Has anyone test these on 2018+ Fox 36 non-boost forks?
Originally from San Diego. Moved to Salt Lake City for work and Mountain Exploration.
Has anyone test these on 2018+ Fox 36 non-boost forks?
My 3rd Pair, but 1st pair of the Asian Fit. I'm Asian and it fits well. The other 2 pairs I had were regular fits and they fit decent as well. The lens make everything "brighter", It makes me want to lay on the beach and drink margaritas all day.
How "stretchy" are these?
What is the frame weight w/ or w/o rear shock?
Love this tire, I had the DHF 2.5 on front but switched to this tire to save weight. I run the 2.3 as my front and an ikon 2.35 as my rear on my 27.5 Nomad. Reason why I was attracted to this tire was because of the braking capabilities. Since I run an XC tire in the rear, I need something outstanding at braking in front to make up for the lack in the rear. This tire does that exactly.
Anybody know the weight of these SLX arms?
Finally, a cheap solution to mounting my 203mm rotor to my Fox 36 perfectly. Couldn't believe Fox wanted $35 for the 180mm to 203mm P/P adapter. I love their stuff but come on. Shimano for the win
What is the weight of this crankset? With BB and chainrings?
I remember my face used to be all black and dirty from riding downhill wearing sunglasses. Boom, this fixed it. Protects me from dirt & bugs. This is probably weird but I actually get excited for running into bugs with these goggles - probably for all the times they've gotten me when I was wearing regular shades.
They're light and replacement lens are cheap. Go for it
I used this kit to rebuild my rear Fox DHX 4.0 air shock after I was beating it up on Ski Lift runs. It has all the seals (+ extra) to rebuild it, along with the 5CC/mL fox pillow pack. Will definitely be rebuilding my rear shock more frequently since it's pretty easy. If you think you have to rebuild yours, you probably do. Fox recommends every 30hrs of riding or so - I think I waited like 5 years. Haha
The Red Pedals with "DH" on it will totally bling out your bike. I think it looks the "best" out of all the Mallets. Weight Weenies - Just keep in mind these aren't the lightest Mallets, the other red ones are.
I was using the old school Mallet C pedals for a long while, until one day I smashed it into a rock annnnnnd it was over. Then I picked these up - definitely no regrets. They are bombproof and you can adjust the pins on them. Pretty cool.
My friends usually gag when they "Drink" out of my bottle due to the jet valve. That thing is powerful. Think of a mini super soaker. I've owned both the older & newer podiums. Both works the same to me, I don't pay attention to it much besides squeezing and drinking. This will fit really snugged in your bottle cage, overtime it will start rubbing the decals off, but it still works.
I switch between these gloves (Medium), the Fox Ranger (Medium), and Fox Dirt paw (Large). I've downhill'd in all 3 and all I can say is that the "Gel" works. My hands don't get as fatigue as other gloves. I just don't think these look cool - but that's just me
I love the red. It just looks so cool. The medium fit is nice and snugged. Not a ton of padding though, but will protect your hand in the event that you crash and slide. It's nice and lightweight
These are snugged, I'm in between a medium and large with gloves. With these, I went with a large. I wear the Fox Reflex and Ranger in Medium. They feel nice and protect your hands for sure.
I like wearing this better than having a helmet cam while mountain biking. I've banged my camera on a tree before riding tight narrow single track - totally sucked. Chest mounts are more discrete, out of the way, and you get the cool view of your handle bars! Just remember to wear them high if you ride downhill since you're leaning back hunching over a bit. Only downfall..... why are all gopro mounts so expensive?!
These are good for light XC riding and when you don't expect to crash. They don't get that warm either. I'd say these are made for very low speed crashes, or just basically getting stuck in your pedal clips and embarrassingly tipping over. I might even use these in the winter under my snow pants for riding park.
If you wake up and generally say to yourself, "I'm going to push limits today," get something else. I've crashed at a high rate of speed in these- they slipped up when I tumbled and now I have a nice little scar on my right knee. Since then I've upgraded to sturdier knee guards for the way I ride
I purchased the white 34 because it was all they had, usually a 32. A little loose but holds up fine with the buckle strapped all the way in. I love these shorts. I've crashed in these about.... 6 times already and it is holding up great.
Super easy to use, open up and pour this pillow pack into your fork! I used this to rebuild my air chamber on my fox fork. Just unscrew the air chamber, dump the green oil out and put this in - Takes like 5 mins - I would definitely do it. I also used this to rebuild my rear fox air shock as well.
Remember folks 5CC = 5ML :)
These grips are comfty. I used them on my main rig but ended up replacing them with Lock-ons. I change out my components a lot... Like a lot a lot. When I do that, it's painful to get them off to put in new shifters or brakes. Putting them on is butter if you use alcohol. Taking them off is a little bit of a pain, even when I'm using compressed air.
They last pretty long if you don't run into trees. If you're the type to just slap these on your bike and have them on for a while, I highly recommend them. If you plan on replacing components, or you crash into trees a lot (like me) then you might want to try lock-ons :)
