Re: Dropper Question: Reverb vs Fall Line

I 've got a recon rack which holds the bike in the same position. I have friends with ns racks as well.

Basically you just take your allen key (or the lever provided) put in in the hole, turn it, push post down, remove key from hole, Release post. It's pretty easy.

Re: Dropper Question: Reverb vs Fall Line

So far I've had great luck with it. I do the blurp thing maybe once a month or less. But I can totally see that happening over time.

Re: long travel wagon wheelers

Yes it is, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

Re: long travel wagon wheelers

my wreck fits on newer nsracks, but not older ones.

Rear tire isn't great, 2.3 magic mary touches the seat tube on hard hits.

Re: when was the last time you overcame a serious desire for revenge

If I'm reading this correctly you can't get a job because you signed a contract saying you can not work for another company in the same industry within a year of leaving?

My understanding this kind of agreement isn't legal and doesn't hold up in court. You may want to talk to a lawyer.

I've had 2 9point8's.. both had issues.

Have the bike yoke 185 now. It's doing quite well.

What were your issues?

Both lose air pressure over time. My buddy has the same issue.

The stanchion was getting scored on one of the units. Apparently a burr or something sharp in the internals.. I assumed some grit had gotten in there.

Inconsistent lever throw, sometimes lots of flop before disengaging the brake, sometimes really tight. My buddy had major issues with this to the point that he couldn't engage the brake.

One came with a missing foam wiper. Customer service wasn't super helpful when I brought this up.

And personal preference, I don't think the head allows me to tilt the nose of my saddle down enough with today's slack seat tubes. But I have long legs and run a pretty extreme angle. Customer service told me to go get a bike fitting.

Re: EWS bike choices

Having had a Trek Slash for a year, the biggest penalty with the big wheels is the extra rotational mass further away from the axle. That combined with the dh casing tires needed, getting stopped up and having to accelerate can be quite painful.

Definitely a lot of advantages to the big wheels though.

Re: is Whistler gangland

I've got a friend who used to work at the delta hotel. Basically the bad crowd comes up from the valley on the weekends. And like ReductiMat says, it's especially bad on American holidays.

Re: Evil insurgent

The weird head tube may not fit on older ns racks. Newer ns racks seem to be alright though.

Re: We Are One

Keep an eye on those project 321 hubs, the magnets fall out of the pawls over time.
