Video: How to Simply Set Up Your Shock
In my (little & humble) experience in setting up bikes using linkage software and dynamic sag measurements, I found rear suspension is always going to be soft when using the described method. It’s a very descent starting point - but with modern bikes fairly high starting leverage and somewhat progressive linkage 30-35% on the shock equals to 35-45% on the rear wheel (depending on frame design of course) - which is just way to much for faster riders. I’d aim for no more than 28% on the shock (Seated (dropper down!) or standing doesn’t make a significant difference on modern bikes with seat angles steeper than ~77deg)

~10% progression (even when measured from sag) is nowhere near enough to run a coil in my experience. It’s not even enough for modern high volume air cans.

12spd + lower Idler. There’s nothing you can do about it ;) Two links more and the chain wouldn’t be tensioned in the smallest 10t sprocket

@Fill-Freakin: more pressure does not reduce rolling resistance on bumpy terrain. It’s r ather the other way around (to a certain degree)

Bruni on Argotals? Doesn't look like a Hillbilly from the tread pattern and the sidewall is very Conti-esque

Pinkbike Primer: The Enduro World Cup Heads to Leogang for the First Time
embarrassing for Austrian mountainbiking. Bergstadl and Matzalm are descent trails, the rest is braking bump heaven

Group Test: 14 of the Latest & Greatest Flat Pedals Reviewed
Not sure when they came out, but I'm surely over 10 years on my OG pair and on the second replacement sets of bearings. Excellent grip with the new thinner steel pins and only pedal (to my knowledge) which fully runs on cartridge bearings

@jostaudt: probably because the bike sponsor has no smaller option ;)
