Added a comment about feature Shimano's Latest XTR Group Delivers Class-Leading Performance 8/12/2019 3:22 PM

I've had this groupo for about 8 months (you could get it from Europe before the delayed USA release). While I agree with everything in this review, I feel like there's a piece of info left out. The bite point on my enduro 4 piston XTR brakes changes on long descents (or when you flip the bike over and upright again). This seems to have been an issue in the past and still is. I've bled these things soooo many times trying to get the perfect bleed, even trying Marshy's from Syndicate "drain method" to no avail. The brakes are amazing in all aspects...if they could just fix this problem.

This is awesome.

Another benefit to inserts is the damping they have on the ride. I would like to see another test added that measures vibration damping.

Will they use DW? Split pivot? My crystal ball says Weagle's going to use his new Orion design on this.

Absolutely stunning build.

I thought the new XTR cassette was supposed to be mated to the new hyperglide+ chain (chamfered links)? No noticeable difference in shifting crispness using the sram/eagle chain with that cassette?

Added a comment about feature These Silicone Lock-On Grips from VP Components Offer Higher Friction and a Soft Feel - Sea Otter Classic 4/30/2018 7:27 AM

Has any company ever played with the idea of using this compound for tires? Or is it impossible to achieve the correct durometer and durability in a tire using silicone (or blended silicone with rubber)? I'm thinking a sticky hydrophobic tire in the wet/mud would be a game changer.

Added reply in a thread Have You Gone from 27.5 to 29er But Then Back to 27.5? 12/14/2017 12:57 PM

I'm only 5'5" and I ride a 29er. I went from a 27.5" SC Nomad and now ride a 29" Trek Slash - both size small and both fantastic bikes. I don't buy into the big-wheels-for-tall-riders argument. I'm short, love my 29er, and I'm not going back to 27.5. ... more ยป
