Aren't they part of the 50-01 crew. Have they gone four stroke? 100%? High octane?

Ceramicspeeds design was one bearing at a time meshing into a machined “cassette”, very few points of contact. Compared to the many points meshing in a chain or standard gearbox design. The only reason larger cogs are more efficient with more points contacting at once, is because you are reducing the...more

That's like an old school two roller chain guide plus two idlers!

"Jeff Bezos has two feet and two hands, but he isn’t a human being." Top notch. Maybe the toppest of all conceivable notches.

It's been probably fifteen years since I last serviced my Dorado, but I recall it being very easy, drop in place kind of stuff. Just choose your oil weights and tune. The shim stacks were delightfully exposed and easy to play with. I'm guilty of not ... more »

My DH bike is a 240mm travel 26" using a second gen Santa Cruz Bullit swing arm with a chromoly front triangle. I always wanted to build a 29" DH bike built an Orange swing arm.
