    If you want to attack this analytically, fit on a bike assuming the same component setup is a function primarily of reach and stack figures. Geometrical factors outside of this will affect how the...

    Do you know the mfg of the new oil and its viscosity in cSt?

    The bottle may be a giveaway if anyone has a photo, as the 'green' uses a Torco bottle, and the 'red' a Silkolene bottle as per their...

    You have to remove both rear braces entirely, it is very simple. Just smooth out the cut edges when you are done to remove any stress risers. If you do not remove both braces entirely it will hit the...

    I didn't say it affected wheelbase, not sure where you're getting that. Essentially I've just found I hit a limit on how long a bike I can physically get around a corner, and bigger wheels will make...

    Just a quick reply, Sandwich:

    - Trail changes in 27.5 specific forks (at least Fox) actually extend rather than shorten the wheelbase.
    - Contact patch lengthening = effective distance from start...

    The other thing about big wheels is that most people don't actually ride WC level courses, and thus have to deal with tight corners that limit the useable bike length and favor a more nimble setup....

    Not necessarily - high pivots also have plenty of drawbacks, the number one factor being that you get a massive shift in rider COM under compression, and being a forward shift it's the least...

    I think there's a huge tendency to blame the bleed when the brake is at fault, I'd definitely start by not blaming that / yourself. I read way too many threads where there is an actual problem with...

    I've seen the XTR Trail levers (on M810 / M820 calipers) do the exact same thing so I'd say the problem is indeed at the lever, but the 4-pot calipers exaggerate issues a lot more as the greater...

    I had the XTs of the same generation do it as well, and my friend reckons his M810s have done it also (although my M810s were fine apart from the stupidly long throw that all M810/M820s have). By...

    The problem is definitely with the brake in every scenario, not the bleed. Believe it or not it's virtually impossible to bleed anything (brakes, shocks) completely free of air, and their older...

    We've seen approximately a 50% failure rate on the new XT (M785) brakes here, with some sets failing out of the box with leaking caliper seals. Shimano refuse to warranty them so riders are either...

    Cornering is for plebs, lateral stiffness is all that matters.

    My DH bike is a drag car and yours should be too.

    Care to elaborate on exactly what you feel changes?
    Performance could refer to a myriad of things.

    Yeah that's understandable, the 2008 frame should have the little notch in the lower link to clear the original shape Vivid R2C from factory (it was added in 2008). If you can post a pic of the link...

    No RC4 will fit a stock Sunday lower link, you need to remove both braces completely for the shock to fit. I have seen people try leaving a small amount of material in the bracing and damaged shocks...

    There's someone on here I vaguely recall being distinctly good at this, but can't reveal who right now.

    I highly doubt that the torsional stiffness values are anywhere near that of a 40.

    It would be good to see some actual numbers on stiffness, Americans are so full of it when it comes to that stuff...

    It's definitely not an issue, if anything on those forks I found it a little annoying that you were limited on how high you could get the a2c for steeper tracks (due to the external taper). I...

    Seb,
    I would play it based on the tracks you ride, but as ustemuf suggested above, I'd lean towards an XL. If your riding involves a lot of tight corners the L will probably work better, but apart...

    I think the key point you can take away here is that the range of available curve compensation in a shock is very minimal. It means you can slightly improve bad characteristics, enough so to notice,...

    Apologies if my post sounded a little harsh, my point was that there are so many good frames these days that there's no need to buy an awfully regressive one. I actually disagree that regressive...

    Those bikes aren't excessively low in leverage, stock tunes work fine on the Legend in my experience and a couple of intermediate compression shims disabled on the Rune should do the trick. I'd say...
