I love a slurring Greg Minnaar.

Jordie looks annoyed. George Costanza Yankees job tactics?
(Jun 11, 2019 at 7:27)
Check out the pre-season video of him working with Loris if you really want to see him annoyed!
(Jun 11, 2019 at 9:08)
If Jordi is using the Costanza Looking Annoyed job tactic, it makes me like him even more.
(Jun 11, 2019 at 9:18)
: Everytime Loris shows up I get a little smile on my face because its about to get good.

Communication is a fragile thing. Often, the picture in one's head is not the same picture in the other's head, although the two individuals are using the exact SAME words. These videos suggest some misunderstanding, not intentionally of course, but they are there.
Suspension companies like Fox could easily illustrate (flow chart) basic suspension scenarios on the track. Then, use the charts to talk through the adjustment solutions, their resulting outcomes, and what-if scenarios. Guarantee that the words match the scenario.
More systematic problem solving, less back and forth, more time on track, and fewer headaches all around.

Simple in theory, but with so many different variables I'd imagine it's difficult to execute.
(Jun 10, 2019 at 19:05)
The hallmark of a great engineer is being able to take that sometimes muddled feedback and turn it into real world adjustments and benchmarked improvements. The athlete sometimes doesn't know how to specifically ask for what he wants the bike to do, and the good tuners understand that.

Jordi's basic setup vid is awesome. I'm a keep it simple, set it and forget it kind of guy when it comes to suspension. His tips work for me. Minnaar seems like a dick in that video - he really gives that German Fox dude a hard time. Not impressed.
(Jun 11, 2019 at 13:28)
I’m a big fan of Minnaar but agree that he acted a bit like a high school bully here. Uncalled for, but well, he’s still one of my favorites...
(Jun 11, 2019 at 22:11)
Still pissed he missed that qualification
(Jun 12, 2019 at 1:00)
Banter, he's heard of it...
(Jun 12, 2019 at 4:42)
: Exactly this. There is more than enough material on Minaar out there to get a decent idea of the guy and his style of banter, and I think in that context some have badly misinterpreted the situation. I'd much rather he be himself and throw around some banter and run the risk that folks interpret that unfavorably, than have yet another guy thanking his sponsors and the team and saying the word stoked over and over and over. I am a fan of pretty much everyone racing World Cups these days, but the amount of themselves most reveal is very limited and snap judgements like the above are exactly why.

*We need more candid content of our favourite riders!!!*
*OMG did he seriously just joke around with a crew member in a manner in which I find distasteful!?!?!?*

The whole series is amazing - it shows how this sport is awesome. Just racing against the clock down the hill. I got the feeling we will see more of top suspension brand batteling each other in 10years future. The times are closer and closer and the technology of mtb become more important every year. Unfortunately there wont be another Sam Hill - drifting, having fun and winning.
(Jun 11, 2019 at 7:28)
Sam is still going strong in EWS!
(Jun 11, 2019 at 8:14)
: Yes he is, because at EWS - tracks are more natural, awkward and tricky - kind of downhill tracks back in the days
(Jun 11, 2019 at 5:26)
I love these videos! Fuck music on raw videos tho, even though you think its a great song or whatever doesnt mean everyone else has as shitty taste in music as you. And it takes away from the footage.
(Jun 10, 2019 at 18:08)
Lolol Greg is so drunk at the end of the last episode.
(Jun 10, 2019 at 21:43)
Where are the SRAM and Ohlins videos? They are the ones winning in male world cups in 2019.
(Jun 11, 2019 at 12:44)
Here I was thinking that it was the pilots doing the winning...
(Jun 11, 2019 at 13:22)
They don't have Jordi and Loris...
(Jun 10, 2019 at 15:43)
Now you know where YT Mob time machine video crew landed.
(Jun 10, 2019 at 17:13)
Greg Minnaar talking about suspension in the last half of the video is what I hear in the lift line from Barneys trying to "win" Satudays on the blue trails.
(Jun 11, 2019 at 12:53)
You'd think these pros would know what all them knobs do
(Jun 11, 2019 at 1:03)
So yeah we did all this work and made this whole episode to battle our main competitor Rockshox but then Ohlins won. Go figure.
(Jun 11, 2019 at 12:36)
Episode 19 is the best! Such a pisser. I need a good tech to service my forks too
Love ya Greg. Hope you continue to improve this season.
(Jun 10, 2019 at 15:21)
(Jun 10, 2019 at 16:54)
why do we need dampers just run coil in both stanchions
(Jun 10, 2019 at 21:22)
You could run an upside down coil for rebound control, like a damper but a coil. I bet it would work.
(Jun 11, 2019 at 8:42)
: thats a great idea
(Jun 11, 2019 at 13:24)
I bet you can jump further with that setup
(Jun 11, 2019 at 5:25)
Anyone know what multitool Jordi uses in video 15 on basic set up please?
(Jun 13, 2019 at 6:58)
Looks like a Sigma Pocket Tool Medium Multi-tool
(Jun 10, 2019 at 23:18)
Really enjoying this video series!
(Jun 11, 2019 at 10:57)
The Loris tune cracks me up. I'd do the same, lol.
(Jun 11, 2019 at 7:33)
Best suspension set up guide I’ve seen. Thank you.
(Jun 12, 2019 at 21:11)
What language is loras speaking? It's good! But not in a bad way!

I saw Jordi at Windham World Cup a few years ago. I watched him hand out awesome FOX hats to the likes of Minnaar and a few others. I asked him "Yo man, got any more hats to give out?" he looked at me and said "I don't know what you're talking about." And that's my Jordi story. Later, Gwin won, I followed him to the Specialized pits where he talked to his fans, signed some TLD hats, signed some posters. That's my story!
(Jun 10, 2019 at 21:13)
So you asked for free stuff, because you, like Greg, deserve it, only to be turned away? unbelievable. , , , , , , ,
(Jun 11, 2019 at 7:40)
I've got a story. There was this Pinkbike commenter, who clearly did not grasp the different job duties of a Fox mechanic vs. a Fox sponsored athlete looking to build their fan base, and they told a story that seemingly was meant to show that the mechanic was not as friendly with fans as the pro athlete was. Go figure!
