Because they expand with heat and jamb, apparently a lot of the initial testing was done in the cooler months in the US.
Didn't know that exact reason !

I just though it was the plastic piston getting compressed with use, maybe add a bit of heat...

The Shimano pistons have 2 rings that provide the clearance, they are easy to skim a bees-dick off rather than the complete piston with SRAM.

First time it ever happened with a Shimano for me.

Taking the levers apart is also a lot easier with Shimano.

Talking to my local LBS this morning about frames. Guy in shop told me that the Transition bikes agent received a container of goodies on Friday and is expecting another late this week.
Flicking through the options on the SuperSports website, looks like its all been allocated or hasn't made the website yet.

Give SS a call if you are hoping for something to appear, they are good to speak to.

Thanks. Just been looking around over the last month at frames. I would like to build something in the new year and I have looked at Transition. Just a list for the moment.

Thats the biggest problem right now, thinking of a bike in the future means planning today.

I know what you mean by 'New Year' but actual New Year is only 10 weeks away :oops:

Put the old chain back on?

Quick search found this, never used the shop before but looks legit.

How did you go with these guys?

When they first came out the nylon pistons used to expand and lock the brakes up in Qld mid summer day rides.
It was only hear say from an engineer in the industry, but I would say there is some truth to it, not something a company would be proud to admit. Tested somewhere like Colorado Springs where sram have a testing facility, then rushed to market.

Just a quick update. These guys were good to deal with and answered my queries before purchase and organised a little discount as well. Dispactched fast however Aust. Post took forever to deliver which is a common current problem and no fault of Crooze.com.
I'd definitely use them again.

Carte d'or what?
Anyone seen the Wolftooth 2deg Geoshift headsets in stock anywhere? Not much use touting their release when they don't seem to have ever had them available on their own website and the usual stockists don't have them.

Nope, was looking yesterday. Tossing up whether to order Works from the UK direct or trust that the "coming soon" banner on MTBD actually means "soon" and not "2023".
