Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
@panaphonic: Stan’s sealant? We’ve had cushcore in tires for almost a year now with Orange and it didn’t seem to make it firmer. But I’ve heard of some teams using new inserts every race because of them firming up

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
@NWuntilirest: watch the instruction vid next time...it does work. We install DD casing Maxxis on asymmetric 35mm Carbon rims using cushcore with one little plastic tire pry all the time. Even if you’re installing a wire bead dh tire, you should never be using a full size metal tire pry....I’ve seen numerous alloy rims with the can opener hole from someone using the metal prys and bad techniques.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
@Airfreak: I’m not personally running inserts. But as for impact on wider rims. We have multiple riders on 35mm ibis hoops with 2.5wt, 2.6 minions, Schwalbe 2.5 and 2.6, and WTB 2.5. No negative effects. Some insurance to your investment of carbon rims and a near guarantee of not burping even at lower pressures if you choose to ride that way. A lot of our rides like the dampness they add as well as more confidence charging into rock gardens. As for tires...I feel like Maxxis is the only company to market towards wider rims. WTB and Schwalbe 2.5/2.6 tires have a nice slightly rounded profile and good sidewall support on 35mm rims.

Bike Check: DJ Brandt's Mongoose Boot'r - Black Sage FEST 2018
Chain growth....only way to make it work on a long travel full suspension bike would be to add an insane amount of slop into the freecoaster so it doesn’t reengage when you compress the suspension. This is easier and smoother

From The Top: Öhlins Racing CEO Henrik Johansson & His Team
@hamncheez: it’s not pivoting laterally in the eyelet because it’s turned 90 degrees. Ibis uses a bolt the same size as the eylet and the bushing is completely removed. If you have rotation here, you’re going to have lots of wear issues. Removing that busing there, and creating as strong and stiff of a junction as possible, seems to help reduce some of the flex and binding you would normally see. Ibis uses bushings instead of bearing on the yoke/seatstay junction also. Our ibis’s Have done ok for a yoke driven bike, but long enough use and lack of service still creates wear on the top side of the shaft in some rear shocks. Kona process used to rub material off of the damper body and eat air can seals. This was probably the worst I’d personally seen on regular occasion, but have seen the same issues on multiple other yoke based bikes as well, especially the previous generation of demo 8s. Any new bike with a metric shock will handle this better due to the larger bushing overlap, but the force still exists. Again, the absolute best performance you can get out of a shock, is by reducing any binding and friction, this allows the shock to do its job properly with the least amount of wear on bushings and seals.
