First Ride: 2019 RockShox Lyrik RC2
"RockShox's engineers realized the Delrin (read: plastic) air spring seal head wasn't sliding as smoothly as they wanted" Why wasn't this figured out ages ago?

Ridden and Rated - Six Takes on the Multi-Tool
Birzman Feexman E-version 20 for me. Fairly comprehensive and the right money. Got a useful knife for cutting zip ties after trail repairs.

Great video. Any chance of a non slo-mo version?

A Year of Wild Riding with the 50to01 Crew - Video
Best vid they've ever done. Well edited and it didn't slow down at any point. Also, none of that hippy nonsense :)

Transition Announces New Carbon Sentinel
@ThomDawson: I love my Patrol. I just wish manufacturers would do a little more to weatherproof bikes. Especially with the environments that bikes are used in! Those Enduro Max BO bearings are designed to withstand corrosion to the races, so should be better.........but they aren't cheap! Also, I'll add that Transitions warranty is superb.

Transition Announces New Carbon Sentinel
@Fix-the-Spade: Well, my frame had wheel bearings fitted not max compliment, which you should use in a frame. This year Transition have fitted Enduro Max bearings. Right bearing for the purpose but still isn't going to stop corrosion. It's like cheese being left unwrapped! :)

Transition Announces New Carbon Sentinel
@HK-Mazur: I spotted a little corrosion on the outside race of the main pivot bearing. So, I stripped the frame down. Hoping I'd spotted it early enough. Bearings had seized. I had a Suppressor before so I know its a weak point. There's no external protection to the bearings. My weight is 13 stone but this issue is nothing to do with riding style or how heavy somebody is on a bike.

Only durability problem I've had my 2017 alloy Patrol are the bearings. I got 3 months of summer riding out of mine. I wonder if any of the frame failures also had knackered bearings? Seized bearings must surely put more stresses on to a frame
