Just wondering what spring rates people with Öhlins shocks are using? At full HSC compression and 3 clicks out from full LSC I found my bike still bottoms out harshly with a 400lb spring and my modest 80kg including gear weight.
Trails at Hazo are running ok at the moment but could still use a bit of love. Definitely worth a few dig days to get them going properly again. let me know if anyone'e keen to meet up and build/ride.
I was surprised to see that quite a number of brands, Specialized, Rocky Mountain, Intense, are still pushing their 29'ers this year and seem to be emphasising their shredding capabilities. Got me wondering if perhaps we might see some 29" DH bikes in a couple of seasons. Anyone got any thoughts?
Want an AM rig and have been wondering about what sort of hardtails have been coming out these days in the AM market. The NS Eccentric looks pretty good, anyone ridden one? Basically I want a bike I can thrash and still boost jumps and the like while I'm doing the xc loops.
A very strange season indeed. After Steve Smith's dominating end to last season with truly resounding wins in both Mt St Anne and Leogang, he was definitely on another level to the competition and would have to have been favourite to take it this season. But, as had been the case for Hill in...
So I'm thinking about riding a couple of the greats of the WC circuit in August and was wondering if anyone has ridden Val di Sol and/or Schladming and might be able to give me some tips on getting there, places to stay etc. Will be travelling alone so hiring a car is out of the question.
Forgive me if this has been covered already but how exactly is enduro timed? I noticed on the recent dirt tv enduro vid they showed the stage winners and times were from 4 - 7 mins per stage, I don't understand how the rest of it is timed and how this contributes? In the end the end of the vid...
Looking to buy a new dj bike and I think I'll go with the one of these. Noticed the geo is slightly different between the two and just wondering if anyone has ridden both and can give me some feedback as to whether the changes in geo are very noticable (I've ridden a p.3 in the past and like the...
Rode my friends M9 yesterday which on account of the Angleset is around 62 degrees. Quite liked the slack feeling of it and got me wondering about an Angleset in my 2013 Demo 8. Was thinking a degree or degree and half offset. Anyone done this? Good? bad?
From what I can gather, the changes made to the new RC4 should make it suit the Demo better than earlier RC4s (please correct me if I'm wrong). Has anyone put one of the new RC4s on their Demo? If so, good? Bad?
Interested to hear from anyone who has ridden a 2014 RC4 and who has also spent time on the earlier versions. Curious to know if the list of improvements for the 2014 shock are actually noticeable and not just marketing bs.
