    that quote is pretty priceless. Lack of squeekies, silence, light weight...those are all good reasons. A chain stretches at a rate of IDGAF/whenever I adjust the tensioner.

    Apologies if this has been posted already- I've been away from RM for a few months, but how's this for interesting?-
    The first (?) Pinion geared DH bike?

    (At least I think it is!)

    From the guys that brought you this;


    Comes a new 4th gen DH gearbox bike;


    Whilst this image doesn't show much, a CAD screen shot from their website clearly shows a Pinion gearbox;


    I can't wait to hear more info!

    I am one those guys! As far as we are aware it's the first pinion DH bike, we are waiting on our first boxes and still have a fair amount of moulding work to do but it's slowly happening! Thanks for the interest in it - we can't wait to see it in the flesh. Lot's of work put into this one...

    We've already established it looks flexy and will buck you.

    Yes, I believe this is the official V10C tech/tuning thread.

    I'll start - damn that's a light frame!

    Hey guys, it's been a while since I've posted here, thought it'd be nice to get the gearbox thread back up the list!

    We've been working flat out on getting our bike together - if you want to see some pictures and info on the build jump on our facebook and like it (links in my signature). Help spread the word, we're super excited about this new bike!?!
