Video: $450 vs. $2000 Suspension - Budget vs. Baller Episode 4
@drunknride: to be fair I have used it on other things as well, such as car and motorcycle parts without an issue but they were all bare metal parts, so no finish to ruin, but after the incident with my fork I don’t use it anymore. Could be the finish on fox forks is unique and reacts to it but I’m not taking chances and I won’t use it on my bike or any painted or finished surfaces. The fork looks like crap now and there’s no going back.

@drunknride: I just want to confirm that simple green will ruin your forks. I used simple green to clean my fox 40 and it did exactly what takeiteasyridehard said. It stripped the top coat off the finish and left a milky hazy residue that does not come off. Essentially it ruined the finish of the forks, and yes I rinsed it off pretty much right after I sprayed it on and I also diluted it according to the instructions on the bottle. I would never use it again to clean anything, if your not convinced give it a try and spray down your forks you’ll regret it.

Review: TRP's New DH-R EVO Brakes
@thegoodflow: the brakes were set up properly, and were definitely not dragging, trust me I tried everything to like those brakes. I bled them a bunch of times, I tried different pads and yes I bedded them in correctly, but they were always the same. They were just fine if you didn’t do any steep sustained downhills, but that’s what they were meant for, so like I said they had to go, and my x2’s were the same.

Review: TRP's New DH-R EVO Brakes
@thegoodflow: actually hope did make an M4 https://www.hopetech.com/product-documents/brakes/ Also, having owned two sets of hope brakes, I can’t believe I’m saying it, but I have to agree with Waki. They are very overrated brakes. They look frickin amazing which is what made me hold on to them for so long, but in the end they had to go. It’s not so much that they lacked power it’s that they heat up instantly on any sort of downhill and turn into blocks of wood. They would go from the most amazing feeling brakes with unreal modulation to almost unusable within fifteen minutes in the mountains. I was riding a trail in Nelson B.C. called the paper bag which is a technical downhill with a lot braking and like I said fifteen minutes in and the levers had completely pumped up and the brakes were on fire. Those were my moto 6 brakes too which have a huge master cylinder reservoir and massive six pot calipers. All that brake and they were literally sh*t, even had the braided lines. I rode that trail again with a set of older shimano deore’s and never had a single issue. I also had a set of x2’s and they did exactly the same thing. Maybe the new ones are better, but I doubt it and I definitely wouldn’t bother wasting my money to try another set.

Field Trip: Is Buying a Used Mountain Bike Worth It?
@bman33: for sure, I’m all about buying used stuff even if it needs some repair. I love to refurbish old parts and bikes, that being said, I like to know what I’m buying and the issue they have seems to come from their misleading online descriptions. Had I known the hubs where seized I would not have paid the asking price or even bothered as I was looking for a quick replacement and not a major overhaul and another project at the time. It’s always better to buy used stuff in person and I always do if It’s possible.

Field Trip: Is Buying a Used Mountain Bike Worth It?
They’re a terrible shop, I ordered some hubs from them and they arrived with completely seized bearings, despite the description saying they were in perfect condition. They did refund my money but it was a total hassle and waste of time, would not buy from them again.
