Float X2 recall

Just some info on this: issues arose due to people stuffing more than the max number of volume spacers in the shock and running high pressures, in combination with some riders adding float fluid inside the can as well, which led to very high pressures during bottom out scenarios.

In short, Fox didn't design around user error on this and now have to update the Float X2.

The air canister sleeves are also rotating on the X2 shocks. Apparently the new ones have an allen screw to prevent that.

Big White bike park - summer 2017?

resorts make the $ from real estate… easier to sell if they are a year round resort.

Donald Trump... Narcissist in Chief!

Fuck, the guy is so normal. If Obama had been on the bus with one of his friends, you think it'd be different??

this is hardly normal.. you want him to be the leader of the free world? People that put up with this kind of behavior is absolutely striking to me. Common sense is just not common.

Your choice wet cond/light* weight tyre...

Quite a few people I know like to run it front and rear - and some companies like SC spec it that way, too. Funny enough, I've also seen a few companies spec DHF front and rear, but it hasn't been as popular as DHR II on both ends.

Personally, I don't find DHR II gives enough directional control up front on steeps in loam or loose conditions. Out back I like it. Not super durable, but then again I'm also a High Roller fan and that tire wears crazy fast.

Yup… I run a 60 series in the back for that reason. I've heard good things about the e13 tires. I believe Dave is doing a review on those.

We used to order from Jenson all the time when the dollar exchange was more favourable. All the shipping fees are stated up front, like Jerry says, no surprises.

I've literally ordered on a Wednesday and received it on Friday.

free shipping for over $150.

What's Jerry's favourite shore/offshore tire these days?

I like the HR2 in the 60 compound (3C's wear too fast) for rear but EXO's aren't strong enough. Trying the Aggressor in the DD and seeing how that goes. I had a Magic Mary vert star up front and absolutely hated it. Running DHF Minion up front as it's a great tire. Really like the Mavic Charge as well.

Could you expand on this please? Anyone ever go the Jenson route, if so what are their fees?

:deadhorse:

Just did a tire order with JensonUSA. Super good shop and guarantee no hidden/surprise fees. I do find them a little pricier but they will price match anything in NA.

DHR II is a great rear tire but it wears out super quick.

Carbon Rim Lifespan

tech tip:

scuff the carbon with light sandpaper (tape adheres to the carbon better), wrap Gorilla tape around rim and past valve stem hole, heat up a spare spoke and pierce through hole. Voila!

Going to give the Maxxis Aggressor a try in DD compound for the rear. The EXO's don't cut the mustard with rocks.
