Added reply in a thread Flatlanders - how's that modern bike working for you? 7/2/2020 2:27 PM

To touch on your original bike considerations I can say that I owned a trail pistol and loved the geometry. In my opinion the leverage ratio was best in plush mode (higher initial leverage rate) than in crush. This meant I frequently rode it in the steeper ... more »

I'd be interested in hearing peoples opinion on steeper seat tube angles. I have tried up to 78 deg and liked it, but I'm in Colorado, so straight up, straight down type of trails. Are people with more flat/rolling terrain finding the steep seat angles ... more »

Richie may have just responded to stir the pot, but I would be interested to see it happen.

If you are questioning the capability of a bike from a small brand go check out their machinist torture testing these things over on instagram. @adam_prosise

Added reply in a thread Tires and inserts 6/28/2019 3:16 PM

To clarify, I am currently running EXO front and DD rear with Cuscore and have run DH casing no inserts in the past. I haven't tried EXO+ yet, but they are next up. The feeling is somewhat similar, but I do feel like Cushcore has the edge here and has ... more »

Being lighter weight (150lbs) I have found I can get away with a lighter tire as long as I run inserts. I still punch the random hole in the top of the tread once or twice a year, but nothing an automotive patch won't fix. Cushcore front and rear has ... more »

To help a little with TRex's speculation. Here are some frame stats that I borrowed from andrextr on youtube. Many of these frames are older models, but this was the quickest table I could find. I can update some of these values later on after I analyze

If he is going back to a former team, my guess would be Mondraker. Seems like they would have some funds available if all the Hart/Saracen rumors are true.

Is that a plastic block mounted to the seat tube behind the linkage to resist deflection at the top of the rear swingarm?

Hopefully this is a sign that there will be a Minion DHR II DH casing available soon in 29".

Fair enough. On the downhill bike I just like the stability and rim protection of the DH casing. Maybe I'll try the DD with cushcore. EXOs have always been great for the trail bike. Thank you for the quick reply.

Can't wait for a tubeless DH casing 29x2.5 High Roller II. Minion DHFs are great, but it would be nice to have some options! A Shorty version would be great as well.

As long as everyone has access to the same technology I see no problem with experimenting. Speaking of, where is the 29" DH fork? I think a lot of us would give this a go if the forks were available. Yes, I know the retrofit options available currently; ... more »
