Review: Fox Float X2 - Shock Week 2023
Wide adjustment range? Am I the only one who thinks 7 clicks out from closed at the HSC should be more like 4 and finer steps between what is now 8 clicks and 7 clicks?

North Shore Billet Announces New Canadian-Made Talon Cranks
@Canadmos: Shimano is also a good option for BB92s with bad tolerances (most of them) since you can use a threaded press fit BB like Hope which helps with alignment and spins a bit easier with misaligned BB bores. The only drawback of Shimano cranks is that the impact resistance isn't as tough. I have some bent XT cranks but my much more abused Turbine crank would be pretty hard to bend...

Review: 6 of the Best Gravity-Oriented Mud Tires
@GZMS: the same applies for Maxxis DH and DD! But they don't count the layers under the tread. Under the tread they are 6-ply as well. EXO and EXO+: two layers at the sidewall, 3 under the tread. DD and DH 4 at the sidewall, 6 below the tread.

Review: 6 of the Best Gravity-Oriented Mud Tires
@GZMS: no, Conti has most likely 2 layers if you take the industry standard approach, but they count the folded parts as well. And some manufacturers are adding the TPI measurement of each layer up, Conti does that with road tyres which are not 330 TPI, but 3x 110 TPI, while a Maxxis High Road has 170 TPI on each layer. My point is that I don't trust Conti with the specs, they state them in the way that suits them. The TPI measurement on its own from Conti here seems plausible though.

Review: 6 of the Best Gravity-Oriented Mud Tires
@GZMS: No. the threads per inch can not be added up. A tyre won't become more supple just because you add up all the threads from each layer. The 2 ply is just the common way of describing the construction on the other hand, and Conti just labels them differently. With the TPI you can see that they don't really have a different construction with multiple ply layers.

Review: 6 of the Best Gravity-Oriented Mud Tires
The Conti is no 6-ply 110 TPI tyre. They just count all layers and add them up, which makes no sense at all. Same with their road tyres. You have to divide by 3 to make it comparable.
