    Also "200hr service" so presumably he'll be pulling the damper apart, resetting the IFP, etc etc :p

    beautiful bikes - post them here

    Yep, love it on hardtails and road bikes, really struggle to get excited about it on duallies, and it's almost always because of the rear triangle. The P-Train with the straight-tubed steel front triangle and CNC aluminium rear triangle was pretty dope.

    To be fair, there aren't a lot of steel dual suspension bikes going around that look really good. Skinny tubing doesn't seem to carry the proportions of a dually as well, and the alternative is a bike that weighs 100kg.

    Fancy coil shocks for Capra. Kitsuma vs ohlins vs Fox

    2021 DHX2 here, 80kg. Really like it. Don’t have recent experience with another coil to compare it to but the range of adjustment is more intuitive and natural feeling than my old 2018 X2 was. Ride is very composed and controlled with shitloads of grip, but with a 50lb higher spring rate I’ve...

    Choosing a decent bike for a growing 11yr old (151cm tall)

    Choosing a decent bike for a growing 11yr old (151cm tall)

    Come on @HamboCairns. A bit of haggling and your boy will have a cooler bike than you.

    Aha almost always, and similarly once you itemise every individual little part, spacer, conical washer etc even simple linkage designs end up looking complex. Still though ;)

    @Jpez after seeing that exploded diagram of the Deviate the other day, all these linkage-driven high-pivot frames scare me now haha. That does look sick though.

    Little Things You Hate

    Ah sorry, misinterpreted your comment above as you wanting 2x or 3x and being annoyed by only having 1x available. But you meant you don't want to have to fork out for the top model to get 1x. That makes sense.

    Little Things You Hate

    Did you guys see the new Ragley BushPig? It has a 3x9 Microshift groupset, Shimano Altus brakes (with Deore levers), 680x50mm Answer Protapers, and Hunt wheels running 2.8 Rekon out back and a 2.3 Ardent Race up front. It's sick. Sold out already, but word on the FB groups is there's going to be...
