150 days on Shimano XTR, OneUp, WeAreOne, E13, Yeti... - Oct. 3, 2019, 10:27 a.m.

I don't believe the Shimano rings are steel teeth with an alloy spider on the XTR. Can you confirm this is true?

Rat-bagging the 2019 FOX 36 GRIP2 & FLOAT X2 - Sept. 11, 2018, 5:36 p.m.

Brad_xyz ; Fox has updated the tuning guide online, hope this helps:

"FOX recommends turning adjusters fully clockwise until they come to a gentle

stop (approximately 2 in-lb/ 0.2 Nm torque) then turning counter-clockwise to the

recommended setting. Any High-Speed Compression settings beyond 16 clicks out

from fully closed do not change damping. While the HSC adjuster may have more

than 16 detent clicks, only the 16 positions closest to fully closed are designed for

use. Any clicks beyond 16 out from fully closed are due to the configuration of the

adjuster and will not affect performance in any way"

Race Face Vault Hubs Teardown - June 25, 2018, 4:35 p.m.


As Andrew points out there are several endcap seals on each hub. I would check there first. These are specifically the endcap seals not the seals on the bearings.

1. pull off the NDS endcap and add a light grease or oil to the lip of the seal.

2. If running Shimano cassette body pull off the DS cap and add a light grease or oil to the lip of the seal. If running and XD body there is no endcap seal

3. Pull off the cassette body and add a light oil to the lip of the cassette body seal. 

You should be able to remove all endcaps without tools. 

Hopefully this will improve the drag to and acceptable amount for you. If you live in a dry area you can also remove the endcap seals all together (but not the cassette body seal), same goes for the front.
