Spotted: BlackBox RockShox Lyrik - Andes Pacifico 2018
@hitarpotar: it was the X1 cassette so hardly cheap at £170! I’d never spend that again on a part that wears so quickly either. I’ll stick with xt now. Much cheaper and no creaking. The top sram cassettes are better being machined from one piece but the price is crazy for a part that’ll last 12 months at best in uk riding conditions. Sram did warranty them no probs though but I sold the third and went back to shimano.

@hitarpotar: sram cassettes are great till all the pins start creaking like mine! Replaced twice for same thing. On shimano now and loving the silence and half the price!

As an owner of rockshox lyrics 160mm,I really don’t think they need a high speed adjuster. I never find them out of their depth or spiking and high shaft speeds. The only mod I’ve added is the luftkappa which really does make a hell of a difference to small bump sensitivity and allows a much higher pressure to be used. I currently run 100 psi with 3 tokens for my 87kg weight. Very supple but ramp up great on big hits and drops. I think the factory high speed is set as good as needed tbh.

Onza Aquila Aaron Gwin Signature DH Tire - Review
@DemoN8: that’s pretty heavy. I’m just curious cos I see lots of heavy guys on here and most bikes are built for lighter riders. Do you go through parts?

The Short, Turbulent Life of URT Suspension
@TheR: urt did feel like a hardtail while standing,which was point. Remember we’re talking xc here not dh. So the urt worked well for the riders who invented and used it. It made the bike more comfortable when seated and while stood up descending if felt like their hardtail. Back then riders where much more skilled with riding downhill on a solid back end. Using their legs and arms as suspension.

The starling beast eye is not a urt but the pivot actually goes around the bb so the bike is fully active with zero chain growth. Hope this helps

You’re missing the point! Pedal bob is never needed. Ever.

Hope Cuts Price on Made-in-England Carbon Bike
@FuzzyL: tbh 4 a week is pretty impressive to me. Hopes a pretty small company. I though there’s literally sell a few here and there. For 5.5k that’s gotta be one of the best bikes out there.
