Re: Five Ten Freerider Pro - durability?

I have a pair of the new 2FO flats (1.0, not the 2.0) very light and breath very well. Not as stiff on the foot as 5.10s but so far so good. I have had pretty good experiences with the big Red S and clothing/shoes so I'm interested to see how they hold up. I've had them for a month and a half, not nearly long enough, but so far so good. 

neoprene sleeve is nice for keeping the dirt out of them though.

Re: Xtr m9000 RD 11spd

I had the same thing happen to a XT 10 speed shadow + rear D. I'd say lemon. I have run many an XT derailleur and I'd say it was just a manufacturing defect.

Re: crank length

Zeus, why did you go to 175's?  at first i scoffed at the idea of 5mm making any difference, but apparently it does, and mitigates pedal strikes.

honestly they were on sale and I wanted to try something with more leverage.

Re: crank length

having recently gone from 170 to 175 (at 6'1'', so not quite as tall as you, OP). I must say I really do prefer the 170s, they are on the same bike. I just feel more awkward pedalling the longer arms.

this may be due to running 170s forever, but still, I won't be staying at 175.

Re: Rim Decision

I'm on Stand Flow MK3s, I have no real complaints. I'm stuck in a flatter part of the country but spend a few weeks a year in BC riding and haven't destroyed them which says a lot for me (I'm a good 220 lbs, just me, no gear).

Profile has been nice for DHFs (2.35 and 2.5) and a minon SS (2.35). Non of the tires were the "wt" versions.

Re: Anyone riding a newish Rune?

I have a spitfire (last year of the V2), and someone on here has a Prime (which might be closer to a E29).

My Spitfire is not the lightest, but its not a pig, dropper, aluminum rims, EXO tires and a pike with zero carbon anywhere its about 32 lbs for a large...

all the cliched things about "downhiller's trail bike" etc are pretty accurate, I can't complain. its a great bike. There are times when I have wished I had a little more travel for bigger stuff or really chundery stuff, but the pike honestly runs out of Burl long before the frame does.

Re: Banshee Spitfire or Knolly Endorphin

I own a spitfire and I don't have any complaints (I always ride with a pack, so the bottom of down-tube water bottle mount is a not an issue for me). I have zero experience with Knolly's personally.

Re: NSMB - 2017 - Full Suspension Bike Thread

I'd guess they are the alloys based on the shape where it meets the crank-arm.

sweet looking ride for sure
