I wouldn't call them tangible performance gains. I have significant time on both Super Deluxe and X2, and while they all feel a bit different the Öhlins is in the same league now. The X2 offers more external adjustments, whether or not you need such granular control is a question for...more

I'm was running Vee Flow Snap+ (2.6" and a proper 2.6" at that!) front and back on my hard-tail. Still have some of my best times on that setup. Currently on DHF and Spesh Slaughter in the rear for winter fun drift :D

Oh that's a tough call... 2 years ago it was having my mind blown by dropper posts. On my most recent bike it'd be the forks (thanks to some folk here for the advice) Damn you Spomer, I was toying with the idea of some WeAreOne rims with those hubs -

Gave a pair of their composite pedals to my brother - I was very impressed with the quality n grip on offer.

I think the real solution is some kind of EMP device that can be deployed when getting passed by ebike on a climb.

Not sure how it could be done without damaging the Ebike in some way though, something that I do not endorse.

I live and ride in so-cal, estimated 4m in SD county, 4m in OC, 10m in LA, a lot of people! Unless you ride a trail area on a saturday morning, in one of the most populated places in America, you rarely see people. I don't understand all this "traffic" chatter is about, I don't see it-in so...more

I also just put an X2 on my remedy. The bike is much more lively than the stock Reaktive damper but maybe a little less efficient. Only a few rides in so I still have some settings to try but I like it thus far.

@dirtworks911 @jeff.brines @LTrumpore @iceman2058 and possibly @vorsprung is there a downside to the Luftkappe? Sitting a little lower in the travel and a little more ramp-up (compared to no tokens) isn't really a significant downside, especially when the trade-off is a better...more
