Bike Check: Bernard Kerr's Pivot Phoenix 29 Carbon - Crankworx Rotorua 2019
"Fork: Fox 49; 81.5psi; 6 tokens, 10 LSC, 21 HSC, 6LSR, 4HSR" Well that compression shimstack is wrong then. High speed is going to be harsh and horrid, and disgustingly digressive. Can easily be improved.

Review: The 2019 Banshee Legend 29" Rewards Aggressive Riders
@ratedgg13: I think this is a topic that really needs addressing. Having ridden multiple 35mm and 31.8mm back to back, as a medium weight rider that while heavy on a bike (I tend to need to run suspension with 10-15% sag, otherwise I ride on the bottomout bumper whole time) 35mm offers no real advantages and many disadvantages such as increased arm pump, increased fatigue and increased 'claw'. Despite many company claims of their bars being the same this is false. 31.8 is better. And I shall always run 31.8 onwards, soon I will be swapping my renthals out for burgtec on my trail bike as they are too stiff even imo. Burgtec on the dh is much more comfortable.

Pinkbike Awards: Suspension Product of the Year Winner
Shall we add that vvc is a load of bollax way of saying it uses a leaf spring shim restricter instead of coil spring backed shim restricter. So same effect as other highspeed adjustments done in a minorly different way, and definitely not actually special really.

Review: Look X-Track En-Rage Plus Pedal
On my ht x2 pedals they help in high g situations. Where before with pedals like dx you load up the pedal in a g-out or heavy landing and because it's metal on metal they like to rotate and you end up blowing a foot of the pedal. Where as with x2's the pins dig in not letting your foot rotate when you least want it to and keeping you nice and secure. But when it comes to ubclipping there is enough room to lift up and rotate your foot when you want without the pins engaging.

Review: Look X-Track En-Rage Plus Pedal
Using shimano dx spd pedals for dh, I was constantly buying new cleats as they'd start pulling out of the pedals within a few months, possibly due to having to run them at full tension sp I had some kind of security,as well as bearings shitting themselves within a year. So a few pedals down I gave in and got ht x2, still on the original cleats, no hints of pulling out. Only have to run 2 clicks in from minimum tension to feel more secure then dx ever did and only had one pedal bearing overhaul in the 2 and half years I've been running them.

Neko Mulally's YT Tues - Bike Check
@rzalewski6: try a 2017 orange 324, marzocchi 380 r2c2 Ti, ccdb with Ti coil, hope tech pro4 hubs with hope dh rims, continental der kiaser projekt tyres (tubeless) m820 drivetrain. Hope V4 with braided hoses and 8" rotors. So you know, clearly old hat. Totally not possible that it could have been built up with sensible component choices and proven reliable. Will admit having ti-springs.com as a good friend does help on the bolts and rear coil front.
