Best of 2020: Trevor's List - Jan. 4, 2021, 11:21 p.m.

Hey Trevor,

Do you have more info on the mullet setup on the enduro?  It seems like going to the high geo setting brings the BB up 7mm, and I assumed that it was not enough for the lower axle height of a 27.5 wheel.  Did you make any other modifications to make it work and how low was the BB in the end result?  Thanks!

germans sending a population away to a designated place being a good idea...irony!

Fasst Flexx Enduro Handlebar - Feb. 25, 2020, 2:09 a.m.

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.

Maxxis Assegai DD & EXO+ Tire Review - Sept. 17, 2019, 12:22 p.m.

Thanks for the informative and great review, AJ.  When comparing the MM and assegai, were you comparing MG to addix ultrasoft?  And do you think addix soft is any better than MT?  Thanks.

Were you using less of your max travel after the air pressure change?  Did the o-ring sit significantly lower down the stanchion after a run?

e*thirteen's Updated 2018 TRSr Tire Reviewed - July 6, 2018, 11:59 a.m.

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...

I know that vinyl can be manipulated by heat, but how do you do the really awkward shapes like the BB junction or headtube?  Your wrap looks seamless, but I doubt I could make it as clean.

Save Your Hands? Spank Vibrocore Bars - Jan. 30, 2017, 8:38 p.m.

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!

Schwalbe ProCore - June 11, 2016, 7:15 a.m.

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, again.

I would be glad to pay shipping to Seattle, Washington state if it prevents me from having to replace the stock one every few months. I'd pay beforehand, too! It looks like you have the best solution!

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?

2016 GT Sanction Team: Full Review - March 31, 2016, 7:04 a.m.

Hey Tim, thanks for the review. I'm curious what your LSC setting ended up with on the Float X2. I built up a Sanction Team frame and I had to put in more spacers to prevent bottoming(after HSC adjustments). I tend to run high LSC on my other bikes, but on the Sanction I kept turning down the LSC nearly all the way just get small bump compliance. On big hits, it was excellent, though.

The ratcheting arm likes to attack my fork rather quickly.

Did you get a chance to try these with the cleat pocket intact on flat pedals? I've always been looking for a winter flat pedal shoe.
