It was game over... when I saw your truck... sweet rig!!
There will be a few floating around for sure but orders placed today for a 9.9 have a late August ETA or 250 days if you want Project 1 colours. Its all over the map... Trek is doing a good job though in the grand scheme of the bike industry ATM.
The new Slash is an amazing bike.... good luck finding one in 2021...
The strips are fine if you run Bontrager tires. We don't see many if any issues at our shop. And they generally work fine with Maxxis tires IME... beyond that I would only be speculating.
Hey Andrew.... its a well (or relatively well) know fact that the Bontrager rim strip does not play well with some tire inserts such as Cushcore. We sell these wheels and I ride them personally and yeah, toss them if you are running an insert. Small detail.
I am running the Pro version on 2 bikes.... more on the slightly stiffer side. Still plenty of compliance and great feel.
As someone with some genetic hand issues and having had multiple surgeries, dislocations, etc I can attest to how well these work, especially in bike park situations... 10/10 from the Russian judge...
Yeah, standard rotor sizing would be good for us shop folk...and bigger brakes make sense.
Not sure SuperBoost spacing is going away anytime soon, but 220mm front rotors are my defacto standard on all my bikes now... for the big boys... :-)
Tread wear is better than FiveTen for sure. I have only tried the 3.0s. I prefer the stiffer sole and higher level of protection.
Hey Andrew... great review as always. I've been rocking the DBX 3.0 flats/Dagga pedal combo since early summer. This to me is a near perfect combination of shoe and grip. I find the waffle pattern has its weakness with certain pedal designs but the overall style and function of the shoes are top notch.
Oh and I love the DBX 4.0 pants... they are amazing.
Good pedals as are the OneUp.... nothing can usurp the Chromag Daggas for pure grip and platform size.... too much grip for some.
Damn.. I am behind!! Totally missed 172x12... must have been out of town. I sell both Pivot and Trek so no more comments... ;-) Oh you missed Evil bikes in that list BTW.
You guys (actually Andrew) penned an article on NSMB on Superboost plus 4 years ago.. link for reference... maybe time for an updated perspective. I've ridden multiple bikes with Superboost plus and I can't say I've ever had anything negative to report.
I am struggling to recall if our rep had it with him prior to booking? I thought we got a quick overview on it but my early onset Alzheimer's is playing tricks on me!! ;-) I have definitely seen it in the catalogue ... it is fully ASTM DH certified as I understand it. I have the current DBX 4.0 helmet and its my favourite full face by far of the many I own or have owned.
