Re: long travel wagon wheelers

Nice ride!! I turn 52 in a couple of weeks. Still shredding with youngsters one third to half my age and keeping up for the most part... you are never too old...

Re: FOX 5wt. Teflon Infused Oil for GRIP. Where to buy.

Any shop with a Raceface/Fox account can order it in... it is in stock.   Or yeah, Suspensionwerx....

Re: Do I have to replace my aggressor with a woble?

Are you using Cushcore?   I've seen multiple Aggressors develop wobbles after Cushcore installation due to stretching of the bead for want of a better term.    I have run multiple Aggressors in the past year without issue, one with Cushcore.

Re: Why did cush core have to be so good?

Will do.. the caveat is that I am running them with 2.5" tires on a 35mm rim... not ideal according to their recommendations.   But after installation and a bit of unscientific goofing about they feel good... will report back after I get some legit ride time.

Re: Why did cush core have to be so good?

I'm trying the XC 29 versions on a new build. I am a bigger guy but surprisingly easy on rims and tires. Looking at a bit of extra sidewall support and bead security as the biggest benefits.

Re: Tire Pressure question

Great question... I think for a similar tire diameter in 29 the volume per contact patch area doesn't change much... not sure I worded that properly?   I would run similar pressures, maybe a touch lower on  the 29s...

Re: How good is your shop?

If that is the result of "professional" work then I suggest you find a new shop.    Unacceptable...

Re: Who makes a decent bolt on through axle

I have a MRP axle on my Slash... does the job.

Re: WAO Faction rims/wheels

We are a stocking dealer of WAO wheels... we have a few sets out on the trails being abused.   I have seen one damaged rim from a really bad case, which would have ended poorly on any rim.    Replaced quickly by WAO under their warranty.    These guys are solid and stand behind their product.

Re: If price was not a factor...would you do AXS?

Already got it... shifting is sublime... its just another battery to charge.   No big deal for me.   Yes, its expensive but its the future.   As for 1st gen. product issues, yes this is a consideration but SRAM has been in the wireless drivetrain game for several years now so AXS is hardly new technology...

Re: pants

The new Leatt DBX 4.0 pants are awesome!!   I've been using them all winter in the interior.. great pedalability, articulated knees... semi-waterproof as well.. I have the RF Agent pants as well and prefer the Leatts... both are good however.
