On that note I’ve ordered a new 203 rotor because my old one is worn. So. Assuming brakes pads will be hard to get, which aftermarket Saint compatible pads are worthwhile.

Just ordered a set from "Loam Wolf" - decent price. I've used Disco-Brake Pads for years (sintered) and they always worked well.

New suspension bike, and updated components on the hard tail/DH bikes in 2020, so I continue to count myself lucky. I stocked up on rubber and brake pads already (as is my way), so I think I just need to worry about chains at this point. I'll probably start looking now, so thanks for the reminder via this thread.

I ordered 3 sets of the TRP Quadiem metallic pads (no fins) from CRC, after reading that many people found them even better than saints. I've got Deore 4-pots on my hard tail, Saints on my Ripmo AF, and Quadiems on my DH bikes, so those cover all my bases. 

Disclaimer that I haven't had to try them out yet, but they sound promising from the many reviews on CRC.

Curious how these work out for you. I run XT8020 4 pots which take Zee/Saint pads. Lots of life left on my current pads but want a backup setup for later this summer. Need to source some 27.5 DHF/DHR II DoubleDown tires as well in MaxxGrip/MaxTerra which was hard this time last year and will probably be harder now.

North van company, showed up couple days later with a hand written note and a rad price.

Only a couple rides in but been super happy. They rock.

I'm kind of amazed I was able to build up a new hardtail in the summer of 2020. Glad I got that done and I can coast for a couple years with the bikes and parts I have on hand. Interesting interview with the CEO of SC. Thanks for posting.

At 31 min its a long listen but worth listening to the carnage, 400 days out to get a seat, fires causing staff to being evacuated, covid related did you see all the stuff they had taped off like the fridge/ hot plate at SC,seriously when SC can't even source the box to put a new bike in shit has hit the fan,

Bike mfgers certianly arent going under or anything they are going full blast but what will the situ do to the development/ production of new bikes that come out, is the consumer getting the best or WHAT has the maker had to make do with ??

21 might be the year to save yer money & make sure you got the spares to get you thru to 22??

I got a hold of an Offering V2 and a warranty replacement (found a obvious fault in the carbon near the lower shock mount), both within the last month...

seems like there is some stuff getting through.

Also Evil was super easy to deal with.
