing that car. I buy weed in Sweden. Am I a criminal? Yes I am. It takes me effort to break the law. Instead of going into a store or pharmacy, I need to meet some morons in the back alley which look like they could slit my throat. Sorry, they are heroes.

I am 75kg and XT8000 offer me all the power I need. Got Codes and they are just a notch over what I need. A bit overkill but increase in comfort. If Saints are too weak for you, they are either faulty or you may be missing the boat. There is simply not enough grip in your tyres to utilize any more power. Deadlift and work on your braking hygiene. If you want stupid strong brakes Formulas you don’t want fit the bill perfectly. Their piston surface (hydraulic leverage) will quite possibly equal or trump one of Saints

@emponix: hah I did them a long time ago in Poland as a stupid kid. Now I try to find them in Sweden but this year is really bad. I was in a couple of potentially good locations. I found some last year but was too stupid to look for more. As for a trip, I’d do it alone in my car, parked in the middle of nowhere with a plan to sleep in the car. Aim at a few attempts, Try with small dose and then go for more. I know how to put myself in the mood and let go. It’s all about either being on my own or with right people.
