I wonder if the One-Up bar is a middle ground between a traditional rigid bar and the Fasst bar. Or if the Fasst bar's feel is so vastly different that it makes the One-Up bar feel like any 35mm alloy bar by comparison. The One-Up bar seems to be the most shock absorbing rigid bar, to date.
Thanks for the informative description of the 2 tires. It was really helpful.
I noticed that E-13 is selling the "TRS Classic" tires on their website, now. Do you have any idea if this is just a thinner casing version of the new tire, or if it, in fact, has the qualities that we liked from the old tire: more volume, taller center knobs, etc?
I called E-thirteen but the guy on the phone didn't even know what I was talking about with "new" and "classic", so no answers there...
Loved the article and the back to back comparisons. This is the type of info
that I will skip my bus stop for just to keep on reading for the conclusion.
I've had the vibrocore bars on my dh bike since they came out and i'll be
installing alloy renthals on my low travel trail bike for the first time.
Can't wait to see how my experience lines up with your's!
Hey Andrew, thanks for writing this article I love my procore, but had to stop
using it for 1 reason and I'm interested if you'll experience it, as well. I
always inflated/deflated the chambers with the valve in a position so that the
sealant would not clog up the valve as easily. However, after 4 months of
frequent use, I noticed that it became more difficult for air to pass through
the valve. Eventually, it was so clogged that I just could not get enough psi
in there. I cleaned the valve to clear the latex and that worked with 1 end,
but the other didn't respond to any cleaning. I still love the benefits of the
system so much that I'm going to use it with new tubes on my DH bike. However,
my day-to-day trail bike will just be tubeless now. I also want to see if
another brand of sealant would prevent clogging of the valves, so I can use it
on all bikes again. I was told by a credible source that doc blue is relabeled
Stans and we all know about the latex balls that form with that brand. Thanks,
Wow, that is an amazing solution! Mine has developed play and I have only had
it since December(very rainy/snowy rides). Would you consider selling one,
even without the grease port, for the right price for your troubles?
