    I haven't got a picture, but if you have a frame you can knock one of the cups out and see. Basically the cup is a round lip, followed by a round section (like a normal cup) followed by a smaller...

    The bearing that came with the frame originally is not the radial bearing you described, it's the FSA 073 (36x45 angular contact) as shown in the picture I linked.

    If they changed it I suspect it...

    You can't do that unfortunately, as the cups are proprietary and have a flat section that lines up with the frame unlike conventional headset cups which are round. Unless you get some matching cups...

    Yeah, I believe you can remove the dial and it no longer interferes (or at least I recall someone racing here on that setup with only the dial removed). Alternatively you can just dremel or file away...

    Are they the two pot variety? Those are some of the most reliable brakes ever made in my book, the new ones have more power but seem to have a 50/50 chance of being problematic (leaking seals,...

    Pretty sure that's incorrect, especially since that bearing doesn't look like the one in the bike. The stock lower bearing is an angular contact bearing (36x45 degree taper), and it looks like the...

    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.

    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.
