    i'm kinda glad they dont make the yellow crossmax enduro's in 29"... i'd buy some in a heart beat, yellow wheels on a black bike looks so good.

    Yeah I reckon it is about the only colour the yellow actually goes with.

    I'd like to think they look alright on my turq yeti (I'd mostly like to think that because I can't afford new wheels).

    This def looks sweet. You'll be landing that double at Cressy no worries from now on!

    I was landing that double at Cressy perfectly, before I hit that tree!!

    I think when riding a Yeti or Santa Cruz the rules of colour coordination are very different.

    Can't get over how good the Crossmax's look with the stealth!

    I removed a small tree entirely from the edge of Cressy the other day. Had a moment where I ended up in the sand on the outside of a fast, flat corner and went waaaay too wide.

    Took out the tree at speed and thankfully it was dead and rotted and simply snapped (rather than snapping me or the bike).

    Interested in your thoughts on the corset. I'm thinking of adding a corset or evol to my CTD

    Hit up boomking, it was on his rune before Azza got it. By all accounts he was impressed by it. But he should be able to compare it before corsetting,to with corset, to coil.

    Yeah I think I might have seen pics of it on Google. It comes up when you search "Black Rune with Crossmax".

    Looks the goods Azza, nice work.

    The Corset transformed the CTD, was the best bang for buck upgrade I've ever experienced. Gave much better small bump and break away. Better mid support and no bottom out issues. Better grip everywhere.

    Have changed to an RC4 coil, thanks to Waldog, which was like the change from regular can to Corset but turned up to 11.

    I was well happy with the Corseted CTD though. I must admit that during the change to coil I did find out that, according to Keith at Banshee, I had the CTD set at closer to 40% sag than 30%. He suggests setting sag according to the suspension rather than shock stroke. I suspect the Corseted CTD would have been even better had I had it set properly.
