spotter: I just checked and my Jeffsy 27 carbon has ISCG05 tabs. Not sure why spec doesn't show that.

reductimat: gonna try a coil? Or fiddle with tuning more?

TRP might be making their brake pads out of vegan thoughts.

That was a great line.

Anyone break their month-old derailleur here?

If only they would make a Meta AM 29er!

Or a 29er version of that new bike. Sorry to link to the other site.

Lost a pivot nut today.  The one I couldn't easily get to, so I left it as it was sent to me.  I checked the fucking thing in line multiple times a day.  Saw the bolt half out just after the step up on Dirt Merchant.

Note sent this eve.  Wish me luck.

In Squish now about to pick up the nut.

Not gonna lie, went to bed thinking the bolt would be taking the slow boat over here.

Cranks are bust.

Not the arms, but the interface between the spindle and the arm.

Have you tried Shimano Saint for all your drivetrain needs?

Do those cranks have the P3 (Polygon) interface?  I had some e.13 cranks on  a Podium a few years back and they were rock solid.  Some play developed?

I think so.. the triangle on the non-drive side?

Regardless, e*13 just went fucking huge and I'm all good.

If you're going to buy a YT in Canada, I'd suggest getting ones spec'd with as much e*13 stuff as possible as they provide great support.

You dealing with e13 directly on this stuff I assume, versus JM? I emailed e13 a question about my wheels and they responded within 10 minutes. Impressive.

Well, I email them both at the same time.

I usually get the replacements from California before I get a reply from JM.

Having one person running the entire Canadian operation is not conducive to the long term success, which would be a shame as this bike is so nice.

On a separate note, I called all the shops here in whis to see if they had any DH crank sets with a pf30 bb in stock. One asked, "What bike is it for?" When I replied YT he got snarky and said, "why don't you run down to the YT shop to get a new one?"  I held back mentioning how last year I snapped a crank arm on a three lap old X01 DH set.  It took a Vancouver bike store three months to get it replaced.

Ha. The one thing Commencal Canada doesn't seem to have is cranksets.

It's nice that SRAM fucked their North American customers so that a bike shop has the ability to do the exact same thing a consumer would do on their home computer or smart device.
