Apparently the Maxxis site lists an EXO Minion with the Super Tacky compound. Also no sign of a wire 2.5 3C DHF…must be a typo.

Probably not really noticeable then? I think I need to run more sag which will probably help, I'm still using the coil I was using when I was 15kg heavier :crazy:

more sag will be much more noticeable than offset bushings. And its free.

37.1 lbs. Protype pedals are fairly heavy at over 500 grams. Not the lightest wheels but she gets the job done.

Lightweight [HTML_REMOVED] infinite spring rate adjustability! They've come a long way in DH durability and performance.

Are they going to do a cf rear end for it? needs bigger wheels.

This looks awesome.

Why did you choose the Moon for a DH bike? Less snagging?

Apparently the CF rear end was the same weight as the aluminium. The Moon was the lightest and is really narrow.
